Cusack: 10 good movies

09.06.2007
I wonder if it has anything to do with not getting the Night Owl role (that he seemed to kinda want) in WATCHMEN that made John Cusack come out and say that he only gets offered 'wise-cracking slacker' roles. I doubt it, but I that's how I think because I jump to stupid conclusions (not on a mat) and I just wanted to share my thought process with you.

Anyway, speaking to The Guardian, Cusack confessed that he thinks he's only made 10 good movies. And apparently 40 that suck, because the man's made well over 50 films in his long career. "I'm sure you know which ones they are. The ones that suck I tend to blank out. It's like I never even made them, he said. Well, I don't want to try and guess at which those are, I'll leave that to you schmoes. All I'll say is that I loved EIGHT MEN OUT, HIGH FIDELITY, SAY ANYTHING, THE GRIFTERS, THE THIN RED LINE and like everyone else, GROSSE POINT BLANK. Actually I even kinda have a soft spot for SERENDIPITY (they reached for the same glove!). I don't know if the guy's right, but I don't care. So long as he keeps making movies like the upcoming WAR INC, I'll be happy. Click HERE for the full interview.
Extra Tidbit: Acting allowed Cusack to meet and subsequently date Claire Forlani. So no matter what happens, his career is already a success in my book.

ah well

I always liked the guy, even though it looks like he's only aged about an hour in the past 20 years.

How can he forget his legendary performance as Lane Meyer in BETTER OFF DEAD!
That performance is the stuff of comedy gold!
SHAME ON YOU MR CUSACK

what? no love for Pushing Tin? anyone think that's on his "best of" list?

actually, i kind of like that movie. his character is classic Cusack, it's got a little Cate Blanchett looking good, and it has a topless Angelina back before she turned into a baby-collecting skeleton. good stuff

I love his movies where's he's the "wisecracker" (not wise cracker as in smart white guy) i'll agree he does get those roles a lot, but only because he's so awesome at them.

And, "Grace is Gone" looks great. He's not crakinig wise so there's diversity for you, Mr. Cusack.

10 great Cusack Movies

In my opinion, they are:
The Sure Thing, Better Off Dead, Eight Men Out, The Grifters, Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity, Grosse Point Blank, Identity, Bullets Over Broadway, and of course, Say Anything...
Honorary Mention: Sixteen Candles (he has a small role in it).

I could think of a few, don't know about ten that I've seen, then again I missed a lot of his earlier work.

Grosse Pointe Blank, Being John Malkovich, Eight Men Out, Bullets Over Broadway, High Fidelity, Stand By Me, and I guess if you wanna count The Thin Red Line, sure. Like I say, as much as a love the guy, I haven't seen all that many of his movies.

I got ten I think???

I wish stars would just come out and say the truth, he thinks he only made 10 good films. The rest of us will decide for ourselves how many good films he has made. Like annihillst, I love better off dead and I know it is not on John's list of good movies he was in. Relax John, I've enjoyed everything that you've done, some of it I have even loved (One Crazy Summer??? Anyone???).

well, i know..

...at least one of the ones he hates is Better Off Dead, which is like Jesus saying he never really liked the 12 apostles. blasphemy.

i enjoy many of John's characters, but the real man seems to act rather "dickish" from time to time.
