Shutter Island or Infinity War.

I shall probably vote for the former; since the MCU films always get many votes.

It’s supposed to read “frickin’ brilliant”. I hate spellcheck!

He is a bad actor, I can't find any good performance even in his great film.

I agree. A one dimensional actor!

Considering the Screen Actors Guild of America, which is comprised of actors, gave him a Best Actor Award for The Normal Heart, he must be doing something right. Then there’s the Tony nomination for “Awake & Sing,” and 3 Oscar nominations, a N.Y. Film Critics Circle Award for “The Kids Are All Right...” I think you guys are confusing just disliking the way Mark Ruffalo looks , or the sound of his voice, or maybe his politics, with his actual acting.

FYC:

Reservation Road
Margaret
Normal Heart
We Don't Live Here Anymore
My Life Without Me
What Doesn't Kill You
Infinitely Polar Bear
The Brothers Bloom

(If it's hard to keep track, I think putting films in alphabetical order helps (or perhaps chronological order), at least for 6 - 35. That way you can still choose the first five.)

My current criteria are films with at least 5.5 ratings and 25k votes.

All my similar polls, "Favorite [ACTOR] film", have specific criteria.

I also leave out films where they only made a cameo or credits like "thanks" or "uncredited".

The first five are mostly my favorites, the rest of the list is sorted by IMDb rating.

=====

However, since you asked, I've changed the minimum no. of votes required from 25k to 20k, but the rating remains the same. (films with a 5.4 or below rating are excluded)

=====

New Entries:

54 (1998)
My Life Without Me (2003)
All the King's Men (2006)
Reservation Road (2007)

- 'The Brothers Bloom' is already on the list.
- 'The Normal Heart' is a TV movie. I've only added feature films.

Oh, ok, inclusion criteria is fine, of course. I'd suggest noting that in the intro., though.

Also, generally speaking, random "Favorite (actor's name) Film" polls do not stand a good chance of going live. If it's timely, however, that changes things so, since he has a new mini-series on HBO, mentioning that in the intro would make it more justifiable to go live.

Since there's only one TV movie that meets the criteria, I've added it (The Normal Heart (2014)) to the list. :)

I wouldn't have made this exception if he wasn't nominated for Golden Globes. (Thanks to Jamaica Fisher Knauer for mentioning that above.)

David Fincher's Zodiac (2007) would get my vote here. But, I would advocate lowering the voting threshold and maybe raising the minimum rating a bit. It is an absolute crime Infinitely Polar Bear (2014) isn't on the list. It one of the better indie films for both Mark Ruffalo  and Zoe Saldana.

Despite its sleeper status, it still managed to secure him a Golden Globe acting nomination in 2016.

Urbanemovies,

Since you rarely comment on my PS (this may be your first time) and I had a few spots left; I made a few changes and added Infinitely Polar Bear (2014) with two others that Ruby suggested.

Hi Boss, I'm not sure if you saw this above but it's rather important:

Also, generally speaking, random "Favorite (actor's name) Film" polls do not stand a good chance of going live. If it's timely, however, that changes things so, since he has a new mini-series on HBO, mentioning that in the intro would make it more justifiable to go live.

Oh, I'm sorry, Ruby. I did notice your message above; I just got distracted by which of his films I should add to the list.

I've added a little note about him and his new mini-series.

Let me know if there's any correction to be made.

Thank you! <3

'No problem at all, Boss, and the intro is great!  It really sounds good. I'm not sure how to choose just one movie, though. : )
