I haven't seen lotsa Shia, but I heard he was good in American Honey.
I stayed away from young actors on my list. I thought about Kirsten Stewart, Brie Larsson, and Emma Stone.
My favorite of Philip Seymour Hoffman's roles was in The Master. 5 seconds into his screentime I knew that this was something I'd never seen from him before.
Joaquin Pheonix deserves to be on the list too.


Will have to check this out.

Philip Seymour Hoffman!!

 

 

He was amazing. Loved him in Charlie Wilson's War with Hanks.
 

 

And the Talented Mr. Ripley, and Boogie Nights, and pretty much everything else he was in (including one of the Mission Impossibles).

 

One of my favorites- Steve Buscemi

 

His Snickers role was amazing

 

He lives in my neighborhood.  I've seen him around a number of times, including in a restaurant a couple of months ago.

I don't think Pacino or De Niro are in the running, to be honest. They're tremendous in certain roles, but I think their range is lacking. Or maybe I'm just putting too much weight on their work after they got older and stopped caring.

It's not a fun movie, but it's great. Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the finest American artists of our time.

Daniel Day Lewis

Charlize Theron (Monster. She can do serious, she can be thriller, she can be comedy. Range, talent.)

Ralph Fiennes. (his Amon Goeth in Schindler's List is horrifyingly incredible).

Tom Hanks

Robert De Niro 

Kevin Spacey

Christian Bale

Kate Winslet

 

Different eras, but, Charlie Chaplin. Vivien Leigh.

I expected to like it, but for me it was the musical version of Shame; excellent acting, but not a movie I enjoyed watching or would watch again. The ending was unsatisfying in both cases, too.

I expected to like it, too. It's so squarely in my wheelhouse. I'm a drummer, I love obsessed artist stories, I love jazz, but it just didn't connect with me.

What's everyone's favorite cop movie? Not crime. You can still root for the bad guy but the cops have to favor prominently in the movie.

I'd have to say Heat or LA Confidential.

I just finished watching Training Day. I forgot how good it was.

Fun fact: Training Day was written by David Ayer, who would go on to direct Academy Award winner Suicide Squad.

I watched Birdman for the first time earlier tonight. I kinda love it. The style, the cast, the supernatural stuff, the sets! Oh my goodness the sets are fricken gorgeous. I don't think the movie really means anything or has anything original to say.

But holy ###### does Inarritu despise women. And good god is he a crotchety old man with absolutely no insight on the internet/modern culture. Dude's head is soooooo faaaaar up his ass.

It was kinda sad to learn that the Always Sunny episode Charlie Work wasn't an original concept. Oh well.

That's tough. I LOVE the Dirty Harry movies.

Demolition Man?

The Untouchables?


Tombstone?


Oh! Striking Distance! The only thing Sarah Jessica Parker does that I like. Good cast.

Tango and Cash is the ace of that group. Stallone and Kurt Russell. They edge out Stallone and Snipes.

Anthony Hopkins is up there for me.

Also will Smith has seamlessly been able to play multiple roles in his life and nailed them all.


Anyone ever see the "horror" movie contracted on Netflix, Sooo awful, but I love it.... It's kind of in the same vein as twilight, but this movie had to have a budget of like 12 euros, seriously....plus there's a sequel that's equally as bad.

I love Will Smith. But lately he's just starred in duds (suicide squad, collateral beauty). I think the last good movie he was in is Concussion.

Those are 2 very strong contenders. 

 

I would nominate:  Chinatown and Speed.
