  • Bad Acting.

    Ok, Ok. Is it me or is the acting in some of the now infamous films really bad. I mean films like Friday 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Jaws (Theme emerging here!!)
    What I mean is, why does there seem to be lots of pauses and over the top emotions etc. It almost seems like they are making it up as the go along. Even to a certain degree some scenes in the original Star Wars (Controversial I know!!)

    Or is it because I'm just old now!!

    Re: Bad Acting.

    One way of comparing bad acting is by watching a few films or series where the same actor appears - how much does it change, and do they look like a different person as a result?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

            His bite is worse than his bark.

                  And he doesn't even come from Finland.

                  I know what you mean though.
