    Default Do you still consider Robert De Niro one of the greats?

    We all know Godfather, Raging Bull, Goodfellas ect..

    But, he has made so many horrific films...

    Do you still consider him an all-time great actor????

    Yes.

    He simply doesn't care anymore, about critical accolades.

    He seems desperate for cash these days. Why all these turds at his age???

    Right now I'm watching a STEAMING TURD called "Machete" on IFC. Really awful.

    So bad....I have to watch 'til the end.

    Deniro is in Eddie mode. Living off his greatest hits.
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    He still has young ones too.

    Money is probably the main factor now. Not a shitty script.

    Sucks for many of us but he's happy when looking at his bank account.

    I don' think it is the money. He wants to work and he takes what is available to him. Hollywood is not kind to anyone over the age of 50

    I agree. Had not thought of that.

    Deniro isn't immune.

    I haven't seen a recent film of his, I don't think. Daisy is right. He probably just wanted to work. He'll always be considered A-list.

    I watched Midnight Run yesterday, for the millionth time. What a good movie.

    He's doing a lot of straight to video movies nowadays and yet still does mainstream as well. I just watched him in The Intern and he was real good.
    But I agree, with him I think he mostly just wants to work

    I love Bobby D!
    My feeling is ever since his cancer scare he seems to be taking a lot of "fun" roles. I'm sure he doesn't need the money and considering the intensity he used to put himself through mentally and physically for roles he might just be looking to have some fun now.

    One person's turd is another one's treasure! I know lots of Linkers don't like him in comedy roles - but I think he is fab in the "Analyze This" and "Focker" films!

    Also, I loved him in "Awakenings" and "A Bronx Tale".
