Haven't seen Ocean's 13. He probably didn't suck though, but I wouldn't know. But I do know that De Niro hasn't done anything in the past 10 years that even approaches Pacino's performances in The Insider, Insomnia, or hell, even The Devil's Advocate.

You are probably right, this seems to be a common trap that a lot of older actors fall into, Harrison Ford, I'm looking at you!

What Lies Beneath was Harrison Ford's last great movie role, I loved him in that.

Pacino was okay in Ocean's, nothing too spectacular. I still want my 2 hours back for sitting through The Devil's Advocate though.

Thank you! Other than that he's basically played the same character over and over again... What pisses me off is that he so more cappable of something better..

I was just on IMDB and I found he was in some direct to video snowboarding movie called Water To Wine???

Here is the synopsis:

The film is about half-documentary, half-comedy about a kid who is thought to be the top snowboarder in the world until the day he gets put in jail. When released, he's picked up by all the other top snowboarders in the world in a party van, and to celebrate, they all go up the mountain for a snowboard party. All of the snowboarders in the film are real people and the story is semi-true

And his character is (are you ready for this?): Jethro The Bus Driver I shit you not...

As much as I love Harrison Ford, here's his track record for good stuff:

Star Wars Episodes IV and V (did anyone else think he was more of a screw-up in VI?)
The Indy series
BLADE RUNNER!
Witness
Patriot Games / Clear and Present Danger
Air Force One
What Lies Beneath

I'll give him a break on shit like Frantic, Random Hearts, and Firewall because he was Han Solo AND Indiana Jones.

I freakin' love Patriot Games, I don't know what it is about that movie but I can watch it over and over again...

That scene in the Irish Pub when he threatens Richard Harris is beyond awesome

Fair enough... What about Sabrina :shudder: or Hollywood Homicide?

Sabrina wasn't too bad, at least for me.

I turned off Hollywood Homicide after about 20 minutes.

Thank you God he's doing another Indy movie.

The Fugitive anybody?

And I thought Harrison was great in Hollywood Homocide. Sure it was a pretty "Meh" movie, but it had it's moments.

Too sweet for me thanks, it almost gave me cavities... Still a bad Harrison Ford movie is better than 99.9% of other movies.

Yes, the Fugitive was very good, I had forgotten about that one

I don't remember any "moments" from Hollywood Homicide other than that moment when I realized it sucked.

Maybe DeNiro figures he's done what he set out to do, and probably more. Doing this goofy little roles is akin to a retired person going fishing or growing a garden. It keeps his mind occupied, causes him little stress and gives him satisfaction at the end of the day.

The guy has given some of the most incredible performances in film history, debateably the finest American actor of all time. Raging Bull, Godfather Part II, Goodfellas, The Untouchables (You know what I like....baseball!), The Deer Hunter! Are you kidding me?

He's rich! Shit, if I had his money I'd be drooling on a couch watching discovery channel all day. Maybe he's just tired and taking it easy. Good for him. He's a goddamn legend.

He is a legend. No debating that. Maybe it would just be better if he kept his "retirement hobbies" off the silver screen.

Forgot about The Fugitive, one of the only truly great TV to Film adaptations ever.

Has anyone seen The Good Shepherd? De Niro acted and directed in it and it's supposed to be really good.
