What a thread
It's really hard to think of my favourite
5, but here goes:
1) Frank Booth - Blue Velvet (Dennis Hopper)
The ultimate villain. If you've seen him you'll know, realistic AND evil, thats the scary thing, you know theres one in every city. And boy
does Hopper do a god job.
2) Tony Montana - Scarface (Al Pacino)
Suave, mad and completely extreme. An excellent character, what can you say. Was a big inspiration for Hip Hop, believe it or not (do a
3) Bricktop - Snatch (Alan Ford)
A great English gangster movie, and Bricktop is one evil son of a bitch. His teeth are yellow, he wears big square specs, he's old, short,
and he's got one hell of a violent temper. Tends to deal with people he doesn't like using dogs and pigs (he has a fascination with the way pigs can
eat people so fast). You have to see him to know how bad/cool he really is.
4) The Joker - Batman (Jack Nicholson)
Not realistic, but an all time classic never the less. I like my baddies to be suave, and he is. Twisted, and that smile is creepy even to
this day. And the dancing....and the balloons. You gotta love the Joker
5) Jules & Vincent - Pulp Fiction (Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson)
They were laready mentioned so I didn't want t put them, but how couldn't I? They are fantastic, throughout the film they are suave
(again). Everything that comes out of their mouths is interesting, and you find yourself liking them even though they are supposed to be "bad". One
of the most perfect partneships ever pulled of on Film, and I think a lot of the credit should go to, aside from the actorse themselves, Tarrantino.
For a villain to be real scary, and good, he has to be believable, he has to be realistic in a sense. If you think you could bump inot someone like
that, it makes it all the more shocking and evil. Thats the difference between Hellraiser and Frank Booth, in my opinion of course.
