    Glory

    Gone With the Wind

    Amistad

    Shenandoah

    Gettysburg

    are all excellent.

    The historical veracity of the remainder - and their general qualities as movies - are all extremely suspect.

    The most iconic villain, personally, is Darth Vader. He's a excellent villain. He is very evil and such, but he has a intellect. He is very intimidating to appear at. I believe we all do not forget that horrific feeling when we went and noticed "star Wars" in the theater again in 'seventy seven. The scene when the Imperial March performed and Vader walked via the smoke onto Leia's ship amongst all the fallen stormtroopers. He has many different features which are just right for a villain (and a personality most commonly) too. He has a mild humorousness even ("I in finding your lack of faith stressful"). He is a tricky personality with many ideas, ambitions, suggestions, emotions, etc. He desires extra power in order that he can manipulate things. His environment, the people round him, the activities that unfold before him. He wishes vigor so that he can make the whole thing the way he desires them to be. Under the piano black mask and the mechanical swimsuit he is nonetheless the scared boy we see in the prequels. And that fear has led to his great anger. Which led to his hatred for himself, the Jedi, and all people around him. And he regularly suffers. Pushed most effective with the aid of his quest for more energy and dwelling only, for himself. He isn't a best villain. He's *the* villain.
