His part in "Jackie Brown" is a cameo?

A cameo is Chuck Norris in "Dodgeball," not a main role in a movie like Jackie.

That's like saying Bruce Willis had a cameo in "Pulp Fiction"

Ok, maybe not awful. I haven't seen it in a while. But I'm not watching it again. I remember not liking...anything about it, including Bobby.

One of my favorite things about Jackie Brown was De Niro playing an absolute loser. I agree with the Keaton comment, but the real winner of this movie not named Sam Jackson is Robert Forster.

not going to get into the debate, cause I love DeNiro....he could read voice overs in commercials and still be great (oh yeah, he IS doing that!) ..just wanted to voice my agreement with his role in Jackie Brown...loved him in that role! that scene in the mall parking lot was golden!

Maybe he just likes to work. Why should he have to choose his projects based on what he thinks the public will like? I think he's brilliant and as far as i'm concerned he can take any role he wants. Good for him for branching out.

I just read an interview with Christopher Walken where he said he's never turned down a role (which definitely explains why he seems to be in every movie). He's definitely done a lot of awful movies, but if the guy loves acting that much, then let him act. It's his career.

Lance, are you seriously telling me you can't appreciate Meet The Parents and Meet The Fockers? I mean, the sequel was a good notch or two below the original, but the original is a brilliant comedy.

I agree. I think its great that he is the fucking man in dramatic roles, but then can turn it up and BE FUNNY in non serious roles.
Not every movie is a cult classic, and oscar winner, or some obscure shitpiece that everyone says they love because other people do.

I think MTP and MTF are good movies. Funny, awkward, and De Niro does an excellent job.

Im sure in the future he'll do some anthony hopkins stuff and rock it, but for now, i don't think he is anywhere near the level of "sucks"

He just likes his chicken spicy that's all...

I am not a huge De Niro fan but I came to the realization years ago that he does what ever the fuck he wants and if you have a problem with that you can sleep with the fishes capiche?

I have always found him a rather odd actor, I mean he has had a very "eclectic" set of roles throughout his career, does anyone remember his roles in Brazil or We're No Angels or Awakenings or Mad Dog And Glory?

Cop Land is a great little flick (the director's cut, that is).

I agree about De Niro. He's been on auto pilot for over a decade. At least Pacino still takes risks.

De Niro isn't a good comedic actor imo. He's good at playing the straight man, reacting to someone else playing the fool.

Pacino, meanwhile, has appeared in fewer out and out comedies, but he often gives his characters a comedic edge. His sense of timing is incredible.

(Sorry for comparing them, but it was inevitable.)

I agree that Pacino is still a sharp actor. The last few movies he's done haven't been very good, but his rolls up until 2002 were still excellent.
