Brad Pitt is arguably Hollywood’s hunkiest actor, and women have been swooning over his feature films for more than 20 years. It’s hard to believe, but Mr. Pitt is actually 45 years old! He’s got a body that most men a couple of decades younger couldn’t hope to attain if they spent 12 hours a day in the gym. What’s more, he has the acting ability to back the good looks up. If Hollywood has an actor that comprises the total package, it’s probably Brad Pitt. Here are his top 5 movies, all available on satellite TV.
Fight Club: If you haven’t seen Fight Club, stop reading and immediately head to the nearest video rental store. Based on the book by Chuck Palahniuck, Fight Club pairs Pitt with Edward Norton. Fed up with the garbage that his dreary 9 to 5 existence provides, Norton’s character is seduced by Pitt, and the two create a league where ordinary men can go and beat the crap out of each other. The story takes off from there, not stopping until fireworks erupt at the end of the movie. We’d tell you more, but the first rule of fight club is, you don’t talk about fight club.
The Oceans’ Series: Oceans 11, 12, and 13 all follow roughly the same plot. That’s why its so amazing that Pitt (and his surrounding cast of star studded actors) have kept the sequels so fresh. They’re all must-see films, and definitely recommended in high definition for the action scenes.
Snatch: If you watched this scene with a blindfold on, you’d never believe that Pitt was actually involved. His normal accent is so disguised that it’s almost as if he’s not on camera. Speaking in a thick Irish (for lack of a more concise name) brogue, Pitt entertains as a gypsy with connections deep in the London underground. Snatch is a winner, for sure.
Troy: If you’re a woman, you might as well watch this one with the sound off, because all you’ll want to see is Brad Pitt in antique body armor. Hollywood rumors say that Pitt trained in the gym for almost 3 months straight to attain the near perfect body you see on screen. This film is certainly a worthy addition to his catalogue, with great action scenes that will more or less blow up your HDTV. As the famous warrior Achilles, Pitt carries the film well.
Mr. And Mrs. Smith: This one is more of a dud, but it served one important purpose: introducing Pitt to Angelina Jolie, who he later married. As a married couple undercover as spies, the two dance across the screen. Critics largely panned the movie, but you would be wise to at leave give it a shot.
