It’s one of the oldest clichés in movies: The big villain, going on and on about his evil schemes when he could just kill the hero dead right there. As long as there have been motion pictures, bad guys have wanted to tell people about their incredibly clever plans to rule the world instead of just doing them and saving us all some time. It’s funny how many of these speeches recycle the same phrases and themes over and over. And that gave ScreenCrush’s Brad Hanford an idea: To create the ultimate movie villain monologue compiled from all the best movie (and TV) villain monologues throughout history.

Above, you’ll see the results: A video that combines 40 different movie villain monologues into one epic rant. We’ve got lots more videos and video essays coming in the future.
