    but I think that was more a function of the excellent writing (which rightfully won the Oscar).

    Acting-wise, Landau was better in "Ed Wood."

      He makes his roles memorable, even in shitty movies with shitty writing.

      Take for example his part in the 'Star Wars' prequels. Like the prequels themselves, his part is not written well at all, and if it was any other actor I don't think anyone would remember it at all. I think that's true for his parts in movies like 'Deep Blue Sea' or 'Unbreakable' too.

      And I remember him from movies even before he hit it "big." He was great in 'Jungle Fever' as the crackhead brother of the main character.

      •  Well, that's part of the problem, IMO... (4+ / 0-)

        And, I suspect, part of the reason why the producers of "Breaking Bad" wouldn't let him appear in a scene.

        He's always "Samuel L. Jackson as..."

          with nick cage and
          possibly some of Sam L's personna hype and screen personna inadvertently perpetuated as projects cliche along bankable paths.

          i(my)ow: I think he's a fine powerful actor and not near alone in pro narcissism of that industry. as difficult it is to wield a self in that career, i'm forgiving of what I can tolerate to achieve performance.

          dense, hunh?

          we should ask how he feels re whales

          also ask if he noticed travolta, plummer, roth, rhames, thurman, etc

          clime parches on. terms: ocean rise, weather re-patterning, storm pathology, drout-famine, acceptance of nature.
