Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Kevin Costner!

Nov. 19, 2012by: Johnny Moreno

Welcome to Movie Jail, a facility like any other, only its inmates are Hollywood writers, directors, actors and producers. This column will serve as a Movie Jail trial. We will put one defendant on trial; lay out arguments for the Prosecution and Defense. And we leave it up to YOU, the reader, to decide whether the defendant is guilty of his or her crime. What crime? The crime of consistently being a stinking shithouse.

The Defendant


Kevin Costner

The Case

The Prosecution: Swing Vote, The Guardian, The Upside of Anger, Dragonfly, Rumor Has It, Message in a Bottle, For Love of the Game, The Company Men*

You might be surprised by Mr. Costner being thrown on trial, but his name has been brought up here and there and we think we can make a good case for his conviction. First off, what happened to this guy? The man started things off with a bang, basically taking the proverbial bull by the horns and forcing himself into leading man territory with 1987's The Untouchables as Elliot Ness. He then went on to own the late 80s and early 90s, but somewhere around 1997's The Postman (a so-so film), Costner lost his footing and wound up in romantic comedy territory. Up until then Mr. Costner had the 1-2 punch of leading man looks and charm, with overall "man's man" credibility. So did he lean on his looks for the last part of the 90s and into the oughts? We think so. Since then he's had a few moments with bringing the Hatfield and McCoys to the small screen, a nice turn in Mr. Brooks and while The Company Men was a decent movie, that was more of an ensemble performance than a great Kevin Costner performance. The prosecution feels it's time to throw Mr. Costner in a Scared Straight situation to get him back on the track of righteousness once again.

The Defense: Wyatt Earp, Dances With Wolves, A Perfect World, No Way Out, Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, The Untouchables, The Bodyguard, JFK, Silverado, A Perfect World*

Ladies and Gentleman of the jury, the defense feels Mr. Costner has simply done more good than bad. This is no different than our cases against Val Kilmer, Nic Cage, and John Travolta. These are all solid actors who've had some ups and downs in their career and at the end of the day, were convicted of no crime. And we think the same should be said for Mr. Kevin Costner. His run from 1987 and 1997 is so impressive, we're wondering why the hell Mr. Costner is even on trial. His creepy role in Mr. Brooks was a nice change of pace and his move into producing an Emmy award winning miniseries shows that he's branching out into other avenues. Seriously, the prosecution needs to get its shit together.

IN CLOSING...

So, whatís to be done with Mr. Kevin Cosnter? Could he benefit from a year or two in Movie Jail? Is his legacy solid enough to escape prosecution? And the most important question to be asked, once all evidence is taken into consideration, we ask you The Jury, is Kevin Costner GUILTY or NOT GUILTY? Letís hear YOUR arguments, either side, by STRIKING BACK BELOW.

*The court recognizes that all movies are subjective, so relax.

WHAT SAY YOU, GUILTY OR NOT?


LAST WEEK'S VERDICT

In what could be the closest decision in Movie Jail History, the court finds Roland Emmerich NOT GUILTY of all charges. Early on, the jury was definitely swayed by the defense's argument that Mr. Emmerich's films were non-sensical horseshit, but late in deliberation, the overall love of Independence Day and the willingness to forgive said "horseshit", was enought to tip the votes just slightly to a 22-26 acquittal of charges.

Open Range/Mr. Brooks are GREAT movies..

Not guilty for sure. He's laid more than an egg or two but has the chops to turn it around for sure.. Open Range is on my list of once I come across it, I have to finish it no matter how late it is or what point it is in the movie. Here's hoping he permanently returns to the right track. Hollywood desperately needs some of it's leading men to be more selective with their work. Can't see him having a HUGE role in Man of Steel but still sounds like a smart move if this movie is what we all

Nope, the dude was in the doghouse in the late 90's/early 00's but i feel he's been on a steady uphill ascent since directing "Open Range" and then his awesome turn as Mr. Brooks. This guy is on the verge of a major comeback not movie jail sentenacing!

I say not guilty.

But what I am really interested in is all the hate on For The Love of the Game. It was a great take on a biopic (admittedly not a real person), but I found it to be one of Costners best roles, movies. And I don't understand the hate on it. Can someone enlighten me?

Besides many great movies in his film career that would grant him an out-of-jail free pass even his so-so movies are better than most and guilty pleasures of many like The Guardian, Tin Cup, The Bodyguard, Waterworld and Message in a Bottle. Then again Open Range has less than 10 years, Mr. Brooks was great and Man of Steel and Jack Ryan are just around the corner so this trial is really uncalled for.

While some of Costner's movies (and performances) aren't stellar, he has proven that he doesn,'t want to be pigeon holed into the same genre forever; what's wrong with a rom-com every now and then? Also his performances in the amazing "Mr. Brooks" and the so-so but well acted "The Guardian" prove he never lost it.

Costner has such great charisma that even his worst films are decent since he's in them. The worst you could say about the movies listed by the prosecution are that they're underwhelming, but I don't consider any to be out-right bad. The only complaint I have about the man is that he should be directing more. Dances with Wolves and Open Range are fantastic, and I even enjoy The Postman.

