Hugh Hefner buys circuit city corperation

2002-04-02 12:09:18 AM  
Wow, that would be the PERFECT list only if the Three Stooges were ranked much lower.
2002-04-02 12:10:19 AM  
where's Wil?

moreover, where's Iggy

Next up on Retro Crush: The 350 Actors of All Time
2002-04-02 12:11:20 AM  
What hell? I don't see Christopher Walken as 23, I'm sorry. He's at least top 10.
2002-04-02 12:12:08 AM  
Where the hell is Jethro?
2002-04-02 12:12:26 AM  
JOE DON BAKER! Mitchell had to be one of the funniest MST3K spoofs ever. He was a total jerk but he had that catchy theme song, who could hate a guy with a catchy theme song?
2002-04-02 12:13:24 AM  
Toshiro Mifune #22

Every movie he's in is worth seeing.
2002-04-02 12:14:04 AM  
Robert Mitchum and the Three Stooges above Samuel L. Jackson? Those retro crush people better fall to the ground and thank god Samuel L. don't feel like going over to their office with an AK-47 right now.
2002-04-02 12:14:09 AM  
DeNiro!! Pacino!!!
2002-04-02 12:15:35 AM  
yeah and they forgot O.J.
2002-04-02 12:16:01 AM  
Steve McQueen only at #9? He should at least be in the top two.
2002-04-02 12:16:13 AM  
How about the next list be the 100 most annoying logo fonts of all time?
2002-04-02 12:16:31 AM  
And why in hell is George Kennedy not on that list?

Joe Don Baker is on there. Ernest Borgnine. Cesar frickin' Romero. But no George.

This is a travesty.
2002-04-02 12:16:34 AM  
What, no Wheaton?

2002-04-02 12:16:44 AM  
DeNiro should be top 10.
2002-04-02 12:16:55 AM  
Fark Retro crush... All wrong.
2002-04-02 12:18:00 AM  
where is jason lee of mallrats, chasing amy, vanillia sky, and....kissing a fool...ok forget the last one
2002-04-02 12:18:48 AM  
I'm sorry, Mickey Rourke, Cesar Romero and Val muh'fugin' Kilmer ahead of Sinatra? WTF?
2002-04-02 12:20:05 AM  
Why the fark is is Ed Norton #99? Huh? Huh? I want some answers!!
2002-04-02 12:20:36 AM  
the picture they used for andre the giant is from the posse sticker.
2002-04-02 12:23:15 AM  
Did I miss Elvis Presley's name on the list? He always played a guy named Rick.
2002-04-02 12:23:51 AM  
Eyelessloki: Don't forget Dogma, Mumford, Almost Famous, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, and, of course, Enemy of the State and Heartbreakers. :P
2002-04-02 12:24:24 AM  
I must be mistaken, even though I went over it several times, several, several times. Someone please tell me I'm just a blind idiot and I missed George C. Scott. He's got to be there, he played freakin' Patton! What the hell did Pee Wee ever do? Oh wait, I remember, no reason to revisit that again .
2002-04-02 12:25:12 AM  
They could not have f'ed up this list any worse if they tried!
2002-04-02 12:26:04 AM  
They forgot to note amoung 'coolest' that Boris Carloff narrated "How The Grinch Stole Christmas".
2002-04-02 12:26:43 AM  
Clint should have been number one. Outlaw Josie Whales speaks for itself.

Sean Connery: And I'm the cock of the walk!
2002-04-02 12:27:09 AM  
I agree, Ed Norton was wayyyy underrated here, John Malkovich, too... and how was DeNiro not in the top ten? althought the only tope ten choice I see a legitimate gripe about is the 3 stooges... wtf? give them 99 for honorable mention... they get hit in the head repeatedly, so what?!
2002-04-02 12:28:16 AM  
this list is even worse than the top 5 dvd list... somebody's gettin paid for this one.
2002-04-02 12:28:42 AM  
Where was Steve Buscemi?
or Joe Pesci? (Goodfellas)
or James Woods
I only agree with about 70% of this crap list.
2002-04-02 12:29:19 AM  
Overall this was not bad.

The real question here is, What would CAP say?
2002-04-02 12:29:50 AM  
It dosen't say anywhere that this list is in any particular order.
2002-04-02 12:30:01 AM  
DeNiro's played the same role since 1982.

parting shot
2002-04-02 12:30:20 AM  
pure drival.

these lists are created to anger me.
2002-04-02 12:30:32 AM  
Damn. Elvis did make it. What a farking joke.
2002-04-02 12:30:53 AM  
what?! no keanu reeves?
2002-04-02 12:30:58 AM  
WTF? No Strong Bad?

2002-04-02 12:31:52 AM  
Errol Flynn rates all the way up at #21 and Cusack doesn't even get on the friggin' list?

Somebody needs a beating.
2002-04-02 12:33:01 AM  
If you're a guy who gets a thrill from watching Elvis "acting" in movies:

Take off your moms clothes, climb out of the basement, and go see a therapist......
2002-04-02 12:34:35 AM  
steve mcqueen beats 'em all. he was a badass in every damn film he made and then he had the grace to completely crash and burn before he got old.
also, where was michael caine?
2002-04-02 12:35:06 AM  
CUSACK!! Better Off Dead and The Sure Thing alone merit a top 50 mention, and then when you throw in Grosse Pointe Blank and High Fidelity, you're easily into the Top 20.
2002-04-02 12:35:39 AM  
mel gibson 55? Bruce willis 41? come on. and jackie chan didn't even make the list. how many of these people save stunt men's lives, and risk their own on a regular basis?

and i agree, no steve buscemi or james woods? bah!
2002-04-02 12:37:03 AM  
Just me or do only the first 2 pages work?

79-70.htm is page cannot be displayed.
2002-04-02 12:37:21 AM  
I also noticed the glaring lack of Buscemi, and it is indeed a dark day because of it.
