True Romance
Inglourious Basterds 

Robert De Niro
Godfather Part II
Taxi Driver
Meet The Parents
Raging Bull

Vince Vaughn
Old School
Wedding Crashers

Note: Al Pacino not on this list is not an oversight.  Scarface is the most overrated movie ever, he's got the first two Godfathers on this resume but whatever else you choose doesn't stack up with this group. 

My pick?  Brad Pitt. Ridiculous list.  It doesn't even include Sleepers and 12 Monkeys.  

I'm sure I missed some, let me know.

Joaquin Phoenix to play Dr. Strange?

A Dr. Strange movie!  Anybody?

With Comic Con going on this week out in San Diego there has been a lot goin on as you can imagine.  We got that picture (previous post) of Ben Affleck in his new Batman get up.  There's been news on shows, movies, and the like.

But apparently there is a lot of smoke on who will play Dr. Strange, and it could be the weird Joaquin Phoenix.

Don't hate it.  I was never a big Dr. Strange fan (was anyone?), he was solid in the Infinity Crisis / Gauntlet.  So I'm interested to see how this plays out.  We had the list of Marvel movie releases (no movies connected to said dates, but this appears to be one of those.)

Is there a (Marvel) character who has had a stand alone feature film that you like less than Dr. Strange?

Spider-Man?  Nope.
Punisher? Nope.
Wolverine? Nope.
Captain America? Nope.
Thor? Nope. (maybe close)
Iron Man?  Nope.
Ghost Rider? Nope.
Daredevil? Nope.
Blade? Nope.
Hulk? Nope.
Elektra?  Ding, Ding, Ding.  Ok, we got one.

And we'll have two went Ant-Man comes out in 2015... (I'll see that one too.)
