Only if Malkovich has to speak in that terrible Russian accent from Rounders the entire time.

I want someone to make the supermovie with Keanu, Cage, Malkovich and Affleck. 3 hours of some of the most awesome acting ever seen by man. Then have Shatner as story narrator.

Another "actor" I really hate is that whiny little *** that played in Superbad and Juno...that skinny brown-haired faggette. My God, talk about someone who plays the SAME charactor in every movie. I have seen him in other roles but can't remember which movies.

On a side note of bad movies...the other day Escape from L.A. was on...I laughed ....a lot.

He was funny in Arrested Development. Then he made 5 movies where he played the exact same character.

Connery may have masked Cage's suckiness.
Connery's abilities cover for Cage. Has Connery made a bad movie? Or are people affraid to say so? Kinda like is there a bad Chuck Norris movie? People dare not say it.

Raising Arizona thought it was a great move and it deserves a 3rd mention To this day I still try to shoot lizards off rocks with a sawed off shotgun.

Bwhahahaha....win.

They should do a super movie with Cage and Travolta. They should be mortal enemies and beat the crap out of each other. THEN when you thought it could get no more awesome, they trade bodies. So you get to see Travolta channeling Cage, and Cage channeling Travolta.

That movie would be full of awesome!

Think you could get Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton in that movie with Cage, Malkovich and Affleck?


Nick showing some depth!








Saw RA it in the theater when it came out. Wasn't sure what the hell I watched that first time. Grows on you like a son of a bitch. Many lines are part of the wifes and my regular vocabulary now.

Being type cast (which 70% of actors are) doesn't make someone a bad actor. Take Clint Eastwood, or Christopher Walken for example.

One of the best actors? Gary Oldman.

Yeah, but in a 40 year career as varied as Young Frankenstein to French Connection to Get Shorty to Unforgiven you are bound to have a couple clunkers.


Oldman is one that gets lost in his roles though. He has credits I had know idea it was him in the roll.

I like Robert De Niro. He plays many similar roles but he's still a badass.

Edward Norton is pretty good too.
