Is it just me or have most of his movies really sucked the last few years? He seems to take any script at all lately and just goes through the motions of acting instead of really absorbing and getting into the role like he used to. I just watched a few minutes of "Men Of Honor" and he really blows in it. In fact he does the same accent he used in "Cape Fear" which was one of his bettter movies....Just horrible stuff. Absolutely unwatchable. Seems like he's just grabbing a quick paycheck and then taking whatever else comes his way. He also seems to be the"same guy" no matter what the movie is. Anybody else feel this way. Or am I just down on him for no reason. I guess another way to look at it is...Who Cares?

I guess he's just getting older and not caring.

I saw The Score...thought it was OK at best. I do like Ed Norton too - great actor- but it was a little far-fetched and unrealistic I think. Deniro was Ok in it but Marlon Brando was really bad, almost embarassing. Guess I'm a little tough to please when it comes to movies.

I think you got it in the first post, EddieP... DeNiro's got such a well-known public image that every role he's taken lately seems to be the same. I think it's about time he gave up comedy, too.

I thought Men Of Honor was an excellent movie, and I really thought Analize This & Analize That were hillarious, and i'm not easily pleased when it comes to movies either. I thought DeNiro was excellent in A Bronx Tale & Goodfellas, but I suppose they are a little old now.

Oscar-Winning Actor De Niro Diagnosed with Cancer
Mon October 20, 2003 08:44 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Academy Award-winning actor Robert De Niro, 60, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, but his prospects for a full recovery are good, his publicist said on Monday.
"Doctors say the condition was detected at an early stage because of regular checkups," publicist Stan Rosenfield said in a statement. "Because of the early detection and his excellent physical condition, doctors project a full recovery."

Rosenfield declined to give further details about the actor's condition or course of treatment, but said De Niro planned to fulfill his commitment to start shooting his next film, "Hide and Seek" for 20th Century Fox early next year.

De Niro won an Oscar as best actor in 1981 for his role as the emotionally self-destructive boxing champion Jake La Motta in "Raging Bull." He was named best supporting actor in 1975 for playing the young Mafia patriarch Vito Corleone in "The Godfather: Part II."

The native New Yorker, who shot to prominence in Martin Scorsese's 1973 film "Mean Streets," has received four other Oscar nominations as best actor in "Cape Fear" (1991), "Awakenings" (1990), "The Deer Hunter" (1978) and "Taxi Driver" (1976).

Best known for his tough-guy roles, De Niro was last seen in movie theaters reprising his comic turn as mobster Paul Vitti in the film "Analyze That" with Billy Crystal.

I liked THE SCORE a lot actually. It was definitely far-fetched, but you know, I figure that's the point of a movie like that. I also liked the slow pacing, I found it a nice change. I also liked Brando in it, I thought he was "weird". - But all the other movies I've had no interest in, so I haven't seen them. I feel that he has been playing the same character, even if the movie could use something a little different. - I guess, yes, maybe he's just trying to keep making money. Maybe he hasn't put heart into anything, because nothing that great has come along and he wants to keep working. I certainly get like that at work. Just go through the motions and do what I have to do, so I can go home with a paycheck and enjoy the points of life I really love, like the ABB...

Hey Linnie, maybe that could be the title to his new movie...

Robert Deniro starring in... "Suck and Blow".

All kidding aside, I hope he makes a full recovery. I'm sure there is some great acting ability still in him...he just needs the right script I guess. He certainly is a film legend.

I believe that I read a statement by Deniro (from a recent interview) where he pretty much said that at this point in his career he would take any role if the money was good enough. At least he's honest about it.

I thought "Heat" was great. I also like "City by the Sea"

Can't just blame DeNiro if the film sucks. its not like he is directing, editing
or writing the lame comedies.

Peace
John

"Heat" was very good...Deniro and Pacino, can't beat that.

His "tough guy" roles are usually pretty convincing.

As far as Dinero movies I would definitely recommend one called Ronin. Very, very good, and for reasons I can't say as it would give the movie away.

Angel Heart with DeNiro starring as the Devil...thought that was pretty cool but that was a long time ago. He has had too many serious roles for me to get into him in comedy.JMO

I think the same could be said for Al Pacino. He's cast more as a persona...not a character. That being said, I do stop the channel surfing if I see either one of em...at least for a bit. *shrug*

Yeah. They're both still talented, but they both seem like they're playing the same guy so much of the time. And why does Pacino always look so tired?

Yep. That's what I was saying. Same guy, different wardrobe.

As far as looking tired. I guess Al's not the typical Hollywood nip & tuck kinda guy.

Actually Hugh Grant is the king of playing the same character in every single movie.

I'm not sure the guy Hugh Grant plays can be described as a character, though.

You should have seen "Insomnia"...Pacino looked REALLY Tired!

A couple other dudes who seem to do just about anything for a payday....

Gene Hackman - Yes I know he's done a lot of great movies too but he should be a little more selective.

Nicholas Cage - One of the most annoying actors out there.

Samuel Jackson - Excellent actor but does about 250 movies a year or so it seems...

Billy Bob Thornton - Just who is this guy? I think he's been married 5 or 6 times. I think thats too many don't you?

Why do rappers do movies anyway? They are just silly guys who can't act.
I think I just sounded like Andy Rooney...

Yeah, I did see Insomnia. At least it made sense for his character to be tired that time.

Hackman wants the record for most movie appearances, I think. Or does he have it?
