    For this Friday Challenge we want you to channel the villain. Dark suits, dark ties, dark shirts, menacing looks, white fluffy lap cats, you know the drill...

    I'm going to open this one up to the whole board, so SW&D folks go nuts.

    ^ important life lesson from that movie: if you ever sustain a grievous injury, just hole yourself in your flat for a while with some cigarettes, and all will be fine

    It is well known that Bane likes to take over the planet in cordovan bit loafers. Bravo.

    Sure this was the other day but there is something mildly villainous about a black turtleneck and black Norwegian Rain Moscow. Wish it was a better photo and not a goofy selfie.

    Checking out the entries so far, it becomes apparent that MC is very vanilla while SW&D represents The Dark Side.

    My vote so far: Beepbop. He looks like a man who can, with a word, make other people take their own lives.

    Because one of the quality of a good villain, is to be able to disapear, I'm playing chameleon with a wall :

    I think that @bienluienapris is onto something. All true cineasts know that the villains in dark suits, smokings and fancy costumes etc are just showing off. It's the guy in the tan suit that you need to keep an extra eye on, especially in French film. Here I'm channeling my inner Gabriel Byrne, unfortunately I miss the rest of the lineup...

    I definitely agreed. And that's a wonderful inspiration, really a great movie and one of the best movie end.

    One of my favorite tan suits was in a French thriller. Fit and styling are a bit non-SF-approved. Padded shoulder; bellied lapel. Slightly low trousers.
