Can't go wrong with Christian Bale's memorable role as the young, hip professional by day, psycho killer at night role in American Psycho. He did justice to the brilliant book by Bret Easton Ellis from which the movie was based on. Book loyalists can say anything they want, but that doesn't change the fact that Patrick Bateman was one, devilishly handsome, murderous motherf-cker.

This movie may but it hilariously depicted the typical American yuppie lifestyle. I loved it. I love how this movie focused on Bateman's unsound state of mind rather than the bloodshed that went on in between the scenes. Just the right amount of blood but a whole lot of narcissism.

With no further ado, Patrick Bateman everyone.

This particular scene made us question whether Patrick Bateman was really one psychotic killer or simply a plain psychopathic schizophrenic.

Patrick Bateman: Do you know what Ed Gein said about women?

David Van Patten: Ed Gein? The maitre 'd at Canal Bar?

Patrick Bateman: No, serial killer, Wisconsin, the '50s.

Craig McDermott: So what did he say?

Patrick Bateman: "When I see a pretty girl walking down the street, I think two things. One part wants me to take her out, talk to her, be real nice and sweet and treat her right."

David Van Patten: And what did the other part think?

Patrick Bateman: "What her head would look like on a stick... "
