My Top Ten Robert Duvall Movies

Happy Birthday to Robert Duvall, who turns 86 today!

Robert Duvall has been in a lot of big films but he seems to be an actor who is often overlooked. To be fair, when I decided to do this Top Ten after watching THX 1138, I couldn’t have instantly named all the movies he’s been in & was like “Oh yeah – he was in that one too!” when looking him up at IMDB & seeing his full list of films. I think some of the films in this list are overlooked as well (I actually really like Falling Down, Colors & Deep Impact, which is why I have them fairly high & will probably be moaned at for having them above a couple of classics). 😉

As always, I’ve ranked these according to how much I personally like these movies (Not according to Duvall’s individual performances in each. But he’s good in them all!). Here are My Top Ten Robert Duvall Movies:

10. Network

9. Apocalypse Now

8. Crazy Heart

7. Deep Impact

6. Colors

5. Falling Down

4. To Kill A Mockingbird

3. THX 1138

2. The Godfather: Part II

1. The Godfather

The Rest That I’ve Seen:
Days Of Thunder
Four Christmases
Phenomenon
Gone In 60 Seconds

Saw These But No Longer Remember Them (sorry!):
The Natural
The Paper
M.A.S.H.

I Like These But His Role Was Uncredited (so I didn’t count them):
The Conversation
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers

A Few Big Ones I’ve Not Seen:
Bullitt
True Grit
The Apostle
The Road

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) 😉
