The 100 Greatest Movie Villains Of All Time (The Cut List)

Famed sculptor and pizza enthusiast Michelangelo once said, “The sculpture is already complete within the marble block, before I start my work. It is already there, I just have to chisel away the superfluous material.” While never being my favorite ninja turtle, he is nonetheless correct. Obviously the process between creating a list and sculpting a statue is completely different, the logic is still the same. Just chisel away everything that doesn’t belong and you’re left with nothing but your vision.

This list is made up of everything that isn’t part of the vision. Not to say that these were easy cuts. Far from it but sacrifices must be made. These are the villains that barely missed the cut.
