My Hit List (out and out rant)

If a movie has one of the following people in it, I'm instantly dubious... sometimes even nauseous.
I've been told this makes me a snob.
So be it.

Movie Puppets I Loathe (in no particular order)

Freddy Prinze Jr
Ashton Kutcher
Matthew Lillard
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Jason Biggs
Shannon Elizabeth
Denise Richards
Charlie Sheen
Tara Reid
Alyson Hannigan
Sharon Stone
Ryan Phillippe
Jennifer Love Hewwit
Jeff Daniels
Gina Davis
Seann William Scott


I'm sure there are more...
I'm *sure* there are more.. I just can't think of them at the moment.
Comment! Leave *your* most annoying movie puppets! Argue with me! Call me names for hating Buffy! c'mon! freeforall! WOOHOOO!

update!
Some people I forgot:
Julia Stiles
Britney Murphy
Claire Danes
Renee Zelwegger (someone explain this to me... really)
Yasmine Bleeth

Rebecca DeMornay
Lou Diamond Phillips
Jamie Lee Curtis
Darryl Hannah
Kevin Costner
Michael Douglas (just can't stand him)
Melanie Griffith
Matthew Broderick
Meg Ryan

(ya know... it's like... anyone popular from the last 20 years... Chances are they annoy me. Like I said to Ken below, I shouldn't attempt a full list of the hates because it will become clear that I only *really* like about 5 people)

Tom Hanks

Mary Steenburgen
Andy McDowell
Kathleen (is she american?) Turner. (notice as the years have gone on she's begun to sound more and more... "foreign"? Just like the vague "accent" that Tina Turner developed? )
Martin Short
(shoot him)
James Woods
Val Kilmer
Wesley Snipes
Ralph Finnes
Russell Crowe
Winona Ryder
Ben Affleck
Will Smith
Ethan Hawke
John Travolta...

Re: Hi, I don't know you, but I thought I might play along too
These aren't necessarily people I think are foul actors (except that first chunk in my list. They're vile) but just people that I am not impressed with or who just annoy me.

But okey dokey.

Ashton Kutcher - ok, he's not a good actor, granted....but gosh, he's hot.

Oh dear LORD let that be sarcasm. Really. He's not horribly deformed in any physical way. That's about all I can say for him. And any interview with him will reveal a brain the size of a walnut. There's absolutely nothing attractive about aggresively stupid people.


Matthew Lillard - he was good in Serial Mom (which you probably didn't like because of Kathleen Turner, anyway), Hackers, SLC Punk...other things I can't think of...

Serial Mom was just a total goofy movie. Saw it once and forgot it.Hackers was a HORRIBLE movie and he was horrible in it. Knowing people who *know* emmanuel goldstein and cereal killer (two different people) in real life sort of kills the idea that he could be an inane 17 year old dredlocked hacker boy.
There's nothing nothing nothing good in that movie if you've *any* knowledge of hacking BEYOND that movie. Even reading a few cdc or 10pht kills that.
Matthew Lillard is one of those non-negotiables. He's assy. That's all there is to it.


Julia Stiles - She was great in State and Main and also she has made the only semi-decent teenspoltation movie - 10 Things I Hate About You.

Which was honestly made okay by the non-main characters (as was most shakespeare) and not the leads.

Claire Danes - You're kidding. My So-Called Life?

You're kidding. My So-Called Acting?
She talked in a dead pan and cried on cue. Be still my heart.

Kathleen Turner - Serial Mom and also Virgin Suicides which I personally think is the greatest novel to movie ever. Sofia Coppola did a beautiful job expressing the soul of that book, it's a lovely companion to the novel.

I've not seen that movie. Since she's done *many* more than just those two, I still maintain that she's annoying.


James Woods - Also in Virgin Suicides. Plus, he was in this really great indie movie....He played a herion addict and he did a great job of it.

Again, he's annoying. I have nothing against him as an actor because I've seen him do some quality work.. but I find *him* annoying.

Val Kilmer - Awww....he was my favorite actor when I was like two - five. :( He was in Real Genius which I would watch obsessively.

He was also in Top Secret, but since then he's become this incredibly pompous method actor fop.
As I said elsewhere in a reply, it's not his acting.. it's him.

Russell Crowe - I really hate him. Really really. But he's a good actor...not in Gladiator, which was god awful, but in A Beautiful Mind he proved himself as a really incredible actor.

I never saw A Beautiful Mind, but ya know I didn't *mind* Gladiator, even if Joaquin Phoenix is the most banal and bland actor currently employed... yes he's even worse than Toby Maguire.
I think Crowe is drastically over hyped.

Winona Ryder - Beetlejuice! Another childhood favorite. The Heathers (if you were ever a teenage girl how could you sincerely not like this?). Girl, Interrupted was also rather good .

Winona Ryder is the same person in everything, just in different clothes and different makeup. She's not an actress, she's a prop.


Ben Affleck - Any Kevin Smith movie instantly disproves that. Please.

Please, yourself. Any Kevin Smith movie instantly proves how excellent writing can make ANYONE look good. Ben Affleck is a talentless cardboard cut out with 3 facial expressions and a chin cleft you could grow crops in. He road into hollywood on Matt Damon's coattails (matt damon who I said nothing against becase, even though he's disgustingly overhyped, he can actually *act*) and has churned out slop ever since (excepting the Smith vehicles).


I wonder why no one defended the older actors more... I would have thought *someone* would give me shit for disliking Tom Hanks.
