Vilain or the Hero: which is cooler?

you ever find the villain more funny and appealing than the Hero? Like in the movie "Robinhood, men in tights" the villian is absolutely hilarious. Maybe he should be the goodguy, i mean maybe he didnt mean to evil? Oh and darth vader, he is pretty cool too.

anway, heres to all the villains out there.

disclaimer: This is not condoning terrorism, real evil or any type of violence or aggression towards women and gentlemen. Just saying villians in movies can be pretty cool.

In cartoons growing up, I usually prefered the bad guys/gals...

In rubbishy He-Man I hated dreary He-Man and his crappy friends...

But Skeletor was entirely cool, and as for Evil-Lyn...yay!

Its a similar pattern for most cartoons.

In Bond movies I usually prefer the bad guys too...I always thought James Bond was a smug so and so and deserved a beating and a kicking...my fave bond villains include...

The Man with the Golden Gun, (Christopher Lee in typical top villain form)
Max Zorin (Good old Christopher Walken)
Xenia Onatopp (The gorgeous, vampy, Famke Janssen...who killed people by crushing them to death between her thighs... )

My affection for bad guys doesn't extend to more serious films baddies, but in anything vaguely tongue-in-cheek then the bad guys are usually a lot more interesting. Villainous women are especially cool.

Well, I played my fair share of both over my long career. I liked to give the villain a vulnerable, likable side. It makes it more complex and gives the audience more to think about. Like in "I Want to Live!" I made villain/murderess Barbara Graham look like the most likable dame in the world. Audiences were in TEARS as I/she went to the gas chamber for the last time and those cyanide pellets hit the acid and she starts chocking and gagging all over the place! Sheer brilliance on my part! Then you have the just nasty to the core villian I played in Valley of the Dolls, that was fun, but at that point, I was just after the dough, it wasn't a hard part to play. But I enjoyed the nice, girl-next door roles, too, like Cousin Drusilla in Reap the Wild Wind or the vulnerable drunk Angie in Smash Up. Plus I threw some tunes your way in Smash Up as well.

Wow, I really was versatile now that I think about it.

Definitely the vilains. Whether I like a film is most of the time decided by how 'good' the vilain is. For instance I loved the first Die hard movie because of the superb acting of 'vilain' Alan Rickman (similar in Robin Hood)

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

It depends. In general, the villains are more interesting and cooler characters, but sometimes you have some real losers for the big baddy. Being a superhero can be limiting at times as far as character development because of the hero's moral obligation to the public and to do good etc.

I agree...it really does depend on the person you get to play the character. You need someone who has the same personality, or can get the same personality. It really does depend....I've always like the superhero's though, however, the villians are always clever on how they try to plan their wreckening on the superheros!
