Nominated for an Academy Award and Golden Globe for his brilliant acting, Andrew Garfield is better known for his role of Spider-Man in the second reboot of the franchise by Sony. Not to give him any discredit though. Whoever plays Spider-Man is bound to end up being identified by similar characters all his life. However, in the recent years, with movies like ‘Breathe’ and ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ getting added to the stack, this British American actor has shown his penchant for challenging and demanding roles. Being just 34 years old, Andrew has undoubtedly got a long road ahead of him, and we at Cinemaholic are positive he’ll prove his worth with an Oscar or two. Till then, please enjoy the list of top 10 movies of Andrew Garfield. Cheers.


10. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

As if Tobey Maguire destroying the Spider-Man franchise wasn’t enough it was rebooted with Andrew Garfield again to ruin another actor with a bright future. Well with some unrelated jokes aside -almost- ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ was an interesting addition by Sony into the long list of movies, TV series, and cartoons made on your friendly neighborhood Spidey. Peter Parker is your average genius teenager -sounds like an oxymoron- with his best friend Gwen Stacy keeping her company at all times. However, when he discovers new powers after getting bit by a radioactive spider, his life changes for the better. This one is certainly a different and diverse role responsible for making Andrew Garfield experienced in the show business.


9. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)

A story of fantasy, horror, and thrill Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a roller coaster of emotions. Doctor Parnassus a supposed immortal lost his immortality to the Devil in a wager. To become youthful again, he promised all of his children’s souls to the Devil when they become 16 years old. However, when his daughter Valentina comes of age, the good Doctor becomes tentative to give them up. So he puts a new wager with the Devil: whoever can gather five souls before Valentina’s 16th birthday, will become worthy of her. In a race where Tony a strange philanthropist and Anton, an able magician of the troupe take part, this movie’s climax will have you throw your predictions out the window.

7. The Social Network (2010)

The story of the billionaire founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg, and his best friend Eduardo Saverin, this is based on a true story with slight altercations. Very minor I might add. On a dare to hack the Harvard student database, brilliant but socially awkward coder Mark Zuckerberg gets the idea to create an online social media platform where every member can do what they do every day: gossip. However, the gossip site grows by leaps and bounds outside his and his best friend Gordo’s expectations. When the small website started by two friends reaches a global level and becomes a huge empire, everyone starts suing Mark left and right. How will the boy genius get out of the court battles which do nothing but waste his apparently precious time?
