5 Best Most Watched R-Rated Movies

Joker (2019 )

  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Written by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy
  • Genre: Psychological thriller
  • Release date: August 31, 2019
  • IMDb Rating: 8.4/10

No wonder Joaquin Phoenix bagged his academy award for this 2019 psychological thriller because his performance was simply mindblowing. Even Heath Ledger fans couldn’t help but agree that 2019’s Joker did full justice to the iconic character of Joker of DC, for whom we all have a love-hate relationship since its origin. The film gives a deep insight to the origin of the villain in which Phoenix acts as Arthur, a loner who gets bullied throughout his life. His loneliness and constant unhappiness make him turn into everyone’s worst nightmare turn true. As anarchy hits the distant city of Gotham, Arthur emerges out as the Joker, unstoppable and uncontrollable.

Deadpool (2016)

  • Directed by: Tim Miller
  • Written by: Rhett Reese
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand
  • Genre: Action, Adventure
  • Release date: February 8, 2016
  • IMDb Rating: 8/10

Deadpool is an unforgettable character and is quite popular among teens and tweens. What made this swift superhero popular was the original movie of Deadpool which still holds the charm it did when it got released. The goofy Deadpool is actually a disfigured outcome of a twisted experiment, looking out to seek revenge for those responsible. Deadpool could indeed give you a good time while watching, but beware of the intense f-bombs and drug abuses that could be thrown out to you.

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Written by: Kelly Marcel
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Jennifer Ehle, Marcia Gay Harden
  • Genre: Erotic Romantic Drama
  • Release Date: February 9, 2015
  • IMDb Rating: 4.1/10

Arguably the most romantic movie of all time, the fifty shades trilogy original did wonders when it made its way to the cinemas. The film has received mixed opinions from many people, but no one could deny that its execution was wonderful. The soundtrack, the screenplay and Dakota Johnson’s portrayal of Ana made anyone fall in love with the trilogy. If you are a hopeless romantic, then the movie is just the thing that you would definitely enjoy. It is erotic, sensuous and of course, rated r.

The Revenant (2015)

  • Directed by: Alejandro G. Iñárritu
  • Written by: Mark L. Smith
  • Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter
  • Genre: Adventure
  • Release dates: December 16, 2015
  • IMDb Rating: 8/10

The Revenant is one of the most popular works of DiCaprio even today. The movie that made us say goodbye to the Leonardo DiCaprio oscar meme, this epic r rated movie focuses on a fur trapper Hugh Glass and is a story of survival and hope. Filled with some gruesome scenes that could make you scream in awe, the movie makes sure to give you a good time while watching. It is powerful, overwhelming, violently intricate and most importantly, raw.

Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Written by: Simon Beaufoy
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Freida Pinto, Madhur Mittal, Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan
  • Genre: Drama
  • Release date: 30 August 2008
  • IMDb Rating: 8/10

Taking a deep look into Indian poverty-driven matters, slumdog millionaire is the story of an Indian Muslim Jamal, a contestant of Kaun Banega Crorepati (the Indian Version of who wants to be a Millionaire). Accused of cheating on his way of answering each question correctly, Jamal’s bitter yet aspiring life story comes to light through his own words. The movie has some gruesome depictions of violence, drug abuse, child trafficking and whatnot. Its plot is pretty dark as well, but overly entertaining without any doubt.

5 Worst Least-Watched R-Rated Movies

ATM (2012)

  • Directed by: David Brooks
  • Written by: Chris Sparling
  • Cast: Brian Geraghty, Alice Eve, Josh Peck, Mike O’Brien
  • Genre: Horror, Thriller
  • Release date: April 6, 2012
  • IMDb Rating: 4.7/10

Another horror movie of cliche spiteful characters, ATM is the story of a trio’s trials and tribulations in order to survive the creepy hooded figure that keeps on lurking outside. The movie’s thrill and suspense come to a sham with its poorly written dialogues and horror execution. It is plainly stupid and bad, with all of the potentials of its storyline wasted to the core.

The Informers (2008)

  • Directed by Gregor Jordan
  • Written by: Bret Easton Ellis
  • Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger, Winona Ryder, Mickey Rourke, Jon Foster, Amber Heard, Rhys Ifans, Chris Isaak
  • Genre: Drama
  • Release date: October 2008
  • IMDb Rating: 4.9/10

Set in the wacky times of the 80s’, The Informers is nothing but a disastrous output of the Easton Ellis novel. Surrounding Los Angeles, this movie chronicles the lives of money-ridden lords with habitat including Drugs and Power. These lords are petty and sorrowful, which works as a major turn-off for the film. In a Web of interrelated stories, the film fails to stand up to its complexity and proximity.

Captivity (2007)

  • Directed by: Roland Joffé
  • Written by: Larry Cohen, Joseph Tura
  • Cast: Elisha Cuthbert, Daniel Gillies, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Michael Harney, Laz Alonso
  • Genre: Horror
  • Release date: 13 July 2007
  • IMDb Rating: 4.6/10

The movie actually had a good concept but failed to maintain its standards throughout its course. The horror movie is about a fashion model held captive in a deep long cellar with no mode to escape. With her is Gary, a young man and a fellow captive. No one knows about their kidnapper, who tortures them throughout the course. The movie could have had a strong impact on its viewers, but sadly, all of its good writing had gone to waste because it failed to hit viewers right in the feels.

Fifty Shades of Black (2016)

  • Directed by: Michael Tiddes
  • Written by: Marlon Wayans
  • Cast: Marlon Wayans, Kali Hawk, Affion Crockett, Jane Seymour, Andrew Bachelor. Florence Henderson
  • Genre: Comedy
  • Release Date: January 29, 2016
  • IMDb Rating: 3.5/10

A spoof parody of Fifty shades of Grey that failed its purpose. The film has some funny moments but overall it is not something that would not leave you on the floor laughing. Although it tried hard to have a funny outtake on the erotic drama, it failed miserably. After getting their money wasted on this forced comedy with no sense, hardly anyone could be so daring to rewind and replay which is no less than torture itself.

The Pyramid (2014)

  • Directed by: Grégory Levasseur
  • Written by: Daniel Meersand
  • Cast: Ashley Hinshaw, Denis O’Hare, James Buckley, Daniel Amerman
  • Genre: Horror
  • Release date: December 5, 2014
  • IMDb Rating: 4.6/10

You cannot help but laugh at the “scary” monster that pops out of nowhere in this loose movie of a loose story. We all admit that pyramids are pretty cool, but they are not the only thing that could keep a movie going, and this r rated movie is a perfect example of the same. It is painfully boring with obnoxious jumpscares and a monster that does not scare you an inch. No wonder it was average at the box office. If you are someone who is really into pyramids and stuff, then the movie could hardly be a one-time watch, other than that, it is simply not worth it.
