Crop And Save
I have seen these actors at work and they meet all the criteria deemed necessary to play the role of the super-spy James Bond. The necessary qualities include: An overall positive reaction the public will have based to the actor's overall charisma and convincing screen presence, the necessary physical strength and stature to fight and move physically and be bad-ass enough while doing it, isn't overly popular or already a mega hit movie star, meets the basic requirements that author, Ian Fleming would require of: British born, British accent, charismatic & chiseled good looks to melt the ladies, can pass the look-good-in-a-suit test, and has the proven acting ability for action scenes, character-driven serious scenes, subtle humor, quips and banter scenes, and of course the notorious romantic scenes.
NOTE: There a some great actors that are perfect for the role, but didn't make the list because they were missing a few critical requirements: i.e. age (too old now), not British, etc..
I would list obnoxious, extreme conservative celebrities too (as I don't take sides with either if extreme) but they don't convey the outward hatred like these libs do. Plus, they are rare and mostly ousted by the Hollywood socialist click-ish cult anyway. So for that, only the worst behaved get the list. NOTE: This is in no way to suggest that these hateful individuals should give up their own rights to their own opinion ---not at all. Just don't voice it on the air when people are tuned in to watch "entertainment," or shout it from a podium only because you came to blindside a captured audience. In that regard, you are taking advantage of platforms most of us don't have, and those on this list suck as people for doing it.
The list begins with a few all-time personal favorites, in somewhat order, but then becomes completely random the further down the list and ending with dozens of movies that I find a stretch to even consider "collectible" but I happen to own because they were "good enough" combined "cheap enough" to buy.

Aside from it's weak points as a movie, reminds us we have nothing on the unknown powers of the Universe
Numerous plot holes and very weak script aside, it's one of the most thought-provoking subjects in a movie I've seen in long while -- and on such an interesting subject --Us. We humans. What are we? What are we all about? That we only use 10% of our brain capacity is a myth, the science world has corrected this, and the movie jumps around the facts and talking points, but still this movie is good for raising so many questions, and to help one think outside of the only physical world we see with our eyes --and keep us thinking ---so it's amazing to explore that at least, through this movie. For those who can't recognize or appreciate the deeper-meaning side of such a subject, and only find brilliance in a movie filled with computer-aided phony action graphics run amuck, then stop right now. Your money will be better spent buying a ticket to Transformers or something and all of the brilliance in dialog and subject matter it contains. Nobody will hold it against you. We ARE still evolving after all.
Brilliance because it's different --is good enough
Writer/Director, Richard Linklater, again applies his artistic style of keeping every scene real to every day life, with plenty of real humor, real feelings, real drama mixed in, allowing you to attach yourself to the experience of watching this film unlike no other, entertained NO LESS, as any level of tears and laughter you experience will prove that. It leaves you with plenty to think about, as the dialog itself is styled in the director's trademark of providing the characters engaged in insightful or philosophical topics --this brings about the experience of walking out of his movies drawing your own conclusions. As to how much enrichment you wish to take from Linklater's movies, it's up to you -- but no doubt, you WILL feel and you WILL take something --- hence, the beauty of his films.
Best compliment: As long as this movie is, at 2 hours 45 minutes, it could have been even longer and Richard Linklater's movies will still keep you interested.
Worst thing to say about it: It's a movie that shows the process of growing up, sure, but chosen from a viewpoint of a family struggling with very specific issues, as if that is the "typical" presentation of a family, I don't think so. But perhaps if a more common family had been chosen, that doesn't have alcohol, drugs and divorce issues to contend with, the mass movie goers might find that boring to watch, I don't know?
The stand-out brilliance of this film is it's pioneering approach of 12-years of filming a single movie! Amazing. And great to watch, just for that alone.
The performances of Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette (playing the role of the parents) are excellent. These two steal every scene, and award worthy for ANY award-giving institutions out there --including Oscar.
The main character of Mason, played by Ellar Coltrane, with a project like this, could have had the production team faced with an older actor later on who might not have had the talent to act as a teenager (little could they be sure of this at the start of such a lengthy project) but he can act. His performance actually improves with age --leaving you liking the character even more by the end of the film.
All I can ask is what original work do you have planned next, Linklater? Because, like your Before Sunrise series, A Scanner Darkly and other one-of-a-kind original movies, I very much look forward to your next project. I sense a lifetime achievement award for this director's film making. Those filmmakers of the likes of Woody Allen have NOTHING on this guy.
Biased Fools as Industry Critics
Well, now we know the politics, unbalanced viewpoints and shamefully biased tendencies of the critics... thereby discrediting every dang one of them who voted ridiculously low on this movie. Out of nearly 40+ movies currently out in theaters, this movie has THE (let me repeat: THE lowest average Meta Score rating from the critics. Think of how many movies can be horrible, outright poorly made out of over 40, and this one is still rated the lowest, at the very bottom. It is a good documentary at it's worst; one that lists truths after truths -that records do not deny. But the left chooses to overlook this for the sake of their own genocide agenda to discredit this nation's history and those who built it, and yet, to these critics, it's the worst movie out of over 40 listed and currently in theaters. Anti-American, biased fools, in a business where you are expected to be neutral and unbiased. You're a disgrace to your position in the industry. Your name is now in print for everyone to discredit you.
