Alternate Best Actor 1999: Results

5. Brad Pitt in Fight Club-Brad Pitt gives a good enough performance that is charismatic enough although not to the level the film suggests his character should be.

Best Scene: "Hit me as hard as you can"
4. Edward Norton in Fight Club- Norton, in the less showy role of the two leads of the film, gives the more consistent performance effectively portraying his character's strange journey through the film.

Best Scene: The Narrator tries to go to the police.
3. Forest Whitaker in Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai- Whitaker performance is all about creating the style of the samurai which he handles wonderfully well. 

Best Scene: Ghost Dog takes down the gangsters.
2. Guy Pearce in Ravenous- Pearce is very effective by being the sane man among the insanity.

Best Scene: Captain Boyd sees his new commanding officer.
1. Jim Carrey in Man on the Moon- Jim Carrey proves himself a master mimic as he becomes Andy Kaufman and every character he played.

Best Scene: Andy's first time doing the foreigner.

Robert MacFarlane said...

I assume Pearce, Bale, and Douglas are going to be reviewed.

RatedRStar said...

I thought Douglas was pretty average in an average film lol with a terrible Tobey Maguire tagging along lol.

Robert MacFarlane said...

I liked Douglas' supporting role in Traffic MUCH more myself.

Christian Bale in American Psycho
Michael Douglas in Wonder Boys
Guy Pearce in Memento
George Clooney in O Brother Where Art Thou
Bruce Willis in Unbreakable (probably his best performance)

Michael McCarthy said...

Will the cast of The Boondock Saints eventually be making their way into these lists?

Robert MacFarlane said...

God I hope not. Fuck that movie.

RatedRStar said...

Louis might like it lol might be his guilty pleasure film lol.

RatedRStar said...

speaking of which, what is your guilty pleasure movie Louis? =D lol

Mark said...

Seeing Brad Pitt at #5 depresses me. But to each his own. What's your favorite movie of 1999, Louis?

Louis Morgan said...

RatedRStar: Well I feel no guilt but two words Surf Ninjas.

Mark: Magnolia.

RatedRStar said...

=D The Wise Monk likes Ninjas =) interesting.

Mark said...

Surf Ninjas? Interesting. I wish the 2000s had as many guilty childhood pleasures as the 1990s. Speaking of age, how old is everyone just out of curiosity? I feel like at age 18 I'm one of the younger commentators on this blog.

RatedRStar said...

I am 21, and the word emo describes me perfectly in looks and in my personality lol =D.

Matt Mustin said...

I'm 18 as well, Mark.
