I'm not particularly a fan of Dickens either but I like A Christmas Carol and most of its many adaptations.

I also like Oliver!

I actually don't mind Oliver. It has some good songs. You just have to remind yourself it's not related to Dickens.

Oliver Reed's Bill Sikes is one of the greatest movie villains imho

Until you mentioned Reed and his role, I had forgotten I had seen Oliver. He was indeed pure villain.

I would offer Jack Palance in Shane -- for consideration. As cool evil, he nailed it. He was nominated for, and should have won, Best Supporting Actor.

I’m kinda partial to Wesley Snipes in Demolition Man myself. You can tell he had so much fun in that role, he’d have done it for free. Although the rest of the movie is your standard action flick fare, I never get tired of Simon Phoenix for just that reason.

As for “cool evil,” I feel obligated to add Hans Gruber from Die Hard to the list. This role made Alan Rickman a household name.

Some villains are not obvious.

I am an exceptional thief, Mrs. McClane. And since I'm moving up to kidnapping, you should be more polite.

A man like Ringo has got a great big hole, right in the middle of him. He can never kill enough, or steal enough, or inflict enough pain to ever fill it.

You did, when you murdered my boss
