Hi Garrett,

3 Norman Bates
5 Hans Gruber (Die Hard0
6 Frank Booth (Blue Velvet)
7 Reverend Henry Powell (Night of the Hunter)
8 Hal 9000

So what happened to Number 4, and did Hannibal Lecter (or Lecktor) change his first name by Deepol?! :D

I dont think people care about Darth Vader anymore sinse Darth Maul came along. I can understand the kids being like this but not the adults.

I am sounding like Simon Peg now so I will shut up!

Hal wasnt faulty. It was given a conflicting set of instructions and tried to carry them out.

I have to question why the programmer didnt hardwire Asimov's three laws of robotics into Hal's silicon though, bit of an oversight by Clarke there (of course the book and film would be a lot more boring if that was in there! It's a pity 3001 sucked).

Darth Vader still rules... watched a bit of empire last night "Apology accepted Admiral!" even Bond villians can't pull off a line like that.

Hi James
I’m pretty sure I’ve heard that line used by a villain in similar circumstances.
Anyone know it?

82 Was Catwoman realy a villain?
40 I also wonder about Mr Potter he was not a very nice person but does that make you a villain.
45 Glad to see Auric in the charts, shame he was not higher.

Did it miss Jase’s Blofeld off.
