Remember when Samuel L Jackson used to ACT?

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
 Guilty of: Hungry for power. Gluttonous cheese lust. Lies. Kidnapping. Bad Drag. Attempted child murder. And that small matter of genocidal rage. 
Accomplices: Mr Trout & Mr Pickles (at least at first) and sadistic Mr Gristle
Sentence: Death by gluttony
  Guilty of: Mentally torturing the depressed and grieving. Causing insomnia and homicidal impulses.
Accomplices: Pop-up book nightmares. Depression. Anxiety. Repressed feelings. And Nosferatu for the inspiration.
Sentence: "You can't get rid  of the Babadook" 
 Guilty of: Sadism, Worshipping False idols ("The Engine!"), Inciting violence and prejudice with belittling hateful speeches "Know your place!". Close minded fashion sense: Why can't shoes be hats?
Accomplices: Everyone in the front of the train.
Sentence: Death. You have to admit she had it coming.
 Guilty of: Ignoring her feelings, Repressing yours with her well-intentioned but extremely dangerous Reverse Pandora's Box / Medusa act. Nearly rids the world of magic
Accomplices: Owls. You, if you're scared of your own feelings
Sentence: Sweet teary-eyed redemption

 Guilty of: Multiple assassinations, soiling bromantic memories, causing frequent unthinkably gnarly traffic jams, using your weapons against you, Not washing his hair
Accomplices: Amnesia. But mostly H.Y.D.R.A. (They're always to blame!) 
Sentence: On the loose. Cappy in hot pursuit 

 

 

Finalists: Lord Business (Will Ferrell and animators) in The LEGO Movie is an ingenious creation, and a nice dodge for a movie that couldn't be more of a business move; The Witch (Meryl Streep) and Amazing Amy (Rosamund Pike) in Into the Woods and Gone Girl if you'd like to classify them as such but are we sure we want to?

Semi Finalists:  Michel (Christophe Paou) in Stranger by the Lake; Xibalba in The Book of Life; John DuPont in Foxcatcher; 

Dishonorable Mention? Why are the villains of How To Train Your Dragon 2 and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes so racialized? Koba from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is scary and memorable and I probably would have nominated him but he's also a dark colored ape and the only one with  an African sounding name (the others get European or American sounding names like Caesar, Maurice, and Blue Eyes). And as far as I can tell the only non-Scottish dark skinned character in all of the Dragon 2 universe is Drago the villain? Uncomfortable

Both of those villains are memorable at least which can't really be said for the villains of Divergent, Maze Runner, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men or other blockbusters. Lame villains in mainstream hits are an epidemic!
