Brad Pitt’s been in a lot of movies, but his very best role?
Sometimes, I’m surprised by what these polls reveal, but not this time. If Tyler Durden hadn’t won, I’d honestly have been shocked.
But win, he did, and with a fairly decent margin, too. Second place goes to the Oscar nominated role Benjamin Button . . . and that’s a movie I’ll have to watch someday, just to make up my own mind about it. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard quite so many conflicting opinions on a mainstream film. My interest isn’t exactly high, though, so I can’t imagine it will happen anytime soon.
Third place is a tie between Mickey from Snatch and Jeffrey Goines from 12 Monkeys. Most of the films managed to snag at least one vote, all except A River Runs Through It and The Tree of Life. I don’t even know what The Tree of Life is about, to be honest. Presumably, somewhere, there’s a tree? Hell, there probably isn’t a tree. It’s just a giant silly metaphor, isn’t it? I think I’d rather see a movie that’s literally centered around Yggdrasil.
At least Ragnarok, for God’s sake. Norse mythology is so neglected.
