I think Vader is kind of an overrated villain. There are a lot of Villains I think are better than Vader.

For my money, the best villain in cinema (not counting my boy Leatherface) is either Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest or Amon Goeth from Schindler's List.

heath Joker would put up a good consideration

I seriuosly think that Quanny needs to seek medical/psychological Help for this level of Shill Fan Boy He is reaching.

It it Very Very Sad.


For Him. I personally love to see him devolve in this insanity.

Jesus Christ man!

Vader and Thanos are two different villains, they are as different as night is to day. Their goals and motivations were also completely different.

You need to grow up.

The issue with Vader now is that since they fleshed out his backstory in those terrible prequels the mystery and menace he possessed was lost. As far as cinematic villains are concerned though Anton Chigurh or Hannibal Lecter were better than either Vader or Thanos. Also Tom Berenger as Sgt. Barnes in Platoon.

Well the guy in your Sig is quite possibly the meanest, prettiest, baddest mofo low down around this town.

There are many villains better than Thanos at least with their on screen representation. He was great sure, but best ever? No. I'd still take Vader over Thanos. That being said if we get more information on his motivations in AV4 and he gets a few more movies to shine in then he is in consideration.

In regards to this topic. I would pick all of these Villains ahead of Vader or Thanos

Hannibal Lectar
Agent Smith
Ledger Joker
John Doe from Seven
Voldemort
Commodus from Gladiator


Vader top 10. Thanos top 30 probably. Maybe it is the fact he is CGI and I know what he did will be undone that lessens him for me. Despite my thoughts about how powerful he is, I really did enjoy Thanos.

Hugo Weaving did a phenomenal job and really was one of the only reasons to watch Matrix 2 and 3.

Having said that, Vader > Thanos, but there's far greater cinematic villains than Vader and Thanos; which possess more menace and depth. Several have already been mentioned in this thread alone.

Good point Delph and much as I love Thanos, I'm not sure about Dionne.

My favorite scifi-horror film of all time

Darkstorm Zero
Hmm, I'm not going to get into the whole Thanos vs Darth Vader schtick, but in terms of who is a better villain... Well that depends on the criteria of what makes a villain.

To me, both characters start off as a powerful evil force, and later we see that they have reasons, and can be made to be sympathetic. For Anakin, the PT shows us a lot of what happened to make him out to be the knob helmet wearing menace he was in the OT.

In Thanos, we see his motivations are not self serving in the end. He was motivated by the fear of an old nightmare replaying itself. Thanos lost everything he cared about on his homeworld, even if he was ostracized as an anomaly, all because his people didn't heed his warning and take his advice. He hesitated in going through with his plan due to morality, and in his mind, he paid the price. He wasn't willing to compromise on the safety of any new home he built afterward, and his determination was such that he was willing to sacrifice one he loved and cherished to see it through when he threw Gamorah off the sacrificial cliff to get the Soul Gem. Now, I'm not sure if that is depth building for most people or notm, but at the very least he's not kiddie pool shallow like some villains I could mention... (Doomsday for one had all the depth of a pissed in kiddie pool)

If we're going just by the OT films, Then yeah Vader can be a bit too simple. Its all the expanded material that adds to his character.

Darth Vader Blew up a Planet that killed Billions. That didn't get Magically Undone like what Thanos Did.

Vader is a Better Villain.

Vader is a Better Villain.

Technically, Grand Moff Tarkin gave the order to the Imperial gunners destroy Alderaan.

But that is still insignificant next to the power of the Force.

So Even a one shot like Tarkin is a Better Villain then Thanos.

Didn't really SEE Thanos DO anything. Other then have a really crappy fight with Hulk. Other then that He just stood around and acted Very Purple.

Thanos wasn't Gamora's Dad. He didn't Make Her. He STOLE HER!
So He didn't even MAN UP in that way either.

So Vader has got that one over him has well.

Flyattractor
And Thanos will probably Puss out with his "Guilt Complexe" at the End of Inf War 2.

So yeah. Vader. Better Character ALL Around.

I agree with you Quanster.

CPT Space Bomb
Vader is better to me but both are great. Vader is just iconic and way more beloved than Thanos is. Maybe the generation growing up with the MCU, Thanos will be their "Vader"...but Darth was the original badass cinema villain that set the standard for everyone else to come.

quanchi112

Flyattractor
I could say "Did He" cause all I recall seeing is a few people on Earth Only go Poof. GOTG2 did that much Better then Inf War, but I am sure that Inf War 2 will notice that mistake and fix that problem. Lots of Probs for Inf War to Fix but they have plenty of time to do that....Ahh Rewrites and reshoots. Where would Disney be with out those...

Nope. They didn't do it better then GOTG 2.

Inf War Failed on that part.

That and many others.

Are you retarded? At the end when he pussed out and chose his son. He was too weak to do it. He was lost and found his moral compass again because Luke owns him emotionally. He was right. Luke crushed him and turned him back to the light.

Vader was cool as phuck when he got introduced he is still great but very very overrated.
