  1. One of my favorite actors. Good choice Rob. Again – making my list 1st and looking at yours after…

    10). NO WAY OUT
    9). Scarecrow
    8). UNDER FIRE
    7). The Birdcage (he’s a riot. Wait for the movie’s last line)
    6). BONNIE & CLYDE (at 6 only because it’s a supporting role)
    5). The Royal Tennenbaums
    3). Hoosiers
    1). The French Connection

    With shout outs to French Connection II – not as widely seen as the first – but he’s excellent. Especially in the scenes where he goes cold turkey to get off the heroin. Also The Firm, and Enemy of the State.


  2. We shared only 40%. I did like The Package, but the film itself had a lot of plot holes in it, so lost points for that. Lex Luthor at #3? Surprised. He chewed so much scenery in that movie that I’m surprised he didn’t need an internist. That was a paycheck movie – not classic Hackman by any stretch.
