Ellen in the Top 20 Actresses Under 30 List

I see your point about range. As far as risk taking goes I'm impressed that Ellen does tiny budgeted and intense movies like "The Tracey Fragments", "An American Crime" or "Super" etc which may not advance her career in terms of her popularity with the general public. I mean how many of the women o...

Ellen in the Top 20 Actresses Under 30 List

Oops! You're right, Nathaniel really doesn't talk much about his criteria aside from only including actresses working in English. Nontheless, I still think his list is better than the one at FilmLove, which includes Meagan Fox, who has yet to show that she has any acting chops. As far as I know, all...

Ellen in the Top 20 Actresses Under 30 List

I came across this article at FilmLove.com today, and they have an interesting article on who they believe are Top 20 Actresses Under 30. Ellen is number 8, down from her previous number 6 position in 2009. This list also included Ellen's good friend, Alia Shawkat, who debuts for the first time at n...

Juno - Revisited

Juno's family was definitely blue collar. They were not starving....but they definitely were not making big bucks....even though they owned their own businesses. Note that they had just the Previa as the family car...and one with a few years on it. Mac's work van was definitely 10+ years old. Also,...

Juno - Revisited

Juno was really more like most teens of my era (the 80's) and most teens today. If you look at most teen movies....they usually deal with some kid or kids from upper-middle class backgrounds....few deal with working class backgrounds. I mean, come on, most kids were not like Ferris Bueller (the mos...

Your wish list of Actors that Ellen would work with

Interesting commentary over at the Deadline link, Jim. I can actually see Daniel Craig get the role - actually, I hope he does over Pitt, who, though a much bigger box office draw, is too much of a pretty boy in looks to play the world weary investigative reporter which is the male lead. BTW, do we ...

Well I hate to admit but I was a teenager in the 60's, growing up in the UK, and was influenced by the Beatles. They had that Liverpudlian way of speaking plus influenced fashion and of course revolutionized the music biz. New "scenes" are a natural fit for safe teenage rebellion. Maybe Diablo Cody...

Well, I guess some people are distracted by the teenage dialogue - which they find too stylized - and find it takes them out of the movie. However, it wouldn't be the first movie in which teenage chatter becomes a pop culture phenomenon. Back in the 80s, Heathers was all the rage and kids were quoti...

Thanks for posting. To see more of Ellen and her goofing around with her Inception co-stars, you can check out this youtube video. However, for those that want to remain spoiler free, don't click on the link! There are some scenes that are definitely spoilery... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mevYf...

Your wish list of Actors that Ellen would work with

Great list - many use similar acting techniques to Ellen, I believe. Would have like to have seen Ellen play Jane Eyre to Daniel Craig's Rochester. Just something in the grittiness of Craig's performances that might have complemented her own rawness/openess. There's some talk going on right now tha...

New Movie: Ellen Attached to the Laurel Hester Story

I like the suggestion of Hilary Swank. If she's channeling a bit of the Boys Don't Cry vibe, it'd be an intersting mix.

It's only been 3 years since Juno hit the big screen and won over audiences just about everywhere. Though not a lot of time has passed, Cinematical, a movie blog, has decided to revisit and review the movie again.

Just an fyi that there's another youtube video showing some behind the scenes footage of the filming of X-Men 3. Ellen's quite playful and mischievious in it, and at one point tries to undo Shawn Ashmore's belt while filming. There's also a hilarious scene in which Brett Ratner dresses up as Wolveri...

SIR Patrick Stewart....Now Knighted (From BBC)

Right now Fox is concentrating on the X-Men prequels. Given that they are focusing on Xavier and the early years of the first batch of X-Men, it stands to reason that Kitty and the other younger X-Men don't yet exist in the time that these stories take place. Should Fox ever decide to come back to t...

The plot did leave some holes: Maggie was not raped....Actually, John was the one raped. We do not know for sure...but it sure sounded like Maggie and John's mom had some deal in the works to have John father a child. Note that the mom sent Maggie money for Jake until he died Maggie probably left P...

I'll be honest, it wasn't the easiest film to watch or the easiest film to understand. However, I can see why Ellen wanted to be a part of it based on the impression she had after reading the script. It's a very complex story and not like the other psycho thrillers/split personality movies we have ...

It's interesting that Ellen's poster is so very different than the rest of the other posters featuring the other cast members. While all the others feature the actors awake and staying either to the right or left, or even directly out at you, the one that depicts Ellen shows her seemingly asleep, as...

Just wondering, but what is your wishlist for actors, directors, or producers that you would like to see Ellen work with in future projects? Inception has an amazing cast and is backed by Chris Nolan, so a lot of actors that I like have already worked with her (really looking forward to this movie, ...
