    As I remember it was about the complexities of friendship. Minor stuff if you're into action movies.

    It didn't seem that complex. I'm a huge fan of dramas and this one didn't really do it for me. Sure, the acting was top notch, but the story didn't grab me. Good actors, weak script.

    Perhaps if they hadn't cut Costner...

    Ya know, I hate to bring him into this but John Travolta? I just watched part of "Battlefield Earth" last night, that movie was horrible, John as a 7+ foot alien with Forrest Whitaker as if sidekick / assistant.

    I nominate the entire cast and crew of the trainwreck that was "The Sound of Music" live broadway type thing on tv last night. It made blood leak from all my bodily orifices. That was for the good parts.

    I was Waiting for someone to say Travolta. Even in his best film, (Pulp Fiction), he is wooden and stiff.
    Sean Kelly is a god, sure a god that I can't understand a word he is saying, but a god nonetheless.

    Probably the most highly overrated actor in history. How this guy gets work is beyond me. He was pretty good in Swordfish but only because the character fit his acting style.


    Don't know if he has been mentioned but Adam Sandler. He should have to pay to act.

    Swordfish was only descent because of Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry.
    And Adam Sandler? what a joke! I rate him right up there with David Spade. Who is just above the acting ability of your average chimpanzee

    For most of my life I would have answered "Kevin Bacon" to this question. Early in his career he played Ensign Pulver in a television production of "Mister Roberts." His performance was incredible bad; over acted, poor comedy timing, and he barely knew his lines. My wife was directing the same show for the post theater at the time and the artillery grunt playing the role was funnier and more believable than he was. He was so bad I avoided watching him in anything for almost twenty years. A year or two ago, an interesting review convinced me to watch him in "The Woodsman." Sometime in the almost two decades separating the two roles, Kevin Bacon learned how to act. Frankly his performance in the movie left me speechless. There are few actors who could play a despicable character like a pedophile sympathetically and yet he pulled it off incredibly well. It's a hard movie to watch because of it's subject matter, but well worth it just to see him.

    Johnny Depp was great in "Once Upon a Time in Mexico." John Wayne played one character his entire career, but was still good in "The Cowboys, The Quiet Man' and 'The Shootist." I think "The Searchers" may have been his best job in a film. Kevin Costner had "Field of Dreams" and Cage "Raising Arizona," but I can't think of a single flick I liked that had John Travolta in it. I know "Pulp Fiction" has become something of an icon, but the script, the direction, and his fellow actors carried him through it.
    People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there's something wrong with him.

    I watched Elysium the other day. Jodie Foster's performance was astonishingly poor. Worse than Contact, way worse. Remember Kevin Costner's accent in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves? Jodie's was worse. I'm surprised they didn't overdub her like they did Andie MacDowell in Tarzan.

    My wife and I watched 'Elysium' from Redbox just last week, and we had the same reaction as you. We also thought Mr. Copely did a better job in 'District 9', of which they should get the sequel started already!

    I had heard rumors of a prequel, but Id bet that D9 ends up being a standalone movie

    I hate 99.999999981769% of everything Adam Sandler has ever appeared in. You can't even call what he does "acting", he's just being himself...which is a crime for any actor, but when you're being Adam Sandler it's a major felony

    ...however, the 0.000000018231% of Sandler's repertoire which is commendably watchable is the movie Punch Drunk Love. There was something about that vehicle that just fit perfectly with his personality, and the net result wound up surprisingly poignant. Perfect casting there imho.

    I agree mostly but have to admit that the Waterboy is a guilty pleasure. That movie always cracks me up. The rest of his stuff not so much.
