Interference's Favorite Movie Quotes, Badasses, and Other Nifty Lists - Voting Thread

This idea sounded more fun to do than TV Shows, that one will have to wait. This thread will work a little differently than the last two. Each entry in the category will be assigned a point value (#1 gets 5 pts, #2 gets 4 pts, etc...) and the ones with the most points will be in the final lists. Since there are so many categories, each list will be a Top 5 instead of last round’s Top 10. Here you will be voting for your 5 favorite Movie Quotes, Badasses, Female Characters, Villains, Action/Adventure Flicks, Comedies, Sci-Fi/Fantasy Flicks, Dramas, Comic Book Adaptations, Horror Flicks, Underrated Films, and Overrated Films, and Soundtracks. You can’t use the same movie twice in any of the film-centric categories, but you can in the soundtrack/character/quote-centric ones (ie: Batman in Comic Book Adaptations AND Action Flicks is a no-no, but you can do The Joker in Villains and Batman in Badasses and Danny Elfman’s score in Soundtracks.) You don’t have to submit entries to every category, although it would make the end result better.

Please submit your lists in the format listed below, it makes tallying everything up at the end so much easier:

Movie Quotes: (single lines or monologues from one character)
1. “You lose! Good day, sir!” (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)

4. “I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley” (Airplane!)
5. "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die." (Blade Runner)

Badasses:
1. John McClane (Die Hard)
2. Han Solo (Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope)

That's cool.

What I meant with the "No Movie Repeat" rule was that something like Aliens could count as Action or Sci-Fi, so it's just better to pick one.

Oh, and like the last contests, you can re-submit your list any time before the end of the voting period.

Fuck, I forgot to finish the "actor" part of the character submissions. I'll fix it later I guess.

Female Characters was originally Hottest Chicks, but that's severely limiting and a little misogynistic.
