Fave Keira movie

I just now finished watching King Arthur for the umpteenth time. I think that this was her best film yet. Anyone agree or disagree? (Also, I love her hair in the film. I wish it was still long and brown)

I would like to see Pure or Zhivago. So far the best Keira movie I've seen was Love, Actually. It was surprisingly enjoyable, even though Keira wasn't on screen too much. She did look nice when she was, though.

Well I think Bend it Like Beckham was her most realistic performance, but I really like The Hole, even though her character sucked, and she really wasn't very important at all.

Love Actually.

Probably not totally for her role, I just think Rowan Atkinson is God.

I'm gonna have to go with Pirates of the Caribbean, only because she was incredibly hot in that movie. Then, maybe, The Hole.

Pirates of the Caribbean > The Hole > Dr. Zhivago > Love Actually > Bend It Like Beckham > Princess Of Thieves > King Arthur.

Doctor Zhivago. She's awesome in it, and the ending made me cry.

To be honest, the worst Keira performance so far, in my opinion, was King Arthur. Either the director was meddling with how things were to be said, or she just had an off day when they recorded the 'trailer' scene, where Guinevere is burning Arthur. However, the nice scenery, the whole atmosphere of the movie makes up for the Keira fuck up and Clive Owen's dreadful attempt at acting, so it wasn't too bad to watch after all.

Well, either way, I think King Arthur was the worst (Clive Owen totally ruined that one), and Doctor Zhivago the best.

The acting in it is brilliant, the story heartbreaking and the scenery is beautiful. I very much recommend it indeed. The lunch-delivery bloke from Love Actually plays a rather large part in it too, in a totally different role.

I suck at descriptions. It's just awesome, k?

For my opinion, just see Richard's thing- but with the Hole and Dr. Zhivago switched around. And another reason for liking POTC is Johnny Depp's awesome-ness.

I thought she was pretty hot in King Arthur and Love Actually lol. But yah, POTC was definitely the best (Acting wise anyways)

I blame the director for the over acting in King Arthur. It seemed to run pretty much through the entire cast. Fuqua should stick to cops and robbers action films.
My favorite film would have to be Pirates of The Caribbean.
Her best acting roles would be Dr. Zhivago and Pure. However, these films make me feel like I'm watching my daughter walk down the jetway to go back to her mother.

personally, i prefer a) Pirates, 2) beckham, and d) the Hole (for obvious reasons) dr. zhivago was ok, closer to the book actually, than the original. the problem w/king arthur was the script. the actors had nothing to work with. direction and story were ok, but all the dialogue sounded really stupid.

Pirates was cool the first 5 times I was forced to watch it-now...I don't watch it if I have to.

Oh, Richard was right. Keira was especially hot in Pirates.

No money. I already begged Mother for some cash and in turn bought my new book about Judy Garland. Renting is much better. Besides, the movie might suck.
