The Best Villains of 2005
Tunnel Visioned Politicians, Spookily Calm Freelance Hunters, Mad Psychiatrists, and Devious Witches all gave memorable evil this past year at the cinemas. Half metal men who were once in cahoots with the good guys? Not so much. And Voldemort? Don't give me grief --I'm sure we'll be seeing much more of him next year. And the year after that. And the year after that. There is clearly no hope of escape from that franchise.
