Before we go on, I have to mention a few names that were not even considered by anyone at all out of those who voted:
- T-1000 – Terminator 2 – Robert Patrick
- Blofeld – James Bond – Anyone of them
- Captain Hadley – The Shawshank Redemption – Clancy Brown
- Doc Ock – Spiderman 2 – Alfred Molina
- Messala – Ben Hur – Stephen Boyd
- Baron Vladimir Harkonnen – Dune – Kenneth McMillan
- Ozymandias – Watchmen – Matthew Goode
- Mr. Potter – It’s a Wonderful Life – Lionel Barrymore
- Asami Yamazaki – Audition – Eihi Shiina
This is just to name a few. I did think it was interesting that apart from Thanos and Joker, no comic-book villains were mentioned.
So here it is, your Top Ten Best Movie Bad Guys. Now, I haven’t gone into any details about the baddies, I haven’t examined their inner workings, it’s just the countdown, so here you go.
We have set this as a premiere on YouTube at 12pm Saturday UK time, that’s 6 am for the US, so you might have to wait a little while, so you can discuss some of the people above in the meantime.
Well, what did you think? Happy? Sad? Angry?
