    Excluding the Holy Trilogy I am going with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. To this day it's one of my favorite animated movies. He was awesome as the Joker.

    For Mr. Hamil, I'm going to have to say Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker. He's downright scary here, and Batman Beyond was one of the best cartoons of all time.

    Here's a challenge: Favorite non-SW movie with [link=http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000168/]Samuel L. Jackson[/link].

    Samuel Jackson is one of the few actors I'd like to meet. He seems like he'd be a fun guy to hang out with. And a true SW fan :)

    I really liked Pulp Fiction. Snakes on a Plane was great. Can we count Kill Bill since he had such a tiny part as the piano player?? He was great as Frozone in the Incredibles (if you haven't seen it, go rent it. NO CAPES!)

    I think my all time favorite is Unbreakable. The premise of 'real world super heroes' was intriguing and the ending twist was awesome. And it was a great performance with our tough Mr. Jackson playing such a physically fragile person.

    His best job as a actor would have to be in a time to kill or pulp fiction. As far as my favorite movie with him in it that is non star wars I would have to say Jurrasic Park.

    Samuel L Jackson has been in some really good movies. But then again, he's been in some real stinkers.
    Some of the favorites include The Incredibles, Die Hard: With A Vengance, S.W.A.T., and Unbreakable. But as for a favorite, it's either Pulp Fiction or Formula 51.

    [link=http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000191/]Ewan McGregor[/link] is our next actor up for consideration. [face_love] =P~


    I don't think I've ever seen anything with him in it that I didn't like. Yeah, somethings I liked less than others (A Life Less Ordinary comes to mind) but there's nothing I've seen with him that I hate.

    Robots is one of my favorites. Long Way Round, which is his motorcycle journey with his best friend. Moulin Rouge (yeah, I'm one of those people who stops the movie right before Satine dies. I want a happy ending. Also, I can't help but think, when Ewan is cradling her in his arms as she lay dying, and she looks up at him and says "promise me . . . you'll train the boy.) Velvet Goldmine. (oh my. oh my. THAT scene. And that OTHER scene. oh my.) Trainspotting. Down With Love. The Island. Those nature documentaries he did (one on the rain forest and the other on polar bears)

    Ewan is a fantastic actor, a great singer, and very easy on the eyes, especially when he is wearing his kilt.

    I opened this thread, saw Ewan, thought about the choices, had a panic attack, developed a massive ulcer and died. thanks.

    I have every DVD btw. Have two copies of The Pillow Book, among others. Watched Long Way Round non stop til the end. Ask Jason.

    :D

    Now, this is a tough one. I am a HUGE fan of Ewan, so...I guess I'm gonna have to say that I absolutely love Moulin Rouge, mostly because I love musicals.

    Now, for the part of me that can admit that Ewan is a certifiable hottie (just because I'm a staight male doesn't mean I can't face facts :p ) I'm gonna have to say The Island...c'mon, Ewan clones....how awesome would that be?

    I have to agree with GoggledKnight on this but as far as the movie I would have to say Big Fish. I loved the script and Ewans' acting skills were very impressive.

    For SLJ, Unbreakable. That is one of my favorite movies.

    For Ewan, Trainspotting.

    I have mixed feelings about The Island. It seemed almost like two movies combined together. I liked the first half.

    Next up [link=http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000568/]Frank Oz[/link]


    Who knew Frank had a cameo in the Blues Brothers? Or he was one of the voices in Monster's Inc?


    I loved all the Muppet Movies and the Muppet Show and Seasme Street (which came out in the same year that I did)

    My favorite Muppet Movie is "Muppet Treasure Island" although the original Muppet Movie is a classic.

    Next up: Hayden Christensen.

    I've only seen him in one other movie, and that was Shattered Glass. Which was a good movie and I wish his Anakin was more like the character in Shattered Glass, less whiney, more personable yet making lots of excuses for his behavior.
