I have never loved a Clooney movie. I like Brad better-- and Fight Club of course is his best.

parissucksliterally said...

Out Of Sight is my fave Clooney Movie

Fight Club is Brad!

Love them both.

derek harvey said...

I also like 12 Monkeys, Benjamin Buttons, Seven, Thelma and Louise and Kalifornia.

Agree…on Out of Sight…love Clooney

sandybrook said...

Oceans 11 is good Meet Mr. Black is good. I think Bradley is the better actor.

FSP said...

What's in the box? What's in the box?

LooLooEasy said...

Clooney: Ocean's 11
Pitt: Fight Club

Pitt (with Fincher) >> Clooney

msgirl said...

I haven't seen Fight Club, I really should fix that! Love him in Twelve Monkeys and True Romance.

CLooney - I'm actually not a huge fan, but - oh darn it, senior moment - the Tarantino movie with him obsessed with his hair!

VIPblonde said...

Clooney: Return to Horror High
Pitt: Mr & Mrs Smith
Pitt > Clooney

VIPblonde said...

@FSP This never gets old! Love me some Shatner :)

Freya said...

The Ocean movies and Burn After Reading. They're both in all four.

I would tell you my favorite Brad Pitt movie but I'm not allowed to talk about it.

Julieh said...

Legends of the fall for brad
Out of sight for clooney

msgirl said...

Duh O Brother, Where Art Thou? that's the name!

Christopher Cruz said...

George. By a million miles. Whichever movie he wears the least in.

bluebonnetmom said...

Brad Pitt. He smiles and I forget about everything.

Zelda Zonk said...

Oceans 11 and I've been a Clooney girl since I was 11 so it works. Only one I've loved longer is RDJ

Freya said...

@VIP I agree. Pitt has a more diverse resume. Some of Clooney's movies are too much alike.

Murphy said...

One Fine Day.
Moneyball.

If he's clean shaven, I prefer Brad.

Tricia S said...

Based on the work Clooney-the Descendants, based on the film-Up in the Air

Pitt-interview w/ a vampire/River Runs through It

Jessi said...

Ocean's 11 for Clooney and Fight Club for Pitt. However, The Mexican wins for Brad's look. Damn he is fine in that movie! Too bad Julia is in it!

I prefer Brad over George.

Sugar said...

I just watched Monuments Men and George Clooney is NOT my favorite director. Super corny movie that could have been great but wasn't. I blame Mr. Clooney's directing.

Gayeld said...

Clooney - Return of the Killer Tomatoes.

Pitt - Thelma & Louise

Wee S said...

Clooney:Out of Sight- he made J.Lo look good in that.

Pitt: Mr & Mrs. Smith. Completely funny and hot.

I'd take Pitt any day. Mostly I just see Clooney playing Clooney these days.

Omar Little said...

Pitt-Fight Club

Clooney-Ocean's 11

Pitt>Clooney

Alvin said...

Clooney just seems really fake and scripted to me. Brad seems a bit fake, but he doesn't seem to take himself or his image too seriously.

mngddess said...

Used to love me some Clooney, but I dumped him for Mike Rowe.

Clooney: O Brother Where Art Thou (mah hair..)

Pitt: Mr. & Mrs. Smith & Oceans 11

Sugar said...

Plus I hate the way Clooney always has that weird head shake thing going on. Like he's a bobble head on a tight spring.

Pitt: Fight Club
Clooney: The Descendants
Pitt > Clooney

LottaColada said...

Brad Pitt: The first rule of Fight Club is: You do not talk about Fight Club

Clooney: The Ides of March

Pitt over Clooney

Uhhhh... said...

Pitt / Fight Club
Interview with the vampire is a close 2nd

Amy said...

I like more Brad Pitt movies, but he was so awful in 12 Monkeys with the over-the-top psychiatric patient eye-rolling that I really can never think of him as a good actor, I always think of that awful portrayal.

The Real Dragon said...

Brad Pitt: Seven

Clooney: Dusk til dawn

Connie Courtney said...


Neither. What loathsome choices.

Zach said...

I loved Inglourious and Up in the Air and they both came out the same year. Over time Inglourious holds up as an even stronger piece of filmmaking.

VIPblonde said...

@Lotta Word

califblondy said...

Brad's acting was good in Legends of the Fall. Mr. And Mrs. Smith was hot.

