I hope the coach of the Yankees on the first "Bad News Bears" is on the list of villains.

And I hope Daniel Larusso (Karate Kid I, II, III) was considered a top-50 hero.

The concept of Atticus Finch being number one is completely mind-boggling. "Mockingbird" was a good movie, but I think it's pretty clear that AFI's political agenda shone through again. Same thing for Ellen Ripley(Alien) to come in higher that George Bailey, which is damn near criminal.

All in all, the top 50 wasn't too bad, but it did tend towards AFI's typical mantra of interfusing things that people have seen with snooty stuff most folks have not.

Unless by "snooty" you mean "old," I'm baffled -- none of these movies are obscure.

It seems like a pretty fair list, I mean, you always miss some. If they are going to animated stuff, I would think that Scar from the Lion King is a good villian, as would be Richard Gere's character in Internal Affairs, Mr. Joshua (Gary Busey), and Mr. Blonde (Resevoir Dogs). "Man" in Bambi is a little weak, IMO. I agree with William Wallace/Braveheart, and could see Maximus (Gladiator), Max (Gibson/Road Warrior), Dunbar (Costner/Dances w/Wolves), and Navin Johnson as great heroes.

I suppose that I meant "old" insofar as some of the movies were old movies that I have never heard of. Not towards the top of the list, but Shane and Silkwood come to mind.

Hannibal Lecter coming in at #1 was a pretty odd choice. I guess they edited Hannibal's little montage to show him looking like the most evil person on the planet, but if you've seen any of the Hannibal movies, you'll remember that Hannibal was much more humanized than most of the villains I'd classify as "pure evil" on the list.

In Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal helped Clarice find the killer she was looking for despite the fact that he was going to escape anyway. That shows at least some redeeming quality. Let's also not forget that the head prison guard would routinely beat Hannibal and was a total dick. In other words, Hannibal was also sort of a hero, despite being "pure evil."

So, Obi-Wan is a bigger hero than Luke Skywalker? Luke Skywalker is a pretty big omission, especially considering that they included Darth Vader at #3, which means they actually watched Star Wars and recognized that Luke does indeed exist. It's not like they actually forgot about him.

Including Anakin Skywalker footage during the Vader montage was pretty crappy. That's probably what knocked Vader down two spots from being #1.

Other than that, it wasn't a bad list. Both Batman (Michael Keaton) and The Joker should have been ranked higher and John McClane should have been on there, and the entire order should have been completely rearranged, but hey, not bad.

To me the scariest villains are the embodiments of pure evil that walk amongst us in an unobtrusive manner every single day. Therefore I see 2 major omissions that are personally for me MUCH more evil than some space alien or future robot.

Chad - In The Company Of Men: The most evil character in the single most spiteful movie ever made. The casual ability to backstab, lie, and destroy people's lives while never changing his socially acceptable face and feeling not one drop of remorse is chilling because you know that there are people like that...possibly sitting right next to you at work.

Bill Lumbergh - Office Space: "I'm going to need you to come into work on Saturday....and oh yeah, I'm going to need you on Sunday too. Thanks a bunch Peter." The Terminator isn't evil. The Martians aren't evil. THAT is evil.

Shane is a good movie, man, leave it alone. I take issue with some of the people being on the list that were not really villians or heroes. First, T.E. Lawrence, great leader? yes, hero? no. I consider him up there with Patton as more obsessed and crossed the edge way too many times to be considered a hero. It was a great acting part, but nothing really heroic. Same goes for Taxi Driver, at the end, he is the hero and if you watch the movie, he is a hero. If you wanted DeNiro on the list as a villian, go with Godfather II or Goodfellas or Casino.

Second, I agree with Sklokazoid, Hannibal is really the villian as he is the hero in the story. Granted, I thought Red Dragon did more for him in the villian department than Silence. I think he is a great villian, but not the greatest villian of all time, its Darth Vader, but I can see the prequels would hurt his spot. Fucking Hyaden Christianson. As for Obi-wan, this is where the prequels helped. Ewan as Obi-wan is one of the best parts of the prequels thanks to Episode II in particular. Plus, Luke is a whinner.

Third, Too many useless chicks. Ok, Thelma and Louise?, Clarice?, Norma Rea? I don't think so. I will say that Ripley, th Queen from Snow White and the others are fine. But these are wash outs. Clarice is a great character, but not in the top ten or twenty. I think those were more political manuevers than real choices. If you would have taken a few of those out, you could have easily put in Joh Mclane, Christ this guy was the definative hero in the last quarter century, Morphus from Matrix, Aragon from LOTR, Spock from Star Trek II and of course, Peter Veinkman from Ghostbusters. As for villians, Khan should be on the list as would Sauramon, Agent Smith from the Matrix and of course, Boba Fett.

A Fan- I will have my list up shotrly from the 400 nominees from AFI's website.

