I've heard its great for action, but not very good at showcasing the actors (no character development, background stories, etc.)

Depp was good and there were some good things about it, but it could've been much more imo.
I thought it was great, but it drag out at the end. I can see what your saying.

I saw it for $5. Decent movie. Pretty much exactly what you think it will be.

Whenever I write down a list of my favorite movies I'm constantly forgetting about 10 Things I Hate About You. I freaking love this movie.

Seriously. What a great actor. I love the scene in 10 Things where he's singing in the stadium and running away from the cops

Ledger was a revelation in The Dark Knight. He truly elevated his acting skills in that role.

I can't help but lauph now at my initial reaction when i heard Ledger was going to be the Joker. Old heads were even saying no one could replace Nicholson as the Joker. Heath brought the Joker character to another level

Which is why the Dark Knight is my favorite movie. Heath Ledger he became one of the darkest characters that I have ever seen. I never thought he would have been as good as he was. Its truly ashame that he died because I think he would have become one greatest actors of our generation.

As anyone seen the A Knights Tale? I thought that movie was fucking greaat.

O.k., your top 5 actors?

Al Pacino
Robert De Niro
Kevin Spacey
Lance Henriksen
Charles Bronson


If this were a top 10 list, Bill Murray, Gary Oldman, Gene Hackman, Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman would definitely be contenders (no pun intended) for the list.

Actresses are harder to rank. While I love many actresses, such as Susan Surandon, Meryl Streep, Ingrid Bergman, Jodi Foster, Barbara Hershey, Parker Posey and Jennifer Connelly, I just don't follow them as much.

I've seen a lot of these actresses films:

Ashley Judd
Naomi Watts
Kim Basinger
Holly Hunter
Scarlett Johansson

Denzel is great in Fallen.

Norton is awesome in almost everything I've seen him in, which is most of his filmography. He couldn't save Pride and Glory though. Can't wait for Leaves of Grass.

I fixed Philip's name. What an unconventional guy to be successful at what he does, mainly dramatic roles. Usually the fat guy takes the comedy route.

Denzel is the same character in just about every movie not called 'Training Day' that he is in. Maybe 'Man on Fire' as well.
