Tom Thursday – Tom Hiddleston’s Top 5 Roles

(I have not seen Crimson Peak, I Saw the Light, or High Rise, so they are not included.)

  1. Adam – Only Lovers Left Alive

This is one of my favorite films and probably my favorite Tom Hiddleston movie, even though I love Avengers. This film is so visual, and Adam is vital to that, showing the dark side both literally, though his black hair and wardrobe, and figuratively, though his suicidal thoughts and sad philosophizing. Just the way Adam walks is a great visual. The way he manages to love being alive and yet hate it at the same time is captivating, and the way Adam interacts with Eve keeps your attention throughout the film.

  1. Loki – Thor, The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World

I’m not sure there’s anything left to say about Loki. Tom Hiddleston’s performance has made Loki one of the all-time epic villains, as well as serving as a break-out role. We have seen that the character can really add to a film, as he did in The Avengers, or carry a film that isn’t quite as good, as happened in Thor: The Dark World. Loki is a very complicated villain with a wicked sense of humor, and it makes him relatable and hateable at the same time.

  1. Prince Hal/Henry V – The Hollow Crown

I’m a big Shakespeare fan, but not everyone is, and Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal of Prince Hal and then later Henry V really brought it to life, and showcased his acting abilities, making it watchable for those who aren’t big fans. Prince Hal transforms from a young man who is always in trouble, even though you kind of root for him anyway, into a responsible king who ably leads his country, even into war.

  1. Edward – Archipelago

Edward is a character in crisis, but a crisis that most people can relate to, which is a crisis of himself. Added onto that is the crisis and discomfort of dealing with family, in this case a family vacation that can sometimes have moments that are excruciating, as many people experience in real life. The film is a window into a family, even though it isn’t a family you would want to join, or even necessarily spend time with. Similar to Only Lovers Left Alive, the film doesn’t have a real plot, but focuses solely on a family and their social interactions.

  1. Freddie Page – The Deep Blue Sea

Freddie isn’t actually very likable and he says some things that are actually horrible, but the scenes he’s is are the most exciting of the film. While Hester (Rachel Weisz) is deeply depressed from the malaise of her life, Freddie seems to have what might be PTSD, or might just be a lot of repressed anger and coldness. Either way, he treats Hester terribly, and Tom Hiddleston plays the role with just the right amount of venom mixed with humor, gradually shifting to more venom and less humor as the film goes on.

I had to leave out F. Scott Fitzgerald from Midnight In Paris and Oakley from Unrelated, so here’s a little gif tribute:
