Five Favorite Films with Hayden Panettiere

Summary

If you've watched any popular television over the past five years or so, chances are you probably caught an episode or two of the sci-fi/fantasy series Heroes, and if you've seen Heroes, chances are you're already quite familiar with Hayden Panettiere, who played nigh indestructible cheerleader Claire Bennet. This week, she makes a return to ensemble drama with Fireflies in the Garden, starring alongside the likes of Willem Dafoe, Julia Roberts, Emily Watson, and Ryan Reynolds . RT chatted with Hayden about her new movie, as well as what it was like working with such a distinguished cast, and how thankful she is for her career. But before we get to all that, here are Hayden Panettiere's Five Favorite Films! Back to Article

Well.. In that case, he's got his work cut out for him. That's quite a dragon!

A great list from a great actress and singer. Not many know that Hayden has released a few songs already, her voice is amazing. I think this list says a lot about Hayden's personality. She looks pretty fine in that picture too.

Anyone who hasn't seen Life is Beautiful should have; brilliant film, both heart-wrenching and funny at the same time.

Some good films on the list, and she's hot - which is a plus! I was also a big fan of Heroes and sad that it ended, despite it being pretty poor the past couple of seasons.

I blame the fat bastard who played Matt, at the end of the first season when they were doing the giant Season 2 premiere he went out and said "It's so good there's no way we can screw it up." Right then I knew the show was doomed. You don't tempt fate like that.

HEROES lost its way after the third season when the time traveling and alternative histories started to take over. The writers started to self-destruct.

Legend of the Falls was good. Moulin Rouge however was a disaster of epic proportions.

Think Moulon was much more aimed at the ladies. I've never met a guy who liked it or a girl who didn't.

I'm with you, Big. The only guys I know who admit to seeing it do so where their souls leave their eyes - nonverbally confessing that a girl made them watch it.

OK, folks not trying to question anyones sexuality or insult them. Just speaking in generalities.

She's got some good films here, and you won't find me insulting her because it's all so subjective about what you like and what your life has been like up to this point. I will say that I don't like Moulon but but can't really judge it fairly: I saw it with some bitch who totally did a head job (not the good kind!) on me so can't separate the two. Wish I could because it had great visuals and energy.

I'm gay... love musicals... and I hated this film! I also don't know very many guys that like it but there are a couple of my friends that do which I find mildly surprising because they all hate other musicals! haha

She was good in Scream 4. In fact, she was the only new character that I didn't hate.

Oct 14 - 06:20 AM

Bradly Martin

She had the best scene in Scream 4. Where she named off all the remakes made since Scream 4 started Production. She literally explained why Scream 4 was horrible in that one scene. Classic.

That list she rattled off was great. Now that I think about it, 3 of the movies she rattled off were remakes of Craven's own films (Nightmare, Last House, Hills Have Eyes).

the holocaust is too difficult and challenging a subject to be reduced to a light-toned crowd-pleaser, and that's why I don't respect "Life Is Beautiful". But I do like Hayden Panettiere and would watch any of these films with her any day.

Comedy is the medicine of the Soul, and the Jewish people have known this for centuries. And it was very respectful, not like "Family Guy" or something.

Agreed. The Holocaust can only be sad? There can't be any happiness found at all in anything that took place that entire time? That wasn't one moment or one individual that can produced any amount of joy ever during the Holocaust?

How to Train Your Dragonm is overrated. So is Kung Fu Panda.
Pixar films have always been better with a deeper meaning.
