Favorite Indy Villain
 
Who was your favorite villain? Why?

Belloq had class. Nazi villains are generally just Nazis. They have a job to do and they do it, no qualms. Belloq had another side to his character, an undefined code of honor by which he abided.
But above all, Belloq had a cool suit.

As a closet romantic, I'm inclined to agree.

As a villain goes, Mola Ram ranks pretty high up for being creepy, which was very effective for the style of Temple of Doom. Who else has ripped out hearts?

Kill Cavalry 08-30-2006 04:28 PM

True, Mola Ram was the only Indy villain who had any supernatural powers, and that does make him a different kind of evil.

Doc, where is good 'ol Lao? He gets by vote. I know, he did not do much, but I bet there is some cool history between him and Indy.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Belloq. He is the most equal to Indy. After all, just a little nudge and he and Jones would be alike!

What, no Elsa?
Does this mean that you changed your mind about Elsa?

I only had four slots on the poll and didn't know how to get more...sorry, guys.:o

I voted for Belloq, not sure why except for the fact he has the same intelligence as Indy. :)

Doc Savage 08-31-2006 11:46 AM

Belloq's pulling ahead by a long shot.

Garrett 08-31-2006 04:01 PM

I voted for Donovon, but Belloq was a close second.

ClintonHammond 08-31-2006 04:03 PM

I can't believe you left the Nazi Monkey off the list!!

LOL

me either. The nazi monkey would have definitely had my vote.

ClintonHammond 08-31-2006 04:08 PM

All TRUE Indy fans would vote for the Nazi Monkey!

LOL

I agree CH. The monkey rules!!!!!!!!

LovelyLionTamer 09-27-2006 11:29 AM

Well, yes, the monkey was the one villain that I really wanted to see die a painful death..........

But I'd have to say that my favorite villain was Belloq. Just because he had the coolest accent out of all of them. Who can say no to an evil French accent?

:whip:

IndyBuff 09-28-2006 12:00 AM

Belloq is probably my favorite but I thought all three films had great villians.

Last Crusader 10-19-2006 03:49 PM

Donovan is my favourite because he is thoroughly sophisticated and learned. He seems like someone you could trust because he emanates a calm demeanour. But this calmness is also what makes him so sinister.

My second favourite is the Nazi monkey because he is the most genuinely and purely evil character in the movies. Even more so than Mola Ram.

Rumpled Fedora 10-19-2006 04:04 PM

I'm surprised. I'm the only person who likes Toht more than Belloq. :confused:
*shrugs*

Indy Jr. 11-13-2006 02:59 PM

Mola Ram shouted stereotypical lines like "Drop them, Dr. Jones! They will be found. YOU WON'T! Hahaha!" ... Donovan did nothing special and was lacking in screen time. Belloq would have gotten my vote easily, but Toht's two memorable lines make it a contest.

"We are ... (giggles) ... We are not thirsty."
"Now ... what shall we ... talk about?"

I just love those two lines :)

I voted for Toht!:up: He should have had more of the film. Belloq was a close second.

Vlad Dracula 11-14-2006 11:48 PM

Mola Ram was one scary dude. He gets my vote.

Jonesy9906753 07-21-2008 12:11 AM

It is to my belief
 
That Mola Ram is single handedly the best and most evil of all the indy villains in the series,he gave me nightmares when i first watched TOD.He definitley makes Colonel Dr.Irina Spalko look like a wimp, i mean the guy tore a mans heart out and laughed while it was on fire in his hand! And the way he interacts with Indy in the "blood drinking scene" is just classic,Amrish Puri was a great part of the Indy Series.
:whip:

IndyFalco 07-21-2008 03:47 AM

Yea Jonesy,
I second your statement. Mola Ram was intense.
