My Top Ten Ryan Gosling Movies

Happy Birthday to Ryan Gosling, who turns 35 today! πŸ™‚

Sorry, Ryan Gosling – I’ve totally gone off you. Wait… That sounded rude. It was a bit like “Happy Birthday! I hate you.” πŸ˜‰

No, I don’t hate Ryan Gosling – I was a big fan of his for a little while back in his Drive days (waaaay back in 2011). I even started a little Ryan Gosling Project where I was going to attempt to watch every film he’s been in. Well, I didn’t get very far with that. I got bored and, after the horrible reviews for Only God Forgives (which I still haven’t seen), I kind of abandoned the project before I’d even started it.

I do think Gosling has displayed some pretty good acting skills in some of the lesser known films below, such as Half Nelson, so it’s a shame that not many people will have seen him in things beyond The Notebook & Drive. I’d really like to see him in a good movie again soon because, when a role is right for him, I think he does a good job & has a charisma about him that not all actors have.

So here are My Top Ten Ryan Gosling Movies (ranked by movie, not performance) counting down to my favorite:

10. Murder By Numbers

9. The Ides Of March

8. Crazy, Stupid, Love.

7. The Notebook

6. All Good Things

5. Half Nelson

4. The Place Beyond The Pines

3. Blue Valentine

2. Drive

1. Lars And The Real Girl

**FYI – I don’t even remember Murder By Numbers so maybe that would rank higher on a re-watch. As for The Notebook, it’s an extremely flawed film that makes me want to gag half the time. But, screw it – kissing in the rain is sexy.

The Films I’ve Not Seen (there aren’t a lot – maybe I should attempt my Ryan Gosling Project again):

Frankenstein And Me
The Unbelievables
Remember The Titans
The Believer
The Slaughter Rule
The United States Of Leland
Stay
Fracture
Gangster Squad
Only God Forgives
