I think that's pretty cool, but I'll have to go back and read the thing all the way through before I can say much else. No time at the moment...

Disagree. Horrible list. Doesn't even mention anyone from The Village, and there were some greats in that movie. If people keep responding to this, I'll post a list of my top 10
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

ok i tell u what, i don't have time to put them in order but i think i can narrow it down to about 10

Lucius Hunt (The Village)
Mr. Walker  (The Village)
Finton Coin (The Village)
Noah Percy (The Village)
Mr. Glass (Unbreakable)
Merril Hess (Signs)
Bo Hess (Signs)
Ray Reddy (Signs)
Cleaveland Heep (LITW)
"Julian" (The Happening)

I know you may be wondering "why so many from The Village and no one from Sixth Sense?" Well there werent a whole lot of characters even in 6th sense, but there were many many strong characters in the village. LITW also had a lot of characters but they just didn't make the list. It was a tough call between Finton Coin and August Nicholson for the final spot in the village (didn't want TOO many) I made the list strictly based on how interesting, original, or endearing the characters were and not necessarily on the lines they had or how much I liked their acting. (that would be a different thread)

How could I not? I just love all of them. It's just such a powerful movie. Well . . . okay, I don't really like Ivy's older sister if I have to pick a least-favorite.

Hehe, Ivy's sister is funny. Reminds me of most girls I know. Annoying, yes, but amusing nonetheless.

I'm glad someone else out there appreciates bo hess's character :D

"there's a monster outside my room. Can I have a glass of water?"

such a ridiculous line until the end of the movie.

Oh wow, I have never thought of that line in that context.  That is awesome!

Teehehehe. I love that line. That was the reason I watched the movie in the first place if I remember correctly. I was watching the trailer and went "Whaaat?!?!?"
