As long, as you review all your 5s, I'm happy enough with the ten you gave, the only one potentially missing is Tatum, although you'll probably do a Ribisi on him.

@Luke, I should say that if I had won any of the recent requests it wouldn’t have been Chang Chen since Louis has seen him a few times, whereas now I am more interested in getting Louis to see Hong Kong actors that he hasn’t seen yet.
RatedRStar: It was a guess and I just had a feeling you would choose Chen.Since, I believe you've seen all of the films for the lineup, can you predict what ratings Louis, will give to the ten performances in question.I'm predicting 5s for all but maybe Gyllenhaal in Enemy.
1. Gyllenhaal2. Gleeson (who honestly I found to be just okay)3. Phoenix4. McConaughey5. Hoffman1. Fiennes2. Hardy3. Oyelowo4. Pearce5. Gyllenhaal
By the way guys, wo do you think is the better actor?Duvall or Nicholson?I think it is Nicholson since his performance in Five Easy Pieces is the greatest performance ever put on film, in my opinion.
Even tough i really love Duvall
John Smith: For me, I'll go with Duvall since, he's been the more consistent over the extent of his career, although Nicholson has had more 5 star performances.
Luke, What would you say is Duvall's and Nicholson's best performances?
John Smith:Duvall - Apocalypse NowNicholson - One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Luke: I agree with you about Apocalypse
Group 1:1. Gyllenhaal2. Phoenix3. Gleeson4. McConaughey5. HoffmanGroup 2:1. Pearce2. Hardy3. Fiennes4. Oyelowo5. GyllenhaalI think all 10 performances will receiv 5sAlso, ratings and thoughts on Andy Serkis in Apes, Timothy Spall in Mr Turner, Channing Tatum in Foxcatcher and Christoph Waltz in The Zero Theorem
1. Gyllenhaal2. Gleeson3. Phoenix4. Hoffman5. McConaughey1. Oyelowo2. Fiennes3. Hardy4. Pearce5. Gyllenhaal
The difference between Duvall and Nicholson is the same as Clift Vs Brando, Duvall and Clift are more consistent and tend to always put 100 percent effort no matter the film.@Luke: I think everyone will get a 5, Gyllenhaal could possbibly get 4.5 for Enemy but he could also get a 5.
omg I am so excited and nervous about the 2015 season =D, to see Jake, Leo, Fassy and Hardy as potential nominees is just sexual =D please someone tell me I am wrong lol.
RatedRStar: You're not wrong, Dicaprio & Fassbender are great possibilities for Lead and we'll see what happens with Gyllenhaal & Hardy, I personally hope the competition is, as good as the past two years.
Louis: Just in case, have you seen Joe or A Most Violent Year.
RatedStar: What is the purpose in making Louis watch Hong Kong performances? I mean, unless he wants it. Because for instance I am from Slovakia and I don't have a need to make him watch slovakian actors. I'm not saying it's something bad, I just ask. (Though sometimes I am annoyed when I see your requested performance get reviewed in favor of some performances that REALLY was an alternate for Oscar)
Because there's a treasure trove of wonderful performances from other countries, Hong Kong included.
And trust me, when we get to bonus rounds I'll be suggesting nothing BUT foreign language performances for the most part.
I've no problem with RatedRStar requesting HK performances, as long as Louis likes it over those supposed alternatives.
