Lately, many movie bloggers have been doing an interesting meme which consist of 15 questions. I first saw the meme in Joel Burman I commented right away because we share the same dislike on certain actor 😉
However, I am not here to talk about actors/actresses that I hate or avoid…I want to talk about point number 5 in the meme: Actor/actress you always watch, no matter how crappy the movie.
This will be my top-5 post of the month. This top-5 is a bit special because I add 2 more and make it top-7 because I couldn’t narrow them down to 5 and the list is also not based on order of likeness, they are all the same…I want to watch (at least try to watch) ALL MOVIES BY THESE 6 ACTORS AND 1 ACTRESS…That is as long as they don’t play in a movie that mock my religion 😉
Let’s begin! (Alphabetically)
#1 Benedict Cumberbatch
I saw him in Sherlock for the first time and I immediately fell in love with his talent, he is the best Sherlock Holmes I have ever seen. He is PERFECT!! He is how I imagine Sherlock to be. From that miniseries, I want to watch ALL his movies/miniseries. Even movies that I don’t usually watch, such as Atonement, is now in my movie list to find…simply because he was in it. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find his works here 😦
I like the photo I have found, he is not as cute as that photo in Sherlock 😉
#2 Cillian Murphy
Do I need to say something about this actor? Hehehe I have already turned into Cillianiac…so, no doubt I will watch everything he had done. He was (and I believe will always be) brilliant in every movie he had done. I have to endure the painful boredom of seeing The Girl With a Pearl Earring just because he was in that terribly boring movie. I patiently watched such weird movie as The Edge of Love. And early this year, I dragged my feet to the cinema only to see his 2 minutes performance in Tron: Legacy. Fortunately the movie is quite fun.
I could proudly say that he has never been in crappy movies 🙂
#3 Keanu Reeves
Hehehe…I know that compare to the other 6 actors, he is the one with less acting talent and has so many crappy movies. But…I couldn’t escape his charm. Until I spotted Cillian Murphy, he was my number one most handsome man in the planet.
Yes, I will always watch his movies not because of his acting talent but because I want to wash my eyes with his handsome face 🙂
I have watched the horrid Johnny Mnemonic, the boring Sweet November, and even the ‘please-turn-the-DVDplayer-off’ Thumbsucker where he played as a dentist (or a doctor) that only appears for several minutes.
#4 Paul Bettany
Paul has the same history as Benedict. I saw him for the first time as Silas in The DaVinci Code, he was perfect as Silas…just the way I imagine him to be. Silas was my favorite characters in the book and he portrayed it really well (he would most definitely make it into my top-5 book characters turned to movies). His awesomeness as Silas had made me fell in love with him from the first sight. And I should mention that he is the only blonde actor I have ever like.
For him, I endure the ‘please-stop-me-from-throwing-the-TV-with-my-shoes’ Legion. Legion was the kind of movies I avoid to watch. A super ridiculous movie about Angels and God. Glad to see that Paul was hot in that movie 😉
#5 Sandra Bullock
I have no particular reason for loving her…I just simply adore her as an actress. So talented, so beautiful and so down to earth. I don’t care what people say about her when she won an Oscar, all I care is that I was happy for her 🙂
So far, her most ridiculous movie is All About Steve…that movie is really something I would stop before it ends if she was not in it. The character is weird and followed with weird story. Although I enjoyed writing 180 Degrees Sandy because of that movie 😉
#6 Sharlto Copley
Ah…Sharlto!! The newcomer that instantly captured my heart and my eyes. I was totally awed with his performance in D-9. The fact that that movie was his first time acting experience shocked me even more. He was too great as a first-timer.
When he was cast as Murdoch, my favorite characters in The A Team, I had doubts. I mean…it’s Murdoch!! But man oh man he pulled it off brilliantly. It added my admiration on him.
Right after I finished watching The A Team…I knew I will always follow this man’s career and watch whatever he has in stored.
#7 Tom Hanks
There are so many great movies with brilliant performances. My first love came from Forrest Gump. More and more great movies came pilling up after that. Check out this 10 list of his movies in 1990-2010 by Dan.All my favorite Tom hanks movies are there.
I haven’t yet found his crappy movie (I still haven’t watched all his works due to difficulty in finding them 😦
Some of you might think that I have peculiar way in choosing my actors and actress. Yes,I admit that I am not the kind of person that want to watch all movies by the very talented Merryl Streep, or the great Al Pacino, or any other living legends. What can I say…those living legends are great but they do not steal my heart. These 7 actors/actress (minus 1) are the ones who had captured all my attention with their great talent.
So…who are in your list of actors/actress you always watch,no matter how crappy? Do share it with me 🙂
