Strongly emphasizing the "whiteness" or European (Anglo) characteristics of something, usually villains in movies.
Movies are replete with white villains, but sometimes producers hyperanglicize them by placing strong emphasis on characteristics strongly associated with canonical white culture. For example, British accents in villains are abundant even when the movie takes place in the US. Actors who play villains may already have anglo features such blue eyes or blond hair, but producers want to be sure these features do not go unnoticed and so are hyperanglicized by making them extra-blue (e.g., the colonel in Avatar) or extra-blonde (e.g., Gary Busey in Lethal Weapon).
