If there's one thing the Hollywood film industry has taught us, it's this: Nothing lasts forever. It's a tough world to be in, yes, but that's how stardom actually works. Yet, with a storied tenure in show business, Ryan Reynolds makes a good case for proving that relevance is not just a fleeting hype. From starring in Canadian soap operas to being considered one of the hottest men across international borders, the actor has gone a long way. With a plethora of accolades under his belt, Reynolds is now a favorite face in the entertainment industry. And no, he's not about to take a backseat.

Okay, to those of you who do not know the actor very well, you might think of Reynolds as just one of those guys whose wistful handsomeness translated into a steady career. Well, that's where you're mistaken, because he's more than that. Although we'll admit, his charm perfectly complements his impressive tenacity, grit, and gusto for acting. And we think we know why Blake Lively fell head over heels with him. However, the Canadian-American multi-hyphenate actually started charting the many facets of film and television at the tender age of 15. Since then, he has built a large trove of experiences that made him a household name. Now, if you're curious why we're gushing about him like this, then read our list. Here are the best Ryan Reynolds movies you should totally check out! Trust us, you're gonna love him even more after this.

    "Although the film's plot is overly common, I think what stood out in this rom-com was Ryan Reynolds' charm and charisma. And the movie also didn't show the transformation that happened with Reynolds' character from what he was a decade ago. I think if this was addressed properly, the story would be a little bit better."

    "I think that the story of the movie is cliche and is seen in most rom-com movies out there? I mean Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock acted very well in the movie but the story itself is pulling them down. I think the film would be better if the story is somehow unique."
