Article: Top 5 Bill Nighy Films

5.Shaun OF The Dead

The uneventful, aimless lives of a London electronics salesman and his lay about roommate are disrupted by the Zombie apocalypse. An all-British film which has got a superb cast and this is generally funny, it is well casted and especially Bill Nighy as the dad and the acting in general is superb, the film didn’t take itself too seriously and this is actually a really good film.

4.Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

Jack Sparrow races to recover the heart of Davy Jones to avoid enslaving his soul to Jones’ service, as other friends and foes seek the heart for their own agenda as well. Perfectly paced film, which is entertaining from start to finish, the CGI/SFX is truly outstanding and also eye catching as well, the villain is totally memorable and Bill Nighy is excellent in this role, this is truly epic with stunning scenery.


A veteran civil servant receives a medical diagnosis that inspires him to move to the South coast and cram some fun into his remaining days. He meets a sunny young female colleague who seems to have pep that had previously escaped him. Too be honest with you this film actually surprised me, the ending is poignancy and moving and it will leaves you a lasting impression on you, this is a slow burner type of film but at the end of this film, it will gradually wowed you.

2.The Marigold Hotel Collection

British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than advertised, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways. Simply a feel-good type of film which pull a smile to people faces, it got an all – star cast and they are really convincing, it is heartfelt and moving and you actually care with these characters and the two films are consistent, it is charming and joyous.

1.Flushed Away

The story of an uptown rat that gets flushed down the toilet from his penthouse apartment, ending in the sewers of London, where he has to learn a whole new and different way of life. Personally, this is pure escapism and this is suitable for all ages and a family viewing, the vocal in this film is superb and especially Bill Nighy and Andy Serkis is absolutely hilarious, this is heartfelt and it also pull a smile to people faces, the story is there as it is a rainy-day type of film.

  1. Good list Mark. Not much to add. Just a couple of suggestions.
    Not universally popular but I liked the film version of Dad’s Army in which Bill Nighy played Arthur Wilson.
    I also liked him in Auf Wiedersehen Pet when he played a dodgy politician who had been in prison with Oz.

  2. I have seen Dad’s Army the movie and I wasn’t really a massive fan; I also not so keen on the program itself as I seen bits and pieces of the show. I have heard of Auf Wiedersehen Pet, but I haven’t seen any episode.
