    Terminator Salvation = not so good. :p 

    I'm not sure if I can think of any actors that haven't had at least one stinker in their career. Even Clint Eastwood started out in "Return of the Creature From the Black Lagoon."

    How about Sean Astin? Did Goonies. Disappeared for a while. Showed up again to do Lord of the Rings. That's pretty good.

    Watch Reign of fire. Not a bad concept, with competent actors but horrid direction and writing.

    Bale was amazing in The Machinist. I do not agree with you on that, good sir.

    Honestly, for me, RDJ. I've loved all his movies I've seen.

    Only problem with this list is we're giving our opinions on who had flawless movies. For example I like Michael Keaton's work, especially his movie Johnny Dangerously, while others didn't like it so much.

    EDIT: Whoops, forgot about "How do You Know".

    All actors eventually make appearances in bad movies, esp early or late in their careers. It's ridiculous to even believe that they don't.

    Though I did chuckle at the notion that Shia has never made a bad movie. Not bringing up any of the three Transformers films you have Charlie's Angels, Indy 4, I Robot, Dumber and Dumberer, and those are just the ones that automatically come to mind.

    And Michael Keaton, geez. Anyone remember that masterpiece Herby Fully Loaded?

    Sean Astin had a terrible but funny role in 50 First Dates.

    Hardly any of Toshiro Mifune's movies have been bad ones.

    When was I-Robot considered a bad movie? Critics don't count, because they often find truly terrible movies to be great.

    What about Will Smith?
