The best revenge movies ever

The best revenge movies ever

THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

This is a special time of year in Hollywood, when we express our thanks for our blessings and exact vengeance on the people who wronged us.

We can thank the Thanksgiving holiday for the good feelings associated with the former, and Dwayne "Don't Call Me The Rock" Johnson's new revenge movie "Faster" for the latter.

Well, it's not really fair to blame Johnson for what we're about to do. After all, the revenge theme has been a constant in literature and film for as long as people have been reading books and watching movies.

"Faster," starring the wrestler-turned-actor as a man bent on avenging the death of his brother, doesn't open until Nov. 24, but it inspired us to think about a popular movie genre.

Here is a countdown of the 30 best revenge movies of all time.
