I'm not going to pull any punches here, the Vampire Diaries cast have all starred in some right stinkers when it comes to feature lengths films, but are there any that are actually worth watching?

Unsurprisingly, a sizeable handful of the Mystic Falls posse have appeared in at least on critically acclaimed movie that is totally worth 90 mins of your time, and here are the best of the bunch!

Ian Somerhalder - The Rules of Attraction (2002)

Character Name: Paul Denton

Other Notable Actors: James Van Der Beek, Jessica Biel and Kate Bosworth

Why It's the Best Ian Somerhalder Movie: The Rules of Attraction really showcases Ian's acting ability and you can tell he really sank his teeth into his characters psyche.

Ian is totally believable as Paul Denton and he plays the gay character with conviction, emotion and wry humor.

As a bonus feature, he also jumps around in his undies and takes his shirt off a lot.

IMDB Rating: 6.8

Nina Dobrev - The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

Character Name: Candace

Other Notable Actors: Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller.

Why It's the Best Nina Dobrev Movie: Okay, I'll admit it, Dobrev doesn't get huge amount of screen time in this movie, but it is by far the best film the beloved Vampire Diaries actress has appeared in to date.

Dobrev takes on the role of the unstable Charlie's sister, Candace, and she has a memorable moment in the spotlight in one of the most emotional scenes of this excellent Stephen Chbosky movie.

This coming of age movie is a real treat and I recommend you all watch it to see flashes of just how brilliant an actress the oft-underrated Dobrev really is.

IMDB Rating: 8.1

Paul Wesley - Before I Disappear (2014)

Character Name: Gideon

Other Notable Actors: Emmy Rossum and Ron Perlman.

Why It's the Best Paul Wesley Movie: Paul Wesley has a much bigger interest in producing and directing movies than appearing in them, so even though he has been involved in some awesome movies, his roles are often small.

I chose this critically acclaimed Indie classic because it shows us a violent side of Wesley's acting canon that is the polar opposite of Stefan Salvatore, and also because Wesley himself is exceptionally proud of the movie.

IMDB Rating: 7.2

Matthew Davis -Legally Blonde (2001)

Character Name: Warner Huntington III

Other Notable Actors: Reece Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Victor Garber.

Why It's the Best Matthew Davis Movie: Mainly because it comes as a surprise to so many fans of [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853)!

Seeing the man we know as the noble Alaric Salzman play the despicably arrogant and corrupt Warner Huntington III is great fun, and have you seen how gorgeous he looks?!

IMDB Rating: 6.2
