Will Smith in I am Legend and Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Only those guys can execute it when half of the movie is just them and their thoughts.

I would take Will Smith and everything he's done as my favorite actor and body of work.

Denzel Washington
Tom Hanks
Tommy Lee Jones

Any movie with one of those actors in it, I will almost certainly see the movie without regard to the plot. For example Deja Vu would not have interested me, but because it had Washington in it, I watched it and loved it.

Actor - Tom Hanks

Movie maker (writer/director) - Kevin Smith

I know, two complete opposite ends of the spectrum.

Tony Scott, had to look him up, I have heard of his brother Ridley, but never Tony before. He has some good credits though.

Him and D.Washington seem to work together a lot...some of the better ones from him:

Deja Vu
Man on Fire (one of my all time favorite movies)
Taking of Pelham 123
Crimson Tide
Enemy of the State
Spy Game
Top Gun

And he's got another one called Unstoppable in post production with...guess who...Denzel Washington

I always thought Top Gun was Simson/Bruckheimer, but I see they just produced it and Tony Scott actually directed it. And I also love Man on Fire, great movie.

No, and unfortunately it's not the version Netflix has. Heck I didn't even remember that Dakota Fanning played the kid in it. Definitely going to have to watch it again.

In the DC version, (highlight the text to see the spoiler)

Washington sleeps with the wife and also blows himself up at the end instead of being just captured and dying.

Now that you say that, I'm guessing it IS the DC version I saw. Actually think that was a movie from my media collecting days (buying DVDs) and if I went into the attic of the garage, I may still have the DVD. (I use iTunes and Netflix for movies now)

Wow, I just saw in your avatar - Clockwork Orange. That is one of the few films where I need an emotional break in the middle (the other is Blackhawk Down)

You see, I must not be getting Clockwork Orange, because I need a break to wake up when I watch it. (Granted topless women running around is never bad)
