My Top Ten Jeff Bridges Movies

Happy Birthday (tomorrow) to Jeff Bridges, who will turn 72. But I don’t post on weekends usually, so here we are a day early!

I really like Jeff Bridges. I think most people do? This is an interesting list as several of his biggest films aren’t included. That’s because I’ve either never seen them at all or I just really need to rewatch them, such as Starman. So I’ve listed those at the end. People will also probably roll their eyes at my number one choice but, hey, I like what I like!

I rank these lists based on how much I like the movie itself, not on the performance. He’s always good, though. Thought he was especially good in Crazy Heart.

I’ve seen quite a few so I’ll rank them all. Here are My Top Ten Jeff Bridges Movies, counting down to my favorite & including all I’ve seen & remember well:

  1. Great list! Bad Times At The El Royale and Hell Or High Water have been on my watchlist for some time. But I’m coming up on about a month off from teaching, so I’m hoping to catch up on my not-horror viewing

  2. I looooove Bad Times but I’m sure that’s just me. The Last Unicorn has failed to make my radar for some reason.. hmmm…

    You know what I remember about Against All Odds?


  3. Great list! There are still a bunch I haven’t seen but he’s such a terrific actor, I think Hell & High Water is such an excellent movie. I enjoyed him even in so-so movies like TRON. Haven’t even heard of The Last Unicorn, I have to look that up!

  4. Aw, happy birthday to The Dude. Very pleased to hear a couple of months back that his cancer was in remission.

    I LOVE your first choice. I’ve loved, loved, loved The Last Unicorn ever since I was little. It’s visually stunning, has a wonderful, expressive voice cast and America’s music is just lovely.

    I really enjoyed Starman. I definitely need to rewatch it too.

    • Hi. Happy very belated New Year! Hope your 2022 is going well so far? 😊 I’ve not been around as things aren’t great but still feel super guilty at not replying to blog comments in so long. 😭 Glad to hear from another fan of The Last Unicorn! I only saw it for the first time a few years ago or so but I loved it. Has a great animation style. Not sure why I’d never seen it or even heard of it before then. Should be more well known…
