1. MAD MAX
What Revenge Movies should I line up for tonight? Well, take a look at the ultimate list I’ve created. What I love about revenge movies is when they finally catch the guy who has done ’em wrong. I love that moment, when the bad guy knows he’s f#cked and is suffering from total regret for previously wronging the hero. It becomes biblical, old testament sh*t! Vengeance certainly does not seem like a dish best served cold, as you blood boils. Anyway, Mad Max is first on our revenge movies. It gets up there for one reason, that scene when his family are murdered and he takes to the road in vengeance. He becomes a man possessed.
2. OLD BOY
Revenge is a major part of this movie. Everyone wants vengeance, of some sort anyway. The lesson from this movie is don’t f#ck your sister/daughter/brother.
3. ONCE APON A TIME IN THE WEST
Revenge is a common theme in the old west… High Noon, Shane, etc. Cowboys seem to have been a fairly vengeful lot…
4. DEATH WISH
Despite having a Death Wish, he goes on to make several more movies! The first one is the best, just watch that one.
“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you. ” I’m looking forward to Taken 2, I think it’ll be entertaining. If it isn’t I’ll just delete what I said here and no one will ever know.
Maybe this should be higher on the list but I gave it number 1 on my “Good Twists” movie list. A great movie that keeps us guessing, even after watching it for the third time.
7. STRAW DOGS
I love this movie! The locals just keep pushing and pushing and puching, till eventually he cracks and f*cks them up! Strange movie but brilliant. Please don’t watch the remake, some movies don’t deserve remakes and this is one of those movies. One of the all time great revenge movies, should probably be higher on our list (I’ll make up another list, so I can put it Number 1).
What movie should i watch? Pointblank is pretty good. I like how little the amount of money he is seeking is. What a great revenge movie.
9. V FOR VENDETTA
V is for Vengence! I watch this movie evey Guy Fawkes day. Did you know he converted catholicism?
10. STAR TREK THE WRATH OF KHAN
It’s in the name really. Khan, was a wrathful dude…
