Topic: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

I know I couldn't include all his movies and there are some good ones like Flatliners and JFK I left out, just name what movies you liked him in if it isn't on the poll, I myself think Kevin Bacon is a great actor and is a bit underrated.

My favorite movie is sleepers, but my favorite Bacon performance was from "Stir of Echoes"

I had to go with Footloose.  That's what made me love him.

I did see Footloose in the theater but kinda like the kill scene in Friday the 1333th too Betsy really gave it to him.

Footloose was a great flick back then too, Sleepers was awesome as well it had a great cast and Bacon played a mean ass security guard.

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

I really liked The River Wild, Bacon had a chance to let loose on the acting, he was so believeably Evil. Streep and Bacon acting off one another was tense!!!

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

I picked Stir of Echoes because thats my all time favorite movie with Kevin Bacon, then Mystic Rivers, Sleepers, Footlose..

This is a hard one for me, like him so much and can't pick.  All the roles are so different but my favorites are Stir of Echoes, Tremors and Sleepers.  He's very versatile.

Those tubes socks in Friday 13th.....hee hee hee

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

See for me this is a tough one b/c it's a tossup between Tremors, Stir of Echoes, Sleepers, and The River Wild. Now i did see The Woodsman and i gotta tell you that movie is messed up. But between the 4 i listed i'm going to really think about it.

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

While I enjoyed Stir of Echoes, I had to go with a null vote here as my favorite films with Bacon in them are Wild Things and Animal House

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

without question tremors, a great film.

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

So i finally chose and decided which one is my favorite and it's Tremors but with a very close favorite.

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

Tremors, its great movie smile

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

Tremors....such a badass filn.

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

Tremors is a great flick, but I was just wondering are you guys choosing that movie because of the movie itself? I was leaning towards sleepers as the overall favorite movie of mine on the list but I liked Kevin's performance in Stir of Echoes the best and went with that.

I was just wondering if you had to pick a movie only on his acting ability and overall performance would it be the same.

Thats a fantastic film it was 3rd on my list.

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

I thought that The River Wild was his best out of the pick.
I think he needs to stop "singing" and get back into acting its what he does best.

Re: whats your favorite Bacon performance and movie

I'm not a big fan of Kevin Bacon, so I just went for my favorite film on the list.  That would be "Friday the 13th".
