I see stars

I just finished watching the Nicholas Cage movie "Bangkok Dangerous".
Not bad, but a messed up ending.

I have always been impartial to Nick Cage, err, Coppola. I don't love him, don't hate him. This got me to thinking about actors that I like, and others that I wish would just go away.

Actors that I like:

Charleton Heston. One of my all time favorites.

Jason Statham. Abs like mine, plus, I dig the accent.

Jet Li. That man can do some crazy ass stunts. My genitals hurt just thinking of trying some of them.

Brad Pitt. In fight Club and Snatch Brad , not Legends of The Fall Brad.

Will Farrell. In Anchorman, not Semi Pro. Nothing too deep, just like him when I want to laugh.

Nick Swardson. He has cameos in a lot of movies, but his best role is Terry on Reno 911, and and Jeff on Grandma's Boy. Plus, he has a fuckin' sweet car bed....

Kevin Spacey. Good in The Usual Suspects, and who really cares if he is gay?

Actors that I hate:

Jean Claude Van Damme. Need I say more? I get it, you can do the splits....

Colin Farrell. Whiny, and I'd kick his whiny ass like the whiny little rich puke that he is.

Any musician that "doubles" as an actor. Insert Jessica Simpson, Jamie Foxx, Lindsay Lohan, Billy Ray Cyrus, etc. name here.

Jonah Hill. Can you say type cast? "Here's your character. You're a large lovable loser with a potty mouth, who's always yelling and mad that you can't get laid."

Samuel L. Jackson. Why are you always yelling? It worked in Pulp Fiction, but that was like 15 years ago. Try something new.

This is a list of just a few people who really grind my gears. Feel free to add yours.

Can't help liking Tom Hanks.

Nicholas Cage was great in Raising Arizona, the first movie I saw him in.

Can't watch Tom Cruise.

I got really tired of Eddie Murphy, but love him as Donkey in Shrek.

I love Brad Pitt. Not in a gay way, but in a non-homosexual manly way. He was outstanding in Fight Club, Snatch, 12 Monkeys and completely under-rated in The Mexican. That movie is so great.

Also love Ed Norton and one of my favs is Tim Roth. That guy is incredible. I am glad to see he has a TV show coming out.

If you have never seen his movie with 2 Pac, check it out!

Great scene!

I second Jay Grey with the nod to Ed Norton. And I must say, you might want to give Colin Farrel a rethink after you see In Bruges, he was actually pretty good in that. Just sayin.
