Happy Birthday Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Happy birthday to this man, Dwayne Johnson, 48 today!

In one of his first movies, Welcome to the Jungle (2003) (or The Rundown depending what country you’re in), there’s a cameo from Arnold Schwarzenegger at the beginning. He passes The Rock in a club and says “Have Fun”. It was supposedly a passing of the torch from an old action hero to the new.

I remember thinking, “I can’t see it. He’s no Arnie”.

Well he might not be Arnie but he’s certainly established himself as a big presence in the film world and by all accounts is a genuinely nice guy.

I’m not a huge fan of the Fast and Furious films (in case anyone asks why they’re not on my list) but my Dwayne Johnson film recommendations are:

Welcome to the Jungle (2003)

Walking Tall (2004)

The Tooth Fairy (2010)

Pain and Gain (2013)

San Andreas (2015)

Moana (2016)

Baywatch (2017)

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

Rampage (2018)

Fighting with My Family (2019)
