@roger,
Good ones, let us not forget Vincent Price who was campy but scary when I was a kid.

Yep. Especially when he played C.S. Lewis! Too sinister to bear! Mad

@glitterbag,
Hugo Weaving - Agent Smith, The Matrix

I didn't realize how infectious Weaving's portrayal of Agent Smith was until he showed up in The Lord of The Rings by surprise (I hadn't checked the character lists ahead of time) and I half expected the hobbits to run when they saw him. Wink

@glitterbag,
My daughter is a real Harry Potter fan. She would take great exception to what you posted. Snape is not a villain, he's an anti-hero. He tells Harry to take his tear during his death scene, (Snape's memories were contained in his tear, so Harry could work out what to do) Snape was a double agent, just pretending to be bad all along.

Ralph Fiennes was a passable Voldermort, but a brilliant mob boss in In Bruges.

@izzythepush,
I just reserved a library copy of In Bruges for a rewatch. I just love that movie.

Both Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes gave Oscar worthy performances in that film.

I love black humour, and it's got some of the blackest.

You're right, certainly about the Harry potter films, but he has played villainous characters and loopy characters. I'm pretty sure (didn't double check) he was a villian in on of the "Die hard" movies.
