When two A-list actors share the screen a few things can happen: it can be magical … or anticlimactic. Here’s two cases where it seems magical. But which one is more magical? You decide.
The first scene is from the Michael Mann movie Heat (1995) with Pacino and DeNiro. I remember seeing this scene for the first time and loving it. A lot. So much that I got the two-tape VHS (!) and later the DVD.
The second scene is from The Departed (2006) with DiCaprio and Damon. Although I’m not saying that these two actors have the same chops as the other two, the scene where Damon calls DiCaprio was incredibly tense and incredibly well-played. (Although the You Tube video doesn’t include the phone discussion that follows, this part definitely captures the tension.)
So which is better? Vote now.
And, now it’s your turn:
- What scenes would you put up against the winner?
- What scenes involving A-list actors didn’t work?
