This is something I always seem to bring up when Leonardo DiCaprio has a movie coming out.

Who is the actor or actress you don't like but end up seeing their movie('s) for some reason or another?

for me its Tom Cruise, He always seems to play a roll 1 way, but until Interview with the Vampire, I didn't think he could act.

Leo also falls in that category, I think his best roll was "What is eating Gilbert Grape?" were he was the handicapped brother.

I forgot about Nic Cage, my new #1. POS actor. I have never saw a movie of his where I said, I am glad I watched that. Any decent movie him in it had strong supporting actors, or had stuff blown up aka man factor. BTW, my GF made me watch Sonny last week, directed by Cage with a scene with him. *** is all I could muster.

Raising Arizona was a great movie, and Cage did a very good job in it.

Nic Cage I would have to say anything big budget is just crappy, but I usually say it just bad writing. In the early 90's I thought he was probably the best actor coming up. Red Rock West was what brought me to that point. Now I can't stand what they seem to put him into.

Yep, he did a great job in that one. Also, I thought he did a very good job in Leaving Las Vegas. After that his work is so-so IMO. I also hated DiCaprio for the longest time, but now I respect him.

I don't care for Emma Stone (sorry, but I think she is overrated), really dislike Meg Ryan and Sean Young, and I hate to admit it, but De Niro is creeping into the hate category even though I loved his earlier work.

DiCaprio is usually pretty good.

Earlier today I was trying to decide whether Tom Cruise could actually act or not, as every role he plays is seemingly the same, not was my final decision. I seem to dislike most actors, especially the more recently popular actors. Though, I am rarely interested in seeing any films that are released other than documentaries or the occasional indie film.

How can you watch Inglorious Basterds and get the same out of Pitt's performance as Ocean's 11??

I am so damn confused right now.


I spent more than a month with a guy I used to work the line with, every day, hotly debating who the most versatile actor alive is. We changed each other's minds on many actors, but we were both surprised that we had to concede it is Brad Pitt. He's all over the map!

Jane Fonda. A traitorous ho and, IMO, she has achieved most of her fame riding on the coattails of much better actors in supporting roles. Want examples? How about Donald Sutherland in Klute, and her father and Katherine Hepburn in On Golden Pond for starters? The fluttering eyelash closeup thing that she does makes me want to blow chunks. There are many actors to who are useless pieces of dung as human beings but can actually act, like Sean Penn. You really have to be a completely out of control a-hole or drug addict who can't be bonded in Hollyweird for people not to want to work with you even if you arguably have talent. Two of the more obvious examples of psychos/d-bags who fall into that category are Sean Young and Micky Rourke, although Mel Gibson has tried hard at times to join that club.

I try to judge actors based on movies where the script is good. Even Olivier did crap like Inchon and Clash of the Titans when he wanted a paycheck late in his career. DiCaprio has impressed me in the stuff that he has done with guys like Scorcese. Guys like Affleck and Clooney have gotten to the point where they can be more careful about the roles that they take and it has paid off. I thought that Affleck did a great job as both actor and director with The Town.
I have come to the conclusion that after years of actresses bitching about not getting good roles, a disproportionate number of the rising young stars in Hollywood today are of the female persuasion and they are being given good material. Jennifer Lawrence may have just put herself in the lead of that pack.
The filmmaker that irritates me to no end is James Cameron. He is an absolute genius at putting mind blowing images on the silver screen, but he apparently took the same mail order film school course in ham fisted dialogue writing as George Lucas. The only good thing about Lucas is that he tends not to be so preachy. If I have to sit through one more film where a billionaire like Cameron shows me cartoonish representations of the evil, idle rich in eyeliner like in Titanic or heartless corporate types looking to screw over everyone for a dollar like in Avatar and Aliens, I may be forced to swallow my own tongue and choke myself to death in the middle of the theater.

That was good (and depressing). I'm not so hard on Nick Cage; I'm harder on Hollywood putting out so many crap movies. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Nick Cage is a great actor -- mediocre at best, but I didn't mind him in some roles: Bad Lieutenant, Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas, Raising Arizona, and Weather Man are some.

With that said, I can't stand Nathan Lane. In all his movies he acts like he is doing stage theater. He's some caricatured, gesticulating turd.

Don't care enough about any of them to hate em but Cruise is especially non-endearing. If I had any artistic ability at all I would do a caricature of short man hitchhiking with a Reacher toothbrush in back pocket, along with a hair dryer, cell phone(s), color glossy pictures of himself and maybe even a cast of sycophants and bimbo de jour following in a bus.

One thing that a thread like this always brings to my mind is "There is no accounting for taste." ;)

Tom Cruise! I didn't like him before but I like him less now that he took the role of Jack Reacher. I have read all the books and to think that a little twerp like Tommy Cruise can fill those shoes is just a JOKE! He did prove in Last Samurai that he really can act though. Also Collateral.

Nic Cage? Meh. To me he was a one trick pony. The role of his career was in 'Leaving Las Vegas', well after the farce that was 'Raising Arizona'. 'LLV' was a fantastic movie and acting job, too bad he's been riding on it's coat tails and not pulling it off ever since.

I'd agree with Megan Fox too. All I ever think of is what I could do with/to her holes whenever I see her in a movie. :eek2:
