14 thoughts on “WCW: Scarlett Johansson

  1. Finally! The prestige has lovely costumes, actually. Scarlett Johansson’s character has this lovely lavender striped natural form outfit in her last scene in the film.

  2. Other Boleyn Girl. I will repeat what I had commented before, that Ms Johansson does NOT like to be referred to as “Scarjo.” She says she finds it “lazy and disrespectful.”

  3. I don’t recommend A Good Woman. Helen Hunt is very miscast and in her anachronistic flat American delivery can’t cope with Wilde’s witty lines. Her acting was rather poor as well, surprisingly – she’s a good actress usually! The whole production was listless. Costumes were good…

  4. I have no memory of her being in “The Man Who Wasn’t There,” so maybe time to revisit. And as snoozefest-y as it was, she was stunning in “The Girl with the Pearl Earring.”

    So many to hunt down and watch!

  5. I’ve tried a couple of times to make it through Hail, Caesar! … to no avail. I think I’ve seen the rest of these though, GWAPE the most often. I tried to like the Prestige and just… couldn’t.

  6. Oh yes a Good Woman is pretty nice it’s based in Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan except it changes the setting to the 1920’s/30’s i think it was influenced by the 1935 german version overall is pretty great as something that sticks to the heart of Wilde’s masterpiece should be as for Black Dahlia she’s pretty great as well as Featuring my favorite performance by Mia Kishner since Anna Karenina

  7. Hitchcock is actually surprisingly great. Not only does it have have ScarJo, but stars an incandescent Helen Mirren who gives a weapons grade performance as Alma Reville, Hitchcock’s wife and unsung collaborator and cinematic genius in her own right, and in one great seat, wears an amazing red suit.

    Also, Toni Collette is Hitchcock’s brisk assistant who has a droolworthy professional wardrobe.

  8. Speaking of The Other Boleyn girl, could you do a WCW on Natalie Portman? Because she’s also starred in some frock flicks.

    (Could you also review the upcoming Starz drama, Becoming Elizabeth?)

  9. The Other Boleyn Girl veered between being outright bad and craptastic. I liked The Prestige when I saw it, but I forgot the that Scarlett Johansson starred in it. I have very, very vague memories of An American Rhapsody. Overall, I think my favorite performance of hers isn’t in a FrockFlick but in Ghost World way back in 2001.

  10. She has such a perfect face for 1930s-50s glam era (she is lovely in general but that era seems to make her shine in terms of style/look). I really enjoyed Hail! Caesar and Jojo Rabbit was incredible–she has a much larger role in the latter, and the stories are rather different, but she does both well.