Candidates worth arguing over:
As previously mentioned Katherine Heigl, M. Night Shyamalan, Ivan Reitman
also
Kevin James
Mel Gibson
Garry Marshall
Catherine Hardwicke
Mickey Rourke
Julia Roberts
Paul W.S. Anderson
Milla Jovovich

P.S.
These are all people who would likely stir up the Guilty/Not Guilty pot a lot more than Kevin Costner or Jim Carrey, and with a few exceptions, I think they could be fairly debatable picks.

I agree with my esteemed colleague Doctor Supertramp. Furthermore, Stratburst makes an excellent suggestion. As to the defendant in question, throw this case out. The guy has done some great work... the sheer ambition of Dances With Wolves alone should be enough to keep him conviction-free for a while longer at least. Oh, and then there's The Untouchables, Field Of Dreams, A Perfect World, No Way Out, Bull Durham et al. Plus he's about to be Clark Kent's dad FFS.
In closing, I will leave you

Kevin Costner is a great actor, everyone has a bad role now and then but he is still the best live action Robin Hood I've seen and Waterworld is severely under rated and was panned by critics only due to its enormous budget. I loved Hatfields and McCoys and cant wait to see him in Man of Steel.

I'm having a thought. Wouldn't this column be better served by finding people who actually deserve to be put on trial, so that the vote can actually be fun. Instead of just picking someone to do each week. I'd much rather wait for a good candidate than just have one each week. Otherwise, the NOT GUILTY side is just going to fill up. We are forgiving people. It only takes one movie to change our minds. Let the column be interesting instead of weekly.

Mr. Kevin Costner is found NOT GUILTY

Kevin Costner doesn't have the best filmography, but when the guy chooses the right role he is a damn good actor. When Costner is on, the movie becomes entertaining. Bull Durham alone gets him a pass in my book. Add to that Field of Dreams, Tin Cup, JFK, The Untouchables and getting to be Johnathan Kent; the guy has been a stud when the movie is right. The guy shouldn't even be up for movie jail.

Kevin Costner is not the greatest actor ever, and back in the day my family loved to make fun of him and his tendency to butcher accents (while there are some obvious examples of this, his filmography isn't as one-note as we made out). While Dragonfly is a steaming pile of horse dung, and Message in a Bottle made me embarrassed to be from the same state as Nicholas Sparks (and subsequently avoid all future adaptations of his work), Costner has embraced the turn in his career where he no longer

While Dragonfly is a steaming pile of horse dung, and Message in a Bottle made me embarrassed to be from the same state as Nicholas Sparks (and subsequently avoid all future adaptations of his work), Costner has embraced the turn in his career where he no longer is the box-office draw he once was. There is nothing wrong with that, in fact, it's admirable. Looking back, he's been in some serious classics (The Untouchables, Field of Dreams, Dances With Wolves, JFK), and actually surprised me with 3000 Miles to Graceland (an admittedly not great movie). While it was a style-over-substance Xerox of a Tarantino knock-off, he chewed the scenery in a way I didn't know he had in him. With The Upside of Anger he garnered acclaim while moving into more character-based roles. Which while not necessarily leading to bigger, better roles, did give him a chance to take a few risks he hadn't really tried during the height of his career. Unlike some actors, I don't think he comes off as washed-up. If anything, he's criminally underused, which I hope will change after Man of Steel comes out.

It is tough to say not guilty, so much of his stuff is easily dismissable as crap. But on closer inspection he has many more good films than bad. Last I saw The Hatfields and McCoys was fricking great. I mean top notch acting. As terrible as Waterworld was you get A Perfect World. JFK was amazing, Field of Dreams and of course Dances With Wolves. His complete body of work is solid. And the Hatfields & McCoys shows he still has it.

Not Guilty and the defendant should sue the court for restitution.

Its become so lazy and cliche to say that he sucks. I say boo to that notion. Untouchables, Bull Durham, Thirteen Days, Open Range. Even Waterworld is good if you can forgive the 'complete ripoff from Road Warrior' thing. I was majorly bummed when he dropped out of Django Unchained and I think Man of Steel is shaping up to be a pitch perfect role for him.

Why even bothering to continue if everyone voted Nic Cage a pass, i mean the term was made for him and his career this last decade, so if they cant find him guilty no one will be found gulity.

to me, his career as always been steadily bland. I know a lot of people will say "Swing State" sucked, and "Robin Hood" was awesome. But i never really care for his movies either way. Nothing has been terrible, but nothing as been stand out good either.

However, two cases that make him officially not guilty in my eyes. "Hatfields and McCoys" was a pretty damn good series. And he's playing Jonathan Kent in next years "Man of Steel". This superman movie could really make and break the careers

Half of the movies the prosecution has listed are more than acceptable (Swing Vote, Company Men, The Guardian), I'd even call The Upside of Anger good.

Some of the others are perhaps a little shady, but they usually have Costner as one of the few redeeming qualities.

In conclusion: not guilty.
