If I’m making a character a villain–they stay a villain. I might go back in time to the one point that could have kept them from going completely off the chain, but I am not going to have a confused, indecisive villain…The hero makes a few mistakes that one might wanna kick his/her ass over once in a while–but the villain just flies off the freaking chain! I want my villains to be hated, loathed and totally detested by the reader–even if I have to make them totally unacceptable to society. It’s rather therapeutic to write them that way and watch them get theirs…What character in a movie or book do you think is the ULTIMATE villain? One of mine is the mother in “Precious. Just for Mo’Nique‘s performance alone as a villain (Mary), it is worth watching even if one gets totally pissed off over it! By the end of that movie, I don’t know of a single viewer that didn’t want to kick her ass–meaning that character! Mo’Nique did a great job!
Seriously…What character is your ultimate villain? “Shylock”? Richard III? Cain? J. R. Ewing?
Well here’s a link to my top ones but they deal with film…Whether in a movie, TV show or a book, I want to know your thoughts so PLEASE share them! Thanks!
