TOP 10 MOVIE HEROES
This will be difficult as I often end up liking the villains portrayal more than the heroes. But here we go, and I'll be borrowing from books if I can't make up 10.
1. Fezzik from The Princess Bride
What could be more heroic than a giant who ends up saving the day? Plus he has a gift with rhyme, some of the time.

2. Tristan from Stardust
From a know-nothing shop boy to a real hero by the end, this is a great movie and includes fantastic characters. Robert DeNiro does completely steal the movie though.
3. Hermoine Granger from Harry Potter
I identify with Hermoine's character very much. Especially the geeky, answering all the teacher's questions part. I'd love to say I could be as brave as her, but I have never been tested that way. Emma Watson embodied this character for me.
4. Clarice Starling from Silence of the Lambs

This was not a good book to read, but the film was fantastic and Jodie Foster was amazing as Agent Starling. Plus a total hero.
5. Veronica from Heathers
Veronica goes from me the hanger-on for the cool girls to hanging with a bad boy and then she out and out saves the school. Plus she saves her one real friend, the only one that's half decent, from killing herself. Definitely a hero.
6. Erin Brockovich
This is based on a true story and Julia Roberts acts the hell out of it. You don't have to like her character to know how much she's a hero, in real-life no less!
7. Black Widow
Although I'm not thrilled with the plot in the last movie for her character, she's still bad-ass and no one can out-think her. And they finally are making more toys for her character.
8. Ripley from the Alien series
A great survivor from the movie series, although the series got a little weird in some points. But she can kill horrible monsters and still have a pet cat.
9. Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird

A great hero and a really moving portrayal by Gregory Peck.
10. Oskar Schindler from Schindler's List
Another based on real-life story, this portrayal of Oskar Schindler by Liam Neeson was very moving. Definitely another hero.
I hope you liked the list, and who's your favourite movie hero?
