10.Hunt For The Wilderpeople (Hector & Ricky)
Long having been in foster care system, twelve-year-old Ricky Baker is deemed a problem and rebellious kid. Hector and his wife Bella, two reclusive country folks, become foster parents to Ricky. I like the way that Sam Neil and Julian Dennison character are totally opposite because at first they really dislike each other and they become like a comedy act as individuals they are really good, their chemistry work really well and that is the key to this film as it sort of like a grown-up version of the animation film Up.
9.Peanut Butter Falcon (Zak & Tyler)
Without a biological family anymore, young adult Zak, with Down Syndrome always dream of becoming a wrestler, despite he is in a care home so he decided to run away. Tyler a small-time outlaw on the run, becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Shia LaBeouf and Zack Gottsagen are out of this world as their partnership work really well especially with comic timing and made this film poignancy and really moving at the same time.
8.The Bucket List (Edward & Carter)
The quiet mechanic, Carter Chambers, has been married for forty-five years to his beloved wife Virginia and has three children. Corporate billionaire Edward Cole has been through his fair share of divorces and has one missing daughter. I personally love this film as they are polar opposite at first but when they starting chatting and getting to know each other they become best of friends, you would connect with these characters in this gem of a movie.
7.Eddie The Eagle (Eddie & Bronson)
Michael “Eddie” Edward, always dream of becoming a British Ski jumper at the 1988 Winter Olympic and it comes true. Bronson now an alcoholic who fell out of favour during the 1970s and he slightly jealous of Eddie. Both of Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton are very likeable and with easy charm and very watchable, them two certainly spot on with great chemistry in this winning film that will made people smile.
6.Goodbye Christopher Robin (AA Milne & Christopher)
Alan Milne is a soldier in World War 1 who fighting in Battle of the Somme and he return home safety but he suffer from PTSD of the aftermath of the war. His wife give birth to a baby boy named Christopher Robin, but his wife have to go away due to her job so it just left him on his own with his son. The film in whole is generally powerful and the performances are top notch in a thought provoking but ultimately moving and poignancy.
5.Bridge Of Spies (James & Rudolf)
James B Donovan is an American lawyer who is married and with two kids but he have to take a case that he recruited by the CIA to help a Soviet spy in court. Rudolf Abel who was arrested for espionage in the US is accused of being a Russian Soviet spy who was captured by the F.B.I. In this Oscar worthy drama that is so successful and certainly very watchable as well, Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance certainly shine though and outclassed each other in a brilliant film.
4.My Octopus Teacher (Craig & Octopus)
Craig Foster is a family man and a filmmaker who video himself alongside with his son to explore an unusual friendship with an octopus who living in a freezing ocean at the trip of South African kelp forest. A surprisingly effective documentary that is sheer beauty and they certainly made use of the location and the cinematography is simply gorgeous to look at in this sincere tale of a usual bonding and turn into a friendship that is so memorable in this touching and moving tale, with a lesser-known film that is silently really good.
3.Wreck – It Ralph (Ralph & Vanellope)
The clumsy Ralph is a video game villain who just wanted to be nice and keep being fed up with being a baddie. Vanellope Von Schweetz, a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy – coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. John C Reilly and Sarah Silverman really capture that spark and really easy chemistry as well and their voice casting is superb in this well-intentioned film.
2.Hugo (Hugo & Georges)
Hugo is an orphan who living in the walls of a train station which previously he lost his father in a fire. Georges Melies, a shopkeeper, who works in the train station, and his adventure – seeking god – daughter. A thought – provoking fantasy type of film that it has an array of colourful characters and the visual are outstanding, it has got beautiful cinematography with an inch perfect story that capture your imaginational in a enjoyable family film that is suitable for a family viewing.
1.Big Hero 6 (Hiro & Baymax)
In San Fransokyo, the fourteen-year-old Hiro Hamada is a little genius who makes money in illegal robot fights. Baymax, a robot whose sole purpose is to take care of people and looking after them. I personally put this film and the partnership first because if you put them two together they are absolutely hilarious and generally heartfelt at the same time, the film in whole it is so beautiful and life affirming and you would connect with these characters in this unique and a beautiful tale of memories and loss and you can taught kids with that subject.
One thought on “Article: Top 10 Friendships In Films”
Another varied and interesting selection Mark. These used to be referred to as “Buddy movies.”
Probably the earliest example was Bing Crosby and Bob Hope On The Road movies. Then there was Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis – these were two silly and slapstick for me.
A more modern example was Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. Their first film together, Stir Crazy is a classic.
