You sploofers are so good at this, I thought we would try another approach.
Think of your favorite actor/actress and tell me what their best movie was and the one that puts them to shame.
For example..(now I personally hate Mr.Costner, so this is easy)
Best - Untouchables
Worst - Waterworld/Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves/Tin Cup and so on and so on

When I think of more, I will return!!

Brandon Lee's performance in the 1991 movie: "Showdown In Little Tokyo" was terrible in contrast to his role in the cult movie "The Crow".
It seemed like Brandon didn't know whether to be Chinese, Japanese or American in the aforementioned movie, and was just there to make Dolph Lundgren look good.

John Travolta: Best, Saturday Night Fever. Worst, The General's Daughter. The moral of the story is, never see the movie after you have read the book!

Ah the Shawshank Redemption. Now there's a movie that did the book proud.

anyone else ever noticed that the best "Stephen King" movies are made from the books that are "non-horror"? "Shawshank," "Stand By Me," "Misery," and "The Green Mile" are a far cry from "Cujo," "Firestarter," and "Christine."

"Misery" had me on the edge of my seat, gnawing my knuckles.

Stephen King is a very gifted writer, in my opinion. A lot of people don't realize he wrote Shawshank, Stand by Me, & The Green Mile. I think they downplayed that because Stephen King is so well known for his horror novels that they thought it might turn people away. However, all of his books that I have read, despite the subject, have all had the same insight and depth as the non-horror stories.

I haven't always enjoyed the subject matter or the story of some of his books, but I love the way he writes. I got pretty burned out on him several years ago and quit reading his books. I turned on the TV one day and rewatched Shawshank Redemption (because if it is on, you can't turn away), and it made me want to go back and give Stephen King another try. I'm glad I did. I have a lot of catching up to do.
