Circuit 3: Films Starring Brad Pitt


I have just one question for you: Who the hell doesn’t love Brad Pitt?

Not only is the guy one of the coolest people in the world (I mean, he landed Angelina, amiright?), but he is also one of our finest, most under appreciated actors working today. Even when he stars in a sub-par film (The Counselor, Killing Them Softly), it never seems to be because he dialed the performance in.

From his breakthrough performance in Thelma and Louise to this weekend’s big World War II release, Fury, Brad Pitt is one of those A-List actors who define the term movie star. The Academy nominated Pitt for his performances in Twelve Monkeys (1995), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), and Moneyball (2011). His sole Oscar win, however, came as a producer of last year’s Best Picture winning film, Twelve Years a Slave.

So what do you think are his best films? How about performances?

If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
