Featured Video

Everyone has a thing for the protagonists or the supporting characters. However, only a few characters leave an impact on the viewers in the minimal screen time that they have. Here are some such movie characters who have our hearts for their significant contribution to some of our favorite movies.


THE INCREDIBLES: Honey Best, who was Frozone’s wife, has almost no screen time, and yet she is one of the most loved characters in the movie.

THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS: Hannibal Lecter’s disturbing personality and crime history made him highly catchy. The cannibalistic psychopath was the keeper of some precious information which he shared with the FBI. With total screentime of sixteen minutes, he changed the course of the movie.


THE STAR WARS: Boba Fett, a bounty hunter, barely had any screen time initially. Although with the bit of time he did have, he left behind a legacy on which we have built an entire series of comics and tv shows.

GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS: Who remembers Blake? Yes! The character was in the movie for seven whole minutes, and his speech completely took over the entire scene.


ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE: We cannot forget Keanu Reeves’s cameo. His iconic entrance and perfect timing made the entire scene much more hilarious.

EDWARD SCISSORHANDS: The one who created the protagonist and took care of it, The Inventor, was a very catchy old-man character who died quickly, paving the way for a beautiful story ahead.


SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE: To describe the character of Elizabeth 1 is a futile effort. However, the fact that the actor Dame Judi was awarded an oscar is enough to reflect the kind of impact she left on the viewers within her eight minutes worth of performance.

BEETLEJUICE: Betelgeuse was an unsettling ghost character who was extremely rude and unpleasant. However, his very little time on-screen dictated the tile of the whole movie.


ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES: King Richard had a small but significant role in this movie. His support for Robin affected how people saw him.

DOUBT: Mrs. Miller having around seven minutes of time on-screen, left the audience in thought. In addition, her brilliant acting contributed significantly to the movie.
