Brad Pitt

Hmmm I’m not buying that gravely voice Brad Pitt is trying to do.  I don’t really know what to think about the movie from that trailer, but the subject matter seems up my alley so I’ll likely watch it regardless.

On Netflix May 26th.  Pretty wild that Netflix produces such high budget stuff now.  I love it.

Thoughts?

The 2nd trailer for the quick-zombie movie World War Z:

Despite the confusing Chanel No. 5 ad he did (for without a doubt boat loads of cash) Brad Pitt is still on the top of my list of awesome Hollywood actors.  The guy is vocal about his support for firearms, and he built his wife Angelina Jolie a $400,000 shooting range as a wedding present.  Top that…

World-War-ZThe release date for World War Z is June 21st.  I am told the original Max Brooks book which the movie is based on is worth reading (the Amazon reviews back that up), so you might want to check it out.

If you missed the first trailer you can check it out here.

Brad Pitt vs Zombies:

Although the movie topic is zombies, I’ll definitely see because I think Brad Pitt is a great actor and an awesome human being (as long as you overlook his terrible Chanel No. 5 ad *smh*).

At least the zombies are the quick type!  That should make them more interesting.

Release Date: June 2013

Thoughts?  I see it’s based on a book by Max Brooks.  Is the book worth reading?

I like Brad Pitt more and more every time new info comes out about him.

DailyMail interviewed him and asked some hard hitting questions about his thoughts on guns, gun laws, violence etc.. and here are some of his answers:

When asked about violence in film, specifically Killing Them Softly (one he produced):  

“It’s a violent world we live in, I don’t agree with trying to hide that or cover it up.”

Interestingly enough the article states that was before the Aurora CO James Holmes killings, and Pitt stood by what he said when they asked him the question again after.

He doesn’t believe US gun laws should be changed:

America is a country founded on guns. It’s in our DNA. It’s very strange but I feel better having a gun. I really do. I don’t feel safe, I don’t feel the house is completely safe, if I don’t have one hidden somewhere. That’s my thinking, right or wrong.

I got my first BB gun (a type of air gun) when I was in nursery school. I got my first shotgun by first grade (aged six), I had shot a handgun by third grade (aged eight) and I grew up in a pretty sane environment.

I was in the UK when the shootings happened and I did hear the discussion about gun control start again, and as far as I know it petered out as it always does.  It’s just something with us. To turn around and ask us to give up our guns… I don’t know, we’re too afraid that we’re going to give up ours and the bad guys are still going to get theirs. It’s just in our thinking. I’m telling you, we don’t know America without guns.

If you have time you should read the entire article over at DailyMail.  Also noteworthy is the fact that Pitt apparently spent £250,000 (~$400,000) on a shooting range and armory at their Southern France house (hahah yea definitely enough room for one here), as a wedding present for his fiance Angelina Jolie.

What’s not to like about this guy?
