Know Wrath of Khan? It is probably the best Film Series film, with a near-perfect screenplay. It seems to be easily the most quoted movie in the league, to Khan's "From Hell's Heart" speaking and the notorious "Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan! Revenge is indeed a dish that should best be served cold," as the Klingon put it. However, some vengeance plots have functioned colder than others...

Whenever it comes right down to that, too, just several things motivate decent people to do negative stuff like seek vengeance. Sometimes people who already are bad can be pushed to the edge if given sufficient incentive, but very few things create incentives for humans more than revenge.

Being the bigger person in a dispute is a worthwhile virtue, but reading about other people's petty acts of vengeance is still entertaining. Here are a few of our personal favorites!
