50. Go-Go Yubari
Kill Bill Vol. 1
You call that begging? You can beg better than that.
Go-Go is a straight up killer. Maybe only sixteen, but her instincts and skills are second to none. When she finally squares off with the Bride, it’s one point we finally begin to worry about whether or not our heroine is going to make it because Go-Go is that formiddable.
49. Sheriff of Nottingham
Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves
I’ll cut his heart out with a spoon!
Alan Rickman played the villain, The Sheriff Of Nottingham, with a maniacal wickedness that played both as evil and even the occasional humorous.
48. The Black Knight
Monty Python And The Holy Grail
“It’s only a mere flesh wound.”
Not every villain has to be frightening to be a great villain, and The Black Knight is my most keen example of such. As he loses limb after limb and continues to taunt his assailiants it is absolutely hilarious, hence being #49 on this list.
47. The Headless Horseman
Chris Walken is the perfect part for this role and he is part of the reason the horsemens becomes so terrifying. Yes, he is headless, but there are flashbacks that we get to see Walkens crazy eyes and frighening teeth. The character is evil and malevolent, a vicious killer with no remorse.
Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom
You are in a position unsuitable to give orders.
There are children here somewhere. I can smell them.
Well, what am I supposed to do? You won’t answer my calls, you change your number. I mean, I’m not gonna be ignored, Dan!
Your hand is staining my window.
“Greed captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.”
From the man who says, “Greed Is Good” Gordon Gekko is one of the nastiest character’s to ever grace the screen. Michael Douglas in his absolute prime encapsulates what it is to personify cruelty and live for the glory of success, money, and power. Gekko, the smooth talking slick as rain snake in the grass, is a painful representative of how money can corrupt the soul, the fixation on material things, and having them identify who you are as human being. At the end when Bud says he realized he could only be Bud, and that there was only one Gordon Gekko, he was right. This ruthless scoundrel is about as nasty and heartless as they come, but it’s a fun ride watching him operate.
