No one has a terrible taste in films you like what you like whatever anyone says including me
I thought horrible bosses was ok, certainly worth a watch.
Friend of mine refuses to watch anything with Scarlett Johannson. He has a major hate for her. Have no idea why. So no Iron Man 2, no Avengers..though he did sit through The Prestige.
I don't like her either. She's only ever been good in roles that are not too far removed from her own personality. There is something self-conscious about her that you often get with lesser talented actors. She was the weakiest link in The Avengers. I'm not happy that she has been (mis-) cast in an adaptation of one of my favourite novels, Michael Faber's Under the Skin.
Unlike your friend actors I don't like don't put me off from watching films though.
Yeah but have you considered her arse?
Let's just say, she's not my type.
+1 for Jim Carey and Will Ferrell.
Whilst I'm at it, can I voice my hatred of Jimmy Carr? I know he's predominantly TV but REALLY annoying and not at all funny. Had to turn off a recent episode of 'A League of their own' because of that toe rag!
She doesn't work for me either as an actress or for her looks. I wouldn't avoid a film with her but I don't see the attraction. I much preffered the Shield woman on the air base. Her acting was fine and I found her much more atractive.
She's effortlessly well within the top one percent of beautiful females wandering about this planet, and she's won a BAFTA and been nominated for several Golden Globes, so some folks think she can act too.
Yes, I'm wondering as well.
Do you like every actor who's won a BAFTA or been nominated for a Golden Globe?
I don't know I've not met them all. Though me and Scarlet, we go way back.
As I said above, I think Johansson is fine when she plays characters close to her own personality: priviledged, contemporay young women, men are drawn to for her looks, like in Lost in Translation. The problem is that she has next to no range as an actor. You put her in a different period or as a fantasy character and she looks ill at ease. As to her being one of the most beautiful woman "wandering about this planet" I hadn't realised that we are all supposed to be attracted to the same type now and that her "arse" makes her a great actress. She doesn't do it for me.
...and as brian s said, there are plenty of undeserved award winning performances.
You know what I mean. Someone could win the Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe several years in a row and it wouldn't improve my opinion of that person. We all have our indivdual tastes. I base mine on what's onscreen rather than how many awards it's won.
Well, they do say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I would say if you don't find her beautiful then I think you're well in need of a trip to the opticians.
Take this as a first warning from the beauty police.
Presumably you mean as an actor, not as a person?
I didn't really start this thread for people to vent there hatred towards certain actors
I find it a little odd to miss out on good movies because you dislike the actor actors involved in it .
From what I've read so far it seems to be a dislike of a certain genre of movie some actors work in rather than the actor that make you not want to watch them ?
Or actors that play the same part whatever movie there associated whith .
I have doubts whith the last as Geoge Clooney has picked some great roles and doesn't play George Clooney!
But I've come to expect Johnny Depp to play the same role in every movie I see him in now ?
I think the saddest thing is Nicholas Cage who has become almost a cartoon character of his previous roles . But this might be because he owes a lot to the tax man and is now going through the motions .
Sorry, sorry - I need clarification
Did Scarlett johansen win a Bafta, or her arse?
I'm assuming the backside is Scarlett but I'm also assuming that images of that nature are verboten on the Forums however nice they maybe.
Did you delete your own post or was it a mod?
Bugger it 'twas me and in bad taste sorry you guys are to quick .
Scarlett's backside and a b****r remark so close together. You're really going for it.
Your killing me no sorry I believe this is self inflicted suicide
I want to see the pic !!
I'll mourn you if they ban you from the site. You've given me such a damn good laugh tonight.
Too late mate.
That hole I've dug can you see a bottom! sorry end ! Or whatever ?
