Kevin Costner : Just a bit overrated

Just a bit overrated

He's a good actor but most of his movies are average at best.

Re: Just a bit overrated

I totally disagree with you on all accounts.

Good to know.

Re: Just a bit overrated

Would you describe Untouchables, Field of Dreams, No Way Out, Bull Durham, Dances With Wolves, JFK, A Perfect World, The War to be "average at best" ?

If you would, what makes them "average at best" to you ?

I find Kevin totally underrated both as an actor and filmmaker.

Yep.

Re: Just a bit overrated

You still didn't point out what makes those movies "average at best" to you. Is it the acting, the directing, the script ?

Anyway, different strokes for different folks, I guess ;)

Everyone has different tastes. I admire Mr Costner enormously, but I really can't say I've seen anything of his that got to me. I didn't understand the hype behind Field of Dreams, and I just slept through the first half of Waterworld. I'm a big JFK conspiracy nut but couldn't get into that film. I watched Dances with Wolves but didn't appreciate that one either, and I don't remember it. While Robin Hood was good it will always be sub-par to Errol Flynn's version, in my opinion.
I'm just really particular about what films I like, I guess, and my tastes are varied. I love Amadeus, and The Ghost and Mrs Muir, Dragonwyk, Charade, and The Alien films... Just to name a few. I don't know why his films don't do it for me because clearly I can handle films that to modern audiences are not intellectually stimulating. I know people that watch his films and are enraptured by them, and that's ok. Peoples opinions aren't going to all be the same

Re: Just a bit overrated

I think you have it the wrong way around, his movies are good but his acting is "averaged at best"!

Re: Just a bit overrated

He's got beautiful lips. His lips are better actors than he is.

Re: Just a bit overrated

cupcake---go get your icing checked. Kevin is the ONLY actor I go see at the movies. No other can ever replace him. He is great in all genres. He is a warm and generous man and he is good to his coworkers. Enough said

Re: Just a bit overrated

He's not so "good" to masseuses. He is a bad man, who uses his celebrity status to try and get whatever he wants.

Re: Just a bit overrated

That is a BARE FACED lie you worm. That never happened. And you are a liar.

Re: Just a bit overrated

Cat got your tongue? What kind of man does this to his wife on their honeymoon? He's a scumbag.

Re: Just a bit overrated

He has several movies that are considered classics and has been working for over 30 years. How many actors can say that?

Re: Just a bit overrated

You nailed it.
