As a follow on from this thread: http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/...f-cleanup.html I have to say, I've never understood the dislike for Kevin Costner, and I do in fact like quite a lot of his films. Sure, he's had some absolute turkeys, but he's also had some greats under his belt too, and I think it's unfortunate that people only seem to focus on his disasters.
I mean, take The Untouchables for example, or Dances With Wolves, or Wyatt Earp, which granted doesn't hold a candle to Tombstone, but is still a good film in it's own right and Costner is damned good in it. He was excellent in Clint Eastwood's A Perfect World, and Oliver Stone's JFK. As a director, he's pretty damned excellent as well, considering Open Range was just about the best western in the last 10 years. And I even thought he was quite excellent in his turn as a serial killer in Mr. Brooks. I'm not denying he's had stinkers, although I'll gladly watch Waterworld for the cheese-fest it is, it's still a pretty awful film, but I don't think the guy gets enough credit for the good films he's done.

Maybe I'm alone here, but anyone else agree with me that Kevin Costner is actually quite a decent actor and has some very good films under his belt?
I dig 'em in 99% of his movies. I even liked Waterworld, but a lot of it has to do with whats-her-face being smoking hot in it.
