Arrr...as always...taste...the Cusacks...I always love their work...especially together...High Fidelity was SOOOO good largely because those two, as real life siblings, looked entirely natural in their roles.

Milla...hmmm...yeah...I'd have to say she surprised me by having talent...gorgeous, of course...but I always was worried she'd be a typical model turned actress, and it wasn't like that at all.

Brad Dourif, the voice of Chucky. That's all anyone needs to know.

I knew you'd agree with Milla. I for one thought her personality was kinda wild. I don't know if you've seen a lot of interviews with her, but a while ago(that being in terms of years) she seemed to be always "drunk" when she appears on Late shows like Jay Leno and Letterman. Yeah, she seems to be "you only live once, so I'm going to enjoy life and do everything" kind of girl. Not to bad I don't mind. Stands out...

Over-rated:
Orlando Bloom: he can't act. simple as that. he has four facial expressions, then a couple variations on #2. (I counted.)
Elijah Wood: I don't know why, there's just something about his acting, I can't place what, that drives me insane.
Russell Crowe: only slightly over-rated, good actor, but not enough feel for his character. You don't exactly feel what his character is feeling. (if that makes any sence at all.)

Under-rated:
Bryan Dick: very under-rated. I felt for his character, he played death scenes well, action well, and all the stuff inbetween too. Stayed very in-character too.
Paul Bettany: really gets a feel for who and what his character is, somehow truly *becomes* that character.
Christopher Lee: no one cares about his acting cause he's always evil. very good actor.

Back from the dead

Thanks for waking this one up, Richard...

Overrated:
Heath Ledger
Brad Pitt
Orlando Bloom
Ben Affleck

They all bring in the ladies, but not much else...


Underrated:
Jason Statham
Woody Harrelson
Hugh Jackman

The occasional shitty roles have really not helped these gentlemen...

Overrated:

Russell Crow
Denzel Washington
Jude Law (only Cold Mountain was truly appalling though)
Sean Penn

None of the above are bad actors, per se, they're just not that great.

Underrated:

Vincent Cassel (a French Sean Penn but amplified)
Richard E. Grant (best drunk ever)
Brendan Gleeson (Oscar-worthy for 28 Days Later)
Paul Bettany (see Gangster No. 1)

Really? After I saw Gattaca I couldn't get enough of him.
