#65: Skeletor. From the film, Masters of the Universe, Frank Langella’s portrayal of Skeletor was a bright spot in this largely forgettable film that I loved as a kid. He-Man … Continue Reading I Am More Than Man, More Than Life… I Am A GOD!

Day 63: Mama Fratelli. Anne Ramsey’s character from The Goonies was always scary to me as a kid. I wish this movie held up for me, but all I can … Continue Reading The Only Thing We Serve Is Tongue
Day 62: Lo Pan. From Big Trouble in Little China. Sadly, this was not one of those movies that I was raised on, and actually could stand to watch again. … Continue Reading This One Has Fire As Well
Day 61: Roy Batty. There’s some disagreement over whether Rutger Hauer’s replicant character from Blade Runner is actually a villain, as his quest is at heart, one meant to right … Continue Reading Tears In Rain
Day 60: The Kurgan. Played by Clancy Brown (who was the voice of Two-Face in Batman: The Animated Series), The Kurgan from Highlander is just an animal. Terrifying from start to … Continue Reading There Can Be Only One
Day 59: Ivan Drago. Whatever he hits, he destroys. The technologically trained super-boxer from Rocky IV, Dolph Lundgren sure plays a mean Russian for a Swede.

Day 56: Francis Buxton. The villain from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure was little more than an adult brat with no thought for anyone but himself. As silly as this movie was, the … Continue Reading You’ll Be Sorry, Pee-Wee Herman!

Day 54: Biff Tannen (c. 1955). Man, Thomas F. Wilson played the hell out of Biff. He could’ve been a stock bully-type, but he managed to pull off humor, wily … Continue Reading What Are You Looking At, Butthead?
Day 53: Major Arnold Toht. Got to have a Nazi on any villains list, right? This dude was freaking creepy as hell, and that’s even before his face melted.
Day 52: Prince Humperdinck. Chris Sarandon’s turn as the loathsome Prince from The Princess Bride sticks with you. He’s one of those villains who is mostly unflappable. So when he … Continue Reading To The Pain!
Day 51: Hans Gruber. Played by the legendary Alan Rickman, Gruber might have been the best part of Die Hard, as Bruce Willis gets somehow retroactively worse with time. I … Continue Reading Now I Have a Machine Gun. Ho. Ho. Ho.
