    Favorite Hero or Villain

    AFI is having a special on next week with the top 50 movie heroes and villains. Who do you think should be on the list?

    Just saw Neil Labute's new film The Shape of Things, and I definitely have to nominate all the screen 'villains' from his films In The Company of Men, Your Friends and Neighbours, and now The Shape of Things for this list...

    They are extremely evil in a 'real life' sort of way...

    PS: Alan Rickman's character 'Hans Gruber' from the original Die Hard definitely deserves to be in there...

    hero.... Clint Eastwood's Man with no name from his sketti westerns.

    villain.... Henry Fonda from Once Upon a Time in the West... talk about casting against type. He played a real evil villain.

    Ewwwww...now I've creeped myself out. I'll have to think about the heroes category for a little while.

    Great list, Z!

    I'm sure Darth Vader will be in the top 3, if not #1.

    Z, how could you leave off Sir Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs) from your villains list?

    How about Cruella DeVille in 101 Dalmations? She's definately a villain. And Sigourney Weaver in the Alien movies as the hero. Don't limit yourself to men. We have our share of nasties and heroes too.

    Ripley is an outstanding hero, gracie. Good call. Let's just forget about Alien 3, though, OK? Yeah, that's better.
