    Default Bad Guys (movie)

    This is a video by the same guy who made the one on the top 10 giant movie monsters. That's his list of the most badass guys in movies.

    I find the clip hilarious, but, apart from that: do you see any general pattern? What is this guy seeing in those villains to make them the "most badass"? Does it tell us something about the author, and/or about what is generally perceived to be the characteristics of a "badass"?

    Warning!!!!!!!!!: most of the scenes are rather harmless, but you do have the death of Capt. Rhodes where he is torn apart, alive, by zombies; and a guy shooting someone's hand. If you are sensitive to such things, skip it.

    I don't know if it's socionicly signifigant, but they all seem to be very spaz-like and so intensely over-the-top that even when they're serious they come off as ridiculous and humorous. They seem think of themselves as more threatening and intimidating than they actually are or are perceived to be by others.

    They all remind me of an evil version of this guy someone posted in Beta.


    "His feeling that this world is not his Fatherland, and that it does not represent his proper condition, so to speak—his feeling that, basically, he 'comes from afar'—will remain a fundamental element which will not give rise to mystical escapism and spiritual weakness, but rather will enable him to minimise, to relativise, to refer to higher concepts of measure and limit, all that can seem important and definitive to others, starting with death itself, and will confer on him calm force and breadth of vision." — Julius Evola

    AVGN is obviously INTp.

    Anyway, he's attracted to Se, but when he sees "Betas" "misusing" it, he thinks, "Wow! What an asshole! This guy's evil but he's a badass!"

    EDIT: And the opposite can be seen in his reaction to Gamma Se, where his unabashed worship of characters like Rocky borders on sodomy.

    Bennett from COMMANDO is my fave.

    That seems about right.

    The guy who "plays" the AVGN sometimes makes other videos as "himself," such as movie reviews and Top 10 lists, which are similar to the AVGN movies in tone, but meant to be taken more seriously, (the exception being the "You Know What's Bullshit!" series) whereas the AVGN reviews are serious critiques, but with a harsh, exaggerated delivery that is obviously meant to be funny.

    So yeah, it's a serious ranking.

    LMAO at this whole video.
    The whole thing was a complete joke. By "badass," I think he really meant "stupid tool."
    After I saw the clip of Scar using the girlie elliptical machine, I was like "Biff from 'Back to the Future' totally has to be on this list." and he was! because Biff is the ultimate pussy wimp ass who pretends to be macho.

    No way, he's my role model...every time I want to do something,
    I think to myself, 'what would Biff say?', and then act accordingly.
    Anyway I like this top ten much better...how would you type JC?

    Jackie Chan would have to be alpha NT... Probably ENTp.

    Personally, when I think "villain", I think Negative/Result + Ti (INTj and ESTp). Examples:

    Last Man standing's Hickey, INTj:


    Carnivale's Brother Justin, ESTp:


    Nothing beats that bone-chilling cold, condemning, impatient "answers, now" attitude.

    ENTp is definitely a possibility...
