    I've been thinking about the best villain moments in Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy and wrote this for What Culture </plug>

    Was wondering what everybody else's favourite villain moments are

    Great choices there. Though I'm surprised Joker's interrogation room scene didn't make your list. That would be my number one. Though his final scene with Batman as your number 1 is a great choice, too.

    I'll go by Villain, 3 for each (it just came to that):

    Ras Al Ghul - Hard to pick, all of his stuff is equally good. I'm going to say either the training montage or when he reveals The League's past attempts at Gotham and talks to Bruce in Wayne Manor. I also really like his first appearance, especially because it sums up Batman's existence.

    Scarecrow - "Lighten Up" by far. I also like his discussion with Rachel about his Asylum. "Out there he was a giant, in here only the mind can grant you power." "Do you enjoy the reversal?". The first scene with his mask is badass, too. "They screamed! And they cried! About as much as you're doing now!"

    Joker - The Interrogation Scene without a doubt, especially at the point where he's gotten Batman punching him in fury and responds with laughter. The video threat was also insanely powerful the first time I saw it, and is still scary. My third would be any one of his speeches, either about scars or his final one with Batman.

    Two-Face - Without a doubt the final scene of the movie. It's magic. A lot of people love to focus on Ledger's performance, but I think Eckhart did an equally good job, this scene being a testament to that. While this may count as a Joker moment, I also really like when Batman first opens the door and sees Harvey. The way Batman walks slowly towards him, knowing he's been had while Harvey yells at him angrilly.

    Bane - Without a doubt the first fight with Batman. That never gets old, watching it for the first time was MAGICAL. It's so brutal, I was hoping that he'd do the scene justice, and he did even before Batman was Broken. I never expected that, but WOW. I also really enjoy his speech to Bruce about the cave, Hardy's delivery is brilliant and the dialogue is so rich "Not of your body....... of your soul." That might be my favourite scene in the movie. Bane is my favourite villain of the series, so it's hard to pick. My third would have to be when he's walking toward Batman and Catwoman on the roof-top before they jump into the bat. I often have a love-hate relationship with these villains, that's part of the fun, but this is scene in particular that struck me as effing scary. Bane was terrifying through this whole scene.

    Catwoman - If she counts, I love the double cross. Nolan really did a good job of writing her and how she goes back and forth between both sides whenever it benefits her. Her initial appearance is fantastic, also. The way she seems cute, charmed by Bruce, and innocent... then in an instant switches to her normal self. Also: there's a that shot where she positions herself on the batpod to fire it.... DAYUM, that makes me feel tingly. I also really dig her dialogue with Bruce at the ball.

    -Scarecrow. "I told you my compound would take you places...I never said they were places you wanted to go." Tied with his appearances as the Judge.
    -Bane. The Sewer Fight. Plus, I loved it when he blew up the ceiling and revealed he was beneath Applied Sciences.
    -R'as. Wayne Manor Appearance + Hallucination Appearance in TDKR.
    -Joker. Setting the Mob's money ablaze.

    "You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this corrupt city. Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent from the words of Gotham's police commissioner, James Gordon. 'The Batman didn't murder Harvey Dent, he saved my boy then took the blame for Harvey's appalling crimes so that I could, to my shame, build a lie around this fallen idol. I praised the mad man who tried to murder my own child but I can no longer live with my lie. It is time to trust the people of Gotham with the truth and it is time for me to resign.' And do you accept this man's resignation? Do you accept the resignation of all these liars? Of all the corrupt?

    We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you... the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed!

    Step forward those who would serve. For and army will be raised.
    The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure.

    Courts will be convened.

    Spoils will be enjoyed.

    Blood will be shed.

    The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice.

    This great city... it will endure. Gotham will survive!"

    It was hard to keep up with Bane's tumbler speech the first time I saw the film in IMAX. Now I can recite it word for word along with just about every scene in the movie. His dialogue is extremely memorable.

    I actually liked the "you need to lighten up" scene in BB.

    The "lighten up" scene is definitely my favorite Scarecrow moment.

    One of mines is Scarecrows first appearance. Murphy sitting at the table silently with that stone cold look on his face is quite creepy. He sits there for a while listening without blinking once or changing his facial expressions.
