Any of his baseball trilogy films would vie for the best film staring KC in my humble opinion.

I'm voting for Sizzle Beach USA. Saw this classic on skinemax...boy was I surprised to see Costner pop up...

Otherwise I'd vote for...The Untouchables or Dances with Wolves. It's been so long since I've seen Dances it's hard to judge it properly.

I think Costner's legacy will always be "Dances With Wolves." That's what I voted for.

I thought Wyatt Earp was pretty cool, much better than most of his other movies.

I voted for "Dances with Wolves" but a close second has to be "A perfect world".

I really enjoyed Wyatt Earp and Field of Dreams but Dances with Wolves is his best.

The 4 hour version is amazing.

Dances With Wolves is Kevin Costner's masterpiece but JFK, demented as its view of history is, is Oliver Stone's masterpiece and it's better.

I think Field of Dreams and Tin Cup are the worst on the list.

I think his best movie was Dances With Wolves, but his best performance (before he started getting . . . well . . . all "Costner-y") was in Silverado.

Also a little sad to see that No Way Out wasn't one of the official poll options.

Where's 'The Big Chill'???

Among the choices listed, I'll guess I'll vote for DWW.
