Death To Smoochy

  1. I would have said the same thing but then I saw "Down in the Valley." Another awful movie.

    Didn't it get awful reviews? I think I remember hearing it mentioned in the same breath as Gigli and Ishtar. Could explain why it bombed.
  3. In American History X, Norton retired the trophy in the category of Greatest Performance By An Actor That Had No Freaking Chance Of Winning An Oscar.

    Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross should be there as well... At least Norton was nominated...

    Baldwin should have been nominated for his role in The Departed, too.

    Another Norton flick where he was great, but you just hoped like hell he would get shot/get the piss beat out of was "Rounders".

    I didn't think Ishtar was all that bad. I might be the only one, though.

    Curious to see him as The Hulk.
  10. I don't understand the Baldwin-love. He's always playing the same guy: himself. The phone call to his real-life daughter confirmed that for me.
  11. If that's an intentional dig at me because I was the one who started the bands thread, it's very well played.
  12. I haven't seen that film.

    Norton was incredible in both American History X and Fight Club (he might get even more love for what he did in Fight Club if Brad Pitt didn't steal the film with a chance to play an incredible character).
    Norton is always believable, and I think he selects good scripts.
    I will watch anything he's in. I haven't caught The Illusionist yet (is that what it's called?), but I'm excited about it.
