Wasn't sure what my next blog topic should be. After talking with Juanolo,, mr. Dr.
Professor Juanolo now, I have an idea.
You're probably asking what my topic is. Some are probably thinking another ME3 blog,
since I have been playing that game non-stop, or something to do with ME2,
wrong again. Maybe a preview blog for
COD Ghosts. Again, you're SO WRONG!
My topic has nothing to do with video games. I decided to write about my favorite top 5
actors/actresses. With that being said, let me start my list. This list is in no certain order. These are
my top five. I will list the person, which film(s) they have been in that I like
the most, & what qualities/characteristics from those films make them
qualified to make this list.
5. Larenz Tate
If you have not seen Dead Presidents or Ray(he had a cameo
appearance), then we have nothing to discuss.
This dude takes a role & turns it on its head. He embodies a character better than anyone I
know in the film industry, imho!
Favorite Movie: Menace to Society
4. Denzel Washington
Denzel Washington the epitome of cool, suave, debonair,
control, command, etc. He has played in
many films; three come to mind. American
Gangster, it showed his ruthlessness. Remember
The Titans, being able to go against the odds even when people didn't like you
or wanted you nowhere near them. Lastly, we have The Book of Eli, never thought
I'd see Denzel play a "religious" role; he pulled it off in that "Denzel"
Favorite Movie: Remember The Titans
3. Meryl Streep
I had to break up the monotony. This lady has chops, The Iron Lady, & the
Devil Wears Prada. She embodies a sense
of self with the former, diplomacy, regalness, etc. As with the latter, she shows a rougher side
in the beginning; then she softens up, shows emotions, yet knows when to play
in between the lines or go outside the box.
Favorite Movie: Devil Wears Prada
Disclaimer: I had a hard time deciding who should be
first between these two fine actors. Each
has that "something" that could have landed them in the top spot. There was one thing that set one apart from
the other. You'll see when you read
further down. If you don't want to know,
then you can stop reading. If curiosity
has got the best of you, keep reading.
2. Al Pacino
Al Pacino the name strikes fear in younger actors. This guy is a legend in the business. His repertoire is too long to mention
here. What is it I like about him when
it comes to acting? His skill, finesse,
tone, attitude, & grit that he brings to a role. Can you add ruthless to this list? He would
be in the panthenon of great actors, imho!
Favorite Movie: Scarface
1. Robert DeNiro
What qualities/qualifies DeNiro to make the top of the list? Several things, imho! It's his body of work, his skills, what he
brings to every role, his grit, personality, style, likability, etc. There are
several movies that DeNiro has played in, Casino, The Godfather: Part 2, Goodfellas,
Meet the Parents, etc. The film that stands out is my favorite of him.
Favorite Movie: Casino
These are my top five. Do you agree, disagree, or think that another film should have been chosen? Please leave a comment, I enjoy reading your thoughts on my blogs it helps me grow as a blogger. Thanks in advance!
