    Honestly, these are all great characters. I like something about each of them... but, like I said - I just had to go with Ian. I still quote him at least once a week.

    The Chaos Theory was a nice bit, but I'd heard of it years before I saw Jurassic Park. I quote Dorothy Gail more than I quote Ian, but that's me. Lyons and Tigers and Bairs, oh what a strange group of people I used to work with.

    Never said she was, I just said I quote her more than Ian. Did I mention I don't work with those people anymore? So I don't say that phrase anymore do I?

    I am so torn.

    Intellectually I know that I should go with Elwood P. Dowd, but Ash is iconic in horror and definitely one of the BHMCOAT. And Ian Malcolm* is also a fabulous character, Jeff Goldblum at his best. I honestly don't know what to do.


    *Incidentally, yes, I knew about chaos theory long before JP, too. We discussed it in our interdisciplinary HP courses. Plus, my best friend's PhD is in chaos theory. But Jeff G. rocked the role.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    remains less than impressed with Ian Malcolm.

    Give me Lord Toranaga, give me Lois Lane as played by Margo Kidder, give me any Buddy Hackett role, but I saw truly and honestly nothing in JG's performance that has remained with me. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with those who did (they may be nuttier than squirrel shit, but it ain't because of them liking the character); I'm just saying I didn't.

    I'm not real surprised that Ash is leading... it's just bemusing that Phil is so close!
