Bale sold me in Vice. Thinking that hes a Brit, and seeing what he did with Chaney was really incredible.

We can also add Matthew McConaughey to the list

Rescue Dawn is my favorite Christian Bale film. Kudos to Steve Zahn taking on a serious role too.

I think both are great, but a step down from Pitt/DiCaprio/DDL.

I've never watched a movie where either completely convinced me they were not themselves acting to an extent. Both are compelling, have awesome movie choices, and know their range/ stick with it.

Neither are as ranged as the tier 1 people IMO. Both are still all time greats.


I really like DDL. I thought he chewed Lincoln. There Will Be Blood is my favorite movie of all time and I think he’s magnificent in that one.

Pitt is 1, and Leo and DDL are 2a/2b for me though. This is from a house that watches Legends of the Fall and A River Runs Through It a couple times a year. Pitt just extends a little further into the “real/raw” - at the right time in his career, too - than the other two, which I like. Leo has that but it was so early in his career that there’s just not the depth available. Pitt was a little older, yet still was able to show that sort of naiveness.

Denzel is RIGHT behind them for me. He’s so damn powerful. Does it get any better than Glory? And I thought he was actually damn good in that recent one Fences. But he’s always “Denzel”, which is why I put him just behind the others.

Hanks is great, just doesn’t always do it for me. He’s in a tier below Denzel, IMO.

Besides the first Pirates, I’m not really a fan of Depp. Even his earlier stuff.

There’s a group of guys like Cruise, Will Smith, Downey Jr, Pacino, and Clooney - who I always love (not as good as Denzel IMO), but who are really only ever themselves (besides Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder lmao)

Solid post.

From the older generation, I've always liked Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood and Gene Hackman. Hackman is probably the best pure actor of those three, but all three were Hollywood Stars. The first movie I truly remember Hackman shining in was Bonnie & Clyde with Warren Beatty & Faye Dunaway.

Speaking of, recently started going back watching "the greats" from yesteryear ... 30's-70's that were completely off my radar.
The writing and characters on some of these were magnificent.

It's due to a combo of Bale and Matthew McConaughey (as stated above .. we need to add him to the list).

Gerard Butler is also strong in this

I wanted to like that movie, but the way it was filmed...most of the scenes were so dark I couldn't tell what was happening. I'm still waiting for a mind-blowing dragon movie in my lifetime.

Longshot .

I like Seth Rogen as an actor. This was awful. The weird storylines are just too much for me. Wasnt a fan.

Longshots issue was it tried to turn a pot story out of a political story. Rogan's character is getting old

How can you not like This is the End.

Sometimes a man just has his vices PP. Yours happens to be insulting your favorite football team on the internet.

What, the ****?

So many thoughts.
- clearly a money grab huh? The Wachowski Brot- err sisters have made mostly crap since The Matrix and are going back to the well of their one great idea
- didn’t Neo and Trinity die? Too old for prequel type stuff. I read that a Bladerunner 2049 type of plot would be the best route. Don’t totally agree but I’m also skeptical one Wachowski Br- err sister can make something great and worthy of existing at this point
- no Morpheus? he is the glue. I don’t see Keanu having the way about him to be the new Morpheus
- it scares me when a creator is adamant about having wrapped up a work or series of works only to revisit them 15-20 years later after a bunch of work that wasn’t nearly as inspired. Eminem MMLP2 comes to mind.
- some heavyhanded commentary on “millennials” and social media use would be horrible. Hope they don’t go this way. The cold open is Neo walking through NYC with his chin held high. Only to be surrounded by a bunch of people looking down at phones. Rob Zombie music starts blasting and of course he’s wearing a 3/4 length leather jacket
- I watched The Matrix recently. Some holds up, some is incredibly bad. Imo some of the best parts are pre red/blue pill. There’s an air of mystery. Neo is basically an automaton in society who is obsessed with this conspiracy theory “thing” around Morpheus. Neo’s dealings with shady malware buying people. Film one should’ve been pre-pill, the final scene being the offering of the pills and the reflection in Morpheus’s glasses after some climax about avoiding agents. Film 2 should’ve been post Pill. Just redo 3 from scratch.
- there’s really no work to “ruin” after the sequels. So let’s do this!

I disagree; I think that would be a decent route.

I love the first one but the second and third are garbage.

As usual; just a money grab.

I didn't like the 2nd or 3rd either.

The 3rd was awful and I almost didn't want to finish watching due to boredom.

I can't imagine a 4th being good.

Plus, Reeves has basically been playing Neo in Wick.

The Matrix? less now than I did before. But yes, I think it's a B on an A-F scale after taking everything into consideration.

No. I meant Dumb and Dumber.

Not a fan of 90s slap stick comedies anymore. I liked some back then, but none of them hold up at all IMO

Dumb and Dumber may be the only funny film that exists period. Most comedies are just trash.
