    Comic-based only. I wonder how many votes Halle Berry will get?
    Besides mine of course.

    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).

    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.

    I liked the Phantom Menace, but that Jake Lloyd stunk worse than day-old Gungan.

    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.