Wasn't knocking it; just had never seen(nor heard) of it before last night, which was kinda unusual to see it in the top 50 of anything.

I thought the best part of the special was the total lack of overrated "Matrix" crap.

EDIT: And aren't the LOTR rings considered British? I'm not sure, but that would explain their unusual ommission.

Well, LOTR is A) too recent (not that it stopped Gladiator) and B) incomplete because ROTK hasn't come out yet.

The characters in LOTR just aren't all that fully fleshed out yet as I suspect they will be in Return of the King (haven't read the books).

The Matrix is pretty iffy. There are definitely 50 greater heroes in movie history than Neo, based on just the 1999 movie alone, and even including the sequel. Agent Smith was a pretty effective villain, but since the Matrix is so recent, I can see why they left it out.

Many of these things take time to tell. I'm personally not as overwhelmed at LOTR as I was at Star Wars, and I think that, given a few years, it could age well into being a classic. But, I hardly see it as one right now, especially when the entire story hasn't been told.

I mean, who knew when it came out that Atticus Finch was the greatest movie hero of all time?

Maximus deserves a much higher ranking as a Hero.

Other Heroes: Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken and Bruce Cambell from Army of Darkness.

For villains, add on Joquin Phoenix from Gladiator.

For DeNiro as a villain, I’ll go with Heat.
For Pacino, I’ll go with Carlitto’s Way.

The coyote goes... I don't hold many qualms with the list due to the fact that I don't really take the AFI all that seriously. Jesus, in their top comedies of all time, they had the odacity to omit Animal House from the top 10, which is silly IMO.

For starters, John Wayne was given a token spot on the list due to his namesake, not for his movies. Steve McQueen (The Great Escape, Papillon) was ignored, which is strange, as were Bert Reynolds (Smokey and the Bandit), Bruce Willis (Die Hard, Pulp Fiction, Armageddon, pick one), Cary Elwes (Westley, The Princess Bride), and Tobey McGuire (Spider-Man, although it's acceptable since they chose Batman and Superman). Luke Skywalker should have been on the list in leu of Han Solo.

Villains ignored were The Storm (A Perfect Storm, man vs. weather is a good plot), The Fertelli Family (The Goonies), Emil Sitka (countless Three Stooges shorts, but the AFI disdains from the Stooges...), The T-1000, Dean Vernon Wormer (Animal House), Zuul (Ghostbusters), and Elmer Fudd.

Mentioning the Martians was an act of brilliance on somebody's behalf. On my list, Atticus Finch would have maxed out at number 5, George Bailey at 1. Hannibal Lector at 2, Ralph Fiennes from Schindler's List at 1, of only because he felt justified.

I actually sat through the whole three hours and did indeed question some choices.

- The Wicked Witch Of The West should've been higher. There's an old school heel if there ever was one.

- Agreed on the John McClane part. If the evil german guy made the list, McClane should've been on there.

- If Disney movies were included, there were FAR better choices than "Man" in terms of heels: Scar (Lion King), Jafar (Aladdin), Monstro (Pinoccho), Stromboli (Pinocchio), Prince John (Robin Hood), Gaston (Beauty & The Beast), Shere Kahn (Jungle Book), Ursula (Little Mermaid), Captain Hook, etc.

- Other ommissions: Asterix & Obelix (faces), Jules Caesar (heel), Sarah Connor (T2), Belle (Beauty & The Beast).

- I don't agree with Alex De Large's place as a villain. Yes, he starts out evil but those who'se seen the movie know how he ends up. That one's iffy in my book. If there should have been a villain from that movie, it was definitely the guard captain from the prison.

That's all I can contribute for now.

    "Man" in Bambi is a little weak


I totally disagree. Who can argue with the motherfuckers that killed Bambi's mom? Man, Cruella de Vil and the Queen are just the right number of cartoon villains (though maybe also Judge Doom from Roger Rabbit)

Another notable hero omission: Marty McFly.
More notable villains: Edward Norton in Primal Fear, Bill Murray in Kingpin.

The Disney Prince John would not have made any sort of list, sorry to say. He was more idiotic than evil. Although you would be on the money with almost every other character listed there. Personal biases would make me want James Woods' Hades at number one of course, however, so to each their own.

As much as I love the BTTF series, Marty isn't really a hero until he goes back to rescue Doc in Part III. He spends the first two films saving his own ass and/or correcting his own mistakes. Yes, he does heroic things like getting his parents together and correcting the timeline, but he's the one that f'd things up in the first place.

Speaking of BTTF, have the corrected DVDs come out yet?

Atticus' choice at #1 clears the way for the making of To Kill a Mockingbird 2: Killing Time, where Atticus and Boo Radley team up to battle the Klan. The remake will star the Rock as Atticus and Robert Patrick as Boo Radley. Britney Spears is the all-grown up version of Scout.
