The Downfall: Christopher Lloyd is 74 years old.


This. There aren't a lot of a-list roles for a septuagenarian. He probably prefers to have work instead of sit around on his ass all day.

The only thing Linda Blair did worthwhile besides the Excorcist was get naked. She had a hot bod.

I worked on this movie with Christopher Lloyd. Its definitely B-grade (maybe even C) but all I can say is the guy knew what he was doing and having a blast doing it. Really great guy.

Ah, Christopher Lloyd. Such a sad case. I believe somewhere around 1994 is the dividing line between when he did good stuff and when he did crap punctuated by the occasional special guest appearance.

douchebag/hater: Interesting that so many here think that being in one good movie (L. Blair) or a number but then deciding to be in crap (C. Lloyd) means they are still 'A' list actors.

They aren't.

I like Lloyd but he has been in nothing but garbage for over 10 years now.

And what Blair appeared in that was even half-way decent other than The Exorcist?


great movie

now I'm sad that I just figured out that Christopher Lloyd of Taxi, Back to the Future fame is not the same Christopher Lloyd that produced Frasier or Modern Family.

Mugato: Tr0mBoNe: Star Trek 3 was not cheesy.

Star Trek 3 is much maligned. It was better than any of the TNG movies at least.


What the hell is wrong with you people? Star Trek 3 wasn't bad, but no way does it compare to First Contact. ST3 suffered from a serious pacing problem in the second half.

I didn't know that. I always assumed it was, and that was why he didn't bother with the quality of the roles he took.

yeah, I was reading all these "look at his IMDb listings!" and thinking "pft, whatever, he's making mad money off of Modern Family..." How wrong I was.

So, I finally broke down and watched the first one. Not bad, really crappy editing, cool premise though.

Been hearing for years how bad the second one is, though the synopsis on IMDb sounds pretty cool.

Is it worth even watching if I wanted to watch the whole series just to say that I did, or would that be an incredibly foolish use of 1.5 to 2 hours?

Christopher Lee has been in a lot of sh*tty movies.
But he's also been in a lot of good movies.
I think I heard he's been in more movies than any other living actor, so that's bound to happen.

How can Subby get a successful website making crappy lists? Deslidified for your enjoyment

don't bother. successful websites making "crappy lists" are actually run by real people trying to make a living and relying on certain factors on the web to get them enough hits to make ad revenue to pay their staff.

when you 'deslidify' something you're not only satisfying a small group of losers who live in their mother's basements and find it SOOO time consuming to click "next" in between bong hits and to satisfy your own whiny hipster "oh my god I have to click "next" to see more, but in actuality you're screwing said website.

if you don't like slideshows, then don't submit links or visit sites that post them or maybe upgrade from dial-up. it's that simple. there's already enough people out of work in this country.

If clicking entertainment links and articles is so tough on you to have to click "next page" for a few slideshows maybe you shouldn't be hanging around the entertainment tab so much. 

It's amazing how many Farkers piss and moan about the websites that submit stories to Fark under the entertainment category (and that their mods subsequently greenlight) yet they keep coming back every single day to see what's new in the entertainment tab. 

yeah, I said it.

If you watch the original version of Highlander 2, you'll see a complete waste of time, money, and talent. I hear the Renegade Edition of Highlander 2 is pretty good, as they cut most of the stupid out of it, but I haven't seen it

These are mostly B-list actors anyway. But show me any actor who's never been in more than one forgettable, crappy movie, and I'll show you an actor who's never been in more than one movie. So, for example, we get Robert Deniro in The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinklle, Meet the Fokkers, Analyze That. While these aren't all considered B-movies, they aren't considered good ones, either. Anyone remember Meryl Streep in Death Becomes Her? Anyone remember Death Becomes Her? She was also in She-Devil, It's Complicated, Mama Mia, and a bunch of other big movies that weren't considered very good. Go to IMDB and look up any great actor or actress and see how many movies they've been in that were crap or that you've never heard of before. That doesn't necessarily make them bad actors or even hacks, it's just the nature of the movie business.

That said, most of the people on subby's list are crappy actors. Sorry.

John Cazale is the only actor I can think of that has been in 5 or more movies and nary a bad one.

coeyagi: Ok, let's take an honest look at this. I will highlight the ones that are crap and will probably be crap.

Time, the Fourth Dimension (in production)

???? The Return of Captain Kidd (in production)
Gramps

Gets a lot of work though - bet it pays the bills and them some.

BTW, in what universe is Eric Roberts, the king of crummy 80s B movies somehow sliding from greatness? He started in "Another World" and I never heard of the shiat he's supposed to have been considered great in. He's number one on the list and I'm surprised no one has questioned this.

He made a better Willy Wonka than Johnny farking Depp, that's for damn sure.
This would have made an excellent movie. If I had the money, I would personally fund it just to see that it gets made.

IMDB says 274 acting credits, so probably. Those folks at Hammer Films could really crank them out.

Of course there's no way to filter out TV stuff. And that's not considering foreign language (Bollywood, HK stuff, etc) actors or porn stars. Peter North has over 1,600 "acting" credits.

I have seen many candid videos and some interviews and Mr. Lloyd really does seem to just be enjoying what he is doing. Who are all these armchair critics? Screw 'em. He makes his money in a way that 99 percent of us can only dream of. :-)

I would love to meet him in person. I'll bet he is a friggin riot.

No one is arguing that he isn't a cool dude.

No one, including yourself, should look at that list and say he hasn't been in a lot of dogshiat films.

Kaybeck: Christopher Lloyd's house was completely destroyed in a fire four years ago to the month. Dude needs the money.


He had moved all of his possesions out of it before it burned. Peter Weller is a friend and has a good story on utube about the fire. Look for the buckaroo banzai movie he and john lithgow have a Q@A after it. Moderated by Kevin Smith.

Not only that, but some of these people do movies for the fun of the role, not because of the paycheck. Hell, George Clooney does coffee commercials for some Swiss company so that he can still live comfortably, but do any low-budget/indie film that he likes the role for. I don't think Lloyd is doing it because he's irrelevant, or feels that he is. I think he just does it because he has fun doing that for a living.
