So, whaddya think of him? I watched a double bill of his the other night, the rather weak Pursuit Of Happyness and the the much better Ali, what struck me most about both films is just how bloody good I think Will Smith is.
I remember back in the day, once in a while The Fresh Prince would do a "serious" and Smith would act everyone of screen, one scene in particular always stays in my head; His Dad comes to see him, but then buggers off, leaving Will when he said he would take him with him. Smiths reaction is perfect, and totally realistic. Its a wonderful scene, one that fortold his ability behind all the jokes and Summer Blockbuster movies. I think he is a top notch actor, perhaps of limited range, and needs to be pushed, I would love him to do something that we can all sit up of a take note of again, like he did in Ali, he may not look like "The Greatest" but he had everything else right, fabulous performance....or am I wrong? What do you guys 'n' gals think?
Hey, careful, man, there's a beverage here!
