Interview With the Vampire is one of mhy favorite movies, Seven was awesome, as was Fight Club. The rest of the stuff is solid, but not awesome in my opinion. I liked Burn after reading, Babel was overrated, Mr. and Mrs. Smith was silly fun, but not great, Button was overlong.

Depp isn't debatable, he is better than pitt. As is russel crowe. I think Clive Owen is better too. Clooney is only two years older and he is better. I guess denzel is older so I wouldn't count him or tom hanks. Leo and Jude Law are also fantastic, but I guess they might not be of "our generation."

I think he is more similar to will smith than he is to depp or crowe to be honest. I guess when it comes down to it, Pitt can be awesome, 12 monkeys, seven, 12 monkeys, fight club, but in general... ehh not so much. more of a cipher than an actor IMO.


Not mentioning Ed Norton is a crime.


leonardo dicaprio ftw imo.


Dave Chapelle [/discussion]

It's a shame it's just our generation otherwise it would be Clint Eastwood [/thread]


Clint Eastwood playing Billy Beane would be Oscar-worthy. :-L

90% of the movie will be Beane self-destructing as a prospect.

There will be lots of drugs and sex... and in the end, Giambi will forget to slide.

Maybe not.
There's no such thing as a sure thing – apparently in Hollywood, too. Only days before Brad Pitt's new movie, the $50-million-plus baseball drama Moneyball, was due to get rolling, Columbia Pictures pulled the plug on the production, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
