Crafting an Authentic Villain

Gone are the days of the mustache-twirling villain who is just evil for evil’s sake. These days to make your villain engaging and believable he or she must be authentic.

So to craft your realistic villain, it’s critical that you see the world from their point of view. After all, “Everyone’s the hero of their own narrative.”

As a great reminder of that truth, has produced another terrific movie-themed article: 26 Great Movies from the Villain’s Point of View.

Here are a few of my favorite user-submitted posters:

The Jewelry Thieves (Lord of the Rings)

The Senator Kelly Story (The X-Men)

Terrible Shepherds (Brokeback Mountain)

Iceberg (Titanic)

The Empire Tries Really Hard (The Empire Strikes Back)

Alone (Alien)

The full article has a bunch more great ones, so check it out.

Which one is your favorite? And can anyone explain the “Vector” movie poster to me?
