Russel Crowe. L.A. confidential
Benicio Del Toro - Traffic
Jim Carrey - Truman Show


Benicio is great in Usual Suspects and 21 Grams. I really agree with Russel Crowe though, Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind and Master and Commander aren't too great, though The Insider was great.

Jim Carrey, I have to say I love Dumb and Dumber, and I have a feeling Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind will be great.

Gwyneth Paltrow in "Hard Eight"
Vin Diesel in "Boiler Room"
Winona Ryder in "Beetlejuice" (and "Lucas", okay and maybe "Heathers" too. But that's all.)

Nothing special any other actress couldn't do, and better. The way she cries during the diner scene with Freeman in "Seven" always bugged me.

I dunno about Royal Tenenbaums, she seemed pretty perfect for that role, I'm not sure many could have played it as well. As for seven, for some reason, I remember the diner scene as a good part of the film, I'll watch it again to see what you're talking about.

Uhhh, have you seen "The Hunted"...he is laughably horrible in it. It's fun as hell to watch and make fun of though cause it's so bad, you should rent it. I won't spoil anything for you in case you haven't seen it but he does something near the end of the movie that is so out of left field and so so so wrong for his character that it had me and my cousin literally with tears laughing on the floor, it was the funniest, dumbest thing I've ever seen, it seriously could have been a deleted scene from "Dumb and Dumber", really though, it's the fucking funniest non-comedy I've ever seen.

Burt Reynolds - "Boogie Nights" (I can't believe I think I'm the first to mention this)
Ben Affleck - "Dazed and Confused"
Richard Gere - "Days of Heaven"
Ethan Hawke - "Before Sunrise"
Russell Crowe - "LA Confidential"
Kevin Costner - "JFK" and "A Perfect World"
Jennifer Lopez - "Out of Sight"
Brendan Fraser - "Encino Man"
Jennifer Aniston - "The Good Girl"
Wesley Snipes - "Jungle Fever"
Julia Roberts - "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind"
Laura Linney - "You Can Count on Me"

Then yea, I'll agree with Basinger/LA Confidential and Sharon Stone/Casino too, they definitely surprised me.

agree completely with affleck.  however, crowe has given some awesome performances in the insider and virtuosity...and he has a certain rogueish charm to gladiator and a beautiful mind...without him those movies would have been nothing, and any good qualities thy have i'd attribute to his star power and acting ability...

as for brendan fraser, i love his work in Bedazzled and Gods and Monsters.  For me, the former is a touching comic performance that uncovers a lot about social anxiety and is pretty virtuoistic in its portrayal of different personalities and people...and gods and monsters portrays a keen insight into frustrated male heterosexuality...also, school ties is a touching, shouldabeen-starmaking role that i think fraser handled charmingly...

laura linney, i feel, is an excellent actress...she was riveting in primal fear, and her scenes in truman show were hilariously dark...

if you don't like these actors, you don't like em.  that's fine...just my 2 cents.
i wanna lick 'em.

Reese Witherspoon -- Election
Jane Fonda -- China Syndrome
Tim Robbins -- Shawshank Redemption & Hudsucky Proxy
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.
