The 10 Best Character Entrances of All-Time

If you’ve spent any time on YouTube at all, you know people are desperate for subscribers.  The last 10-30 seconds of almost any YouTube video are a needy cry for help from whatever channel you’re watching, but if you’re a movie fan, and you want consistently awesome and inventive lists, you need to subscribe to CineFix.  They turn out random Top….Whatever lists on a regular basis and they’ve come up with some great ones.  This particular one highlights the best character introductions; the first time you see a character onscreen and know they will dominate the film and fill your mind with catchphrases for years to come.  I liked this idea so much, I will not actually watch their video until after I publish this post because I made my own top 10 list below based off the same idea.  So if they copy my ideas, it’s certainly not my fault.
