      Kirk Lazarus in TT doesn't just "happen to be black". The character Lazarus (as Downey himself) was actually white...undergoing a surgery to change his skin color. And where is "Natural Born Killers"? Downey was gold in that one!

      why is it that you're never willing to criticise an actors performance when you do these, its always that "the film was bad but their performance was great"... seems a bit of a$$ kissing really. although im sure there hasnt been many poor performances from R.D.J...... kiss kiss bang bang would definitely be my number 1 on the list, and i agree with @Bandit1, wheres natural born killers??

      I agree with everyone above on his other films not mentioned. Surely if Nick Cage's Best to Worst list has 51 entries, RDJ's list should be close to that. limiting this list to 15 isn't nearly enough to cover RDJ's "best" movies. And the Avengers being number 1 here... Would this be the same if you compiled the same list a year from now. Most of us could hardly agree with that, as we haven't even seen it yet. Kind of a cheap ploy to market that movie. Please go back and redo this list. I understand that you are not going to please all of us nerds here, but come on... 15? Try again.

      I can name a few you guys left out: Heart and Souls, Natural Born Killers, Less Than Zero, The Pick Up Artist, Back to School, True Believer, Richard III, Home For The Holidays, Black And White, Wonder Boys, A Scanner Darkly. I mean how can you NOT add his performance in Natural Born Killers?

And where is "Natural Born Killers"? Downey was gold in that one! Thanks for saving me the time, Bandit. And this one needs to be higher on the list. The ONLY reason he didn't WIN the Oscar for this role was because Heath Ledger died. And omitting Less Than Zero??? I'll ask it again...do you writers even watch movies???

      Another Josh Winning special. As Tropic Thunder is in this list, I think it's apt to quote Tom Cruise. A nutless monkey could do your job. Seriously. A nutless monkey.

      This is not Worst to Best. This is RDJ being excellent in everything whether the film is good or not. Proving how amazing he truly is.
