    here is some good villians
    Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music
    Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman
    and the most egregious of villians
    Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farms.

    It gives me the shivers just thinking about it

    Here's a couple more:

    Dante's boss in "Clerks". We never see him, yet he makes Dante's life a nightmare.

    Keyser Soze in "The Usual Suspects", even though the literal translation of his name is something like "King Talks Too Much."

    Capt. Dudley Smith in "L.A. Confidential"

    And any cheerleader from "Bring It On." A whole movie about cheerleaders is just flat-out evil

    It's so hard to argue with such a list, so all I'll venture to try is add to it.

    Val's worst TV villain additions:

    C.G.B. Spender, a.k.a. Cigarette Smoking Man - The X Files

    Alex Krejcek - The X-Files

    and everyone responsible for ruining the X Files' final season!

    Val's worst movie villain additions:

    The entire cast of Election Day, and pretty much everyone in Being John Malkovich, with the exception perhaps of John Malkovich and the little girl.

    Val, how can you say that the most beautiful John Cusack is a villian? Yes, he was in Being John Malcovich, but still...


    Here are a few from me:
    Hannibal Lecter
    The Sherrif of Nottingham - Robin Hood
    The Smoking man - X-files
    Darth Vader
    Jack Nicholson in a bunch of his movies
    Marlin Brando- Apocalypse Now Redux

    Before I mess anyone else's name up, that is it for now.

    All the "cool" people in "Ghost World"
    Brick Top - "Snatch"
    Rory Breaker - "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels"
    The raunchy chorus-girl owner in "Major League"

    That's all for now.
