Top Five Movies of Angelina Jolie
If anyone asks me who the prettiest actress in movies today, I will probably have a different answer for every time I’m asked. If anyone asks me the sexiest woman in movies today, even if I have seen a Salma Hayek movie lately, then my answer will still be Angelina Jolie. I’m not saying she isn’t pretty. She is. But like Salma, her beauty doesn’t come from her looks as much as her sexuality. She’s so sexy… (How sexy is she?) She’s so sexy that I think she could seduce a gay eunuch.
When I think of “Pushing Tin,” it’s not about Billy Bob Thornton or John Cusack or air traffic controllers, but it is about Angelina looking great. Fortunately she looks great in everything, so there is a wealth of movies to choose from when selecting her top five. I’ll make a note that I’m leaving out the underrated “The Good Shepherd” right now and it hurts a bit. It doesn’t hurt as much to leave out “Playing by Heart,” but goodness, did Angelina look good in that.
However, she looks the best in this made for TV movie. I can’t tell you really anything about the plot of this, I just think, wow, Angelina is hot and nekkid and her co-star, Elizabeth Mitchell (“Lost”!) isn’t bad either.
If you set out to create a movie to attract women and men in equal numbers, then Angelina and Denzel Washington side by side tracking down a serial killer is about the perfect way to start.
Well, perfect until you consider the pairing of Angelina and Brad Pitt in a shoot-em-up action flick. In fact, I think the only way to not make money with Angelina and some attractive guy would be to put them together in some period piece or historical epic.
Which is what happened with this movie about Alexander the Great starring Angelina and Colin Farrell. At almost three hours in length, it isn’t surprising that it only grossed about $35 million in the U.S. compared to a budget of $155 million. However, if you have Oliver Stone direct it with a great supporting cast, it means that a lot of people missed out on a pretty cool epic.
No question though, this is Angelina’s best job of acting (and she deserved the Oscar.) Like I said in my look at Winona Ryder, it’s a great cast of girls that all do a great job.
Agree? Disagree? Which movies would make your Angelina Jolie top five?
