Emily Blunt

Elegant, alluring and one hell of a talented actress to boot, Emily Blunt is 27 today.

The first film I saw her in was 'My Summer of Love' in 2004, an experience comparable to watching Kate Winslet in 'Heavenly Creatures' a decade earlier, the Major New Talent Alarm blaring out in my head like in klaxon: WHOOP! WHOOP! WHOOP! STAR IN THE MAKING!

In both cases, it's been nice to be proved right. (If you're in any doubts about how iconic Emily Blunt is, by the way, I have a challenge for you: try finding a poster for 'The Wolfman' with Benicio del Toro on it.)

A glass is being raised to Ms Blunt at chez Agitation this evening, and a review of 'The Wolfman' is on the cards for tomorrow.

Sweet, can't wait to read your WOLFMAN review! I decided to hold off on seeing it until it comes out on DVD.

I'd have had the review done and on the blog by now but the firm I work for are actually making me do some work today, the bastards! Look out for the review later.

Wise decision to wait for the DVD, I think. 'The Wolfman' is getting so much attention it seems like everyone in the blogosphere has posted a review. I probably wouldn't have bothered adding my own thoughts if not for my paeon to the charms of Emily Blunt yesterday.

I really like Emily Blunt as well, esp. in THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and WIND CHILL, in which she actually makes a pretty unlikeable character, well, likeable! I too am curious to read your views on the new WOLFMAN film.

Yeah, she stole the show in 'The Devil Wears Prada'. I've not seen 'Wind Chill' yet, but it looks interesting.

My review of 'The Wolfman' is now online.
