That is an easy one, as there is only one. Out of Sight, gets better with each viewing. Now where is the blu?

Re: Favorite George Clooney Film?

I think From Dusk To Dawn is the only movie of his were he is actually scary. I loved him in that and in Three Kings.

It boiled down to Michael Clayton vs. Out of Sight. In the end, I went with Clayton. Both movies are phenomenal though.

I like him in just about everything he does. Personal favorite would be From Dusk Till Dawn.

From Dusk Till Dawn was my introduction to him, and it would still be my fave. Close second is Out of Sight.

Big fan of pretty much all his work, but I voted for O Brother.

I like a lot of his movies but looking over the list, I wouldn't put any in my top 50.

My top 5 Clooney movies:

Three Kings
Ocean's 11
From Dusk Til Dawn
Up in the Air
O Brother Where Art Thou

One thing I've noticed about Clooney...he always just plays slight variations of himself. I've yet to see him really stretch his acting talents.

That said, I think he's a good but not great actor, so he's perfectly suited playing the type of roles he takes.

Hard choice.

It was between 'Out of Sight', 'Michael Clayton', or 'Up in the Air' for me.

I went with 'Up in the Air'.

'The Men Who Stare at Goats' should have been on this list. Terrific movie.

From Dusk Till Dawn vs. Up in the Air. Two entirely different films...hm...

I'm a RR/QT fanatic so I guess I'll go with From Dusk Till Dawn.

I also love RR & QT....FDTD for me. Fucking love that movie. We need a US BD of this ASAP, RR. I'd love to get a commentary from Clooney on this one...doubt it'd happen but..it's such a fun movie....

Ocean's 11 for me, but that's more because of my enjoyment of the entire ensemble.

Out of what I've seen, probably Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

BTW, I don't think any of those movies really qualify as star vehicles. Maybe the Ocean's movies, but those aren't all about Clooney.
