    Yes, you can use the name as an adjective, but you still don't hyphenate it.

    It's a Brad Pitt movie.

    Re: adjective

    sorry mike, last question...so it's both correct to say


    1. I like all Brad Pitt's movies.

    2. i like all Brad Pitt movies.

    I mean,Is there a difference between the two..one is possessive...and do I have to make the word movies plural because of the word all?thanks!

    Yes. The first one can also be "all of Brad Pitt's movies".

    They have the same meaning. Yes, "movies" is plural because of "all".
