What's Your Favorite John Cusack Movie?

What's Your Favorite John Cusack Movie?

After seeing the trailer for 1408, a new horror film starring John Cusack, I have to admit that the man's getting older, and it's starting to show. And while I found the trailer to be effectively creepy, I must say I prefer my John Cusack when he's being funny.

Whether he's holding a boom box in front of a girl's house or making "Top 5" lists for everything in his life, John Cusack with his sad-puppy face just gets me every time. For better or worse, he's had a pretty extensive career so far, but just so this list doesn't get too long, I've narrowed down the choices to some of his better-known roles.

It's hard to pick just one, isn't it?

Tough choice, because I LOVE LOVE LOVE John Cusack. But "Say Anything" is a classic. :)

I just saw Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil last night. It was so awful I had to stand up and walk around to keep from falling asleep. Other than the very few scenes with Jude Law, it was a major yawn.

Grosse Point Blank... it was perfect. Love the music... loved Minnie... loved the whole hired killer having a meltdown at his high school reunion. Heck I even loved Piven!

Aaaa! I can't pick just one. As a self-proclaimed big fan, folks often ask me to pick my fave John Cusack movie and I always ask for clarification. For example, I think his film w/ his best acting & w/ the most artistic merit is The Grifters, his most romantic film is Say Anything, his sexy-manliest film is The Jack Bull, his most-identifiable-with-my-life-and-therefore-perhaps-what-most-would- call-MY-favorite film is High Fidelity, etc. Can you tell that I'm a HUGE dork? :-)

I absolutely loved him in a film called "Max" co-starring Noah Taylor and Leelee Sobieski. It's about a post WW1 modern art dealer (JC) who takes a then unknown Adolf Hitler under his wing as an aspiring artist (based on true Hitler accounts but a fictionalized portrait). A gripping "what if" hypothesis about that time in history. Highly recommended for any Cusack fan. Though, he does it for me in any role.

I had to pick between Malkovich, which I think is beyond awesome, Grosse Pointe Blank, which I totally love, and High Fidelity. I went with High Fidelity, but it's a toss up.

High Fidelity. And I obviously have to watch Say Anything.

Being John Malkovich is by far his finest work, but Grosse Pointe Blank is a close second.

Serendipity. Say Anything is very close behind though.

It's so hard to choose between him in Say Anything and High Fidelity. Two of my all time favorite movies.
