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!
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.

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
