->My pet theory is that -- being foiled twice by Bond -- Blofeld has gone completely and utterly insane, thus explaining all the ridiculous campness of the film. He’s decided that having a vaguely realistic goal and a reasonable method of achieving it (if you call [[Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice a spaceship-eating machine]] reasonable) just isn’t for him. And instead he’s going to go nuts. There’s also the possibility that Bond actually killed the real Blofeld at some point and the man who currently looks like Blofeld was the most mentally unstable of the doubles. Or he’s pretty much figured out that Bond is always going to foil him, and has decided to just go along for the ride (“I do enjoy our little visits, Mr. Bond,” he concedes at one point, acknowledging that the end result is never in his favour). No matter which way you look at it, this iteration of Blofeld is one of the most ridiculous bad guys in the franchise’s long history – he makes Drax from ''{{Film/Moonraker}}'' seem sane.

->Apparently Charles is enough of a bastard he is not content with [[BastardBoyfriend screwing up Helen's life]] but [[AndYourLittleDogToo will not pay to keep her mother in the home]]. Can we just admit it here? Charles is Hitler reincarnated. All he needs to do is grow a small Chaplin mustache and make [[SerialKiller skin lamps]] and the picture will be complete. Subtlety movie! I need subtlety!

->Let me put it this way: If Team Avolition goes to a minecraft server, which do you think they are more likely to grief(assuming they can't grief both): A random dirt newb house out in the middle of nowhere, or the ULTIMATE DIAMOND BLOCK SUPER-SPIRE displayed in the creation museum that someone worked many long hours to build?"

->Firstly, we meet a vigilante paedo-priest, and then kiddy-fiddler #3, who’s identified when he’s clocked by Gyllenhaal lecherously caressing a stuffed rabbit at a candlelight vigil. It’s such a pantomimey, ''[[LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek Lifetime Movies]]'' reveal, that you’re one close-up away from a drool-slavered chin and leaky boner-tent.

->Barnett barely seems to want to conceal his guilt in the flashbacks to his hearing – he sits nonchalantly, sipping water and smiling as his crimes are listed. Just in case we didn’t get the idea that he is evil. In the present day he’s like some mad ''Series/DoctorWho'' villain spouting out lines like ''[=‘=]oh ''you’re'' the dead man, Mul-derrr…''[=’=] Every time he calls Mulder up he sounds like he is [[FoeYay ringing a sex chat line]]…sighing and groaning with pleasure.

->[=Exdeath=] is ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''[='s=] primary antagonist, and a rather blatant attempt on Square's part to engineer a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Golbez]] 2.0. His origins are murky: he is referred to as a Dark Mage, but he's actually...well, [[WhenTreesAttack a tree]]. His ultimate goal is to unleash and control the power of the Void because he's an '''evil''' tree. Most of his time onscreen is spent gloating, blowing stuff up, tying moogles to train tracks, and [[DastardlyWhiplash twirling his long, black mustache while demanding the poor sobbing heroine PAY THE RENT]]. Yeah, he's pretty one-dimensional.

->Iago's soliloquy, the motive-hunting of a motiveless malignity -- how awful it is!
-->-- '''Creator/SamuelTaylorColeridge'''

->When you're playing a character of solid blackness, that in itself is very interesting, in the sense that you have no other motivation other than the accumulation of power. It's not so much about not having a moral center, it's just that the only thing that mattered is increasing power.
-->--'''Ian [=McDiarmid=]''' on playing '''[[Franchise/StarWars Palpatine]]'''

->I became evil for no reason. I had no motive for my wickedness except wickedness itself. It was foul, and I loved it. I loved the self-destruction, I loved my fall, not the object for which I had fallen but my fall itself. My depraved soul leaped down from your firmament to ruin. I was seeking not to gain anything by shameful means, but shame for its own sake.
-->-- '''[[HeelFaithTurn Saint]] Augustine'''

->To see others suffer does one good, to make others suffer even more: this is a hard saying but an ancient, mighty, human, all-too-human principle... Without cruelty there is no festival.
-->--'''Creator/FriedrichNietzsche''', ''On the Genealogy of Morals''

->The pleasure in complete domination over another person (or other animate creature) is the very essence of the sadistic drive. Another way of formulating the same thought is to say that the aim of sadism is to transform man into a thing, something animate into something inanimate, since by complete and absolute control the living loses one essential quality of life -- freedom.
-->--'''Erich Fromm'''

->The task of carrying out violence, of killing, leads to perversion. The seductiveness of violence, the fascination with the grotesque--the Bible calls it 'the lust of the eye'--the god-like empowerment over other human lives the drag of war combined, like the ecstasy of erotic love, to let our senses command our bodies. Killing unleashing within us dark undercurrents that see us desecrate and whip ourselves into greater orgies or destruction.
