With Reynolds voicing the fan-favorite Pokémon and Justice Smith being a great sidekick, this movie really showed off the passion and world of this classic franchise.


A departure for Reynolds as he took on a more serious role compared to his other comedians, Buried was a tense 95 minutes. A survival film that centers on a truck driver who finds himself buried in a coffin with only a few tools at its end, Reynolds really knocks it out of the park as Paul Conroy.

dead Pool

To be a passion project for Reynolds, dead Pool was a huge hit when it was released. Focusing on Wade Wilson as he transforms into Merc with a Mouth, Reynolds brings this iconic character to the screen who looks pretty much a 1:1 with his comic book counterpart. With all the fourth walls broken and the violence of the character, this is by far Reynolds’ best work.
