I'd have to say the guy from the "Saw" movies. The guy who concocts all those horrible tortures. He's wicked to extreme and would sneak up to and trap the terminator guy before he even knew what happened.
Definitely Sean Bean from The Hitcher. Jack Nicholson in The Shining. The killer from Untraceable. And the chick that plays Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix...she was insane looking.
The late Heath Ledger's role as " The Joker" in the latest Batman's movie, "The Dark Knight" is superb and I think he deserved to be nominated as "Best Actor" or at least "Best Male Supporting Actor" in the coming 2008 Oscar contest. It will require a longer star search for an actor to reprise the role of The Joker as good as Heath in the next Batman movies to come in the future. This is solely my personal opinion for such a fine actor who died prematurely before reaching his highest peak in his acting career.
That's what they said about Jack Nicholson's Joker, yet Heath completely wiped him off the table. The Dark Knight gained a momentum when Heath Ledger passed (RIP) and that secured its position as the most commercially successful movie.
I am the one guy in North America who hasn't seen Dark Knight yet (just got back from my honeymoon in the Caribbean - and yes they had it playing there but I wasn't there for movies so...), so I would have to go with Kevin Spacey from the movie "The Usual Suspects."
Really hard to choose just one though - good forum topic, BTW.
I would have to go with the villain in "NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN". I think the villain was at least realistic. Half the time hollywood makes phony movies, with phony villains (with the exception of the greats like Scorcese, Tarantino,etc). The thing also about the villain in NCFOM is that you could almost connect with him. I mean, if I ever was a killer I would like to be like that guy. I know it sounds crazy, but its true. One who never makes a big deal about any kill. Always calm as hell, too. So calm, is like he's operating under a spell of serenity or what not. The guy tosses coins on whether or not to let a guy live - that guy kills me everytime. Big ups to Coen brothers. No suprise, their winning Best Director Award and the movie winning Best Picture at the Oscars.
Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Hanibal Lector is, in my opinion, the best screen villain, ever. Every beat, every nuance was played to perfection with just enough humanity added to the character that you could never completely hate or fear him although that is exactly how you SHOULD have felt about him.
I have to go with Tyler Durden from Fight Club. Nothing is as badass as creating underground terrorist cells, while not even existing. He would beat any other villain in a fist fight, hands down (or atleast the narrator would).
For years and years.. when I stayed in hotels I was so SCARED to venture out of my room late at night to go to the ice machine.. and don't let them put me in a room by any storage or steps.. I would FREAK!
You can't have heroes without villains, so who are the best at being bad? Here's a few starters:HAL 9000 (2001: A Space Odyssey)Norman Bates (Psycho)Daniel Plainview (There Will Be Blood)Amon Goeth (Schindler's...
