Re: Overrated actors and actresses

I can't think of a good movie that Julia Roberts has been in except Ocean's 11 and Hook but in both she was irrelevant to the movies and could have been plugged in with any famous actress.

Re: Overrated actors and actresses

Fair enough. Truth is, there's likely more people that like it then those that don't. Just not my thing.

Ah, yes! She's a good one. Throw her on the list.

I like The Mexican quite a bit. Charlie Wilson's War is an OK movie. She was pretty good in Erin Brockovich. Yeah, that's all I can think of.

He is overrated as a comedian, but I'd say Sandler is appropriately rated as a shit actor.

This is a tough question

Males: Leonardo Di Caprio, Christopher Lee, Denzel Washington
Females: Halle Berry, Catherine Zeta Jones (she was, now she isn't), Natalie Portman

this is acting-praise-wise; not popularity. The popularity over rattedness of certain actors is outrageous today. When Channing Tatum pulls in more viewers than Giovanni Ribisi; fuck a lot.
Leonardo Di Caprio has become one of the more dependable leading men. Like Depp, he can carry an entire picture. He was exceptionally good in The Aviator. And I agree with you on Ribisi, he's great.

Shes a good actress. If you need convincing, study Dogville. More? Margot at the Wedding; The Others; Eyes Wide Shut.

Donnie Brasco, Blow, Public Enemies, The Rum Diary... he is quite watchable. He has the charisma to carry entire films, even shitty ones (why I dropped The Rum Diary). Its an uncommon quality.

See, it depends on the director. A strong female character director like Holofcener got a solid performance out of her. She seldom gets a bad performance from one of her women.

DDL isnt within worlds of Oldman.

Was The Iron Lady a comedy? She had to have been mocking Thatcher. Give me Julianne Moore in that role, any day.

Mine:

Angelina Jolie. The worst actress of her generation.

John Malkovich. I find him excruciatingly difficult to watch.

Cate Blanchett. Cartoonish in The Aviator and Im Not There, yet both roles yielded her critical claim.

Meryl Streep. HAM! I cant see a Steep film without thinking shes overcooked it.

If one person rates Keanu Reeves, hes overrated. Near dreadful.
