Pretty much every response to Jonathan Teplitzsky‘s Churchill, which I haven’t seen, has called it minor but with a first-rate lead performance by Brian Cox. This obviously affords an opportunity to ask for lists of a few notoriously mediocre films that nonetheless boasted great performances. Jon Voight‘s deliciously over-the-top performance in Anaconda (’97) comes to mind. Remember — the movie has to be shit or close to it for the performance in question to qualify.
