John Hurt

High Points: 1984, The Elephant Man

Low Points: Immortals, V for Vendetta, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, King Ralph

I personally liked V for Vendetta, but I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who did...


what? this guy is retarded right out of the gate.

/also no mention of 1984?

Actors. They like to eat, you know. And also some want to buy a new house or car.

I haven't seen Battleship yet, but it's a movie based on Battleship I am psychic and can tell you it sucks.

/I happen to agree, I just think this kills his credibility
//that and the V for Vendetta comment

Oh no, John Hurt and Liam Neeson decided to take roles in a couple of movies intended to be giant blockbusters, and made enough money that they could take roles in smaller, artsier films without ever worrying about their families' well-being.

verbaltoxin: Actors. They like to eat, you know. And also some want to buy a new house or car.


yup. on all of those shiat movies, they probably made more money than all of their oscar nominated movies combined.

/ I'd do it. of course, I'd use a pseudonym, not have a publicist, and not do publicity work, fake my own death after a few years. so it would never happen. not worth the faustian bargain of fame for a little financial security.

Sean Connery doesn't act. Sean Connery simply is Sean Connery, and that make the world a better place.

"Error establishing a database connection" was a pretty lame movie but I don't remember what good actor was in it??

jeanwearinfool: V for Vendetta was bad? Did I miss the memo?


yes. the movie is on the whole pretty terrible; I loved Agent Smith as V, and I loved Padme's scene in the schoolgirl outfit but much of the film just kinda drags and most audiences agreed that it just... wasn't very good.

/loved the comic.

What about Gary Oldman? He did some real stinkers in the 90s. Lost in Space anyone?

he is still doing stinkers. Red Riding Hood is a crime against cinema, Amanda Seyfried's unholy hotness excluded.

Raul Julia in Street Fighter is an especially painful memory for me.

Typically a bad movie has more to do with bad directing combined with bad editing. I don't know why so many people feel the need to blame an actor when a movie is bad.

That being said, I thought several of those movies listed where worth watching. They may not have been worth a full priced trip to the theater, but for $1 at redbox its hard to not get your moneys worth out of any movie.
 
2012-04-25 10:57:51 AM
Aggrogate is blocked at work, so I can't be sure, but I have to assume that Ben Kingsley is on the list for BloodRayne. I can't think of a more accomplished actor in such a shiatty movie.

King Ralph, which remains the greatest movie with John Goodman second only to every other movie John Goodman has ever been in.

Great movies that feature John Goodman

The Artist
Monsters Inc.
O Brother Where Art Thou
Bringing Out the Dead
The Big Lebowski
Raising Arizona

Also, WTF is bad about V for Vendetta?

Poor editing can destroy a movie. Case in point- Kingdom of Heaven. The theatrical release of that movie was painful to watch, but the director's cut is a really great film.

Coloman: Since the site is farked, is Bob Hoskins in Super Mario Bros in it?


Super Mario Bros wasn't actually awful, just real bad. And the best actor in that movie was Dennis Hopper(though, I'll be damned if Leguizamo isn't capable of being a great actor), not Hoskins.

Apos: Raul Julia in Street Fighter is an especially painful memory for me.


More guilty pleasure because of the ultra-scene chewing as the antagonist, like Jeremy Irons in Dungeons and Dragons.

I wouldn't say V sucked, but it wasn't great. It was slow as shiat and it really lacked emotion(which I think is the damning part of the whole thing, as I didn't care what happened to V or Evey).

nothing in V compares to the chase scene in Matrix Reloaded. If only the rest of the film and the next sequel weren't flaming turds.

You know, I have no idea. I really liked V for Vendetta, and the hate it gets sometimes boggles my mind.

Quoted for freaking truth. I actually liked the theatrical release of the movie, but the director's cut was easily twice as good. Whoever decided to cut out fully a third of the movie needed to be slapped repeatedly upside the head and forced to write "I will not cut out vital subplots and character motivation from films" over and over.

i didn't feel that way. just that the movie was really boring for the most part. we were promised a matrix-y movie with lots of action and cool set piece violence.... it HAD some of that but mostly it was people talking and it was BORING.

jeanwearinfool: V for Vendetta was bad? Did I miss the memo?



Yes, it was farking terrible. It would have just been lousy (in particular I found it trite and cliche) if it was an original property, but the fact that they so badly butchered such a great work of fiction, and mangled the story and ideology which made it so great, made a bad movie a total travesty.

The most that could be said for it was it was stylish, kind of like a cinematic shiny bauble. But it was atrocious otherwise.

And it's hard to believe that Hugo Weaving is a badass fighter and that a dozen cops will all shoot him in the chest and no one will shoot him in the head.

/mostly, though, Hugo Weaving is Agent Smith in everything. Erlond? Sorry, Agent Smith. Human beings are a disease. V? Sorry, Agent Smith. Find them and destroy them.
 
2012-04-25 11:24:40 AM
I can see V for Vendetta not being everyone's cup of tea, but it was critically and commercially a big success, so listing it as one of Hurt's "crap" movies makes me seriously question this author's credibility.

I actually have that on DVD. In all honestly I only got it to see Michelle Rodriguez though.
