Top 10 Brad Pitt Movies

5. Troy (2004)


I do not understand for the life of me why people hate this film. I’ve watched it a few times now, and I just don’t get it. What is wrong with this movie? Aside from a couple questionable performances from Orlando Bloom and Garrett Hedlund, the acting is top notch. Brian Cox in particular is such a great scum bag, playing the evil King Agamemnon. If your argument is that Troy can’t hold a candle to the source material, that’s completely absurd and unrealistic, I’m sorry. This movie delivers exactly what it promises, and has one truly powerful scene between Brad Pitt and Peter O’Toole, who acts his ass off as he pleads for his son’s body. The one aspect that always annoyed me though is how Priam is praised as this great King, yet he makes so many dumb decisions based on omens. Listen to your son Hector, Priam! For crying out loud! Speaking of which, this is definitely one of Eric Bana’s better performances. James Horner’s score is also flat out glorious. I don’t know what to tell you – I like Troy. Get over it.
