Will his character have an inappropriate relationship with his sister?

The rumor mill has it that he's more into younger guys. Like, early 20's younger. Although I doubt he'd kick Daniel out of the bed, if you know what I mean.

Hardly, man. He was the closest thing that movie had to a "good part." Hammy, scene-chewing, just dicking around... He knew what a steaming pile it was, but he decided to just have fun with it anyway, and he came as close as anyone could to redeeming it.

I'm not really sure that Superman movie was 'bad.' It's probably worse than bad, because, I barely remember any of it. I remember sitting in the theater seeing the scenes go by one after another and thinking, 'I'm entertained, or I think am. Am I? I should be entertained. Everything on the screen tells me I should be entertained. What time is it? I wonder if Parker Posey knows how ridiculous her name is? Oh, stuff exploding! Hmmm, why would anyone want to build property on that barren island?"

And after leaving the theater, my overall reaction was, "Umm - okay." And then I proceeded to forget almost everything about the film over the following months.

Ah, back in the day when Hollywood filmed their T.V. series in glorious Vancouver, British Columbia on the cheap and Jonathan Banks had a little bit of hair on his head...

Back when I was in that barbershop quartet in Skokie, Illinois.

If there is one thing I can say against SKYFALL, its that Javier Bardem really seemed to be doing an
extended (and, admittedly, compelling and creepy) Christopher Walken impersonation as Silva.
 
2012-11-13 09:27:53 AM  
I've seen him in a couple of movies that I thought were kinda blah, but it wasn't because of him. Spacey's one of the very best actors there is. Very convincing, and the guy can play anything.

A Bond villain acting like a Bond villain? You don't say.

thecpt: Hell even horrible bosses was good.


He was actually quite disturbing in his sociopathy in that movie; even got his hands dirty. I call that a reasonable screen test, although I visualize him as more of a "white cat" villain a la the head of SPECTRE than another killer like Scaramanga or Silva.
 
2012-11-13 09:42:35 AM  
I think subby is off....Spacey did a lot of good work after The Usual Suspects...just not a ton in the 2000's....though I enjoyed him in Horrible Bosses (not a great movie, but Spacey was funny as one of the Evil Bosses).

Sweet, I'm not the only one.

The film itself wasn't great, I didn't mind Brandon Routh's image playing Superman, but wasn't a fan of his acting and the rest of it, as Cythraul said, was forgettable.

I've enjoyed the animated Superman movies much more than anything on the big screen.

Spacey was definitely the best thing in that movie. Brandon Routh was a cardboard cutout. But the absolute worst thing in that movie was the 12 year old blonde playing Lois Lane.

He had a James-Bond-villianesque name in Wiseguy: Mel Profit.

Lots of great talents turned up in Wiseguy: Spacey, David Strathairn, Jerry Lewis, Stanley Tucci to name a few.
 
2012-11-13 10:14:49 AM  
I can see him now as a new bald Blofeld petting a cute white kitty.
 
2012-11-13 10:30:26 AM  
While we're talking about 1980s TV, Kevin Spacey was also a Kennedyesque senator (he had a thing for chorus girls) in an episode of "Crime Story."

Great. Now I gotta spend my day trying to justify staring at a TV show from the 80's. Oh well, could be worse. Could be jonesing for "Full House."

The three bosses were the best part of that movie.

I can't believe no one mentioned Ordinary Decent Criminal. It's an Irish movie, but usually Fark is where I go to find out about movies. He is amazing in Ordinary Decent Criminal and even has 2 wives! I highly, highly recommend it. IMDB: Link

he's made a lot of really crappy movies, and he's played some really weirdo characters. He was a bad ass teacher in 21. A mild mannered teacher in Pay It Forward. Creepy as hell in Wiseguy, and in American Beauty. Really good in Glengarry and in Stare At Goats.

I'd watch that movie again because of that character. Without him, it would have been forgettable.

His career went downhill ever since we had to watch him jerking off in the shower.

THIS. Don't waste your time with Horrible Bosses. See the original and best dick boss in Swimming With Sharks.
