This is a list of the best Brad Pitt movies, ranked best to worst - with movie trailers when available. Brad Pitt's highest grossing movies have received a lot of accolades over the years, earning millions upon millions around the world. A young Brad Pitt turned heads as Susan Sarandon's often shirtless love interest in Thelma & Louise. Unlike many lists, this Brad Pitt filmography goes beyond the top 10. While Brad Pitt has never won an Oscar for acting as of 2018, he's played beloved characters like Tyler Durden in Fight Club, Rusty Ryan in the Ocean's 11 franchise, Achilles in Troy, and Billy Beane in Moneyball. The order of these top Brad Pitt movies is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated Brad Pitt movies will be at the top of the list. If you and a friend are arguing about if he is better in Inglourious Basterds or Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, then use this list of the most entertaining Brad Pitt films to end the squabble once and for all.

What are the best Brad Pitt movies? What are the greatest Brad Pitt roles of all time? Are Brad Pitt's recent films as good as his early ones? The greatest Brad Pitt performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand. If you think the best Brad Pitt role isn't at the top, then vote it up so it has the chance to become number one.
