The third time through, I stopped watching midway through. To each his own, I guess.



    I have been meaning to watch that. I can't believe I haven't done it yet...

    I actually felt the same way. I just rewatched Boondocks for like the 4th time a few days ago and I thought "eh, whatever" when the 1st time viewing I was like "holy **** that movie was awesome!"

    • I don't know why, but Event Horizon sends a chill down my spine every time. That movie terrifies me.

        • I recently picked up a copy of Lost In Translation. Have not put that to use, yet.

          It was a boring day, so we just stayed at the cheap movies for a while. Saw The Men Who Stare at Goats and Law Abiding Citizen. I've already forgotten 99% of both. Somehow in my time there I did not realize that Pirate Radio was playing. Bah.

          • Terminator Salvation was okay at best. bleh. Terminator died as soon as the credits started to roll after T2.

            And seriously...stop putting Common in movies. What does he offer?

            Thanks BoneKrusher^

                • Star Trek is surprisingly forgettable (saw it about three or four days ago). I remember watching it, but I can't remember anything that happened. I remember thinking it was alright. I'm a fan of Chris Pine and if you haven't seen Smokin' Aces... you need to, just for Pines performance (since it isn't a great movie by any means -- and actually gets worse with multiple viewings). One of my favorite performances though.

                  Watched Donnie Brasco again. Unless I'm forgetting something, this is the last great Italian mob movie, probably ever. Johnny Depp's performance gets better and better each and every time I see it. One of my favorite movies of the 90s. The scene with Pacino at the end... where's he's putting all his valuable possessions in the drawer and he leaves it cracked for his wife... god, what a perfectly crafted scene. Even with Michael Madsen's atrocious performance, this is still a great movie with an incredible character arc for Brasco and a great performance from Pacino.

                  • Since 2010 is quickly approaching and everyone usually makes the decades top 10 or 100 movies, but I think the actors deserve a little love. I never see top 10 acting performances so I thought I'd put a list together, but I could not, for the life of me, keep it to ten performances.

                      • Impressive List. Just seeing the title of Syriana reminds me of how much confusion that movie put me in. I just did not get it.

                          How much screen time did he get compared to Bale? The lead I assume?

                          Would you call Al Pacino the lead in Donnie Brasco? It's Depp's movie, but it was marketed with Pacino as the lead... and the movie is about DONNIE BRASCO... not Lefty.

                          Was Brad Pitt really the lead in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford? No. It's Afflecks movie and it's a story about Robert Ford. Ledger is a co-lead in The Dark Knight.

                          That was not the point of the post either.

                          • Well he won Supporting Actor, so atleast according to the Academy he was not in a lead role.

                              The difference in that movie is that the movie is about Brad Pitt's character, and that is not true of The Dark Knight really. And both Bale and Eckhart got more screen time, and Oldman may have gotten more as well.

                                Yes, he won multiple supporting awards for that performance. The Academy doesn't pick who's lead or supporting anyway.

                                Personally, I don't see it as a supporting performance. The Joker stole the show. It's basically Ledger's movie and he has as much screen time as anyone in the film. Lead performance.
