    Meryl Streep in pretty much every movie she’s ever made other than Kramer vs Kramer, Adaptation, and The Hours.

    Unpopular opinion here but the only Thing I like about Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is Leonardo Dicaprio he saves that movie he is the only interesting character…. the movie in itself was a bit of dissapointment to me

    Much like my prior Raul Julia in Street Fighter example, these actors didn’t actually save their movies, but they made them a whole lot more enjoyable than they had any right to be.

    Mathew Lillard is the only reason to watch the live action Scooby-Doo movies. He perfectly embodied an iconic cartoon character, nailing Shaggy’s voice, appearance, and mannerisms. Lillard was so good in the role, that he’s become Shaggy’s official voice actor years after the films came out.

    While Suicide Squad is an absolute mess of a motion picture, it actually had a very strong cast (excluding abysmal work from Cara Delevingne and Jared Leto), with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, and Jai Courtney giving very good performances. Smith works his trademark charm, Davis’ intensity makes an incompetent villain seem much tougher than she actually is, Robbie was so well cast that she got her own spinoff (although it turned out to be a huge flop), and despite being seen as a generic pretty boy in other films, Courtney makes the most of his minor role, in a performance that actually convinced me he might be a decent character actor.

    Courtney was a revelation in Suicide Squad. Suprisingly great turn that somehow killed his career. he lined up role after role while sucking up the joint and when he finally gave a great performance, he went poof. Not fair, bros. 🙁

    Luckily he’s one of only four actors (the others being Robbie, Davis, and Joel Kinnaman) whose been hired to reprise his role in James Gunn’s sequel/reboot. Clearly Gunn realized that Courtney was the biggest standout of the minor roles, and hopefully he’s giving him the material that he deserves. He really managed to stand out in the background of that film and made me want to see more of him.

    I also know he has a role coming up in a Cate Blanchett produces miniseries starring Yvonne Strahovski, so I can see him making a bit of a comeback soon. Here’s hoping this time around he’ll get to do more character parts, as I honestly believe that’s where his specialties lie.

    1. Haley Joel Osment in “Pay It Forward.” I actually recommend the movie to people strictly for his performance.

    2. Melissa McCarthy in “Bridesmaids.” Take her out of that movie and there’s practically no laughs.
