Angelina Jolie. One half of what was arguably the best Hollywood power couple of all time. I always believe Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie get more publicity for their private lives than for their prowess in the acting industry. Jolie has produced some remarkable performances over the years. Here is a look at list of top Angelina Jolie movies selected from her impressive filmography. You can watch some of these best Angelina Jolie movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)
The movie which gave Angelina Jolie her big break. Her performance as the spunky heiress Lara Croft stands out in this otherwise average film. This film is credited with giving rise to the plethora of computer game-based films that we see today. Jolie makes the perfect Lara Croft, her facial expressions and sly smirks adds a personality to the character that the video games do not portray. The action scenes are pretty decent, they seem to be heavily inspired from the ‘Indiana Jones’ series of films. A fun movie with nice effects and a strange, interesting plot, worth watching once to see the origins of Angelina Jolie.

11. Playing by Heart (1998)
A true hidden gem of a film that takes you an endearing, emotional ride. The film boasts a largely talented cast of actors including the likes of Gillian Anderson (of ‘The X Files’ fame), Sean Connery and Ellen Burstyn. The story follows four different couples and the struggles which each of them face. It shows what it takes to maintain relationship and is a case study on what love really is. Angelina Jolie’s acting is downright stunning and her on-screen chemistry with Ryan Phillipe is perfect. The movie takes a fresh approach to problem solving and that is where its strength lies. A funny and romantic film with astonishingly true parallels to real life which will live you with a good feeling inside.
