>Unpopular opinions

Dustin Hoffman was a better actor than Robert De Niro

That is pretty unpopular.

To be honest, no /pol/ shit intended, his giant Jew nose was always pretty distracting. And his acting was a bit iffy at times. Little Big Man, for instance.

Aw man this is hard. Dustin Hoffman was so... I don't know, natural as an underdog type of character which he consistently played. Watch him in Straw Dogs for example. His meek portrayal makes the final gunfight so utterly satisfying, because the whole movie Dustin has successfully gotten the audience on his side. However, I think that likability might be a detriment because thinking about it, with a few exceptions Hoffman has largely played himself in his seminal works. The only time he wasn't a likable underdog type was Lenny. Even in Death of a Salesman he had a charming scumbag demeanor. I gotta give the edge to DeNiro, who I think has shown a lot more versatility, playing both the despicable lowlife and the dignified business man with deft precision. I recommend The Last Tycoon to you all.

"Pretentious" is a buzzword that means absolutely nothing. In plebtalk it means "I can't handle challenging or artistic films, so I'll berate it for trying to be anything but tripe"

There is a funny court room scene in the film Sleepers where De Niro dominates Hoffman with his pure acting ability.

That wouldn't be an unpopular opinion in the 70s. Today, among a lot of (younger?) people he's not regarded as high as he once was. Probably because he didn't play as many flashy characters as Pacino and De Niro.

Probably because he completely stopped giving a fuck after Rain Man. Seriously, after that the one thing he did that touched his earlier stuff was fucking Luck.
