Brad Pitt is a fantastic actor. Shit, I even almost half-tolerated his scenes in that fucking epic failure Tree of Life. However, you are right, some writers/directors just don't know what to do with him. Not quite Matthew McConaughey scenario..

I think Pitt is a mumble-mouthed actor who gets by on his screen presence, and tons of slo-mo shots of his good looks.

He was cool, if histrionic in 12 Monkeys. He was forgettable in Se7en, he was annoying to me in Snatch. (couldn't understand anything he said.) He was boring as fuck in the Mexican. (shitty movie, can't blame him). He was interesting in Fight Club, but that movie annoyed me. Pitt was horrible in Troy (another shit movie), Pitt was adequate, if seemingly bored, through the Oceans 11-12-13 movies. Burn After Reading is the worst movie the Coens ever made and Pitt was forgettable in it.
Mr. & Mrs Smith was a vanity project and he looked bored shit-less making it.

I have enjoyed Pitt a LOT in other films though. Assasination of jesse james, he was great in that. he was hilariously walking the line between cheese and mania in Inglorious Basterds.

But rob, screen presence is sort of like stage presence, it is part of an actor's skill set. Not everybody pulls it off. Interestingly, I dare say if Kristen Stewart just didn't ever say anything, she could be a decent actress because she seems to focus entirely on screen presence. I'd say the Brad Pitt doesn't always make some epic shit, but when he is at his best it is some of the best there is, and even when he's at his worst its tolerable. Look how absolutely terrible Johnny Depp's career has went? He makes unimaginable amounts of money essentially as a caricature of his Raul Duke persona, which was of course, epic. He was indeed very terrible in Seven, I'll give you that, but that flick was good enough I thought on its own. However I'd say Interview With the Vampire, Legends of the Fall, SLEEPERS, Twelve Monkeys, Seven Years in Tibet, Fight Club, Snatch (yes), definitely The Assassination of Jesse James, Babel, shit, that's enough isn't it?

I truly feel the problem is that, like Paul Newman and Robert redford, it takes a certain kind of director and cinematographer to film these actors as characters, and not as handsome demi-gods of male beauty. Personally, I think Pitt is a good actor, and capable of creating a memorable character. I just think that he got pigeon-holed.

You know how every A. Jolie film of the last 10 years is really about how to best show how pretty she is? Too many films get stuck showing us how handsome Pitt is.

I agree, definitely with some of the more recent stuff. However, that is sort of his thing. Its like Pac said to biggie, "Don't rap for the ninjaz, rap for the bitchez, becuz if you rap for the bitchez they will buy your album and the ninjaz will want what the bitchez want."

Maybe that explains why I see flashy-ass cars with their windows rolled down and some guy blasting some stupid slow-jam.

???

Seven is a great movie. Pointless? Seriously? You must have watched a chopped-up hour long TV version or something.

And the comparison to Hostel is insulting.

Take the blood out of Seven and it's still a great meditation on human evil and the complexities of dealing with that evil.

Take the blood out of Hostel and you have a half hour of boring teens dicking around Europe.

Fuck all y'all. I'm watching Seven tomorrow.

meditation on evil? Come on. It is a movie, meant to entertain, It's "meditations" are puerile and basic. It's ideas are relegated to the backseat while the "style" of it's particular grossness is what is pushed to the fore. It did that well. It was very gross, but the story? Pointless.
