    None of those movies are classic

    7 pounds was boring and Ali was mostly interesting due to the figure Ali was

    compare it to Ray

    but i do find it noteworthy that of the top 30 highest grossing films, johhny depp has 4 i think, and Leo 2. Smith 0.


    i think a case could be made for both Smith and Leo as to which has more range, but i think its undeniable that Depp 🤬 on both of 'em

    Will Smith got rarefied charisma, so I know he can play a much more epic villain than Denzel if he chose to do so. Son is great.

    hell naw
    I'm not doubting will but no way could he pull it off as cleanly and genuine as denzel did in TD....

    @Matt Depp is a much better actor then Leo, so is Tom Hanks.

    Depp and Smith its hard to say who's better IMO

    R.D. Jr is a really good actor to.

    Smith is top 3 and Leo is top 10 IMO.

    LOL @ Will Smith being "great" actor and "Top 3"

    None of the man's films are memorable or even classic. Just disposable blockbusters

    MIB3 was good but it'll be forgotten like it never dropped

    Good azzz read. Soooooo pretty dude is saying is that Will Smith was smart enough to take advantage of Hollywood, figured out the formula way ahead of everybody else, used it to his advantage, took advantage of the studios before they did it to him, made BOOKOO BUCKS, and if pretty much kickin back laughin his azzz off at Hollywood now?

    Genius. Can't hate him for figuring all that out. Being the goofiness, lies a brotha that scored 1600 on his SAT's. Respect this brotha's intellect.

    how a movie does at the box office is not indicative of its quality.

    Your opinion.

    That doesn't mean he's not a great actor.
    He can be funny, dramatic, serious, and everything else. Not to many actors can act at every end of the spectrum.

    That Jewish dude Adam 🤬 earns 20 milli a movie and I consider him the worst actor I've ever seen with his terrible films

    Will coulda done MIB3 and Django as well. Hell, you got guys shooting 4-5 films a year.

    I don't think he has the 🤬 for some films


    Jamie >> Will

    Soooo Will is being criticized cause he turn down a slave role? And u cant compare beggar vance to this....maybe will didnt want to be involved in a movie that involved 🤬 & racial slurs. As for the trailer goes to show how gullible people are they play some 70's shaft like music edit a few jokes in and yall think think the movie is going to be all fine and dandy...i saw black women being dragged in the trailer....but its cool I get it as long as whitey 🤬 get it in thee end it makes it all right...

    Wait 🤬 in here sayin' Will > Leo?

    nah man...from '90 to now...Top 5 under 60 in no order

    Tom Hanks
    Denzel
    Leo
    Brad Pitt
    Johnny Depp

    Will is a quality actor, no doubt...but these guys have had diverse roles...Roles where they are completely different people from themselves...Brad Pitt as Achilles...as an Irish street fighter in Snatch...Southern soldier in Inglourious...Denzel as Malcolm X...the Lawyer in Philadelphia...villain in Training Day...Hanks: Forrest Gump, Road to Perdition, Green Mile...Leo; Django, Revolutionary Road, Blood Diamond...Depp; nuff said

    Will can't match these guys' diversity...Or hasn't yet

    Neither one is better than the other. Both can act, and both can do better.

    I'm only confused by this guy saying Leo has had a better career, and that Will disappointed fans by not following.

    Who cares if he worked with better directors? Leo is the lead role in all his movies, and gets out shined.
    Will is the lead in all his movies...because he is literally THE star. Neither one of them are moving forward...

    Will is the cool, funny, likeable good guy. Leo is the squinty eyed emo face, mysterious & philosophical tortured soul.

    It's what the people want, and combined...both of them have created the best cure for insomnia.
