All of those remakes from last week couldn't stand up to the ultimate power of '80's nostalgia - the Lego maniacs. (Hell, I wanted to go see THE LEGO MOVIE for Valentine's Day and it was awesome!) Now that the romantic weekend has passed, will there be room for the other weak February releases, including POMPEII. Will the '90's nostalgia for one of that movie's stars help push its ticket sales? Why don't we discuss her hotness instead.
Back in the early '90's, Carrie-Anne Moss was another aspiring actress on Canadian television. The weird thing is, 6 years prior to breaking out in the 1999 movie THE MATRIX, she was on a Canadian TV program called... you guessed it, "Matrix." Her career was just as illustrious with roles in B level action movies (Corbin Bernsen, Billy Zane and Jeff Fahey as co-stars, anyone??) before hooking up with Keanu and crew.
Many hailed the choice to have Moss be the lead female in the groundbreaking F/X movie, citing that she wasn't just another cookie cutter blonde with model looks. I could see how Carrie-Anne's athletic build and striking coloring (dark hair, ice blue eyes) would work within the context of that movie but I didn't think that she'd be very successful outside of it.
That prediction has been fairly accurate. When in MATRIX movies, people have swooned over CAM. In other flicks such as THE CHUMCRUBBER, MINI'S FIRST TIME or SNOW CAKE, she hasn't exactly garnered the same audience love. Whether that's a statement on her casting choices, her acting talent or her looks, I'm not sure. I just have never understood her appeal in any of those categories. Sure, Carrie-Anne is fit and she was a good casting choice for THE MATRIX but outside of that, I don't find her to be anything unique or special.
What do you think of Carrie-Ann Moss?
