I do not want to be too obvious in this article, so I’m not going to mention such hits as the 2001 action film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, the 2005 action comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and the 2014 fantasy film Maleficent.
Gone in 60 Seconds
The first movie in my list is the 2000 summer blockbuster Gone in 60 Seconds starring Nicolas Cage. Even though Angelina Jolie did not play a huge role in that film, I remembered her as a hot blonde mechanic with dreads.
Another movie I remember very well is the 2004 thriller Taking Lives, partly thanks to the sex scene. Angelina Jolie was especially hot in that film. She played an extremely attractive FBI profiler who had her own weird quirks and whims.
I am a huge fan of historical films and television series. I guess that explains why I really like the 2004 historical drama film Alexander starring Colin Farrell. Angelina Jolie got the part of the cunning and treacherous Queen Olympias. Even though her character was not the noblest person in human history, but the beautiful Hollywood actress did an outstanding job playing her.
Another great movie that is worth mentioning is the 1999 psychological drama film Girl, Interrupted. Based on true events, it depicts the daily routine of a psychiatric hospital patient. Winona Ryder played the leading role, but Angelina Jolie was the true gem of this movie. She played a manipulative and reckless, but very charismatic sociopath who befriended the main character.
The 2002 romantic drama film Beyond Borders is the last but not least in my list. To be honest, I decided to write this post just to tell you about this amazing movie. It features the most gruesome places on our planet: Africa, Cambodia, and Chechnya. The main characters are aid workers who travel to these dangerous areas trying to help people in need.