KoooK160: Mads Mikkelson in The Hunt, A Royal Affair and so onTatsuya Nakadai in RanRahim & Arestrup in Un PropheteAntonio Banderas in The Skin I live inAnyone from The White Ribbon (although It's been a long while, since I last saw it.)Mathieu Amalric in The Diving Bell and The ButterflyTony Leung Chiu Wai in Lust CautionDaniel Bruhl in Goodbye LeninLi & Leung in HeroAlexandre Rodrigues in City of GodEtc
@Moviefilm: I will explain, there are quite a few reasons why I often request HK performances.1)Unpredictability, often when the oscar snubs for a year happen people tend to mention the same obvious performances that Louis has most likely already seen it, when its a film/performance that hardly anyone has seen its great to see if it is a disaster or a hidden gem.2)Foreign language exposure, I have mainly suggested HK performances but I have also suggested many different kinds, Jean Marais and Jakub Gierzal were both winning requests, my main film knowledge comes from either well, the Oscars, or the Asian film industry so I feel confident in sharing hidden gems.3) To introduce new and Underrated talent to the blog, not many people know of Lau Ching Wan and Nicholas Tse and plenty of others, I feel I am somewhat educating by showing everyone that there is hidden talent out there, not just the obvious actors that everyone thinks of, but hidden talent.I should say, the main important thing I think is whether Louis has seen it, Moviefilm I imagine one of your well, annoyed reactions was probably at Jim Carreys miss in 98 since Tony Leung and Wong were reviewed instead, but at the end of the day, Louis still saw The Truman Show, its not like it was completely shut out from the blog, he still ranked him, you have to consider that =).
I was thinking Peyman Moaadi in A Separation, Sol Kyung-gu in Oasis, and Romain Duris in The Beat That My Heart Skipped as well.
And its not like I am trying to shove HK down anyones throat lol, keep in mind my love for any film in general, my love for Claude Rains, James Mason and many other actors that I deemed underrated by public perception =D.
@Moviefilm: If it makes you happier there arent that many more HK actors that I feel I need to show Louis just a few more =D.
@RatedRStar What would you say that's the best female HK performance you've seen?
I should say I really liked some of these HK films, I mean Hard Boiled and The Longest Nite were just balls to the wall fun.
I know there are fatnastic foreign performances out there, for example Adéle Exarchopolous is my personal win for last year in her category. Jean Louis-Trintignant is my win for Amour that year. Massimo Troisi is my win for Il Postino. I loved Monica Bellucci in Malena, Marion Cotillard in Rust and Bone, or Ľuboš Kostelný in slovak film called Muzika. But I feel like this blog is then going away from its primar purpose, which was to review Oscar nominated performances. And now he's reviewing alternate nominees. That's why I'd like to read the reviews that at least had a small shot at getting nominated. (If it's a foreign performance, I don't complain.) I would somehow expect that Louis would review performances from film that were at least screened in the USA, therefore they were eligible for Oscar nomination. Because if this blog was about performances, it wouldn't be called "actoroscar", right? I don't mean it bad, I am just expressing my opinion that I would really rather read the review of a terrible Christoph Waltz's performance in Big Eyes (that was in consideration to get nominated), than a review a perfect performance given by someone I have never heard of in a film that I didn't know existed.
"I am just expressing my opinion that I would really rather read the review of a terrible Christoph Waltz's performance in Big Eyes (that was in consideration to get nominated), than a review a perfect performance given by someone I have never heard of in a film that I didn't know existed."That's utterly absurd. Reading about little seen performances and movies is far more gratifying than reading about some unexceptional performance that we all saw.
@GM: oh youve put me on the spot there =D umm, I would say I would tie with 3Tang Wei - Lust CautionMaggie Cheung - Comrades: A Love StorySandra Ng - Portland Street Blues
A performance that I don't know a lot of is probably the one I don't even want to know about. OK, I am a huge Oscar fan/faollower. Everything, the atmosphere around the Oscars fascinates me. And I really want to read about performances that have something to do with the Oscars. I am not interested in great performances from Asian/European film. If I was, I'd read sites about them. I am interested in performances that are Oscar-realted (either were nominated, snubbed, worthy, or considered). That's why I won't even watch those films, even if they get requested/reviewed.
In case you haven't noticed, we're running on short supply of Oscar-bait here. Now we have to rely on the obscure, arguably better stuff. If you don't like it, stop reading the blog. Don't expect any sympathy from the rest of us.
