Top Five Movies of Olivia Thirlby

What is the tipping point to make sure you see a movie? Is it just the subject? Is it the director? Is the writer? Is it the actors? Or is it some combination of all of those things and more and when it reaches a critical mass, you know you?ll be going to see it?

It?s probably the last. We all have complex mechanisms that make us want to see movies and then that same bit of internal dialogue determines how we feel about it afterwards.

Lovely Olive

In doing these movie rankings of different actresses, like this week with the lovely Olivia Thirlby, I tend to list the other actors that star in a movie, maybe the director, or maybe some fact about the story that intrigues/intrigued me. However, what makes all of those things pile up in my consciousness and compel me to act becomes a little tough to judge. Is it the presence of three good actors like ?The Kids Are All Right?? Probably, because I can?t think of any other reason to see that movie and I wish I hadn?t wasted my time. Would it matter if ?The Dark Knight Rises? had a few different actors? Probably not, because I would have still seen it, though the acting contributions of the cast did make it quite good.

When I examined the movies of Olivia, I saw quite a few duplicate subjects and good reasons to see a film. I?ll explain more in her top five most compelling movies.

5. The Darkest Hour

Oh, don?t think that I don?t know this isn?t a good movie. I doubt it approaches good. Both ?The Wackness? and ?Being Flynn? are probably better movies. However, sometimes a bad movie is so much more interesting than an average one. Plus, as the topic is what makes me want to see a movie, along with Olivia, ?The Darkest Hour? stars Joel Kinnaman, the best thing about the very bad TV show, ?The Killing.?

4. Snow Angels

I discussed this movie when I examined the movies of?Kate Beckinsale and I didn?t even realize the potential added interest of Olivia. Like I said above, all the creative talent involved with ?Snow Angels? compels me to see it.

3. Margaret

Ditto for this movie that I discussed when I looked at the movies of?Rosemarie DeWitt.

2. United 93

This is the perfect example of subject matter that kept me away from a critically acclaimed movie. I know it will probably be a good movie, I?m just not ready to watch anything about 9/11 just yet, even almost 11 years later. Give me a couple more years, and I?m sure I?ll give it a watch.

1. Juno

The number one movie of?Ellen Page as well and by now you should notice something about this list. There are a lot of wonderful actresses that combine with Olivia on some cool movies. Now I just have to get my Netflix queue moving.

Agree? Disagree? Which movies would make your Olivia Thirlby top five?
