Hit me, Pent.
Pent gives me James Cagney.
James Cagney movie I loved: The Public Enemy--"My Tom is coming home to see me!" Yep. But not the way you expected...
James Cagney movie I liked: Yankee Doodle Dandy--J.C. couldn't sing, but boy could he act.
James Cagney movie I hated: The Oklahoma Kid--Like I said before, even great actors can't necessarily do westerns.
Honorable Mentions: The St. Louis Kid, Angels With Dirty Faces, Mister Roberts.

I will tell Mailcall he needs to send a new actor.
Oops guess I am in now too
Koko gave me Clint Howard
Clint Howard movie I loved: Nightshift. Pretty funny movie that he got a bit part in because of who his brother is.
Clint Howard movie I liked: Gung Ho. Underappreciated Michael Keaton movie from the mid 80s. Good stuff and a strong comedic cast.
Clint Howard movie I Hated: Addams Family Reunion. Like there needed to be more of these?
Honorable Mention: I couldn't believe this exists but he was in Silent Night Deadly Night 5. 5??!! To the writers and producers of the Silent Night Deadly Night series: What else could you do after the garbage day scene in 2? You quit after making movies after that because that is your fucking Guernica. Nothing you try will be better.

It's gonna be a while before mailcall comes back to hit you. But I guess by posting this, I've put myself back in the game too.
I was lugged Arnold Schwarzenegger, and yes I copied and pasted his last name.
Arnold Schwarzenegger movie I love: Terminator 2 - He was just bad ass in this movie as a cyborg protector of past John Connor. One of my first forays into R rated films.
Arnold Schwarzenegger movie I like: Predator - He hunted the predator and killed him, it was an excellent movie also. And as always, he was bad ass.
Arnold Schwarzenegger movie I hate: Jingle All The Way - Why would he be in a kid's film? Why do all of these bad asses feel the need to get kiddie after making such good manly films? This movie was turdstool.
Honorable Mentions: Total Recall, Conan the barbarian - These and Predator too could be in the movies I love category because I do. He was in so many great action films. Kindergarten Cop also, because it's one of the only family movies he did that works and has so many quotable moments because of his retarded accent.

The thread must survive, so hit me please!
MailCall gave me Hugo Weaving
Hugo Weaving movie I love: The Matrix, no competition, it's a classsic, and you have to love it.
Hugo Weaving movie I like: The Lord of the Rings:The Fellowship of the Ring. It's good, not nearly as good as the book, but still a good interpretation of it.
Hugo Weaving I hate: The Legend of the Guadians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole. I have not seen this, but I hate it, and I hate the fact that he was in it.
Honorable Mentions: V for Vendetta. As a movie it is good, but if you compare it to what Alan Moore did, it's just disappointing. Even though I try to forget they exist, the sequals to the Matrix do exist. He's in the Transformer movies, but I think they're kind of "meh".

Keeping the thread alive...
The Colonel has cooked up Bill Pullman.
Bill Pullman movie I loved: A League Of Their Own--Good story, Tom Hanks, and Madonna acting stupid.
Bill Pullman movie I liked: The Serpent And The Rainbow--Bizarre, and--really freakily--based on true events.
Bill Pullman movie I hated: Spaceballs--Not one of Brooks' best.
Honorable mentions: While You Were Sleeping, The Accidental Tourist, Independence Day

|J. Tithonus Pednaud||
One that I love: Fifth Element - It has everything! Babes, villains, action and sci-fi. One of those rare movies you can watch 1000 times and never be bored of.
One that I liked: Hudson Hawk - I know it gets a bad wrap but I spent most of the 1990's quoting this movie.
One that I don't like: Surrogates. It stinks!
Honorable Mentions : Sin City, Sith Sense, Die Hard, Planet Terror

