Best Villains of 2011

December 29, 2011

Hello all. It wouldn’t be a Movies, Films and Flix list without some bad guys involved. This year featured a cornucopia of villains who transcended villainy and became very memorable. Men, women and animals comprise this list of über mean people who caused the heroes a plethora of pain.

1. Rachel McAdams- Midnight in Paris 

Rachel’s character is easily the best villain of 2011. Whether she is giving Owen Wilson mini panic attacks or insulting his intentions of becoming a novelist. She is a pure ball of evil.  What is the worse thing? Her name is Inez. Nothing good can come out of people named Inez…


2. Bryce Dallas Howard- 50/50 and The Help

Howard is going to be typecast for life. Her characters in the films are racist, angry and promiscuous. There is nothing redeemable about them other than making you like the other actors more. Add in her character from Hereafter and you have a trilogy of punks. Congrats Dallas! You annoyed a lot of people…..In a good way.


3. Mark Strong – The Guard

Literate, narcissistic and murderous. The guy is a perfect foil to Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle. His argument about  psychopaths vs. sociopaths were epic. I think he was both.


4. Wolf Boss-Danny McBride – Kung Fu Panda 2

If the peacock was the CEO of Evil Corp, the wolf was the foreman. The wolf did more than the evil peacock. He hit Po in the face with a hammer, escaped the Furious Five in a buggy and described the panda by saying he has a “plush cuddly super soft face.” He is a solid villain because he is more relatable than the pure evil punks.


5. Tom Hiddleston – Thor

Smart, devious and…more smart. The guy almost takes over Asgard and will give The Avengers a run for their money. Loki is the most three-dimensional villain of the year. Hiddleston gave him the perfect amount of bravado and insecurity.


6. Albert Brooks – Drive

The ultra-violence this guy is capable of  is extraordinary. He aims to hurt people before he kills them. He reminds me of a guy that would say “kill him…then kill him again.”


7. The red demon guy – Insidious

I normally don’t get freaked out by horror movie villains but this guy had me covering my eyes. The dude was a total evil punk who wanted to take over a human body and cause chaos. They don’t make evil people like they used to. Great makeup!


8. Goro Inagaki – 13 Assassins

I’m going to quote the great Roger Ebert: “13 Assassins has what many action pictures need, a villain who transcends evil and ascends to a realm of barbaric madness.”

I agree with Ebert. The dude is the definition of a badass evil monster.


9. Colin Farrell – Fright Night

I’m quoting my girlfriend “Yeah, I’m bad. What up?” Farrell is the most casual evil vampire ever. The dude rocked. You could tell he loved playing the role.


10. Choi Min-Sik- I Saw The Devil

Choi is crazy good in this film. This movie dives headlong into insanity with Choi leading the way. His performance is one of the bravest things I’ve seen in years. He is evil, funny, scary and human.
