Semi-Finals for your Favorite Movie Stars Ever

Match-ups and age knocked-out some of the best. I would have predicted Hanks and Streep would make it this far.

Actors:

1)Tom Hanks vs. 5)Al Pacino - Pacino is a great actor. His best film was easily Dogday Afternoon. He's a bit one dimensional compared to Hanks.

2)Harrison Ford vs. 6)Robert DeNiro - DeNiro is much like Pacino. Great acting in great movies, but usually similar characters. Ford's movies don't have the "greatness" but are very fun to watch.

 

Actresses:

1)Jodie Foster vs. 5)Katherine Hepburn - This is an easy vote, now. Taylor should have been here. Taylor vs. Streep would have been a good final. Audrey Hepburn was better than Katherine.

10)Julie Andrews vs. 14)Meryl Streep - Easy vote again - Streep deserves to be in the final.
