moviesTO #33: The Notorious Ellen Page

Posted by Matt / May 28, 2006


Canada's got a new "it" girl, and it's Halifax native Ellen Page, who has supposedly been acting for a really long time but is only getting notice now due to the power-whammy double-team effect of Hard Candy (which is excellent) and X-Men: The Last Stand (which is not).

Today's podcast includes:

* Review of Hard Candy
* Review of X-Men: The Last Stand, a.k.a. X3
* Summary look at the first two X-movies, a.k.a. the ones that didn't suck
* News about Cinematheque and Female Eye

Awesome podcast this week. Glad to know I wasn't the only person that thought Brett Ratner massacred the previously-awesome X-Men franchise with his latest installment. Hard Candy, despite being a bit unsettling at times, was quite a well-crafted film, and Page truly showed her acting chops in that movie opposite Patrick Wilson.

Thanks Sameer! And based on X3's precipitous dropoff in box office on Saturday, it looks like we weren't the only ones who thought Ratner messed up a good thing.

how do i get her number or email address cuz ive fallen in love with her in x men3 n cant stop thinking about her since

Uhhh... seriously? I don't think her agent - or any agent, for anyone, ever - would actually be interested in fielding romantic interests. Try finding an Ellen Page lookalike on Lavalife or something.

I live in Halifax also. I think Ellen did an amazing job in Hard Candy! You might also want to catch her in Mouth to Mouth which is available for rent at Blockbuster.

Never want to step on a listener, but I'm curious... why so many Halifaxers visiting blogTO?

Why not?!!
Actually it's because of the Ellen Page content!
