Louis: Can I have your ratings & thoughts on all Non-Reviewed '98 Supporting performances, that would receive a 4 or a 4.5 from you.
Ah damn, was expecting Ribisi...What are your thoughts/ratings on him?
1. Murray2. Goodman3. Baker4. Koteas5. Lee
There hasn't been a badly reviewed requested performance that people expected to get a decent score yet.I have a feeling Sam Lee will be the first, I really loved him and the fact that it was a complete 180 from his performance in Beast Cops but, I think Louis, you are going to destroy him.1) John Goodman2) Dylan Baker3) Bill Murray4) Elias Koteas5) Sam Lee (I am sorry Sam I still love you =( )
I still get teary about 1998 in films as I felt it was the end of an era, The Siskel and Ebert era, never again will film criticism be so interesting and fun to watch.Louis, I imagine you have already seen The Longest Summer due to that specific picture of Lee, so what are your thoughts and rating on the lead of the film, Tony Ho?
1) John Goodman2) Dylan Baker3) Bill Murray4) Elias Koteas5) Sam Lee
Luke: Ask again in the results that way I'll be refreshed on a few performances. GetDonaldSutherlandAnOscar: Since he would have had a spot had it not been for the requested performance I'll do Ribsi as a bonus review. RatedRStar: I haven't actually watched it yet.
Ah right, Louis can I ask you something?
Please Pleaseeeeee go easy on Sam Lee Ple ple pleaseeeeeeeee he is a lovely person and a good likable actorrrrr.
A lovely person haha xD.
That's more a statement than a question, but I don't think I'd worry too much about it.
Oh, um err Louis in which case can I gave you a statement?
Cheers Louis, you are a legend :D By the way Louis, what are your thoughts on Trevor Howard as an actor
Louis: I'm glad you're reviewing Ribisi, since his last scene, for me was the only one anywhere near the Omaha Beach landing scene in terms of its power and emotion.
1. Koteas2. Goodman3. Murray4. Baker5. LeeI haven't seen none.
Imagine if RatedRStar was running this blog and not Louis, it wouldnt be who gives the best performance but whos the nicest person, actors like Jeff Bridges and James Stewart would win every time lol.
Louis, what are your thoughts/ratings on:Mercedes McCambridge in All the King's MenLee Grant in Detective StoryMary Ure in Sons and LoversHelen Hayes in AirportLee Grant in ShampooAlso, I'd like to ask you, have your ratings on the female cast of Nashville (1975) changes? Because I think that Ronee Blakley easily deserved a 5 for her performance.
JackiBoyz: It would be Rains winning every time.
@Luke: Montgomery Clift and James Mason would also get a lot.
Nearly forgot my rankings:1. Goodman2. Baker3. Koteas4. Murray5. Lee
JackiBoyz: Well Rains all the more.
I would love to imagine Louis typing this for Sam Lees review lol.Daniel Thorntons secret boyfriend, Sam Lee, did not recieve an Oscar nomination for portraying Ga Suen in The Longest Summer.The Longest Summer is a very effective film at wasting your time, nuff said, end of review 2 out of 5 =D.

I wonder how close Bill Murray came to getting Oscar Nominated?
1. Murray2. Goodman3. Baker4. Lee5. KoteasAny thoughts Louis & everyone else on my post in the previous comments section about good performances in bad films?
Scott Gingold: I myself wouldn't consider Tree of Life or Seven Psychopaths bad films per se, and I prefer Pitt, Rockwell and Walken for those films respectively, A Knight's Tale is a film that I personally like a lot and Bettany was the highlight for me as well, I thought McDowell was great, but the film was just incredibly off putting for me, that I just couldn't dare myself to watch it again. Other examples include Alan Rickman in Robin Hood, Morgan Freeman in Street Smart, Eva Green in 300: Rise of an Empire etc.
@Scott Gingold: I think the perfect one you mentioned was Philip Seymour Hoffman in Synecdoche, New York, a very bad film with some of the most hilarious bad makeup ever and a truly drowsy story lol. I honestly cant think of too many others.I would consider Seven Psychopaths a dissapointment purely because In Bruges is a masterpiece.@JackiBoyz: I have faith that Louis will do the right thing, and yes Sam Lee is my secret BF, WHAT OF IT =) lol
The Tree of Life is one of my all-time favorite films, and I thought Seven Psychopaths was fucking brilliant.
Just for the record, I did like Tree of Life mostly for Pitt's Performance, which is his best to date and I thought Seven Psychopaths was really good, although not as good as In Bruges, which is probably the one comedy I've seen more than any other.
Unpopular opinion: I think Seven Psychopaths is even better than In Bruges.
KoooK160: Well, it's your opinion, I just wish Martin McDonagh would make another film soon, since he's one of my favourite directors at the moment.

