Robert Pattinson Movies, Ranked By Tomatometer

Robert Pattinson on the Twilight series press circuits would occasionally mock the movies he was out there supposedly promoting, suggesting two things: (1) maybe this new on the scene IT boy was actually a genuine person, and (2) he had made enough money by New Moon to never work in this town again. Many young actors’ careers have been crushed under the weight of the very things that made them famous. And unemployment post-Twilight was a very real threat for Pattinson: Would he only be remembered as that pasty sparkling vegetarian vampire?

As Twilight wound down, Pattinson threw himself before the arthouse gods, who guided him to challenging directors like David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis, Maps to the Stars), Anton Corbijn (Life), Werner Herzog (Queen of the Desert), and David Michôd (The Rover). And though none of those movies represented their respective director’s best work, and in the case of Herzog it was actually his worst, they showcased Pattinson as a dedicated performer and, especially in dystopian western The Rover, a sometimes unpredictable and savage one.

And then in 2017 he put out Good Time, just to show you sometimes all you need is that one movie to turn your image around. As with the Safdie brothers’ later Uncut Gems, Good Time assaults the senses while building a central emphatic and engaging character defined by constant frantic action. Pattinson came out as the indie hero of that year, and having James Gray’s The Lost City of Z release around the same time didn’t hurt, either. A strong 2019 continued that trend with Claire Denis’ High Life and Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse.

His latest film was Netflix thriller The Devil All the Time, opposite Tom Holland. And currently a dark night falls upon Pattinson’s career as he takes on the mantle of Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Take a look at all Robert Pattinson movies, ranked by Tomatometer! Alex Vo

For the entire month of November, dudes everywhere get a free “get out of social jail” card to grow mustaches however they please. We call it “Movember.” So guys, let your upper lip hair prickle forth in order to raise awareness of men’s health issues and… stick it to shaving cream lobbyists in Washington? Anyways, here’s our photo gallery of at least 30 mustaches for 30 days of Movember 2016.


Your humble Rotten Tomatoes editors would like to thank everyone who participated in our Little Ashes Moustache Contest! We received TONS of great moustache submissions for our Little Ashes poster giveaway contest, but now the time has finally come to reveal which of our great readers made the final cut (and which lucky two finalists won our random drawing to win one signed Little Ashes poster each)! Take a peek inside to see the twenty most creative, most entertaining, and most impressive moustache submissions that we received (and tell us which ones you like the most) and give a hearty congratulations to our winners!

In Little Ashes, Robert Pattinson (Twilight) gives a daring performance as the young art student Salvador Dali, who arrives at Spain’s School of Fine Arts and befriends fellow up-and-comers Luis Bunuel (Matthew McNulty) and the poet Federico Garcia Lorca (Javier Beltran), with whom Dali has an unusual and tumultuous love affair. As Dali the student grows apart from Lorca and strikes out to seize his own destiny, he grows the famous long and pointy moustache that Dali the artist would become known for — one that he wore at times twisted up, pointed out, and even adorned with tiny flowers.

In celebration of Little Ashes‘ theatrical debut last week, Rotten Tomatoes invited all of our readers to catch the Dali spirit and submit their best photographed, drawn, or Photoshopped moustache self portraits. After a harrowing selection process, our editors narrowed down their favorites to a pool of twenty finalists; see who made the cut! (Our two grand prize winners, selected at random from the pool of finalists, will each receive a Little Ashes poster signed by star Robert Pattinson, courtesy of Regent Releasing.)

In this week’s period piece Little Ashes, Twilight star Robert Pattinson adopts the mannerisms — and the famously eccentric facial hair — of Spanish artist Salvador Dali. In celebration of the film, which hits select cities nationwide on Friday, RT is hosting an epic, week-long moustache contest to see who can come the closest to replicating the master painter and filmmaker’s iconic ‘stache. Do you have the stuff that moustache dreams are made of? If so, step up and submit your best photographed, Photoshopped, or drawn self portraits for a chance to win an exclusive Little Ashes poster signed by Pattinson himself!

