Who are the 101 Greatest Movie Villains? One movie fan came up with their own list, but rather than merely naming them one by one, they put together a supercut of some memorable movie scenes celebrating their choices for the biggest and best baddies from movie history, from Scar to Nosferatu to Chuckie and The Joker. See if your favorites made the cut.
The video below (via Vulture) comes courtesy of YouTube user CriticaDaqueleFilme and clocks in at about six minutes. Using songs from X-Men: First Class to set the tone, some movies get a bit more focus than others, as the video starts with the tour of Max Cady's creepy tattoos in Cape Fear and then moves on to one of Jack Nicholson's Shining moments…
Some of my favorites that made the list are Pennywise (It), Kevin Spacey's John Doe (Se7en), General Zod (Superman II), O-Ren Ishii (Kill Bill Vol. 1), Elle Driver (Kill Bill Vol. 2), Patrick Bateman (American Psycho) and Ed Rooney (Ferris Bueller's Day Off). I also loved that Gollum and Darth Vader were saved for last, and that Palpatine made it in there. A good way to close out the list strong.
Whether or not all of your picks made the list, the video's a fun way to spend six minutes, if only to try to list off all of the movies featured.
Sound off in the comment section with who you think is the greatest movie villain!
