hans gruber was number 4?! he wasn't half the villain that the joker and col. kurtz were!
Myself, I prefer Rickman's Nottingham over Gruber...
Tyler Durden and Gunnery Seargent Hartman werent villans at all!
Tyler IMO saved 'Jacks' life and Hartman was trying to prepare the boys for war, would you sit in a foxhole with Pyle before Hartman molded him?
WHERES ANGEL EYES FROM 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly'?
Trouble with Darth Vader as number one villain is that Lord Lucas turned him into a hero at the last minute, wiping out the Evil Emperor of the known universe and saving his son at the same time.
[shite what a huge spoiler that was, sorry, sorry everyone]
Where's Messala? Ben-Hur's sneaky opponent in 30AD's Jerusalem Grand Prix Championships.
Other top villains missed out were Christopher Lee as 'Saruman the White' from Lord of the Rings and Christopher Lee as 'Count Dooku the Bad' from Attack of the Clones, also Christopher Lee as... [Steve enough with the Christopher Lee's, get off!]
I certainly wouldn't want to sit with Pyle AFTER Hartman was finished with him!
I liked Nicole Kidman in Malice and Christopher Walken in At Close Range, IMO they deserve to be in the top 100 at least.
Did I miss it, where is Al Pachino for his role in The Godfather?
Actually, I was surprised at the quality of the list. While it had the usual bias toward recent films, even villains from the silent era made the list. And, as in all lists many would question some of the ordering. Hans is probably the most egregious example.
But I think the outstanding entry is:
Roger Smith (himself) in Roger & Me. Brilliant!
I'm suprised Pin Head wasn't included.
I really don't think that Norman Bates should be that high on the list. While I LOVE Psycho and all things Hitchcock, I have never seen Norman as a 'meanie.' If anything, I believe that his role has always been as a victem himself of what his mother put him through.
I tend to put Norman into more of a sympathy case than an outright villan.
IMO Tuco instead belongs on that list.
No Messala from Ben Hur? He's a better villian than the vast majority of villans on that list.
And what about The Predator? Surely he's more memorable than the the Truck from The Duel.
I think that one requirement for a villian should be that he can't be the movie's protagonist. After all, how villanous can he be if he's the character we're supposed to care about the most? That would elminate the guy from Clockwork Orange and a lot of others on that list.
I concur, no mention of my beloved Predator!?
I've always said that William Sadler as Col. Stuart from Die Hard 2 was way more dastardly than Hans was. Afterall the man crashed a planeload of people on Christmas eve killing everyone just for fun and to make a point! Bummer.
I was wondering: Is Hannibal really a villain in the true sense? He was not really a protagonist, at least in Silence of the Lambs. Of course, he's not a nice guy, at all, but he was an ally of Clarice, after all... sort of. Maybe I'm missing the boat, but I really didn't consider Hannibal the "villain" of those movies. I haven't seen Red Dragon and of course Hannibal doesn't exactly bear out my argument. But I think you might see where I'm coming from.