This week at the movies, we’ve got a brand new Enterprise (Star Trek, starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto) and a failed delivery (Next Day Air, starring Donald Faison and Mike Epps). What do the critics have to say?



[tomatometer]MuzeID=1186973[/tomatometer]

Star Trek

It boldly goes where no Trek has gone before. This new Trek will live long and prosper. No matter what clichés they may use, there’s no getting around the critics’ main point: JJ AbramsStar Trek is stirring mainstream entertainment, and breathes new life into the moribund franchise. It’s an origin story, one that tells the tale of how Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) became, well, Kirk and Spock. The pundits say Abrams’ action-packed, visually remarkable take on such venerable material will reward both fans and newcomers alike, and sets an impressive new course for one of pop culture’s most enduring series. Not only is Star Trek Certified Fresh, it’s the best-reviewed wide release of the year. To top it all off, it’s the best-reviewed entry in the Star Trek franchise to date.

Next Day Air

Caper comedies walk a fine line; if you get too bogged down in the crime itself, the laughs can suffer. Such is the case with Next Day Air, which critics say has some moments of madcap intensity but falters from a lack of discipline. The movie stars Donald Faison as an inept deliveryman who unwittingly drops a large shipment of cocaine at the apartment of two incompetent bank robbers; pretty soon, in Tarantino-esque fashion, a number of colorful characters intersect with wacky results. Or not, say pundits, who find the film’s tonal shift from slapstick to surprisingly cold-hearted violence unpleasant.

Robert Pattinson - Charley Gallay/WireImage.comThanks to a teen phenomenon called Twilight, Robert Pattinson has gone from being a little-known Brit actor (best known as the handsome, ill-fated Cedric Diggory in two Harry Potter films) to having his face plastered across every major magazine, television show, and website known to man. Or at least, every one of them known to teenage girls. This Friday, thousands of Pattinson’s admiring fans will have the pleasure of finally watching the teen vampire romance that has launched their favorite new teen idol into the stratosphere, as he stars opposite Kristen Stewart as Edward Cullen, the dreamiest undead boyfriend of the year in Catherine Hardwicke‘s (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown) adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling novel.

But there’s more than Tiger Beat fodder to the 22-year-old actor; after the Twilight frenzy peaks this week (with fans and Summit Entertainment suits crossing their fingers for a breakout box office to justify a multi-sequel franchise) Pattinson will appear next March as a young Salvador Dali in Little Ashes (click for images)– a period piece that might test the ardor of Pattinson’s Twilight fan base — and the indie outsider pic How to Be, which will likely pick up distribution in the wake of Twilight. Pattinson’s artful leanings came out in a conversation with Rotten Tomatoes about his favorite films of all time, which span such cinematic luminaries as Jack Nicholson, Jean-Luc Godard, and…Chris Kattan?

Read on for Five Favorite Films with Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975, 98% Tomatometer)



One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
The films that I like aren’t necessarily because they’re good films in themselves — One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a good film — but that one specifically meant a lot to me. Not because I was in a mental home or anything, but that character influenced me so much when I was 15 or 16, and bits of it stuck with me. A lot of that kind of “putting your middle finger up to the world” attitude — not that I really have that, but…I used to be so timid, and that was one of those films that [helped me break out], by pretending to be [Jack Nicholson’s character] Randle.

The Exorcist (1973, 85% Tomatometer)



Exorcist

The Exorcist, because I love Linda Blair. [Laughs] She’s my ideal woman.

