Charlize Theron's Remarkable Performance

 
If you haven't seen 'Snow White and The Huntsman' then you're missing out on best villain performance of the year by Charlize Theron. Her evil queen character has a fair amount of scenes but what Charlize Theron does with them has to be seen by anyone that loves visual storytelling. Her evil queen is fraught with reflective nuances, canny eye movements, full body acting. She practically oozes revengeful hatred (directed towards all males!) in every scene she is. In fact, if she had any more great scenes like she has already they would have to call this movie, 'Snow White VS Ravenna, The Evil Queen'. Go check this out or rent it but DO see it. The only performance similar to it in my mind is the David Prowse / James Earl Jones' (voice) performance as Darth Vader in the 'Empire Strikes Back'. And if you remember, that was a damn good, chilling portrayal of evil at the top of it's game (so to speak).
