  1. I am very partial to Frank booth in Blue Velvet because no matter how many times i see the film, he is always terrifying but i also think the Hal 9000 computer is up there. Its cool, calm voice comes from a camera panel but its all over the ship and manages to kill almost everyone on the discovery spaceship “for good of the mission”. When it refuses to let Dave back in the ship or even discuss the matter he comes across as pure calculated evil. And you thought I would say Aguirre the wrath of hod again! Oops! i just did!

    1. Frank Booth, brrrrrrr….. he scared the hell out of me. HAL is a great example of a villain who very much doesn’t think of himself (itself) as a villain. And I admire your restraint in not bringing up any Herzog…. DANG IT, VINCE!!!
