    Yeah, I realise I was being a bit unfair about his acting. First role and 5 years ago.

    I just don't like him.

    He comes across as overly cocky and pompous.

    Can anyone recommend me a really good documentary? Recently I've watched Last Train Home, Best Worst Movie and King of Kong and pretty much loved them all - so I'm looking to continue the documentary binge.

    was like an eye-gasm.

    Though the bit where what's-his-name comes riding on the orange-dragon-thing and reels off this amazing speech about uniting clans and vanquishing the foes who threaten the mother soil (or something), made me laugh :teehee:


    EDIT: Forgot to mention. I watched 500 Days of Summer last night. Now that is a good film.

    I swear this thread is just turning into massive deja vu. Every time I look at there seems to be the same conversations happening about The Adjustment Bureau.

    So you guys heard of this new film called The Adjustment Bureau? Looks good, like a cross between Inception and other thrillers.

    Although he does have roles in 'Now' and rumoured to have a role in 'The Seventh Son'.

    If he can pull off a decent performance in these he might move up a notch.

    The thing is Christian Bale can act therefore i can forgive him for acting like a **** on set.

    true, true - Bale can play an angry, frustrated man past breaking point so well in so many roles that I wonder if he's even acting at times

    got quite the temper on him

    Do you really think anyone's in a position to judge whether or not Pettyfer can act? If Dreamworks are still backing him they must see something in him, and from the little I've ever seen of him he's impressed me more than someone like Shia LeBouef ever has.

    I can forgive Bale for his outburst because he apologised unreservedly. Were he to have been convicted of assault in 2008, I'd be less likely to forgive that.

    Having watched some Pettyfer films, Shia LeBouef is a better actor than Alex Pettfyer.

    Alex Pettyfer isn't a bad actor imo but he needs more roles and experience simply enough, there's almost no excuse for his diva like behaviour if these rumours are true. Just needs time really

    and to not be a douchebag