Clooney is always Clooney with his little quirks. Out of Sight was pretty good, but JLo made that movie. Don't hate.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

PITT - by a landslide
Legends Of The Fall

Thelma and Louise - I told my parents at the theater while we were watching it, "He's going to be a big star!" (Same thing when we saw Gyllenhall in October Skies)

River Runs Through It

Clooney - Rosanne. oh, wait a minute...well, yeah...that's all I remember of him

Eros said...

Brad when he was young hottt.

LottaColada said...

Yasssss!

DoctahRivenIsAHasBeen said...

@Gayeld A++ Clooney throwback. I usually say my favorite Leo movie is Critters 3.

Topper Madison said...

How can one choose from the stars in the sky?

Amy said...

I meant, I can never think of Brad as a good actor with his stupid over the top CROSS-EYED portrayal in 12 Monkeys, an otherwise outstanding movie.

And I agree with Sugar about Monuments Men -- it's a movie that stays with you forever because it's based on a true story, but the script and acting was terrible. I mean at places it played like a fucking sit-com with jokes or gags you could see a mile coming. All it needed was a laff track.

Boomer monkey said...

Seven for Pitt.

I would not stand in line for any Clooney movie.

Pitt wins.

Cheryl said...

My husband and I have both enjoyed many Brad Pitt movies. He jokes about how I waited until he left town to watch Legends of the Fall. Other than O Brother Where Art Thou, I just don't get Clooney's movies. Brad is more entertaining to watch, but he does move around a lot in his movies, like some acting coach told him not to just stand there. Clooney always looks like he's doing Joey Tribiani smell the fart acting.

SusanB said...

O Brother Where Art Thou......Clooney. Inglorious Bastards and Joe Black for Brad.

Rose Lizenberg said...

According to Michael K at DListed, George and his fiance got a marriage license in London. A reader sent in a photo.

Renoblondee said...

Clooney...Three Kings

Pitt...Interview

lmnop123 said...

I'll take a Clooney movie any day over a Pitt movie. I did like Pitt in the first two Ocean's movies and he was good in Burn After Reading.

Clooney - Out of Sight, One Fine Day, Three Kings, Fantastic Mr. Fox, From Dusk Till Dawn, Ocean's One and Two and The Descendants.

Niña Piña said...

Favorite movie includes both Pitt and Clooney: Burn After Reading...but

Pitt > Clooney

All Lace no Leather said...

Clooney over Pitt all day long.

Descendants or Up in the Air ( such a sweet movie).

kpist said...

Pitt, Legends of the Fall and 12 Monkeys

I really can't even think of a Clooney movie I love.

Bitters said...

I knew one of the enties was Canadian! This has been a recent advertisement for nighttime TV movie- George or Brad..!!!

Seachica said...

Pitt - money ball

Clooney - facts of life

I'm a superficial bitch. It has nothing to do with acting talent (I don't actually have a favorite Clooney movie). It comes down to looks and brains, so it's George by a mile

8====D KermitGossnellKnobjob said...

Clooney: Return of the Killer Tomatoes.
Pitt: Sevem, despite his presence and Goopy's.

Pitt's chosen better movies, but he is a worse actor. F word both.

Yoj said...

I think both are very limited as actors (but charismatic and photogenic, which is more important for movie stars), but have made good choices with scripts and directors.
I love 'The Assassination of Jesse James...' and 'Killing Them Softly', and I like 'Se7en', 'Fight Club' and 'Tree of Life'. But I think Pitt should focus on producing now. Something has shifted in the past few years, I don't know whether he's now disinterested in acting or vain about ageing, but he's become self-conscious on camera.
For Clooney, I like 'The Thin Red Line', 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?' and 'Fantastic Mr. Fox'. He may pick worthy projects to direct, but he's a poor director.
I'd choose Pitt as an actor, but I prefer Clooney's attitude to his fame and public persona.

Steven O said...

I can't believe it took this long into the thread before someone named "O Brother".

Frosty said...

Ocean's 11 and the Decendants for Clooney

Fight Club and Tree of Life for Brad

rajahcat said...

Clooney-The Descendants

Pitt-Legends of the Fall

Wendy Rene said...

Clooney -- One Fine Day (he was adorable in this!!)/O Brother ("Mahh hair!!")

