The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
This Emily movie was never about her and starred big names like Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in the lead. With The Devil Wears Prada, Blunt proved her ability to shine on screen even with a supporting role which led to more work for her in Hollywood. She even earned a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the film.
The sassy character of Emily Charlton still brings a smile to everyone’s face and my favorite part of the character was her one-liners like “I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.” The movie takes a humorous dig at the fashion industry and it’s working. Even after years of its release the movie still has the potential to be a hit among the current generation.

Christopher Nolan’s directorial Oppenheimer has been the talk of the town and does not look like the fever is going down anytime soon. The biopic movie takes us through the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, a physicist who made a major contribution towards developing the world’s first nuclear weapon. Cillian Murphy played the titular lead character and this is undoubtedly one of Cillian Murphy’s best movies to date.
In the movie, Emily Blunt played the character of Kitty Oppenheimer, the wife of Robert Oppenheimer. But Kitty is not your traditional housewife with no voice of her own. Her depth of character and strong opinions stand out in a male-dominated society and if you love to watch Blunt’s portrayal of strong women, the interview scene from the movie will not disappoint you. If you have not already watched the movie trust me you are missing out on a true masterpiece.

With a storyline so fine it’s hard to believe Looper was released a decade ago. The sci-fi action thriller is set in 2074 where Joe, played by Joseph Gorden, is a ‘looper’ or assassin who works for a crime syndicate. What makes the movie different from your regular gangster movies is that their boss sends men from the future to be killed into the past where loopers can dispose of the body without any evidence.
Loopers are not aware that their own future self will be sent back in the past to be killed by their younger self in order to erase all evidence. But when Joe learns about this he prepares himself to face his younger self and when the day comes he successfully escapes. But the story does not end here, in fact, this is just the beginning.
