Vanilla Sky
Tom Cruise's confusing movie Vanilla Sky has been branded the most baffling film in a new poll. The 2001 movie, which stars Cruise as a playboy left horrifically disfigured after a crash, was the film which left audiences most perplexed by its plot.

According to the survey by LoveFilm.com, David Lynch's surreal thriller Mulholland Drive was voted into second place, while the sinister rabbit in Donnie Darko prompted cinema-goers to put it at number three.

The top five brow-furrowing films were rounded out by The Matrix Revolutions and Christopher Nolan's Memento.

Review: 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' Is A Storyteller's Tale For Gilliam, Ledger Fans

December 28th, 2009 1:26pm EST
The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus
Terry Gilliam is an interesting Hollywood director in that he's bizarre and not mainstream, and yet his films are so interesting and bizarre that they get critical acclaim and great notice. His started with the "Monty Python" gang and moved on to hits like "Brazil," "Time Bandits," "12 Monkeys," and "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas." He had his fair share of failures too with the odd "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" and the lukewarm critical reactions to his film "The Brothers Grimm." It was always an uphill battle for Gilliam since his movies are visually intriguing, mind bending, and n...

Brad Pitt
Today's cinemaphiles have yet to come to terms with the career of one Brad Pitt. Dismissed by most as a Hollywood tabloid star, few have openly included him in the category "Best Leading Men Of All Time" where he deserves to be.

Too many have placed too much focus on his relationships with Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, rather than confronting that which we know deep down in our hearts to be true: Brad Pitt is a great actor.

He is so great that his performances in films like Snatch (2000), Ocean's 11 (2001) and Ocean's Twelve (2004) and 12 Monkeys (1995) d...
