Open Thread.Best Amy Adams Performances?

by Nathaniel R

WithSharp Objectsdebuting tonight on HBO (Yes,we'll cover it here),let's talk Amy Adams.Why should film twitter have all the listing fun?Talk Film Societyasked people to list their 3 favorite performances were and I was stunned how quickly I came tomy definitive answer.

  • Junebug (2005)
  • The Fighter (2010)
  • Enchanted (2007)

You've got her full range displayed;endearing dramedic instincts,stealth pathos with deep soul beneath the exteriors of women who seem ordinary at first glance,her star charisma and comic invention are all over her best work.

And to make the question a bit more interesting.Is there a performance of hers other people love that you just don't?My vote there is forThe Master().I think she's terribly miscast and I couldn't ever figure out the draw of what she was doing or how people figured it was earned within the film -- especially for an actual Oscar nomination.Those are hard to come by ["for other people"- self-editing note]  But to each their own in opinion-land,right?

Beauty vs Beast: Listen to the Lady in the Radiator

Jason fromMNPPhere -- this Thursday David Lynch's cult masterpieceEraserheadis marking its 40th anniversary!40 years have passed and I still haven't seen anything like it.Even among Lynch's work it still feels singular - you know how there's the blue key inMulholland Drivethat opens the little box?Sometimes I feel likeEraserheadis the blue key.Everything flows through it.It's his beautiful brain's Rosetta Stone,but good luck deciphering it.Anyway let's celebrate the film with this week's round of "Beauty vs Beast"shall we...

PREVIOUSLYYou guys gave James Marsden a very happy birthday week,giving hisEnchantedperformancea whopping 85% against Patrick Dempsey's.That's one of the soundest beatings I think we've ever had.SaidPoliVamp:

"Prince Edward all the way.He's so enthusiastically sincere that,even if the sex was terrible,he'd still find someway to make sure you enjoyed it."

Beauty vs Beast: Two Princes

Jason fromMNPPhere,wishing a happy 44th birthday to the perennially underrated James Marsden today!He's not so underrated that he's ever really gone without work at least (and he's currently riding the zeigeist a bit with the success ofWestworld,although I don't know if his moon-eyed compoke Teddy is really what's keeping anybody coming back to that show week after week) but underrated he still somehow seems.That's an impressive impression to give for someone as breathtakingly gorgeous as him!No small feat.

I suppose it's the "Nice Guy Loser"role he's been called on to play time and again - we've watched him watch The Girl go off with the right Mr.Right so many times we've built a stockpile of empathy for him.Speaking of,for today's for "Beauty vs Beast"let's hit up just one of those roles,the 2007 hit filmEnchanted(which insanely is turning 10 in November,can you believe it)...

PREVIOUSLYLast week'sIt Comes at Nightcontestbetween Joel Edgerton & Christopher Abbott's survivalist characters was a tight race for a bit but the latter pulled out in front eventually taking 62% of your vote - saidNick T:

"Their scenes together were my favorite parts of the film,their beards my favorite characters."

"my link saw something that night"

• The next James Bond will be...Damian Lewis?Our first ginger 007 you guys!Rumor only but I could see that happening.[Mirror]
• It's weird that there's not a definitive feature about the airplane-building Wright Brothers.Steven Spielberg wants to make one as it turns out.Seems like a good fit,no?[/Film]
• Life on the red planet?There's water at least.Did Fox pay NASA to announce this the week before the opening ofThe Martian;)?[The Guardian]

• Rising star Jonny Beauchamp says he owes everything to Roland Emmerich.Oh noooo.Tough debt.Also there's a photoshoot [Interview magazine]
• "I was being talked to like I was a silly pop singer."Grace Jones is still quotable/fabulous/singular.Just released a memoir [Time Out]
• "I've got tea.I've got cookies.No cake!"I cannot tell you how often my best friends and I quote The Log Lady fromTwin Peaks.RIP Catherine Coulson [Wired]
• "Marlene Dietrich believed her pussy was magic"is the first sentence of this article so you know you want to read it.Why can't we get a biopic about THESE anecdotes?[Pajiba]
• Is this really Frank Grillo (fromCaptain America: Winter Soldier) younger & NSFW?[OMG BLOG]
• Everyone in the world has forgotten that Disney was going to make an Enchanted sequel.Except Disney apparently.It's going to be calledDisenchanted.I shudder to think of the web exploding with "who should replace Amy Adams?"articles  [Coming Soon]
• "we were certainly looking for shots that told the story without a lot of cutting."- Roger Deakins on point of view and action sequences inSicario[The Film Stage]
• First image of Woody Harrelson as LBJ in Rob Reiner's forthcoming biopic [Empire]

Image of the Day
Thor and The Vision making out from theAvengers: Age of Ultrongag/blooper reel.Love the elegant placement of Thor's hammer.The best part of the image is surely that man about to shoot in the corner.

P.S.My favorite part isElizabeth Olsen dropping her accent when she messes up a line.

Video of the Day #1
The Revenantgets a new nearly 3 minute trailer.I won't be watching it because I love the teaser so much (previously discussed,the one with all the heavy breathing) and I don't want any more information in my eyeballs before seeing itthan we've already gotten.The reaction online seems breathless/"MASTERPIECEY"!but one should never bank on trailers to tell you what the finished quality of a movie will be,only to tell you whether it looks like you must see the movie.The last trailer that fooled me with "oh,this will be a masterpiece,hands down!"wasLittle Children(2006) and that's where I learned my lesson once and for all that the art of cutting trailers into 2-ish minute expressive gems was an entirely different art form (a beautiful art form if you don't give too much away) then making a 2 hour movie.

Video of the Day #2
