Pattinson is not just the Twilight guy anymore. ‘The Batman’ directed by Matt Reeves featuring Robert Pattinson is all set for release. Beyond his initial impression on audiences, Pattinson has overcome plenty of challenges to become the established, serious actor he is today. Here are our top picks for Robert Pattinson’s 5 best movies, in recognition of his ever-expanding and impressive record.
The Twilight Saga
The majority of viewers’ understanding of Pattinson’s skill set is based on the familiarity of the “Twilight” trilogy, which is still his most prominent and lucrative project to date. Regardless of how much the series’ quality deteriorated with each edition, Pattinson’s performance in the series is, frankly, terrific. Edward Cullen is a brilliant and mysterious man who also happens to be a Vampire. With a slew of bizarre twists, it’s the stuff young fantasies are made of. Yet Pattinson pulls it off with a perfect blend of charm and ballsy astonishment.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
The Goblet of Fire is a Harry Potter film, set in the middle of the considerably superior book-to-movie series, in which many different wizarding schools participate in the Triwizard Tournament. Although some diehard fans may claim that house Hufflepuff has no business in such a tournament, Cedric Diggory is the charming, attractive, and bright student that this tournament requires. This role was crucial in cementing Pattinson’s acting career, proving that he can be a teenage hottie while still possessing the dramatic acting talent to support the argument.
Pattinson makes a spellbinding lead performance as an interplanetary wanderer aboard a drifting spaceship in Claire Denis’ “High Life,” flat and appealingly basic in a character created for Philip Seymour Hoffman. Pattinson’s spectrum of human emotion is crisp and efficient in this movie, while he evolves into slightly different personalities as the story unfolds.
A psychological and radically surreal “horror” film – The Lighthouse, cemented Pattinson’s reputation as a devoted and dramatic performer. On a disjointed New England island, two men called Thomas (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) serve as lighthouse caretakers. Both fight to save their wits and hold on to reality itself. The suspense produced by great photography, haunting music, and the impassioned performances by the main characters — who are almost the only performers in the movie — is the only reason this film is labeled as horror.
The Devil All the Time
This film is gloomy, depressing, and unremarkable. The performances of the central characters, particularly Robert Pattinson, are the film’s ultimate standout. “Delusions!” Rev. Preston Teagarden yells hysterically to his devoted disciples over and over. After his gleaming vampire days, Pattinson’s role in this film is unquestionably the evilest and unlikeable of his career.
