YAM Magazine’s Top12 Film Villains of the Noughties

#10 – #7

Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove

Ah, how shall I do it? Oh, I know. I’ll turn him into a flea, a harmless, little flea, and then I’ll put that flea in a box, and then I’ll put that box inside of another box, and then I’ll mail that box to myself, and when it arrives… [laughs] I’ll smash it with a hammer! It’s brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, I tell you! Genius, I say! 

Loki from Thor/The Avengers

Kneel before me. I said… KNEEL! Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It’s the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life’s joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.

Captain Vidal from Pan’s Labyrinth (El Laberinto del Fauno)

Garces is right. You’d do better to tell us everything. But to make sure it happens, I brought along a few tools. Just things you pick up along the way. At first I won’t be able to trust you, but after I use this, you’ll own up to a few things. When we get to these we’ll have developed a… how can I put this? A closer bond, much like brothers. You’ll see. And when we get to this one, I’ll believe anything you tell me.

Idi Amin from The Last King of Scotland

Yes, we are aware he’s a real person. That doesn’t NOT make him a villain in the movie.

    I kinda LOVE this list.

    I’d have to say Mokilok from The Cell and Lee Woo-jin from OldBoy should be contenders, though I suppose if I wanted to vote for them I should’ve vistited Facebook… whoops… HaHa.

    OH! And Hexxus from Ferngully! That thing was DISGUSTING and evil all at the same time!!!

    Can a mysterious plague outbreak be considered a villian? If so… that deadly shit from The Grave of Fireflies is a good candidate.
