Keanu Reeves - The Matrix. Yes it's probably due to how much I like the movie itself, but this is my favorite role by him despite other roles like Constantine etc. that I enjoyed.

Kate Beckinsale & John Cusack - Serendipity. OK, so I enjoy some chick flicks , and this is my favorite of that type.

Arnold Schwarzenegger - Terminator 2:Judgement Day. I did like PRedator, Eraser, and Total Recall too.

Kevin Costner - Field of Dreams. One of my top movies of all time. I know many don't like him, but I personally have enjoyed many other of his movies, like Waterworld, Bull Durham, Dragonfly, and others.

Tom Cruise - Edge of Tomorrow. I just love this movie. Again, another actor that seems to get bashed quite a bit, but I have enjoyed many of his movies like Jack Reacher, Oblivion, Top Gun, War of the Worlds, and many more.

Jack Nicholson - The Shining. He's done a lot, but "Here's Johnny"

Anne Hathaway - The Intern. And that was a toss-up between Interstellar.

Tom Hanks - Big. I really had to think about this as he had SO many roles after this. But Big was just a fun movie for me and I think he played the part perfectly. Just saw Sully recently and loved it. Also Cast Away, Sleepless in Seattle, and so many others.

Julia Roberts - Erin Brockovich. Excellent movie IMO. Many others like Flatliners, Mystic Pizza, and more.

Denzel Washington - Crimson Tide. I could have picked several others like Virtuosity, Remember the Titans, The Magnificent 7, etc.

Leonardo DiCaprio - Inception. So difficult for me to pick a favorite, so the movie itself might be the reason as much as the acting. Titanic, SHutter ISland, The Aviator, The Wolf of Wall STreet, The Revenant - lots of great movies.

OK, that's just a few for now.
