Comic-based only. I wonder how many votes Halle Berry will get?
Besides mine of course.
 
You're a thorough guy, Wallace - thorough guy.
 
I'd say, Ben Afleck's Daredevil in Daredevil. He wasn't horrible, but he wasn't as good as the others (although his day to day Matt Murdock was great).
 
Every performance in B&R besides Michael Gough's. :o
 
John Travolta in the Punisher.

A gang leader should be a little tougher than whiny.

The only performance in DD I really didn't like was Elektra's dad. That actor is just annoying looking anyway. But I really didn't like the movie

I'd say, starting at the top:

Toad in X-Men
Aunt May in both Spider-Man movies.
Bruce Banner in Hulk (he looks subtely ******ed to me, the guy, not Hulk)
Nomak in Blade 2
Vinnie Barbarino in the Punisher
Drake in Blade 3 (I actually liked both Reynolds + Biel, I know I'm in the minority)
Henri Ducard/Ra's Al Ghul in Batman Begins
Dr. Doom in FF (cliche/bandwagon to not like him, but I suppose against the majority to like the movie)
 
The sad thing is, McMahon would have made a great Doom if he had been given better material. He can play sadistic ******* very well.
 
Didn't care for Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man...

I like Maguire, I just don't dig some of the dialogue...
 
Elektra in Daredevil. She just seemed...too nice to be a psycho assassin.
 
Kirsten Dunst as MJ
Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow
Halle Berry as Storm
Micheal Keaton as Bats

yeah, Garner's got too much of a girl next door look for a heartless assassin.
 
Kirsten Dunst in Spider-Man 1 & 2
Drake in Blade Trinity
Halle Berry in X-Men
Jessica Alba in FF
 
Kirsten Dunst in Spider-Man 1 and 2
Ben Affleck in Daredevil
Jennifer Garner in Daredevil

But Daredevil was just average anyway.

I liked the Phantom Menace, but that Jake Lloyd stunk worse than day-old Gungan.
 
My bad; I guess that WAS what he was saying.

Did you read my opening post?
 
Marvel:
Kirsten as Mary Jane
Tobey as Spider-man
Ben as Daredevil--not bad, but, meh some else should of been DD imo
Anna as Rouge in X-men 1
Travolta in Punisher
That dude that played Iceman
Garner as Eleckra
Dafoe as Green Goblin..actually it was the costume fault and a few bad lines.
McMahon as Dr. Doom
Alba as Sue Storm

DC:
Everyone in Batman & Robin
Tommy lee Jones as Two Face
Jim Carrey as Riddler
Katie Holmes as Racheal
Hackman as Lex--way too campy for my taste though he did have a few good lines
Kidder as Lois when she's in front of Superman in S:TM
Lex's henchman and woman in S:TM

Whoops, my bad. Okay, then, Rob Schneider in Judge Dredd. Totally unnecessary comic relief.
 
I think alot of people are confusing "casting" with "performance". I don't like Halle Berry as Storm, nor did I like the way the script portrayed the character, but Halle's performance as Storm was good and believable. Bad performances are where you can tell they're acting.

Ignore the unaccurate portrayal in the script, was the performance believable? Was there a point where you accepted this character as a fully realized person (in the world created in the film)?

Judging performance means judging acting ability, something that Halle Berry has quite a bit of.
 
Not necessarily; a lot of the time you just didn't believe Halle was Storm. Likewise w/Kirsten. The only time I really bought her as MJ was when she was playing off of Tobey.
