You're right. He's not the go too "great actor of our time" for plebs. He was especially good in Heat, Jack and Jill, and Righteous Kill.

Okay anon you got one
>>
>>64539844

the real reason is that it's harder to hype actors as Actors, because literally all of them have to take roles in franchise blockbusters in order to become movie stars.

you can't become a box office draw by appearing in stuff like One Flew Over The Cuckoo's nest any more, because those films don't stay in cinemas long enough for word of mouth to spread and would just get pirated if they did.

Tom Hardy is the best working actor today.
Prove me wrong.

How could everyone forget Christian Bale?
>>
>>64539844
They stopped casting actors based on their acting ability but instead cast actors based on how tall and handsome they are
>>
>>64539844
Because people who are good at what they do are too proud to be the soulless kikes in charges' bitch.

Because young actors generally have to be handsome and uncontroversial with perfect teeth and hair.

They're fags who picked drama and dance class in high school with no intention of fucking the girls there, not men who didn't know what to do after WWII ended.

It's always been about that. They're still unattractive actors.

cape shit
>>
Gary Oldman is still acting
>>
>>64539844
Because stars wars, minions, jurrasic park, avatar, furious 7 and capeshit have proven that audiences don't give a shit about good acting. Good acting doesn't make bank.

If you want great acting, you have to look at theatre.

>>64540271
No one was good in TDKR but considering he's the main character and has zero memes means he did a pretty good job all things considered.
Also for some reason it's a pretty well acclaimed film so it wasn't bad for his career or anything. Fuck, you're right.

he mumbles a shitty story in both The Drop and The Revenant and I must admit it's pretty bad lmao
>>
>>64540320
>He hasn't seen the greatest movie ever made
>>
>>64540301
I love Mad Max, but that's how he acts in pretty much everything. He's incapable of not acting like a macho badass.
>>
>>64540342
Well, it is more about spectacle than anything I guess.
Also, it's mostly kids going to a lot of movies these days.
>>
>>64540271
Salvation

Bronson.
>>
>>64540363
That was a great line, and was delivered great. Hating on based Walken in a based Cronenberg film.

Nothing special or amazing but there is no flaws
>>
>>64540425
You got me. He showed his chops in Bronson.

>>64540271
The New World
Knight of Cups

It would have been good if not for the amateur crew

What a Fucking idiotic post

>>64540479
And that shitty romcom with Chris pine and Reese witherspoon shows its not all dark and brooding
Plus he does well to hold and engage you in that film where hes driving down the highway at night talking on the ph, name escapes me at the moment
>>
>>64540454
I totally agree.
Though that line makes me chuckle a bit now and then because of how unexpected it originally was.

jesus christ, I, a heterosexual male, would sooner kiss jake than maggie.

The only way to be a truly amazing actor is to be classically trained
Every actor today thinks they can just be a method actor and really study their characters without ever practicing delivery and drama

Literally every great actor dreamed of being a Shakespearean actor, actors these days think they're "artists"

The perfect example of this is Mad Men
John Hamm was praised for the way he studied the role. He said he really "became Don Draper". He said the character took a toll on him because he was so dark
And he was easily the worst core actor of the show

John Slattery gave no fucks about his character and was easily the best actor on the show
