Unread postby swerb » Sat Nov 04, 2006 11:50 am

They started these threads on The OBR movie forum. I love the idea, and think its a good idea for debate and conversation starting.

We'll start with Kevin Spacey, one of my all time favorite actors.

I'm gonna go with The Usual Suspects.

However, all of the following are also among my favorite films of all time ...

The Ref

Loved him in "A Bug's Life." He is awesome as the whacked out power-monger leader of the grasshoppers. :twisted: :D

Gotta go with American Beauty.

Hell...other than the desire to bang a 17 year old, Lester Burnham might have been me 10 years ago (pre Clarissa).
