Matthew Cherry used to play football... professional football, at that. He signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2004. But Cherry made his biggest footprint of all at the 92nd Oscars.

After retiring from football in 2007, Cherry began a career in film. Thirteen years later, he took home Best Animated Short at the Oscars for his wonderful creation about a dad attempting to style his daughter’s hair for the first time. "Hair Love" has nearly 20 million plays on YouTube (and counting).

Here are the five movies that Matthew considers his favorite of all time.

Hav Plenty


The Transformers: The Movie


The Last Dragon


Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse


Love & Basketball
