Alright, my friends and I are big movie fans and my friends have been arguing who is better. I mean I think everyone knows these are two of the best actors ever who began acting literally at the same time and my friends are spilt- 3 of my friends say Pacino, while 3 say De niro. I personally couldn't say which cause they are two of the best. Brando is another of my favorite, but which one do you perfer- Michael Corlene and Tony Montana or Travis Bickle and Jake LaMotta?
Just b/c he is casts in a different role, that doesn't mean that I buy him in these roles. Even in the roles that Pacino plays, they may be similar, but I think that he is able to expand the character more than Deniro does. I like both of them but I guess it is a personal preferance, Pacino just brings so much power to his characters, plus Scarface is my favorite movie
I say Deniro. If you looks at "Travis" at the end of Taxi Driver when he snaps and gets the mohawk and all, it's such a sharp contrast to the character he played in say "Meet the Parents' I believe since he can do such a broad range of roles he is the better actor.
De Niro no doubt. Pacino was awesome in the godfathers, and good in scarface. But De Niro is still better. But Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction is still the best ;p
