Monday Movie Meme- The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

Feature Presentation…

This week’s movie topic is all about Highs & Lows…I’m sure you have a favorite actor/actress. Someone whose work you admire enough to overlook, or even forget completely, those performances where they weren’t quite on their game. Or perhaps there is someone whose portrayals are usually forgettable, but they have surprised you with a gem here or there.

I had a hard time deciding on which actors to choose, so I glanced over the list of recent Golden Globe winners and decided to go with that.

Sandra Bullock – Love her and will watch everything she’s in, but they can’t all be good, right?

The Good-The Proposal, The Blind SideWhile You Were Sleeping

The Bad- Premonition, Forces of Nature

Robert Downey Jr. – I always find hin compelling and I’m not sure why.

The Good- The Soloist, Tropic Thunder, Wonder Boys

The Bad- Air America, Johnny Be Good

The Ugly- The Pick-Up Artist

Drew Barrymore– I find her charming.

The Good- Ever After, Wedding Singer, ET

The Bad- Mad Love, Batman Forever

The Ugly- Poison Ivy

Kevin Bacon– He’s always solid and I can count on a good performance.

The Good- Murder in the First, Apollo 13, A Few Good Men

The Bad- Hollow Man

The Ugly- Loverboy
