Need to know which Anna Kendrick movie got the best reviews from critics and audiences? Well you have come to the right place….because we have all of that information.

The other day my oldest daughter, Katelyn, suggested that it might be a good idea to write a Ultimate Movie Rankings page on somebody that younger readers might actually know.   It seems that my most recent movie subjects, Oliva de Havilland and Norma Shearer, do not really generate much conversation among her friends and college classmates.  So following her suggestion, I have decided to write a movie page on somebody that was not only born in the 1980s but a star on the rise…..not to mention my daughter’s favorite actress.

Anna Kendrick (1985-) is an American, Oscar® nominated actress.   Her IMDb page shows 37 acting credits since 2003.  This page will rank most of her movies from Best to Worst.  Cameos, television appearances, direct to home entertainment videos and shorts were not included in the rankings.  Her remaining 19 movies are ranked by 5 different sortable columns of information.
