Face Reveal Scenes in Movies

These films were filled with action, suspense and some considerable character development, but many were shielding us from knowing the faces of one of its chief subjects. And when that moment finally came, it was often climactic and surprising.

FYC, AFI - The Next Top 50 Villains

This is the first of a poll series whose purpose is to anticipate the inclusions in the next American Film Institute's Top 25, 50 or 100 lists. As you may know, many lists date back to the late 1990s and early 2000s and while the inclusions are satisfying, the absences severely date them. We will start with AFI's Top 50 villains aired on 2003 with Alonzo Harris from Training Day (2001) as the most recent character. So we'll consider movies from 2003 till today whose villains fit the AFI's criteria in terms of cultural impact: characters who have a made a mark on American society in matters of style and substance, and legacy: characters who elicit strong reactions across time, enriching America's film heritage while continuing to inspire contemporary artists and audiences. In the eventuality of a new AFI's Top 50 villains, which of these memorable post-2003 screen villains would be your top choice for an inclusion (as high as possible)?

When the Villain Wins an Oscar

When supporting characters are not that 'supporting' ... when the leads lead a selfish crusade in the name of greed, cruelty or a wicked vision of power ... or when the darkest sides of the human soul inspire powerful and unforgettable perforamances allowing the villain to have a final revenge... and take the Oscar home. Which of these oscar-winning performances as a real-life or fictional villain is your favorite? After voting, you may discuss the list here (PS: Vito Corleone isn't included not because he's a good guy but to call him a 'villain' in the film's narrative would make no sense, his son Michael was a villain in the second opus, although a tragic one)
