  • Yet elsewhere we saw glimpses of her potential in films like a Bigger Splash and Black Mass.

  • He's never gonna be a little boy again, ever.

  • No, he's brain dead.

  • He's on life support.

  • He can't move and I don't want him like that.

  • Is it the head?

  • Thats fine sex.

  • Mhm, The heart hands, Yeah, e wannabe this company's hands.

  • There's not a damn thing wrong with the kid.

  • Don't let anybody else tell you any different.

  • You remember saying that.

  • We're sorry we call the cops.

  • Okay?

  • Are you talking to me?

  • And sure, this phase in his career gave us duds like Dirty Grandpa and Baywatch.

  • But he remains a watch, a plea, energetic presence.

  • Granted, the role was poorly written, but her lack of verve and outward interest didn't make her look too great, either.

  • Couple that with a pretty underwhelming snow white and the Huntsman and Stuart didn't need much more incentive to step away from Hollywood's I'm valuable.

  • That's why you're here, isn't it?

  • Proving she's a better fit for the indie scene.

  • She gave a trio of nuanced performances in 2014 with Camp X ray clouds of Sils, Maria and still Alice.

  • In this world, there's a kind of painful progress, longing for what we've left behind and dreaming ahead, not stopping there.

  • In short, Case Do is back if you know where to find her.

  • So we made this oath.

  • Whoever died first was on the other sign, Number three.

  • Adam Sandler.

  • Even during his heyday in the mid to late nineties, Adam Sandler couldn't be counted on for much more than his usual brand of wacky and unrestrained performances.

  • Okay, mercy, you went, I give game over Then an interesting thing happened in 2002, when he shocked audiences with just how grounded he could be as a dramatic actor in Paul Thomas Anderson's punch Drunk Love.
