Brad Pitt's Double Play

Like a mid-season coaching hire for a losing ballclub, director Bennett Miller inherited an uphill battle when he was brought in as the director of a shaky project called "Moneyball," but he had two key players on his side — and both of them were named Brad Pitt.

With its half-dozen Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations, "Moneyball" is now viewed as a quality contender in the Oscar nomination race, but the sports-film-with-a-message was clearly a longshot project back when Miller stepped in following the summer 2009 departure of Steven Soderbergh, who had spent years developing the script.

I really hope Moneyball wins some kind of award. I think it was one of the best movies last year and I'm not even a sports fan...I do like baseball though.

As for World War Z...I had no idea it could be a trilogy. I haven't even started on the book. Everybody seems to be into zombie movies these days so I'm sure it will do well at the box office but I didn't think it would end up like Resident Evil and come back with a second and a third.
