She has an annoying overplayed awkwardness about her personality though. It's just strange and those are the kind of girls that are intentionally "weird" and strive to be overly different and strange just for the sake of being different.

That's just me though. Plus I don't think she's attractive, but I've been known to have a weird taste.

I get the overplayed awkwardness thing about her personality....good point. Right now I find it attractive but defitnitely see how it could get old rather quickly.

Really...!? Well, that's strange. I really don't get the major buzz behind that performance still.

Watch "Winter's Bone".

Never got around to seeing that one. Just from the, what, 3 movies I've seen with her (?), she has still yet to impress me at the level some people are supposedly seeing.

Winter's Bone is probably her best flick, and it was up for best picture too I believe. That movie+Silver Linings Playbook puts her up there on top actresses right now. She just has to stay away from bad movies like House at the End of the Street. Hopefully an Oscar will help her do that.

SLP was good and I understand the Oscar noms but I'm just not a fan of the casting (not the individual actors)

It just didn't vibe with me.

Best directed/acted movie of the year.

We need to get used to movies in which characters show realistic emotion and aren't on the 27th take of a scene in which their movements need to be perfectly calculated. Minimalism/realism is the next big thing in movies because it will gel with the viewers.

totally agree. if you pay attention, you can tell with something was ad libbed or some improv was going on. i hate conversations in a film where a person doesn't repeat themselves or has some form of bad cadence.

movies where the conversations are perfect yet manufactured don't do it for me.

i like directors, and Russell is one of them, where improv is expected and you might get the script for your scenes early that am. you don't have time to over think it or put too much of yourself into it.

She is a tad goofy off screen but Winters Bone does show some the gal can act.

How can you not love Jennifer Lawrence after watching that? Bradley Cooper who knew he was such a great actor? I enjoyed it 2 thumbs up.
