So let's take a look at his top 11 films that have no wizards or power rings.

11. Come to Daddy ( Come to Daddy )

BingMag.com <b>Elijah</b> <b>Wood's</b> <b>top</b> 11 <b>films</b> <b>after</b> 'Lord of the Rings'

  • Director: Ant Thimpson
  • Actors: Stephen McHeight, Michael Smiley, Martin Danavan

  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 86 out of 100
  • IMDb rating for the film: 6 out of 10

Noorwall (Wood) Letter from his father from the age of five Has not received receives. He then goes to the remote cabin where his father (Steven McHatti) lives. Conditions change drastically after a while and the father tries to kill the son but dies after a heart attack. As the story unfolds, Norwall finds a window that leads to his real father, Brian (Martin Danavan), who is imprisoned. Norwall realizes that a fire has broken out in the beehive and that his real father has stolen some money and others will soon come to reprimand him, and the reunion of this father and son is officially on the sidelines.

Low budget and dark story The sadism of "Come to Babaei" is far removed from the adventures of Middle-earth. Wood's acting is scary and very bold, and he masters the tone of the film from beginning to end. He plays the extraordinary Norwhal, and the film shows that Wood does not need big budgets to shine.

10. The Oxford Murders ( The Oxford Murders )

BingMag.com <b>Elijah</b> <b>Wood's</b> <b>top</b> 11 <b>films</b> <b>after</b> 'Lord of the Rings'

  • Director: Alex Iglesia

  • Release Date: 2008
  • Raton Tomitose Score: 17 out of 100
  • Score IMDb to the movie: 6.1 out of 10

An American math student named Martin (Wood) He goes to the University of Oxford in England to supervise his dissertation with Professor Arthur Seldom (John Hurt). They discover a body one day and after being interrogated by the police, they both start cooperating and investigating. Every new murder has a mathematical symbol, and the victim is just a tool, and every murder only makes Martin more suspicious of those around him, especially the man who stares at him the most.

"The Oxford Murders" is a clever film that It proceeds freely with mathematical rules to demonstrate the theory that a murder is only complete if the wrongdoer is arrested. This may sound a little strange and a little unacceptable story, but it's a great movie for fans of such works.

9. Sin City ( Sin City )

  • Directors: Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez

The film has a strong cast and each of the story elements (including the characters) has a specific color. This is undoubtedly a stunning visual film and an amazing interpretation of picture books.

8. Cooties )

  • Director: Jonathan Milot

A mutated virus is infecting a high school in Fort Chicken, Illinois. The cause of this disease is an infected chicken nugget. As a result, a high school is full of zombie kids who want to eat their teachers. One of these teachers is a substitute teacher named Clint Hudson (Wood) on her first day of work. He and a small group must find a way to survive this high school and its carnivorous students.

This film is nothing short of other zombie-centric horror films and is full of special metaphors and horror scenes. The "lice" were actually produced by Wood Production Company, Specter Vision. The film certainly had no plans to win an Academy Award, but Wood gets a lot of laughs from viewers with its limited script.

7. Green Street Hooligans

  • Director: Lexi Alexander
  • Actors: Charlie Hunnam, Terence Jay, Claire Forlani

  • Raton Tomitose Score: 47 out of 100

Matthew Buckner (Wood) for carrying cocaine He was expelled from Harvard University for his roommate crime. Matthew, who now lives in London with his sister Shannon (Claire Forlani), meets Pete (Charlie Hunnam), an elementary school teacher and leader of a football fan group. It doesn't take long for Matthew to be immersed in the violence of football gangs, but one of the traitors among his new friends endangers his life. Or they look attractive. However, "Green Street Hooligans" shows the effects of death and loss and has only one real winner (which you have to watch to see). Wood shines through in this film about British stereotypes and culture, and engages in group fights in a way that does not look like a Harvard student at all.

6. Maniac ( Maniac )

  • Director: Frank Calfon

Frank Zito (Wood) who was mentally injured as a child and is now an adult He spends his days in a mannequin shop. Frank meets a photographer named Anna Diantoni (Nora Arnsder) who is interested in Frank's mannequins. The two set up an art exhibition together, and as a result, Frank feels more relaxed in life and decides to take pills to help his psychological cravings. However, he can not refrain from slaughtering and collecting the scalp collection. To just see Wood and feel the role he plays. The attention to detail in the film is admirable, and the whole work is a very technical set of precise scenes, and the views of its director, Frank Kelfon, and his team are worthy of respect.

