The Em's have it ....

Popular names do go in cycles, is it any wonder we have young actresses with variations of the EM? Some might remember the onset of the three named actresses, admittedly its still confusing to note the Mary Beth, Jo Beth, Mary Louise, Mary Stuart variations. Today let's honor the newer stream of  possibly confusing Em's;
Emily Blunt is the one from;
 "Sunshine Cleaning" (2008) - Sisters try to succeed, despite their own inner personal issues, cleaning up crime scenes. Good performance by Blunt as well as Amy Adams. The stand out is Clifton Collins, jr. 

Emily Browning is the one from;
 "A Series of Unfortunate Events" (2004) - Not a bad adaptation of the first 3 Lemony Snicket tales, which in this case means books....Emily Browning does personify the character of Violet. She looks like and carries a mysterious intelligence as the character was written. Can't wait to see her in "Sucker Punch" (2011) & "Sleeping Beauty" (2011)!! 

Emma Watson is just so Hermoine;

"Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone" (2001) - A terrific if not perfect adaptation of the first Harry Potter tome. The books are way better than the films, although you don't have to have read anything to appreciate the fun adventure of the movies. 

Emma Stone is the one from; 
 "Zombieland" (2009) - Adorable yet slightly unusual, Emma Stone works strongly against the fun smirky Woody Harrelson and the up and coming cutie personality of Jesse Eisenberg.

Emma Roberts is the daughter of Eric and niece of Julia;

"Nancy Drew" (2007) -  A cheesy / cutesy version of the amateur detective series, this Emma is almost too picture perfect. Not a horrible film but doesn't 'catch' your attention and make you want more. Plus they cast her too young - preteens and tweenyboppers want someone to look up to- Now at age 19, she might be a better version.
