Last week we shared our list of the 10 greatest baseball movies of the ’90s. And at the top of that list was The Sandlot. Why? Because it is not only the greatest baseball movies of the ’90s, but one of the best achievements in cinema history (IMHO). How the Academy managed to overlook this masterpiece is totally beyond us.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that every woman needs a hot new actor to crush on. 2013 seems to be the year of hot guys, as dozens of sexy stage actors, brooding Brits and child stars who grew up a little too well seem poised to blow up in Hollywood.
So who’s going to be the next Brad Pitt or Robert Pattinson? The next Channing Tatum or Johnny Depp? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with 20 of the hottest guys you need to know for 2013.
We’re kind of loving the new indie smash, The Place Behind the Pines — the acting’s top shelf, blah, blah, but what’s really fab is that it stars super-steamy, real-life couple, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes. Which got us thinking…what are our favorite flicks starring off-screen lovebirds? Read more…
The ’90s gave us some pretty spectacular things, including the end of the Cold War, our little sister, Garth Brooks and email. These are all undoubtedly great things, but perhaps our favorite thing that the ’90s brought was a serious bumper crop of awesome baseball movies!
Happy 55th birthday, Alec Baldwin! After a period in the showbiz wilderness (remember that voicemail), Baldwin has climbed back to the top once again with his career-defining role in 30 Rock, and appearances in recent blockbusters like The Departed, It’s Complicated, Rock Of Ages, and too many more. In honor of the most famous Baldwin’s brother’s big day (sorry Stephen), we’ve assembled his 15 greatest Baldwin-isms from throughout his career. It’s the least we could do after those pics of his daughter we posted last week…Anyhow, enjoy!
The Percy Jackson series of fantasy novels is one of the most popular YA series of the last decade. After the monster success of the Twilight franchise, Hollywood went in search of the next big franchise that they could cultivate from the YA well. Some of tanked (*cough* Beautiful Creatures *cough), but the first Percy film, 2010′s Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, did well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel. Thanks to our friends over at MTV Movies, we’re excited to share the new trailer for the sequel, Percy Jackson And The Sea Of Monsters, with you this morning.
G.I. Joe fans have been patiently counting down the days until the March 29 release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation ever since it got bumped from last summer’s release schedule. Early word on the street is that director Jon M. Chu‘s movie is a bit more faithful to the comic book and cartoon origins from the 1980s than the last film, G.I. Joe: Rise Of Cobra, was.
It’s Easter time, which means people all across America are hitting the drug store to get their Paas on in time for Sunday. It’s also a time where kids all over the nation head to their local shopping mall to get in some quality time with the Easter bunny, a practice that seems to excite and terrify children in equal measure. In fact, we count ourselves among the frightened lot, as this is the time of year when giant, anthropomorphized rabbits tend to haunt our nightmares. It seems that other pop culture icons feel similarly about bunnies, creatures that seem “cute and fuzzy” (to quote One Crazy Summer) on the outside but we all know they harbor an evil, ravenous thirst for human blood on the inside (or so we fear). To wit, here is Best Week Ever’s countdown of the Top 10 Most Terrifying Bunnies In Pop Culture History.
Quentin Tarantino is the Anti-Disney. His hugely influential and popular films have featured some of the most intensely violent and twisted scenes in cinema history. Sure they were brutally hard to watch, sometimes offensive and VERY NSFW, but they go SO far over the line that you just have to sit back and watch with wonder, all the time thinking “Whoa, this guy ain’t like you and me!”
Hugh Jackman is fresh off an Oscar nomination for his work as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, but we have a sneaking suspicion he won’t be showing off his pipes in his new flick. Instead, his guns will be on full display when he returns to the big screen on July 26 in The Wolverine, which will mark the 5th time that Jackman has portrayed the most famous of the X-Men on screen (X-Men, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
