Best of... Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is known for her diversity, at least that's what I think. None of her roles are a like. And she's very natural and pure. And she dares to be different. Her look is very distinctive, which she uses well. Some reasons why she's one of my favorites. And here are her best movies.

"Elizabeth" and "Elizabeth: The Golden Age"
Both great movies and she portayed Elizabeth I so very well. In real life, she could be a queen.

"Pushing Tin"
This movie also has John Cusack in it. A man who gets me weak in the knees. This film is a little underrated, because it's actually very good. I just don't think people know it.

"Veronica Guerin"
I loved this movie. What a wonderfull story and a great acting performance by Cate. This film is also a bit sad, because I kinda sympathized Veronica. Normally I don;t like journalists in movies.

"Lord of the Rings Trilogy"
It's not my favorite trilogy of all time, but it deserves a mention in this list. I don't need to explain why.

"The Aviator"
While most of the credit goes to Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett was the one who won an Oscar for it. As Katherine Hepburn. Well deserved off course!

I think this one is my favorite Cate-movie. I love how the story is told and how the pieces of the puzzle come together. And the scenes between her and Brad Pitt are very strong and honest.

"Notes on a Scandal"
Fantastic performance by Cate and her co-star Judi Dench. It's not a spectacular movie, but there's a lot happening in the story. It kept my attention for 92 minutes.

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"
When I saw the trailer, I tought it was weird. A man who was born old and gets younger every year. When a friend of mine lend it to me, I was fascinated. It's a great movie, a very long move tough, but I really liked it. Enough to put it on my list.

I would put "I'm Not There" on the list, because I read a lot of good things about it. But I simply haven't seen it yet.
