And now the return of the 'Ask Nathaniel/Q&A' series whereinyou asked me questionsand I pick two handfuls to answer.

Disposable project on the line for Emily.Yes,another one.DAVID: Which actresses filmographies are you most disappointed in?I'm thinking in terms of actresses you admire and think are incredibly talented,but,for whatever reason,end up working in subpar films.

NATHANIEL: I think the popular answer here is Rachel McAdams but aside fromMean GirlsI've never cared too much.The answer that came immediately to mind was Emily Blunt.It's not that she's making terrible films per se,it's just that given how Oscar worthy she was in that plum comic part inDevil Wears Pradaseven long years ago,and then how sexy she was in that blink and you'll miss her bit inCharlie Wilson's Warsoon thereafter,I expected her career to explode in the way,say,Carey Mulligan's did postAn Educationor at least for her to be more direct competition for Anne Hathaway. I wonder why Blunt isn't either in more demand or more interested in challenging herself.Maybe it's just bad luck.She seems to be working exclusively in indies that don't crossover,mainstream films that are quickly forgotten or headlining gigs which don't really work in some crucial way (Young Victoria,Adjustment Bureau).I'd love to see her really challenged either by a role or by an auteur.WillInto the Woodsbring a happily ever after to that heat-losing career?

The second choice is Evan Rachel Wood who seemed to chuck what looked like incredible range and promise to the side for a long procession of Very Bad Girls.This was,in no small part thanks to her inarguable electricity inThirteen(2003) but when you play variations on one theme too often you either become a superstar or people lose interest.I thought she was good in Ides of March (2011) but it isn't what she needed.What she needs is a total about face role.

JOHN T: The last foreign language film to clear $20 million wasPan's Labyrinth,almost seven years ago.What do you think it would take for a foreign language film to catch on in that way again?

Amy Adams,Oscar Tragedies,and a Beefcake Tripleafter the jump...
