Quote from: mothman on December 11, 2021, 11:26:45 PMWhile on the subject of the Stath, I wonder if he'll ever be considered a true Star? The Rock seems to have made it, and it's Fasting and Furiousing that's finally done that - the same films that also had Statham in. But I saw a trailer on TV for his latest film coming out on Prime, and it looks like exactly the sort of film you'd expect Jason Statham to be in and has been in for about the past twenty years. The Meg wasn't a Jason Statham film, it was a giant fucking shark film with Jason Statham in.
Quote from: Dusty Substance on December 11, 2021, 09:13:47 PMI just watched the first two Marvel Thor movies for the first time and was reminded of Kat Dennings. She was kind of touted as a next big thing circa 2010, did a couple of faux indie films (anyone remember Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist?), then the two Thors (in which she has really good chemistry with co-star Natalie Portman - Was surprised they weren't cast as sisters, as they had a similar look and it would've been a nice balance of siblings to brothers Thor and Loki) and then....nothing. A bunch of TV work but no films. A shame, as she had a good look - The lips and curves of Angelina Jolie, mixed with the indie schmindie sensibility of Zooey Deschanel - And had acting talent.

Quote from: Andy147 on December 12, 2021, 01:35:28 PMIIRC the Last of the Summer Wine book by Andrew Vine says that back in the 1940s/50s Bill Owen had been a movie star that never was.
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on December 12, 2021, 02:04:27 PMThe Nick to her Nora, Michael Cera has done some indie films and a small, but good, role in Molly's Game over the past decade, but Scott Pilgrim bombing really slammed the brakes on his career. It feels like a testament to how much his star has waned that Zombieland 2 didn't even get him in to play the bizarro version of Jesse Eisenberg.

Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on December 16, 2021, 01:11:32 PMI think of watching that film about once a week, as I've a framed copy of The Diarrhea Times from Nathan For You on my wall that has a picture and review of the film, but I then completely forget about it. Today might just be the day that changes though...
Quote from: dead-ced-dead on December 12, 2021, 06:51:18 AMThe Stath certainly is the B-movie non-union equivalent of someone like The Rock.Same with Gerard Butler, too. Both seem to be aware of their limitations and rather than bemoan their place, seem to embrace their status as the Chuck Norris/JCVD place in the world.
Quote from: dead-ced-dead on December 16, 2021, 01:27:50 PMIt's quite a cute film. Made during the skinny-jeaned dogdays of indie rock, so it's a fairly nice time capsule.
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on December 19, 2021, 02:53:47 AMRosanna Arquette had a pretty good 80s, I guess?I just watched "Ghost Hunters" from 2016, apparently a Google Play original movie (?), and it's a who's-who of almost stars. Jon Heder, Justin Long and David Krumholtz (who was the lead on a big budget network show for like 7 years) all seem to have found their level in gentle indie things like this, but at one time they could have headlined a movie and you'd probably not have been too surprised.
Quote from: mothman on December 19, 2021, 12:37:10 AMWatching Desperately Seeking Susan tonight, it occurs to me there's a case for Rosanna Arquette and Aidan Quinn to be in this thread. Both feel like they could have been really big - but weren't.
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on December 19, 2021, 04:35:12 PMI watched Bad Boys for Life yesterday, which had Vanessa Anne Hudgens in a third string role. It seemed like she was primed to be a bigger name at one point.