What I would say Moviefilm is, respect others differences, diversity is one of the things that makes films so wonderful.Louis has done something so amazing by reviewing all of the Oscar nominated performances, that alone would be enough but he had the great idea of reviewing other performances for our pleasure and his.Keep in mind most of Louis reviews on the alternates have been actors that have been snubbed by the academy, like often Louis has put " This actor did not recieve an Oscar nomination but did recieve a globe and bafta nom" I would call those very Oscar performances.
Louis what are your thoughts on this?
I should say on a different topic..I asked for a day leave off work just to watch the Oscars this year =D I feel like such a Boss =D.
I like reading this blog and I don't expect sympathy. You don't like me since I defended Carell and I realize you won't accept anything I write. It's just my opinion and I stand behind it. As for Louis, I think he's been doing a great job. His reviews have always been great and I thank him for doing so. I just think that requesting strange performances that I and many other people have never heard of is taking place of someone who actually had a shot (maybe was terrible) and reading a review about him would be much more interesting...
I wasn't even the one THAT upset over Carell. Now I'm going to make it my goal to request nothing BUT obscure foreign performances whenever I win.
@RatedRStar Thank you! Love Cheung in Comrades.I also think that an Alternate Oscar is meant to explore films that the Academy never would care about.
Look I dont dislike you at all lol I have no personal hate towards anyone whether I agree with them on a performance or not and I have always respected everyones opinion deep down lol =D I only do the whole anger rant thing for giggles =D I once told Louis when he reviewed Claude Rains for Casablanca that he farted in my face =D lol but I didnt actually mean it lol =D.
MovieFilm: 4.5s & 5s and no garbage.
MovieFilm: I don't hate you, but I do respect your opinion, like everyone else.
Moviefilm lets move on from this because it doesnt really help anyone =D this is a lovely blog with deep down lovely people on it, big hugs for everyone ok =D.
I've just seen Under the Skin. I can understand why someone might hate it but personally I loved it. Such an artful film, beautifully directed, with a great score and great visuals. As for Scarlett Johansson, she is mesmerizing. She doesn't have much dialogue, but the body and the eyes tell everything about her character's transition from a heartless alien to a confused, self-doubting human being. I don't really know why, mostly because it's an almost silent performance, but she actually reminded me of Ryan Gosling in Drive.
I personally don't mind whatever Louis reviews as long as he has something interesting to say, which is about 99% of the time, the only exceptions I can think of are performances where there is truly nothing to talk about like Teddy Savalas in Birdman of Alcatraz. Otherwise a very good performance, a middling one, overwhelming/underwhelming, or even terrible performances always have something notable to write about, I find.I completely understand Moviefilm's view and respect it, however I do really like some of RatedRStar's HK recommendations, like Tony Leung in Infernal Affairs and Nicolas Tse in Bodyguards and Assasins.
RatedStar: I agree on that. Let's just hug. :D And by the way, I really like discussing with you guys, what would a discussion be about, if everyone involved agreed on the topic?Robert: I don't have problem with that. You can do whatever you feel is right. Just as I requested Maguire and everyone else was against it. It's just I won't very much enjoy that, I probably won't even read those particular reviews. But if everyone else will, I'll be asbolutely OK with that.
If we all could pick an actor/actress pairing and put them into a film of any choice, who would we pick? James Stewart/Celia Johnson (A Hitchcock would've been interesting)James Mason/Deborah Kerr (The End of the Affair, replace Van Johnson with Mason, and John Mills with Richard Attenborough) Sidney Poitier/Maggie Smith (Othello, much as I like Olivier, imagine Poitier doing Shakespeare, mind blown)
@Moviefilm: HUGGGG =D, well any discussion on the Oscars or films goes well with me, like I should say, I am kinda somewhat happy Redmayne won SAG because that means the Best Actor race will be a great 2 horse race now rather than 1 sided which although Keaton is my favorite it is still nice to see compitetion since the other acting categories are pretty much locked in.@GM: Your welcome I loved Comrades =D.
