    Since questioning the abilities of actors seems to be a sherdog trend lately. I personally think he's underrated.

    He and Josh Brolin are deceptively great.

    The guy managed to get major roles while having a hair-lip.

    Are you serious? Obviously, he must be.

    Yeah, he's great. Particularly in The Master.

    Philip Seymour Hoffman and Phoenix are both amazing in that movie.

    Yup. I put that performance amongst the God tier. That interview scene between them where Joaquin can't blink is incredible.

    So, in short, yes Joaquin is not only a very good actor, he's probably one of the best of his generation.

    I had high hopes for The Master, but thought it was just meh at best.

    Great actor, though.
