Gallery of the Day - Movie Villains

I'm always a little bored by the fact these lists always have a VIP parking spot for Darth Vader. I'd replace R'as al Ghul with the Joker too, though I get that he's there because, in a way, he's the villain of the whole trilogy. Other than that, OK list. Nice to see Lo Pan and the T-whatever, for a change.

The biggest disapointment for me was that there was no Zorg...

Should've replaced Darth Vader with Princess Leia, she was the one who lead a violent uprising because the galaxy being peaceful offended her or something and then didn't care when Alderaan was threatened with destruction. I've been more emotional over realizing dinner is over than she was when faced with the destruction of her planet that she could've prevented.

Not to mention that Sauron looked like a giant enflamed faj in the sky.

What about Wesley Snipes in Demolition man? Or Clarence Bodecker in Robocop?
