    Yes, in a general “walking to the park, building stuff and avoiding fried crap” fit. I’m 6’3” and 245 lbs so being fit is a necessity for someone as young and big as me.

    How do you feel Matthias Schoenaerts and Marion Cotillard would fare as the romantic leads in the following movies:

    On the Waterfront
    A Streetcar Named Desire

    I’ll assume you mean Schoenaerts and Cotillard as Terry Malloy and Stanley Kowalski and Edie Doyle and Blanche DuBois respectively.

    Schoenaerts as Terry – (Perfect choice of role for Schoenaerts as he just excels in the equal parts brooding and truculent, equal parts sensitive and likeable tough guy model started by Brando. Just watch Bullhead and Rust and Bone and you’d see why. He’s got the right intensity for this part)

    Schoenaerts as Kowalski – (Once again a perfect choice for this role. He’s got a very virile masculinist edge to his performing, couple that with his animal magnetism he’s the best choice possible in my mind)

    Cotillard as Edie – (Not sure about this one. She could work but she doesn’t necessarily have the kindhearted, innocent, nun-like reticence or internalized sexuality for this role. Someone like Carey Mulligan or Michelle Williams would be a more effective choice for this role)

    Cotillard as Blanche – (Now this is a great choice for sure. Now Cotillard is at her dynamic best when sharing the screen, and this pairing and chemistry with Schoenaerts, alongside her screen presence would make her a perfect fit)

    What roles in film history do you see Robert Pattinson being good for?

    Nothing? Okay. I’ll play along. Maybe George Hanson in “Easy Rider”? Pattinson should be about the same age now as Nicholson was back then, and it’s not as high a degree of difficulty as Jacko’s other roles.

    List and rank your five favorite songs of the moment.

    The Indianapolis monologue as performed by Robert Shaw in Jaws – (Heretofore this monologue by the great Robert Shaw, Shaw’s performance is damn near perfection. He simply never stops adding layer upon layer to Quint, infusing kindness, dread, fear, shellshocked anxiousness and a palatable pain over his life with incisive precision, and manages to make all these contradicting emotions such a natural part of Quint; even though Quint is supposed to be this grandiose, larger than life Ahab-like figure, his performance is just so naturalistic, which makes the mind-boggling complexity of his acting all the more apparent.

    But the monologue? Oh my… that type of acting should be taught in acting classes. Shaw simply makes the tragedy that he describes with mere words, so vivid in our minds; we don’t at any point question the truthfulness of the story, due to how subtly Shaw alludes to the event with his shifting intonation. He also manages to convey the internalised anguish he feels over the disaster; it may seem too minuscule to notice at first, but Shaw lets on more than you think with just his eyes, and the subtle, natural way he performs. His accent and cadence also contribute greatly to the monologue, with his words being expressed so vividly in tandem with his mastery of pause. Due to Shaw’s monologue, THIS is the scariest moment in the film. And all it took was a quietly rising John Williams score and 6-7 minutes of Dreyfuss and Scheider shutting the fuck up as Shaw delivers a masterclass. It’s a goddamned shame Shaw did not receive one major plaudit for this award, because he deserved them all that year for his performance, particularly for this monologue.)

    “A Quiet Place”: See it, burn it, or ignore it? Why?
