Mark Ruffalo’s 10 Best Movies

Mark Ruffalo

Mark Ruffalo has quietly put together one of the best resumes of any actor out there.  He hasn’t just been in really good movies (which he has); he has been in some of the best movies made in the last 15 years.  I would easily put both Zodiac and Spotlight on that list, The Brothers Bloom is and underrated classic, and Eternal Sunshine and Collateral are also both “perfect 10” films.  That’s before you get to his contribution to the massive ensemble of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, stepping in for the fired Edward Norton and making the Hulk his own.  He has great range and his characters have in common an earnestness to their own personal sense of what’s just or fair.  He’s not flashy, he wouldn’t even be well-known without the MCU, but you’re lucky if he’s in your movie.

My Favorite Ruffalo Scene:
“They Knew! And They Let It Happen To Kids” from Spotlight (2014)

Next Film: Ruffalo is attached to a TV series adaptation of Wally Lamb’s novel I Know This Much Is True.  He’s also working on a biopic of 60 Minutes producer Don Hewitt entitled Newsflash and a post-9/11 drama with Amy Adams entitled The True American.  Though it isn’t on his official filmography yet, I assume we’ll see him back in May 2019 for Avengers 4.