While awaiting JTP, I will accept a challenge from the Captain.
Good choice, Cap - Joseph Gordon-Levitt
A Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie I love: Inception. 'nuff said.
A Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie I like: A River Runs Through It - I'm not ashamed to really like this movie. Plus, it shows Gordon-Levitt's acting chops at a very young age.
A Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie I hate: I won't say G.I Joe - The Rise of Cobra, because I didn't see the movie, although it probably sucks. For this, I'll go with Angels in the Outfield. He was still young, so he can be forgiven for this choice.
Honorable Mention: I said it before for John Lithgow, but the series 3rd Rock from the Sun was very good, and again showed his acting talent at a young age. (500) Days of Summer was also very good. I'm also hearing great things about 50/50. At the tender age of 30, I believe he has successfully survived the "Curse of the Child Actor".

ew I have to get one from MailCall
(I'm just playin, you're an alright guy)
One that I love: Beetlejuice, because come on.
One that I liked: The 1989 Batman, but that's mostly a nostalgia thing. I still have the vhs somewhere.
One that I don't like: Jackie Brown. More like Jackie BORING.
Honorable Mentions Ken in Toy Story 3, that one guy in King Of The Hill, and himself in Porco Rosso.
(Thank God the pickles are gone, I probably would've been marked down for liking an Annie-May around here.)
|Oct 2nd, 2011 06:41 PM|
Well, what the hell. I'm in again.
The Colonel ordered me up Bill Murray
Bill Murray Movie I Loved: Stripes. It has comedy, war, and Sean Young when she was still young and hot.
Bill Murray Movie I Liked: Caddyshack. A hitter's lineup of comedy greats. But Rodney stole the show.
Bill Murray Movie I Hated: Tootsie. Everyone else liked it. I thought it sucked. Good thing Murray had a small part.
Honorable Mentions: Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Mad Dog And Glory

|Colonel Flagg||Welcome Back, J Tithonus. Drop me an actor.|
|Sep 30th, 2011 10:34 AM|
|J. Tithonus Pednaud||I wanna play!|

Awaiting orders from the Colonel
and at the fact that this is probably the most "The Road to Wellville" has ever been talked about.
Fresh from HQ. My mission, should I chose to accept it, is Donald Sutherland.
Donald Sutherland movie I loved: Animal House. Fun fact: Donald Sutherland was asked if he wanted to be paid with an upfront sum of of 40k or 2.5% of all profits (this would of course include video sales on all formats). He chose the 40k, way to be champ!
Donald Sutherland movie I liked: Kelly's Heroes. I think every actor in the universe was in this movie, even the ones not born yet.
Donald Sutherland movie I hated: Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. Kind of stupid that a Final Fantasy movie would have nothing to do whatsoever with anything Final Fantasy. They would have been better served to tape a guy playing a Final Fantasy game.
Honorable Mention: Klute, MASH, The Dirty Dozen, The Kentucky Fried Movie, JFK, Outbreak, A Time to Kill, Instinct, Space Cowboys, Reign Over Me

