Re: Best Actresses


Eva Green (VERY underrated)


her main problem is that she's pretty much a expert at being in bad movies as i am actually surprised she manages to do that pretty consistently.

there is only two movies of her's of any real worth but really only one movie/role that stands out which is Casino Royale (2006) as she has solid chemistry with Daniel Craig on screen as i would say in terms of ALL of the Bond movies it's Eva Green/Daniel Craig(Casino Royale (2006)) along with Sean Connery/Honor Blackman(Goldfinger(1964)) that stand out from the rest as everyone else is a distant 3rd to those two combos.

p.s. the only other movie she appeared in that i thought was solid outside of Casino Royale (2006)(8.5-9/10), which is easily the best movie she appeared in, is... The Salvation (2014-2015)(6.5-7/10).

Re: Best Actresses

Cate Blanchett for me.
She can play any role.

Why so serious?
