My Top 5 Rupert Grint Movies!

It's no secret that I am huge fan of Rupert Grint. Ever since I first saw him at 12 years old (same age as me) in Harry Potter, I knew there was something special about him. As I watched him grow up in the Harry Potter movies, I also kept an eye on other projects that he took part in. Currently this leaves me up to date with all his movies apart from his new one Moonwalkers, which I believe is out on Blu-ray in February. When I'm in America and miss home, all I have to do is hear his voice and I feel comforted and at home, maybe it's because he was a huge part of my childhood or maybe I'm really weird, who knows?! :p I'm sure we all have someone like that though don't we?? Let me know yours in the comments below! :) I recently saw Rupert do a little skit on the Tracey Ullman show and again I just couldn't help the smile on my face. I look forward to all his future projects as I just think he is an incredible actor who has such a unique and wonderful, laid back personality. Today I thought I would share with you my Top 5 Rupert Grint movies, you may have seen some of them, even all of them or you may never have heard of them, if the latter is the case...make notes!

Number 1!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 and 2! 

I'm kind of cheating here as technically this is two movies and I also love all of the Harry Potter movies, however I chose the combined last installment of Harry Potter for the following reasons:
Part 1 because I love the scene where Ron gets mad at Harry and storms out of the tent, it's an emotion we hadn't seen up until that point between the two friends and they both did such a good job. I thought Rupert's acting was perfect and he sounded so cute all angry..I know, I know, weirdo! :p
Part 2, any guesses?? Well done if you said the kiss between Ron and Hermione! Lately I've been watching these movies in a different light, if you look at it as a growing love story between Ron and Hermione it is just the sweetest thing. I love how their relationship blossoms and finally culminates in the famous kiss in The Chamber of Secrets. After all the years of being best friends and the emotions of seeing each other with different guys and girls in the past, they finally acknowledge their feelings and it's so romantic and so lovely! :) Both Rupert and Emma were adorable!

Number 2!
Wild Target!

If you haven't seen this movie then add it to your movie list NOW! Not only does it star Rupert but also Emily Blunt, Bill Nighy and Martin Freeman and it is hilarious! I try to get my family to watch it all the time and I swear before we go back to America this time I will succeed. As usual Rupert's comic timing and ability to show more sides than just Ron Weasley is shown in abundance as he acts alongside some of Britain's best actors and actresses. In the movie Rupert finds himself a witness to an attempted hit on Emily Blunt thus ending up in a car with her and Bill Nighy, who has found himself protecting her rather than doing his job. They end up on the run where they all teach other a few lessons and learn a lot about each other. It really is a hilarious, easy going movie with some great laugh out loud moments and brilliant performances from Britain's finest! I love it!

Number 3!
Driving Lessons!

To me, this movie is kind of like a classic coming of age movie, I have to be in a certain mood to watch it but it is just a lovely, sweet and funny story that makes me smile. Plus it also stars Julie Walters and I just love her!! She is wonderful and absolutely hilarious! In this movie Rupert's Character and Julie's character make an unlikely pairing and become best friends. Rupert is a very awkward, shy, poetry writing teen and Julie is a old lady who used to preform on stage and loves classic literature and poetry. The pair of them end up driving to Edinburgh or rather Julie's character forces Ruperts', who is only a learner driver, to drive there for a speech she has been asked to give. There are laugh out loud but also sad moments too in this movie as Rupert deals with his parents relationship breaking down and girls at school not giving him the time of day. I really enjoyed the sentiment and sweet side of his character and definitely recommend giving it a watch.

Number 4!
Into the white!

I watched this movie on my own one night, which was quite unusual for me as I tend to watch random, cheesy romcoms when home alone. On this night however, I wanted to watch a Rupert movie for a little home comfort. I had also seen little clips of him from this movie singing in a Liverpudlian accent so I knew I had to see it. The movie is about two groups of men, one group being British, the other German. The British pilots shoot down the Germans but end up crash landing as well in the same snowy mountains. Both groups of men find shelter in the same place and at first can not get a long. As time goes on, they realize that in order to survive they are going to have to work together. I have to say that I didn't think this would be my type of movie but I actually thoroughly enjoyed it. I do find History very interesting, so I enjoyed that aspect of it, as well as Rupert's performance and Liverpudlian accent...oh and he had quite a nice singing voice! :)

Number 5!

I was really excited to see this movie as it seemed like a fun and different role for Rupert to play. The movie is obviously about the historical New York movie venue CBGB and Rupert plays Cheetah Chrome who is a member of the band The Dead Boys who were CBGB regulars. I really enjoyed seeing Rupert play this character as well as seeing him act alongside another of his Harry Potter co-stars, the brilliant Alan Rickman! It's a very edgy movie, full of history lessons for the likes of me who isn't familiar with this kind of music genre and scene. It was interesting to see who I did know though and who made a name for themselves at this iconic place before they hit the big time! I won't give anything away though for those who haven't seen and may want to watch this movie! :) 

That my friends is my Rupert Grint Top 5! Let me know if you have seen any of these movies and which one is your favourite! I am currently looking forward to seeing Moonwalkers! :)

Have a great day!
