My favourite villains.

After having done the post on 'people in movies who irritate me,' I thought I might do a post on my favourite villains. So here goes

In my family we have various terms for bad guy we have the 'good bad bad guys' and the 'bad bad guys'. The good bad bad guys are the villains who are good at being a bad bad guy and the bad bad guys are the villains who have got no style, no background, don't have any good lines, plus, they need to be EVIL bad guys whereas some villains seem to be just boring.

I mean seriously this guy is really bad. He lets in serveral frost giants jsut to 'spoil brother's big day' and he is such a convincing villian seeming always to be on the peacemakers side but really he's the one who gives Thor the idea to attack the Frost Giants in the first place. he's the picture of innocence and I actually feel a little sad for him in Thor. In the Avengers, however he was a bad guy...a really honest to bad, bad guy. I didn't like him as much in that, probably because he looked a little crazy with the whole 'wild hair' thing. And I don't think he was a smart or cunning.

Count Olaf:
This guy has style. Definitely. He also had some cool lines and his disguises are very nicely done. His ambition is to be the guardian of the three Baudelaire children and there of gain their extreme wealth and fortune. I like him best as Stephano but not as captain Sham. He also is one fo those villians who is extremly bad but he's also your favorutie character from 'A series of Unfortunate Events.' "Do you have a hall pass?" Too funny.

Darth Sidious
A lot of people seem to think that Darth Sidious isn't the best Sith out of the whole Star Wars saga and everyone likes Darth Vader. The thing with Darth Vader is 1. He's a minion of Sidious, 2. He's got no cool lines and he doesn't have Sith lightning. He also breathes funny. 
If there is one Sith who is really villainous: Sidious. He promises to spare Count Dooku if Anakin happens to win in the duel between them but he doesn't, he bides his time for about what, fifteen years, to finally get Anakin to be his apprentice? Which proves he's happy to be patient unlike some other villains. Sure he is a scary bad guy how he fights especially against Mace Windu with the whole 'jumping in the air screaming and freakign everyone who's watching it out of their wits' (No, not really like that)  he looks pretty hideous and no he really doesn't have any good lines but he is EVIL and he plots and waits. He also gets all the Jedi killed. 
He's not a particular favourtie villain of mine but he does deserve to be distinguished as a bad guy who's a good bad guy though not in the same way as Count Olaf, for instance.

Vizzini from the Princess Bride is a funny bad guy. He hasn't got style, but he has great lines and a sense of humor. He's favourite word is inconceivable as everyone who has watched the movie knows. He is bossy, very small and very loud. 
This is one of the best scenes before he dies (yes, he dies)  
 "You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha... "
[Vizzini stops suddenly, his smile frozen on his face and falls to the ground dead
That scene is soooo funny. if you haven't seen the Princess Bride you probably should go and watch is as it is a very entertaining movie. Just if you watch the parts with Vizzini.

 Snidley Whiplash
 I have been watching Dudley Do-right for years and seriously Snidley is an awesome villian, cool lines, good style, and argues if he's wearing black. (he loves black too) He knows he's the bad guy and loves it. "I love to lurk, it's so me." One of my favourite scenes is with the Choo Choo train (pictured above) is coming and than he's just such a funny bad guy. Plus, Dudley is sooo gullible.....hunting vampires indeed. :P He has a funny voice too and a evil laugh. His dream ahs always been to be "The bad guy"! 

 Sheriff of Nottingham from the BBC Robin Hood.
Yes, he's not the classic Sheriff of Nottingham which makes him unique and he's a little smarter than average (just a tad). His favourite line is "A clue, no." He refers to the people in and around Nottingham as his 'people his dear people" although they are far from dear to him I can tell you. He can't bear to lose any money at all and as usual is always trying to catch Robin hood and his gang. He makes jokes which no one else find funny except himself and he is pretty evil. He lost his sense of humour at the start of the third season though but than, the third season isn't that great either. 

Barbossa is soooo funny. He's a much better villain than Davy Jones. He loves green apples and you can just see how irritated he is when he see's Jack eating the apple right in front of his nose whereas he can't taste it at all. It kind of makes me sad when Jack kills him at the end of the first movie because as he falls you see an apple roll onto the ground beside him.  He has some cool lines such as "Why, thankee Jack." (Jack) "Your Welcome." "Oh, no we named the monkey Jack." See what I mean oh and yes he loves his monkey and his hat. "I'll buy you a hat.....a really big one." (Jack Sparrow) He caused mutiny on the Black Pearl and Jack and him have this thing with "My ship."
You only see him at the end of the second but you do see that he's eating an apple. I remember going to see at the cinemas and seeing Barbossa at the end and being so excited because he was back. "I assure you our intentions are strictly honourable." swords are thrown up between the floorboards and Elizabeth and Barbossa grab them.
(Jack Sparrow) Good man. 'Weigh anchor all hands. Prepare to make sail. 
[takes out compass
(Barbossa) [pats the charts in his hands] Jack... Which way ya goin', Jack?"

He's clever, crafty and he has a great skill with the cutlass. He had great lines (examples above)  He wasn't great in the fourth movie though first, because he lost the Pearl, and secondly he has a peg leg which is sooo not Barbossa. 
He probably doesn't count as a villain in the third movie but he does in the first and though he's still a good guy, he's a pirate and is always looking out for his own interests. He has wonderful minions though i.e. Ragetti and Pintel

Hope you enjoyed this guys! :) I certainly did.

God Bless


  1. I adore Count Olaf and Snidely best! :]

  2. Hey Vellvin, I've only recently started following your blog.. anyway..

    I love the Princess Bride! It's such a good movie - and Vizzini is so funny.
    I like most of those villains you picked, though I haven't seen Dudley Do-Right or the BBC Robin Hood, so I can't comment on those!


  3. @Autumn yes Count Olaf and Snidley are great!
    @Hey Helena, thanks for the comment and the follow. :)
    Dudley Do-Right isn't a very well known movie though, it does star Brendan Fraser.
    BBC Robin Hood is good too, though if you are used to the old legends of Robin Hood and historical accurateness than you'll probably a bit bored or tired of it.

  4. Barbossa and the Sheriff rule!! Mwahahaha!!!! ;D
