I recently watched all the Star Wars films and yes, while Revenge of the Sith was the least worst of the prequels...nearly every line of dialogue made me cringe.  Also, it might just be nostalgia, but I still love Return of the Jedi nearly as much as Empire.

You'll put the Star Wars PREQUELS on this list, but not Pulp Fiction?  Or Resevoir Dogs?  Or Scarface?  Or Goodfellas?  Or One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?  Or ANY movie where people are truly HORRIBLE people as opposed to being terminally stupid?  REALLY?!!

 The thing you have to remember about the Star Wars prequels is that Obi-Wan and Yoda are, in fact, Sith Lords.  Think about it:  the entire Jedi Order is wiped out down to the last youngling, but those two manage to survive.  Just like Darth Sidious and Darth Vader, the latter of whom was, of course, the apprentice of... Obi-Wan.  And, of course, "only a Sith speaks in absolutes."  Like, say "Do or do not, there is no try?"

I'm with Caveman, this list must have been thought up on the crapper, because clearly no real thought went into it.

And I'd like to add The Professional to that list.

And while we're at it, this site is always condeming the Punisher movies. And now you say they are Great Movies about Horrible People. Make your damn mind up.

What about Dexter?  He's a homicidal sociopath.

The Star Wars prequels had Palpatine in them and Phantom Menace, pod races and such aside, was argueably about him.  It was his plan which succeeded.  He was a bad guy.

With all due respect, fenngibbon, that seems like an awful stretch.  And yes, Kara, Palpatine was a horrible person, but the entire argument offered here is the ineptitude of the heroes, somehow making them horrible people.  Good can't help it that it always hopes for the best, and that doesn't make them horrible people.  Just a stupid addition to the list, IMO.
