ok i have to see road to perdition! they're saying it's the best crime drama since the godfather, and the godfather was amazing. i have to see this one!

one of my other all time favorites is a league of their own. he's so good in that! my favorite scene in that movie:

jimmy:Well I was just wonderin' why you would throw home when we got a two-run lead! You let the tying run get on second base and we lost the lead because of you! Start using your head. That's the lump that's three feet above your ass! [Evelyn starts to cry.] Are you crying? Are you crying? ARE YOU CRYING? There's no crying, there's no crying in baseball! Rogers Hornsby was my manager, and he called me a talking pile of pigs***! And that was when my parents drove all the way down from Michigan to see me play the game! And did I cry? NO! NO! And do you know why?
evelyn:no..
jimmy:cause there's no crying in baseball!

I think he's a great actor and deserves the awards and praises he gets, however he's not one of my favourites.

He just doesn't seem to have... I dont know, and "edge" to the characters I've seen him play. He always seems too sensible and down to earth, which (to me) is rather dull.

Tokyogirl......I have seen Joe vs. the Volcano. Whenever I do something stupid I say "I must have a brain cloud". That was a great part of this movie when Meg says to him "You didn't get a second opinion on something called a brain cloud". :rolly2:

Funnily enough I've just watched Joe vs the Volcano for the first time in about 20 years. I was quite disappointed for the first quarter of the movie and then suddenly I got it (when suddenly I realised Meg Ryan was playing three roles) and I LOVED it.
