The late, great James Gandolfini will always be remembered as Tony Soprano -- and it’s unquestionably his best role -- but he was also one of the best character actors in movies. After he exploded on the scene with ‘The Sopranos’ he was asked to do meatier roles in films, but as a television star transitioning into cinema, he often made films that weren’t big hits or didn’t attract much attention

Anyone who follows the box office will look upon this weekend's results and feel strong pangs of deja vu. Isn't this the same thing as las week?! Pretty much, yeah. The vast majority of the top ten stayed in the same position as last weekend thanks to an incredibly weak crop of new releases, making these some of the strangest box office numbers seen in 2012.

Retro Rental: Seeing ‘Killing Them Softly’? Check Out ‘The Assassination of Jesse James’ Instead

Brad Pitt and director Andrew Dominik's 'Killing them Softly' opens this weekend, and it's a film I consider as strained as it is strong -- for every great performance there's a heavy-handed bit of symbolism, and all the subtext is pretty much text. But it -- and a recent Variety article pondering if movies are too long (and, by the way, uh, the answer is "No," thank you very much) -- sent me back to thinking about 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,'  Pitt and Dominik's excellent, overlooked previous 2007 release.

‘Killing Me Softly’ Review

Killing Them Softly
The Weinstein Company

Killing Them Softly’ has a lot of characters but just one motivation: money. Everyone we see is after the almighty dollar. An low-level mobster hires two men to knock off an underground poker game; one of the thieves wants to use his cut to buy heroin he can sell for more cash. The mob wants the dough from the poker game back so they hire a hitman to find and kill the thieves. He’s after a payday, too -- and when he collects it, President Obama is on a television in the background, delivering his election night speech from 2008 when he proudly proclaimed that we are a nation of one people from a collection of United -- rather than red or blue -- States. The hitman, Jackie (Brad Pitt) isn’t buying it. “One people?” he scoffs. “A myth created by Thomas Jefferson,” who didn’t really believe all men were created equal; he was a slave owner who didn’t want to pay any more taxes to England. “America isn’t a country,” Jackie continues. “It’s a business.”

Brad Pitt Almost Says the Title ‘Killing Them Softly’ in Latest Clip

Brad Pitt
The Weinstein Company

Titles mean a lot, and it's easy to understand why Andrew Dominik's genre thriller 'Cogan's Trade' had its name changed to 'Killing Them Softly.' With violence implied from the title, it now sounds more like genre fare than a misspelled sequel to an old Clint Eastwood film. What we didn't know was that star Brad Pitt nearly says the title in the film. And you can see if for yourself in this new clip.
