i'm really looking forward to Alejandro González Iñárritu's (Amores Perros) 21 Grams.

i think hes a little bit too hyped. i havent seen alot of his movies but hes great in traffic. apart from that ive only seen fear and loathing where he was okay and the pledge where i thought he was real fucking bad. actors who get noticed at the oscars allway get those retard roles. brad pitt sucked in 12 monkeys, so did russel crowe in a beautiful mind.

Interesting retard opinion, Phil lol
Off the subject for a sec, I thought Russell Crowe was great in A Beautiful Mind and how can we forget Romper Stomper......

Anyway, del Toro was great in Traffic and funny as hell in Fear and Loathing, though Fear and Loathing didn't provide him with the most demanding role.....

He'll flip you, flip you for real.

With the exception of Excess Baggage, he's consistently good. Traffic showed that he had more than gimmick under the hood and Way of the Gun showed that he was more intelligable than Ryan Phillippe.
I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my
dream. That's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a
straight razor, and surviving.

I've actually always liked him as an actor. Though I never thought he was something really special. He's got his own style, unlike many other hollywoodstars. He always gets the parts where he can act cool and just mumble his lines.  :-D Which is great!

Great performances include:

Snatch
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The Fan
The Usual Suspects
Traffic

Yes, it's true...despite his racial handicap, the man can act.  :wink:

Seriously though, he's a cool guy and a great actor. He only disappointed me once with The Usual Suspects...but then, I guess it wasn't really his fault necessarily. He wasn't the only dissapointment w/ that film...I think I've already mention how much I hate it.
