What was Fonzie Like Again?

Inspired by a column that only had a title, written by a columnist that no longer exists (how's that for mysterious?), I decided to write my own column about the coolest movie characters. So here they are, my top ten coolest characters in no particular order.

Ferris Bueller - Who didn't want to be Ferris? Coolest kid in school; popular with the sportos, motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies,
dickheads; dating a hot girl, gets away with everything.

Indiana Jones - Goes on amazing adventures, gets into jams but always stays calm, gets his fortune and glory and hot women.

Jules Winnfield - Most introspective, philosophical, and coolest hitman ever.

John McClane - Always ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time, but keeps his cool and finds a way to survive and comes up
with some good one-liners along the way.

The Dude - Pot smoking, bathrobe wearing, bowling aficionado Dude just shuffles through life abiding away.

Randle McMurphy - Fun-loving shyster just wants to have a good time, even in a mental institution.

James Bond - World-class spy, always comes out on top, always gets the girl (or girls).

Foxy Brown - Curvaceous Ms. Brown always
stays cool even when she's pretending to be a hooker.

Han Solo - Coolest pilot ever. Does what he wants, doesn't apologize for anything, especially his hairy best friend.

Peter Venkman - By far the coolest Ghostbuster, Venkman can pick up a lady, catch a ghost and piss off a government official all in an afternoon.

Honorable Mention - Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, Butch and Sundance, Otter, Aragorn

Good column - a trip down Memory Lane.

And let me be the first to say -

Just curious - But, for the sake of some gender balance here, can you think of at least one woman who was a cool movie character?

Maybe Ridley (Sigourney Weaver) in the Alien films...? Thelma & Louise...? Rebecca Pidgeon as the girlfriend in Heist...?

Tim Josephs
Born to write (literally much to the displeasure of his mother, he emerged with a pencil clutched in one tiny fist), Tim spends most of his days crafting epic monosyllabic poems, new comical titles to his favorite Beatles' songs (Hey, Dude), and angry letters to local businesses that have wronged him in some way. He's really an okay guy once you get to know him.
