Top Five Movies of Megan Fox
Wow. I’m not too sure that there is a surprisingly tougher job than finding five good movies in Megan Fox’s filmography.* I mean, look at her. She’s gorgeous. She’s been seemingly everywhere on lists of the hottest actresses and celebrities. Yet in the years since her first major film role alongside Lindsay Lohan in “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” Megan has only been in eight movies before Judd Apataow’s “This is 40” gets released this Friday. That means there’s only room for three errors before the top five starts, as I’m not including either bookend that makes her list an even ten movies.
*Not surprisingly, seriously facetious.
So, battling for that last spot were “Whore,” a movie that looks like it is just trying to bank on Megan’s good name; “Jonah Hex,” a comic book movie that only managed a 33 on Metacritic; and a sequel, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” that wasn’t nearly as good as the original, and that’s saying a lot.
So, what’s left is just the five other movies on Megan’s filmography. I have to say, all have pieces that should make them worth watching.
My favorite Christmas movie is “Scrooged,” written by Mitch Glazer. (It’s followed by the TV version of “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” directed by Chuck Jones and the “Community” episode, “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas.”) So, this movie, written and directed by Glazer that stars Megan and Bill Murray will have to be watched after I get my fill of “Scrooged” over the holidays.
Another favorite writer made the fourth movie on Megan’s list, Diablo Cody. “Young Adult” was one of my favorite movies of last year. So, even though the reviews for this weren’t strong, Cody’s writing combined with the acting of Megan and Amanda Seyfried make it interesting enough for me.
I think this is really the movie that got Megan noticed as everyone and their brother saw it, as it made over $700 million worldwide. Is it great? No. Is it perfect? No. Is it loud and action packed with a fantastic looking Megan? Yes, yes it is.
Simon Pegg, star of “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz.” Jeff Bridges, star of “The Big Lebowski.” Kirsten Dunst of “Spider-Man,” “Melancholia” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Gillian Anderson of “The X-Files.” All of those actors and Megan make up the cast of this movie. It has to have some things worth watching, right? Right.
Again, it is the cast that makes this one appealing as Jennifer Westfeldt directs her husband Jon Hamm along with Adam Scott, Chris O’Dowd, Kristen Wiig and Megan in this comedy about friends that decide to have a kid together. That cast in a comedy makes it easy to top the list.
Agree? Disagree? Which movies would make your Megan Fox top five?
