Brad Pitt's Best Movies

Summary

Today he's one of the most bankable movie stars in Hollywood, and one of the few actors audiences will pay to see no matter what sort of role he's playing -- whether it's action, drama, or comedy the script calls for, having Brad Pitt's name above the title is about as close as anyone can come to a guarantee for a hit film. Not so long ago, however, Pitt was just another good-looking dude with enough gumption to work his way into a steady stream of TV shows and bit parts in movies. He's come a long way, for sure, and to celebrate his latest starring role -- in Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly, opening this weekend -- we decided the time was right for yet another Brad Pitt edition of Total Recall!

Clearly, the bitching just indicates you can't make a top ten for Brad Pitt. His career has been that good. I noticed the same thing when they had the Top 10 Tom Hanks movies.

"An actor doesn't have many oppurtinities to work with Quentin Tarantino", try telling that to Samuel L. Jackson.

No curious case? That one should be in place of true romance at least

I wouldn't put it so bluntly, but I am inclined to agree with you.

I agree, but The Curious Cage of Benjamin Button deserves a spot as well. Great movie, great performance.

The Tree of Life was the best movie of last year, in my opinion.

I agree, I gasped when he wasnâ??t nominated for Best Supporting Actor for The Tree of Life. Of course all five nominees are deserving, but Brad Pitt really needed both the Actor and Supporting Actor nods, in my opinion.

Agree as regards to "Jesse James", one of my favorite movies form the last decade. As much as I adore the Coens I think very little of "Burn After reading", a rare missfire in the Coens filmography. But Pitt's performance on it is great, though.

I watched the movie three times in the opening week. Now I watch every other six months.

BTW, I strongly suggest reading the book (if you haven't already) since it chronicles Ford's exploits after Jesse's assassination that the movie does not cover (maybe the extended and unreleased version of the film focuses on that part of the novel). The last part of the book is about 150 pages long and is entirerly devoted to ford's life after his murderous and coward act.

I've been meaning to read it. It has a reputation for being exhaustively researched. I love everyone in "Burn" - Malkovich (the Russians?), Clooney (I'm not really equipped to mold hard plastic), McDormand (There's always the Chinese!), Swinton (I do not Hammer!), JK Simmons (the Russians?). I think it was a great film, and I laughed all the way through it.

I though all the actors on "BAR" where great, but the Coen's script and direction felt very off. I had loved all of the Coen's previous screwball comedies (except the remake of "Ladykillers", so it was odd for me to feel like they failed on a genre that they allways excelled on.

Jesse James was a boring movie, doesn't belong anywhere near his top 10. My favorite Pitt performance was in 12 monkeys. he was great!

I think "Jesse James" is an excellent film, and one of the best films in Brad Pitt's career.

Ironically, the films were written by the same person, Eric Roth.

WOW, Fight CLub in last place and Thelma n Louise in 2nd? Aru u serious rotten tomatoes? No Legends of the Fall? Are we still talking about actingwise or moviewise. Cause also, Burn after Reading should be there.
By the way, he was great in Snatch.
Rotten list.

Legends of the Fall was one of the most bloated, overrated, tiresome and BORING films ever put out in the -90s. Aside from its Oscar-winning cinematography, it has nothing; hell, I'd rather watch OUT OF AFRICA.

Tree of Life wasn't a bad film, but its too pretentious, I love how it looks, but it drives me insane with its "LOOK AT ME!! IM ART!!!" attitude. Not holding that against the cast or the director. Its a well made film, but its too self indulgent.

Perhaps the director should be held to that, though, given how Terence Malick edits all of his films himself and has direct say on how his film appears to audiences. It does focus a bit too much on scenery, but I will say that Brad Pitt managed to craft a very endearing amount of emortion from the bits that he appeared in.
