My Top Ten Michael Douglas Movies

Happy (early) Birthday to Michael Douglas, who turns 72 on Sunday.

Recently, I watched & reviewed Paths Of Glory for my (pretty much dead) IMDB Top 250 Project. I’ve just been lazy on doing those – I’ll get back to it at some point. Anyway, I realized that it was the first and only film I’ve ever seen starring Michael’s father Kirk Douglas. How pathetic is that?! I’m a poor excuse for a movie blogger. But, hey – I realized that I’ve seen a lot of his son’s films! So, there you go – that’s why I decided to do this list. That’s a good enough reason, right??? 😉

I’ve also noticed that Kirk Douglas will turn 100 on December 9th. Wow! I’ll finally watch Spartacus in honor of that. 🙂

So, in the meantime, here are My Top Ten Michael (not Kirk) Douglas Movies, counting down to my favorite movie (not role):

(I’ve seen 13) 😉

13. Don’t Say A Word
12. Disclosure
11. A Perfect Murder

Top Ten

10. Basic Instinct

9. Coma

8. Wall Street

7. The War Of The Roses

6. Chorus Line

5. Romancing The Stone & The Jewel Of The Nile (I could really do with re-watching these, though)

4. Ant-Man

3. The Game

2. Falling Down

1. Fatal Attraction

  1. I thought he was great as Liberace. I think Kirk is one of the best actors ever!!! Particularly in Champion, Spartacus and as Van Gogh in Lust for Life, also as Doc in Gunfight at the Ok Corral.

  2. wow mutant, u’ve never seen any kirk douglas movies??? I’m in shock. Check out 7 days in May (1964) and of course Spartacus (1960) like u suggested!

    nice job as always

  3. I’m not a fan of 1 or 10. But I LOVE the actor. I don’t think he has ever given a bad performance. He gives it 100% even when he does ‘bad’ movies. He doesn’t know how not to do his best at everything he is in. Not like some people who seem to have phoned in some of their roles.

  5. Wonder Boys would probably be my number one, I love that little film. 🙂 He is a great actor, never really noticed that. Romancing the Stone and The Jewel of Nile were my big favourites when I was younger. I actually rewatched the first few weeks ago and I still enjoyed it.

    • I should watch Wonder Boys – not seen that one. : ) I so need to re-watch those! I put them on the list for nostalgia but it’s been so long since I saw them that I have to admit I remember very little.
