Toben and Vanessa

Join co-hosts Vanessa and Toben on a quest that began with one of the most pressing cinematic questions of our time: what's the best movie Blake Lively's ever been in? During volume one of this series, they will watch - in chronological order - every major motion picture featuring the actress Blake Lively. At the end of each episode, an updated ranking of Blake Lively movies will be determined.

Clouds of Sils Maria
Valentine is the personal assistant to Maria Enders, an actress traveling to accept an award on behalf of reclusive playwright Wilhelm Melchior, whose play was Enders’ breakout role. En route to Zurich, Valentine and Maria get word that Wilhelm has died. While at the award ceremony-turned-memorial, Valentine convinces Maria to meet with a director about returning to the play that made her famous. Over the next several weeks, Valentine helps Maria prepare for the role, running lines and exchanging ideas about the themes and meaning of the play. Their perspectives differ on many things, including the potential of the actress set to play the role a younger Maria once did. One day, while on a hike, Valentine and Maria are arguing once more over the play and interpretations of it… then Valentine vanishes, never to be seen by Maria again.

Cole is a new guard at Guantanamo Bay. On her first day, she gets punched in the face by a detainee. One day, while on library duty, she meets Ali – a man who’s been detained at Gitmo for eight years and just wants to read the last Harry Potter book. After their literary discussion turns sour, Cole receives a fecal cocktail from Ali. Despite this, the two eventually develop a mutual respect for each other and connect emotionally. As Cole nears the end of her deployment, Ali shares with her his fear that he will never be free and never have a home again. In Ali’s moment of despair, as he considers killing himself, Cole urges him to hold on to even the smallest amount of hope, before letting him decide his own fate. Ali chooses to live, and shares a moment of affection with Cole before they part ways. As a parting gift, Cole finds the final Harry Potter book for Ali, leaving him a note inside: “I don’t know if Snape’s a good guy. But I know you are.”

On the Road (2012)
Marylou is chill 16 year old bride who knows how to roll her own joints. She’s married to Dean, an adult man, who apparently taught her how to roll joints. One day, Dean leaves for Denver and takes a mistress. A year or so later, she’s still kind of with Dean, and travels with him to visit their friend Sal for Thanksgiving in North Carolina. Soon they’re all on the road together, heading to New York City to ring in the new year of 1949. Around this time, Marylou hooks with Sal, but everyone’s cool with it as Dean is pretty clearly into open relationships. Marylou, Dean, and Sal hit the road once more, this time bound for San Francisco – with a short detour to return a husband to his wife on Louisiana. As they head west, Marylou worries Dean will leave her once they arrive in San Francisco. She also reveals her desire to settle down and have a child, which she may do with her fiancé back in Denver. Dean does totally immediately take off as soon they arrive in San Francisco, and after sharing a hotel room with Sal,  Marylou declares that being on the road is no longer for her and heads to Denver to start fresh and marry her sailor fiancé.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

Snow White is a little princess whose life is turned upside down when her father, the king, is murdered by the villainous beauty Ravenna. Imprisoned for years in the north tower of the same castle that she had grown up in, Snow White now spends her days praying alone. One day, a new prisoner arrives with word that there are still people on the outside loyal to Snow White’s family. With this information, Snow White soon escapes in search of aid to retake the kingdom. After tripping on mushroom dust in the dark forest, Snow White is captured by a Huntsman hired by the evil queen to return her. Thanks to the mercy of the Huntsman, Snow White is spared – and she convinces him to help her find the loyalist army. When a troll nearly eats them both, Snow White discovers she has the power to calm wild creatures. When a brief rest at a small village is interrupted by the queen’s men, Snow White and the Huntsman once again are forced to flee, but soon finding themselves captured by a group of dwarves. Fortunately, the dwarves are no friends to the queen and they take up Snow White’s cause. On the journey, Snow White is reunited with her childhood friend William, who carries the guilt of leaving her behind years ago. One day, whilst in the forest, Snow White is tricked by a shape-shifting Ravenna into eating a poisoned apple and seemingly dies. But upon being brought to the castle of the loyalist forces and receiving a kiss from the Huntsman, Snow White is revived and ready to lead an attack on Ravenna. After the dwarves help open the gates to Ravenna’s castle, Snow White finally delivers justice at the end of a sword. With the kingdom retaken and life restored to the land, Snow White takes her seat on the throne.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011)

Bella Swan is cool, chill bride-to-be, eagerly awaiting her upcoming big day when she’ll get married to Edward and/or become a vampire. Despite revelations that Edward is a murderer, Bella is still gun-ho for the wedding … which is happening right now, apparently! They’re married now! 
At the reception, Bella meets the vampire cousins from Alaska before undergoing a barrage of speeches and a surprise visit from Jacob, who is cool for like 5 minutes before getting weird and protective about Bella’s safety during the upcoming “marital rights” time. After the wedding, Bella and Edward jet off to Rio, then to a secluded island, where they swim underneath the moonlight before engaging in sexual congress for the first time. Following the best night of their lives, Bella and Edward share an awkward conversation about bedroom boundaries before figuring out their rhythm. Before you know it, Bella is pregnant – to the surprise and concern of everyone. As the first known human mother of a vampire, Bella’s life is in grave danger due to the rapid growth of child inside her.
As the pregnancy progresses, Bella learns that she will not live to see her baby… unless… she feeds her baby human blood. A pint or 12 of blood through a straw seems to help Bella recover from being at death’s door, though she still looks like she could use a burger. But tragedy soon strikes when a contraction snaps Bella’s back and sends her into labor. While the baby is successfully delivered, thanks to some improvisation by Edward, Bella does not weather the storm…
except she totally comes back to life thanks to an injection of Edward’s venom! She’s finally a vampire, just like she always dreamed of being.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

