Heat is good because I also like DeNiro.

Well, if you're playing Satan, I think you have to overact. . I really didn't like him in scent of a woman, and he got nominated. But with Pacino, much if not most of his career is in theatres, not movies. He's played two mobsters in movies, and the result is he's bigger than Cagney. Both the Godfather movies and Scarface are ones you can watch over an over. Cagney was supposed to be better on the stage, and talk about overacting for the camera.

But you can say the same about Hoffman. His character in the Graduate is ... greatness. Marathon Man is also, imo, a classic. Little Big Man. But, he's typecast as the unlikely and unwilling hero. Hoffman also spends more time on Broadway than in Hollywood. Most plays just don't transfer to movies.

Pacino's not a DiCaprio, who seems made for movies, and who can play a variety of physical types for a cameral. You look at Jeff Bridges. The guy created one of the great hollywood roles: the Dude. He takes on John Wayne's role in True Grit without a pause. And then Crazyheart. And he's a guy who never took it too seriously, while Pacino worked his ass off to get into Lee Stasborg's classes. Pacino's ethnic, and he's NYC east coast. Just not Hollywood.

I dig keanu and yes I've seen MAAN. He was bad in that... but in an enjoyable way.

Speaking of that movie, Michael Keaton is a very underrated actor.

Ninth Gate with Johnny Depp had a good portrayal of Satan. It was... Ahhh, different....

Lone Star - 1996 - One of my very favorites.

Looks like a Western, but it's not ... a murder mystery with great flashbacks and
very poignant social commentary weaved in.

Similar to Best Picture winner 'Crash,' but better. People in Hollywood call Crash "Magnolia for stupid people." Tom Cruise is great, gotta see it.



My favorite Ron Howard film ... lots of folks missed it.

Come now. Gandalf is a very mildly wizardly Wizard.

I think a decade later, LOTR has finally supplanted Star Wars as my most favoriteist fantasy universe.

And as much pissing and moaning as there was about the Hobbit, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Without any of the self-doubt, regret, and possible erectile dysfunction that Phantom Menace brought about back in the day.

Hey, your ladies in your life sat still for two minutes while it was about all you. Turn the favor and show them some excitement that goes past 2 minutes. Star Wars trilogy were awesome and I am glad I grew up when they were part of the culture.

This movie hits on so many levels.

It is so well written that you feel for Lester you want Lester to succeed .

All the while Lester is trying to be a pedophile.

How many movies can make you root for a Pedophile ?

The Dictator - funniest movie I've seen since Step Brothers. If you like comedy, and haven't seen it yet, you're really missing out.

Cloud Atlas - I just did not follow that movie at all.

My good friend and singer in my band played the Russian mob hitman that gets toilet dropped on him in Boondock Saints. Also a couple of the producers come to our shows now and then.

I used to be embarrassed that I had never seen the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly. Then I watched it about two months ago. Now I know what took me so long. I love Eastwood, but I really don't get what all the fuss is all about with this flick.

It moves too slow and is waaaay too long. They could've cut a few scenes in this movie, and it would have probably helped the pace, and not lose a thing.
