    Didn't read your entire list (too tired) but my favourite from the 90;s has to be Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs, So creepily charming.

    Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone (1990).

    There are so many great ones on the list... but If I'm only allowed to pick one, this would be it.