Moviefilm: I see what you mean about wanting to read more about the oscars, but I don't think that's all tho. Blog is about. Lately it's more about recognizing performances that should've been recognized by the academy and other awards bodies, but for whatever reason weren't. Although every now and then I really enjoy reading reviews of a bad or underwhelming performance, I and I think many others on this blog think the one of the coolest things about it is discovering interesting, sometimes great performances and films we likely would never have heard of otherwise.
@Donald: I would pickMichael Fassbender and Rosamund Pike in a gritty romantic dramaCharles Laughton and Marlene Dietrichin a comedy about strippers =D lolTom Hardy and Marion Cotillard in any Brando remake that wasnt very good.Clark Gable and Viven Leigh (Hitchcock film)
GDSAO: This is a random one,Ben Foster/Carey Mulligan - Star Wars Prequels, also they have to be made now instead of 15+ years ago and a far fucking better script/characterization.
This isn't exactly what the original question was, but I think it'd be really cool to see a UK remake of Infernal Affairs/The Departed with Tom Hardy in Leung/DiCaprio role and Michael Fassbender in the Lau/Damon role.
@Michael McCarthy: OMG yes, that is orgasmtastic =D.
Michael McCarthy: I'd be in heaven, if that were ever to happen.
I am dieing to see Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender in a film together, Id gasp like a girl if I saw both of them at the same award ceremony let alone in the same film =D.
I demand Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy play Elphaba and Glinda in Wicked.
@RatedRStar: Laughton and Dietrich, that'd be lovely. I can definitely see the first one occurring somewhere down the line. Hardy + Cotillard in a remake of Last Tango in Paris, can the world handle all that sex appeal lol. On a serious note, I know I'm commiting cinematic blasphemy here but they could probably pull off a On the Waterfront.Marlon Brando/HardyEve Marie Saint/CotillardRod Steiger/Casey AffleckLee J Cobb/Jeff GoldblumKarl Malden/Michael ShannonLuke: That would've been great. Skip all the young Anakin/Jar Jar bullshit, put Ben as Anakin I suppose, badass and all with a dark side, Mulligan would be brilliant, keep McGregor as Obi Wan, and you're right, MUCH better script and characterization needed.
RatedRStar: As of now, it's a shame they only have one credit together, they don't even interact once with each other.
@Michael: That's fine, I meant actor on actor pairings as well haha my bad
I honestly believe Tom Hardy is a better actor than Marlon Brando, I know Brando has done amazing work and Hardy is still a fairly young actor but man Hardy just has this something about him.
RatedRStar: Well, he doesn't strike as one, who would phone it in on the rare occasion, where as Brando, did it quite often.
I would love to see Casey Affleck nominated again alongside Fassy, Hardy, Jake and Leo possibly in my dreams, although his only nomination so far is just amazing =D
Have any of you guys ever thought of retroactive remakes? Like more modern movies as if they were made in the past with classic actors? For example, a 1950s version of Drive starring James Dean, Eva Marie Saint, and Clark Gable.
Luke: Not yet in regards to the film. I guess I'll hold off on Tatum for the moment, as he would have been instead of the request, but I won't guarantee an extra review at the moment. Spall - 4.5(A mannered performance to be sure with every grunt and breath he takes, but in a good way. He turns Turner into an engaging peculiar character without falling into caricature. Spall's performance does express the way in which Turner is involved in his mind that seems to transcend normal human thought as well as human decency. Spall makes the cruelty of his character feel right to the nature of Turner as man. He smartly conveys just a bit of love in the man in small subtle ways towards the widow and his father, but effectively shadows this with Turner's self-indulgences. Spall conveys most importantly the brilliance of the man as he expresses his visions simply in his portrayal of the way how Turner looks upon any setting, but Spall never excuses Turner's shortcomings)Waltz - 4.5(Bordering on a 5. Where Big Eyes is probably his most over the top performance he gave probably his quietest in The Zero Theorem. Waltz though creates a compelling and oddly convincing portrayal of his character's eccentricities. He never let's us in so to speak, by having his character less distant, yet there is such an emotional vulnerability he brings to his character's introversion that is quite remarkable. It's a moving performance that very nicely grounds the weird science fiction film in a needed humanity) Serkis - 4(Although I kinda want to wait for a potential Rise review for my thoughts)Michael McCarthy:I would actually say Gable would be perfect for Cranston's role, and throw say Jackie Gleason into Albert Brooks's.