Matthew Broadrick Movies I Loved: The Cable Guy - A very underrated and slightly disturbing film. One of my many examples to why Ben Still is better as a writer/directer than and actor.
Matthew Broadrick Movie I Liked: War Games - A great story, solid presentation and still relevant. I normally hate remakes but this story would be prefect for a modern adaptation now that hacking is more accessible.
Matthew Broadrick Movie I Hated: A tie between Godzilla & Inspector
Honorable Mentions: That movie with the pedophile principle.
BONUS! Matthew Broadrick movies I'm ashamed to like: The Road To Wellville (filmed in my city at the Mohonk Mountain House)
|Sep 28th, 2011 11:02 PM|
Yes, yes, I know. I'll take another, while I'm waiting for my next mail delivery.
Pent, you're killing me. Another nearly impossible task. Gregory Peck.
A Gregory Peck movie I love: To Kill a Mockingbird. Is there any other choice? He is Atticus Finch.
A Gregory Peck movie I like: The Guns of Navarone - another adaptation of an Alistair MacLean novel did not fail to disappoint me. Plus it has Zorba! How can you not like this movie?
A Gregory Peck movie I
Honorable Mention(s): Pretty much every movie he had been in. I'm serious, he was that good of an actor. Legendary. I recommend Cape Fear (the original); The Omen (of course); Roman Holiday (just to see him in a comedy); The Boys from Brazil; and On the Beach.
|Sep 28th, 2011 07:35 AM|
Guess this means i am also going again
The cured leper sent me Ken Foree
His movie catalog is limited mostly to a few movies made in the last few years, only a couple of which I have seen, and all of which I hated(except the Hank Gathers TV movie, and I only kind of liked that movie), 2 movies I hated and 1 I liked would be boring, however, he has been in almost every TV show every made in cameo roles, so we will use that
Ken Foree TV show I loved: Cheers. he played a police officer in an episode of one of the greatest sitcoms ever made
Ken Foree TV show I liked: Quantum Leap. He played something/someone called The Brush. I don't remember this entity, but I liked the show and watched almost every episode
Ken Foree TV show I hated: Family Matters. Doesn't matter what he played, this was a terrible show
Honorable mention: We'll stick the hank Gathers movie here, only because Loyala Marymount was a beast of a school in basketball in those days

