5/20 Evil Sidekicks What’s a film without a good bad guy? And what antagonist could do all their dirty work without a henchman? Edmund Stone brings out the best music for the baddest of the bad - evil sidekicks in movies. Jeer along as Odd Job and Jaws give James Bond a hard time in Goldfinger and The Spy Who Loved Me; sneer at Horace and Jasper in Cruella, mutter with the Minions, and be spellbound by the evil of Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix.

Find out how the Avenger Natasha Romanoff became the Black Widow; see what was going on in The Shire with The Hobbit and get a look into what Star Fleet Academy was like for the cadets who would one day be the crew of the Enterprise in Star Trek.
