When Method Man mentioned to MTV News last September that he Ghostface and Raekwon were gearing up to release a collaborative album, anticipation started to mount. With arguably three of the most popular Wu-members collaborating, director Rik Cordero wanted to make a movie out of the event. When Def Jam commissioned the music video director to make three trailers for the album he drew inspiration from director David Fincher’s "Se7en."

Yesterday, MTV's Eric Ditzian ran through five of the best movie gifts -- which is to say, gifts given in movies -- a person could ask for. From Buzz Lightyear in "Toy Story" (personally, I'd prefer a TurboMan from "Jingle All the Way") to the self-lacing Nike sneakers in "Back to the Future Part II," Eric shared some great holiday gift ideas.

I'm back today with another gifts list. Except these are prezzies that you're not going to find under the tree when you stumble into the living room on the morning of December 25.

Funny might not be the first word you think of when you think of Brad Pitt, but don’t fool yourselves. He’s hilarious. That’s main thing I took from Quentin Tarantino’s "Inglourious Basterds," in which the actor plays the bloodthirsty Lt. Aldo Raine. In retrospect, Pitt’s frequently been a funny guy playing serious roles. Only in his most recent roles has he really experimented with satire and overt comedy.

To honor Pitt’s comedic edge, we’ve compiled a list of the highlights. Some of the picks might seem odd, but each role has pockets of punchy gags. Just take a look at this moment from "Inglourious Basterds" and tell me it's not funny:
