Kate Winslet Takes on Joan Crawford Role


Big mistake. Rumor has it that Mildred Pierce, the 1945 joint that won Joan Crawford an Oscar, is going to be remade as a TV miniseries. Further rumor has it said series will air on HBO. And who’s starring in the title role? .

Don’t get me wrong. I mean, she’s a fine actress. But ? Even Faye Dunaway later regretted trying to take on this silver screen icon.

Heath Ledger: Legendary Villain

Heath Ledger as the Joker

The Dark Knight has yet to hit theaters, yet it’s already shaping up to be ’s greatest flick. Critics are raving, the trailers primarily feature him in grotesque make-up, and Moviefone has added him to their list of great on-screen villains. There’s only one problem: I don’t agree with Moviefone’s list.

The list of Top 25 movie villains includes old favorites like Khan (Star Trek II), Cruella de Ville (101 Dalmations), Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford (Mommie Dearest), Jimmy Cagney as the Public Enemy (love, love, love Cagney), Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers. On Moviefone’s list, Heath’s Joker comes in at Number 5, trumped by Hannibal Lecter, the Wicked Witch of the West (The Wizard of Oz), Darth Vader and Lord Voldemort.

And I think Moviefone is wrong. While there were some on the list who were truly chilling - as Annie Wilkes in Misery, for instance - others were left off the countdown completely. So with no further delay I will name the on-screen villains I found the most frightening and fearsome in big-screen flicks. None of my villains made it to Moviefone’s list and I can’t imagine why.
