Really? I guess he did make some duds, almost seems just for the paycheck. But was part of some pretty good ones also.

Shark Tale is decent
Meet the Fockers has a few good laughs
The Good Shepherd was also decent
Stardust was very well received
Everybody's Fine was good
Limitless was good
Silver Lining Playbook was extremely well received

Oblivion.
I actually yelled out...
"That was so stupid..."
After the film ended.

The Matrix Revolutions was also really pointless.
In fact...
There was no need for Matrix Reloaded either.

I think his last great performance was The Score...
Back in 2001.
Ever since then...
He had not really given a great performance...
And it seemed that he was just going through with the motions...
Just for a paycheck.

He is still a good actor...
And there are still some good performances here and there...
Such as Limitless and Silver Linings Playbook...
But compared to the performances earlier in his career...
There was a big difference.

Still...
I am amazed that he was able to give so many great performances...
For so long.
Usually...
For method actors...
Because they are so immersed in the roles they take...
It takes great emotional...
And sometimes even physical...
Tolls on them.
While they do give great performances...
They also get burn out...
And after a while...
They really cannot perform anymore.
For example...
Rod Steiger was great in the 50s and 60s...
But from the 70s onward...
While he was still a good actor...
It was mainly due to his experience as a veteran actor...
And he was never able to give an excellent performance again.

Some method actors compensate...
By taking fewer jobs over the years...
So that they do not overexert themselves...
And they can keep their performances fresh.
A great example would be Daniel Day-Lewis...
And he only takes a project every couple of years.

De Niro...
On the other hand...
Works very frequently...
And he takes multiple projects per year.
For him to give great performances...
Sometimes multiple times in a year...
For over 30 years...
Is really quite amazing.
He was an anomaly...
And although I think he is burned out...
He left many great performances.

The lack of sentence structure is hurting my brain.

The Score was a great movie.

The Eagle, I think it was called? Channing Tatum was in it. That movie was downright stupid.

Also, Eragon. So much potential and absolutely done wrong.

Superman IV: The Quest for Peace...otherwise known as the movie that killed the Superman franchise for 20 years.

And frankly, I don't know why they make movie versions of old TV shows just to basically make fun of the show. If people love the show, why would they want to see it ridiculed? And if people don't love the show, why would they care enough to see a movie? Just stupid. Brady Bunch, Scooby Doo, and countless others...next up appears to be Mr. Peabody and Sherman, but we'll see.

I can usually watch just about anything if I am doing something else while it's on (grading papers, packing a shipping box, etc.), but Resident Evil: Retribution was the biggest waste of 2 hours of my life that I can recall.

Batman and Robin

I remember just sitting there stunned, wondering why ANYONE thought that movie was a good idea in any way.


Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

I know it's low-hanging fruit, but still. You have all that time to come up with a chapter in the greatest movie trilogy ever, and you lay that kind of steaming turd? Why? Why even embark on the project with a concept that badly flawed?
