Movie Villains You Wouldn’t Mind Hanging Out With!
Let’s face it. Everyone loves movie villains.
They live in really cool underground lairs complete with armies of henchmen and swimming pools loaded with sharks. They have all these meticulously detailed plans for acquiring wealth or dominating the planet depending on whatever mood they’re in on that particular day.
And most important; they are cool. The best villains can keep it together and not go all spazzy when the good guys are closing in and it looks like they won’t be ruling the world.
We at DVD Critics Corner love movie villains, and we love hanging out. So here is a list of some cinematic baddie we wouldn’t mind kicking it with for a day, week, or long holiday weekend. Or at least until the Avengers bust in and ruin the fun.
Occupation: Sentient Robot/Meglomaniac
As Seen In: The Avengers Age of Ultron (2015)
Why so cool: Okay, Ultron isn’t too crazy about us human beings, but he’s got the qualities we look for in a guy to hang out with. He’s witty, sarcastic, intellectual, and since he controls the internet he could score you a deal on a hotel or shut down the power where your ex girlfriend now lives.
Best Party Trick: Since Ultron is voiced by James Spader, he’s full of great stories about working with Molly RIngwald!
Occupation: Freelance Terrorist, Exceptional Thief
As Seen In: Die Hard (1988)
Why so cool: Hans appreciates the finer things in life, like money, fancy clothes, money, explosions, and money. I can picture Hans hosting lavish dinner parties with his terrorist pals, where they discuss art, politics, and pesky wise cracking cops who ruin the most perfect of plans!
Best Party Trick: His killer impression of Bill Clay. Spot on.
Occupation: Henchman, Assassin
As Seen In: The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979)
Why so cool: It’s Friday night. You’re siting at the local Applebee’s checking out the Happy Hour action, when you spot a bevy of beauties splitting a plate of pot stickers. What’s your in? You introduce the ladies to your towering pal Jaws who bites a barstool in half and orders a double platter of Double Crunch wings for the group! Best night ever!
Best Party Trick: Pretending to get beaten up by an elderly James Bond in 2 movies!
Occupation: Ruler of the Universe, Emperor of the Galaxy
As Seen In: Flash Gordon (1980)
Why so cool: What makes Ming so Hellacool? Is it his wicked facial hair? No. His complete change of wardrobe for every scene he’s in the movie? Nope. His super hot daughter Princess Aura? Maybe. I mean NO! It’s gotta be the weather machine. Who wouldn’t want to hang with a guy that can freeze the Great Lakes and burn to ashes the city where your ex-girlfriend is now living. Dude. Let it go. She’s not coming back.
Best Party Trick: Using his magic ring to make your Aunt Sally twerk like a busload of Miley Cyruses!
Occupation: Wicked Witch of the West
As Seen In: The Wizard of Oz (1939)
Why so cool? Two words: FLYING FREAKING MONKEYS.
Best Party Trick: Uh, FLYING FREAKING MONKEYS!
