will1000 -> Best Character Names! (1/2/2012 6:56:19 PM)

Having viewed some Dickens adaptations recently I noticed just how quirky and awesome some of his character names are (Mr Smallweed, Mr Tulkinghorn Mr Guppy etc...). It kind of reminded me of the Coen Brothers approach to naming their characters, so I'm wondering what people consider to be the best character names in cinema!

I'll start.

Freddy Reidenschneider
Jesus Quintana
Wheezy Joe
Egon Spengler

superdan -> RE: Best Character Names! (11/2/2012 2:32:49 PM)

I must be the only person in the world who thinks Snake Plissken is a crap name. For me, it has to be either Indiana Jones or Raleigh St. Clair.




Uncle Luke -> RE: Best Character Names! (11/2/2012 7:58:01 PM)

I've been lucky enough to read the new Tarantino western script, and the names he has for the characters are so perfect, wait til you see this flick...

I'm with you, I've always hated "Snake Plissken" for a name.
