Kevin Costner : Find I dislike his popular roles, like his unpopular ones, anyone else?

Find I dislike his popular roles, like his unpopular ones, anyone else?

Well, not in every case, but for example I hated "Dances..Wolves" "Bodyguard", and "Robin Hood", and "Dreams" I only found OK, didn't care for "JFK" or "Bull Durham".

Yet, I loved "Perfect World", and even tho I wouldn't say it was spectacular and certainly I would never have paid 200mill (in the 90's no less) for "Waterworld" I still liked it and don't see why it gets so much hate.

I also like "Wyatt Earp", "Open Range" and "Hatfields/McCoys", "Graceland" was pretty good too, now some of those films weren't total bombs or anything, but they still did not make the headlines like "Wolves", "RH", "JFK", etc.

I think it all comes down to personal taste - what's great about the man's career, though, is that you can't drill it down to a single role/movie character/film and you can pick your favorite even amongst the less popular ones because it's just as valid a choice as any.

Bear in mind that KC's way of picking scripts is not based on box-office but rather on how much "the hair on the back of his neck stands up" while reading one - so, all of those movies, even the less popular ones, were picked according to that criteria - there must have been something in there in each of them that interested him.

He Bodyguard was a hit film, but it was loathed by critics. Robin Hood got mixed reviews, and has not aged well. I cannot stand Bull Durham 2000 (except for some nice looking men in the locker room). So you're not alone.

Do you also feel that way about the toilet paper that wipes your butt? Jeez, I cannot fathom somebody who didn't like DWW!!! It is a masterpiece and that is why it won 7 Oscars and many other awards. Robin Hood happens to be a lot of people's fave version of that genre...my all time fave as a matter of fact. If you don't like them, well, too bad for you.

Doesn't surprise me that someone who likes DWW would say something like that, and this:

it won 7 Oscars and many other awards.
