Angelina Jolie: Still a Serious Actress?

In this video on EW.com, critics Lisa Schwarzbaum and Owen Gleiberman debate the film career of Angelina Jolie. Does she shine better when she has “guns in her hands and high boots” in action movies such as Wanted? Or is she best in more serious films such as A Mighty Heart or the upcoming Changeling?

But my question is: Does Angelina even have a serious film career anymore? Has her personal life with Brad Pitt and their ever growing family made anyone who just glances at the latest tabloid cover completely forget that she has won an Oscar?

I find that I will read any issue of People Magazine with the Jolie-Pitt clan on the cover. (Why not?) I still prefer Angelina Jolie, the actress.

The humantarian aspect of her life is great. But at the end of the day, Angelina Jolie is the reason a movie is good and there is no reason for me to not see a good movie. And for that reason, I don’t care if Angelina Jolie is in an action movie or a serious film. If it’s a good movie, it doesn’t matter what the genre it is (most of the time) and I will see it.

But I’m curious what you think about Angelina Jolie. Sound off below!
