Back in October, Empire Magazine released their list of the 500 Greatest Movies of All Time. /Film commenters were in disagreement over many of the rankings. I just noticed that Empire has released their list of the 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time. I’m not going to reprint the entire list, but here are the top 25:

1. Tyler Durden (Fight Club)
2. Darth Vader (Star Wars trilogy)
3. The Joker (The Dark Knight)
4. Han Solo (Star Wars trilogy)
5. Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs)
6. Indiana Jones
7. The Dude (The Big Lebowski)
8. Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Carribean Trilogy)
9. Ellen Ripley (Alien Quadrology)
10. Vito Corleone (The Godfather)
11. James Bond
12. John McClane (Die Hard)
13. Gollum (The Lord of the Rings)
14. The Terminator
15. Ferris Bueller (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off)
16. Neo (The Matrix trilogy)
17. Hans Gruber (Die Hard)
18. Travis Bickle (Taxi Driver)
19. Jules Winnfield (Pulp Fiction)
20. Forrest Gump (Forrest Gump)
21. Michael Corleone (The Godfather)
22. Ellis “Red” Redding (The Shawshank Redemption)
23. Harry Callahan (Dirty Harry)
24. Ash (Evil Dead)
25. Yoda (The Empire Strikes Back)

You can head on over to Empire for the other 75. I love Fight Club but — Tyler Durdan over Indiana Jones? C’mon. There is a lot to disagree with, so lets have at it.

Discuss: Who shouldn’t be on this list? Who deserves to be higher? Who doesn’t deserve to be as high as they are?
