Top ten Charlie Sheen movies
It has been a long time since I have written a top ten list. The recent Charlie Sheen fiasco and a conversation I had on Twitter about Sheen’s roles has prompted me to put together a list of my favorite films from his 30+ year career. While I have not a huge fan of Two and a Half Men, I do like a number of his roles on the big screen. Keep reading to see my list and be sure to share your thoughts!
Please keep in mind this list features films that are not the best or even great. Many of the roles are also small parts, so here we go.
Sheen stars as a “rebellious inmate in an Army stockade” opposite his father, Martin Sheen and Laurence Fishburne in this 1990 film. I fist saw this drama on HBO and really enjoyed it. If you haven’t seen this, it is worth a viewing.
Sheen and Estevez starred on screen in this biopic “of notorious Mitchell Brothers who opened up a successful San Francisco strip club and thriving porn business that lead to a downward spiral of power and greed.” I have only seen this once, but when I watched it I couldn’t stop watching. Check it out when you get a chance, it is a pretty decent film.
Sheen played a “young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider (Michael Douglas) whom takes the youth under his wing.” This is one of his best performances. It is a shame that Stone felt compelled to make a sequel. This film still is one that I can watch over and over again. Sheen’s best years for film were 1986 and 1987!
