No. 8 I, Robot

Original Release Date:July 16, 2004

InI, Robot,Will Smith plays Detective Del Spooner. The sci-fi movie follows a near-future world where robots are part of our everyday lives. But, you know how it goes, one should never trust robots. Leave it Smith, though, to save the day! The movie also stars Alan Tudyk, Shia LaBeouf, Bruce Greenwood, and others. Nowadays, this is a tired plot, but back in 2004, a sci-fi plot like this was pretty unique and highly entertaining. Robots taking over? Yes, please!

No. 7 Bad Boys

Original Release Date:April 7, 1995

InBad Boys,Will Smith plays Mike Lowrey, a Miami cop who witness $100 million worth of heroin get stolen by a gang.

No. 6 I Am Legend

Original Release Date:December 14, 2007

At this point, who hasn’t watchedI Am Legend? But just in case you haven’t, it’s another post-apocalyptic thriller. Smith plays Robert, the last man on Earth (or so he thinks) trying to find a cure to a vampiric plague that has wiped out humanity. The movie also stars Alice Baga, Charlie Tahan, and others.

Despite its relatively low scores from both critics and fans, the movie still holds up and earned more praise and a larger audience in time. The movie is still thrilling and never fails to spook viewers, no matter how many times you’ve seen it. There’s just something about the mystery of it all and how, for the majority of the movie, we only follow on character.

No. 5 Enemy of the State

Original Release Date:November 20, 1998

In this movie, Will Smith plays Robert Clayton, an attorney who is also a devoted husband and father. His innocent role makes him the perfect person to frame for murder, but will he realize this before it’s too late?Enemy of the Stateis one entertaining and fun thrill ride.

Audience immediately love Smith’s character and feel themselves going along for the ride to prove his innocence.

No. 4Six Degrees of Separation

Original Release Date:December 10, 1993

This is a role you may not be used to seeing Will Smith takes on. But as we’ve mentioned, the actor can rock any challenge. InSix Degrees of Desperation,Smith plays Paul, a savvy conartist who takes advantage of the rich. The movie also stars Ian McKellen, Donald Sutherland, Mary Beth Hurt, and Bruce Davison.

Simply the Best:Will Smith as a conartist in this R-rated film? Sign us up! The movie was clearly not appreciated back in the 90s and was underrated.Six Degrees of Desperationdid a lot better when it was released on DVD. Check it out if you haven’t already.

No. 3 The Pursuit of Happyness

Original Release Date:December 15, 2006

InThe Pursuit of Happyness,Will Smith takes on the role of Chris, a struggling single father trying to make ends meet. When Chris lands a promising job, their hardships don’t end as they go from shelter to shelter in hopes of a better life. The movie also stars Jaden Smith, Thandie Newton, and Brian Howe.

Will Smith is no stranger to premiering in movies around Christmas time, when audiences are more vulnerable to inspirational movies and tugging at heartstrings. If you haven’t watchedThe Pursuit of Happynessand are considering it, be prepared to cry! This isn’t to say the movie is simply a depressing one, it’s a lot more than that. You will be left feeling motivated and inspired.

No. 2 Men in Black

Original Release Date:July 2, 1997

I don’t think I need to explain whyMen in Black is easily in Will Smith’s Top 3. It is the most recognizable and known role (after Fresh Prince, of course).It’s funny that despite nearly all the roles on this list being more on the drama side for Will Smith, his No. 2 movie (in our humble opinion) is J inMen in Black, a comedy. What can I say? It’s a great one. So great, that the movieinspired a cartoon series, live action show, and a movie franchise. Not to mention, a reboot/sequel.

No. 1 King Richard

Yes,King Richardis our favorite Will Smith movie. Smith’s performance as King is emotional, empowering, and motivational. And Smith’s Academy Award speech really reached into our feelings. The movie is streaming on HBO Max in case you missed it!

Many 90s movie villains were charming as well as terrifying.

The '90s were an interesting time for cinema.. The most popular blockbusters of the decade largely revolved around three concepts: monsters, disasters, and outer space.. A few reviewers criticized Cruel Intentions for its "uneven performances and uninspired script," but Roger Ebert praised the film for being "smart and merciless in the tradition of the original story.". In fact, Bean was in the running to play James Bond before his role was altered.. The Austin Powers franchise is the brainchild of Mike Myers, who plays both the titular protagonist and his nemesis, Dr.. Evil.. Rickman went on to win the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor.. At the end of Primal Fear , the mild-mannered Aaron Stampler is shown to be the alter ego, making the violent Roy his real personality.. Cape Fear earned Robert De Niro his fifth nomination for Best Actor at both the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes.

Why watch one when you can watch three? Empire has the definitive guide to the best trilogies out there, including Back to the Future and The Lord of The Rings.

Fun fact: The Silence of the Lambs is one of only three films ever to win all "Big Five" Oscars: Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Actress.. Fun fact: At one point, Kenneth Branagh was set to be the bad guy in Mission: Impossible III, but dropped out when delays caused the film to conflict with his own film, As You Like It.. What's nice is that the Swedes got a head-start on this, finishing their film trilogy while the English-speaking world was still waiting for the translation of the third book - and it's currently quite hard to imagine how David Fincher's film can measure up.. The first film is the best of these, but filmed back-to-back and with exceptional unity of style, they've set a very high bar for future adaptations of the series.. Perhaps The Girl Who Played With Fire, which doesn't quite have the impact of the first film or the nicely rounded ending of the third.. Originally paired only with Kris Kristofferson's equally gruff tech-guy, the series opened out to include del Toro's "Blood Pack" in the second film and the third film's Nightstalkers - which, it's fair to say, had mixed results.. The first Matrix film was one of those films, like Star Wars, that seems to change cinema overnight.. The second film's freeway chase scene, and the third film's attack on Zion, remain benchmarks for big action, and whether you like or loathe the Architect or the ending, the scale of the undertaking is still impressive.. Fun fact: That bench the Oracle is sitting on at the end of the third film?. After all, Raiders is pretty much a perfect film in every way; Temple of Doom is an impressively dark film and Last Crusade is (arguably) the funniest of the three and had Sean Connery and River Phoenix as a bonus.. The release of the first Toy Story film was anticipated chiefly from a technological point of view, as the first entirely computer-animated film ever made.. Peter Jackson's stunning trilogy, filmed back-to-back and released in the form of Christmas presents for three consecutive years, just pipped Star Wars to the top of the poll.
