Luke:Ask again about De Niro in Irons's review.Stand by Me:I'll preface with that all the boys have a good chemistry to begin with and come off as a genuine group of friends. Now from what I remember as this is another one that I have not seen in a long time:Wheaton - 3.5(Solid enough as the more retiring and depressed lead)Phoenix - 4(The most charismatic of them all, and gives a strong portrayal of innate strength and confidence)Feldman - 3.5(His whole early career was spent playing at least the slight odd ball. This is one of the better examples as he is funny but suggests his personal problems)O'Connell - 3(The thinnest role probably but he's good at being the fat kid without ever going too far to become just a caricature)Connery - 4.5(This role suggests that perhaps he wouldn't have been a bad Gandalf after all. Many of Connery's later performances became a tad over indulgent, although I do prefer indulgence from Connery more than other actors, but this is not the case here. He's very effective in portraying his character low key but very strong passion and intelligence)Slater - 2(The less charismatic and far less talented River Phoenix. He always seems somewhat out of his element, and is always overshadowed by Connery)Abraham - 3(I don't know why he speaks like sportscaster exactly, but I thought he did the very official maliciousness well enough)Hunter - 5(Despite being mute she carries the film, and overshadows everyone else in the film. She gives a fascinating and searing portrayal of an uncontrollable spirit all without saying a word)
Louis: lastly, for nostalgia, I would like to know your ratings & thoughts on Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery & Clancy Brown in Highlander.
Louis: Has Goldblum's rating been upgraded for Jurassic Park or is it still the same.
Luke:Lambert - 3(He definitely has some awkward moments, but for the most part I thought he was a good enough action lead)Connery - 3(Here's the indulgent Connery, but it works here)Brown - 3.5(He's having a lot of fun and some of it does rub off on the viewer. He also is properly imposing)Goldblum's rating is the same.
Now that you've finished watching some more 1996 movies, do you now have a complete top 5 for the year, Louis?
When you do Supporting Actor for this year please could you do Brian Cox as Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter?

Hey Louis, can I have your ratings and thoughts on Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty in The Hurt Locker, Yoo Ji-Tae in Oldboy and Nicolas Cage and Sam Rockwell in Matchstick Men?
Louis: your ratings & thoughts on Kyle Maclachlan in Blue Velvet & Rick Moranis in Little Shop of Horrors.
For supporting actor can I recommend:Dennis Hopper- Blue VelvetDaniel Day-Lewis- A Room with a ViewMichael Caine- Mona LisaBrian Cox- Man Hunter
Don't forget Steve Martin in Little Shop of Horrors.
Daniel Day Lewis was also really good in My Beautiful Laundrette (1985 but stil)
I love that Hackman is getting reviewed while the NCAA Tournament is going on (aka the best time of the year)
1. Harrison Ford2. Gary Oldman3. Jeff Goldblum4. Gene Hackman5. Jeremy IronsTop 3 were all excellent though, I wouldn't mind it going to any of them.
I'm going to change my predictions a bit;1. Goldblum2. Oldman3. Ford4. Hackman5. Irons
I think I will change mine too.1) Oldman2) Goldblum 3) Ford4) Hackman5) Irons
Kevin:Mackie - 4(I find it odd that 09 he could not gain any traction despite his film winning best picture. Anyway he works as an effective counterpoint to Renner's performance, showing a more reflective personality and bringing a poignancy to his character's reactions from the developments in the story)Geraghty - 3(I was less impressed by him for the most part as I thought on occasion he overacted a bit. Still for the most part he gave a decent portrayal of his character's fears) Ji-Tae - 4(Effective for most of the film in being a viciously smug villain. He goes further than that though giving a pretty powerful depiction of guilt in his final scene)Cage - 4(He perhaps goes a bit overboard at times but it is fitting for his character who always thinks there is something wrong with him. In his calmer moments though he is pretty endearing and enjoyable as a more casual type of con man)Rockwell - 3.5(Should have been given a little more to do as he basically is made a little too much of a side character. What he does have is some nice Rockwellian goodness as he carries himself with the right charisma and cleverness to be con man)Luke:MacLachlan - 4(He's not exactly the most interesting presence here but the simplicity of his performance is what works. He goes to portray basically the reaction of any one in his situation and work as being a sane center to an insane film)Moranis - 4(I've always liked Moranis and it's a shame he's completely retired from film. Anyway he very enjoyable, entertaining and appropriately sympathetic here)
