Next to Aliens, this was Sigourney Weaver's best movie. - nallimcamybloc
She should have won an Oscar for this movie!
Yes. Sigi was amazing in "Gorillas in the Mist" but Aliens is special one! In 1986 She was really the best - AlexandrV 1 Comment
Really against your for her and she sort of switched the comedic role with Jim Carrey who is actually great as the "straigh guy" for a change in his stereotyped roles.
Perfect performance. Jessica Lange's performance was good but the movie was horrible. Oscar is never ready to give Jodie or Meryl their 3rd oscar. Jodie was robbed.
The scene with Haley Joel Osment in the car alone is enough for an Oscar win!
Helen Hunt was good but Kate Winslet was phenomenal
While Julia Roberts was clearly excellent and memorable in Erin Brockovich, I feel the performance is a bit overrated, especially when compared to Ellen Burstyn in Requiem for a Dream. Roberts is convincing as the sharp-tongued environmental activist, but as the plucky can-do yet vulnerable woman, it's both a role we've seen before and a role we've seen Roberts play before. On the contrary, Burstyn gave a mesmerizing performance as Sara Goldfarb, an aging woman desperate for the attention of her narcotics-dealing son and searching for a sense of purpose in her life since the death of her husband. Sara's life seems to take a turn for the better when she is invited to appear on her favorite television program, but first she must suppress her food addiction in order to fit in her husband's favorite red dress. As the movie progresses, we see Sara essentially lose her mind from diet pills as her refrigerator comes to life and people from the T.V. appear in her apartment to taunt her. ...more
