    i'm gonna get thrown to wolves for this comment but I think Meryl Streep is overrated... is there a brilliant movie of hers that i somehow managed to miss?? I have not been overly impressed by anything she has done and yet she is always be named a top actress.

    My take on Meryl Streep's best roles:

    The Devil Wears Prada (2006) .... Miranda Priestly
    The Hours (2002) .... Clarissa Vaughan
    The Bridges of Madison County (1995) .... Francesca Johnson
    Postcards from the Edge (1990) .... Suzanne Vale
    Ironweed (1987) .... Helen Archer
    Out of Africa (1985) .... Karen Blixen
    Silkwood (1983) .... Karen Silkwood
    Sophie's Choice (1982) .... Sophie Zawistowski
    The French Lieutenant's Woman (1981) .... Sarah/Anna
    Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) .... Joanna Kramer
    The Deer Hunter (1978) .... Linda
    Julia (1977) .... Anne Marie

    She was awesome as Francesca, the emotion she portrayed was so real.. I still remember that car scene - it made me cry.

    i agree with most of this but i like julia roberts. she's good at what she does and chooses roles accordingly. she's entertained me and that's enough. in the end tho they are all overrated. movie acting is not brain surgery. they say 30 seconds of dialogue without a cut and everybody goes apeshit. it's all hype.
    i add johnny depp to the list. very tired of being told how amazing he is.

    I agree that Depp is always spot on. That's actually why I continue to enjoy Brad Pitt as an actor as well. Say what you will about the man, but he's played a huge variety of roles, and always just seems to hit the mark - accents, nervous ticks, subtle personality quirks... when he's on camera, he's working, not just going through the motions.

    I agree. He's very boring too watch.

    IMO, Angelina and Halle are just eye candy.

    Oh, hell yeah. They're both mediocre at best. Halle isn't very good, but she's better than Angelina, in the respect that ....well, she looks like she's trying. She's not good, but she's trying. Angelina is just bad, bad bad. I can't believe she won an Oscar for Girl, Interrupted. Brittany Murphy was fucking amazing in that film, and where did the credit go? For Angelina, because she chewed the scenery. Awful performance.
