Despite carefully monitoring the movie reviews to get a clue if it’s worth the money or not, we still sometimes go to see flick we just know will be horrible. Why do we do this? I don’t know about you but I do it for the stars. At least you’re going to enjoy your favorite celebs, if the movie turns out to be awful.
Here are 9 extraordinary actors who make even the worst movies watchable.
1. Mila Kunis
Maybe I’m partial because Mila Kunis is a ridiculously attractive, but hey, if that helps make a bad movie go faster – I’ll take it! Even “Jupiter Ascending” was slightly more palatable with Mila in it!
2. Anthony Hopkins
He may be old, but his skills are as stunning as the day he was born. Yes, that’s my way of saying Anthony Hopkins has been a genius since forever.
3. Ryan Reynolds
The only reason I watched “Green Lantern” until the end was because Ryan Reynolds was in it. And after “Deadpool” and “Detective Pikachu” that man will always be the best part of the movie.
4. Alan Rickman
Alan Rickman, may he rest in peace, was a real gem. Take “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”, for example. A very horrible movie… until Rickman enters the scene. When he said he was going to cut Robin’s heart out with a spoon, you freaking knew he wasn’t kidding!
5. Bruce Campbell
Ashy-Slashy is always a win. Ever since his early days in “Evil Dead” and “Xena: Warrior Princess”, I’ve been a big fan of his acting talent. I cannot tell you a single movie where Campbell’s charisma wouldn’t make it at least watchable, especially since most of his movies had the tiniest budgets.
6. Cate Blanchett
She made “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” look passable. If that doesn’t speak volumes about her talent I don’t know what will.
7. J.K. Simmons
J.K. Simmons is incredible in every single role he was cast in, from J Jonah Jameson to Commissioner Gordon. Everything he touches turns into gold.
8. Nicolas Cage
If you’re one of the haters, hit a brick. Cage is a genius and you know it. Just look at his latest movie “Mandy”. It’s a total mess visually and conceptually, but Nick Cage makes it not only watchable but also kinda awesome.
9. Tom Hardy
Tom Hardy usually is the best thing about the movie he’s starring in, and if he was able to save Venom (which he totally did), I’m putting him on the very top of this list!
