Spike TV may not be the default go-to for critical cinematic analysis, but if there is one thing the guy-tailored network knows, it's hicks and hillbillies. And that makes them perfectly qualified to hammer out a list of the Top 10 White Trash Heroes of Cinema, a list that admirably goes looking in the "the trailer parks for succor, refuge, and justice."

It's actually a pretty fun list with some great picks on it. I'm particularly fond of Russel Casse from Independence Day, Valentine and Earl from Tremors, and H.I. McDunnough from Raising Arizona, but it's Luke Skywalker at number one that puts a big 'ole smile on my face. And it's hard to argue with Spike's rationale:

- He lives on a patch of dirt in the middle of nowhere.
- He has lots of beat-up vehicles in his front yard.
- He's a greasemonkey.
- He likes to make out with his sister.
- He lives with his aunt and uncle 'cause his dad killed his mom.
