7 Favorite Ascot-Wearing Villains

Badass ascots

Villains come with many quirks; megalomania, sociopath, obsessive compulsiveness.  You name it, there’s some villain with that attribute.  One of the more fun type of villains is one that is a fancy dresser.  Tuxes.  Three piece suits.  Battle armor.  Ascot.

“OMG, you totally need to see…”

Untitled-1

“OMG, you haven’t seen John Dies At the End?  You totally have to see it, like right now…”  It’s not often that I stumble upon a movie that I fall instantly in love with.  A flick that hits me in just the right spot, that combination of tone, music, screen presence, and engaging story that’s
