Let’s start Monday off with a little reader participation. I want to see what you think are the best lines/monologues/taunts ever spoken by a fictional villain. Often, stories are known for their villains, sometimes more so than their protagonists. Just think about The Dark Knight, Star Wars or even Wacky Races. In fact, in a lot of comic-book movies nowadays, people care more about which villain will be showing up, rather than the hero’s story. And why not?
So, here are my top 3 most villainous quotes ever!
I’m not a comic book villain. Do you seriously think I would explain my master stroke to you if there were even the slightest possibility you could affect the outcome? I triggered it 35 minutes ago.
~ Ozymandius (Watchmen)
I ate his liver with fava beans and a nice chianti.
~ Hannibal Lecter
Stop kitchen scraps to orphans and lepers, no more merciful beheadings……..and cancel christmas!
~ Sheriff of Nottingham (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves)
