"Amidst the miracle of life and the beauty of this world, it’s easy to wonder why are we left to experience tragedies and unjust fate, to ask ourselves where God is when we need him the most and to ponder why even the most graceful of this world are made to suffer.

CO - Let’s be honest… it’s always a good time to be Brad Pitt. One of the sexiest men alive, rich and powerful, and an extremely underrated actor, he’s considered a shoe-in for a Best Actor nomination for Money Ball, out on DVD and Blu-Ray this week. He’s excellent in the film, which reminded us that beyond his good looks he’s appeared in a number of modern classics worthy of mention in our ongoing series Five Great Movies.
