Oh sweetie…I'm sorry you found out this way. But…
This shit's awesome, that's why.
At the end of the day, the Daleks’ power doesn’t come from their status as quasi-Nazis, but from a far more troubling place: the fact that they’re fun. This is the 'drive' portion of the death drive — our desire for it. We want to see the Daleks unleashed onto the narrative, knowing full well the effects.
This is where Voyager
becomes the Seven of Nine show!
And why not? She’s far more interesting than two thirds of the regular cast...I love Seven’s introduction as the tubes snap away and she steps out of the smoke and shadows and declares ‘I speak for the Borg’. At this point you think how the hell can this drone become one of the crew? Ryan plays the drone icy cold just as she should be without a hint of emotion. Seven makes a wonderful observation that every action and decision they make is debated and conflicted — perhaps they could do with a little Borg uniformity.
Back at Bison's crib— and I'm not just being glib here
, he really does have an official crib, complete with shag carpeting
, velvet paintings of himself
, and mood lighting
— Chun-Li is trying to evoke some real emotion as she explains her backstory and why she's on a quest for vengeance against Bison. Something to do with her father getting killed, blah blah blah
. I'm not really listening; instead I'm watching Raul change out of his paramilitary leatherwear and in his paramilitary eveningwear: a velvet officer's cap and the coolest smoking jacket I've ever seen. Look at Raul Julia, this pimp daddy!
He's lookin' good! He might be a terrible general, his men unqualified goons, and his tactics highly ineffective but man, does he ever know how to coordinate a wardrobe. He's even got a hat tree with about eight different-colored caps so he can rotate his uniforms without clashing with only one hat. I bet he brings all the chicks up to his pad to see this. Bet you anything he's got a skull-shaped jacuzzi
The Empress responds to Profion’s accusations by raising her voice slightly. (I must clarify something here: I don’t think Thora Birch is a bad actress. She just doesn’t care
and is making no attempt to hide that fact.) Her climactic point to the Council is pretty much, 'Screw you guys, I’m going home
', and she strides out like the angry teenage daughter on a bad sitcom...Profion does a cool golf clap
and declares, 'A wonderful performance.
' (Jeremy) Irons
really earned his paycheck just choking that out, though he gets to follow it up with, 'Is now not the time we should act?
' That’s probably more what he was thinking. Profion gets the remaining Council riled up for war, working the crowd like he’s cutting a promo for a steel cage match, throwing in a few good villainous gestures
because he’s that awesome.
looks like he’s having an absolute blast playing such a jerk, and it’s so fun to watch. Matt
: He and Mystique just ruling the cool kids’ table, making fun of everyone else’s backpacks.
Several characteristics set Kain apart from the pack of typical 'evil murdering jerk anti-hero' protagonists.. One is the honesty and integrity belying his pompous arrogance and sadism. He'll gladly hack you to pieces with a pair of hatchets, but would never think of lying
to you about it (or anything else). Unlike your Kratoses
, and Duke Nukems
, Kain boasts a little something called "class." Can you think of any other video game bad-asses whose big catch phrases are in freaking Latin
? And Kain brims with charisma, in spite of his appearance. Let's face it: compared to the illustriously-dressed and silken-haired vampire Alucard
, Kain looks like a doofus. However, Kain has more personality in his forehead — his big, white, egg-shaped forehead
— than Alucard carries in his whole ninety-pound bishonen body.
Power corrupts. Knowledge is power. Study hard. Be evil.
I sit outside, and I count my money, and I play with the animals in the desert.

A villain is someone that has to fool you all the time. He has many more facets to his character, many more sides to his humor. He has to be charming, and witty, and decadent, and funny. He is much
more fun to play.
It's always more fun to play a villain. It's just a well-known fact.
It was fun being the cowboy, and it's great doing the Indian... It's fun to be the power. I walk on the set, actually, when new people come in—especially new, young, pretty girls—and I go, 'You know, I'm very rich. I have a really big limousine.
Thank you for writing me my Hans Gruber
