I think he's excellent in everything, but had to go with American History X. Outstanding!

I call foul

This is too tough :cry:

I loved American History X, Fight Club, and Score, The

I had to go with Primal Fear for this I think showcased his talent much better and served as an awesome introduction.

Great actor, great performances...my vote's going for American History X (which is also, IMO, his best movie yet)

(Something tells me American History X is going to win :roll: :wink:)

I went with Primal Fear, just edging out Fight Club (haven't seen AHX)
Just a stunning breakthrough performance - and the only time I've ever been to the cinema a second time just to watch another person's reaction to the finale

I went with FC but damn it was hard. He was definitely awesome in AHX. :bang:

Is it just me, or did anyone else like The Score? BTW, I think Norton's a great actor and has potential to become one of Hollywood's newest heavyweights down the line....along with the crop of many talented actors today* :roll:
*And before anyone lists off a long list of examples of good actors in the 21st century, I do know that there are talented actors nowadays. I just like sarcasm...and the rolly-eye smiley...

I liked THE SCORE a whole bunch... even thought Marlon "Forgetful Whale" Brando was perfect for his part. But it's not better then FIGHT CLUB... which I voted... but then again I have not seen AHX yet.

I liked The Score a bit, but I thought Norton was terrible (if not embarrassing) in it. It was the first film which convinced me that he wasn't the greatest actor around.
La la la la la.
