I couldn't decide if this belongs in politics or here but I then decided that it would be much more appropriate here because it allows me to make fun of the overly pretentious film fans who voted for this "honor."

According to the spelling challenged at Yahoo! (story.news.yahoo.com), George W. Bush is this year's top "villian", beating out, among others, Doc Ock, Leatherface, and Elle Driver. I haven't been to a lot of movies this year and I still have to laugh that anyone would pick GWB over some of the other screen villains of this year.

I think it was more of a "hey, look, it's GWB" joke vote for most people. It's like when there's a survey, and there are 3 serious answers and one joke answer, the joke answer gets the most votes most of the time.

Meryl Streep in the Manchurian Candidate
The Plastics in Mean Girls
Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite
Tom Cruise in Collateral
Elijah Wood in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was a real dick.
Orlando Bloom in Troy.....he wasn't meant as the villain, but by god there wasn't a character in movies this year that I wanted to see killed more.
I'll leave a spot open for the killer in Saw, since I have high hopes for that one.

Doc Ock ended up being utterly awesome, but the winner by a landslide has to be Bill in Kill Bill, Volume II

Big Bad. SAW was screened at the AUSTIN FILM FESTIVAL a while back, and its terrible. The bad guy definitely doesn't deserve a top movie villain of the year spot.

My top movie villains for 2004:

Brian Cox in The Bourne Supremacy
Doctor Octopus in Spider-man 2
Kim Jong Il in Team America: World Police
Kroenen in Hellboy

Ewww, Kroenen in Hellboy was like the weak link of the movie. There was nothing to him. Obvioucly Ock should win this thing hands down, but also worth considering are:

McDonalds (Supersize Me)
Tom Cruise as Vincent (Collateral)
Darryl Hannah as Elle Driver (Kill Bill: Volume II)
Tom Hanks as Prof. G.H. Dorr (The Ladykillers)




Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five point palm exploding heart technique.

Meryl Streep was totally the creepiest. I don't know if I can consider Uncle Rico a villain. WHITE GOODMAN~~~~. What about, err, zombies?

Richard Roxburgh's portrayal of Dracula in "Van Helsing" was the 2nd best villain of any character this year. Everybody else who played a villain this year is tied for first.

I'm Renegade Raine and I approve this message:


In my eyes, what makes a good villian is not neccesarily what they do, but what motivates them and their actions. I felt I completely understood Bill's motive, and it made complete sense about what he did to enforce his motive. Hell, I'd even say that his motive made more sense than the protagonist's motive (although that one was good too).

So yep, I choose Bill from Kill Bill Volume Two.

Honorable Mentions:

2. Doctor Octopus (Spider Man 2)
3. Elle Driver (Kill Bill 2)
4. Kim Jong II (Team America: World Police)

I'd put a fifth one to round it into a top five list, but I can't think of anyone worthy to be number five...

It was good as a sort of mini-movie, but I'm not sure how it'll work as a series. It feels like they want to build around Raylon vs Boyd, but they sort of ended that in the first episode.
