Top 10 Matt Damon Movies

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

In honor of The Martian coming out this weekend, this week’s top 10 will be based on the star of that movie, Matt Damon.

10. Invictus

– I’ll be honest- I know literally nothing about rugby.  But you don’t have to to enjoy this inspirational movie set in South Africa.

9. The Green Zone

– Yeah so it has one of the most convoluted plots ever conceived.  But it has some very interesting and entertaining moments as well.

8. True Grit

– I like the John Wayne original better myself but as far as remakes go, you can do much worse than this one.

7. Contagion

– It’s overly long and a little confusing, but it’s got an all star cast and is a crazy this-could-really-happen scenario that’s enjoyable to watch.

6. The Bourne Identity

– The beginning of the trilogy, it introduces us to Jason Bourne- the amnesiac super spy who we’d all love to be. Is it the last Bourne movie on the list? We shall see.

5. Saving Private Ryan

– Ok, so normally this would be number 1 on any list. But I decided to move it lower on this one because Matt Damon has a very small role, albeit one of his best.

4. Good Will Hunting

– Not only is his acting great in this incredible movie, he also won an Oscar for writing it. It’s probably the best overall movie on this list, or at least close to it, but I just enjoy watching these others a little more.

3. Ocean’s 11

– One of the best heist movies ever made.  It’s entertaining from start to finish, with part of that due to Damon’s character.

2. The Bourne Ultimatum

– The final chapter of the trilogy (until they finish making this new one they are working on) happens to be the best one. It has the best story, the best supporting characters, and definitely the best action. Damon was born to play Bourne.

1. The Departed

– Yep, it’s number one for the second time in 3 weeks. It’s one of my favorite movies and you can read about why I love it so much in my review that can be found here.

Honorable mentions: The Bourne Supremacy (probably could have made the list but thought it might be cheating to have all 3 on here. I enjoy this one the least out of the 3), The Adjustment Bureau
