Apologies if this has been done before - I am new to these forums and learning my way around! I like this place!

So who is your favorite movie villain and why?

My answer is Loki. He is a strong, mischevious character but has a lot of willpower to make movie audiences like him (in my opinion).

Ah, good question! And welcome 'n stuff.

Huh. Villain. I like multidimensional characters, particularly those who don't seem evil at the outset or purely evil.

One villain who still looms large is the rather realistic Steff in Pretty in Pink. I realize it's a John Hughes film, etc. (and also that he's essentially a villain from the word go, thereby negating what I just said about villains), but Steff is a rich, arrogant, petty bastard. He hates pretty much everyone and everything, and wipes them all off his designer Italian leather shoes. Seeing him get his comeuppance, when Blaine tells him off (and even when Ducky unsuccessfully attacks him in a fit of rage) is pretty satisfying.

I also loved Pontius Pilate from Life of Brian.

Some may consider Bronson, in Deathwish, a hero. I viewed him pretty dimly and did all I could to keep my children from seeing the movie. (Which, in the day of the VHS tape, that proved a failure)

He's an antihero or vigilante rather then an actual hero. Not a villain and definitely not a hero.

@tsarstepan,
To me it's villainous to fish for creeps to shoot, making citizens' due rights irrellevant.

You know you've lost it with Hollywood California when you find yourself rooting for the outright villains in their stupid movies generally, but my favorite is Daniel Day Louis' character in Gangs of New York. I was rooting for Bill all the way.

Other candidates would have to include the multilingual colonel in Inglorious Bastards and Hannibal Lector.

@NocturnalMistress,
Either Hades from Hercules or Lord Voldemort from, obviously, Harry Potter.

Hades is so funny! "Zuesy, I'm hooome!"

And Voldemort has so many sides to his story which makes him a really interesting character. He's also scary looking, which you almost always have to be if you're a villain, in my opinion.

Welcome to able2know! I'm new here too. This is the first question I've answered so far.

@CunningFox,
Voldermort isn't Ralph Fiennes' greatest screen villain. This is.
