I am going to mix in the love of a wonderful movie with my Favorite Character today. Yes, this movie being The Princess Bride.
At the beginning of this movie I didn't care to much for the girl, Buttercup, though she did grow on me as the movie went. However I, like many girls, fell in love with Westley (although he is not my Favorite Character today). He was a caring, loving farm boy who truely loves Buttercup. Buttercup knows as well that Westley is her lifes one true love.
Buttercup is kidnapped by a small gang of men. This small crew seems unlikely. The tiny man at the bottom is the "leader" of the pack and he feels he is the genious. Then you have Inigo Montoya, this is one of my Favorite Characters this week. He is the one whose father was killed by a man with six fingers on one hand, and is looking to get revenge on this man. To me he is very determined and thinks things through well. He has it all planned out what he is going to say when he meets this man, Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. And he is very calm while he says it. His personality is always very helpful and caring while always looking. Then we have the loving giant at the top of the picture. Even though he is big he is gentle. Have to love him, and the way he says My Lady to Buttercup.Now, these are my Favorite Characters today! I love this old crazy couple, Valerie and Miracle Max. This couple is played by Carol Kane and Billy Crystal, and maybe there styles are part of the love I have for these two characters. They do not have a lot of scenes in the movie, actually it is just one scene. But I loved the whole thing from calling her the crazy old woman to using the air blower to push air into Westleys' lungs and the hilarious arguement between the two about if Westley said true love or not. I loved the crazy bickering between these two, but you could tell they were perfect for each other, and the love was there.
