Top 10 Movie Characters You Don’t Want As Neighbors


I am not quite sure if this list that I compiled is extremely accurate from the standpoint of the fact that I have watched a ton of movies over my lifetime. It usually requires me to extensively search the archives of my memory to recall them all, as I have probably forgotten more movies than most have taken the time to actually watch. So if you see a part two or a part three version of this list in the future, don’t be surprised. It is my own, personal belief that a movie is only as good as the portrayal/performance of the featured antagonist. Some of our most memorable characters in movies are usually those that are so polarizing, that one line from the movie, will trigger a thought inside your mind that will remind you of just how menacing they were. Lines like “Poor little Clarice”, “Say hello to my little friend”, “No, I am your father” and “Here’s Johnny” all have left their indelible marks on movie history. So in staying true to my movie obsessed ways, I started to recall some of the memorable antagonists that may not go down in the annals of Oscar caliber performances; however, they do deserve recognition for making “being bad” look so damn good to the point where you ponder whether people like this really exist in society. I decided, due to their beyond believable performances, to place them into my personal category that I entitled “Movie Characters You Don’t Want As Neighbors”. Here’s my “tentative” Top 10 list in no particular order:

John Lithgow (Earl Talbot Blake) Ricochet (1991)
Jeffrey Wright (People’s Hernandez) Shaft (2000)
John Travolta (Dennis Ford) The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009)
Tom Cruise (Vincent) Collateral (2004)
Michael Eklund (Michael Foster) The Call (2013)
Kevin Costner (Earl Brooks) Mr. Brooks (2007)
Javier Bardem (Raoul Silva) Skyfall (2012)
Isabelle Fuhrman (Ester) Orphan (2009)
Edward Norton (Aaron Sampler) Primal Fear (1996)
Lynn Whitfeld (Victoria) Madea’s Family Reunion (2006)

I am willing to guarantee that this aforementioned list, will cause you to lock your doors and shut your blinds. If not, the microwave popcorn is on me. #Enjoy