|Ex Leper||I'd like to have another round.|
|Sep 27th, 2011 09:40 PM|
So Pent, apparently you liked The Road to Wellville? You were one of very few.
And yes, I lied. I'll go again.
The mailman always delivers, and he delivered a beauty - Jennifer Connelly
A Jennifer Connelly movie I loved: Labyrinth - showing my age again, but this is a cult classic. Where else can you find evil muppets? David Bowie holds his own, and in some places carries the picture. Not much on plot, but great on imagery.
A Jennifer Connelly movie I liked: Hulk - OK, shoot me. I liked Sam Elliott and Nick Nolte in this movie, Eric Bana was bland, sure, but he didn't suck, and the dual cameo of Stan Lee and Lou Ferrigno was cool.
A Jennifer Connelly movie I hated: The Day the Earth Stood Still. Should have kept on moving.
Honorable Mention: She only had a small role, but Once Upon A Time In America is a great movie. Also, House of Sand and Fog - very difficult to get through but ultimately worth it. Real depressing, though - don't watch if you're having thoughts of suicide.
|Sep 27th, 2011 09:23 PM|
Awww....alright. Just one more....
Pentegarn has provided me with Humphrey Bogart.
A Humphrey Bogart movie I loved: Casablanca. Yeah. It's that good.
A Humphrey Bogart movie I liked: Angels With Dirty Faces. Bogey and Cagney in the same movie. 'Nuff said.
A Humphrey Bogart movie I hated: The Oklahoma Kid. Bogey and Cagney in the same movie, and it's a western. Don't work.
Honorable Mentions: Everything else.
|Sep 27th, 2011 01:34 AM|
I'll take one more (and will ask MailCall when he gets up if he sent you your thespian Flagg)
This one is hard, because the hated category exists, but Colonel has given me Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Hopkins movie I loved:No question, Silence of the Lambs (will go ahead and lump in Hannibal and Red Dragon too) and it is entirely due to his efforts.
Anthony Hopkins movie I liked: Fracture. I liked this one, though many forget it even existed
Anthony Hopkins movie I hated:The Grinch. He may have only narrated it, but that counts for me.
Honorable mention: Thor, Mask of Zorro
|Sep 25th, 2011 08:51 PM|
One. More. Time.
Mail's in. Actually, the mail was early. The assignment was difficult.
In two words: Henry Fonda. (I hear the murmuring amongst the throng "Didn't he star in Easy Rider?" )
I get all the old ones.
A Henry Fonda movie I love: 12 Angry Men. Probably the greatest ensemble movie ever. Go on, prove me wrong.
A Henry Fonda movie I like: Mr. Roberts. He played it on stage and screen, and the movie won the Best Picture Oscar in 1955 which was (and still is) unusual for a comedy.
A Henry Fonda movie I hate: Yours, Mine and Ours. I was never a fan of Lucille Ball, and she ruined this movie for me.
Honorable Mention(s): Fail-Safe. Check it out. Plus pretty much any movie of his with a western theme.
|Sep 25th, 2011 06:03 PM|
Pent gave me Michael Clarke Duncan.
Michael Clarke Duncan movie I loved: The Green Mile--What else?
Michael Clarke Duncan movie I liked: Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby--Funny stuff. And I'm not a NASCAR fan.
Michael Clarke Duncan movie I hated: Daredevil. The only daring thing was watching this movie.
Honorable mentions: Bulworth, Breakfast Of Champions, The Whole Nine Yards
|Sep 25th, 2011 06:01 PM|
One more for the roooooooad(this means i will go again)
I was assigned Dan Aykroyd from the Colonel's HQ
Dan Aykroyd movie I loved: Trading Places. Hilarious
Dan Aykroyd movie I liked: Ghostbusters. Lot of good lines and oh so much merchandise
Dan Aykroyd movie I hated: Gonna have to go with Caddyshack 2 yet again. God this movie sucked
Honorable Mention: The Blues Brothers. If you don't watch this movie, I will eat at your house for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, every day of the week.
|Sep 20th, 2011 11:11 PM|
Hoo boy. Pent, buddy, you have done me a great honor, and have given me perhaps the toughest actor yet to do in this game.
I have been graced with perhaps the greatest actress in the history of film - Katharine Hepburn.
Oh my, my, my. Where do I begin.
A Katharine Hepburn Movie I Love: This is a very VERY difficult choice, but I'm going with Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, since it also features two of my other favorite actors of the era, Spencer Tracy and Sidney Poitier. It also tackled, at the time, a very intriguing social dilemma - what happens to a middle class American family when the daughter brings home, as her fiancé, someone who is acceptable in every way except one - skin color. And the movie was made in 1967, one year before the death of Martin Luther King Jr.
A Katharine Hepburn Movie I Like: On Golden Pond - A sentimental favorite since it includes an ailing Henry Fonda (who passed away within a year after receiving his "real" Oscar) giving the performance of his career. THe subject matter was a bit too sentimental (if you know what I mean) for my tastes, which is why it's only a "like".
A Katharine Hepburn (TV) Movie I Hate: Mrs. Delafield Wants to Marry. Why in the name of all that is holy did anyone think this was a good idea?
The many many Honorable Mentions: The African Queen; The Philadelphia Story; Suddenly, Last Summer; Adam's Rib; Woman of the Year -the list is long and lush. If any of you have the urge to see an old movie, google her filmography and just randomly pick one. You shouldn't be disappointed. Just do me a favor and see them in Black and White first. :Ih8colorizing
|Sep 20th, 2011 09:32 PM|
I'll go again since this has just been bumped
So the mail proves fast for once as I quickly got Elizabeth Taylor
An Elizabeth Taylor movie I loved: Cleopatra. Hollywood knew how to do up the epic movies back in the day. I believe this movie cost 2.3 quadrillion dollars to make
An Elizabeth Taylor movie I liked: The Taming of the Shrew. Most of the takes on this Shakespeare comedy are good
An Elizabeth Taylor movie I hated: The Flintstones. Not even a legendary actress of Liz Taylor's calibur could save this flaming turd
Honorable mention: While I never saw it, I would be remiss if I didn't mention National Velvet
|Sep 20th, 2011 09:30 PM|
I'll start up this thread again. I promise not to f&*$ up this time.
The Colonel has given me Kevin Bacon.
A Kevin Bacon movie I loved: Animal House. Classic comedy that made me rethink the buffet line and joining a fraternity.
A Kevin Bacon movie I liked: Apollo 13. Always thought this was an excellent idea for a film.
A Kevin Bacon movie I hated: Hollow Man. Looking at Rhona Mitra was the only good thing about this schlocky stew.
Honorable mentions: JFK, Sleepers, Diner, Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
