Default Best Acting Performance: 1990-2010

I watched Tombstone twice last week...which probably put the movie watching count well into triple digits by this point in my life...with the recent Oscars and all of that, I ask you what do you think is the best acting performance(s) of from 1990-2010...those years should be far enough away from present day to give you some perspective and neatly avoids 2013. In my opinion there were a ton of great movies in 2013 as far as character work is concerned.


To bring it back around to the beginning of this post, Val Kilmer's Doc Holiday is crazy good. It may be a confluence of writing and directing but Val stole the movie and when he was not on the screen, the movie drags for me. I still love the movie as a whole but it would fade into oblivion, I think if there was another actor who was in that role...and to that point, we have seen a couple of other actors play Doc Holiday who were good but not nearly on Val's level.

Daniel Day Lewis is Daniel Plainview



Let's hear what you got.

I loved Jack Nicholson in 'As Good As it Gets'!

Tom Hanks IS Forrest Gump. Anthony Hopkins is immortal as Hannibal Lector. Gabriel Byrne was awesome as Tom Regan in 'Miller's Crossing'... I'll try and add to this later!

Heath Ledger in 'The Dark Knight Rises", Clint Eastwood in 'Gran Torino'.

Interesting note on Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal Lector in 'Silence of the Lambs'

The movie was 2hrs long.

Anthony Hopkins won the Best Actor Oscar in this role.

Of the two hours of the film, Hopkins is onscreen for a total of 16 minutes.

Impossible to say but some of my favorite performances include:

Phillip Seymour Hoffman - Father Brendan Flynn - Doubt

Philip Seymour Hoffman - Gust Avrakotos - Charlie Wilson's War

Phillip Seymour Hoffman - Lancaster Dodd - The Master...Joaquin Phoenix is pretty damn good here as well

Phillip Seymour...you get my point

Ryan Gosling - Dan Dunne - Half Nelson

William H Macy - Jerry Lundegaard - Fargo

Kevin Spacey - Lester Burnham - American Beauty

Tom Wilkerson - Dr. Matt Fowler - In the Bedroom
