    Yeah, Cruise doesn't really make too many movies that show his acting ability these days, but even if he did I definitely wouldn't go out of my way to see them now, and even his older movies grate on me, I wish they didn't. For some strange reason I don't have the same reaction to Mel Gibson films, and he is a truly vile human being. Maybe it is because I liked his work more to begin with, I don't know. The last of his more recent films that I watched was Edge of Darkness, mostly because some of it was filmed in Northampton, MA while I was going to school in the area and I was curious. It was actually much better than I expected, but I did find myself feeling on edge whenever his character was acting kind of crazy and yelling, probably because I was thinking about those insane voice mail rants!
    Suck it, Shawn.

I have nothing against her and, in fact, she comes off as perfectly likeable in recent interviews, but she remains a terrible actress, IMO.
    This. Prestige projects do not an actor make. Conversely, a great actor is able to do excellent work even with subpar material. Stewart may select more interesting roles nowadays - I actually liked Clouds of Sils Maria - but she was bad in that, and she was bad in Twilight.

    K. Stew gave the best performance I've seen so far this year, in Personal Shopper. Just saying.

    Tom Hanks, Russel Crowe, Colin Farrell are my top 3. They just don't get me.
    Emilia Clarke, Adam Sandler, Michael Fassbender (not his fault I guess? everybody says he's so good but he seemed quite flat in the movies I saw), Mary McDonnell, Karen Gillan... that's it.

    Finally someone said it. While he has indeed done some strong work, he is ridiculously overhyped. His Macbeth remains one of the worst performances I've seen by anyone. The entire thing consisted of him mumbling every word and looking off into the distance. That was it.

    I loathe Mark Whalberg. He has a seriously racist and violent history and I don't understand why anybody overlooks this. Fuck him. Mel Gibson may also DIAF. Tom Cruise seems like easy pickings.

    Other than that I can't come up with a 'least favorite" list, but here are some actors whose movies or shows I would never normally go to see:

    -The Rock
    -Diane Keaton (apart from Annie Hall, which I love)
    -John Travolta
    -Robin Williams (his humor was just plain annoying and grating and not funny to me)
    -Arnold Schwarzenegger
    -Brendan Fraser
    -Jim Carrey in a comedy role (see "Robin Williams") - though I think he's incredibly good in dramas

    Also I'm not sure I can ever forgive the cast of "Collateral Beauty" for that steaming pile of dog shit. Kate Winslet will get a hall pass because she's amazing, but like Ed Norton and Will Smith may be forever dead to me now.

    Interestingly, this list was harder for me to compile than the one including my actual favourites.

    1. Mark Wahlberg
    2. Will Ferrell
    3. Samuel L. Jackson
    4. Tom Hardy
    5. James Franco
    6. Bill Murray
    7. Terry Crews
    8. Neil Patrick Harris
    9. Eddie Redmayne
    10. Adam Driver

    Julia Roberts - don't have a particular reason, her face just bugs me

    Ryan Gosling - the movies I watch with him in them don't work for me (La La Land, Blade Runner 2049 and Only God Forgives)
