"If Alan Rickman's portrayal of Hans Gruber isn't one of the best villan roles ever performed, nothing is. Rickman's performance is incredibly believable, revolting, and at the same time, entertaining. It's not Willis that makes this movie: it is Rickman."
Robin Hood: The Complete Series
Robin Hood: The Complete Series
"Keith Allen's portrayal of the Sheriff of Nottingham surely places him as one of the most terrible--and hilarious--villains we've ever seen. Allen makes this role all his own, and is to be enjoyed throughout all 3 seasons of this wonderful show."
Amadeus: Original Soundtrack Recording

"Although disputed by historians, Peter Shazffer's screenplay on the life and death of Mozart not only brings Antonio Salieri to life, but makes him the greatest villain of the age. F. Murrah Abraham won an oscar for best actor in a leading role for the performance."
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
"Lee Van Cleef, playing "the Bad" in this classic movie, ranks as one of the great villains of the screen, with the caveat that here, "the Good" is only dubiously better, and "the Ugly" of equally questionable values."
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan/Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home [Blu-ray]
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan/Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home [Blu-ray]
"Ricardo Montalbán reprises his villainous character from the original 60's series with zest and operatic phrasing that makes him among the outstanding villains of the last few decades. Montalbán's acting alone is worth the purchase price, and almost makes all other characters irrelevant."
Black Adder: Remastered (The Ultimate Edition)
Black Adder: Remastered (The Ultimate Edition)
"In the second season of the classic series "Blackadder," the then future "House M.D." actor, Hugh Laurie, played a great villain, Ludwig the Indestructible. Also appearing is the great villain, the Bishop of Bath and Wells, played by Ronald Lacey."
A Little Princess

"In this lovely story, the headmistress of the boarding school, Miss Minchin (Eleanor Bron) surely must classify as an archetype  villain, particularly as the engaging story unfolds."
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
"Campy and generally silly, the villainous "Dr. Evil" is a much more interesting and engrossing character than Austin Powers himself. Although a caricature and an amalgam of James Bond enemies, Dr. Evil is truly fun to watch."
The Simpsons: Season 6
The Simpsons: Season 6
"Mr. Burns, the wealthy owner of the Springfield Nuclear Plant, is certainly one of the best villainous characters to have been portrayed on TV. His attempts to shut down Springfield through blackmail, the robbing of Springfield Elementary's newly-found oil reserves, and his attempts at making his own "authentic" animal fur clothing are only  few of his dastardly endeavors."
