  2. Stupid films changing release dates. Give everybody a correct answer for that, as otherwise it really fucks over anybody who said No as new releases never have big saturday increases like non new releases
  3. Yeah, weekend was a bit hectic, my laptop is currently at a friends house, I will get it back Tuesday and will continue this at double speed from then.

    SUR(V)IVOR: Episode 6 - Crazy Rich Survivors

    Somebody did score less than 70 right? Right?

    SUR(V)IVOR: Episode 6 - Crazy Rich Survivors

    At least can the person who scored less than 70 put the rest of us out of our misery:)
  6. To be fair, the issue for me is more down to how much better editing, scores and so forth are now. In the 40s or 50s you kind of just had the actor on their own just giving the lines. (There may also be a factor of most black and white actors still being stage actors adapting to a new medium.) But for me yeah, in older films I just find it harder to get over the idea that the person on screen is an actor delivering lines, whereas today even something like say... I don't know Ant Man. You have make up, effects, sound, editing, multiple cuts and so forth that make everybody feel like they are acting better than in older films, but its more just a case that they are given an awful lot more technical help to make them look good.
  7. Stopping there for a bit. But as a preview, Hermione is the first of 5 straight female characters that cover multiple decades, mediums, and genres. They are then followed by a character that would probably try to sleep with all of them.
  8. 75th - Hermione Granger - Emma Watson - Harry Potter Her relationship with Ron was Emma's early prep work for her future role in a Disney Live Action remake. On a serious note, the casting director for this series needs an award of some description. Pretty much the entire cast of this became great actors as they grew up and it ensured that the films made it to the end of the series without becoming unbearable. Unsurprisingly a fair number of Potterverse characters got a vote or two. Here are the ones that missed the top 250: Dobby - 400th McGonagall - 468th Prof Lupin - 749th
  9. 76th - Rick Blaine - Humphrey Bogart - Casablanca Little known fact that the actor here was named after a rare breed of camel... I am one of those uncultured swines that believes that the acting in black and white cinema is never good. Except for Casablanca that is. This film is as close to perfect as a film can get, and Bogart is the centre of that. This scene above is parodied so much that I knew it line for line before I ever saw the film, yet it still works at the climax, everything is that damn good. Hell that two minute clip could in itself supply up to 5 lines in @baumer's upcoming best movie lines list. Ilsa Lund sadly just missed the list in 123rd, and Captain Renault managed a vote to slip into 757th.
  10. Admit it, you would sell your entire family into slavery if it meant Serkis agreed to put on the ol' mo cap sensors and become a lanky blue alien thing for a film or 4.
  11. 77th - Maximum Decimus Meridius - Russell Crowe - Gladiator Sadly less is known about his Greenwich based cousin, Primo... I included the video above because the bit at 12 seconds is just pure wonderfulness. Russell Crowe has had a lot of great roles in his career, but it is hard to think if any others became as iconic as this one. The man of many accents, one of which is good (and the one from the Mummy which is life), Crowe is a great actor and that is showcased in this performance as well as any other which may come to mind. Surprisingly, the only other role to get even a vote outside of this was his role in Master and Commander which finished 758th.
  12. 78th - Caesar - Andy Serkis - Planet of the Apes "Can he play the piano anymore? Well of course he can! Well he couldn't before!" Was that the best 'NO!' in cinema? Well I am possibly biased as I consider the apes trilogy to possibly be the best film trilogy ever made. I don't care what may or maybe not still be to come, this is the best performance Serkis has ever given in my personal opinion and this film brought about a new era in how motion capture can be done. I wish more people agreed with me...
  13. 79th - Laurie Strode - Jamie Lee Curtis - Halloween When the voice of Shrek is trying to kill you, what do you do? While the question of best movie monster is a big debate of contention, with many hats being thrown into the ring, the title of best horror movie victim (or attempted victim), is a slightly more open and shut case. Friday doesn't really have an endearing protagonist from film to film and Heather Longen, Langon, Lengin.... something kamp didn't really have the career outside of Elm Street to compete with Curtis. Curtis I think is the only character from a horror film to receive significant votes that wasn't the person trying to do the teen murdering.
