Best films by actors

From faramir_boromir this meme has just wasted most of my morning. A list of actors: say which of their films you like best. I have taken it as the film I like best, not the performance which I like best. I like meme's like this because they give me an excuse to reminisce about fims and actors I like.

Tom Hanks - Saving Private Ryan (Apollo 13 close 2nd)
Jim Carrey - Truman Show
Tobey Maguire - Pleasantville
Mel Gibson - Hamlet
Ben Affleck - Shakespeare in Love (don’t like this actor)
Nicole Kidman - Dead Calm (would probably be Dogville if I’d seen it)
Liv Tyler - Fellowship of the Ring
Harrison Ford - Blade Runner
Natalie Portman - Leon
Ewan McGregor - Trainspotting
Edward Norton - Fight Club
Angelina Jolie - Bone Collector (Sky Captain will almost certainly top that by miles)
John Cusack - Being John Malkovitch
Renee Zellweger - Cold Mountain
Johnny Depp - Ed Wood
Sean Penn - 21 grams (or the Thin Red Line?)
Will Smith - Men in Black
Meg Ryan - Restoration
Catherine Zeta-Jones - Chicago
Sandra Bullock - Speed
Gwyneth Paltrow - Se7en (there are a lot of good ones in her repertoire aren’t there?)
Brad Pitt - 12 Monkeys
Keanu Reeves - Point Break
Cameron Diaz - Being John Malkovich
Christina Ricci - The Ice Storm
Drew Barrymore - Donnie Darko
Kate Hudson - Have never seen
Adam Sandler - The Wedding Singer I guess (I’ve only seen this and ‘50 first dates’)
Robin Williams - Insomnia? Mrs Doubtfire? Or Branagh’s Hamlet?
Arnold Schwarzenegger - Terminator
Bruce Willis - Pulp Fiction
Eddie Murphy - Shrek
Morgan Freeman - Unforgiven
Viggo Mortensen - Fellowship of the Ring
Sigourney Weaver - Alien
George Clooney - Three Kings (Out of Sight also v. good)
Julia Stiles - Branagh’s Hamlet
Jodie Foster - Silence of the Lambs
Sean Connery - oooh lots of Yummy ones. The Longest Day. Or perhaps the Anderson Tapes
Christian Slater - Heathers
Julianne Moore - The Big Lebowski
Ethan Hawke - Gattaca
Sean Bean - Fellowship of the Ring
