  1. Joaquin Phoenix is one of the best, if not the best, working actors today.

    Although I do like Giovanni's work.

  4. Definetly Ribsi. Phoenix is acting like such a juvenile, arrogant ass in real life it's hard to forget when I see him on screen. If he was a great actor I would, but he is merely a good one.

    1. I can see your point. We all have at least one actor whose personal life hinders how we perceive them on the big screen.

  5. I kinda wish Ribisi would be in more stuff as he is awesome, but I gotta go with Phoenix in terms of acting chops. His last few roles have been amazing and his turn in The Master has possibly solidified him as an A-lister.

    1. I am surprised that Ribisi has not gotten more leading roles. I thought he did a phenomenal job as the lead in both Boiler Room and I Love Your Work.

    2. i totally agree. he for sure needs more roles. he is so good at playing a sinister guy too, like in Contraband...even though that film was crap, he was good. Same thing with his brief cameo in Ted.

  6. Ribisi is great, but Phoenix delivered the performance of a lifetime in The Master.

    1. I am planning on catching The Master this weekend. Looking forward to seeing what type of performance P.T. Anderson managed to get out of Phoenix.

  7. Joaquin Phoenix, obviously. I like Giovanni Ribisi but Phoenix is just a better actor.

  9. Oh good match up here. I think between the two, I'd go with Phoenix. Dude killed in The Master.

  10. Joaquin Phoenix, all the way. Nothing against Giovanni, just the overall quality of each film with Phoenix is more cohesive.
