Villains Who Were Right All Along

http://www.cracked.com/article_18417_9-famous-movie-villains-who-were-right-all-along.html

What a funny article! I love this paragraph:

Anheuser didn’t simply wake up one day and think to himself “Today, I shall be a massive dickcheese for no good reason.” When he closed the entrance to the arks, it was because a mile-long tsunami was coming their way, threatening to violently flush humanity’s last hope down earth’s crapper. It was either the few thousand people outside, or the few hundred thousand inside, and someone had to make that call. Luckily, Anheuser wasn’t born with a burnt sack of crap where his brain should be.

And this one:

There certainly is a major villain in The Rock but it’s not General Hummel. Ironically, it’s the U.S. government, something you wouldn’t expect in a movie by Michael “Star Spangled ‘Splosion” Bay. Hummel was only doing this in the first place because the government used him and his troops for illegal clandestine missions all over the world. But Uncle Sam wouldn’t spare a counterfeit wooden nickel for the families of soldiers who died during those missions. For some reason Hummel had a problem with that.

And this piece of dialogue is, oh, so true:

Mufasa: Everything you see exists together, in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance, and respect all the creatures– from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.

Simba: But Dad, don’t we eat the antelope?

Mufasa: Yes, Simba, but let me explain. When we die, our bodies become grass. And the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.

Simba: Wow… Say, Dad, where do the hyenas fit into the great Circle of Life?

Mufasa: Ugh, the hyenas. No, f#@k those guys.

Simba: Yeah, that’s fair.
