Probably not a coincidence that they were both fans of the show. Dennis Hopper in Super Mario Bros. Hopper must've known that Waterworld was gonna suck. I mean, with lines like:
How can you classify his work on Four Rooms? Also his portrayal of Zorro is quite hammy. In particular, he gleefully chews the scenario whenever Alejandro gets drunk in The Legend of Zorro.
Alejandro in the sequel: No-one leaves my tequila worm dangling in the wind! In Spy Kids 2: From movie numero quatro: Just look at this! This is one of the biggest Chewing the Scenery scenes in cinema history.
Galgo from The Expendables 3who might be low-energy compared to other Banderas performances but it's still hammy for how much he speaks.
Take the scene where Belushi finally comes face to face with Carrie Fisher aka the Chick With the Flamethrower and throws himself on his knees to apologize: Oh, please, don't kill us! Please, please don't kill us! You know I love you baby. I wouldn't leave ya. It wasn't my fault!
You think you can talk your way out of this? I ran out of gas! I, I had a flat tire! I didn't have enough money for cab fare! My tux didn't come back from the cleaners!
An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car! How could we mention the good Mr. Belushi without talking about his most ludicrously over-the-top role ever: Hamlet is also notable.
He plays Hamlet, and so we get to hear him do the speech on how actors should act and be a Large Ham during it; we get to see him saw the air while urging the actors not to. This makes that speech more hilarious than was probably intended.
The scene with the two of them together is pure Ham-to-Ham Combat. His speech in his own adaptation of Henry V is especially good as he is supposed to be a Large Ham.
The audience can see that Branagh is loving it - as Henry does in the play.David Tennant's performance was nothing less than extraordinary, and if you don't believe me, then believe Sir Patrick Stewart who stated in interviews that David was the finest and most talented young actor in England today.
Ahhhh Draco The notorious young Slytherin pureblood who came onto the scene as Harry’s first real adversary and rival (if you want to call it that – *cough cough terrible seeker*).
Harry Keyishan has suggested that directors of Hamlet on screen invariably place it within one of the established film genres: Olivier's Hamlet, he claims, is a film noir; Zeffirelli's version is an action adventure and Branagh's is an epic.
What do the X's mean?
The X's just indicate the ones I either have not watched or I have watched but have no review or a puny review. It's just a way to keep me from buying two copies of the same movie.
