« on: June 17, 2019, 05:03:39 AM »
Calling all cars!  Calling all cars!  We are overrun with criminals and we need your help in capturing them.  Luckily, we had a lot of help from 15 assistant profilers who can tell us about the criminals and villains in question, and then ranked them in order of capturing priority.  Starting from the least and going all the way up, please read these files closely or risk losing your edge to these fiendish foes!

Warden Samuel Norton

23 Points, 2 Lists, #9 Cole Stratton

I believe in two things: discipline and the Bible. Here you'll receive both. Put your trust in the Lord; your ass belongs to me. Welcome to Shawshank.

Wanted For Prisoner abuse, being obtuse

Profile

Warden Samuel Norton is a villain in the film The Shawshank Redemption.  The warden of Shawshank State Penitentiary, treating his prisoners with disdain and abuse in the guise of discipline.  Warden Norton eventually takes an interest in a prisoner named Andy Dufresne, who was imprisoned for murdering his wife, when he learns a prison guard has received extremely helpful tax advice from Andy.  He allows him to work in the library and in return Andy works on the finances of other guards and the warden himself.  However, when Andy plays music from his recently restored library, he is punished with solitary confinement.  Even worse, when a prisoner reveals he has information that might free Andy from prison, he has him shot.

Samuel Norton is a hypocrite of the highest order, preaching the good word and discipline, but merely exploiting his prisoners for his own gain.  When you think things are going to be OK because he gives Andy some leeway for helping him out, it turns out he treats him as a tool and tries to beat the hope out of him.

Bob Gunton is great in the role, making a villain who is sort of believable and yet the classic “boo-hiss” kind of villain that you can’t wait to see get what is coming to him.  I won’t spoil too much but it happens twice and both times are some real catharsis for the audience who have had to watch Andy and friends go through a lot due to his cruelty.

Trivia
Warden Norton whistles Martin Luther's signature hymn "Eine feste Burg ist unser Gott", or "A Mighty Fortress is Our God."

Hannibal Lector

 
23 Points, 3 Lists, #14 Linzoid

Whenever feasible, one should always try to eat the rude.

Wanted For Multiple counts of murder, sous-vide

Profile

Hannibal Lector was a Baltimore socialite and renowned forensic psychiatrist who lived a double life as the Chesapeake Ripper, a psychopathic serial killer and cannibal.  By his nature Hannibal is very cunning and charismatic and tends to have a taste for the finer things in life, often preparing his victims body parts in elaborate and, by all accounts, delicious dishes.  He is known for trying to (and often succeeding) in getting in the heads of people and manipulating them, even once convincing a man in the next cell over to commit suicide due to Lector’s disgust with his “rudeness”.  Despite his capability to be savage, Lector often likes to maintain an air of elegance, which contributes to his magnetic charisma.

Eventually he was captured by the FBI, in particular FBI profiler Will Graham, but even while in maximum security he is extremely dangerous.  Lector managed to nearly disembowel Graham before being caught and years later manipulated the serial killer Francis Dolarhyde to target will and his family.  Later, FBI Agent Clarice Starling gained assistance from Lector to catch a serial killer named Jamie Gumb but this came at the cost of Clarice letting Lector into her head via traumatic personal information.  Lector escaped shortly thereafter to continue killing once more.

Lector is such a popular character largely because of his magnetic personality but also his aura that is both menace and grace.  It also helps that in the film Silence of the Lambs, he demonstrates a respect for our hero (or, at the very least, a deep fascination), something that isn’t entirely present from the FBI itself despite making her way into it.  Lector has been played by many actors, including Brian Cox’s understated performance in Manhunter, Anthony Hopkins electric and arch performance in his Hannibal films (Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon and Hannibal) and Mads Mikkelson in the beloved Hannibal, wherein the first two seasons the audience gets to see the character before he is publicly revealed to be a killer.

Trivia
In the original novels, Lector has Polydactyly resulting in an extra finger.  In later novels, Lector has it removed, as well as surgically changing his face.

Baltar

 
24 Points, 1 List, #2 RVR II

Profile

Wikipedia again:

“Count Baltar was a leading antagonist in the original Battlestar Galactica (1978) television series. The character betrayed the human race to its enemy, the robot race of Cylons. He was portrayed by Canadian actor John Colicos.
Material deleted from the final broadcast of the episodes explains that Baltar had originally been a Colonial military officer, who led an expedition to discover new sources of tylium for mining. After discovering a particularly rich tylium deposit on Carillon, Baltar decided to go into business for himself, leaving the military. He falsified records, declaring Carillon too minimal for mining, and set himself up with the Cylons and Ovions, who were also mining Carillon.

Towards the last years of The Thousand Yahren War between the Cylons and the Twelve Colonies of Man, Council of Twelve-member Baltar acts as a liaison between the Twelve Colonies and the Cylons, and arranges for a peace conference that would bring an end to the war, with the Cylons apparently conceding defeat. Unknown to the Colonials, however, Baltar has made a deal with the Imperious Leader of the Cylons: Baltar would conduct the peace conference to lull the Colonials into a false sense of security, while the Cylons prepared for a massive attack on the Colonial military and the Twelve Colonies. In return, the Imperious Leader promised Baltar that his home colony would be spared from the attack, and Baltar would be installed as its dictator. It is never stated which of the Twelve Colonies was Baltar's home. The original script states that he was from "Orion", but as this did not make the final version, its canonicity is debatable. Since the Cylons are dedicated to the complete annihilation of humanity, the Imperious Leader goes back on his word, and destroys all twelve Colonies in the attack.

A handful of humans flee in civilian ships, under the protection of the (apparently) sole surviving battlestar, the Galactica. In the meantime, Baltar goes before the Imperious Leader aboard his flagship, enraged that the Cylons had not held up their end of the bargain. The Imperious Leader coldly responds by explaining that every human being must be exterminated, and then sentences Baltar himself to death, reasoning that any being who would see his own race destroyed could not be trusted. As originally depicted in the theatrical version, Baltar is supposedly decapitated when one of his Cylon escorts holds him fast and the other draws its sword across Batlar's throat. However, when the film was presented on television preceding the television series, the scene was reshot so that the Imperious Leader instead orders that Baltar be brought away for public execution, presumably to a prison baseship or the Cylon homeworld. Soon thereafter, however, the Imperious Leader is destroyed when his basestar gets too close to the exploding planet Carillon.”
Really surprised Baltar was not on any other lists :o

I didn't think of her for my list, but Eleanor Shaw Iselin is an inspired pick - especially when played by Lansbury...

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/LCjBOZ4r9Ck" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/LCjBOZ4r9Ck</a>

Interestingly, it could have been Lucille Ball in the role... https://canadianken.blogspot.com/2006/08/angela-lansbury-in-manchurian.html


And the Grim Reaper, death, isn't a villain, it's just the natural order of things. I even prayed for him while watching "Men in Black: International" ("please, take me now.")  ;)

White Goodman is all white.  Oh I'm just kicking myself for leaving him off. 

But I'm kicking myself even harder for leaving off Fran Stalinovskovichdavidovitchsky, the deadliest woman on earth with a dodgeball.

Yeesh, do we have more ties to look forward too?

My top 3 are still out there (and my #1 was such a bastard that I'm glad I wasn't the only one voting for them)

Oh and Mantrid… nice one. (er, or should that be, "bad one!")

Honestly, part of my list is based on actor performance and charisma in the role and not necessarily how the villain is written.  It's the only reason Jeremy Irons' character from the D&D movie is even on my list.

Two more.  And because I didn't recognize one, today there is a bonus entry (and some renumbering).

ENJOY!
