Happy Birthday To Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock), who turns 47 today.
I have to admit that I’m only a recent fan of The Rock. I don’t watch wrestling so didn’t really notice him until he became a big blockbuster movie star (I’m not talking about shit like Tooth Fairy). Also, he seems so sweet & likable on Twitter, etc. I like an actor who doesn’t seem like a dick in real life! Mostly, though, I’ve become a bit of a fan thanks to my daughter. She loves The Rock! Which means I’ve seen a lot of his movies that I otherwise may not have bothered to watch. I think it’s adorable that she likes him. Just like Arnold Schwarzenegger for my generation, The Rock is the big action star for her generation.
There’s still a lot I haven’t seen, though, as he’s done so many of the types of movies that aren’t really my thing (Fast & Furious, etc). I’ve listed all I’ve not seen at the end. So, at the moment, my “Top Ten” is a cheat as I’ve only seen nine. Oh well. I can add to this list later. I’ll definitely be watching the next Jumanji movie (loved the last one).
So for now, these are My Top Ten (nine…) Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Movies, counting down to my favorite:
9. Baywatch (Good god this was horrible! You know it’s bad when it’s lower than Tooth Fairy. And, no – the kid hasn’t seen this one.)
8. Tooth Fairy
6. San Andreas
2. Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Movies I’ve Not Yet Seen:
Longshot, The Mummy Returns, The Scorpion King, Welcome To The Jungle, Walking Tall, Doom, Be Cool, Gridiron Gang, Southland Tales, The Game Plan, Get Smart, Planet 51, Why Did I Get Married Too?, The Other Guys, Faster, Fast & Furious 5 & 6 & 7 & 8, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Empire State, Pain & Gain, Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Hercules, Jem And The Holograms, Central Intelligence
Yes! You just can’t beat a Dwayne Johnson action flick. You might not be in for a masterpiece but you’re guaranteed a good time. Moana would be my #1 pick, too.
I don’t think anyone hates The Rock. He’s so likeable. 🙂
Pain and Gain is pretty decent.
I’ll watch it at some point (once the kid is asleep). She’s very annoyed that I won’t let her watch all of The Rock’s films since some are rated 15. Lol (I kind of secretly hope she’ll soon find ways to sneakily watch movies the way I did with things like A Nightmare On Elm Street when I was about 12). 😉
When it comes to charisma, you can rely on The Rock to “Just Brings it!”
Definitely! The guy has loads of charisma. 🙂
