Although this blogathon is already killing me - literally - I continue it with a celebration of the coolest bad guys in film history. Or at least the part of film history I'm acquainted with.
Once you've seen enough movies, you'll know that villains or at least grey-ish characters can easily steal the scene from an all-through good guy. While the anti-hero might be my all time favourite kind of character, the villain is just one step behind.
Some of the characters I chose here are not actual villains in the truest sense of the word, but they are all close enough to be mentioned here - so enjoy their cruelty and arrogance in the following list!
