The Top Ten

The Silence of the Lambs
Jodie's most valued movie


STUNNING! This movie chills your blood
One of my all time favorite movies.

I love the premise behind the story, Jodie acting is as spot on as usual, which I mean as a compliment. So many alien movies have us in fear, but in this story our alien cousins are asisting us humans to visit them; however, we have to build the ship, therefore showing a degree of intelligence. They I presume are keen to keep there distance incase we are hostile; it could be the first of many encounters, but we have to be worthy.
Her sincerity in needing scientific proof for a belief in something she cannot quantify is tangible. Such an amazing performance.

One of the finest movies I've ever seen. It lingered in my thoughts for days. The acting and story line were amazing. WOW to movies like this that don't have a scrap of CG just solid REAL talent!


5The Brave One
Absolute action from start to finish, another amazing performance by jodie foster and I can't believe is is rated above flight plan even though that was a fave film too, but this film should be rated 2nd or 3rd not 8th, if you haven't watched it folks this is brill
Great movie! Really touching inspiring acting from Jodie Foster! ^. ^

I just finished writing a novel that inspired a lot from Jodie Foster in this movie, but I'm writing a different story of course.

I love you Erica Bain (Jodie Foster)... !
Just finished watched, great performance, I would watch it over ^^ over, Emmy winner if I ever seen one

6Taxi Driver
silence of the lambs is up there but taxi driver remains one of the best character studied s ever put on film and foster is nearly as amazing as de niro!
This should be number 2, and as an overall movie is better than Silence of the Lambs. Her role is pivital of how a young runaway is depicted and how hard they have to survive.


Playing a prostitute at 12 yrs of age... NOT an easy job

7The Accused
the way she fight for herself and the way she proof her self is very touchy specially when she describe about what happened to her to praiseworthy
This was a simply great film. It was very moving when her hard shell cracked towards the end and she became a much nicer character - although I personally loved her character from the beginning, she had a bit of icewater in her veins!
By far, one of her best films!


8Panic Room
Very good thriller. Inventive, see-saw battle between good and evil right until the end. Bravo.


Intense the whole way though. Great thriller. Can't look away.

9Anna and the King
I enjoyed watching Ana and the King.
Very classy, rich, well performed movie. The scenery is amazing, Jodi is top notch here too!

The Contenders
