Emma Stone’s 10 Best Movies

Emma Stone

Emma Stone broke into films using her wit and comedic timing in films like Superbad, Zombieland and Easy A.  As she’s matured (and she’ll only turn 30 this year), Stone has shown she also has dramatic chops (The Help), the ability to do deep character work (Battle of the Sexes), and a talent for song and dance that won her an Oscar for La La Land.  Stone doesn’t work as much as other actresses of her generation, but following her Oscar success she is now the highest-paid actress in Hollywood and whatever projects lie in her future she has an almost unmatched power for someone her age in picking and choosing the films that will fill out her career’s filmography.

Ryan Gosling’s 10 Best Movies

Top 5: Steve Carrell Movies

Top 5: TV Episodes of All-Time (Comedy Edition)

Steve Carrell (and Jim Carrey….what HAPPENED to Jim Carrey?) returns to theatres this Friday with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone so we take this week’s top five to look at his best efforts on film.  Of course, it’s impossible to celebrate him without acknowledging him as one of the most talented comedic presences on TV over the last ten years.  From a correspondent on The Daily Show to Michael Scott in The Office (which should have ended with his departure), he’s shown on the small screen an amazing range for broad comedy to subtle, serious drama that he’s brought to his films.  So here’s my top 5 Carrell movies (based on his performance in them):
1. Little Miss Sunshine
2. Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy
3.The 40-Year Old Virgin
4. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
5. Crazy. Stupid. Love. (Despicable Me honorable mention for minions alone)
