'The Celebrity Apprentice' Teams Are 'Unhappy Campers'

March 21st, 2011 10:15am EDT
'The Celebrity Apprentice' Teams Are 'Unhappy Campers'
Week Three of The Celebrity Apprentice brings with it the big question that audiences are flooding the Internet to ask: will the Donald continue to encourage and reward the bullies of the teams? Weeks One and Two quite clearly showed that Richard Hatch, Star Jones, and even dowager Dionne Warwick, are using the series to pump up their own sadly deflated careers, instead of putting the charities, for which they are nominally playing, to the forefront.

But this week, Richard, Star and Dionne flew way under the radar. The challenge: create an outdoor camping experience – “Camping in the 21st ...

Real estate mogul-turned-reality TV star Donald Trump turned down the opportunity to include Lindsay Lohan as a contestant on the new Celebrity Apprentice, because it's "not the right time" for the troubled actress.

Can 'The Wolfman' Live Up To These Werewolf Movies?

February 12th, 2010 1:11pm EST
The Wolfman
The Wolfman, inspired by the classic Universal film, premieres in theaters today. It continues the tradition of films based on lycanthropy since Werewolf of London in 1935. There has been a plethora of werewolf films since, and here are some particularly memorable ones.

Dog Soldiers: Like 28 Days Later, Dog Soldiers was a gritty horror movie from overseas that helped resurrect the genre for another decade. Dog Soldiers also helped boost its director's career - Neil Marshall has since directed horror films The Descent and Doomsday. 28 Days Later's director, Danny Boyle, has since helmed h...

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music

July 1st, 2009 11:15am EDT
Shocking music deaths
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.

Regardless of the cause, take a look back at these musical icons that have left us way, way, way too soon - yet have left us with legacies that will live on forever. The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...

Movie Remakes & Recastings We Hope To Never See

June 8th, 2009 9:40am EDT
Mary Poppins
In the wake of the current brain-draining drive to remake just about everything Hollywood has ever had to offer, there are some films that are so sacred they should never be touched. This is a blatant retort to the deluge of watered down franchises, remakes, medium changes, etc. It ranges in levels of snark from low to apocalyptic strength.

My frustration with this extremely long trend came to a fever pitch after watching the Obsessed trailer. Anyone even peripherally familiar with Fatal Attraction could easily catch the obvious, racially spurred recasting of a classic film.

Stars Who Were Probably Abducted

Artists. They sing, dance, paint and act. Most parents would consider their child confused and misguided if they declared, "I'm going to be an artist!" and do everything possible to persuade him or her to go to college, grad school or into temping. ANYTHING else that provides a more consistent and reliable income. Among the occupations that can lead to the starving artist syndrome is the usual pairing of actor and waitress. Living off small tips might lead to the sometimes bizarre behavior of Hollywood's up and comers, but the crazy trait runs stronger in some unique actors…and crazy is wha...
