Mendelsohn has been one of my favorites ever since I binge-watched season 1 of Bloodline on Netflix. Love that guy.

Honestly, I don’t have an answer to this, so I’ll just say:

He’s not bad by any measure and he’s usually really fun to watch, but The Rock seems incapable of portraying a character.

The entirety of Chris Pratt’s range is on display in Guardians, he is boring in any scene that requires a modicum of seriousness or weight, and I do not consider him to be more capable than Ryan Reynolds.

I think, the way that modern blockbusters are constructed, acting talent is irrelevant beyond a narrow window. The breakneck pacing, expository drive, and anchorless (or just presumed and never shown) character traits are like a gravity well, pulling every performance towards the center. This constant by-the-gram dolling out of human interaction in big projects tends to make the performances in smaller movies stand out that much more, until I feel like I overrespond to them. Like, I think Olivia Coleman is incredibly, incredibly talented, but in-between her projects I’m mostly just watching flashing lights, pretty colors, and at least one spaceship that’s not gonna fit but then it does woops there’s a scratch tho so cue the punchline. Actual acting feels like an innovation, after too much of that.

So you only think about acting in modern blockbusters? There are so many movies besides blockbusters.

I have a 13 year old who only wants to see Jurassic Force Awakens: Ragnarok and a 6 year old who only wants to see cartoons. So that’s about 70% of my movie watching. What I’m saying is, when I’m watching *my* selected movies it always feels a bit like seeing your first painting after 3 months of being temporarily colorblind and reading only excel files. I feel like I can’t tell what’s great vs good under those conditions, because it all feels so vibrant and wild to me.
