Five Favorite Films with Emily Blunt

Summary

Emily Blunt arrived proper for most audiences as Meryl Streep's sarcastic, binge-dieting assistant in The Devil Wears Prada -- in which she stole many a scene from the Oscar legend -- and since then has proved a versatile star across all kinds of genres, be they comedy, drama, sci-fi and most things in between. This week, Blunt co-stars opposite Ewan McGregor in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, director Lasse Hallström's picturesque comedy-drama about a fisheries expert enlisted by an eccentric sheik to bring a river to the Arabian desert. We had the chance to speak with the actress recently about the movie, her friendship with McGregor, and some of her forthcoming projects. Read on for that, but first -- here are her five favorite films. Back to Article

She has a good 5, particularly Princess Bride. Well spoken, she knows exactly where each movie falls and why.

She closed on a very strong note with "The Lives of Others," which is one of the greatest movies I've ever seen ....and that last scene is everything she says it is.

The same with me, I thought "Pan's Labyrinth" was a shoe-in to win the Oscar for "Best Foreign Film" because it made more money in North America than all the other contenders put together as well as awards from other awards shows! And then out of nowhere "The Lives Of Others" won making me more curious about what it is that movie has that's so great, and after seeing it, I started to understand why it got the recognition that it did!

Yeah, the one time I care about awards, is when it privies me to foreign films.

I think what she meant was that same premise has been used so many times in the intervening years from the Jaws sequels to SYFYs Sharktopus/Galligator movies to ridiculous effect that it makes what Spielberg did with it all the more impressive.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is the greatest film ever made.
