C'mon guys you have to give Nickelback something.
They are definately the best artist with that particular name.

If you can't tell a 4 and 7 from a 9 and 10, then I'm afraid I can't very well take you seriously either sir.

Christ.

I just saw The Road. I am not the least bit ashamed to say it made me cry. It's really depressing.

Whether he's an assh*le or not is not important to me. Russell Crowe is considered to be one and I think he's a very good actor.

There's one actor that people absolutely delight in calling him terrible, who's unfairly, universally singled out as the worst actor today - Keanu Reeves. And guess what, I was never one of those people. Sure, he's not a great one, can be very inadequate and clumsy sometimes. But he has something that Cruise doesn't have - even when he's terrible there's always an honesty and truthfulness at the core of his acting, some kind of childlike innocence. That makes him far more watchable for me than Cruise. That's when I can see the charisma instead of acting ability.

The point is - I can forgive 'woodiness' and clumsiness in acting, but I can't forgive fakeness.
tom cruise is good in the right role--seen magnolia? i think you would be hard-pressed to call his acting in that film 'bad'.

For something like the 5th time. Very funny, very well-written stuff - Kevin Kline's character in particular is absolutely hilarious in it.

I've seen Magnolia. This scene is supposed to be Tom Cruise's big Oscar moment. For me, it epitomizes everything I said about his acting.



Now, I would like to stop talking about Tom Cruise. I look like a hater. (maybe I am). But, somebody is always quoting me and I have to further explain my thoughts on him. In the end, I am very well aware that our reactions to certain actors are always in part very subjective.

This is a genius film. It really exposes the rational thought neglect that most of the world suffers from. WATCH IT!

who said that scene is supposed to be his big oscar moment? because it's sad and sappy and sentimental? i prefer him in that film giving his lectures, and during the interview. i think he proves himself as a fine actor--pta has a knack for getting very strong performances.
