Best Villains of the Last Decade
Some of them are gathering storms, while the others are just born to be bad.These are folks who complete our heroes. Without them, there ain’t no show of valour and there ain’t no corkscrewed souls. They are evil, and they bloody well know it. Here are the villains of the last decade who gave us long lasting jolts of monstrosity: Ralph Fiennes as Harry, In Bruges Oh, you just couldn’t keep her off the loop when it comes to listing down the sinners. In Monster, Theron had to shed – and shred – her image of a beguilingly seductive woman. She was baleful, ugly, sinner. I am not complaining. Quote: I wish there was a way that people can forgive you for something about this, you know. But they can't. They can't, man. So I gonna die, Sel... Hey Sel, I'll never forget you. Good bye, baby. Bye baby. Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort, Harry Potter
Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie, Django UnchainedLeonardo’s performance in Django Unchained, "In Tarantino’s anti-state of art masterpiece, you should be rooting for Django, but you might as well be rooting for the evil Calvin Candie. Most likely, you will be rooting against anyone who doesn’t let Candie have his way!" It's anyways hard not to root for Leonardo DiCaprio. Quotes: In the skull of old Ben unburdened by genes, these three dimples exist in the area of the skull most associated with servility. Now bright boy, I will admit you are pretty clever. But if I took this hammer here and I bashed it in your skull, you would have the same three dimples in the same place as old Ben. Daniel Day-Lewis as Bill 'The Butcher' Cutting, Gangs of New York Hans Landa! Reputed as ‘The Jew Hunter’, Waltz forcibly pins you with his denatured concoction and pounces on you with blissful lunacy. His Landa never needed to pull the trigger anyways. His interrogation (if that’s what you call his intimidating conversation with poor Jew-helping souls), was the highlight of the movie, and that’s saying something considering the movie is a nightmarish masterpiece. Quote: What a tremendously hostile world that a rat must endure. Yet not only does he survive, he thrives. Because our little foe has an instinct for survival and preservation second to none... And that Monsieur is what a Jew shares with a rat.
Heath Ledger as The Joker, Dark KnightJoker was an Agent of chaos, money could never give him a hard on! Christ, we still can’t get over those small flicks of his tongue, and the wiggles of the finger! Quote: “ If tomorrow I tell the press that like a gang banger, will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all, part of the plan. But when I say that one, little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds! Introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos, I’m an agent of chaos , and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair.” Honourable Mentions: Bane in Dark Knight Rises, Don Logan in 'Sexy Beast', Captain Vidal in 'Pan's Labyrinth, O-Ren Ishii in 'Kill Bill', Patrick Bateman in 'American Psycho' These big, brassy villains plot a plan of crackerjack design. Then the plot ripens. Then it explodes; leaving a mess of viciousness and a dim whiff of rot. It reminds us why we go to the movies.
