I like Kevin Costner. I've liked him since I first saw him in Fandango. Other KC films I like include: Silverado, The Untouchables, Bull Durham, Revenge, Dances With Wolves, JFK, Wyatt Earp, Waterworld, The Postman, A Perfect World, and Open Range.
I think he is a pretty damn good director and would like to see him helm more films. I hold Dances With Wolves to be one of the best westerns ever.
He is not Laurence Olivier, nor is he Stanley Kubrick, but the man has his own talents and I think he is a hell of a lot better than many other "more popular" celebrities.
Have you ever held a lion in your arms? I have. He smelled funky.
