Quote from: cbrad4d
It may seen like they are overacting in Gladiator, but I think it comes with the nature of the piece, which is very dramatic, very theatrical and almost Shakesperean.


 :shock:

Ok, first of all, I'd like to see you defend Gladiator as Shakespearean. Yes, Shakespearean acting is very melodramatic (who knows if he intended it that way, or if Shakespearean acting really hasn't evolved. There are great Shakespeare films that are completely not overacted. See "Titus") but you need the language to back it up--and Gladiator's writing is some of the most hollow, pretentious fluff that I have ever been exposed to.

Gladiator is heavy-handed


You're right there... And when a filmmaker goes that route and takes that risk, it's all or nothing... and Gladiator is nothing...

Melanie Griffith = nails on a chalk board

"I've got a head for business and a bod for sin."

Sorry, honey, only if that business imports/exports air, and having that much plastic surgery done to a body is a sin.

Sandra Bullock.

She's sucked "the girl next door" schtick dry.

Oh yeah... I'm definately seconding that one.

She gets me angry.

Also Denzel Washington.  Very annoying.

Denzel lost me in that stupid "John Q." mess. Were we expected to believe that nonsense? I've totally written him off, and I see no redemption in the near future.

I, too, found this tough...

But Ben Affleck (never seen a movie because the trailers are enough), Matt Damon and Josh Hartnett.

Don't like those football types oh no.

And yes, Sandra Bullock is really mediocre.

Helen Hunt. Overused and obnoxious.

Damon Wayans. Marlon Wayans* at least cancels him out, though.

Robin Williams is so damn annoying and so in need of validation that its sad and pathetic.  Did anyone see him on the critic's choice awards.  He virtually hijacked Jack Nicholson's acceptance speech.

Also, Russell Crowe is pretentious and not that talented, in my opinion.

Pretentious is thrown around too much now a days. I hate Russell Crowe as next as the next man, but there is no doubting he is talented go rent "The Insider", the movie he should have won the Oscar for and then tell me how he isnt "that talented"

Well, you can be talented and pretentious at the same time.
