    Anyone in 'A Birth of a Nation' is an obvious choice for me.

    For me it would have to be;
    Nicki from The Bling Ring: I know the film hasn't been released here in the UK, but I caught an early preview screening of it when I was in the States. Quite frankly she is the most despicable character in recent movie history. She is offensive towards teenagers and women. Like Carrie Bradshaw she is airheaded and quite frankly makes you want to scream for world revolution. Sofia Coppola claims that her film is a satire on modern youth. I actually found the film to be a celebration of it.

    Speaking of which my most annoying character just for the sake of it is;

    Mary Corleone from The Godfather Part 3 - One of the most infuriating, annoying and bland characters in movie history. And she is played by *drum roll* Sofia Coppola

    Because Dr. K loves to claim that this is far superior to the original Star Wars trilogy, I'm gonna go for the entire cast in every one of the fairly, justifiably maligned Twilight movies. To call these characters wooden and two-dimensional would be an understatement. They might as well all be vampires. None of them eat anything, they're all pasty white-skinned, and they all speak in the same bogus, semantically null modern vernacular.
