Top 10: Be4 they were stars #2

01.04.2008by: Matt Withers
Well here we are, the first Top 10 of 2008. I've decided to go the inspirational route this time and take a look at where some of our biggest stars came from genre-wise. As you'll see, no one no matter how big a star manages to avoid having a few skeletons in the closet.

So as you work on your resolutions for 2008 - whether it's completing that new screenplay, getting a role in a movie that's not financed by your best friend with free passes to the AMC that he snagged while working projection there, or just getting your gf/bf to finally love giving head - remember that all big achievements started out as crazy dreams and lofty goals.

So get out there and do that thing that you've been wanting to do. It's a new year a'comin'. What better reason do you need? For the holidays make sure to be safe 'cause I know ya'll won't be good ;-) And Spit Bullets on your plans and resolutions. We wanna know!



5. Jennifer Aniston, LEPRECHAUN

The best part of this movie by far is seeing Aniston with her pre-Friends nose. It was a running joke on that show, but there's no question that she would not have the career she has today without getting that honker realigned. I leave the relative merits of that truth to ya'll to discuss. She's actually not too bad in the flick, although her performance makes it clear why she wasn't getting better offers at the time.

4. Kevin Bacon, FRIDAY THE 13TH

The only downside to Kevin Bacon's momentary status as non-corpse in the original FRIDAY THE 13TH is that you're getting no help in your 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon game from this movie. That's not to say he makes a big impression with his performance, in fact given his skill on celluloid now it's a pretty amusing look into how far his skill has come along. Still, his death is my favorite in the film, and guarantees I will never lay down in a camp bed without looking under it first!

3. Phillip Seymour Hoffman, MY BOYFRIEND'S BACK

This flick is more of a comedy than a horror movie, but it does revolve around a zombie. Better than that it has Phillip Hoffman, no Seymour yet, as a psychotic bully who mostly acts semi-retarded and checks out by whacking himself with an axe. Just. Plain. Awesome. Another bonus is that the film is a helluva good time. One of my all time favorite relatively obscure flicks.

BONUS APPEARANCE: Matthew Fox, Renee Zellweger, Matthew McConaughey

2. Leonardo DiCaprio, CRITTERS 3

TITANIC heartthrob DiCaprio is best remembered as causing a splash with the double barrel of THIS BOY'S LIFE and WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE. It is well deserved praise, but that doesn't mean he couldn't pay some dues in the most execrable of the CRITTERS movies (which let's be honest, takes some effort). If Leo had just done a little bit poorer job in the flick then he mighta had a chance at Numero Uno on this list. Sadly, he manages to showcase he's got talent, even in one of the most excruciating genre watches of all time.


What?! Tyler Durden was in an 80's slasher? Yep. CUTTING CLASS presents the perfect example of what this list is all about. The movie is a throw away slasher, but is entertainingly bad so you don't have to suffer through it. And Pitt is the male lead so you get plenty of his surprisingly high pitched voice (his balls hadn't dropped yet I guess). On top of that his performance is full of scenery chewing and all the manic over-gesturing that led him to take on semi-psycho roles until he got it under control. A true pleasure from start to finish for BTWS fans!
