The Good, The Bad & Gravity: Sandra Bullock’s Movies Ranked

|

15. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Following The Blind Side, Sandra had to prove her Best Actress win with more Oscar-bait (especially considering that Razzie). So she opted for this 9/11 movie that mostly felt like a ploy to tug at the audience’s heartstrings. However, it still ended up getting nominated for Best Film.

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 47%
Box Office: $31 million

14. The Net

This cyber thriller hit all the right notes of a Michael Crichton thriller without actually being based on a Crichton book. Sandra is a Pelican Brief Julia Roberts-type of systems analyst who gets caught up in a cyber war after the Undersecretary of Defense commits suicide. Sure, why not?

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 36%
Box Office: $110 million

13. Murder by Numbers

The psychological thriller put Sandra against-type as a harden cop whose job is to think like the murderers. Ryan Gosling and Michael Pitt have fun overacting in early roles while Sandra keeps things dry and snort-less. It may have played better as a Lifetime film but it’s one that fun to re-watch.

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 31%
Box Office: $31 million

12. Crash

The Oscar-winning film was bloated, heavy-handed and too idealistic in its attempt to connect a bunch of wandering LA-type characters that yearn to feel a connection. However, Sandra shines as a hardened housewife – an unexpectedly small but delicious role for the actress. It may have been enough to convince producers that she could handle The Blind Side.

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 75%
Box Office: $55 million

11. Wrestling Ernest Hemingway

In one of Sandra’s earliest roles, she played opposite of Robert Duvall and Shirley MacLaine. Not bad for a newbie.

Rotten Tomatoes Score: $60
Box Office: $278 thousand
