Hard Choices: Angela Bassett or Halle Berry?
« on: September 25, 2006, 08:10:28 am »
Had to do it.....love Angela Bassett as an actress who is able to become different people (Tina Turner, Betty Shabazz) without dropping a sweat....think Halle is more of a celebrity than an actress but she did a great job in Spike Lee's "Jungle Fever."

Angela gets my vote!

How is this a hard choice? All due respect to Halle Berry, she's a few years away from even coming close to the level of Angela Bassett in terms of career.

As a lead actress, Angela Bassett is just superior. Period. Even Bassett's action movie work, sparse as it may be, is better. Compare Strange Days to, well...ANY of the action roles Halle Berry has done. And when it comes to dramatic acting, this isn't even a contest. Angela Bassett is more seasoned, has better taste in roles, and in general seems more dedicated to the craft of acting, in my opinion.

Angela! A-N-G-E-L-A!

I love Ms. Halle Berry.  But alas, the woman just can't act.  IMHO

So I'll roll with the flow and choose Ms. Angela Bassett.

Funny thing is, Halle is only convincing when playing crackheads. Her performace in Monster's Ball was award-worthy however...just from the AVN's and not Oscar.  ;D

Unfortunately, the roles available to Angela Bassett have decreased sharply. Last thing I saw her in was Supernova, I think.

Bassett did a great job in "Aquellah and the Spelling Bee" and "The Sunshine State" and was funny in "Mr. 3000" (some of her movies in the last 5 years).

Depends on the criteria...

Acting: Bassett with no hestitation whatsoever...Halle is NOT a good actor.

Looks: Halle hands down.

I would have no problem waking up to see either one of them on my side of the king size bed  :)

Agreed.  Both women are attractive in different ways...both have very nice bodies- the difference is the level of their craft and their savvy ability to choose roles that build upon their skill sets.
