Elizabeth Banks

Born February 10, 1974

Elizabeth Banks is one of those truly funny people in Hollywood. On top of that, she is a director and a producer. Banks is going to be pushing the envelope and setting the trend in Hollywood for a long time.

Noteworthy

  • Pitch Perfect 2 – Director – While this movie didn’t hit me the same way as the original, I still love it. Tremendous movie with lots of heart and great humor. It works on so many levels. Oh yeah, and she is funny as hell in this movie.
  • Pitch Perfect – Producer – I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I would never have thought that a movie about college acapella teams would be nearly this good or that it would suck me in but I love it. Oh yeah, and she is funny as hell in it too.
  • Wet Hot American Summer Series – The whole set of these. The original movie and both the series on Netflix. They capture the summer raunchy comedy perfectly. Ensemble cast ASSEMBLE!
  • Zack and Miri Make a Porno – Anybody who knows me knew this was going to pop up on her list. Kev Smith movie with a lot of heart and plenty of over the top humor.

I think comedy has to be very fearless, or it just gets bland.

Embrace that Movie for What It Is or Was Supposed to Be

Embrace that Movie for What It Is or Was Supposed to Be. Do not make the assumption that every movie is made to win an Oscar. Not all movies are film or art and not all films are good movies. To me, a movie is built, designed for entertainment. A movie can be...