Bella Swan, a prospective University of Alaska student, is still in high school and her 100 year old vampire boyfriend Edward wants to marry her. Bella’s pretty cold to that idea, though, as she doesn’t believe marriage is worth any more than the piece of paper the marriage certificate is printed on. Also, she’d rather just be a cool, immortal vampire. With graduation coming up quick, Bella finds her attention divided between her studies, Edward, and visiting her mom in Florida. Bella is also being targeted by a vengeful lady vampire, but she’ll worry about that after she straightens things up with her estranged wolfman friend Jacob. This proves challenging as Jacob’s enmity toward vampires has grown stronger and he’s really getting pushy about the whole “Bella, don’t become a vampire before you’ve considered all the alternatives” thing. Soon, though, Bella brings the vampire and werewolf clans of Forks, Washington, into an uneasy alliance based on all the trouble she’s at the center of. With the vampires busy tracking an unknown threat and keeping watch for the vengeful lady vampire, Bella is left under the protection of Jacob and his wolf buds. This breaks bad pretty quickly, though, when Jacob decides Bella has no agency in her relationship with Edward and forces a kiss upon her in an effort to convince her of his love for her. After breaking her fist on Jacob’s face, Bella returns home and continues planning her eventual vampiric transition. During a graduation party, she kind  reconciles with Jacob but is soon distracted by a warning of an impending invasion of newborn vampires. With only days to prepare, Bella takes stock of her priorities and, after a heart to heart with dad about marriage, reconsiders Edward’s proposal. On the day of the big battle, Bella is whisked away to the top of a mountain for safety… but almost freezes to death because no one thought about how cold the top of a mountain might be. After some life-saving cuddles from Jacob, Bella finds herself facing down death again when the vengeful lady vampire arrives. A well-timed distraction by Bella turns the tide of the battle, ending the threat to Bella and her friends…for now.

Welcome to the Rileys (2010)
“Mallory” is a moody runaway teen from Florida who hates cops and works as a dancer in New Orleans. One night at work, she strikes up a conversation with a middle aged man named Doug Riley, who is trying to avoid his coworkers at a business convention. After a brief misunderstanding about his line of work, the two strike up an unlikely friendship and bond over marijuana and home renovation. They hang out a lot because Doug doesn’t like being alone and Mallory doesn’t have any authoritative adult influences in her life. Soon Doug becomes a boarder at Mallory’s home. After several days of sharing life experiences and learning from each other, Doug’s wife shows up…and is surprisingly calm about the whole situation. In fact, she temporarily moves in with them and they have a whole little family situation. As Mallory feels more pressure from the Rileys to accept more responsibility for her life, the living situation reaches its boiling point – ultimately dismantling the found family unit.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)
Bella Swan is back, and it’s her birthday! Now a moody 18 year old, Bella is worried of aging out of her relationship with Edward the vampire. One night, Bella gets a paper cut in front of a whole family of vampires and almost gets eaten. This incident spooks Edward and he decides Bella would be safer and better off without him and his vampire family around. Bella is heartbroken by this, and decides to lay down in the forest and die. Fortunately, she’s saved by a cool shirtless dude who’s definitely not a werewolf. For months after, Bella is a wreck, isolating herself and wallowing in her loneliness. One day, she discovers that engaging in social activities with friends makes her less sad and lonely, so does that for a while… until she crosses paths with a dangerous motorcyclist and is warned off by a vision of Edward. In an effort to glimpse her lost love, Bella gets into extreme sports like cliff diving and dirt biking. This works for a while, but eventually she no longer craves the sight of Edward because of her growing relationship with Jacob – a friend who is a boy and a mechanic and a werewolf. Bella’s not really sure if she’s ready to love again, but after having her life saved by a pack of werewolves, she warms up to the idea a bit… until Edward’s sister returns and takes Bella to Rome, so she can stop Edward from killing himself because thinks another vampire killed Bella. Bella and Edward are finally reunited, then almost immediately nearly killed by the vampire council, because it turns out Bella is immune to the magic powers of the vampire council and they don’t like that. The council is appeased by a last minute announcement – Bella will be turned into a vampire and join Edward’s family. This decision is complicated by two key issues – Edward doesn’t really want Bella to become a vampire despite her repeated stated desire to be turned, and her becoming a vampire will also reignite a war between the vampires and werewolves of Washington state. Eventually, Edward agrees to turn Bella… on one condition…
