The best thing about Death Proof is the plate of nachos Kurt's eating in that bar. They look amazing.

He's not particularly bad, but he's not great either and besides if the movie "fucking sucks" even if he was amazing in it, it wouldn't be in his top five would it?

Better off not making a list till you've seen some of the good ones, mate.

And then there's Mary Elizabeth Winstead in the cheerleader outfit.

Boing!

I do like Mary Elizabeth Winstead - She's Ramona -  Although that can hardly rescue what was obviously a bad movie.

Then why contribute at all? The thread title clearly states what actor the list is about and exactly how many films are asked of you in said list. Why join in if you don't even like the man or the majority of his films. what is the point of that?

What's the point of not? So conversation should only happen if your opinion on the topic is positive? That is pretty dumb. I really love The Thing. Which is why I posted. I have seen most of his films, but they were so forgettable that I barely remember them.

Its not about only talking about him in the positive, but instead of making a list, which you basically just chucked together out of ones you remember, why not start interesting conversation by just saying you would struggle to make five you remember well?
