Well, there goes any hope of JGL getting anything higher than a 4. *sob*1. Rockwell2. Mortensen3. Copley4. Cage5. Hardy
1) Tom Hardy2) Sam Rockwell3) Viggo Mortensen4) Sharlto Copley5) Nicolas Cage
Predicted:1) Rockwell2) Hardy3) Copley4) Mortensen5) Cage
God Bless you, Louis, You are a saint.
1. Hardy2. Mortensen3. Rockwell4. Copley5. Cage
1. Sam Rockwell2. Viggo Mortensen3. Tom Hardy4. Nicolas Cage5. Sharlto CopleyI'm hoping JGL does better than I expect he will, but I rather doubt it unfortunately.
1. Rockwell2. Hardy3. Mortensen4. Copley5. Cage In regards to the bonus reviews, Maguire is bad, Levitt is pretty good, but he's done better.
It took me three viewings before I gave JGL a 5. The movie has more layers than people give it credit for.
Louis: I've decided to give my suggestions for 09' supporting earlyMichael Fassbender in Inglorious Basterds & Fish TankPeter Capaldi in In The loopJackie Earle Haley & Jeffrey Dean Morgan in Watchmen - Both reviewed in One PostAnd Whatever RatedRStar's pick was
In the Loop had a great cast in general. Yeah, Capaldi was the best, but I think Paul Higgins, James Gandolfini, and David Rasche were great as well.
1. Sam Rockwell2. Viggo Mortensen3. Tom Hardy4. Nicolas Cage5. Sharlto Copley
1. Mortensen2. Hardy3. Rockwell4. Copley5. Cage
Well now, these predictions are... all over the place.
Louis: Can I have your rating & thoughts on John C. McGinley in Platoon
Oh! One more thing. In my prediction between JGL & TM1. Joseph Gordon Levitt895. Tobey Maguire
1. Mortensen2. Cage3. Copley4. Hardy5. Rockwell (good but goddamn overrated)
1. Sam Rockwell2. Tom Hardy3. Viggo Mortensen4. Sharlto Copley5. Nicolas CageOnce again, the top 3 are AMAZING. I personally liked Gordon-Levitt better than Cage, but maybe I need to rewatch Bad Lieutenant.
Well, here is my totally random prediction:1.Rockwell2.Hardy3.Mortensen4.Cage5.Copley
1. Hardy2. Rockwell 3. Cage4. Copley5. Mortensen
1. Rockwell2. Hardy3. Cage4. Mortensen5. Copley
I'm the only one who totally loves JGL to the point of giving him the win, aren't I?
Golly, I sure hope so, Robert. ;)
Again, it took me 3 viewings. (500) Days got better every time I watched it. It finally hit me that his character was intended to be sort of a prick, and how he played certain scenes alluded to that. He basically played the ultimate deconstruction of a Romantic comedy lead. It just sort of spiraled into a win after that.
Scratch that, FOUR viewings.
1. Copley, 52. Rockwell, 5 (tough, tough choice as both carried their respective films SO well.)3. Hardy, 4.54. Mortensen, 45. Cage, 4 (needless to say, I loved all 5 of these performances, although I disliked Bad Lieutenant as a film)Also, a 4 for Levitt and (I'm feeling a bit daring today) a 5 for Maguire
I hope you have a chance to watch The Damned United for the final rating. Of all of Michael Sheen's portrayals of actual people, that, I think, is his best.
Anonymous: Have you seen Brothers? Maguire is NOT getting a 5.
I don't hate Maguire like y'all seem to, but I do agree he's the obvious weak link here.
koook: I'd give him probably a 2.5. He wasn't terrible, he was just ridiculously unimpressive. Gyllenhaal wiped the floor with him.
It's funny how people started dismissing Gyllenhaal as the poor man's Maguire when he started in the business. My what a few performances can do to change that notion.
Yeah, no kidding.
Luke:McGinley - 4.5 (A performance that really grew on me in re-watch. Technically Sergeant O'Neill could have just been a henchmen to the evil Barnes or just a pure weasel. McGinley gives much more depth to the part yes he shows O'Neill as a coward, but also always as a man who's really just fearing for his life in a terrible situation. He's particularly great in the scene where one of the other soldiers murders a villager. O'Neill just wants everyone to forget it, not because he supported it anyway, McGinley shows that O'Neill is horrified at the situation, but just above all wants to keep his head down.)
How could I forget, also please watch OSS 117: Lost in Rio for Jean Dujardin's effortlessly charming performance (though he's better in Cairo, Nest of Spies).
1. Viggo Mortensen2. Sam Rockwell3. Sharlto Copley4. Tom Hardy5. Nicolas Cage
my winning request is Anthony Wong in Beast Cops (Best Actor 1998)
Louis: when's the first review up.
2009 is a weird year. Three great performances that really straddle line between Lead and Supporting: Christoph Waltz in Basterds, JEH in Watchmen, and Peter Capaldi in In the Loop (I'd argue he's lead, but it's very much an ensemble piece).My predictions:1. Rockwell2. Copley3. Cage4. Hardy5. Mortenson
I agree all three straddle the line, though I consider them all Supporting by virtue of ensemble piece. Barely on Capaldi's case.
Random quesstion Louis, what are your top 10 Westerns? (top 5, if you can't do 10)
Matt: I'll bet Once Upon a Time in the West and Unforgiven will be right at the top.
If Assassination of Jesse James isn't on there, God help you. *shakes fist*
Matt: I'll go period only just to make it easy. 1. Once Upon a Time in The West2. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly3. Unforgiven4. The Treasure of Sierra Madre5. The Assassination of Jesse James6. The Proposition7. For a Few Dollars More8. A Fistful of Dollars9. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance10. 3:10 Yuma (2007)
