I is for Inigo Montoya
I thought about using another quote, but I just couldn't. It had to be that one.
The banter between Inigo and the Man in Black whilst they sword fight is one of the best parts of the book and movie (though there are a lot of good parts). Inigo is such an honourable swordsman that his involvement with a scoundrel like Vizzini is funny. He also makes a great best friend for Fezzik.
He is supposedly the greatest swordsman of his generation, and the only living person to hold the title of "wizard" (the rank about "master")! I greatly enjoy when at the end of the movie he has succeeded in his quest to avenge his father and doesn't know what to do, the Man in Black tells him he should be the new "Dread Pirate Roberts."
Shout out to blogger buddy I: Iceberg Ink is a fun place for crackpot Doctor Who theories, movie and book reviews. I don't know the guys there personally, but their posts always entertain.
