He didn’t get the best part. Nick Frost stole the film either him or Rhys Ifans.
Poor old Hank, and the bikers shoot-out scene.
PSH was my favourite, but I greatly admire:
Daniel Day Lewis
Acting chops ?
All great but I’d put ..
And the BB guy at the top!!!!!
After seeing Synecdoche, NY again I would place Philip Seymour Hoffman one left foot ahead of the next in line. The next ones would be too far from home to list.
Each to their own but I'm genuinely bemused at Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt being mentioned in this thread.
What would your choice be?
Daniel Day-Lewis or Cate Blanchett.
Some other great ones have already been mentioned. Pleasantly surprised to see Mark Ruffalo.
Not sure the following have been mentioned, but all stand out actors IMO:
Gary Oldman, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Michael Fassbender, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Connelly.
Wow, four pages and everyone is wrong.
The right answer: Tom Hardy
The guy made a movie (Locke) that consisted entirely of him driving down the freeway, talking on the phone about a construction project -- and it was riveting.
His first film was Black Hawk Down, in 2001 -- making him truly an actor of the 21st Century.
Here's a cheesy YouTube video that highlights some of his work. Seriously, he's the best.
Yeah ..Locke ( not Lost) is his best film imo.
The new James Bond ...they say!!!
Was my choice.
Daniel Brühl is a fantastic actor in my book. Loved him in "The White Sound" as well as in "Rush", among others.
Been mentioned a few times in this thread already but we lost a great and versatile actor in Philip Seymour Hoffman. RIP
Gene Hackman. He made acting look so easy. Can't argue about Duval either.
In his fifties ?
That’s a good assessment.
Christian Bale is my #1 for film
Tilda Swinton is such a unique actor. There is good reason she is nominated so many times. Her look is so atypical and she brings this unnerving, precise energy to her acting. Her roles seem a little one note now - the unusual semi-villain we saw in Dr. Strange as one example - but I like her acting everytime.
Never heard of this movie before reading posts here today. It's like America's outlawed comedy.
Amazon reviews seeming to shred U.S. version in favor of UK, which seems likely to be the case... Figuring poster who wrote "it's utter crap" viewed U.S. version.
Anyone watch both & have opinions? The trailer looks VG+++ (?) And, yeah, shocked that it's based on a real-story!
Think the uk version The Boat That Rocked ( pirate radio) is excellent myself.
If you like ...sixties music ..
Nick Frost is hilarious in it imo.
I’ve watched it a few times..
Meryl Streep still for me.
Kate Winslett second fav.
And i really like Emma Stone.
No new fav guys.
De Niro,Pacino,Dustin Hoffman...they were my fav actors but no good films from them in the 21st Century
The Ancient One.
Realise she’s originally playing a guys part( in the comics he was bald)..just wish her look had been like her role in Jim Jarmusch’s Zombie film. Samurai sword suited her.
Really like Emma Stone in Paper Man(2009).
Oh! And also the magic Woody Allen film.
