Best Film Baddie Of All Time?

Thu Apr 13, 2006 11:02 pm

Who is your favourite Film Baddie of All Time?

Mine has to be Alan Rickman as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. He was so good in that role that test audiences cheered him and booed Robin Hood, to the extent that several scenes had to be deleted (some of which are now available on new edition dvds.).

http://www.rickmanistareview.com/robinhood.html




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[the Sheriff has said he'll cut out Robin Hood's heart with a spoon]
Guy of Gisborne: Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?
Sheriff of Nottingham: Because it's DULL, you twit. It'll hurt more.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sheriff of Nottingham: Wait a minute. Robin Hood steals money from my pocket, forcing me to hurt the public, and they love him for it?
[Scribe nods]
Sheriff of Nottingham: That's it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sheriff of Nottingham: [to a wench] You. My room. 10:30 tonight.
Sheriff of Nottingham: [to another wench] You. 10:45... And bring a friend.

Yeah that was a great role he played. He was also good in Die Hard, as was Jeremy Irons in Die Hard 3.

Excellent choice...Karyo is brilliant villian.

I've read that MI:3 villian, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, is a scene stealer, perhaps, capuring the entire film...we'll see when Mission Impossible 3 hits theaters this summer.

I heard there is a scene were Tom Cruise is getting his ass kicked and the test audience was laughing and almost glad to watch it on the big screen!

I plan on seeing the film for that scene alone.  Smile

2nd place, John Lithgow, in Cliffhanger.

What about Jack Nicholson? He played the bad guy in many Batman films and who can forget him screaming in the corridors of the deserted hotel in The Shining?

Robert deNiro has played many baddies, often brilliantly.

Another good baddie was Michael Ironside - menacing in Total Recall.

Would Jack Nicholson as Colonel Nathan Jessep in 'A Few Good Men' count?

Great actor, great character, great movie  thumbsup 

'Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!'

My Baddie of All Time choice would have to be Lee Van Cleef.

He was the classic "Western" baddie especially in roles such as Sergio Leone's classic... The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Because Don Corleone is not meant to be a villain. While he may engage in an unsavory business, he and Michael are both meant to be sympathetic characters. Although you know that what the Corleone's do is illegal and immoral, you can't help but feel sorry for the guy.

I'd have to do a top 5 for best film villains:

1. Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, Red Dragon)
2. Ralph Fiennes as Amon Goeth (Schindler's List)
3. Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates (Psycho)
4. Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrence (The Shining)
5. Robert DeNiro as Max Cady (Cape Fear)

Joe Pesci in Casino. Played the part of Nicky Santoro perfectly. I think that Robert DeNiro's character was the protaganist in that movie, not JP's. Probably as one of my favorite roles of any film, and my favorite film as well.

I don't think we can add Eli Wallach for that film, but he should get a nod for his role in "The Magnificent Seven"

Quoting Garnetpalmetto (Reply 32):
Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrence (The Shining)
Ralph Fiennes as Amon Goeth (Schindler's List)
