From movies, books, plays, television shows etc.


I'll start:

Bella from Twilight: I think she has no personality and can't understand how so many young (and old) woman identify with her.

Lafayette and Tara from Trublood: After the first season, the writing for those characters turned to complete shit.

Draco Malfoy from the HP movies: He turned into the whiniest bitch when he hit puberty.

The entire Friends cast.

Horatio Caine from CSI Miami

Anything character ever played by Steven Segal

Any weak overly emotional female character that always needs to be rescued by the male lead.

Any character played by Will Smith when he is cast in a serious role like Seven Pounds and I am Legend and iRobot. He ruins serious movies.

I hate Jenny from Forrest Gump. She was never loyal and constantly made poor choices.

I liked I, Robot. Thought he was pretty good in it.

Needless to say, I agree with you on Bella.

The main character from Girl, Interrupted. I don't understand her viewpoints and every time she felt proud for standing up for whatever she did my stomach turned.

Scott Pilgrim. Pussy.

Jack from Lost. Despite his intentions, he made a lot of foolish decisions at the expense of many.

Any lead characters in teenage girl movies.

Deborah Morgan from Dexter. I don't particularly hate her, I just find her obnoxious and over emotional. Though I do hate LaGuerta. She's awfully selfish and deceptive.

Watson from the modern Sherlock Holmes. Though I think this is more attributable to poor acting and lame screen writing.

Peter Parker. For a badass super hero, he's pretty squeamish.

I don't mind Deb too much, but I feel like they need to choose between the tomboy, workaholic who swears like a sailor, and sensitive, overly emotional woman. They smashed the two together in her and it just doesn't work.

I really dislike LaGuerta as well. I hope they kill her off in the coming season. I can't figure out what purpose she serves.

EDIT:

I hate the character in zombie movies that always ruins it for everyone else. You know, when their husband or child gets bitten and they still try to save them while risking the lives others. Or when they've found a good hide out and the persons feeeeelings cause them to do something incredibly stupid.

Yeah Deb's character is really unclear. Especially considering she started out as a hooker..? And is now the police lieutenant?

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate her character I think she has generally reasonable values and concerns. But she's all over the place, and her emotional flamboyancy makes me irk. Perhaps it's the acting.

She started out as an undercover cop that posed as a hooker. I like the swearing, tomboy Deb, but I can do without the emotional shit. It just confuses the viewers. She strikes me as an STP or the TV version of one, but the emotions don't seem to fit at all.

BELLA! Omg, she's awful!

Honestly, I don't care for the character Annie (Kristen Wiig) in Bridesmaids. I feel she makes poor choices and she's obnoxiously full of self pity. However, I thought her character was hilarious, as was the entire movie :)

I have seen the 2 of the Twilights movies though. I love watching them just so I can laugh at how bad they are and how ridiculous a person would have to be to like them.

The part where she is in the woods and sad because she misses edward and those wolves are on the loose. It was a gag worthy moment. I don't see how hearts literally break over twilight.

I thoroughly enjoy the prospect of being a vampire as portrayed in the Twilight franchise. There's something romantic about it, and it's not related to Edward or Bella or any of that main story bs. Also, to live forever.

Yea, but sparkling in the sunlight? I thought the movie was corny, but when his ass started to sparkle I was DONE. All respect was lost.

I actually like other vampire portrayals. I like interview with a vampire. All of these modern vampire adaptations are ruining the original ones. There are certain things vampire should not be able to do, and walking in the light is one of them.

Arggghhh.... that makes me crazy.

The flip side of that is that I love movies where chicks kick ass. Like this:

Yea I like those movies too. Though, I feel like the kickass female leads are always portrayed as INTJs, INFJs or ISTPs.

I especially hate when they its a kickass INFJ because they are always just badass enough to be cool but never too much so that the male viewers don't see her as unfeminine thus less attractive.

I know in some Angelina Jolie movies like Wanted, Tomb raider and Mr and Mrs Smith so people didn't like the character because she seemed too "masculine" even though she looked hot as hell. I don't get it. Why is weak and emotional always synonymous with female?

I'd imagine and female ENTJ stomping you out with no remorse because if it got to the point of a slap down, you'd probably be very deserving of it.

Must you use female genitalia as an insult? It's quite sexist.



I really disliked Ronon Dex from Stargate SG1. He was always so angry and a time bomb.

Daisy Wick from Bones, she's a very weak person and super annoying.

Carlton "Lassie" Lassiter from Psych, he is overly aggressive for no reason, not diplomatic, and one of THE worst cop of all time. Not to mention that even though he fails at almost everything he is still very rude and thinks he's "the God" of all cops.

No one will know who this is but I don't care. Grunshlick from farscape. Most disgusting person of all farscape characters. And shady.
