Phil’s Top 5… Actors Who Don’t Inspire Me To See A Film

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Actors Who Don’t Inspire Me To See A Film


Close but no cigar: Gwyneth Paltrow, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell


5 – Angelina Jolie
Like many here she’s made a film or two I like but now a-days her public persona and her worthy movie output does nothing to inspire me to buy a ticket.


4 – Sean Penn
Over the top, intense, driven, annoying… take your pick.  Penn does little for me as an actor and his films even less.


3 – Jennifer Lawrence
Be it Mother!, the mop film, American whatever, The Catching fire thing… i just don’t get her or why she is rated so highly.  I appreciate many others do. 


2 – Johnny Depp
There was a time where Johnny Depp could do no wrong.  Think Ed Wood era.  But now in the later years of his career his name is now synonymous with OTT acting and boring films.  See Pirates, the Kevin Smith Films, pretty much anything since 2000….


1 – Daniel Day Lewis
I get it. He’s won a bundle of awards, his method style is legendary but his name before a film does VERY little to inspire me to watch it.
