Our Favorite Faces Of Anthony Hopkins
This week, Earth gets invaded by Michael Bay's fifth Transformers film, a 3D extravaganza clocking in on a relatively succinct 148 minutes. Seriously, I thought Michael would go for the full three hours this time!
Regardless of how much sarcasm I level at it I'll probably still go see it anyway, as I'm a sucker for grand special effects and true 3D, and Transformers: The Last Knight has both in spades.

It also has a cast which includes Sir Anthony Hopkins, an actor who I tended to dislike until I suddenly started to love seeing him. I probably had previously seen him in too often in unlikable roles, and with his distinctive features I had him typecast as "oh, THAT guy" for decades. That of course changed when I saw him have fun with a role, and discovered just how versatile he had been.

So this week, let's focus on Sir Anthony Hopkins. What is your favorite performance by him? Was it a romantic film, a serious thriller, a horror comedy? Was he funny, scary or just plain awesome? Chime in, in the comments below!

Remains of the Day. Hands down, no contest.

Probably Westworld, although i've liked others a lot too. Bram Stoker's Dracula springs to mind, he hammed it up hilariously but was still great.

Every now and then The Lion in Winter pops up on tv, and it's always a jolt seeing a green, unknown Hopkins shouting along with that powerhouse cast. He did ok for himself!

In John Woo's generally disappointing MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2, I love it when Anthony Hopkins says: "Mr. Hunt, this isn't mission difficult, it's mission impossible; difficult should be a walk in the park for you."

I love his totally sexist comment when Tom Cruise says something like "You're asking me to make her lie, steal and pretend to be someone else, what makes you think she's qualified?" and Hopkins says "She's a woman, isn't she?". For some reason i picture him practicing his Zorro whip routine during that scene... i HAVE to be imagining that, hahahaha. Even Hopkins wouldn't be so bold as to be practicing for his next role while shooting his current one, onscreen.

I've never seen it but i've been thinking of watching it recently. I'll check it out on that recommendation, thank you.
