Article: Top 5 Robert De Niro Films

5.Shark Tale

When a son of a gangster shark boss is accidentally killed while on the hunt, his would be prey and his vegetarian brother decide to use the incident to their own advantage. The reason why I like this animation film, is the message of don’t let fame get to your head and ruined your reputation. The all-star vocal talent is superb and brim with comic timing and with catchy tunes, it is one of those that is well intentioned but a really cute film.

4.The Comeback Trail

Two movie producers who owe money to the mob set up their aging movie star for an insurance scam to try and save themselves. But they wind up getting more than they ever imagined. Some will like this film and some don’t as this film will divided people, it often hilarious with certain funny moments and overall this try to be something different which I admire.

3.Last Vegas

Four friends take a break from their day to day lives to throw a bachelor party in Last Vegas for their last remaining single pal. I’m not normally a massive fan of raunchy comedy but this one isn’t too over the top, it is well casted and it like a feel-good type of vibe which you needed in general, It also made you smile as well in this well-made film.

2.The Intern

Seventy-year-old widower Ben Whittaker has discovered that retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin. Uplifting and purely enjoyable as this is pure escapism and it will put a smile on your face, all the acting is superb and it is a warm and fun film.

1.Everybody’s Fine

A widower who realized his only connection to his family was through his wife sets off on an impromptu road trip to reunite with each of his own children. A beautiful road movie/ coming of age film that will capture people heart, this also made you think of your families and it will moved you, it is one of those underrated film that should be giving more recognition as it is sincere.

  1. I have to disagree with you on these selections Mark. I think you have to go further back to find De Niro’s best work:
    1. Raging Bull – won the Oscar for best Actor
    2. The Godfather: Part II – Oscar for best supporting actor
    3. Taxi Driver – nominated for best actor
    4. The Deer Hunter – nominated for best supporting actor
    5. Awakenings – nominated for best actor
    6. Cape Fear – nominated for best actor
    And not forgetting –
    Once Upon A Time in America
    A Bronx Tale
    The King of Comedy

    So, a lot more classic performances compared to your selections.
