MooPig Education Department :: "A Plausible School of Villainry"

[Picture LINK] The Maurice Strong School of Strong Villains

To have a story line one needs a villain and a hero. It is true for any form of story telling. The referenced article mentions that believable villains do not exist in today's modern cinema. Depictions are not realistic, and tend to stereotype villain characters. Woe is me.

And I thought every villain is a master mind criminal, with a fortune hid away from his nemesis's. What the article suggests is that one needs an advanced psychology degree in order to characterize a realistic villain today.

This is why our editors in MooPig Education Department think it is a good time to start developing good villains in primary and secondary schools. "We should start our young thespians at an early age to make certain there are plenty of realistic villains available to cinema, Internet, and for what ever comes next," said R. B. Guiles, editor in chief of MooPig Education Department.

"Too many villains let their own ego's get involved in their characterizations," said Sarah P. Body, MooPig Disney Liaison. "With primary psychological research applied to youngsters at tender ages, we may see a shift to more plausible villains in the future."

Why psychopathic film villains are rarely realistic — and why it matters | MinnPost: "But just how clinically realistic are those portrayals? Not very — with a handful of exceptions, according to a paper published recently in the Journal of Forensic Sciences. This finding is of interest to more than just film buffs. Other research has shown that films exert a strong influence on people’s perceptions of mental illness."

'via Blog this'
"You’ll find an abstract of the study at the Journal of Forensic Sciences’ website, but, unfortunately, the study itself (with its list of 126 psychopathic villains) is behind a paywall."

We would like to call our new "School of Plausible Villainry" the Maurice Strong School of Strong Villains. In due course, as people get piled higher and deeper college degrees, some will become authors of better villains, to go along with their unstrung heroes.
