Online Film Critics Society Vote For Greatest Screen Villain

We were not consulted:

    The Online Film Critics Society (OFCS), the international association of the leading Internet-based cinema journalists, is sharing its love with the character we’re supposed to hate.

    The OFCS has announced its new list celebrating the Top 100 Villains of All Time and the greatest screen villain of all time, according to the 132 members of the OFCS, is Darth Vader played by David Prowse and voiced by James Earl Jones in the original “Star Wars” trilogy.

    Following Darth Vader in the Top 10 sector of the Villains list is Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs,” Anthony Perkins’ Norman Bates in “Psycho,” Alan Rickman’s Hans Gruber in “Die Hard,” Dennis Hopper’s Frank Booth in “Blue Velvet,” Robert Mitchum’s Rev. Harry Powell in “The Night of the Hunter,” Douglas Rain as the voice of the HAL 9000 in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West in “The Wizard of Oz,” Max Schreck as Graf Orlock in “Nosferatu,” and Ricardo Montalban as Khan Noonien Singh in “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.”

    The complete list of the Online Film Critics Society’s Top 100 Villains can be found online at www.ofcs.org.

To my thinking, Darth is a little too robotic and impersonal to be the greatest film villain. What do my fellow critics say about this?
