      1. Hi, Would it be okay if I substituted Patrick McGoohan in Silver Streak and Braveheart for my original choice? Just saw Silver Streak again, and was reminded how menacing he could be! 🙂

  1. Last year I went for the more humorous pick. I think I’ll take a more serious tack this year. To wit, I chose…


  2. Another one, if I may? Christine, the evil car from John Carpenter’s version of the Stephen King novel. (Note: I may fill up the whole weekend at this rate…)

  3. One more, but that’s it. I think 3 is all I can handle in a week. But I just re-watched Westworld. Yul Brynner as the Robot Gunslinger makes an almost perfect choice for a villain, dontcha think? So here is my schedule that I will commit myself to follow through:

    April 25: The Robot Gunslinger in “Westworld”
    April 27: “Christine”
    April 29: “The Wrath of Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnn!!!!”

  4. I’ve just returned to blogging after taking a long hiatus due to the passing of my aunty on New Years Eve. I just seen this blogathon announcement, and will definitely join, as its one of my favorite blogathons. I’m just mulling over a few villains.

    On my return, I’ve announced another blogathon, and you are cordially invited to participate. The link is below with more details.

    1. Sorry to hear that, nice to see you interested in joining, should be a lot of fun. Thanks for the news and I’ll check that out for sure. Thanks!
