Depends on the villian. But yes, I like clever ones.

For example Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton in Bandits.

Jack Palance in “Shane”. Sexy man, he was.
Jack Palance in “Batman”.

The original Mighty Morphing Power Rangers killed a monster that was just protecting its babies. Sorry for not having a link. Maybe some one knows what I am referring to? It was as a Megazord in the first year or so of the first or second season.

Hey, I kinda dig @josie if only for being “that guy” who went there…woot…way to go man!

Anakin Skywalker when his mother Shmi died. Dam the Sandpeople and slave owner Watto.

Well, that is kind of intentional for those particular villains.

Jackie Treehorn in ‘the Big Lebowski’.

I have an affinity for a well crafted villain. And that is one more reason Trump is so disgusting. The man is a disgrace to the profession.

George Sanders in Warner Brother’s 1952 version of “Ivanhoe.”

Ooo err, a soft spot for certain villains, do you mean like Steven Fry in the movie Wilde?

stanleybmanly's avatar

@kritiper I heartily agree. “Dog of a Saxon prepare for the death thou hast brought upon thee!” When Sanders as Boil-Guilbert snatches up the women to use as shields in their escape from the castle it’s over the top villainy from there on out!!

A well written “bad guy,” can definitely make a book/movie better.

I LOVE the series “Vikings.” There seem to be no “good guys.”

IRL, there are often no pure “good guys.”

Of course I do. Usually life has messed them up and they’ve ‘got hard’ to survive and thrive. Like Freeze, Venom, etc..

I liked Hannibal, too. :) Much swag.

@KNOWITALL You got that right pet ;-}

Negan is my favorite villain. Not so much lately but in the past.

mazingerz88's avatar

I have a hard spot for Sharon Stone’s villain in Basic Instinct.
Next to her, all those female vampires in Hammer horror films.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Good call @Castle . Negan, is a very cool bad guy. You want to hate him, but it’s hard to. I hated the Governor. Negan, is just more interesting, and witty.

Castle's avatar

@MrGrimm888 exactly man! Negan was a complete badass in his time and I certainly hope he will find that side again but this time for the good of the group. Well, to be honest I wouldn’t mind if things resorted back to the way it was with him being the bad guy. I love the show but it’s been on so long now that I’m ready for anything to happen.

And yes, the Governor sucked.
