20 movie villains and the menacing stories they tell

15 April 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"How do you get rats off an island?" From Skyfall's Silva to Harry Lime, we took at the menacing little stories told by 20 screen villains.

Occasionally, a movie villain will pause for a moment to deliver a brief story or anecdote. And often, these apparently incidental tales tell us a lot about an antagonist's state of mind, experiences or warped worldview.

We've compiled a selection of 20 here. Some of them are blackly funny. Many are disturbing. One or two are even moving. The first one's very strange. All of them bring something unique to each particular film in which they appear, and all of them are laced with a delicious hint of menace.

20. Xander - Enemies Closer (2013)

"When I was a little boy at my grandmama's place, she had a lovely goose. I named her Edith, after the French singer Edith Piaf..."

We begin with a delightfully weird story from Peter Hyams' 2013 thriller, »

Justified, 6.13: “The Promise” ends the series on a heartfelt, elegiac note

14 April 2015 10:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justified, Season 6, Episode 13: “The Promise”

Written by Graham Yost, Fred GolanDave Andron and Benjamin Cavell

Directed by Adam Arkin

Aired Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX

Midway through “The Promise,” the final episode of Justified, a dog-eared copy of George V. Higgins’ The Friends of Eddie Coyle is passed between Marshals Raylan Givens and Tim Gutterson. While there are stricter parallels to be drawn between the novel, which tells the story of the dwindling fortunes of an aging, low-level hood trying to turn informant (or with the excellent film of the same name, featuring a stellar performance from the legendary Robert Mitchum), the prominent placement of the novel is a nod – one of many in this episode – to a mostly bygone era of genre storytelling, one which placed a premium on character, wit and dialogue above flowery prose or postmodern structural games. “The Promise” shows us the Higgins »

"The Interview" of 1969

2 February 2015 5:32 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The Interview and the geopolitical crisis it caused is arguably the most important movie-related story of recent weeks.

The story device featured in The Interview, the idea of a film featuring the assassination of the current ruling leader, is nothing new, and in fact  is seen through much of film’s history. In 1941 a German-in-exile Fritz Lang shown an unsuccessful attack on Adolf Hitler in Man Hunt (this story was also told in BBC’s Rogue Male from 1976 starring Peter O’Toole). The Shaw Brothers used the actual newsreel footage of Queen Elisabeth visiting Hong-Kong (then a British colony) in their 1976 martial arts flick A Queen’s Ransom (a.k.a. The International Assassin) starring post-James Bond George Lazenby as an Ira assassin and Angela Mao as a heroine trying to stop him. In fact, the Queen of England might be the most popular assassination target among actual world leaders »
