While I love Bad Boys I would rank Colors just a bit over it. I mean come on, its has Robert duvall in it! Plus there are a lot of "that guy" roles in the movie too.


Whats your fave scene of Bad Boys? It has to be the coke can/pillow case, right? I loved that scene.

Sean Penn is a brilliant actor. One of my favorites. I cant wait to see his new directorial film: Into the Wild too.



Some of my fave Sean films:



Taps, Bad Boys, Fast Times, Racing With the Moon, The Falcon and the Snowman, The Thin Red Line, At Close Range, Carlitos Way, State of Grace, Hurly Burly, I Am Sam, Dead Man Walking.



Yeah pretty much anything hes in. haha.


#9

State of Grace kind of reminded me of a lower budget departed without Scorsese, it was pretty good though.

Clancy Brown! He was also in Highlander remember? He was great in that one.



At Close Range is a film that alot of people havent seen, but its one of the best crime films of the 80s. The end of the movie is awesome too. Dont want to spoil, but That gun scene between Penn and Walken is a classic!


#14

Yeah and I dont know if you know this but Walken is very scared of guns and always checks the gun before he has a scene to with them. So at the end of the movie, right before the last scene Penn switches the gun and thats why Walken looks so scared.


#15

Me: I remember hearing one of them say that on an Actors Studio interview. Great bit of info.


#16

Is there nobody that loves Mystic River, that´s my absolute favorite of Sean. At least the most emotional. His coolest movie is U-Turn for me.


#17

yea, mystic river is pretty good, i haven’t seen it since it came out though.


#18

Mystic River is a great movie but I still pick bad boys/at close range as my fav


#19

I actually really liked U Turn. I remember when I first saw it I thought this new girl (J lo) was going to be a great actress. She did such a good job in that film. Out of Sight came out and she was still on track. Then her butt blew up like the hemroid she actually is and reality set in. Benifer. I didnt even know who Billy Bob was then.


#20

Don´t forget the great Toby N Tucker (TNT)!Beside his acting role of Johnny Cash that was his best performance.
