Quotes: Bad Bad Acting

By the way, I call him 'Triple H' and not, 'Arlo Jayne' because while watching, not for a second could I suspend my disbelief that the main character wasn’t Hunter Hearst Helmsley. The Game shows less emotional range in this entire film than in a typical promo, displaying approximately three emotions: cool and collected, slightly perturbed, and in physical pain. (And even then, there’s not a whole lot of difference among the three. Quick, try to guess what he’s doing in this scene. Give up? The correct answer is, 'getting shot.')

I watched The Other Woman the other day and Kate Upton had the charisma of an ingrown nipple hair and she made the driftwood in the beach scenes look like they were alive and full of emotions. It was so bad that it was performance art.

Chris: Magneto’s 'whoops, you’re human now, l8er boo' reaction to Mystique getting shot is completely at odds with his characterization.
Matt: McKellen’s face when he tells Mystique she’s not “one of us” anymore, like this is the movie Freaks, has the weirdest expression he’s had in one of these movies. It’s the first time he doesn’t know how to play something.
Chris: He just falls back on a little thing he likes to call “The Evil Gandalf” and calls it an afternoon.
—Chris Sims and Matt Wilson on X-Men 3: The Last Stand

Its important that you watch Robert Beltran’s performance very carefully in this episode because you can see an actor who has completely given up on the show he is tied to. He doesn’t just sound bored, he’s practically comatose and doesn’t bother to inject any emotion into his (admittedly functional) dialogue. Even when his face turns to goo he barely registers any pain or response....'The Demon class planet! One of our more interesting missions!’ – proof that even as a replicant Chakotay still talks absolute bollocks.
Doc Oho on Star Trek: Voyager, "Course: Oblivion"

Owen: Roooar! Monster noises!
Alejandro: (awkwardly) Oh no! The large out-of-shape monster!
Tyler: (screaming) WE MUST RUN!
Noah (in complete monotone) Think of the childreeen.
Izzy: (excitedly) He's so hooooot!

Hibiki: *walking like a robot, with small circular eyes*
Kanade: *completely natural* Hey, Hummy. Where were you before coming here?
Hibiki: *monotone, with straight mouth* Did you do anything suspicious?
Kanade: !! Wait a moment, Hummy! *ran off with Hibiki* What was that acting!? That was so shady that she'll figure it out instantly!
Hibiki: I can't help it! I suck at lying!
Kanade: Can't you do something about it!?
Hibiki: I'm trying my best!
