Generally speaking, Hollywood tends to make money on their movies. Being the most recent and the most profitable of all time, consider James Cameron’s Avatar and let’s peg the budget of that film around $300 million, although I’ve seen varying numbers. When all was said and done, the film brought in just that $300 million short of $3 billion worldwide. I imagine producers sit in their big Hollywood chairs thinking that they will gladly spend hundreds of millions of dollars if it will bring in that kind of return but I wonder, which stands a reason that they must wonder, is it really worth that much money?

Due to it being tied, I am reposting JGL vs. Gosling. These guys have some serious fans.
So it has been a while since we had a head to head debate on Get Your Film Fix. The last time was Damon vs. DiCaprio which was so close we still need your votes to determine a winner. We debated the acting merits of Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio because we considered them two of, or maybe the single two greatest actors of their generation. Lately we have been thinking who is out there that is a bit (only a bit) younger than Damon and DiCaprio that could possible take over their throne. Two of our most talked about and favorite young actors are Joseph Gordon Levitt and Ryan Gosling. When the two actors are brought up together the next natural progression of the conversation becomes the Sophie’s Choice question; If I had to only pick one, who would it be?

I know in America you simply cannot thrive without a healthy ego. America likes winners and people who are boastful, just look at Charlie Sheen right now. People are heartily enjoying his bombast.

Just from seeing certain actors interviewed, I feel I can get a sense that they do or do not have a healthy sense humility. I know in today’s society you are thought to have low self esteem if you don’t think that every belch that comes out of you is a symphony, but I like people who are willing to understate their own achievements.
