My Top Ten Kirsten Dunst Movies

Happy 36th Birthday (soon) to Kirsten Dunst.

Her birthday is next Monday but, since I’m watching that Avengers: Infinity War thingy tonight, I figured I better leave Monday free to review that instead. Sorry, Kirsten! You’ve been bumped by the Avengers! Hmm. I’d like to be bumped by Thor.

I like Dunst okay. I wouldn’t say she’s ever been a favorite of mine but she’s a decent actor and I wouldn’t avoid a film if she’s in it. But not that many actors make me avoid films (other than Gwyneth Paltrow, of course).

So here are My Top Ten Kirsten Dunst Movies, counting down to my favorite and ranked by film instead of performance. And including everything I’ve seen. Oh! And I’m kind of cheating again by including animated movies she has provided her voice for so, like with Saoirse Ronan, I can include my beloved Studio Ghibli. πŸ˜‰

The Rest:

18. Small Soldiers
17. Elizabethtown
16. The Beguiled
15. Mona Lisa Smile
14. Crazy/Beautiful
13. Wimbledon
12. Bring It On
11. All Good Things

Top Ten:

10. TIE: Interview With The Vampire & Hidden Figures

9. Marie Antoinette

7. The Spider-Man Movies

6. Jumanji

  1. How can Elizabethtown be so low? That’s one of my all-time favorites! Love Jumanji, Kiki, Anastasia, and Spider-Man too, while Eternal Sunshine is one of my Blindspots this year. Upside Down was pretty cool as well, at least on a visual level.

    • I did actually like Elizabethtown but think we’re in the minority on that! Upside Down does look intriguing – I’ll probably watch that sometime. Hope you like Eternal Sunshine! πŸ™‚ I think you might…?

  2. I love Kirsten and I have since I was a kid. I still haven’t seen Marie Antionette. My favorite performances of hers are The Virgin Suicides, Drop Dead Gorgeous, and Crazy/Beautiful.

  3. I’ve had a crush of Kirsten Dunst since about Jumanji (it’s ok, I was younger than her when it came out! Well, I still am younger than her, that’s how time works, but I mean I saw it when I was younger than she is in it. Phew!) Anyway, I’m not sure how many of her movies I’ve actually seen. I’d definitely put the first two Spider-Mans and Interview with the Vampire at the top end of the list, anyway. And Bring It On, which I mainly remember for the DVD special features where the (male) director justifies making a cheerleading movie by going on and on about how it’s for “horny guys”.

    • I know what you mean. Lol. πŸ˜‰ I did a list of movie/TV crushes once and had people like Ricky Schroder on it and someone freaked out at me in the comments like I liked him at my current age at the age when he was on TV. Like, duh – he’s actually older than me and I had a huge crush on him when I was, like, ten. πŸ™„ The only inappropriate person seems to be the director of Bring It On from those comments! Wow. Perv. I could do with seeing Interview With The Vampire again…
