10 Movie Fat Cats

12 Mar

For the past 30 years eighty percent of all new income generated in the U.S. has gone to the richest one percent. That is a staggering figure, and it can only mean one thing: We love rich people! We love TV shows about them pretending they’re like us, ruining our lives, and even looking for love. And, though even in the whole vast configuration of things they’re nothing but a scurvy little spider, don’t think we don’t love them in the movies, too!  Poor man wanna be rich, rich man wanna be king, and the king ain’t satisfied till he rules everything!

1.Charles Foster Kane
Citizen Kane

He said, “if I hadn’t been very rich, I might have been a really great man.”  Who cares? He’s rich!

2.Auric Goldfinger
Goldfinger

What can he say? He loves gold.

3.Gordan Gekko
Wall Street

Greed is good. Lunch is for whimps.

4.Mr. Potter
It’s a Wonderful Life

It’s not any skin off his nose.

5.Mr. Dawes Sr.
Mary Poppins

Feed the birds and what have you got? Fat birds!

6.Elgin Perkins
Goonies

He’ll throw adorable little Data out of his home.

7.Hedley Lamarr
Blazing Saddles

He wants rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists.

8.Daniel Plainview
There Will Be Blood

He’ll drink your milkshake.

9.Biff Tannen
Back To The Future Part 2

He just wants to say one thing, God Bless America!
