Ryan Reynolds ( Berg on Two Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place) is an actor, comedian, producer, businessman, and social media star. Reynolds has starred in a wide range of films including Blade: Trinity, Green Lantern, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But how do you know which Ryan Reynolds movies are the best? You can’t just walk up to him and ask because that would be creepy and he’d probably say The Croods which is incorrect.
It’s a good thing you stumbled upon this movie website because I’m going to list the five best Ryan Reynolds movie right after I complete this sentence ready it’s about to end here comes the period.
5. Crazy, Stupid, Love
This movie stars Reynolds as a womanizer who helps a newly-divorced Michael Scott become a ladies man. I went to the theater to watch this movie because I thought this was about musical supergroup TLC’s CrazySexyCool album. I was wrong. Crazy, sexy, wrong.
4. La La Land
This movie shows off Reynolds’ musical ability and acting chops as he sings and dances his way through his desire to have a successful career and a successful romance with with Emma Stone. The range Reynolds displays in this movie is astounding. From playing the piano to singing to dancing to not even really looking like he does in other movies (must be the CGI), he really shines with Stone in the backdrop of a dreamy Los Angeles.
3. The Nice Guys
This movie partners Reynolds with Russell Crowe as a pair of 70’s crime fighters who search for a woman who has disappeared. This movie is similar to Reynolds’ other megahit film, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in that it teams up Reynolds with another Australian actor and also Reynolds doesn’t look like himself. Big shout out to the make-up/costuming department for that.
Reynolds is a mysterious getaway driver who teams up with a kickass white scorpion jacket to survive an unraveling crime caper. Surprisingly, Reynolds doesn’t say a lot in this movie and his trademark sarcasm and self-deprecating humor is missing. But he’s real intense (he shoots a lot of dudes and even stomps a guy’s head in) and drives real fast and again kind of looks different. Must be the jacket.
1. Blade Runner 2049
Reynolds teams up with Harrison Ford (Hollywood Homicide) to unravel the mystery about androids and human society. Again, Reynolds is able to disappear into his character in this visually stunning movie. Like, suspiciously doesn’t even look like himself. I think it’s one of those newfangled deepfake things I’ve been hearing about because he looks like a totally different guy! CGI these days is just incredible and has a come a long way since R.I.P.D.
Congratulations on reading another Cinema Listed dot com list! Big thank you to Ryan Reynolds for being in at least five movies or else I would’ve had to edit the title of this article!
I hope you all watch Free Guy in theaters or when it inevitably arrives on your favorite streaming platform (Crackle). Or just watch this video of Ryan Reynolds screaming a bunch:
