    As much as I like drama and artsy foreign films, I gotta go with Darth Vader. And I'm talking full-on David Prowse in a suit, voiced by James Earl Jones, force-choking admirals and commanders left and right in Empire Strikes Back Vader. None of that whiny farmboy Prequel stuff.

    Other faves include William "Bill the Butcher" Cutting from Gangs of New York, Anton Chigurh from No Country For Old Men, Don Logan from Sexy Beast, and I think I'm going to have to include Heath's Joker from Dark Knight in there soon after I see it. Oh, and of course my namesake from Ichi the Killer. So, what's everyone else's faves?

    Freddy Krueger is at the top of my list,followed by Venom. After that there's a bunch...Darth Vader/Anakin,Darth Sidious,Jason Voorhees,Bruce the shark from Jaws,Hannibal Lecter,Godzilla(as a "bad" guy) and Heath Ledger's Joker looks to join that list soon.

    That's one I left out. Since he's the film's protagonist it's hard to classify him. :huh:

    Same goes for Henry (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer) really. But I consider him a Movie Villain nevertheless.

    It does not get any more vile, frightening, disgusting and plain out creepy as this man. He is pure evil, and I shudder at the thought of him.....

    It's....

    Daniel Day-Lewis is an amazing actor and when he needs to be, he can become horrifyingly menacing in certain roles. I can't wait to see There Will Be Blood. :up:

    With his unshaven face, his beady snake-like eyes, his pointy mustache, his utter sadism (shooting an old man in the face and loving it and killing an entire family are prime examples) he just is evil in the flesh. Undoubtedly men like this roamed the Wild West back in the days. And also undoubtedly, none of them was as badass, and menacing as the great, great, great Lee Van Cleef as Angeleyes in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.

    Great choice!

    I've always loved the beginning how he's just smirking at the guy while eating his food before he kills him and his family.

    You won't be disappointed, trust me. I would put Bill Cutting up there, but after seeing There Will Be Blood, Lewis's Daniel Plainview is an even better villain, despite being the protagonist of the film.

    Others...

    Alex (from A Clockwork Orange)
    Patrick Bateman
    Darth Vader
    Anton Chigurh
    Saruman
    Megatron
    Karl Hungus and the Nihilists (The Big Lebowski)
    William Stryker and Magneto
    Ra's al Ghul and The Scarecrow
    Ben Wade and Charlie Prince (3:10 to Yuma)
    Agent Smith
    Hannibal Lector
    Biff
    Darkness (the devil in the film "Legend")
    The General (Pan's Labyrinth)
    Robert Angier (The Prestige)
    Simon Skinner (Hot Fuzz)
    Bad Ash (Army of Darkness)

    Honorary Favorite Villain: Heath Ledger's Joker (agreed, even though I haven't seen the movie yet, I know that I'll love this performance)

    That's what I hear. Unfortunately I live in a small desert town and we don't usually get great movies like that until after a month of wide release or so.

    Ooh, a biggie for me I left out. Also the first movie I really noticed how damn fine an actor Joaquin Phoenix can be.
