Aaaand, I've got a little giveaway of my own going just to thank you for making my place one of your stops.
Here was the directive:
“What makes a hero in movies and books wonderful to the point your toes curl?”
To answer this question, I took a look at my movie crush history. There are many more men on this list, of course, but these are the ones about whom I was most obsessive:
The very first movie crush I can remember is Christopher Plummer as Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music
Fast forward a couple decades, and Ray Liotta got my engines roaring as Henry Hill in Goodfellas
Along came Tommy Lee Jones as Samuel Gerard in The Fugitive
Followed by Alan Rickman as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies.
And then Jack Davenport as Commodore Norrington in Pirates of the Caribbean
I don't have a movie crush at the moment, but my TV crush du jour is Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester in Supernatural.
So what's the common denominator? If you followed any of the links above, you'll see that they lead to audio as well as visual, and that's because the voice is key. It's gotta be deep and it's gotta rumble. Grrrrrr. Judging by the captain, US marshall, professor, and naval officer on my list, I'd say it appears I have a little somethin' for authority figures too. Who knew?
So how about you, what is it about a movie/book hero/heroine that makes you grrrrrr?
