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

Do you know why they call me TNT?..because when I go off somebody gets hurt.



Uturn is one of my favorites. underrated to say the least.



What a cast:

Nick Nolte, John Voight, Jauquin Phoenix, Sean Penn, Jennifer Lopez, Powers Boothe, Claire Danes, and the best performance of the movie : Billy Bob Thornton



name another movie with that kind of cast!

Thats a great cast? U Turn was terrible. I dont know why anyone would like that movie. Id actually put it as Stones worst film even behind NBK.



Movies with great casts:



Glengarry Glen Ross

Heat

Heavens Gate



What the hell? Theres like a hundred movies with casts better than the one in U Turn!!! lol.


#23

Everybody´s got his own taste.Nevertheless, it is a great cast or you really doubt it? Beside that I liked the musical score very much. Just a cool movie!


#24

The cast is good but nothing spectacular. It still doesnt save the movie from being crappy. This is the first time I ever heard someone say U Turn was a great movie.


#25

Thanks for the honor! Think I have to watch it on the weekend.And you have a nice one. Bye


#26

LOL. No problem!


#27

i read in a qt interview that sean penn was interested in doing NBK “the right way” (with Tim Roth probably) before Oliver Stone was attached to do it


#28

It would be cool to see Penn work with QT someday although I think Sean has this problem with entertainment type films. He only likes serious dramas or something. I guess it depends on the story/director too.



THIS is a great Sean Penn film. One of the movies where I remember seeing the VHS cover at my local video store and knowing I had to check it out. I mustve been about 11-12. As I was watching this vid I actually got choked up. That song by Madonna and the images just got to me. Then I saw For Chris Penn at the end.

Off Topic:The Royal Tenebaums had an fantastic cast


#31

All the King’s Men was good.



But Carlito’s Way was his best.


#32

I actually like just about everything that Penn has starred in…including Fast Times at Ridgemont High. I think that he is one of the more talented actors around and will be known as one of the best of all time before he is finished.


#33

Yeah I think he’s a great actor to but there is this strong hate for him


#34

casualties of war is one of is best performance

the hate towards him is due to his lack of good judgement - see the QT’s politics thread - actors, musicians, etc… shouldn’t get into politics - it alienates half of thier fans - .


#36

He´s got something to say and does not care about,what happens.Imagine Sean as everybody´s darling.He has never been and that´s what I like about him.


#37

Well I havent heard his politics but I dont think someone should be hated just because they dont agree with others. Anyway Penn is a great in my book.


#38

Plus he told The Q-Man about death proofing a car! that’s where The Q-Man got the idea for DP.


#39

I wonder why QT said it like he couldnt remember who told him about the DP car. How the hell could he forget Sean Penn telling him that? haha.



Im a big Sean Penn fan artistically speaking, hes just excellent. But politically I dont really agree with anything he says.

Does anyone else think that fat kid in Super Bad looks like his brother? http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1706767/
