Sam Rockwell is one of those faces that pop up all the time in films but people cannot quite put their fingers who they are and they're from. Not this gal, Rockwell has been, well, rocking my world for a long time now because the actor comes into any movie and makes it a million times better. The North American actor has dabbled in comedies, thrillers and dramas, adding another level of personality to proceedings and a lot of the time, stealing the show. Whilst the I’m With Geek crew may be polarised on how great Rockwell is, for the release of Poltergeist, we look at the essential movies!
Honourable Mention: The Green Mile because everyone needs to see that film and his manic performance as well as the underrated Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
This movie has recently been included on the list of cult classics that are heading to the small screen. It’s a little bit irritating but it does give everyone an opportunity to go back to the movie that was so flipping great. Parodying sci-fi series such as Star Trek, Galaxy Quest revolves around the cast of a huge television series who are mistakenly believed to be real by an alien race who ropes them in to defeat an evil villain. Rockwell stars as Guy Fleegman, a red-shirt type of character who becomes obsessed with the show so hilariously balances the fandom aspect and the good-heartedness as someone so afraid of dying owing to his role as a disposable character.
