MOVIE POLL: Do you still like Mel Gibson?

02.02.2010

Do you still like Mel Gibson?

Always have, always will!
I used to love him, now I just "like" him
I lost some respect for him, but he seems to have "paid his dues", so I dig him again!
I'm half-half on the guy
I never really liked him and still don't
I used to love/like him, but have lost total respect for him now!
F*ck that guy and the anti-semitic horse he rode in on!
Dig him as an actor/director, could CARE LESS about his personal life

The things he said were really just completely stupid and drunken. Anyone who still has something against the guy, after so many years and apologies, and in spite of his accomplishments as a filmmaker, well they're just being silly.

This is really a poorly worded question. The question should have been: "Has Mel Gibson's behavior caused you to lose interest in seeing his films?" I think people would answer that question very differently. Speaking only for myself. His behavior has definitely caused me to like him less as a person, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't go see him on screen if the film looked good. I feel the same way about Tom Cruise. He's a total nut job off screen, but his movies still rock.

just goes to show that as long as it doesn't have an affect on their lives people are willing to turn a blind eye to anything. Mad Max was awesome...but come on.

Mad Mel

Mel Gibson has been and forever will be the man. Who hasn't said some zany shit while they are drunk? If I was held accountable for my drunken exploits all these years then I would have died a long time ago.

I am totally shocked by these poll reusults /sarcasm/

I have liked some of Mel's movies, but overall I don't like him much as an actor, and even less as a person.

I could care less about what Mel Gibson does off screen. It drives me crazy when people say they won't go see a certain actors movie b/c he is sexist/racist (Gibson) or b/c he has lost his mind (Tom Cruise). I go to the movies to be entertained, not for a morality lesson. What the Hollywood looney tunes do in their personal lives are of no consequence to me. Based on pure entertainment, Mel Gibson is still one of the most alpha actors in the business.

@NO_FUN

Here in the UK plenty of people were angry at Israel that week for invading Lebanon and killing hundreds of cilivilians. Unfortunately for Mel he was pissed-up and blamed 'Jews' in general. Don't judge him based on his father's rants.

Though I enjoyed Apocolyptica, the guy is a sexist and a racist, if anyone had of said those things they'd not be allowed in the public eye again. It's not a case of 'I was drunk, sorry.' He blamed all the world's problems on one group of people, there isn't enough alchol in the world to get you that drunk.

Legend:)

The guy is a movie legend. From his directing talents: Passion of the Christ, Apocalypto, Braveheart to his amazing performances in Leathal Weapon, Braveheart, Ransom, The Man without a face and Signs. He's an absolute legend and a decent bloke. I love the guy, flaws and all.

Have you really done worse than gotten drunk and blamed all the world's problems on one group of people. If so, surely you should be in jail.

"paid his dues"

LOL! Love Mel, always will. Fuck the haters. People should remind themselves what the real international headline was when Mel got drunk. (Lebanon War, geez)

I actually like that he has the guts to speak his mind, and not be politically correct like the rest of the drones in hollywood. He was Mad Max, come on!

I dig Mel Gibson...he's a great actor and an excellent filmmaker. Okay so he said some stupid shit in a drunken haze, who hasn't? Only the self-righteous I guess. Tom Cruise is a loon, but man he makes a good movie. Just like anyone else they have the right to their opinion and their right to express it no matter how much we disagree with what or how they're expressing it. We're not their friends, we don't know them personally. Who cares...

Roman Polanski on the other hand crossed a moral

Roman Polanski on the other hand crossed a moral line that I cannot accept. I refuse to watch anything he makes and cannot understand those who choose to work with this pedophile either. She was 13 man...grim.

Honestly?

I could give a fuck less what ANY actor has to say off screen.

Im glad that you added that last option because I don't care about any celebrity's personal life and I don't get why some people do.

Riiiiiiiiggs!

Riggs, Mad Max, and now Craven. How could you not like him?

I've always maintained you should keep an actor's personal life separate from their characters. Which is why I also still love Tom Cruise.

Any kind of bigotry = not cool

But Mel does bring the goods as an actor/director. Braveheart, Apocalypto, Mad Max, Lethal Weapon, Chicken Run, Hamlet, Payback, Ransom, Gallipoli . . . some great movies there.

Braveheart = greatest movie ever

I find myself more interested in his directing jobs currently, but there's no denying he's a great actor as well. Only he could make something like What Women Want somewhat watchable.
