Louis: Your rating & thoughts on Noel Coward in The Italian Job.1. Hackman2. Berger3. Ryan4. Borgnine5. Olivier
1. Hackman2. Ryan3. Borgnine4. Berger (I might well curse myself later on for putting him so low, it's quite a love it or hate it performance, I personally didn't think it worked at all but I may well be in the minority)5. Olivier
Also just wondering what you thought what was 'bad' about the endings to Midnight Cowboy, The Wild Bunch and On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Don't take offence Louis, it's just that I've never seen them in that sort of way, I can see your point for say They Shoot Horses Don't They? and Z they kind of just end without much resolution haha.

What are your thoughts/ratings on the cast of Dracula (1990)

Luke:Coward - 4(The film needed more of what he has to offer. He's just a hoot with his precise delivery of his sardonic one liners and his whole excessively proper demeanor is particularly enjoyable since he's a gangster. His walk of triumph his especially entertaining) GetDonaldSutherlandAnOscar:I did not mean bad in terms of quality, I meant as in things did not exactly turn out in a positive fashion for the characters. I actually really like most of those endings and I find Z's extreme turn in basically the last thirty seconds to be extremely effective in particular. 69 must have been a pretty pessimistic year though when James Bond isn't even allowed a happy ending.
That makes sense. Really reflects the stratosphere across the globe at that time: pessimism, nihilism, paranoia.
Louis how close are the following actors to making your top 20:Tom CourtenayPaul NewmanDennis HopperSean ConneryEdward G. Robinson
Thoughts and ratings on the cast of spaceballs
Louis, toughts and ratings on Howard Stern in Private Parts
Don't give your toughts make it a bonus review later!
My responses will be shorter since my first was deleted. GetDonaldSutherlandAnOscar:Haven't made an exact list but:Tom Courtenay - (Up there at least since I've liked to loved all that I've seen from him)Paul Newman - (Probably in it since he's often great, almost always charming and only had a few missteps never having a phase of badness)Dennis Hopper - (Up there since I love a lot of his work and he gave my second favorite supporting performance of all time. He might of a had problem with always getting great projects but from what I've seen he usually still tried in those cases)Sean Connery - (As much as I love some of his work his later Jack Nicholson like over indulgence gives me some pause)Edward G. Robinson - (Up there as, perhaps I need to see more of him, but I've yet to see a bad performance from him. After all he brought his a-game to Soylent Green.)Anonymous:Pullman - 3(I don't mind much of his performance but I think he may have benefited from perhaps being more a deadpan straight man)Candy - 3.5(Very endearing side kick and just a enjoyable presence as usual)Brooks - 3.5(He does his Brooks routine twice here and in both instances it's funny)Zuniga - 2.5(Her spoiled brat routine is never that funny, although really she's just fine anyways)Rivers - 3(Does her usual shtick which works just fine here)Moranis - 4(There's something already funny about Rick Moranis playing an imposing villain. What's best though is that he tries to menacing rather than playing it as nerdy. I particularly love his James Earl Jones impression)Wyner - 4.5(The unsung hero of the film really as I find he acts as just the right sort of dead pan in the spaceballs scenes. His straight forward deliveries with the utmost conviction is really what makes many of his lines so funny)Also John Hurt's cameo is perfection.John Smith:Haven't seen it anyway.
