very good post.
me and my step son love movies where the good guy doesn't win.
(just cause we are bored with Hollywood's ideas of formula movies..
& not cause we are bad people.. I thought I better clarify that :-)
in answer to your question.
i.e. the best 5 bad villains,
I'm not sure I can come up with as many as five that tick my boxes.
I struggle to even think of one, who does "bad" the way I imagine in my mind they should be.
I'm really struggling to think of any here,
so I guess I'd have to say the joker (although even he wasn't bad enough for me.)
but I thought Keith's performance in that bat man movie was as good as bad gets.
it's a shame we lost him in real life.
rest in peace Keith.
all the best.
