Lists by gary-hill57
Let's face it, everybody doesn't like the same movies. I hated Avatar many people loved it and that's okay by me...but here is a list of personal favorites many off the beaten path for whatever reason. In no particular order, here goes: Please note...since first posting this list I have started putting them into order...more or less, that probably applies more for the first 50 movies as of April 2 than the rest of the list. I plan on adding to and reordering the list as time permits, plus I'll add my two bits where appropriate. My only hope is, if nothing else, that it gives you some ideas for your own viewing.
Listed below are, in my humble opinion, the very best actresses over the past five years. You are more than welcome to agree or disagree as long as your arguments are cogent!
T thought it might be interesting to make a list of what one would call B-list actors and actresses, the type that rarely are in Academy Award type pictures but churn out the "quick to DVD type movies, often doomsday, horror and cheap sci-fi. I am sure there will be lot's of disagreements and I welcome any disagreements as usual. Let the fun began....I'll try to list them by popularity as opposed to most to least talented.
Character actors often don't get the due they deserve and often times it is hard to distinguish a "character" actor from a lead "Actor." Sometimes they are both depending on the film. But I consider te following 75 or so the best character actors that are currently plying their trade. Arguments are welcome and I may even change my mind if presented with an appropriate argument. Please make sure to check my other two lists. My list MOVIES YOU MAY NEVER HAVE HEARD OF BUT DESERVE TO BE SEEN has gotten over 73 comments, almost all positive, so if you are looking for a good movie that you may not have heard of this is the place to go. Many thanks for those looking and/or leaving comments on my lists.
This is my list of the fifty very best male actors plying their craft since 1990 to the present in descending order. I weighted it towards most recent performances back. So five years ago it would probably have had most of the same actors but a different order and five tears from now it will probably evolve more. De Niro is my favorite actor of all-time but is he number one with the above parameters in place? Find out below. They are not necessarily my favorites or most popular but what I believe after watching well over 1,000 movies - whether I like them or not - are the very best 50 actors for sheer on screen brilliance! You are more than welcome to disagree and debate the list, but as with any list it is my opinion. Nothing more, Nothing less. I'll post my favorite actors in order in a different list. So please feel free to disagree but I would appreciate no bashing since it is just my opinion. I hope you enjoy and welcome any comments.
