My top three Mark Wahlberg films (for @daisyvtaylor thanks for the suggestion!) 1. THE DEPARTED (2006)
I have so much love for this film as you could all easily guess due to it being a Leo/Scorsese collaboration but I count this as my favourite Wahlberg film because i love his character. He has some of the best lines in the whole film, adds a lot of comedy to otherwise serious scenes all while demanding the respect of those around him. Brilliant character effortlessly portrayed by Wahlberg!
2. PATRIOTS DAY (2016)
This is such a powerful movie and Mark Wahlberg really does the tragedy of the Boston bombings justice with his performance and involvement in the filmmaking. Knowing how close to his heart Boston is really makes this films even more emotive and it's easy to see how much passion he puts into this role. A must-see film!
3. THE FIGHTER (2011)
When writing this list it was super hard to pick only 3, I'm a big fan of films like Boogie Nights and even Daddy's Home (controversial I know) but it was The Fighter that kept coming to mind. I'm not usually a fan of sports movies but the chemistry between Wahlberg and Bale really kept me captivated and the dark, corrupt tone of this film is something I'll always be a fan of. I definitely need to rewatch this film as I've still only seen it once but I can't wait to watch Wahlberg and Bale shine in this film again soon.
