There's no such thing as the perfect movie. We all have our favorites and ours is only limited by the limitations of our own imagination. The great directors of the past are also responsible for inspiring us with some of the best movies ever made. Even if you don't think you have a favorite movie, the chances are good that you have at least heard of the directors listed above. Whether you loved them or hated them, they helped shape the landscape of our society and helped pave the way for the movies we enjoy today.
Two names stand out in this list of great directors. One is Wes Anderson, who of course directed the movie that everyone remembers as the year's most successful film, The Darjeeling Wedding. His other masterpiece, The Shape Of Things To Come was also a box office hit. Both of his films have been screened at the Venice Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival, which is one of the biggest film events in the world. Wes Anderson has written several books based on these films, including The Grand Budapest Hotel and Moonrise In New York. No list of the greatest film critics would be complete without mentioning his work.
No list of the greatest movie critics wouldn't include Clint Eastwood. No one can deny the greatness of his films from the past like Someone to Watch Over Me, Tombstone, and A cowboy style LA Law. No list of the greatest opening weekend movies would be complete without including Clint Eastwood's own versions of the same films. Some of my favorites are Unforgiven, Someone to Watch Over Me, and Eternal Sunshine Of Your Life. No list of the movie critics would be complete without including Clint Eastwood's version of the musical No Limits. No one can forget the classic scenes from this film, which won four Academy Awards and was one of the biggest box office hits of the year.
The late Christopher Reeve is another of the hallowed titans of our society, as well as an incredible actor who created some of the best roles of his career. His roles in all of the Star Wars flicks made him into a Hollywood legend. His best known role may be as Benjamin Afflin in the Killer Joe film series, but it was also his turn in the equally famous Meet The Parents. In terms of family films, no one forgets the brilliant comedy hit Breakfast at Tiffany's or the incredibly entertaining Arsenic and Old Mosely. No list of the greatest comedy movies ever made would be complete without the name Mr. Chris Reeve.
The late George Clooney is another of our culture's great actors, best known for his good-guy persona and for winning the Oscar for his role as Bruce Lee in the untimely death of the beloved celebrity. A list of the best actors of our time would be incomplete without the inclusion of Mr. Clooney. He also has an amazing list of roles that have been successful worldwide. In terms of family roles he has played good parts in The Damned United and Good Night and Good Luck. He has also won Grammys for his contributions to the making of both of those films.
The other great actor from the new millennium, with an incredible list of roles including that of Nurse Jackie, Adam Sandler, and Jennifer Aniston, is none other than Brad Pitt. He has been nominated three times for an Academy Award and has become one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood. This is only the beginning, as Mr. Pitt continues to star in some of the best films of our time including World War Z, Crazy Heart, and any project that come his way. The wonderful thing about Jennifer Aniston, or Brad Pitt, as he is fondly referred to, is that no matter what film role they are involved in, they always look and feeling their best. It is no wonder that they continue to reel in millions of viewers from around the world.
There is one actor on this list that is virtually unknown to the general public, and that is actor Jesse Eisenberg. Having just come off of his role as Mike Weiss in the wonderful The Social Network, Eisenberg has not been able to capture the same type of success as some of his other peers. However, with a role as good as that, there is no reason to assume that fate will never befall any of these up and comers. For anyone that is interested in the entertainment business, the rise of social network celebrities such as Jesse Eisenberg and the late Kurt Russell should be very interesting to follow. Whether or not the two actors decide to take the acting route or if they decide to make movies is entirely up to them, but either way they will be greatly missed.
Of course, there are many more names that we have just mentioned, but these are the more prominent ones at the moment. If you really want to get into acting then the first thing that you should do is start going to auditions for plays, parts, or even movies. It doesn't matter which genre that your talents lie in, you will be able to find an audition that you can do well in. If you are looking for a job in the media, the television industry, or the AV industry then you can rest assured that the sky is really the limit.
