From the No Right Answer guys and the debate is Pirates of the Carribean 3 vs Matrix 3
But to be honest if you think Pirates 3 was bad watch fucking 4 worst thing ever
Also if we are gonna discuss this lets talk about it beyond just movies
Oh and inb4 mass effect 3 and Dark Knight Rises
There was no Matrix 3rd movie, they wisely considered the options and only made one movie. Because making any more movies would just lessen the impact of their Opus.
I was going to mention Highlander 3 as well, then I remembered how horrible Highlander 2: The Quickening was. To this day I have to pretend that movie never existed because it is so... well there are no words. One of the worst movies ever made. It is up there with Zardox.
At least with Zardoz, you can laugh about how awful it is. With Highlander 2, you can only cry...
It's interesting that both movies feature Sean Connery though (and in that connection one should probably also mention Sword of the Valiant). For me, those movies illustrate what seems to me to be a major difference between British and American actors.
The British approach to acting appears to be something like: "I'm an actor. Acting is my job. If you have a part for me, I'll happily accept it, and will act it to the best of my ability, regardless of how big a picture it is."
The American approach seems more like "I'm a star, who happens to be an actor. If you have a part for me, I may take it, if I think it's high-profile enough to benefit my career, and if my agent thinks it's a good idea. Of course, my name will have to be written pretty large on the poster, and you'd better have a huge paycheck ready for me."
This is naturally a gross generalization, but I do feel that British actors are generally not nearly as picky about the parts they accept as American actors are.
Hmm, and yet American actors wipe the floor with British actors and the American film industry is the largest in the world by far.
British actors have far fewer options than their American counterparts do unless they're a big enough star to come to the US. There's also fewer actors to compete against and a longer history of acting.
What's more, I used to act, and quite honestly, anybody behaving like you're suggesting isn't going to have a very long career or is going to be stuck in a niche role for the rest of their short careers. If you can name an actor the odds are very good that they're working their asses off, even if they do have bizarre demands and an ego the size of Texas.
