I absolutely adore Emma and her work, but I do not think "The Bling Ring" seems like a nice project for her. Honestly, I was done with the story from the moment it broke. Then there was the reality show on E! and the Vanity Fair article. It's just disgusting, and giving it more and more attention is just sickening. I am surprised. I do not see the appeal.


As a Software Engineer, I find myself very disconnected from most popular culture. So, reading the premise of this movie was the first I had heard of the whole ordeal.
Having been a fan of Emma's for nearly a decade, now, I find myself excited to see how she plays this role. It's so different from that to which we're all accustomed.

I'm reminded of Robin Williams in "One Hour Photo". When I first saw the trailer for that, I thought "Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam, Flubber, Aladdin...? He's going to be awful for this serious and creepy role!" I was way off. He nailed it! I personally feel it was one of his best performances.

I expect the same from Emma in "The Bling Ring". It's certainly a counter-Emma role; but if she pulls it off, then everybody will realize that she does - in fact - have a respectable range, as an actress.

Nice to see a fellow computer programmer on here. I am majoring in it right now.

I personally think Emma is great for the role. It's very 'anti Hermoine.' Spoiled rich girl gets into trouble, gets arrested, and causes mayhem. Very disconnected from the character of Hermoine, who isn't spoiled at all and very rarely gets into trouble (and always plays by the rules.)

She needs this role, I think, if she ever wants to strip herself from the world of Harry Potter. I don't want Emma's career to go downhill, because people can't separate her from her previous character. That has happened to so many child stars, it isn't funny...I want Emma to be able to show off her acting skills in many different roles.

Mind if I ask where you're going to school?

Back on topic: I agree. This is a defining role in Emma's quest to permanently avoid being typecast as a fantasy actress. That said, I'm not too sure how confident I am in her ability to pull it off. Don't get me wrong: I'm rooting for her, all the way. But I wasn't too pleased with her performance in Ballet Shoes.
I just got "My Week with Marilyn" but I haven't yet watched it. Hopefully, she shows a bit more range, there...

I need to see "My Week with Marilyn". I need to.. I'll have to Netflix it.

I kinda like the idea behind this movie. It's not only different for Emma but I think it's pretty bad ass.

Emma on Twitter (8. March): I don't really 'star' in the Bling Ring. I am probably 3rd/4th of the lead characters. (In case media/marketing is a bit misleading.) The awesome Israel Broussard and Katie Chang take the helm.


OMG this is so....... Emma! :) :) :)

And she is working for her degree..... latest tweet:

I told my dad I am learning to touch type and he said he still uses the "hunt and peck" technique. And now I'm crying laughing.

THAT really is so Emma. Who the fuck "learns" to touch type? Spend more time on the internets, and touch typing will ingrain itself into your brain [/muscle memory]

Mobile devices = right, you cannot write essays for university on them

I wonder, how she wrote her stuff for university during the first 2 1/2 years of studies.... maybe using the "eagle-system" .... :yesyes:

I've seen some people that were pretty fast even at hunt and peck. Lot's of people sort of learn how to type on their own. I took a typing class to learn properly and it improved my speed and accuracy quite a bit. Doesn't really help on a phone or tablet, but I'm actually fairly fast at thumb typing.

Some 10 years ago when I was hanging around in chatrooms much I was pretty bloody fast. I don't think I could have improved upon that.

So Emma, get on top of it. Talk to your fans more. We're here to entertain you. :king:

It's like doing the rain dance; there may or may not be rain. But if you're thirsty, you don't want to be the idiot who didn't try it.

If it would help a little that she would speak to us, I would dance around a campfire or barefoot on burning coals during a whole night ..........
But it is more likely that the new pope is visiting in shorts and flip flops St Peter's cathedral, holding a Coke and a BigMac as that Emma get in touch with her fans - even just to learn how to type.

Wow, I just saw the trailer, and that looks like a good movie.

 

I hope it is. It's good that she's breaking out of the children's movies, and into more adult roles. I'd hate for her to be portrayed as Hermoine forever. 

 

I think it was after seeing Perks, that I realized there was hope for Emma after Harry Potter.

Sigh...I come back hoping some people have outgrown the sarcasm- is just so uncalled for on here...anyway I am not going to say anything anymore...

The tweets she sent were so sweet-very Emma-I love how she gave props to the people starring in Bling Ring calling herself 3rd/4th in it...very humble and modest young woman :) As for the dad comment-I loved that...agree dook, I only learned how to type actually not thru a class but thru emails...I used to be SO slow at typing but now I can actually look at the screen and not have to look down (too often ;)).

 

Anyway, dying for Bling Ring-the teaser was SO awesome!!!! :) Love it! These kids were pretty clever-not being caught for over a year! Wow!