5. Everything Is Illuminated

BingMag.com <b>Elijah</b> <b>Wood's</b> <b>top</b> 11 <b>films</b> <b>after</b> 'Lord of the Rings'

  • Director: Leo Schreiber
  • Actors: Eugene Hotz, Jonathan Safran , Boris Leskin
  • Release Date: 2005
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 67 out of 100
  • IMDb rating for the movie: 7.4 out of 10

Safran Foer (Wood), a Jew- Is an American who collects objects and She loves her family memories. A special old photo of a woman named Augustine takes him on an exploratory adventure in Ukraine, where he reconnects with things he has long lost and reconnects with his guide and new friend, Alex (Eugene Hotz). His adventure accidentally sheds light on his family's past crimes.

"Everything is clear" was Leo Schreiber's first directing experience, as well as his first screenplay. Addressing the aftermath of the Holocaust with hot humor is the key to the film's success. Wood is the best character in the film who learns a lot during his journey and we viewers naturally communicate or sympathize with him and enjoy a beautiful film.

4. Grand Piano ( Grand Piano )

BingMag.com <b>Elijah</b> <b>Wood's</b> <b>top</b> 11 <b>films</b> <b>after</b> 'Lord of the Rings'

  • Director: Eugene Mira
  • Actors: John Kyuzak , Chery More, Thomsin Egerton
  • Release Date: 2013
  • Raton Tomitoz Score: 79 out of 100
  • IMDb rating for the film: 5.9 out of 10

The greatest pianist of the era, Tom Selznick (Wood) returns to the stage after a five-year hiatus for a packed concert in Chicago. When Tom starts playing, he finds handwritten notes in his musical notes that tell him he will die if he stops playing. A sniper named Cabbage (John Cusack) instructs Tom to play the same piece of music he failed to perform five years ago, which was the reason he ended his career. Tom's wife, who is in the audience, is now under fire. Music is the key to salvation here, and all Tom has to do is not ruin it this time.

The moments when Tom tries to keep himself and his wife alive are very stressful. "Grand Piano" is a very different style from exciting works that somehow moves on the razor's edge. The film is very short, but with depth of filmmaking and atmosphere that includes a flawless orchestra, beautiful theater, and Elijah Wood as a genius and pianist.

3. I do not feel comfortable in this world anymore ( I Do not Feel at Home in This World Anymore )

BingMag.com <b>Elijah</b> <b>Wood's</b> <b>top</b> 11 <b>films</b> <b>after</b> 'Lord of the Rings'

  • Director: Mick Blair
  • Cast: May Blair, Melanie Linsky, Jane Levy
  • Release Date: 2017
  • Raton Tomitoz Score: 89 out of 100
  • IMDb points per movie: 6.9 out of 10
after the thieves, which leads to more thefts and murders, and Ruth and Tony both hate the world in which they live.

Melanie Linsky plays the role of Ruth, who speaks softly. He is a little confused, he is playing. Throughout the film, he loses his faith and trust in human beings. This film is a social interpretation and at the same time funny and shocking. Wood's hilarious circumstances as a character who has nothing to say to American bullies contribute to the sense of helplessness in the story. His role is not very heavy but it is effective.

2. ( No Man of God )

BingMag.com <b>Elijah</b> <b>Wood's</b> <b>top</b> 11 <b>films</b> <b>after</b> 'Lord of the Rings'

  • Director: Amber Sili
  • Actors: Luke Kirby, Alexa Paladino, Robert Patrick

  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 79 out of 100
  • Score IMDb to the movie: 6.4 out of 10

Bill Hagmeyer (Wood) is tasked with being one of the worst Interrogate the serial killers of American history, Ted Bundy (Luke Kirby). Bill befriends and earns Ted's respect, and in the last few years of his imprisonment, he has gained valuable information and knowledge in the field. Everyone knows that Ted is really a murderer, but no one knows why he did it.

This is a story about someone in history that we all prefer to forget. The film has two great actors who constantly complement each other in each scene. Wood and Kirby, like Yin and Yang, have good character coordination and give this very difficult biography a compelling character. "The Theologian" is the quietest film Elijah Wood has ever acted in, but it is one of his best plays.

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind )

BingMag.com <b>Elijah</b> <b>Wood's</b> <b>top</b> 11 <b>films</b> <b>after</b> 'Lord of the Rings'

  • Director: Michael Gondry
  • Actors: Jim Carrey , Kate Winslet, Mark Ruffalo
  • Release Date: 2004
  • Raton Tomitoz Score: 92 out of 100
  • IMDb rating for movie: 8.3 out of 10

Clementine Krochinsky (Kate Winslet) The memory of his friend Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) disappears from his mind and he continues to live without him. Joel tries to live with a lot of confusion, but when he realizes the truth, he decides to do the same and erase Clementine's memories from his mind. When technicians Stan (Mark Ruffalo) and Patrick (Wood) begin to erase his memories, Joel stops. It's hard to break the cycle, and Joel tries hard to never forget his true love. And it's one of those movies that you have to watch in silence. It may be hard to follow, but it is definitely worth the effort to keep up with its complex storyline. I wish more movies like that were made.
