I disagree with #1 - Darth would have been a better choice, IMO.

Khan would never settle for #24. 1-23 better watch their backs.


From hell's heart, I stab at thee. For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee!

Khan deserves higher placement as well, I agree.

I see the Heath Ledger love-a-thon continues, I haven't seen it yet so I'm not completely dismissive and I realize that this is the character here we're talking about and not the actor…

Good to see Anton Chigurh placing so high

Their explanation of #1 is that he's so badass in the books. Well it's a fucking MOVIE villains poll, you morons.

Total bullshit. No villain has engrained himself into the public consciousness as much as Darth Vader. And unlike many others, his story has a full arc, even without the prequels.

As much as I love the books, Voldy as #1 is a joke. The only Potter charcter that should be on that list is Mr Potter (Lionel Barrymore) from It's a Wonderful Life.

Decent list though, with some interesting inclusions that range outside of comic book or action films, although personally I would have chosen Bob Mitchum over Bob DeNiro for Cape Fear (even if that gives him two spots) and Cagney's Cody Jarrett over his Tom Powers.

Also, can we please wait until we've actually seen The Dark Knight to praise Heath Ledger's performance? I can't wait for it and he looks great in the trailers, but it's been silly ever since January.

Nice group of characters, terrible placement. I'd even put Palpatine on there, too - he's a greater villain than Vader, I think.

Palps definitely deserves a spot, but you know they'd never put anything from the prequels on that kind of list.

I think we should bring back that Heroes, Villains tourney we had when NSW comes back.

4.Dr. Hannibal Lector, The Silence Of The Lambs, played by Anthony Hopkins

5.Anton Chigurh, No Country For Old Men, played by Javier Bardem

6.Wicked Witch Of The West, The Wizard Of Oz, Margaret Hamilton

7.Kaiser Soze, The Usual Suspects, played by Kevin Spacey

8.Hans Gruber, Die Hard - played by Alan Rickman

9.Queen, Snow White And The Seven Dwarves

10.The Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot, Batman Returns, played by Danny DeVito

You don't think Sauron deserves a spot?

I'm not a fan of Lord of the Rings. What does Sauron do anyway? Look at everybody with one eye? I'd give it to Gollum if I gave a shit.
