    God I love well acted and executed movies and novels!

    ......I'm editing my post to add Will Smith on second though, he carried Independence Day, and shined in I Am Legend and I Robot. A little flat and 2-dimensional, but we literally see him get better with every movie.

    Daniel Day Lewis is probably our best living film actor. He's terrifying in Gangs of New York.
