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

Feature Presentation…
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

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

    Loves me some Sandy! One of my faves that rarely gets mentioned is Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood. I love it when she bangs the phone on the table. Haven’t seen The Proposal or Blind Side yet.

    Great list…I love Kevin Bacon. I think he’s a very under-rated actor.

    Haha, Air America! Dude, I haven’t thought of that movie in for-ever!!

    You have similar tastes in actors/actresses as I do. Hmmm…except Kevin Bacon. There’s just something about him that bugs me. Oh well, such is life.

    I always loved Robert Downey Jr. in Less Than Zero. But his career, like his personal life, has been quite up and down. I enjoyed his Golden Globe speech this year – very humble and funny.

      I did see Sherlock Holmes and I really liked him in the role. But I thought he was awesome in Tropic Thunder & The Soloist.

    Okay, you’re invited to my house for movie night. Love Sandra Bullock. I imagine now she won’t be doing many romantic comedies. She said she wanted to do more serious roles.

  5. Lenore says:

    I’d say Gwyneth Paltrow.

    The good: Hard 8 (aka Sydney), Emma, Sliding Doors, Proof, Shakepeare in Love, Sylvia

    The bad: The Pallbearer, Great Expectations, Talented Mr. Ripley (movie great, Gwynnie bad)

    The ugly: Shallow Hal (why?!),

  6. stacybuckeye says:

    I’m not a big Paltrow fan, but I did enjoy Sliding Doors. And I didn’t even hate Shallow Hal (even though I wanted too!) I do want to see Sylvia.
