Why howdy!

Like it's sister threads we are going to have a little number game, cum hootenanny.

Now the categories in question are thus -


/10
1. Actor – how good do you find the actor portraying the Big Bad to be.
2. Sadism – Polite sadism is must have for all Bond baddies!
3. Villain’s Scheme, a’ka “How I stopped worrying and love the world-threatening plot” - Does the Big Bad’s plot have you quaking in your stylish boots? Too far-fetched? Too mundane? Not enough lasers?
4. Physically Menacing – from Donald Pleasence’s elfish demeanour to Franz Sanchez’s charming yet very dangerous dude, how do you rank the physicality?
5. Dialogue – Now, I don’t know about ya’ll, but I do love the banter between Bond and his arch-nemesis.

Bonus Round!

/5
6. Henchperson – What good is it to have a banging Big Bad without the corresponding Hench-whatever.

/55

You know how this works. Let's get to it, shall we?

Joseph Wiseman as Dr. No...

/10 - out of 10
1. Actor – 9 (Imposing, perverted and intellectual is the Doctor)
2. Sadism – 8 (Having Bond tied up as he calmly wipes his lips - cold as a very very thing)
3. Villain’s Scheme - 8 (Faithful to Fleming. Balance between grounded and fantastical)
4. Physically Menacing – 7 (Not quite up to Sean Connery standards, but Wiseman is imposing. And tall)
5. Dialogue – 10 ("Dr. No: A unique feat of engineering, if I may say so. I designed it myself. The glass is convex, ten inches thick, which accounts for the magnifying effect."
Bond: "Minnows pretending they're whales. Just like you on this island, Dr No.")

Bonus Round!
/5 - out of 5
6. Henchperson – Professor Dent - 3 (If he's a Professor shouldn't a mere Dr. be subservient to him?)

45/55 = 81.81%

Royale's Rank of Rascality
1. Dr. No – 81.81%

    Joseph Wiseman as Dr. No...

    /10 - out of 10
    1. Actor – 9 (And he even convinces me as an evil Chinese man. I love this performance.)
    2. Sadism – 9 (Walks away very calmly while Bond gets beaten up.)
    3. Villain’s Scheme - 9 (Smart, with a long-term vision. I'd be up for it.)
    4. Physically Menacing – 5 (Struggles to match Bond's fighting skills; the difficult layout of the battleground is the only thing providing him with something of a chance.)
    5. Dialogue – 10 (What @royale65 said.)

    Glad to have you on board sir. Ah, yes, a mighty "tip of the hat" to @DarthDimi for perusing this thread, before it went "live", as it were.

    Sir, I may be many things,

    * deadly sexy
    * intelligent beyond the IQ scale
    * a literary genius
    * the perfect son-in-law
    * best - period - singer - period - ever - period

    but one thing I will not be accused of is dropping out of a @royale65 game!

    1. Actor – 8
    2. Sadism – 9 (I don't know exactly what he is trying to do to Honey, but it looks bad! And he prefers to kill people with dragons or (non)poisonous spiders!)
    3. Villain’s Scheme - 10 (One of the better and more realistic ones in the series)
    4. Physically Menacing – 9 (Staggering tall, strong and with metal hands that can squeeze statues. @DarthDimi might be as intelligent as he claims, but I do not understand what he is talking about here... ;) )
    5. Dialogue – 10 (Perfect!)

    Joseph Wiseman as Dr. No...

    /10 - out of 10
    1. Actor – 9 (the yellowface is obvious but his acting is spot-on)
    2. Sadism – 8 (great scene when he departs from the dinner table)
    3. Villain’s Scheme - 9 (not over the top; perhaps a bit forgettable when stacked up against the rest of the series but believably threatening all the same)
    4. Physically Menacing – 8 (tall with those metal hands; definitely intimidating and it's a nice contrast when you see him scrabbling at the end, although I do think he looked a bit clumsy in the melee with Bond himself)
    5. Dialogue – 10 (not only excellent dialogue but excellent, creepy delivery)

    Bonus Round!
    /5 - out of 5
    6. Henchperson – Professor Dent - 3 (Passable but definitely forgettable compared to almost any other henchperson)

    Joseph Wiseman as Dr. No...

    /10 - out of 10

    1. Actor – 10 Very convincing in his mannerisms, in his posture.
    2. Sadism – 9 One of the best Bond torture schemes: let him find his own death struggling through a course. Come on, this is almost the most sadistic villain to Bond in the series!
    3. Villain’s Scheme - 8 For the time very daring and grotesque, however it is a bit dated. Still, playing with the super powers is quite out there.
    4. Physically Menacing – 9 Tall, imposing, artificial hands and pretending it's the most normal thing if you want to succeed in life.
    5. Dialogue – 10 'Unfortunately, I misjudged you. You are just a stupid policeman...' Best insult to Bond ever.

    Bonus Round!

    /5 - out of 5

    6. Henchperson – Professor Dent - 3 (Nasty for sure, but a bit mundaine. Still, goes to show Dr. No uses all possible assets)

    Of course he is.
    Incidentally, @barryt007, I'm still awaiting your monthly payment. Otherwise, I can't guarantee I can keep Justin Bieber off your lawn. ;-)

    Lotte Lenya as Rosa Klebb in From Russia With Love*...

    /10 - out of 10
    1. Actor – 9 (“She looked like the oldest, ugliest whore in the world” with much love, of course)
    2. Sadism – 9 (“it was said that Rosa Klebb would let no torturing take place without her” and ones gets that ominous feeling from Lenya)
    3. Villain’s Scheme - 10 (Added points for layering an extra, uhm, layer of complexity to the plot)
    4. Physically Menacing – 4 (Not her strong suit admittedly, but she had her kicks)
    5. Dialogue – 9 ("He seems fit enough. Have him report to me in Istanbul in 24 hours.." Granted there is not much banter between her and 007, but the stuff that comes out of mouth is rather good)

    Bonus Round!

    1. Rosa Klebb - 83.63%
    2. Dr. No – 81.81%


    * It could have been Kronsteen or Blofeld for this particular round, but Klebb and Grant have more screentime and more thrust on the dynamics on the film.

    With only about three exceptions, my numbers will take a real dive after we leave the '60s.

    I think my top three will be the first three villains of the series. With maybe exceptions being Drax, Sanchez, Zorin and Le Chiffre. Let's see if the numbers betray me.

    There are very few Bond villains that I dislike, but after the '60s the only ones that rise to that upper echelon for me are Scaramanga, Le Chiffre and Silva. Sanchez is close.
