Another movie question (or two)

[3]
Posted: Feb 1, 2014, 11:27 AM
 

Who are the five actors/actresses who make you want to see a movie just because they are in it? Not necessarily the best actors/actresses...just the ones who are consistently winners. Maybe not the most talented, but the ones who make good choices.

Then...who are the five whose movies you try to avoid?

Five to watch
George Clooney
Matt Damon
Morgan Freeman
Jack Nicholson
Robert Duval

Five actresses
Sandra Bullock
Elisabeth Shue
Holly Hunter
Angelina Jolie
Helen hunt

Five actors I avoid
Will Ferrell
Rick Moranis
Sylvester Stallone
Arnold schwarzennregar
Tom cruise

Actresses I avoid
Julia Roberts
Sharon stone
Jennifer Aniston
Kathy Griffin
Janeane Garofalo

Jason Statham
Bruce Willis
Adam Sandler (yeah I know)
Clint Eastwood

the anti list s not nearly as long:
Sean Penn ("Fast Times" excepted)
Susan Sarandon
Jim Carrey
Tom Cruise
Hugh Grant
Cher
of course, all the Dane Cook/Pauly Shore ilk

there's more, but I don't wanna think very hard on this.

Pauly Shore might be the one exception to my...

declaration that even a bad actor makes at least one good movie. I've never seen a Dane Cook movie.

My "avoid" list would look the same as yours.

Five to watch:

Al Pacino
Paul Newman
Tom Hanks
Robert De Niro
Kevin Spacey


Women

Sandra Bullock
Cate Blanchett
Judi Dench
Annette Bening
Julianne Moore


The Men's "to watch" list is difficult to narrow down to 5.

great question

To watch:

Men:
Duvall for sure. He's my clear #1.
Denzel Washington
Ethan Hawke
Harrison Ford
John C. Reilly
Steve Carrell

Women:
Agree on Sandra Bullock
Meryl Streep. The best there's ever been. Period.
Julie Delpy. Really for her writing more than her acting.
Jessica Chastain
Amy Adams

To avoid:

Most everyone else.

Never really thought about this but here's my list


Posted: Feb 1, 2014, 11:31 PM
 

at least with about 5 minutes of thought given:

Five actors to watch:
Clooney
Damon
Nicholson
Matthew McConaughey
Cruise/Will Smith


Five actresses to watch:
Olivia Wilde
Jennifer Lawrence
Meryl Streep
Rachel McAdams
Zoe Saldana

Five actors I avoid:
Old Pacino
Old Duval
Old De Niro
Old Sandler
Old Eddie Murphy

Five actresses I avoid:
Old Julia Roberts
Angelina Jolie
Barbra Streisand
Jenny McCarthy
Kristen Stewart/Anne Hathaway

I laughed at reading Rick Moranis on your list because he hasn't been an "actor" in 20 or so years. (I believe he quit to raise his kids after his wife died)

He must have really rubbed you the wrong way in his movies for you to still hold a grudge after 20 years.

Jennifer Aniston

Will Farrel did a fine job in 'Stranger Than Fiction.'


Posted: Feb 2, 2014, 1:16 PM
 

It' might have been his bestest onlyest good work though the actresses in that were the real stars. I like some of his comedys and The Candidate was one of the best.
