    I like Robert DeNiro. He's very versatile, he's had some great roles over the years, and he's stepped up to every one of them, and done a great job IMO.

    I like Jack Nicholson too, just 'cause of the craziness he brings with him. :D

    Who's your favorite, and why?

    Johnny Depp. There's NOTHING he can't act, I'm convinced.
    + he's damn sexy and I have a man crush on him.

    Samuel L. Jackson is pretty badass.

    Think SWAT and Star Wars.

    it's sad when the best acting done in an movie is by a computer generated character (yoda).... :rollno:

    "yes they deserve to die, and I hope they burn in hell!"

    On the whole Sam Jackson rocks! he's just made a few mistakes with his recent movie selections.

    Wait baker... are you mocking me or the movies I like?

    And I swear to god if you're mocking Star Wars i'm going to force push you off of this flat earth.

    DISCLAIMER: Most of that was sarcasm, but I would like to know the answer to that first question.

    Neither really. But i think it's fact that S.W.A.T was terrible...

    Star Wars, on the other hand, maybe its cause I'm not a die hard fan and haven't seen any of the episode's more than once or read any of the books and went into RotS expecting something good but I found the script writing terrible, the acting terrible, some plot holes, and just an overall feeling of disapointment and nothing great in the movie. It was cool in the end how they went all back to the old school design and set and everything but it was out of place with the rest of the movie I felt... But this should be in the RotS thread, not here. So to conclude I mock neither you nor your taste in movies.

    Into exile I must go, failed I have.

    Paul Giamatti makes every movie I've seen him in better, even the terrible ones. I might see Cinderella Man just for him.

    Ed Norton is good as well.
     
  15. IIRC, alot of people on here are die-hard Chris Walken fans.

    My office looks out at Russel Crowe's house.

    IMO he is a tool.
     

  20. WAIT!.........Your A GUY!?@??!?!?!?!?!?! ........... :eek: No offense, but I had the idea that you were a chick! sorry




    For me , its Jack Nicholson all the way.

    Walken is a close second.
