DeNiro if we're talking old movies but Jack edges him because although both have their share of sellout movies, DeNiro's post 90s resume is mostly pathetic and embarrassing.

I really liked Analyze This but Analyze That sucked.
Those films were the tipping point where he began the fall into the pit of mediocrity.

Didn't that Rocky & Bullwinkle crap come out between those two movies?

Yeah and a bunch of other crap, so Analyze This was the tipping point. Everything before that is good, great, high quality or at least solid, everything after it is either average, below average, poor, questionable, mediocre or just plain bad.

That's mostly true but The Fan wasn't very good. The 90s seemed to be the time of decline (though there were still a few very good flicks from him in there)

Well the tipping point could be earlier but I think The Fan would fit into the high quality area, high quality in terms of production and acting, I don't think De Niro is the problem with the film or Wesley Snipes. Analyze This is probably the tipping point because even the films immediately before it are pretty good at least, except for The Fan if you don't want to count it. And it seems like every film after that had something wrong with it that made it worse than anything before the tipping point.

Deniro.

It's a strong poll though. It's hardly like one is evidently weaker than the other...

Forgot to vote.
Went with Bobby only because he hit more home runs IMHO (despite striking out much more).

My thoughts exactly.

Both are very good if cast correctly. I think Dinero has been in some weaker movies over the years. I voted for him because I think he's more versatile.

He's still just JACK though. De Niro isn't a chameleon exactly, not in the way Alec Guinness was or Peter Sellers or Lawrence Olivier but he's created more characters that aren't just De Niro than Jack has.

He's on my list!
He needs a Rob Schneider type thread but I'm sure he'll get tons of love.
