Gibson is completely awesome. He clearly owns Travolta in this contest.

Also, Jackelope, I'm confused by something. If you're awarding Mel and Jon 1/10 for their roles in Hairspray and The Singing Detective based on Playground male bravado then movies like The Taking of Pelham 123 and From Paris With Love should receive 10's because of their senseless, over-the-top violence. Plot-wise, bot of these movies sucked. The violence in them was top-notch, however.



Negative. 10's are only handed out to the most badass of action films. I'm of course referring to movies like Aliens (the 2nd one), Predator, Terminator 2, etc. If that were the case I think we all on the playground would come to the conclusion that Arnold Schwarzenegger is the greatest actor of all time. While we all know it's not true we have all probably watched his movies with a smile on our face more times than any other actor.



Any alien movie does not deserve higher than 7or 8 on 10 IMO, theyre entertaining just not 10 worthy, at all



Wow! Never heard anyone say that about Aliens. I understand not liking 3 and beyond. But 1 and 2 were both amazing. Obviously with 2 being a bit more over the top blood, guts, acid and violence. (therefore more awesome)

EDIT: And cowcatcher- see my original post for my comment on wild hogs I feel as though that movie alone should disqualify Travolta from any further competitions unless they're centered around his ... hmm.... shall we say.... preference for pink tutus and all things shiny.

I didn't really care for Aliens as much as others did.

I can't stand Johnny T... he annoys me more than any other famous person.... Mel Gibson would wipe the floor with him....

Travolta, with the exception of Pulp Fiction, does nothing for me.

Gibson wins this one by a landslide.
