So I'm guessing none of these babes get their tits out...? What a waste of a good costume flick! :-(

A catfight between Johansson and Portman, with the inevitable make out session at the end.

I saw her in that Wes Andersen Darleeling crapfest and she was nigh-naked. with her robs bulging out like that she looked like an anerexic greyhound. Johanssen I would throw one into.

...is the complete lack of nudity or incestuous lesbianism between ScarJo and Portman. You sign those two up for a "period piece" about a scandalous love affair and neither gets naked?!? Someone needs to be fired...stat. But I agree with Borgnine Jr: Portman is too 12-year-old boyish to be hot. Johanssen is the bee's knees, however.

She's not that hot, either. She's an expert at pushing up her tits and pouting so she looks hotter through 2 tons of makeup than she really is, but if you gave me a choice between either of the two female leads in "Ghost World", I'd pick Thora Birch as the real natural beauty of the two-- And she doesn't have to push up her tits to gain the appearance of excellent cleavage. <p> And Bana-- I never got people's fascination with this guy. He's so VANILLA. He's bland. Jonathon Rhys-Myers is just a better screen presence all-around. <p> Natalie Portman is certainly more desirable than that mannikin Johansson.

Portman seems to be making a habit of being in underrated movies - this last year there has been Goya's Ghosts, My Blueberry Nights, Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Paris Je T'Aime, even the Darjeeling Limited got some some shocking reviews. I'm not saying any of those were out-and-out great films, but I don't think any of them deserved the write-ups they had - I felt they were all worthwhile. Maybe she needs to be in a few films that are more than just "worthwhile," but people can be incredibly harsh on Natalie Portman I find.

was enough to give her a pace for any film. She was so fucking hot in that movie. The rain scene, holy Lord

For something taking place in the 18th Century, everything looked like a store display at Sears.

Johansson affects the same blank, lifeless stare and open-mouthed dumbfoundedness in every single role. And mooch, it's not that Portman's films are underrated, it's that she's an extremely limited, stilted, altogether unconvincing actress whose lack of talent is finally, FINALLy starting to catch up to the roles she is being offered. It's interesting you think people are harsh on Portman, cuz I find it to be just the opposite: aside from SW, which everybody gives her a free pass on anyway, people prostrate themselves before her when really she hasn't been good in anything since The Professional. People are a lot harsher on Johansson and on Knightley I think, but Portman is always this untouchable Miss Perfect that can do no wrong, even though she's extremely mediocre in every way. Anyway, who needs these two talentless, uncharismatic, uppity broads now that Ellen Page has arrived?

I think he is one that needs a director. Look no further than his amazing 2 minutes of screen time in "Blackhawk Down".

Portman's performance in TOBG might change your mind. It is really pretty terrific. I was kind of feeling the same as you until I saw this movie today but now I am back on the Portman bandwagon. I can't imagine why you're so exited about Ellen Page though. I mean really? She's not awful - but talk about overrated. The hype for both her and Juno are completely inexplicable to me. It was a mediocre film, saved by some good performances from the adult supporting cast. Ellen Page was actually pretty wooden for most of the film. That it won best screenplay is a travesty. First Akiva Goldsman and now Diablo Cody. The mind boggles. That said, Page was really good in Hard Candy, but that movie was so terrible I almost hate her for just being involved in it. Anyway, The Other Boleyn Girl is not usually my kind of movie, and - given the subject matter - it really could have used some steamier sex, but I actually found it quite compelling. Maybe that is because I am not as familiar with the story as Capone and I am not comparing it to the Tudors, but the theater I saw it in actually applauded at the end.

The way I worded that last sentence it sounds like I was saying that the theater applauded at the end because I was not comparing the movie to The Tudors. Hopefully you can sift through my poor grammar and figure out what I was actually trying to say.
