4. Tyler Durden in Fight Club (1999)
Tyler Durden is the man that everyone wishes they could be; free from the bonds of society, decency and morality! He’s also hot as all hell and lives in a huge, gothic house on Paper Street. He pretty much becomes a model for God to the rest of Project Mayhem, too! Throughout the film, he makes some incredibly insightful comments on how we have become consumed by capitalism and how “the things you own end up owning you.” He very nearly succeeds in making you scream “Hell yeah!” while you through your plasma TV out the window and run into the wilderness naked. However, the world isn’t ready for that yet (throwing TVs or your nakedness) and Tyler goes about “enlightening” the world in a less-than-constructive manner. He destroys franchises. He intends to blow up the buildings of major credit card companies and cause total chaos. I get his sentiment and I think he is a great character, but there’s no denying that he’s a bit of an ass!
