Okay, I'm exaggerating and being harsh, but I've seen him in 3 movies so far (Fast and the Furious, Boiler Room & Pitch Black) and for all I could tell, he was playing the same character.</strong><hr></blockquote>
And your point is?

Show me a classically trained thesp who looks that good in a vest, and maybe we can talk some more.

I knew Britney was in it when I agreed to go along, but I really didn't expect it to be that bad. Okay, maybe I did. It was so awful. I think we lasted around twenty minutes. Got free drinks, though.

I'm just happy they've stopped showing those awful, awful Pepsi ads before the previews.

You must be one his gajillion female fans, swayed by looks and blinded to the lack of talent. Just kidding, there's tons of bimbo actresses who's movies I've sat through just because they were in it. *cough*Reese Whiterspoon*cough*. She was awful in American Psycho, but at least she was in it!

You knew she was in it and still went?! Creepy. But only staying 20 minutes makes up for the blasphemy of going in the first place...I think.

Vin Diesel did the voice of the title character in The Iron Giant. An extremely excellent animated movie.
post #44 of 55
Glurx, The Iron Giant's speaking role amounted to only a handful of lines... "Roccckk" ... "Treeee" ... "I am not a gun." Not exactly Oscar best-actor material.

Pi?? OMG...how could anybody like that movie? The Insane Rabbi Posse was funny though, I guess.

I wished I had walked out of 'Any Given Sunday'. Unfortunately there was nowhere else to go at the time.

I've walked out of a few over the years:

- "Pee Wee's Big Adventure"
- "License to Drive" (Corey Haim and Feldman...I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL I WAS DOING THERE TO BEGIN WITH!!!!!)
- "Dirty Dancing"
- "Top Gun"
- "A Night In The Life Of Jimmy Reardon"
- "Short Circuit 2" (Don't ask...)
- "Three Men and a Baby"
- "Natural Born Killers" (Should've known better...)
- "Wolf" (Jack Nicholson can go to hell)
- "Rocky IV"
- "The Phantom"
- "Bridges of Madison County" (I had no business whatsoever even being there to begin with...)
- "Beverly Hills Cop II"
- "Nell"
- "The Accidental Tourist" (must've been drunk and/or bored that day...WHAT THE HELL?!?)
- "Alien3" (too depressing and a downer)
- "Anaconda" (Please...even Jennifer Lopez's sexy butt wasn't enough to keep me around)

I think that's it.

I damn near walked out of "The Phantom Menace" on opening night because I was so pissed off and in shock at how bad it was sucking. Everytime The Brat had a scene, I just sunk lower in my chair and tried to think about Carrie Fisher, Boba Fett and Imperial Walkers.

Hmmm... sounds like someone got confused and walked out of Lost Highway...

Great movie!

Hey, that was a good movie. Tim Burton's first. And really, it was a kids movie (with hidden adult humor)

- "License to Drive"

Agreed, anything with him sucks.

- "Dirty Dancing"

Yeah, I couldn't get this movie. Supposed to be in the sixties but the main characters looked from the eighties.

- "Top Gun"

Pure macho BS trash

- "A Night In The Life Of Jimmy Reardon"
- "Short Circuit 2" (Don't ask...)
- "Three Men and a Baby"

I won't ask. Never saw any of them.

- "Natural Born Killers" (Should've known better...)

Should have stuck around. I thought it was good...not great, but good (director's cut is even better)

- "Wolf" (Jack Nicholson can go to hell)

[i]This movie was strange, but I liked it. Jack's one line; "I'm marking my territory" was great.

- "Rocky IV"
- "The Phantom"
- "Bridges of Madison County"
- "Beverly Hills Cop II"
- "Nell"
- "The Accidental Tourist"

Never saw these in the theatre. Good that I didn't I guess

- "Alien3"

I was looking forward to this one. But I agree.

- "Anaconda"

Ana-what?

I think that's it.

Felt the same way. Funny, I guess I am the only person on the planet that liked Jar Jar Binks...he seemed to be the only one who could act.

I can't believe you walked out on half of the BEST 80s movies ever made!!!

I could quote lines from almost all of those movies.

Here's <a href="http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/printedition/calendar/la-000007420jan30.story" target="_blank">a LA Times article</a> on this subject.</strong><hr></blockquote>

Only one ever. In 1980, The Exterminator. Wretched, godawful, depraved. I don't even want to waste time writing about it. Here's the review from TVGuide.com: "John Eastland (Robert Ginty) is a demented Vietnam veteran who arranges gruesome deaths for street criminals; James Dalton (Christopher George) is the cop out to catch him. One of the most wretched of all film genres is the vigilante justice movie, and this must-to-avoid DEATH WISH takeoff is one of the worst of its ilk".
I stayed away from Exterminator II four years later. Here's the dope on that:"A very bad sequel to the equally bad THE EXTERMINATOR (1980) sees Ginty return as the ultraviolent Vietnam veteran who has gotten fed up with the sickos in society. The "plot" sees a gang leader with delusions of grandeur, "X" (Van Peebles), leading his sadistic followers through the streets of New York City torturing and murdering anything in their path. When Eastland's girlfriend (Geffner) falls victim to the gang, the vet reaches for his welding mask and flame thrower, and he hits the bricks in hot pursuit. This is a totally repugnant film that parades acts of mindless violence on top of more mindless violence to illustrate some sort of moral dilemma of our time. Believe it or not, there are songs that are supposed to be tongue-in-cheek funny, but they are just as repulsive as the rest of the film. Stay away".

You must be kidding right?

And as for him, he has made a real excellent film with 'Safe' and also his first film'Superstar' the life of the female member of the Carpenters done with barbie dolls.

For a good movie go rent The Red Violin with Samuel L Jackson. Brilliant. Kind of Momento-like.

I saw that in the theatre and while it was nauseatingly predictable, the one thing that kept me watching were the amazing sets! Jan de Bont or however you spell his name had some damn cool sets on that movie. But yeah, everthing else (IE: Acting, plot, story pace etc.) SUCKED!
