Great Acting from the Stars
As we're nearing Oscar time, I figured I'd list out what I feel
are some of the best movies some of the stars of Star Wars have
ever made. Keep in mind that these are my opinions and may differ from
For Natalie Portman, I'm split between two movies: Beautiful Girls
and The Professional. However, I think I'll go with Girls
simply because she seemed like a much more stable actress in that movie.
To see Portman as a young girl becoming a woman... I know it's a small
part compared to other parts in the movie, but I just feel it's an amazing
I haven't seen too many Ewan McGregor movies. Trainspotting is
obviously the movie everyone is supposed to see to see him as a great actor.
Moulin Rouge was pretty cool too. I think it's quite amazing he
can go from playing druggies to singers to Jedis. He also did some amazing work in
Black Hawk Down and I think it's a shame he didn't get an Oscar nomination for
either that or Moulin Rouge. However, I think I can
most definately tell you what his worst movie is: Blue Juice. Do
not rent this surfer movie, it's terrible.
Harrison Ford, of course, is the only Star Wars star to really
get a solid career out of the movies and because of that it's hard to decide
what his best performance was. Some people like Sabrina. Others
love The Fugitive. However, I think I'll go against all odds and
say What Lies Beneath. My God, that movie is amazing, and his performance
I think is incredible. He's almost playing two different characters throughout
the entire movie, sometimes playing a loving husband and later playing
a maniac. He does such a good job with the character, I think.
