Film and Television’s Best Villains

Although, in the context of this article, “villain” may be loosely applied to some of the characters on this list, that doesn’t detract from the fact that their actions prove to be more than just a thorn in the side of their heroic counterparts.

From wanton destruction to crushing the spirit of anyone and everyone to fall prey to their wickedness, these are the people we love to hate (or, at least, I do).

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Greatest Moments

Arnold Schwarzenegger is indisputably one of the most unique actors to have ever lived and, let’s be honest, it’s very unlikely that there will ever be another who can rival him.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer

Growing up, I was a massive fan of the web-slinging hero. His tongue-in-cheek witticisms and the fast paced action sequences of Marvel’s greatest super hero (in my opinion, at least) were enthralling, to say the least.

When Sam Raimi’s 2002 cinematic adaptation of the aforementioned first hit the silver screen, I was ecstatic. This excitement multiplied exponentially following the 2004 sequel and came crashing down with furious disappointment after the franchise’s closing instalment was released in 2007.

Then, in 2012, Marc Webb restored my faith in the series with The Amazing Spider-Man (and credit where credit is due to Andrew Garfield as well, who helmed the piece with all the original charm and charisma of the titular character, that I had long since forgotten).

Hit the jump for the trailer.

Star Wars VII: Lupita Nyong’o considered for role of Sith or descendant of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Frankly, I was dubious when Disney first announced that they intended to make a sequel to the sci-fi classic and, let’s be honest, that’s perfectly reasonable following the prequel trilogy. Jar Jar Binks, I’m looking at you on this one (although Oliver recently revealed to me that he had grown fond of him and Gungans in general, which I’m not happy about).

However, now that it has really started to take form, I can’t help but get excited. It was recently revealed that director J.J. Abrams was sizing up a number of potential male leads and now rumours of a potential major female character have also surfaced.