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Seven Psychopaths, I think it's remarkably smart and funny and pulls off it's concept brilliantly, and the performances are stellar. I just don't think everything comes together as perfectly as it does in In Bruges, but In Bruges is probably my all-time favorite film so that's not a knock against the film at all.
1. KOTEAS.2. Goodman3. Baker.4. Lee.5. Murray (kinda hated him)
Thanks everyone. Now I'm curious what does everyone consider to be bad films? Bottom 10 Worst Films. I'll do mine in a bit.
You mean a "Zero Stars" sort of movie? Here's some for me;I Am SamA Time to KillThe Lovely BonesElizabethtownand so on.
1. Koteas2. Goodman3. Baker4. Murray5. Lee
@Scott: I will stick to films that received some acclaim as opposed to garbage like Freddy Got Fingered which everybody on planet earth hated.I am SamA Time to KillExtremely Loud and Incredibly CloseMurdererWar HorseThe DescendentsA Hatful of RainAwakeningsRayHustle and FlowThe Curious Case of Benjamin ButtonBefore Night FallsThe YearlingMourning Becomes ElectraI am sure there are many more.
@RaterRStar: I too thought that I Am Sam was awful but... Mourning Becomes Electra was at least okay, thanks to Russell mostly. I disliked The Descendants and The Yearling but I still thought they weren't terrible, and I liked Woodley in the first and Wyman in the second.
The Descendants was a weird case of me initially loving the movie, until a friend pointed out MANY glaring flaws in it, and now I don't want to acknowledge its existence.I'm less apprehensive to War Horse than most. Yes, the script and acting are highly questionable. However, I noticed that Spielberg used time-specific film techniques depending on where the story takes place in the moment (i.e. German Expressionism, French New Wave). It's really easy to miss, so I don't really blame anyone for not noticing.
Louis: Seen anything new in the past week.
1.Elias Koteas in The Thin Red Line2.Bill Murray in Rushmore3.Goodman In The Big Lebowsi4.Dylan Baker In Hapine5.Sam Lee in The Longest Summer (Cant wait for you to review him... Good Luck)

1. John Goodman2. Dylan Baker3. Elias Koteas4. Bill Murray5. Sam Lee
Good performances in bad films:Francis Ng in 2000 ADPeter Sellers in The Pink PantherChristian Bale in Reign of Fire, Captain Correlli's Mandolin, Equilibrium, The New World, Terminator Salvation, American Hustle, Out of the FurnaceMickey Rourke in The Expendables, The Pledge, Body HeatPaul Giamatti in Lady in the WaterPeter Fonda in Thomas the Tank EngineKevin Bacon in Hollow ManDonald Sutherland in Virus
Oh come on, American Hustle might have been flawed but it's not bad...
Geez, are me and Psifonian the only Malick fans here?
Damn when I said Virus I meant Outbreak...I rather disliked American Hustle myself. It was pretty bad considering the potential it had at its disposal...
Anonymous:I believe I've given my thoughts on McCambridge, and both of Grants. Ure - 3.5(Her work here is basically one note of sensuous allure in the form of a passionate style. I think her one note is well done, but I don't think it makes her character all that interesting though)Hayes - 2.5(She shows up for just a whole bunch of one-liners as the sly precocious old lady. I thought her whole thing was actually a bit hammy as she played up every second of screen time. Not to egregious levels mind you, but not in a way I really enjoyed)The Nashville ladies are still the same although a re-watch could improve their scores.
Luke: Nothing new at the moment.
I just believe that the performance is "special"
