A Movie Ranking: Josh Brolin

Josh Brolin is an actor I’ve just met over the recent years but he has clearly ascended to becoming one of my favorite actors for his work in a variety of films. Today, I thought it would be perfect to highlight him for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!

9. Everest

Everest (2015)

As someone who binge-watched all three seasons of the thrilling reality television series on Discovery Channel, Everest: Beyond the Limit, this movie was rather boring in comparison.

8. The Goonies

The Goonies (1985)

I watched The Goonies once. I wasn’t a fan. (One thing I didn’t know. Josh Brolin was in it. Wow!)

7. Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Sicario was great. Its sequel, not so much.

6. Men in Black III

Seven years ago I went to see Men in Black III with my family in the movie theaters. At the time I had no idea who Josh Brolin was. Now, after my recent viewing watching the film, I was impressed by Brolin’s incredible impression of Tommy Lee Jones.

5. Sicario

Sicario is an amazing film. From the directing to the music to the cinematography, and of course the acting, Sicario is a movie that you won’t soon forget. And, naturally, Josh Brolin’s character Matt Graver manages to stand out.

4. Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame is a remarkable movie, clearly. There’s a reason why it’s the highest-grossing film of all time. However, while Josh Brolin still manages to steal the show, the character of Thanos is greatly watered down as opposed to his role in Infinity War.

3. Labor Day

Talk about a romantic movie that’ll have you riveted. Labor Day is SO GOOD!!! If you’ve never seen it, please watch it. It’s worth it.

2. Avengers: Infinity War

Josh Brolin killed it is Thanos. It’s rare to be scared of a villain immediately but the writers made sure to let us know that Thanos was no joke, instantly. Josh Brolin, through the purple skin and CGI, brought an authenticity to the character that made him feel genuinely powerful yet…human. From a certain point of view, one can actually understand Thanos’ intentions, that is until he kills the heroes we love.

Josh Brolin is undoubtedly one of the best comic-book villains of all time.

1. No Country for Old Men

No Country for Old Men is my favorite movie of all time. No doubt about it. The dark storytelling, the continuous plot twists, and that ending. Woo. I wasn’t ready but I’m so glad I watched this.

So, this is my movie ranking featuring Josh Brolin. I can’t wait to share with you my next movie ranking next week. It should be fun.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