@Michael McCarthy: Interesting you ask that Michael haha. What other thoughts did you have in mind, I like that term 'retroactive remakes'. The Drive idea sounds great.For me,Django Unchained (1950s)Sidney Poitier as DjangoClaude Rains as Dr King SchultzJoseph Cotten as Calvin CandiePaul Robeson as StephenGladiator (1960s)Robert Shaw as MaximusTom Courtenay as CommodusBoris Karloff as AntoniousThe Prestige (1940s)Trevor Howard as Alfred BordenJoseph Cotten as Robert AngierHenry Travers as CutterClifton Webb as TeslaIn Bruges (1940s)James Mason as RayBarry Fitzgerald as KenRobert Donat as HarryCollateral (1950s)Burt Lancaster in the Tom Cruise roleTony Curtis in the Jamie Foxx role
What do you think of these haha
Yep, at the moment, everyone apart from Gyllenhaal in Enemy is getting a 5. I do hope you review Tatum, Louis, although, it would be fine with me if you reviewed him as a bonus, on the supporting lineup, ala Cruise in Collateral.
Louis: So, we have to wait another year for your thoughts on Serkis.
Only a 4 for Serkis? *heart violently shatters*GDSAO:I love your Django cast, as well as Courtenay as Commodus, Fitzgerald as Ken, and Travers as Cutter.How about this:Watchmen-1960s (I know it doesn't make sense but I've got some good ideas I think)Rorschach - Anthony PerkinsDr. Manhattan - Paul NewmanSilk Spectre - Faye DunawayNite Owl - Stuart WhitmanOzymandias - Max von SydowThe Comedian - Eli Wallach
I think he's pretty damn good in Dawn. He absolutely oozes gravitas in every scene. Picks the perfect voice and posture for the role. He's an easy 4.5 for me.That being said, the MVP is easily Toby Kebbell as Koba.
I'll be surprised, if Kebbell doesn't get a 4.5, also, Serkis getting a 4 doesn't really surprise me since it's similar enough to the original performance in Rise.
I think he's a lot more fully realized in Dawn than he is in Rise. Also unlike Rise, this isn't just Caesar's story, so his character arc is a lot more subtle and less aided by the actual plot. Even with these challenges, Serkis realizes the changes in Caesar's attitude perfectly.
@Michael McCarthy: Not to be too vulgar or anything, but that is one fucking awesome cast, especially von Sydow as Ozymandias.
I have some alternatives however, don't feel offended Michael yours are great.Rorschach-Richard Widmark would be a good choice too, though maybe a bit too obvious. I also think Monty Clift could be an awesome Comedian.
Or how about a Japanese version of Watchmen haha :DToshiro Mifune as RorschachTatsuya Nakadai as OzymandiasMasayuki Mori as Nite OwlTsutomu Yamazaki as Dr ManhattanTakeshi Shimura as The ComedianMachiko Kyō as Silk Spectre
Also, for the UK remake of Infernal Affairs/The Departed with Tom Hardy in Leung/DiCaprio role and Michael Fassbender in the Lau/Damon role, have Ray Winstone in Jack Nicholson/Eric Tsang's role, Jim Broadbent in the Martin Sheen/Anthony Wong role, and (since going through The Departed supporting cast is more fun for me) James McAvoy and Stephen Fry in the Mark Whalberg/Alec Baldwin roles, and Felicity Jones as the love interest.
Or maybe Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry in the Mark Whalberg and Alex Baldwin roles, that'd be nice :)
GDSAO: What about Peter Capaldi (Malcolm Tucker Mode) in the Baldwin role alongside McAvoy in the Wahlberg role.
