Don't worry, there is no downside room on my opinion of either, as people or political figures. Both have a certain amount of talent, I believe. I loved Sean Penn in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. He virtually gained perpetual ownership over the role of a dumb blonde California surfer dude. he was that good.
I think there was a time where I might have agreed with you on that totally, I still see that they do have some talent. But I would pose that Sean Penn was just that good at surfer dude because he was surfer dude. He did steal the show. Madonna, I just found annoying, could barely suffer through the only movie I saw of hers, Desparately seeking Susan. Again, I would pose that she was that character. For instance, Tim Robbins, while a real die hard leftie, was quite chilling in some of his roles, equally mesmerizing in Antitrust as he was in Shawshank and Truth about Charlie. I don't care for his politics, but I do recognize his talent. Ridgemont High was just on the other day, Sean Penn was indeed really good in that.
I'll confess I never saw a Madonna movie. Her talents that I know are as a pop star and self-promoter. Further, I admit that Ridgemont High was the only Sahwn Penn movie I've seen. Obviously, I'm not much of a movie person! Primarily becuase they are mostly so lousy, it seems to me.
So I see you may be absolutely correct on Penn's Ridgemont High performance. I've just been assuming all these years he was talented, even though I never wanted to see the other movies he made because they looked to me like basically dumb ideas in the first place.
She excels at self promotion. I am a movie fan, although at times there are movie droughts! I liked Madonna's bit part and the song in the Austin Powers movie.
I've just been assuming all these years he was talented, even though I never wanted to see the other movies he made because they looked to me like basically dumb ideas in the first place.
Lol. Some of them were dumb! Well, don't forget, I'm a little biased about Mr. Penn. He might indeed be talented. I haven't seen any recent work. I understand he has a new movie coming out. The character is so radically different than surfer dude that I would be curious to see how he handles it.
