(whether you meant it or not).
no... I did not mean it...I meant it as said...I didn't realize that those words meant anything else but as said...no pun intended...really. It's just a saying I like to use when I am impressed with an outcome.
Coma was his first big film....Cost $4 million and made $50 million
And if its not that, then it is the China Syndrome
I identify with him in the scene at the beginning of Jewel in the Nile.
He's lounging on his yacht in the marina. Kathleen Turner says to him (something like).
"Don't forget we're going to that reception tonight."
"That's not 'til next Thursday!"
"This is next Thursday!"
Fincher at the top of his game. MD unravels.
Definitely The China Syndrome!
my second would be the Game...
Clint Eastwood and Michael Douglas are by far two of my favorite actors. I've heard a lot of people over the years say something along the lines of that Eastwood may not be the greatest actor but he's their favorite. He may often being playing some aspect of himself rather than a character he has no connection to. I think a lot of the same is true for Michael Douglas. I'm not sure I'd put either guy up as the best actor of his generation but they would both be in contention for my favorite from their respective age group. I can enjoy watching almost anything with either one of them in it. Too bad they didn't appear in something together over the years...
the game, really is great .... i actually didnt like it much when i first saw it ..... but then lived a few more years of LIFE .... which helped change my opinion lmao.
I really like Michael Douglas' work, I think he's a great actor. He just does a great job of usually playing a business exec caught in the middle of something.
Falling Down, Disclosure, Wall Street, Basic Instinct, The Game...
I don't think I've ever seen a Michael Douglas film I haven't liked.
Just re-watched this one today!
I'd probably have to go with Traffic or his Pym role in Avengers. Not his biggest fan.
Romancing the Stone
The Wonder Boys
Forced to pick one, I'd go with the latter.
Going with Falling down on this one- a disturbing film of a man having a mental breakdown.
Played his character well.
I enjoy Michael's films, I realized I have not seen Falling Down I must correct that omission.
The American President is a favorite. Michael Douglas is in top matinee-idol form, surrounded by a terrific cast all working with a smart pre-West Wing Aaron Sorkin script. In a body of work packed with cop movies and dark thrillers, The American President stands out as one of Douglas' best.
The Game, Falling Down, Fatal Attraction - 3 way tie.
Wonder Boys (my favourite of the bunch)
The American President
Behind the Candelabra
Wall Street. I quote it daily: "Lunch is for wimps" (usually as I'm getting up to go to lunch).
Wall Street but I like slot of his movies
I went to a store once and bought like 4 of em and was thinking man the cashier is gonna think I have an obsession
I'd say "The Game" closely followed by "A Perfect Murder".
Falling Down is too stupid for me to enjoy.
Hard to choose, he made a number of films that I like.
The American President
The War Of The Roses
Romancing The Stone
Jewel Of The Nile
To name a few.
Separate names with a comma.
