    Two of my favourite actors, and two of the best actors ever.

    Who had the better body of work?

    Jack and it’s not even close. Jack can’t hear you his academy awards are plugging his ears and covering one of his eyes.

    I prefer De Niro's movies.

    But Jack overall wins this.

    Pacino > Jack tho.

    I like de Niro's films better for the most part, but I think Nicholson is the better actor by a wide margin.

    Tough choice, but I think De Niro takes this one. He's done better movies and has better performances imo.

    DeNiro has been in the more legendary movies.

    Both are great actors and I like both, but would have to go with De Niro overall.

    DeNiro's body of work > and its not even close.

    Jack has 2 God Tier movies: Chinatown and Cuckoo's Nest and a lot of very good movies and very good performances.

    they're both amazing, but Bob has been more prolific and more diverse (over the span of their careers, now he's kind of a hack).

    Both legends but DeNiro's career is a clear step ahead. I'd rather hang out with Jack though.

    Rather kick it with Jack, but I've seen more of De Niro's bigger movies so I'd probably go with him.

    IMO Chinatown is overrated. So is the Deer Hunter.

    Not bad films, just not on the level of Cuckoo's Nest or Raging Bull.

    I'll roll with Bobby D because he was in two of my greatest movies of all time Goodfellas and Casino

    But man, Jack is in a league of his own when it comes to acting.

    They're both easily in the Top 10 of GOAT actors
