Villains come in many shapes and sizes. However they all have a few things in common: they’re all creepy, evil, and the best at what they do. Psychopathic clowns? Check. Ruler of the galaxy? Check. Killer sea creature? Check. Halloween is almost here, so I’m counting down the ten best movie villains of all-time. This list will contain some SPOILERS, so read at your own risk.
The Walk is directed by Robert Zemeckis and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It tells the true life events of a man whose dream was to tie a rope in between the two towers of the World Trade Center, and walk across it in 1974. Yes, it is a true story. I think Robert Zemeckis has solidified himself as one of the greats after directing classics like Back to the Future, Forrest Gump and Cast Away. But just in case anyone doubted his ability, he makes another good film.
Sicario is directed by Denis Villeneuve and tells the story of an FBI agent (Emily Blunt) who gets involved with another task force to fight the war against drugs in Mexico. Denis Villeneuve has quickly become one of my favorite directors after creating phenomenal films like Prisoners (2013) and Enemy (2014). Now, Sicario is added to his excellent filmography.
The Martian is directed by Ridley Scott and is about an astronaut who is stranded on Mars after a storm hits, and his crew must abandon him. I’ve been a fan of Ridley Scott ever since seeing great movies made by him including Alien (1979) and Gladiator (2000). So I was expecting some good things from this movie, and he didn’t disappoint.
Whether they deal with robots, aliens, or advanced technology, all science fiction films need to have one thing in common; they need to intrigue us and make us invested in what’s happening on screen. For this list, I choose my five personal favorite movies from the sci-fi genre.
In all of the excess free time, students are finding new ways to entertain themselves if they don’t enjoy the movie.
