    With all the showdowns going on I came up with one you all might like.

    Characters from movies.

    Pick, at the most, 2 characters from the following genres
    -Comedy
    -Crime/Drama
    -Fantasy/Sci Fi
    -Horror
    -Action/Suspense

    You don't have to pick characters for all genres, but the max you can pick is 2 from each genre. Some movies might fall into other categories, but that's just a basic outline. You can use a movie in the action section if it fits in both action and sci-fi, etc. Also state which movie they're in so pics hunting will be easier for me.

    But with what looks like 4 showdowns already (Final Fantasy, Character fighter, comic book, music genre) do we need another one?

    Vote in the poll if you think I should do this, cause I'd rather not host a showdown with everyone going; WTH? Another one?!?!?!?!? JESUS!


    Here are my picks

    Comedy
    -Austin Powers
    -Frank the Tank (Old School)

    Crime/Drama
    -Jules (Pulp Fiction)
    -Mr. Pink (Reservoir Dogs)

    Fantasy/Sci Fi
    -Frank (Donnie Darko)
    -Gandalf the Grey (LOTR)

    Horror
    -Scream Killer (Scream)
    -Ashe (Evil Dead)

    Action/Suspense
    -Rocky
    -Neo (The Matrix)

    It's like I said, you can just use that as an out line. If a movie fits into more then one category (and most do) you can choose which genre you want to put it in. They're all going to be randomized and mixed together. But I will try to make it a bit fair for all characters.

    And it seems already characters are repeating. I'll make a list once I get a bit more replies.

    Also, PLEASE submit the character's name. Not the actor.

    I was going to say nay, but it seems like you put a lot of thought into this. Plus, I just can't say nay to Ghost's pretty face.

    John Candy's character is Del Griffith.
    Martin Lawrence plays the title role of Roscoe Jenkins aka Dr. RJ Stevens.
    Ofelia is spelled with an f.
    "Hand eye guy" from Pan's Labyrinth is known as the Pale Man.
    And I assume including Jesus in the fantasy category was Lentium's attempt at sharp humor. But as you're mixing them up anyway, it shouldn't really matter, should it?
