Hey you guys out there. What is your favorite Villan, bad guy or Monster. For me, number one has got to be The Joker, from The Dark Knight. It's errie to think that after Heath Ledger played that character died...That is scary in its own right. So what's yours?
Heath Ledger made one of the best movie villains of all time in my humble opinion. I would say the best movie villains for me (and not necessarily in order are)
1. Heath Ledger (The Joker/Dark Knight) Best Supervillain
2. Anthony Hopkins(Hannibal Lecter/Silence of the Lambs,Hannibal,Red Dragon) Best realistic Psychopath
3. Gert Frobe (Auric Goldfinger/Goldfinger) Classic megalomaniac
4. Alan Rickman (Hans Gruber/Die Hard) Just a joy to watch
5. Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger/Nightmare Series) Maybe its just my age but I like my slashers with a sense of humor.
My top 10 would have to be:
!. Amon Goth - German officer in Schindler's List
2. Freddy Krueger- Nightmare on Elm Street
3. Max Cady - Robert De Niro's version in Cape Fear
4. Hannibal Lecter- Silence of the Lambs
5. The Joker - Heath Ledger
6. Pennywise The Clown - IT
7. Michael Myers - Halloween
8. Jigsaw - Saw
9. Pinhead - Hellraiser
10. Damien - The Omen
I think Heath Ledger's Joker is a phenomenal achievement. He played a very intriguing villain that has to be ranked alongside some of the greatest movie villains of all time . My personal favorite is Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean, but practically every bad guy in Lord of the Rings ranks high on my list as well.
Favorite movie monster? I'll say the Kraken from Pirates of the Caribbean. I've always had a fascination with squid and octopus, so this movie monster ranks the highest on my list of monsters.
well first of all, not to sound rude, but it's spelled "VILLAINS" not "VILLANS." anyway, having said that, it's tough for me to say as it really depends on what genre of films we're talking about here. I guess if i had to compile a top 4 list of general movie villains it would read like this.
1. The Joker (The Dark Knight)
2. Daniel Plainview (There Will Be Blood)
3. Mary (Precious)
4. ghostly entity in "Paranormal Activity"
Aizen souske (bleach)
Johny depp (sweeny todd,secret window)
Matt Damon (The Talented Mr. Ripley)
1. Darth Vader (NOT Hayden Christensen!)
2. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins)
3. The Master (John Simm)
4. Max Cady (Robert Mitchum)
5. Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins)
My favorite movie bad guy is, hands down, Darth Vader.
As for movie monsters, that's a tossup between Bruce, that clumsy animatronic star of Jaws (a movie I still can't watch all the way through) and those mutant/alien bat-things in Cloverfield.
My favorite monster has always been Godzilla with Mothra running a close second.
OH well, leave it to me to misspell somethin' especially my favorite word: VILLAIN...there. Now...I agree with all of you folks. That close second for me is Hannibal Lector! So small, so quiet...so prim...so proper, so classy, so able to make you spill your guts (literally and metaphorically) Keepem comin'
Oh, let me NOT fail to mention: Dr. Anton Phibes who will stop at NOTHING to get what he feels is rightfully HIS...HM HM HM HM HM!!!!!
I liked Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men, and Jaoquin Phoenix did well in Gladiator.
And a bunch of other elitist thieves and liars.
Yes, I will admit it, they all scare me
I have to agree that Heath Ledger was hands down the best villain in The Dark Knight.
My favorite "bad guy" would be Al Pacino in The God Father trilogy.
It took way too long to get a Darth Vader reply.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space - creepy AND kinda funny in a creepy way.
This is an easy one for me... The Tall Man from Phantasm, played by Angus Scrimm. I was about six when i first saw that movie and Scrimm scared the life out of me. BOY!!!!
I consider myself a logical, rational person but some of the horror movies that these people come up with calls into question by ability to remain rational and logical. I truly felt that I couldn't be frighten by what was on the big screen that is until I went to Exocist-(Ok it couldn't scare me now but at the time...let me tell).
Ok to address your question this guy they call PinHead in Hell Raisers. This is not someone I want knocking on my front door or back door. If there are any puzzle boxes in my home you'll see them in the trash bin On Fire.
Archibald Cunningham from Rob Roy (Tim Roth)
Percy from The Green Mile (Doug Hutchison). I have never hated a movie character so much.
Alan Rickman in Robinhood prince of thieves. Brilliant pantomime bady, loved him.
Heath Ledger as the Joker, hands down. But some other favs would be Nero from Star Trek, Voldemort from Harry Potter, and Stellan Skarsgard's bad guy in King Arthur.
Anthony Hopkins, Silence of the Lambs
Cruella DeVil 101 Dalmatians
Darth Vader - Star Wars
Gary Busey - Undersiege and Tommy Lee Jones - good actor villain or not
Heath Ledger - really good actor best as villain in Dark Knight
Daniel Day Lewis - Gangs of New York -- Bill the Butcher
Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight)
Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs)
Darth Vader (Star Wars)
