Wow, what have the top 9 been doing in order to beat out a guy facing murder 1 charges? Of course, I suppose I could excuse them since I didn't realize Robert Blake had any heat left.

Well, Crowe lost the Oscar because he was a prick, Ryder stole a bunch of shit, lied about it, then got tried and convicted on some of the charges. As for the other 7...Dunno! Shitty movies, basically.

Pete Jones was the winner of Miramax, HBO and Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's contest/TV show Project Greenlight.

It was a nationwide search for aspiring filmmaker's with the winner given $1 million (although they ended up giving the film a little more than that) to make their own movie AND have the privillege (yeah, right) of having their efforts filmed for a reality TV show on HBO.

Jones was the winner and got to direct the movie based off of his screenplay (Stolen Summer). It starred Aidan Quinn, Bonnie Hunt and Kevin Pollack. The film got a special screening at Sundance. I haven't heard anything about it since.

The tv show (obviously) played up all of Jones' struggles as well as those of his inexperienced crew. Although, I heard that the film has garnered mostly positive reactions from those who have seen this small-budget indie film.

I do not get Cuba Gooding Jr. at 3. Michael Jackson and others are above him. Besides, for how many bad reviews there were of Snow Dogs, the movie itself made money and I hear that a sequel is in the works. That doesn't sound like a qualification for a guy whose just below number 1 A-hole and Felony Grand Theft Ryder.

we bought the PGL dvd set for the store.

the episodes of the show rent ok, but Stolen Summer rents pretty good...about 2-3 rents a week. that's better than some new releases we have, like Juwanna Man...

i agree with #40, i refuse to spend $$$ on daredevil because of the casting...

I don't know about Winona. She had some hot pictures during the trial and if played right this can revive her career.

The Good Girl was a very good film. However, I have yet to see any of the other 'Friends' make a decent film.

The Star Trek franchise should be much, much higher.





From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:

DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?

SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.

Does it remind you of any show in particular?

Interesting LIST!! (lol) j/k. Some of these people seem way to early to call them out for having a cold streak. I think (1)Russell Crowe even being an a-hole is still a pretty high name brand actor.

Humm EvilWaldo I also heard good things of the "good girl" but I haven't seen it yet. I always thought Lisa Kudrow was the talent of the "friends" cast I really liked the 1997 movie 'clockwatchers' which she was in... Speaking of 'clockwatcher' I like (27)Parker Posie.

(29)Matthew McConaughey being on this list is insane! He's my one of my favourite actor right now. He had two real great movies this year 'Frailty' and '13 Conversations About One Thing'. Those two films are in my top 10 this year... Also hard to diss (20)Gwyneth Paltrow who was in one of my favourite movies last year The Royal Tenebaums.

When did (47)Anna Nicole Smith, (32)Rob Schneider and the (49)Olson Twins had power to lose?

(11)Richard Gere always sucked, he is the worst actor I've seen. HIm in UnFaithful this year was has my worst performance award. he's just awful. I can't remember when this Gerbal AssClown ever had a good performance... It will be really interesting how well Gangs of NewYork will do. Seems like a make or break time for (14)Leonardo DiCaprio.

I'm no fan of (26)Adam Sandler but doesn't his movies do okay. Plus I heard good things about his performance in 'Punch Drunk Love'... Agree with Bash91. When was the last time (10)Robert Blake had any importance, but sure knocking off your wife probably should give you some consideration of having a rough year.

I also love analyzing these sort of list and of course every list has to piss me off somewhat. So many names but no Ben Afflick and Matt Damon, I guess these guys are like cockroaches, who cares how awful they do they always stick around

He was in Rat Race and Boat Trip as well, right? He has appeared in a lot of crap since being in Oscar nominated films.

I thought Mr. G. AssClown was terrific in Internal Affairs and Primal Fear (Officer and a Gentleman is a no-brainer). Also, if you can get past the insane premise of Pretty Woman, he wasn't that bad.

Why wasn't James Coburn on this list? He has got to be cold by now...

Uh, Steven Spielberg is on this list? He runs a major studio. He directed the GREAT Minority Report, and there is a lot of good buzz surrounding Catch Me If You Can. He's one of the major filmmaking talents of the past 30 years, and he hasn't jumped the shark yet, folks.

And were some of these people even "hot" to begin with? Alison Eastwood and Nancy Pimenthal were never exactly household names.

And why the hell is Arnold Schwarzenegger not on his list? There's a REAL example of a big-name star who's been on the skids.

Um, this seems to need some clarification; by using the term 'coldest', Film Threat means the famous or semi-famous people in hollywood who will treat you like shit when you meet them in person, Right? They don't mean 'coldest' as in no heat or draw. Having met Steven Spielberg at MGM studion a few years ago, I can honestly say that he should be much higher then in the 20s. Nick Nolte, however, I very much have to disagree with because about 3 years ago, he was in Orlando at a club called Barbarella and he was buying EVERYONE drinks, all night long, at the back bar. That man could put down Guinness like it was water

If that was true, please explain these entries:

28. Rick Berman & Star Trek Franchise
40. Directors Who Feel the Need to Put Their Own "Touch" on Superhero Movies

and most importantly:

37. Films From The Cast of "Friends"


-Jag

Unless those films are just non-tipping assholes.



With poison running through your veins, and death marching solemnly towards you, heroic acts become more of a necessity as you see your time dwindling.

Vanquishing your enemies, making amends to those you have wronged, and leaving words of love and kindness for those around you become second nature as your own mortality looms

However, true strength lies not in these last desperate acts, but in the actions of one who has to get out of bed the next day and face the consequences of doing that which you believe is right.

How Madonna can clock in at just #8 will be one of the great mysteries of our time.

Rob Schneider? When the ads for your movie don't even have the TRAILER until a couple of weeks ago, that just screams "this movie's crap, we're contractually obligated to advertise".

This is easy.

#28: Rick Berman is an asshole for NOT allowing anyone to take over the Star Trek franchise from him. This has been touched upon on atleast 3 seperate articles they've run in the magazine and in various other media outlets.

#40: Any director who feels the need to ruin a good character from comics is an asshole. Sam Raimi allowing Spider-Man to have internal web shooters is assanine. Joel Schumacher ruining the Batman films with his shitty direction and deplorable visuals, makes him an asshole.

#37: I think was just worded wrong, cause it's not so much the films they are in but the cast it's self that are the assholes here.



I merely suggested, that you had the driving ability of a brain dead labratory ape.
