“ Armageddon, Incredible Hulk, LOTR, The Strangers. She sucked in all of them. Just an awful actress. Go back to making music videos for daddy. ” - SuperKent

“ Johnny used to be a good actor. Now everybody thinks he can pull off any role in the world, look at any new big budget movie and somebody will mention that he should be ___ character.

“ he had so many great movies in the 90's. Then he hit a wall, really really hard, and aside from Kick Ass, I haven't really enjoyed his movies in a very long time. Shame. Con Air, the Rock, Raising Arizona, Face Off, Gone in 60 Seconds were all good to great fun flicks. ” - SuperKent

“ Really, she's gonna be Cat Woman? She doesn't look the part. I hate questioning Christopher Nolan's brilliance, but after the snoozefest known as Inception, he's treading on very thin ice with me. ” - SuperKent

Morgan Freeman
With an authoritative voice and calm demeanor, this ever popular American actor has grown into one of the most respected figures in modern US cinema.

“ It was either her or Richard Gere. Gere has done Mothman Prophecies and Primal Fear, Sandra has done Speed and A Time to Kill. She was the supporting character while Gere was the lead, so he gets the nod. I still think she's attractive, not a fan of her acting anymore though. ” - SuperKent
 
19.
David Caruso
Actor, CSI: Miami
His low-keyed intensity, deep-voiced somberness, pale skin, puffy-eyed baby face and crop of carrot-red hair are all obvious and intriguing trademarks of TV star David Caruso.

“ It amazes me how he is the same person in practically every movie he makes, yet people still pay good money to see him. Yes he is funny, charismatic, charming, all that stuff. But he's almost always Will Smith in whatever role. Loved Independence Day though. Hancock......F"N Hancock. ” - SuperKent
