Brad Pitt’s 10 Best Performances

Brad Pitt’s 10 Best Performances
This shouldn’t be news to anyone by now, but Brad Pitt is having a bit of a year. We probably should have seen it coming — after all, this is a guy who’s never been satisfied with his own legend.

After emerging as a sex symbol and exploding to become one of the movies’ biggest names, Pitt could have run out the clock as a fading star who showed up to collect a check whenever the price was right. But towards the end of the last century, it started to become clear that he wasn’t interested in being remembered as a tabloid cover model. Roles in films like “True Romance” and “Se7en” revealed a curious actor who was happy to test the boundaries of his talent, and his work in “Fight Club” and “Ocean’s Eleven” found him weaponizing his star power in arrestingly different ways.

I Watched Top Gun with Val Kilmer at a Military Base

I Watched Top Gun with Val Kilmer at a Military Base
I'll just get this out of the way up top, but know that I'm going somewhere with this; I've never liked Top Gun. Naturally, those lovers of the 80s classic are welcome to sharpen those pitchforks now, but hear me out. I watched the movie once in my youth and a whole lot of mainstream 80s pop culture just missed the mark with me in my earlier years. I had never taken the time to revisit the 1986 fighter pilot flick that cemented Tom Cruise as a superstar and helped to put Val Kilmer on the map. But I recently revisited the movie in a pretty special setting and, admittedly, I get it now.

The Alamo Drafthouse recently put on one of its Rolling Roadshow experiences for Top Gun. Essentially, the theater chain picks a movie, then screens said movie at a location that ties into it and tapers an experience to tie it all together.

‘Euphoria’: How the Casting Directors Discovered So Many Blazing Breakout Talents

One after the other, HBO’s incendiary new series “Euphoria” unveils acting discoveries. Exciting ones. Plus-size model and Instagram phenomenon Barbie Ferreira sizzles as zaftig Kat, who prefers controlling her virtual online sex partners to the vulnerability of building an intimate rapport with a real boy (Austin Abrams). “I don’t do virgins,” she tells him, not long after painfully losing her own maidenhead at a blowout party.

She is among several breakouts in this series created by showrunner Sam Levinson (the ex-addict scion of Hollywood royalty Barry), who wowed Sundance 2018 with hacking thriller “Assassination Nation,” which Neon picked up for $10 million (it grossed $2.5 million domestic). For “Euphoria,” Levinson hired again his “Assassination Nation” casting team of veteran Mary Vernieu and Jessica Kelly (Chrystie Street Casting).

Of course, their job is to give the showrunner options to choose from before HBO finally approves. But it’s unusual for casting directors

A Beginner’s Guide to Quentin Tarantino

In our latest beginner’s guide, Tom Jolliffe looks back at the films of Quentin Tarantino

With the recent Cannes premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s latest magnus opus, I thought it high time that the latest directors beginners guide focused on the cinematic legend. An auteur of invigorating flair upon breaking in, with an unconventional approach to the system, Tarantino appears to have had carte blanche since his debut. Such was the strength of his Reservoir Dogs screenplay, he managed to convince heavy hitters like Harvey Keitel to come on board, and despite the low budget, find a large audience. It was a long way from the days of working in a video store, or picking up dog shit off the beach whilst working as a production assistant on a Dolph Lundgren workout video called Maximum Potential. It didn’t take long for Tarantino to realise his maximum potential.

Dennis Hopper movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Blue Velvet,’ ‘Easy Rider,’ ‘Hoosiers’
Dennis Hopper would’ve celebrated his 83rd birthday on May 17, 2019.
