Oh, my . . . now there's a question calculated to distract movie fans from whatever they're supposed to be doing! The top of my personal "would go see pretty much any film this person is in" list would looks something like this:

Actor (working today): Denzel Washington (honorable mention: Michael Fassbender)

Actor (all-time): James Stewart

Actress (working today): Helen Mirren

Actress (all-time): Katharine Hepburn (honorable mention: Jean Arthur)

Actress (all-time):

Constance Bennett

An inspiration as a choice! I'd add: Myrna Loy and Ruth Hussey, Cary Grant and William Powell and Rita Hayworth.

In contemporary actors and actresses, I like Jim Carey and Kate Winslet, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.

And then there is Norma Shearer!

Ah, yes!

Good, bad?

I realize these topics are a "third rail" when it comes to hot topics, but if we work at I am sure we can discuss the topis constructively.

Black Fish was a compelling argument against confining whales. Still I would like to know that there are sanctuaries for the animals, perhaps as in the protected area of the Nortwest Hawaiian Islands.

The Life of Pi's early chapters has a statement of the value of zoos to animals that seemed rational when I read it.

In re movie stars: I go to movies starring Sandra Bullock because Sandra Bullock. My interest is drawn more than usual to movies in which Greta Gerwig or Tilda Swinton are cast. I have very much admired some performances by Ryan Gosling and by George Clooney. Most of the movies I see, however, do not star stars.

Helen Mirren, Diana Rigg Maggie Smith (Did I mention that I am an aged Nerd?) and Sandra Bullock, Renee Zellweiger and Natalie Dormer.
I guess looking at Bullock and RZ i like women who are slightly awkward...
Denzel Washington hasn't had to do much acting lately, so I prefer the earlier Denzel, Matt Damon over Brad Pitt, and Leonard di Caprio
I enjoyed the older James Stewart's fine line in outrage, and had a fondness for Frank Findlay, whose wonderful performance in the Three Musketeers made people forget that his character was supposed to be two feet taller! His Iago in Olivier's odd "Othello" had the audience giving a conspiratorial snicker almost every time he appeared on screen/stage....wonderful actor...dead now.
