Happy Birthday Helena Bonham Carter!

Birthday HelenaToday is Helena Bonham Carter’s birthday, and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank her for all the great work that’s she’s done across so many different films, from Fight Club to Conversations With Other Women (pictured). She’s such a versatile actress and I’ll gladly watch anything that she is in. I’m still not decided on whether I think The Lone Ranger is going to be any good or not, but I do aim to watch it,  in part because of Helena’s role in it.

Check out the trailer below:

In other news; I’m sorry for my rather long, unexplained absence. Life just seemed to stop me getting on and writing recently, but I’m glad to say that I’m now back and should be posting regularly again. Look out for my belated Gatsby review which will be up soon,  and my selection of the top ten films of this last decade!

Thanks for reading!



  1. Happy birthday, Helena!She doesn’t always choose the best projects but she always delivers!

    1. Yeah she certainly does. Glad to hear you’re also a fan!

  2. Excellent post on a talented actress who is memorable in almost everything she does.

    1. Thanks, have you seen Conversations With Other Women? That has one of my favourite of her performances in it.

    Nice post 🙂 Glad to see you are back 🙂

    1. Thanks Natalie, it’s nice to be back 😀

  5. She’s alright, she’s definitely been in a lot of great movies (primarily Fight Club, of course).

    I’m not sure about Lone Ranger, still, but this latest trailer did at least look action packed.

    And welcome back dude. 😉

    1. Yeah Lone Ranger could be really good, but I’m not holding my hopes up too high. I get the feeling it could be pretty disappointing unfortunately.
      Thanks man!

  6. Happy belated b’day Helena. She’s a terrific actress even if her movies aren’t always my cup of tea. I saw a few of her earlier roles recently and she is quite versatile. In any case, welcome back James!

    1. Thanks Ruth! I think that she is very versatile, even if recently she seems to have been typecast in the same kind of roles.

  7. I hate Beatrix!!

    But, really, Carter is an interesting character actress. Also, I like that in red carpet events, she’s always photographed as someone who dares to wear something… erm… different–some questionable but, hey, never boring.

    1. Oh man, I also hate Bellatrix!
      Yeah it’s really refreshing to see someone breaking from expectations like that.

  8. Bellatrix** oops

  9. Oh, I love her. She is such a talented, unique actresses. She has wonderful personality too.

    1. Yeah I love watching her in interviews; she’s very interesting and funny. Have you seen her on Craig Ferguson’s show?

  10. I’m a bit late, but I love her!
    My housemate did an essay on her actually.

    1. She would be an interesting person to write on I would imagine. Have you seen her in many interviews?
