I'll say Jeremy Renner because he did a memorable role as Hawkeye, to be fair.

As for Mark Wahlberg. I don't hate him, but he's just another action star to me.

@sideburnguru Mark gets no respect for his role in The Departed or The Fighter? What is this world?

It's because I mentioned The Departed right?

I just didn't really care for The Departed as much as everyone else. I mean, it was good. But I honestly don't like Matt Damon at all, nor am I a massive fan of Wahlberg. I do really like Jack Nicholson though, like ALOT.

The Fighter was good, but again.. I don't really like the actors in it. Didn't do much for me. Great movie, but I still say if I had to go off my personal opinion and who I remember more, I'm gonna go with Renner.

Jeremy Renner. Mark Wahlberg is a racist.

At 15, Mark Wahlberg harassed a group of African American school children on a field trip by throwing rocks (causing injuries) and shouting racial epithets. When he was 16, Wahlberg approached a middle-aged Vietnamese man on the street and, using a large wooden stick, knocked him unconscious (while calling him “Vietnam f#####g s##t he also attacked another Vietnamese man, leaving him permanently blind in one eye, and attacked a security guard (again using racist language).

Commenting in 2006 on his past crimes, Wahlberg has stated: “I did a lot of things that I regretted and I have certainly paid for my mistakes.” He said the right thing to do would be to try to find the blinded man and make amends, and admitted he has not done so, but added that he was no longer burdened by guilt.

@vortex13: I certainly hope he has deeply regretted for his past. Nevertheless, since we've been talking about acting performance etc, I prefer Wahlberg. Needless to say, if he continues having all this hatred in his heart, it's a pity, and I say, shame to him, and nothing more.

@hbktimhbk: Maybe to you.

Maybe to me he was a kid and now he's older? I'm pretty sure that's more factual than opinion. He's renounced what he did years ago, said he got his life back on track, show me where he's still this twisted person and maybe I'll believe you.

Why do people always make fun of that scene? It wasn't that bad, or even stupid. Studies have shown that plants do respond to positive vibes, and Wahlberg was trying to give off positive vibes. Not to mention he was desperate. Yes, I liked Wahlberg in The Happening and I found that movie to be EXTREMELY underrated.

A friend of mine talked to plants for her science fair project, at first it was dismissed as BS, but I think she got away with it and figured out a decent enough correlation to pass judging...personal anecdote that is irrelevant, but I felt the need to share it ^_^

Marky Mark takes things way too seriously, he's always frowning.

@spideyivydaredevilfan26: Hansel and Gretel is just a gore bath. The plot is pretty stupid. I've just seen it four times in a row because of Gemma Arterton as Gretel. She's smoking hot. By the way you missed out The Fighter and Pain and Gain for Mark's good films :)

That was a very long time ago and didn't Mark do time? He isn't a racist anymore.

It's who do you like more, not who's the better actor.

I never said "Who do you like more as a person" either. Just overall who's better at doing what they do.

Mark Wahlberg for me. Liked him in Shooter and Ted.

Renner's good and all, but a little dry I find. I only really enjoyed him in Hurt Locker.

Wahlberg. Renner to me seems pretty one dimensional. I've seen Wahlberg cover a few planes of acting and have never really been disappointed.

Well, I wouldn't say that, but it's still a great movie. Great tribute to the 50's B-Movies with a great environmental message, a smart script and just a great twist. Only downside was Zooey Deschanel (Who SUCKED) B+

Oh yeah, I did miss The Fighter. *facepalm* Yeah, that was a great movie, should have put it there. Haven't seen Pain and Gain, but I love Marky Mark so I'll give it a shot. As far as Hansel and Gretel, I just wanted to see it because it has a great cast and looks like the most insanely fun movie since Freddy v.s Jason (Which actually had great acting, pretty likeable and developed characters and a decent albeit not great plot for a slasher)
