10. A Scanner Darkly
Character: Bob Arctor
The animation layer used in this film is basically an Instragram filter. But it was cutting edge (read: expensive) technology when the movie was made. Then you watch it, and it’s about a meth house, nothing like you’d expected going in.
9. Johnny Mnemonic
Character: Johnny Mnemonic
This technothriller seemed corny at the time, but it aged much better than Hackers and other attempts from the era.
Character: Jack Traven
Pop quiz, hot shot – Reeves, Dennis Hopper, and Sandra Bullock…what more could you ask for in a movie experience?
Character: John Constantine
It’s one of the lesser known comic book movies but still a good one that fits in well with today’s tales of heaven, hell, and the afterlife.
6. Always Be My Maybe
Character: Keanu Reeves
This Allie Wong romcom features one of the top 10 self cameo appearances in movie history. Well done, Netflix. Well done.
5. The Replacements
Character: Shane Falco
If you know a man between the age of 35 and 50, odds are this movie is on their list of favorites (football films, anyway).
4. Point Break
Character: Johnny Utah
The original Fast and Furious movie was about a gang of surfers wearing presidential masks to rob banks.
3. The Matrix Franchise
If you’ve never heard of The Matrix, what are you doing on the Internet? Long story short, it revolutionized filmmaking and created tropes like bullet time. It’s still watched, studied, and beloved to this day.
2. John Wick
Character: John Wick
Yet another classic franchise featuring Keanu looking as young as ever. Whatever fountain of youth he discovered, I think we can all kinda want to transfuse his blood into our bodies, right? Or is that weird, because if it is, forget I said anything.
1. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure/Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey
Character: Ted “Theodore” Logan
If you don’t know, now you know that the Wyld Stallyns are the greatest band in history. They even go back through history to prove it in a phone booth. It’s such a great Doctor Who parody and dark horse Back to the Future. Easily the best time travel movie ever, and a retro classic that withstood the test of time.
