This thread should begin and end with Marlo0n Brando in A Street Care named Desire.
I came here to post this exact thing. He is my favorite actor, and that is the best movie I've ever seen.
Gary - Team America: World Police
In all seriousness, it's gotta be DDL in There Will Be Blood.
Players play, tough players win.
Some performances I think particularly good:
Ian Mckellen-the lord of the rings
James stewart-it's a wonderful life
Mark ruffalo-13 going on 30
Tom cruise-minority report
Tim robbins and morgan freeman-the shawshank redemption
Haylee stansfield-true grit
Christian bale-the prestige

Choke on that, baby!!!
Tom Cruise does not know how to act. His best movie was Born on the 4th of July and that was decent at best
To each his own though
4 states of being in the cannabis society ------------
Which one are you??
gHost in his Jeep escapades - the tension is palpable.
You're wrong, the guy is eccentric to say the least, but Tom Cruise is an incredibly talented actor. It's hard to see if you watch movies like Mission Impossible but in the War of the Worlds, when he's in the basement fighting over the axe with Tim Robbins, you believe he wants that axe and you don't see the same out of Tim. Just a small example, but the guy is a very convincing actor.
Check out Magnolia and get back to me.
seen it. One of his better performances, but when you stack him up to a ton of other actors, he just isn't even close.
He overacts and trys to steal scenes, I just don't think he is good at all. He's done some decent movies and he has some decent acting performances, but there is no way he is an elite level actor along with Tom Hanks, Jimmie Stewart, De Niro, Pacino, etc.
Tom Hanks in Castaway.
A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber. His portrayal of Lloyd Christmas was art at its finest.
Jack Lemmon-Glengarry Glen Ross
I don't know about a single performance but three guys who always seem to be able to morph into characters are:
Johnny Depp (edward scissorhands, blow, willy wonka, public enemies, alice and wonderland, donny brasco)
Russell Crowe (gladiator, a beautiful mind, master and commander, cinderella man, the insider, LA confidential)
Sean Penn -despite being a douche in real life, he is a great actor (Milk, 21 grams, mystic river, falcon and the snowman)
I am always impressed with their ability to make me forget who they are by becoming the character.
Kel Mitchell in "Good Burger"
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Great choices. Especially DDL in Gangs of New York. He was intimidating as hell in that film.
My choices would be...
1. Marlon Brando - Apocalypse Now
2. Robert Deniro - Taxi Driver
3. Leonardo Dicaprio - The Aviator
I'll add some more later.
How about performances by an actress? I'll second Bette Davis in "All About Eve" and Charlize Theron in "Monster" mentioned above. Some others:
Meryl Streep in Sophie's Choice
Elizabeth Taylor in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Faye Dunaway in Network
Sally Field in Places in the Heart
Jodie Foster in The Accused
This conversation may come to an end when Lincoln comes out and we get to see Daniel Day-Lewis portray Abraham Lincoln. I'm really looking forward to that.
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
Sigourney Weaver, Aliens.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
I would add Phillip Seymour Hoffman to this list
Don't post poop!
I'll agree with this
Jessica Tandy -- driving miss daisy
Annette Benning -- American Beauty
Dianne Keaton -- Annie Hall
Katherine Hepburn -- a lion in winter
Hilary swank -- boys don't cry
Daniel Day-Lewis in Gangs of New York is my pick
Haters gonna hate!
