Watched Fargo a few days in (belated) anticipation of the TV show. Started a bit slow, but I really liked it after they introduced Margie. Really funny.

And those accents, man...

Was that your first time watching it?  I recently saw it for the first time, and thought it was pretty good as well.  What accents? ;-)

The same kind as when you watch The Departed.

Yeah, first time. Holds up really well for 1996.

I'm halfway through the second Hobbit movie. I'm not really enjoying it so far.

 

The Hobbit movies are weak, I agree. Bogey with a 15 foot putt to save... LOTR are birdies, BTW.

The Hobbit movies aren't terrible, just overly long and drawn out.  Although I loved the bit with the dragon and the dwarves.  Tauriel?  Legolas?  You're grasping, PJ.

 

Stepbrothers was added to Netflix Canada recently.  Some parts of that movie still make me giggle as much as the first time I saw it.  Easy birdie for me.

I thought they were alright if you don't compare them to lotr which is hard not to. I find they try to be too funny

The funny thing about The Departed is all the leads trying to do a Boston accent and you had JN talking like...JN.

Jack used a Boston accent in Departed. A bad one, but he used it. Who cares though! He's Jack Nicholson! Great in pretty much everything. I watched the Shining the other day, and the scene where he talks to Lloyd the bartender the first time is absolutely outstanding. One of my favorite little scenes in all of cinema. I love how he delivers each line. 

 

 

 

This scene plays better within the flow of the movie. Still love it though.

Worst Boston accents in a movie were Diane Lane and Mark Wahlberg in the Perfect Storm.  Christ Markie Mark, your from Dorchester!  At least Diane had an excuse.

Amazing scene. One of my favorites of all time.

Never saw "The Shining" all the way through yet. Though I really liked the "Departed". I am ok with Jack as an actor, I think he's a bit strong handed from time to time. To me his best roll was in "As Good as it Gets".

"The Shining" is a GREAT movie! Strong handed is kinda Jack's calling card! He made "ham fisted" cool.

Sorry, but this is a hilarious statement.  I know it's an opinion, but if you thing his best role is in "As Good as it Gets", you need an education in Jack Nicholson.  Decent movie, but light years away from his best performance. 

 

Every single one of these is better than "As Good as it Gets"::

 

Five Easy Pieces

One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest

East Rider

The Shining 

The Last Detail

Prizzi's Honor

Chinatown

Terms of Endearment

Batman

About Schmidt 

The Passenger

The Pledge 

The Crossing Guard

 

Those are just off the top of my head.

Oh, wow, forgot all about Prizzi's Honor. Awesome flick, Kathleen Turner at her hottest!!!

Well, since I have seen ONE of those movies, of course I would think his best would be the ones I have seen him in. Kinda makes sense right? ;-)

 

Like I said, I am not a big Jack Nicholson fan.
