How about Claude Rains?

I liked him in Notorious, I can't really remember his performance in Casablanca being extraordinary though.
Probably my favorite part of Casablanca is just the witty banter between Rains and Bogey.

Well, a cinema snob would probably agree with you there.

Oh, round up time already? Thanks, Tobbii for a clear cut list.

Titanic - I thought it was normal to dislike that movie? I don't know anyone who did, for the acting, anyway. Lemme say this. James Cameron does his thing on that one. The world (or rather, the ship) is beautifully made, and you feel the size of it. But the story was stale as day old bread.

I never saw Fire Down Below... I've seen a porno titled fire down below, but...

I prefer the original Die Hard, not because it's necessarily the best, but Alan Rickman? I'd go gay.

Spirits Within was a perfectly find movie. To this day, I don't know what anyone doesn't like about it. And with the creation of XIII, no one at all can say it doesn't feel like Final Fantasy. As for Advent Children, no one can blame you for hating it. A few well made fights, some halfway decent voice acting to tell the conclusion to a game that only dipshits think is the best in the series. Tifa v Loz is the best fight in the movie.

I like both versions of House on Haunted Hill, and I thought the retold version of Nightmare made Freddy more sympathetic. So it depends on what you're in the mood for.

No opinion on Bond anything.

Ah, Kevin Smith. How to best do this. Rapid version, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, JaSBSB, Jersey Girl, Clerks II, Zack and Miri, Cop Out.

I like Scream, in that it's a parody, through and through, of shitty horror tropes. I hate that it in and of itself spawned Scary Movies. In fact, I hate Scary Movie so much, that when Leslie Nielsen, god rest his soul, left this world, the first thought I had was, well, at least he escaped those shitty fucking movies.

I actually liked Kevin Smith's Dogma. And the Clerks TV series.

I couldn't think of a universally accepted 'medium' color. I like part of Dogma, hate part of Dogma. I think Garofalo would have made a better Bethany than the chick they did pick, I thought it was overall good, but the parts that seemed lacking to me just sorta dragged. There were a couple of parts I didn't think were necessary. Like, okay, hey, the angels are going to the church, go run up your credit card, go to a gun shop, buy the fucker out and do your duty. But that's not a Kevin Smith flick, ya know? The bar scene seemed, aside from killing Jason Lee's character who's name escapes me, entirely superfluous.

I loved Clerks TAS.

Dogma is the only Smith I've seen all the way through. Seen bits of Clerks but I just don't get it. Same with a lot of his other films.

I will grant that Dogma is one of his weaker outings, so I can see where you're coming from.

I think it certainly helps to see the whole movie, as a lot of the jokes in a Smith film tend to reference earlier dialogue from the same movie.

I know, i'm a horrible person.

I thought The Wrestler was a good film but I hated it because it totally took a giant shit on the business. Way to make Wrestling even MORE unpopular.

I don't like Kubrick (EXCEPT Dr. Strangelove. That's one of my favorites., probably because, unlike 2001 and The Shining, it's more than a bunch of weird vignettes), Inception was ok, but the actual dream part was boring, and Cabaret was a waste of my time. On a positive side, the first Evil Dead is my favorite, and Death Proof actually isn't that boring.

I thought Napoleon Dynamite was boring and dumb. Guess it just wasn't the movie for me.

Calling Napoleon Dynamite slow is misleading, as that implies that something actually happens in that movie.

I suppose that was miss wording on my part. But you are correct, it was quite a pointless movie.

I was once called an "unintelligent movie watcher" because i saw thru the bullshit of that film. It's made to make t-shirts and have catch phrases. That's it. There's no real plot. There's no real build. Fuck, there isn't even a likeable character in the whole deal, and there's an incredibly racist angle to the entire film that NOBODY BRINGS UP.

That's very understandable, the Zucker movies only got bad around when it was just one Zucker.

I really like Uwe Boll. Just finished watching In the Name of the King. Its mediocre, but I don't know why, I really enjoyed it. As I have most of his films upon second viewing. When I first saw BloodRayne and House of the Dead, I really hated him, but as I've gotten older, and apparently dumber, I've grown to really like his movies. The strange thing is that from most interviews I've seen of him, even he doesn't take himself seriously. He knows he isn't making Oscar worthy flicks. You should seriously check out some of his movies with directors commentary. They are a riot.

Can't wait for Blubberella. Its gonna be great!

The first 30 some minutes of In the Name of the King was alright. It was until they had the forest fairy's which sent it downhill, I don't remember Dungeon Siege having stupid fairy's.

I gotta tell you, personally, Dungeon Siege really got the same quality of a movie the game was. True it didn't have fairies, but the game wasn't really good either, in my opinion that is. But Uwe still rocks. He is a master troll, too.
