    Al Pacino is a hack at best, he's never stopped playing Tony Scarface. Hooo-aaaaahhhh.

    Robert De Niro is extremely versatile though, still a brilliant actor. Alas i think with his age he's not taking the risks, cop movie, romantic comedy, copy movie, etc etc. Don't think he'll be doing another Raging Bull.

    Dennis Hopper was never a good actor, he can only play himself, a crazy mofo doing crazy stuff. Gotta love him though, he's the dad you never wanted.

    Anyhoo they're the good actors, there's plenty of dross that still make appearances that need put down, robert redford for one, harrison ford for another.

    Harrison Ford's career got severely hampered by the fuss he kicked up over Bladerunner. He never really got a serious interesting role again, it was all action/thriller type stuff. He's never been in an Oscar winning film, let alone won one afaik.

    Yes because he clearly plays "Tony Scarface" in Scent of a Woman, Heat, Donnie Brasco, The Insider, Any Given Sunday and Insomnia. Have you actually seen these movies? Although I do agree he's a shouter in movies like the Devil's Advocate, but I think he's just trying to live up to what he's known for, plus in that particular movie he has to make up for Keanu's lack of acting.

    Watching Al Pacino these days is a horrible experience! He hasn't stopped shouting since Devils Advocate.

    He is, like, so nay!

    I really can't agree with this thread and I demand Kal-el deletes it.

    If you really think he hasn't stopped shoutin since Dog Day you haven't seen Glenngarry, Glen Ross, 'Looking for Richard', Angels in America, Donnie Brasco: the list is endless.

    Know nothing n00bs the lot of ya!

    I can rememeber VERY shouty scenes in Donnie Brasco and Looking for Richard...

    I do concede recently he seems to have got the balance right, but it was definately Dog Day Afternoon in which he discovered his shouty voice.

    Do you mean to say that he played very different characters in those movies? They were pretty much all alike, even though he may have not shouted a lot.

    I dunno, there is variation and you can't just blame Al, blame his agent*, blame the writers, blame the directors, I mean he's being type cast as well and he has been less shouty recently.

    *For you information Spanky I am not his agent (if i was would I be posting on t'interweb? or using all that cash to get goldigger ladies and cars and other stuff that costs a lot).

    You missed out then. If you couldn't appreciate the drama in The Insider I'd rather you just put me on ignore to save any further embarassment.

    For both of us.

    Latin, I'm sorry, but we have different definitions for variation. This is variation. I don't know if you like or dislike Pitt, anyway, don't take that into account, just take a look at how different his roles are in films like Twelve Monkeys, Snatch, Fight Club, Thelma and Luise etc.

    Heat=Shit. We agree. The Insider though, too wordy for ya was it? No enough helicopters? Too 'close' subject matter?

    Seriously though. Insider was/is a brilliant movie, from the Direction through to the music. (has soundtrack)

    Heat = one of the best action movies since the 70ies.
