Snake Plisken is NOT CHEESE!  Watching "The Thing" special features tonight.

Ridiculous.

Escape from L.A. is 75% cheese, 100% stupid. That's equivalent to 1000% waste of time.
Escape from NY is where it's at.
But L.A. is still part of Snake's history

Missed the prior round, and sad to see Sean Penn isn't among the final 30.  I think he's the greatest actor working today.

Getting it to 10 was relatively easy for me, but then painful to cut another three.  Well, here's my 7 (alpha by first name):

Anthony Hopkins
Dustin Hoffman
Gary Oldman
Gene Hackman
Jack Nicholson
Robert DeNiro
Tom Hanks

Are you kidding?!

Snake Plissken is the epitomy of cheese.  In fact, in the dictionary, under cheese, it has a picture of Snake Plissken, and only THEN an actual picture of cheese.

Doesn't make him any less awesome.  

Not that I voted for Kurt.

DeNiro's Cady was over the top.  From his overly tattooed looks on up.  He was obvious bad guy.

Mitchum's was just right.  Subtly menacing but able to blend in with the crowd.

John Carpenter originally wanted Snake's surname to be "Cheesken" but Kurt gave him that exact look in the pic above.

Kurt then slowly whispered, "The name's Plisken."

John replied, "Oh man yeah! That's good stuff Kurt!"

Still looking like in the pic above, he whispered again but more gruffly, "It's Plisken."

And the rest is cheesestory.

Well, neither, really.

But of the two, if I should (meet one or the other in a dark alley), I'd immediately be scared of DeNiro's Cady.

It would take a minute to realize I should be terrified of Mitchum's Cady.

Subtle is the name, Mitchum is the game.

I like Eastwood but it's funny that he's the leading vote getter for his 'acting' but Woody Allen is no where to be found.
