Here are our top 5 Chris Pratt movies
Guardians of the Galaxy
This movie introduced Peter Quill aka Star-Lord to the world played by then a 34-year-old Chris Pratt. This movie set the bar high for upcoming Marvel movies. The story follows Star-Lord from his childhood days in Missouri until he was abducted by space ravagers and became one himself. He stole a mysterious orb that would make him a target of Ronan the Accuser. For people who are into superhero movies with sequels, this is a great one to watch. Compared to other first-part Marvel titles, Guardians of the Galaxy really stood out.
The Lego Movie
This Lego-inspired adventure comedy film was Pratt’s first animated work in which he played Emmet Brickowski, a law-abiding construction worker who was mistaken as the Special. Emmet’s everyday life would then be transformed into a big adventure with Batman, Superman, a wizard master-builder, and a villain named Lord Business. Pratt was really able to make Emmet’s character his own and combined with other Hollywood stars, it was just a feel-good movie with the right amount of almost everything, and it is suitable for all ages.
Moneyball is a movie inspired by real-life events surrounding the story of Oakland Athletics’ general manager Billy Beane played by the legendary Brad Pitt who relied on empirical analysis of players to win games. Alongside him was Jonah Hill who played economics graduate Peter Brand. Pratt played a supporting role as former MLB first baseman and catcher Scott Hatteberg. Despite playing a supporting role, Pratt made the character very relatable to many aspiring baseball players. The depth Pratt brought into this role added value to the movie’s storyline of David taking on Goliath. The movie’s climax scene was centered on Hatterberg hitting a walk-off home run.
