Re: 100 actors you cannot stand

31. Ryan Gosling This is kind of an unfair nomination since I have been able to stand him, just not lately. That much. I think he's seriously out of his depth with the stuff he is cast for. When he's trying to be cool (Gangster Squad) he's ridiculous (especially compared to the rest of that cast), w...

Re: (very) old movies

Re: The Lord of the Rings - Extended vs Theatrical

Re: 100 actors you cannot stand

8. Leonardo DiCaprio. This guy plays the same character over and over. So boring. Wish he did something outside of his comfort zone. You mean like non-silly accents? I see a lot of comic actors mentioned here, which is not surprising. You gotta find the comedian funny in the first place in order fo...

Re: Worst Film of 2018?

I'll go first. I haven't seen a lot of films this year, but so far the worst film of the year for me was A Wrinkle in Time . I've loved Duvernay's previous work, but this really disappointed me; with a bad script and poor casting decisions it was ultimately a completely boring, unengaging film. It ...
