Can't stand the fella . .
We're told by the media how wonderful this man is, so we're supposed to like him, or else.
F-Off . .
He's made so many sh*t movies . .
Dreadful actor & so overrated. .

Cantona07 13-07-2013 23:11

Awesome actor

Love him.

Like what?

xxtimbo 13-07-2013 23:30

He served in the military, ( prob in the 50s )
must have put him in good stead for Zulu (1964)

I once shared a house with a bloke who said he'd been in London one day, and seen Michael Caine walking his way. He told me that he took that opportunity to say, 'Hello Mr Caine!'

I waited for more, but seeing he was not planning to volunteer it, I asked him what the upshot of the encounter and greeting had been.

'He said "Hello' back,' answered my friend.

He's quite the raconteur, this former housemate of mine. Highly on demand on the after-dinner circuit.

Well ive just read this and i was impressed.

Back in the day I would have paid 14.99 for a choice or orange juice or prawn cocktail followed by steak diane for someone with even more flair than yourself to deliver it with the aid of a microphone and a couple of gin and tonics.

Now you're a big man but you're out of shape and with me it's a full-time job.

The Swarm
Escape To Victory (though thats almost in the So bad its good category)

and I vaguely remember one about a pirate (which also had David Warner in it?)

And I'm sure I read somewhere that he's admitted doing some rubbish films just for the money (and because he was a workaholic) and he doesn't regret them in the slightest.

But he's also done some of my all time favourite films

Zulu
The Italian Job
The Man Who Would Be King
The Ipcress FIles

and
Alfie
Sleuth
The Eagle Has Landed
Harry Brown

The Swarm is a classic B movie

He has admitted to that, I'm sure it was in one of his autobiogs.
Not a lot of people know that he worked in rep. theatre before hitting films. He has the old school ethic of "grab any money paying job that comes your way because you never know where or when the next pay cheque is coming from" which is shared by Samuel L Jackson amongst others, who has also worked on some stinkers.

As for Micklewhite's stinkers, how about Jaws: The Revenge? And I'm sure he was in a 70's film about piranha's but I could be wrong....

Yes he did, but we're talking back in the 50's and 60's...

xxtimbo 14-07-2013 06:19

From mem he got picked up by some
top Hollywood producers who planned a series of Bond type movies but more low key... (Harry Palmer )
and Micheal found himself on a contract paying him some obscene figure like.... 10,000 per week !
(how much were you on back in the mid 60s ?)
The first thing he did was to go out and buy himself one of those huge American fridges.

I quite like Michael Caine but often his acting is very wooden, sometimes delivering his lines as though he's reading them.

He tends to talk...in a ...flat monotnous...voice...with pauses...and THEN STARTS BLOODY SHOUTING.

I think he served in the Korean War as part of his National Service

scone 14-07-2013 10:52

He did a very poor American accent in one of the Jaws movies if I remember rightly, but he is a great actor regardless :D

I could swear he has either portrayed a gay man in a film or dressed as a woman, one or the other

Sargeant80 14-07-2013 14:51

To be fair he's quite open about taking some roles purely for the money.

I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific. [Jaws: The Revenge]
