’30-YOC’ Top Ten List – ‘Top Ten Kevin Bacon Films’
I make no bones about it, I am a big Kevin Bacon fan. And while his films are not near the box office draws that attract $100 million dollar paying audiences, I rarely encounter a person that doesn’t have a favorite Kevin Bacon film.
He is a superb character actor, and he plays one hell of a bad guy too. Of all of the actors in Hollywood, he is of a rare kind, in my eyes at least, as when I see him perform on screen I am never thinking about another role he has portrayed. That fact can be said of very few actors. and that is why I find him to be elite.
Enough about my love for the guy, let’s get right down to my favorites films in which he has starred.
Honorable Mention – Friday 13th, Diner, Quicksilver, White Water Summer, Flatliners, A Few Good Men, The River Wild, and Trapped.
10 – Hollow Man
9 – Sleepers
8 – Apollo 13
7 – The Woodsman
6 – Footloose
5 – Taking Chance
4 – Death Sentence
3 – Mystic River
2 – Animal House
1 – Stir Of Echoes
And there it is!
I really struggled with having ‘Taking Chance’ at 5 – it could easily be in my Top 2. If you have never seen it, I highly recommend that you take the time to watch it.
Thanks for reading. I’ll have another baseball list for you next Sunday night!
