It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 98

May 8, 2012

Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!!

What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:

“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!

Last week’s poll, Choose Your Avenger has now closed with 27 votes. Be sure to visit and see the #1 choice of The Avengers HERE.

I wish to thank you everyone that voted in last week’s polls, shared it with others, and made it fun with your comments!

In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “The Best of the Bad”, takes a look at the greatest movie villains.

Before I went to publish this poll today, I wandered over to Fog’s Movie Reviews and found that he had his discussion thread today that mirrored what I was putting together for this edition of Time To Vote Tuesday! (Ya know what they say about “great minds!”) So, I added a few options to today’s poll after reading some of the comments in the discussion thread. Be sure to visit his page and join in the discussion on his fun post entitled: Tossin’ It Out There: Who do you think is the greatest villain of all time.

You can call this post- “Tossin’ It Out There: Who do you think is the greatest villain of all time, part 1B.” 😀

You know them, you love them, you love to hate them…Movie Villains! Some just get under your skin for their atrocious acts, some are the epitome of what you wish you could be…perhaps minus the evil. Some are just misunderstood and lost souls. Others, well, they are just baddies.

Today I ask you to join in the debate and discuss:

The poll closes on 5-15-12 and the results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

    Tony Montana? A Villain?

    You’ve misread that film, my friend…. 😀

    Meanwhile, from the list above I chose Lecter and Ledger ’cause &#%$ Darth Vader. LOL


    • May 8, 2012 10:23 am

      Yep, Tony Montana is on the list! 🙂 I wasn’t going to include him, but then I saw him on about 3-4 other lists of 50-100 villains in movies and said, eh…why not?! So, yep, he’s present and accounted for! ha.

      haha. and I love your sentiment towards Darth Vader! LOL. Good choice with Lecter and Ledger!


  2. May 8, 2012 9:51 am

    Darth Vader and the Scar from The Lion King for me.

    All the best bad guys are Brits.


    • May 8, 2012 10:21 am

      Yeah because we are the worst or best haha 😀


    • May 8, 2012 10:24 am

      haha. I was going to say something about that but Tim summed it up well! 🙂

      Thanks for voting today.


    • May 8, 2012 11:29 am

      Yeah. There’s a reason for that. LOL

    Ok, I voted for Gruber and The Joker, as you know I have a soft spot for Alan Rickman. Ominous but elegant and sophisticated.

    P.S. Inspired by you, I’ve got a poll for today too 🙂


    • May 8, 2012 10:25 am

      Hooray! I included Rickman JUST for you. Believe it or not, he’s ranked pretty low on numerous lists of great villains. But, I think he’s a pretty awesome one myself.

      I can’t wait to see the poll you put up. Thanks for voting today!


      • May 8, 2012 10:58 am

        Ahah, well there’s a ton of great competition here. I’d have voted for Amon Goeth as well but he’s just not the kind of villain I ‘enjoy’ watching. Great poll, as always!

    I picked Hans but really would’ve picked any Alan Rickman Villain!!!! He is the best! He even made Perfume watchable.


    • May 8, 2012 6:46 pm

      Hi Samantha. Thanks for voting today! Yes, Rickman is great in just about everything isnt he?


  5. May 8, 2012 1:36 pm

    I went with Goeth and Gruber but if I had a third choice I’d have the T1000


    • May 8, 2012 6:48 pm

      Ooh yes. the T1000 is an excellent choice. Thanks for voting today Pete. Appreciate it.

    Willem Dafoe as Bobby Peru WILD AT HEART.
    Daniel Day-Lewis Bill the Butcher GANGS OF NEW YORK.


    • May 8, 2012 6:52 pm

      Mark, welcome to the page. Thanks for visiting and voting today.

      You picked some good choices here. Love the “Bill the Butcher” choice!

    Angel Eyes from the Good, the Bad and the Ugly!


    • May 8, 2012 6:53 pm

    Hi, Terrence and company:

    I went with Allan Rickman’s Hans Gruber. Also chose ‘Other’. In the form of Robert Mitchum’s double header of Reverend Harry Powell in ‘The Night of the Hunter’ and
    Max Cady in ‘Cape Fear’.

    Honorable mention goes to Sydney Greenstreet in ‘The Maltese Falcon’.


    • May 8, 2012 11:07 pm

      Rev. Powell is a fantastic choice, Jack! Wish I would have thought of that myself.


      • May 9, 2012 10:13 am

        Jack, I agree with what Eric said here and wish I would’ve put him on the poll. Thanks


  9. May 8, 2012 11:08 pm

    I went with Norman Bates and Amon Goeth. Shocked to see I was only the second vote for Mr. Bates.


    • May 9, 2012 10:13 am

      admittedly I am surprised that you are #2 for Bates as well. hmm. Thanks for voting sir.


  10. May 9, 2012 3:03 am

    I went with Hans, just because Rickman was super cool!! And sporting a special beard too!


    • May 9, 2012 10:12 am

      haha. 10 extra vote points just for mentioning the beard! 🙂


  11. May 9, 2012 4:47 am

    Amon Goeth and Hans Gruber for me. I remember last year when I ran Battle of the Bad Guys that Darth Vader easily beat everyone I put against him…


    • May 9, 2012 10:12 am

      I remember that too Nostra! yeah, not so much this time around, huh? Interesting. Thanks for voting today.

    This one was close for me but I went with Mr. Lecter over Mr. Joker.


    • May 9, 2012 10:44 am

      ooh. well, you could’ve chosen 2! 🙂 But i like the fact that you emphasize Lecter’s win over the Joker! Thanks for voting sir!


  13. May 10, 2012 3:16 pm

    Has to be the Joker. He’s the best villain ever! Not just in the films but in cartoons, comics… everything!!!


    • May 11, 2012 9:45 am

      It looks as if the majority of voters agree with you.

    Jonathan Pryce is my favorite villian in Something Wicked this Way Comes. Spooky but my all time favorite is Hannibal the Cannibal. Oh yeah.. get some!


    • May 15, 2012 10:05 am

      Sherry! Thanks for voting on this week’s poll. Hannibal the Cannibal is quite the creepy villain is he not. “Hello Clarise…..”


  15. May 14, 2012 10:35 pm

    Toughest one in a while, T! I went with Vader and Goeth but easily could have gone several other ways.


    • May 15, 2012 10:05 am

      Thanks for braving it my friend. I really thought that Vader would have more votes to be honest with ya.
