Film Guru Lad's Top Movie Villains: Part 5

Here we are in another post from myself as Rad Dingo, this is the last part of the top evildoers that are shown no remorse in capable of doing the bad things that made us hate them in their monstrosity. So these are the last three that will end the top spot of the list and if you haven't known any of these film villains, you be prepared for a shocking surprise of evil treachery.

If you missed the last parts of this list, you can (click here for part one), (part two), (part three) and (part four) to check on the other entries. 

#3. Scar (The Lion King)

Not all villains are live-action,
some of them are animated and
when it comes to family members
who plot against their relatives,
Scar is at the very forefront as
one of these types of villains.
This vain, cunning, deceptive
and power-hungry bad lion has
committed a lot of atrocities 
such as betraying his own
brother and murdering 
him as well as deceiving his 
own nephew that it was his fault 
for doing so, etc. English actor
Jeremy Irons did a terrifying 
ghastly voice of that ferocious 
feline and Scar is just one of the 
few Disney villains that gets away 
with their plans until the very end gets their deserts. Unlike Maleficent who has no intentions to have those qualities like obtain power through stealing one's right to rule or the other.  

#2. The Joker (The Dark Knight)
One of Batman's greatest
enemies, The Joker is an
insane psychopathic  
clown who murders people
and plans to plunge Gotham 
City into anarchy where he
has terrorised. Unlike the
comic's origins, this murderous 
mastermind hasn't had his 
whole skin bleached by the 
use of toxic chemicals. He is 
actually shown to be wearing 
makeup and having scars 
on parts of his mouth to match the character's twisted grin. He has absolutely no redemption and therefore is described as having zero empathy. This definitive portrayal of the character was incredibly disturbing and dark with the acting of the late Heath Ledger. Since this is one of the last roles he performed, and what a massive role for him to have as a swan song. He had received an Oscar win posthumously and I think that I might want to keep this version in the list instead of other interpretations of the Joker. 

#1. Darth Vader (Star Wars 

And finally, the best of all these
movie villains who's in my
opinion is also the best
character of 'Star Wars'.... Darth
Vader. This dark lord of an
estranged father did most of the
things that were evil such as
exterminating the Jedi including
the young-lings, force-choking
minor imperial officers to death
for failure and incompetence, 
inflicting torture on Han Solo 
among other evil deeds. Vader 
is encased in a special suit and helmet that keeps him alive and breathing. Mechanical limbs that enhance his abilities as a result of a fight with his former master Obi-Wan and also sustained burns from lava on the planet Mustafar. Darth Vader is not only the greatest of all the film adversaries, but someone that you don't wanna tick off or doesn't take any apologies.

  1. Can't agree more with your top pick! Darth Vader is the best; no question.

    The Joker also makes my Top 3; Ledger's performance is legendary.

    It has been years since I watched the Lion King, so I can't say much about that.
