A Toast to the Giants

Ever since the creation of film, creative storytellers have desired to put larger than life villains in the path of our favorite heroes. Are we only concerned about the little guy? Why not give some recognition to the giants? When I say giants, I’m not just talking about goliath, I’m talking giants of every shape and size with the one common characteristic; villainous.

In this vlog, I’m tipping my hat and raising my glass to a few dozen giants from our favorite live action films. I of course had to add in characters like Fezzik from The Princess Bride, who ironically first appears to be dangerous, than becomes a good guy soon after we get to know him.

From the lesser known goliaths, to the big name giants in popular movies, we salute you for giving us more reason to cheer on the hero.