Prenom Carmen (First Name: Carmen) (1983, 88% Tomatometer)



Prenom Carmen

What else do I like? A Godard film called Prenom Carmen, which sounds like I’m just saying that to be cool, but it’s actually one of my favorite films. I think it’s the best Godard film. It’s like his version of Carmen the opera, one of his films from the eighties. In terms of just pure filmmaking and manipulating an audience, it kind of starts out as a farce, as a complete, stupid farce, with this bank robbery; but it’s really, really…Godardian, with kind of a stupid humor that’s so random. Only he could make it, mixed up with these kinds of philosophical elements.

It starts out with one of these bank robbers, these students, and she starts to sleep with one of the guards; she’s having sex with him in the bank, and he pretends to arrest her and they run away together. And he wants to be part of her gang. It’s all so completely ridiculous. And then suddenly, halfway through, it turns into the most heartbreaking, serious thing that you’ve ever seen — out of nowhere! — and you’re suddenly so attached to these characters, which you weren’t before, because it seemed like a stupid student film. They have this secondary story where they have a string quartet playing the soundtrack which runs in the other story, but they film them during rehearsal, just doing really close up things with them playing cello and stuff, and it’s about the relationship with the conductor and this girl, the cellist — and it’s completely random to the film, but it’s incredible.

Continuing on the subject of Godard…

I love the last line of Breathless — it’s literally one of the best [representations] of the relationship between women and men. He was also very aware of how people viewed his films, and that film in particular. Everyone was thinking, oh, I’m cool, because I like this, and it’s like, “What does ‘bitch’ mean?” [Laughs] That’s kind of the conflict. I love that.

Breathless is definitely what got me into Godard. You can’t really be influenced by Jean-Paul Belmondo though, because he’s too cool — so there’s no point in me trying to be like him! Randle McMurphy, you can kind of wear his clothes. [Laughs] It’s quite easy to find them. But if you wore Belmondo’s clothes, you’d look like an idiot.

But even he’s trying to be someone else — he’s trying to be Bogart.

He’s not really — he’s cooler than Bogart! [Pattinson imitates Belmondo’s signature move, brushing his thumb over his lips.] That’s like the coolest thing! Another film, Pierrot le Fou — I did everything from those movies. These stupid, random things, like when he says, “Can I get two beers?” And she’s like, “Why?” “I want to have one when I finish the other one.” I was like, that’s so cool! I have to do that all the time! There’s this stupid thing from Arizona Dream, with Vincent Gallo and Johnny Depp, where Vincent Gallo does this thing, [in Gallo’s American accent] “Two shots, two beers.” So every time I buy drinks, I go “Two shots, two beers!” I love that film so much.


Corky Romano (2001, 5% Tomatometer)



Corky Romano

Corky Romano. I love that film. Literally, that’s one of the only films I’ve pissed my pants at. Like, I actually pissed my pants. The first time I was in L.A. I was watching it on TV. The scene where he’s on coke…was literally the only thing that they advertised, it was like the only point of the whole movie! I love that character. I love how Chris Kattan just stripped his whole career in one movie. The only guy off Saturday Night Live who just messed it up! It’s like, what happened? The only guy. That’s why I think it’s so great.

I also love the behind-the-scenes stuff on the DVD where none of the crew are laughing; the director’s [hiding] and he’s telling Chris Kattan, “Just do something funny, just make Chris Penn laugh,” and none of the crew think it’s funny at all. And you can tell Chris Kattan is just freaking out. Also, he had that vein, which I have [Pattinson points to his forehead] which pops out of his head. I can really relate to him.

ivan’s xtc. (2002, 75% Tomatometer)



ivans xtc.

A film called ivan’s xtc. It’s a Danny Huston film. That’s what I’ve been watching obsessively recently. It’s amazing; Danny Huston should have gotten nominated for an Oscar for it. It’s about an agent in Hollywood, and it’s kind of a dumb movie before Huston comes in, and then literally is the best example of one performance elevating a movie. It was shot on digital video; it’s all improvised. Just having him there, he’s literally this — I don’t know, I can’t even describe it. I’ve never seen a performance like it. He’s flawless. And if you’ve ever met an agent, ever…
