Abraham Lincoln and Joan Of Arc are a couple examples of the crazy characters that Bill and Ted meet. This movie is a hilarious cult classic that is still being watched and enjoyed today.

#4 – Constantine (2005)

Warner Bros

It took inspiration from other sci-fi movies like Blade Runner and The Ghost In The Shell but made a completely original film. This is the movie that cemented Keanu as one of the all-time greatest action stars.