@Luke: PERFECT. Capaldi would be equally good in either role. Maybe him and Steve Coogan could work too, Malcom Tucker v.s. Alan Partridge, golden.
Malcolm Tucker and Bruce Robertson in the same scene would be cinematic gold.
Since I am so excited about Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, I thought I should get some preparation, by revisiting his sole Oscar nomination, Brokeback Mountain, funnily enough on this blog I won the predictions for that category as I did believe William Hurt was better at the time, but I have a feeling that might not be the case this time when I watch it soon.
What about a Departed in any other decade Luke, Michael, anyone else 1930sJames Cagney in the DiCaprio/Leung rolePat O'Brien in the Damon/Lau role1940sRobert Mitchum in the DiCaprio/Leung roleEdmond O'Brien in the Damon/Lau role1950sWilliam Holden in the DiCaprio/Leung roleBurt Lancaster in the Damon/Lau role1960sSteve McQueen in the DiCaprio/Leung rolePaul Newman in the Damon/Lau role1970sAl Pacino in the DiCaprio/Leung roleRobert Redford in the Damon/Lau role1980sJames Woods in the DiCaprio/Leung roleGary Oldman in the Damon/Lau role1990sNicolas Cage in the DiCaprio/Leung roleRay Liotta in the Damon/Lau role
GDSAO: I'll do the 60's onwards60sSame as yours70'sPacino - Good MoleNicholson - Bad Mole80'sWilliam Hurt - Good MoleHarrison Ford - Bad Mole90'sRussell Crowe - Good MoleGary Oldman - Bad Mole
GDSAO: I like your Japanese cast, although I'd personally switch Mifune and Yamazaki.As for other casts for Infernal Affairs, I actually had that idea a while back and I did it for every decade, but the only one I can remember clearly is Brando as the Good Mole and Clift as the Bad Mole, with Edward Arnold in the Tsang/Nicholson role. ALSO NEW IDEABirdman-mid 1980sRiggan-Adam WestMike-Dustin HoffmanSam-Meg RyanLesley-Faye Dunaway (can you tell I'm a fan?)Sylvia-Jane AlexanderJake-Beau BridgesTabitha-Angela Lansbury
Luke: Might not be that long.....Michael McCarthy: I second on the Mifune/Yamazaki switch. Birdman - early 60's (Horror Icon instead)Riggan - Lon Chaney Jr.Mike - Maximilian SchellSam - Elizabeth HartmanLesley - Shirley MacLaineSylvia - Deborah KerrJake - Peter UstinovTabitha - Bette Davis
Ahhh nice one Louis, Ustinov and Davis would be a riot.
Birdman, 1990Riggan: Christopher ReeveMike: Michael Keaton (how's that for a mindfuck?)Sam: Jennifer Jason LeighLesley: Michelle PfeiferSylvia: Laura DernJake: Robin WilliamsTabitha: Debbie Reynolds
For some more fun a couple more of the Best Picture Nominees:The Imitation Game (60's)Alan Turing: Dirk BogardeJoan Clarke: Jean SimmonsHugh Alexander: Richard AttenboroughStewart Menzies: Cyril CusackCommander Denniston: Jack HawkinsBoyhood (50's-60's):Mason: Brandon deWildeMason Sr.: Paul NewmanOlivia: Patricia NealThe Grand Budapest Hotel (50's):Gustave: James MasonYoung Zero: Omar SharifAlec Guinness as Everyone Else. Whiplash (70's):Neiman: Jeff BridgesFletcher: Gene Wilder
That idea for The Grand Budapest Hotel was so good I almost cried at the thought that it can never happen.
The Departed (90s):Guy Pearce-goodOldman-badAlso, it's a real shame Tatum O'Neal isn't 5-10 years older because she'd have made a great addition as the sister in Louis's BoyhoodI also think Ralph Fiennes as Turing would be awesome
Louis, I just looked it up and it seemed to me The Zero Theorem would actually be 2013 by your rules, am I right?
I guess it is. I had not seen the Norway release.
