Found this on wikipedia while looking up information on the Riddler. Pretty interesting list. Post your thoughts!

As for my personal thoughts on it-

I'm actually quite pleased that Arnold is listed twice... one for Terminator 1 and one for Terminator 2. The T-800 in T1 was absolutely frightening to me as a kid. The T-800 in T2 was one of the most likeable characters ever. Arnold is criticized as an actor a lot (and at times it's deserved) but for those roles he fit perfectly.

I'm also happy to see Jack Nicholson's Joker was #45 on the villain list. Also- who can't agree with Hannibal Lecter being #1 villain?

Thought Hans Gruber should have been a bit higher, always liked him in the Die Hard role.

He was a good father and alwayd did the right thing. The big thing he did was protect his clients life. Atticus was a lawyer, his client was a African American who was on trial for raping a white girl. He was innocent and Atticus was going to prove it in court. One night a Lynch mob was going to hang his client before the trial could be completed. Atticus spent all night sitting outside of the jail to make sure nobody murdered him. Atticus also proved that the girl was lying and his client was let go.

I have not read it for a few years, some of the details are cloudy in my mind but you get the just of it.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am anything by an movie afficionato. I know nothing at all, so I'd probably be listing each and every opponent Rocky ever faced (all the way down to Thunder Lips!), every antagonist from the Bourne trilogy, and Dr. Evil.

I'm hopeless.

I always liked John Lithgow and Christopher Walken as Villains and think that they should have a spot on the list
