Sweet thread..

Disagree on Cage though, Leaving Las Vegas was a masterpiece.

And Kurt Russell in Big Trouble In Little China still remains one of my favourites.

Top 5 actors in no order:

DeNiro (pre Fockers)
Pacino (between Scarface and Carlitos way)
Penn
Tom Hanks
Denzel Washington

These guys have X Factor and panache to boot.

Top 5 movies in no order:

Stand By Me (Still love this flick even as an adult)
Scarface (Beyond description as far as Im concerned)
Greenmile
Boyz in the Hood (First of its genre to really make an impression)
Pulp Fiction

Hounrable mention to True Romance.

Some of the very few flicks I can still watch and enjoy.

Al Pacino - make way for the bad man, the bad man is coming
if that movie doesnt get you hard, you should see a doctor.

Samuel L. Jackson - Say what one more time mofo, I dare ya I DOUBLE DARE YA
That whole movie is goodness, I probably didnt understand the flow of the movie watching it at the flicks but its a all time classic for me.

Tom Hanks - Like is like a box of chocolates
Anything with Hanks in it I can watch and his son is doing pretty well to.

Meryl Streep

Tom Cruise - SHOW. ME. THE. MONEY!!!!

Denzel - My n!@ga Training Day.

You don't get much better than that. 'Squirrel!!!!'

I thought he deserved an Oscar and is far less pretencious and up himself than Crowe, far less likely to attack a bloke for cutting short his self important speech.

One of the best comedies in years..

Edit: There's no reason why this thread shouldn't also devolve into a Nic Cage discussion
