Some have even become supporters of Palpatine, which is ironic and not ironic at all. His popularity in fandoms may be the reason for his reappearance in the rise of skywalker.

by Tommy Verseau Room Always destined to be a great meme. The film is notoriously chaotic, with almost no plot. As the viewer watches, the dialogue becomes disjointed, yet enthralling. To quote, its protagonist, Johnny, who is depicted as squinting in the poster seen above, has always been a favorite.
Johnny, an American banker, is said to be a pretty normal and nice guy. However, Wiseau’s performance of Johnny is filled with weird grammar and breaks, as well as really funny accents.

The Incredibles (The Incredibles)
by pixar amazing people is a brilliant deconstruction of a superhero story while remaining a great family movie. amazing people An instant classic, a sequel a decade later could never match.

The image above is a more realistic and silhouetted image of Mister Incredible. Internet users love to use this type of meme to compare concepts or as a response to certain events.
Willy Wonka (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)
Using Willy Wonka in the meme is actually pretty old. The meme template puts Gene Wilder in his hand, as pictured, and teases someone in a condescending way. This wouldn’t be possible without the characters’ latent lowering energy. Anyone who has seen the film will agree that Gene Wilder’s performance as the good-natured candy seller is strangely evil.
It’s part of his conflicting personality that makes him so attractive. This complacent energy is common in the actor’s portrayal because he is often complacent.

Most notably, this character has the human love he stole from her boyfriend. Thinking about some weird moments in movies online has become all too common.
Walter Sobchak (The Big Lebowski)
Big Lebowski is a fun and experimental film with characters of many different archetypes. John Goodman’s Walter is perhaps the loudest and boldest of them all. He’s always faked socially and threatened violence. His frenetic attitude makes him the ideal target for the internet’s tough guys.
Both satirical and non-sarcastic memes about Walter loading a gun exist. These memes are often intended to convey the creator’s strong feelings or to mock another group’s strong feelings. An element of parody might be better suited to Walter’s incompetence.
Lightning McQueen (Car)
When it was first released, car This is Pixar’s most underrated film. That’s no longer the case, and it’s not the bomb, but that attitude that has been with the team for a long time. It became the studio’s most popular toy line, further fueling the audience backlash against the brand. On top of that, the main character Lightning McQueen is voiced by Owen Wilson, who is memorable in his own right.
The combination suits his racing nature, making Lightning quickly one of Pixar’s most satirical characters. He has a goofy catchphrase and quirky designs that can easily be put side by side in memes. Character merchandise, such as the Crocs shoes seen above, have been satirized online and have spawned sarcastic and derogatory online cartoons.

The lovable idiot played by Patrick Warburton is purely a sidekick to the main villain, but he’s popular enough to have his own spin-off. The character has gone through countless memes.

But the goofy and weird nature of the character has earned him a number of memes. His squirrel language, his confusion over Cuzco’s poison, his “okay” words, the list goes on and on. While the movie in particular is meme-worthy in its own right, Kronk certainly stands out and has become the “himbo” of internet culture and the poster child for memes that represent good men. but dumb.
