    Deniro? Jack Nicholsen? Al Pacino? We will miss them all in a couple years...:facepalm:

    I'm going to go with DeNiro. He really threw himself into his roles (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull). He could do dramas and comedies, so it proves he was versatile enough to not be typecast.

    Nicholson was always kind of the same character. Kinda like John Wayne.

    Al Pacino never really got out of his "Scent Of A Woman" character, but is still enjoyable to watch in spite of that.

    I agree, Deniro could do everything, he was even good in Backdraft. Which is amazing.

    He was also excellent in "Midnight Run". Too bad he didn't do more of those types of movies, as opposed to the stupid shit with Ben Stiller.

    I'm sure he was looking for a lifetime Oscar for that shit.

    Ronin is a movie I've seen ten times and I'll watch many more.

    De Niro. To me, Al Pacino started going downhill after "Dog Day Afternoon". He had a few big roles since then, but his best was behind him. Nicholson played some memorable characters in some top rate movies, but his persona was bigger than the characters he played.

    He was a super badass in that movie! The car chase scenes alone make this movie well worth the watch!

    Midnight Run or Meet The Parents?

    Wasn't he in "Analyze This", or some shit like that? Saw that movie and hated it.

    That movie had a perfect amount of suspense. Too bad Stallone couldn't do more movies like that.

    Midnight Run. Don't know why but whenever I see "Quick Change", I think of Midnight Run. I liked "Quick Change" as well.
