Name your favorite villain. Can be from movie, book, comic etc. If someone in a movie has played them, what was your expectation or impression of the portrayal?

Mine include Darth Vader, Lex Luthor and Vincent from Collateral. I also always liked any bad guy played by John Lithgow. As far as the portrayals, you can't beat James Earl Jones voice. I liked Gene Hackman, but I think Lithgow would have been a better Lex. Vincent, even though Cruise is a looney, his character was great.

Another vote for Darth Vader. A close second would have to be Darth Maul:

Thereis no one who can compare to this one for pure, undiluted evil:

Rutger Hauer in The Hitcher.

ETA my favorite Hitcher quote:

John Ryder: Gas stations have cigarettes.
Jim Halsey: What about gas?
John Ryder: I don't need gas.
Jim Halsey: What do you want?
Jim Halsey: What's so funny?
John Ryder: [Stops Laughing] That's what the other guy said.
Jim Halsey: What other guy?
John Ryder: That guy back there, the one we just passed. The guy who picked me up before you did.
Jim Halsey: That was him in there?
John Ryder: Sure it was. He couldn't have walked very far.
Jim Halsey: Why's that?
John Ryder: Because I cut off his legs... and his arms... and his Head. And I'm going to do the same to you.

Especially in The Matrix Revolutions he was the purest form of multiplying evil. Raw negative qualities protrayed flawlessly by Hugo Weaving.
