View Full Version : Coolest. Villians. EVER.
09-10-2004, 10:18 PM
I apoligize in advance if there`s already a thread like this, but.....
Who are your favorite movie villians? Mine would be......
-Top Dollar (Michael Wincott) from "The Crow"
Look up "cool" in the dictionary and there`s a picture of this guy.......
-Clarence Boddiker (Kurtwood Smith) from "RoboCop"
Who would`ve thought the dad from "That 70`s Show" could play such a badass, manical villian?
-Bill (David Carradine) from "Kill Bill"
So suave......so smooth.....and yet so deadly! With a voice that`s ALMOST as cool as Wincott`s......

I think some of the coolest villains are the femme fatales of cinema.....manipulative, icy, seductive, and oh so deadly!
Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck) in DOUBLE INDEMNITY
Kathie Moffat (Jane Greer) in OUT OF THE PAST
Catherine Trammell (Sharon Stone) in BASIC INSTINCT
Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer) in BATMAN RETURNS
Matty Walker (Kathleen Turner) in BODY HEAT
Bridget Gregory (Linda Fiorentino) in THE LAST SEDUCTION

A tie for me between two manipulative smooth-talkers: Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) in THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and HAL-9000 (voice of Douglas Rain) in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
