Mega Rants - Emma WatsonMegaSoulhero Emma Watson is a terrible actress! Seriously! Why do people praise her so much? She has absolutely no talent! None whatsoever! And yet she keeps getting cast in movies! My god!
I know she played Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise, but even in those movies her acting wasn't good! Her acting was passable back when she was younger, but it seems like she learned absolutely nothing! She still gives the same bland performance that she always gives! But because those movies are so beloved, people say that Emma was spectacular in it! And I'll admit, I guess the way she portrays Hermione is kind of how Hermione would act. But the problem is when the character is supposed to show emotion, she doesn't! Emma always has that same bored look on her face! Would it kill her to actually emote once in a while!? People hate when actors are overacting. But when an actor is underacting, does that make it any better? No! I've seen people actually defend Emma by saying that she's pretty. First of all, I wouldn't say she's pretty. She's cute at best. Second of all, what does that have to do with anything!? An actor or actress should be cast in movies for their good looks (if needed) AND their acting skills! Which makes me wonder how Kristen Stewart keeps getting cast in movies since she doesn't have any of those qualities.
Emma Watson's best performance would probably have to be Tale of Despereaux. Mainly because it's an animated movie and only her voice is heard. But even through her voice, you can feel the emotion of the character! This is something I'll give Emma credit for. She's a decent voice actor. Speaking of voice, let's talk about her performance in Beauty and the Beast. She was HORRENDOUS!!!!! She was so bad in that movie! How did they let something like that make it into a major motion picture! I'm probably exagerrating, but I'm not when saying that this was Emma Watson's worst performance. She plays the main character Belle. Which means she has to sing. The problem is, she can't sing! Even the auto tune couldn't make it sound any better! Also, if you play both versions of the scene where Belle runs out into the fields, you'll see a very big difference. Belle in the animated version is actually showing emotion through her movements as well as Paige O'Hara singing in such a powerful voice! Emma Watson, however, does the exact opposite! She barely moves and she doesn't look or sound like she cares! She's just like "Well I danced a little and sang. Could I have my paycheck now?" There are moments when Emma does a great job at belting out her lines, but the expression on her face doesn't show it! The way she acts makes it feel like you can clearly see her being told what to do! "Look sad!" "Look happy!" "Look scared!"
Speaking of musicals, Emma Watson was originally going to play the role of Mia in La La Land. But instead they chose another Emma. In this case, Emma Stone. I wouldn't say Stone is one of the best actresses out there, but she is much better than Watson! In La La Land, she puts so much emotion into her performance! Like in that audition scene! Regardless of how stupid the scene is, the emotion in her face and voice is what makes it so incredible! No wonder she won best actress! Honestly, if Watson was cast as Mia, the movie wouldn't have won the amount of awards that it did. It probably wouldn't have even been nominated for best picture! Also, Emma Watson was in two movies this year! The second one being The Circle. The Circle was a much worse movie than Beauty and the Beast, but Emma's acting in it was slightly better than her performance in BATB. I'm not saying it was good. It was still pretty bad. But I was a little more pleased with it. She still gives a pretty bland performance though. But to be honest, the movie has bigger problems! I just can't stand that Emma doesn't want to show any emotion! She always has such bored expression on her face!
Emma Watson is one of the worst actresses in movie history! Acting takes a lot of dedication and effort. Emma puts absolutely no effort into her acting! I know a lot of people like her, but I don't. If you like her, I'm okay with that. I feel like this rant is going to make a lot of people hate me. But I'm just stating my honest opinion. I'm not trying to change your opinion. I don't like Emma Watson, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't like her. I mean, she's not as bad as Anna Kendrick! Speaking of Anna Kendrick, my next rant is gonna be about Pitch Perfect 3. Ugh.
She's not that bad in my opinion, but still respect your opinion - VideoGamefan5
I think you hit the nail in the head with her acting on Beauty and the Beast. - visitor
"Regardless of how stupid the scene is, the emotion in her face and voice is what makes it so incredible"
If you consider standing there, staring at the screen blankly "emotion" then...huh? - DCfnaf
The expressions she's making during the song show the emotion. It's the same way a lot of singers in musicals sing that kind of song. I'm not saying Emma Stone did it in the best way possible, but it felt natural. That's just my opinion though. - MegaSoulhero
Okay, I understand what you're saying. I just think that scene was idiotic and could've been done better. - DCfnaf
She didn't do good in the Harry Potter movies, and that's coming from someone who likes the movies. She had terrible singing in BATB and I'm not willing to see The Circle - visitor
She is beautiful & too young to be judge. You're talking about acting but not body language. - akashkumar
She's eh in Harry Potter. The only thing she's actually pretty good in is Perks of Being a Wallflower. - Elric-san
I haven't seen Perks of Being a Wallflower. - MegaSoulhero
She did good in Harry Potter and Perks of Being a wallflower but is ranked WAY too high on the list for sure. - visitor

She is Number 9 on best actresses. Yeah, no. She's not THAT talented guys. Looks =/= Talent. - DCfnaf
I like her actually but I respect your opinion - TwilightKitsune
So basically you don't like her but as a senior citizen, you don't want to criticize.. - akashkumar
I want to download an emma watson movie and photoshop all of the frames to have Tom Hanks' face and whenever she talks put a tom Hanks audio clip over her voice lol - visitor
shut up - StayAlive
Booty and the Peanut was one awful movie. - AlphaQ
Eh, more people like her because she does all of this humanitarian stuff (ex. doing some things for the UN) rather than her acting ability. At least that's why a fair amount of millenials like her. - Anonymousxcxc
She is not that terrible, in my opinion, but I respect your opinion. - Pokemonrules101
