Reeling it in: 'Wild Card' worth a roll of the dice

...Card" is the latest Jason Statham action flick, a characteristic that doesn't necessarily bode well. Statham is a good actor, but he signs on to some truly terrible movies. What interested me is that "Wild Card" is based on the 1986 Burt...

Reeling it in: The big win went to the smallest of the Best Picture Nominees

...Edward Norton, as Mike, is delightfully obnoxious and a huge pain to work with, but backs it up by being a really good actor - just like the real Edward Norton. There are myriad parallels to real life in "Birdman," not the least of which...

Hercules a rare disappointment from "The Rock"

...career out of improving mediocre films with his winning personality and incredibly charismatic performances. He is a good actor, if not necessarily a great one, but he tends to boost the quality of just about any project he's associated with...

'Jumper' a good idea gone bad

...simpers, he whines, he pouts, and he just plain grates on you. For a long time, I've assumed that there's a good actor in there, just one in need of the kind of direction George Lucas obviously can't give. Christensen is also the star...

Affleck proves a man about 'Town'

...so long that it became easy to forget that he's actually an Oscar-winning screenwriter, as well as a pretty darn good actor. When "Gone Baby Gone" came out a couple of years ago, it won a lot of critical acclaim and made decent money at...

'Premium Rush'? Not so much

...not been the only one in the theater. You can't really shout out quips to yourself. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a very good actor under normal situations, is Wiley. While Wiley is an actual name that people have, people in our hero's world see...

Movie review: Superb acting just the start in 'Lincoln'

...encompassing portrait filled with small moments, quiet kindnesses and even moments of ruthlessness. You often hear of a good actor or actress that they do as much with their eyes as they do with their dialogue - Tommy Lee Jones is such an actor, and...

Movie review: Here's the dirt on the 'Snitch'

...carnage, but I think the casting of Johnson in this role was a mistake. He does a fine job, and I think he's a good actor, but it's a problem of perception. I kept expecting him to snap someone's neck and instead we'd just have another...

'Green Lantern' has reviewer seeing red

...authenticity in that character.The rest of the cast fares similarly, but the worst off is poor Peter Sarsgaard, a very good actor who first gets saddled with a terrible wig and scraggly pervy mustache, only later to be buried under so much freakish...

Film's intensity cuts to the bone

...and wildly violent gunfight with George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino in "From Dusk 'Til Dawn." Hawkes is a very good actor and has proved it with a quarter century of character roles. I'd love to see him take on larger roles in larger films...