Pitt -- Meet Joe Black (the PB scene Swooooon!!!)/Legends of the Fall

Clooney/Pitt -- Ocean's 11 ("Ted Nugent called...he wants his shirt back" lol)

rajahcat said...

oh and Clooney is slightly > Pitt

but almost dead even to me

auntliddy said...

Hands down, for Pitt, A River Runs Thru it. Haunting. I liked clooney in perfect storm. Im not chosing ; like them both.

auntliddy said...

You know what? I dint think either of them has been bad in a movie. They have been in bad movies, but they're never bad. Thats why they are stars i guess.

Chris Jurgie said...

Clooney: Dusk to Dawn (which he just happened to be in. I don't like Clooney so don't watch his movies)

Pitt: Fight Club.

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

Clooney: Ocean's 11
Pitt: 12 Monkeys, Legends of the Fall just for his hair and Julia Ormond!

Jim said...

For me it's one film for both: Burn After Reading. Clooney gets the edge in likability.

Rome said...

Good Night, And Good Luck & Seven.

PJ said...

Clooney: 'O Brother Where Art Thou' hands down without question. That movie is SUCH a great flick! (Honorable Mention goes to the wonderful 'Decsendants')

Pitt: Hmm. So many to choose from...I'd say it's probably 'Meet Joe Black' (omg, the FEELS from that film!) but 'Inglorious Basterds' is also incredible albeit in a very different way.

PJ said...

Clooney: Oh, I almost forgot the unbelievable 'Ides of March'! So, so good :)

Blasie said...

Thelma and Louise is the only movie where I liked Pitt. I have never watched another entire film that he is in and don't understand his appeal. I am drawn to Clooney like a moth to the light. I particularly like his small projects... Up in the Air, Fantastic Mr. Fox.Syriana, and my all time favorite Three Kings( where it all began for me)

Yoj said...

@Blasie
Have you heard Clooney's story about the making of 'Three Kings', re. his fight with the director David O. Russell? It reflects well on Clooney.

Sherry said...

@ msgirl, "Oh Brother.." is a Coen Bro's film...
LOVED it and it's my fav film now. also enjoyed "The Descendants".

I couldn't finish "Legends of the Fall" because it was so damn sad but damn he was hot..Favorite would be hands down "Snatch". He was so funny in that.

Don't favor one over the other.

Silkprint said...

Brad is a much better actor..I cant choose between fight club and twelve monkeys or Kalifornia . All of which he was great in. Clooney is always just Clooney

bellaluna said...

Michael Clayton, pants down. "I'm not the guy you kill; I'M the guy you PAY." Sexay! Plus, TILDA SWINTON!

Thelma and Louise.

BeckyMae said...

Pitt-True Romance

Still doesn't beat Fassy NSFW

Jennmcn said...

Meh. Can I pick neither? I'd rather watch a Simon Pegg's ginger ass make me laugh for 2 hours.

Erik said...

oceans 11, inglorious basterds, pitt.

Blasie said...

Yoj, I wasn't aware of that. I'll have to Google it. Thanks

The Enquirer said...

I don't care for either but if I had to pick one I'd pick Clooney. Brad has become just too weird lately. The kids, Angelina, the facial hair. At least Clooney always looks good and dresses well. And his movies are better than Brad's too.

Snootches said...

Me too Dragon!

Shockwave said...

Can I say Facts of Life, even though the episodes Clooney were in were the drizzling shits? Once they left Eastland, it just became weird that they all wanted to stay together and form "Edna's Edibles", wonder what of Edna's was edible and to who (Always suspected Natalie as the closet lesbian but Blair might've been hiding something with all her dates yet never finding anyone to settle down with).

Oh and can't stand either of them. Both are pompous ass holes who believe that unless you vote or think exactly like them, you are a subhuman.

MovingOn said...

I realize no one is reading his thread anymore but I have to comment.

Clooney: Dusk til Dawn, Oceans 11
Pitt: Legends, Seven, River Runs Thru It.

My Brad over George any day of the week. I actually like George, but Brad is my secret lovah. As Jen once said (on Oprah?), "I like short hair Brad, long hair Brad, all Brads."

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Prefer Clooney.

I loved Oceans 11. Let's say that's my fave for Pitt.

Good Night, and Good Luck for my favorite Clooney film.
