A Monster Calls goes into wide release tomorrow after opening in limited release in December, and Rotten Tomatoes is taking a look back at one of its stars, Sigourney Weaver. Here are her top 10 highest rated movies on the site:
5. Galaxy Quest—90%
7. The Year Of Living Dangerously—89%
8. Cedar Rapids—86%
9. Death And The Maiden—84%
10. Working Girl—84%
Probably my favorite living American actress. Should have already got at least two Oscars (one of them for Aliens without a question). And her performance in Galaxy Quest deserved Comedy/Musical GG win (sorry Janet!).
I nominate her for:
Gorillas in the Mist: The Story of Dian Fossey
The Ice Storm
Death and the Maiden
A Map of the World
The TV Set
Looking at Sasha’s list I would add Dave (1993).
I love her in HEARTBREAKERS. Guilty pleasure i know!
I say Working Girl should’ve been her one Oscar, though I hardly would’ve minded an Aliens victory. (I just happen to ever-so-slightly prefer Kathleen Turner that year.)
