I haven't seen The Great Race yet though, and I could do with a rewatch of Doctor Zhivago. Either one could change my predictions.

Louis, what's your ratings and thoughts on David O'Hara and Rhys Ifans in Deathly Hallows pt.1 and Matthew Lewis in pt. 2?

Louis Morgan said...

Luke:

Attenborough - 3.5(Attenborough gets little to do than be a sort of conscious next to Stewart's leader. Nevertheless though Richard Attenborough is Richard Attenborough which means his presence is much appreciated. Attenborough always succeeds in adding a bit of dramatic weight to any scene he is in, and makes an impact despite the film not caring too much about his character.)

Jackiboyz:

I think Flight is a decent enough survival film. I never thought it became anything great, but develops its characters well enough while building enough tension sure. It also has a great cast although not everyone is necessarily giving their career best here.

Kruger - 3.5(Certainly a much more logical approach than Ribisi's weird version of the character. Kruger does the pompous intellectual effectively and is good in his scenes where he tenses up like a spoiled brat. He nicely brings that undercurrent of weakness to his character so the twist involving his character makes sense)

Finch - 3(Finch doing the stiff upper lipped soldier pretty well. It's not that memorable of work from him but it's good work)

Borgnine - 3(Brief role but Borgnine does his character's madness certainly in a fittingly flamboyant way, but it feels true to the insanity of his character rather than just a way to act big)

Fraser - 3(He does a less commanding soldier and does a fine job of suggesting the very real human fear in his character's underhanded ways)

Marquand - 3(The standard role of the humane doctor which he's pretty good at. He certainly makes himself a warm enough presence so that his exit is rather disconcerting)

I don't remember Duryea and Kennedy all that well.

Scott:

Davis - 4(Leaning close to 4.5. Davis does some strong work first as one of the men who just is slowly suffering from their brutal treatment while oddly keeping their same manner as a soldier. It is interesting how each actor carefully shows how the treatment affects each of them. He's great when his character just has had enough, and he makes his breakdown very believable. He's terrific in his later scenes as he basically shows someone becoming a purposeful mad man, and doing as little like a soldier as possible)

Happy New Year to all you guys!

Matt:

O'Hara - 4(Steals the entire movie without saying a word. Now this is the example of someone doing so much without almost nothing. Its a hilarious bit of physical comedy as he reflects Harry losing the transformation. He also makes Harry seem like a particularly bad ass hero with the determination O'Hara brings. Then he's really quite heartbreaking in his face as he looks over the files on his friends. The only problem with his performance is he does kinda show the weaknesses of Radcliffe's work)

Ifans - 3(Brief work but he's nicely kooky in his first appearance. Then in the second he's rather good in portraying the distraught nature of his character, making his actions understandable)

Lewis - 3.5(His performance here makes you wish that the theory that Neville was the real chosen one was true. Lewis better than anyone actually I feel reflects the severity of the final battle in his performance, and even makes the most out of his battle speech. He might as well be the chosen one since Lewis gives the most inspiring work here)

I'm SO glad I'm not the only one who noticed how great O'Hara was in Deathly Hallows.

Matt Mustin said...

I actually can't remember him at all.

Matt Mustin said...

I like him in The Departed, though.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Most people don't.

luke higham said...

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!

Psifonian said...

O'Hara was outstanding in Deathly Hallows. Did so much with so little.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Aw yeah, agreement for once!

Michael Patison said...

I didn't remember O'Hara the first time I saw it, but if you watch it again and pay attention for him, he's all you'll remember.

Also, I'm confused. I don't remember Woody Harrelson being in Thank You for Smoking.

Can I have your thoughts/ratings on:
Sidney Poitier in A Patch of Blue (or have you done so already? I can't quite remember)
Frank Sinatra in Von Ryan's Express
Jamie Sanchez and Brock Peters in The Pawnbroker

Or I'll wait till you do your re-rankings since you might like to have a re-watch of these films, hint hint.

Speaking of Brock Peters, is he in consideration for 1962 supporting? I ask only because the year's so strong for supporting performances.

Lastly, I have just watched the 1939 version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame which was amazing, I hope Laughton is a guarantee for 1939 lead, I was also pleasantly surprised by a very young, very slim and surprisingly entertaining Edmund O'Brien.

I have also seen Exodus and A Most Violent Year, both were decent I guess but a bit disappointing.

My ratings are here, if anyone wants thoughts just ask :D

A Most Violent Year:
Isaac-4 (verging on a 4.5)
Chastain-4 (also verging on a 4.5)
Oyelowo-4
Nivola-3
Brooks-3.5

Exodus:
Bale-4 (by far the best performance in the film, although I am quite partial to Bale always)
Edgerton-2
Turturro-1.5
Paul-1.5
Mendelson-3 (he was ridiculous but hey, fun so I can't fault him for bringing a bit of much needed energy)
Kingsley-2.5
Weaver-2.5
Valverde-2
Varma-3

Louis Morgan said...

I'll give you those thoughts a little later but I believe I have given them on Poitier before.

I would say Peters is in contention for 62.
