Top 10 Films With Numbers In The Title

September 26th, 2009 1:52pm EDT
9
In honor of the recent Tim Burton film 9 we're spotlighting numerals and numbers in film. What they have contributed to movies over the years goes beyond simply differentiating an original from a sequel.

For the most part this list excludes sequels. Sorry. It's just too easy. Also, much too simple are the straight up number films. But the English language loopholes are definitely abused throughout this top ten to reflect the best and, well, most viewed options. Check them out!

Eight World War II Movies To Watch Before 'Inglourious Basterds'

August 18th, 2009 10:40am EDT
The Thin Red Line
With the release of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds Friday, we're excited about what this often-perverse, slightly deranged and mostly genius mind will do with a movie about World War 2's Nazi-occupied France.

Looking back at the movies that Hollywood tackled on the same subject, most have been re-creations of bloody battles or stories of specific personalities involved, but very few ever added the comic punch that Tarantino's flick will surely carry out.

In anticipation of the film, here is a list of World War II films to watch before the release of "Inglorious Basterds" o...

When Good Movies Turn Bad: The Movie Version Of Jumping The Shark

August 13th, 2009 11:34am EDT
Funny People
Ordinarily, an article such as this warrants a spoiler alert, but since the only thing giving away plot details of the last hour of "Funny People" would spoil is a good nap, that disclaimer is null in this instance.

There's a moment in this film, about three-fifths of the way through it, when Adam Sandler's George Simmons calls Seth Rogen's Ira Wright (née Weiner), and tells him in a strange pirate voice that they're to set sail for San Francisco the next day to perform a comedy show. He then makes a funny phallus-related joke and the camera cuts away.

Has Will Ferrell's Comedy Gone The Way Of The Dinosaur?

June 12th, 2009 10:17am EDT
Will Ferrell
Once upon a time, I used to think Will Ferrell was the funniest man alive. I watched him religiously as Alex Trebek in the "Saturday Night Live" celebrity "Jeopardy" sketches, chuckling as he suffered through the shenanigans of Darrell Hammond's Sean Connery.

Ferrell's impressions on "SNL" and wacky roles in movies like "Old School" and "Anchorman" perpetually kept me laughing. His characters had this special zany quality to them that made them extremely quotable.

I personally idolized his ability to make people laugh, and I respected that a man who studied broadcast journalism...

Spy Movies: Which One Is Your Favorite?

March 23rd, 2009 10:52am EDT
Duplicity
The movie Duplicity starring Clive Owen and Julia Roberts hit theaters this weekend. In the film, Owen, a former MI-6 agent, and Roberts, a former CIA agent, work together on a project, but neither feels they can completely trust each other. The word duplicity means to conceal one's true intentions by deceptive words or actions, and the title seems very fitting. The release is sure to be one of the more popular movies of the spring, and it got Starpulse thinking about the best spy movies.

One of the most entertaing spy movies is Arnold Schwarzenegger's True Lies, where he plays ...

Underrated & Overrated Films Based On Graphic Novels

March 6th, 2009 9:41am EST
300
It's rare that commercials are actually right, but today they are when they claim that a film based on the "Most-Acclaimed Graphic Novel of All Time" will be released.

That film, and novel, is "Watchmen" of course. The movie comes from the 12-part comic series from Alan Moore ("From Hell", "V for Vendetta") that was quickly packaged into a graphic novel upon its completion. Many consider this series the greatest in the history of comics and the subsequent novel actually made it onto Time Magazine's 100 Greatest Novels of the Century List. Needless to say, there's no doubting its acc...

2009 Oscar Predictions: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

Oscars
After months of speculation, it's finally time to man up and throw down with some hardcore Oscar predictions. But before we tell you who will and should win the Oscar on Sunday night, let's address the whole secrecy notion surrounding this year's event.

You may not have heard (which is probably part of the point) but the Academy has decided to surround this year's ceremony in mystery. Mainly, they've refused to reveal who will be presenting Oscars this year and have gone so far as to forbid its presenters from appearing on the red carpet. Why? Because they think fashionistas will b...

Sometimes a single actor makes a film, and sometimes too many egos don't fit on the same screen, but when you find a group of talented actors who manage to make it look like they're having the time of their lives, then the audience wants to be a part of the magic. Chemistry can't be faked. Whether He's Just Not That Into You, starring Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Jennifer Connelly, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Connolly, Ginnifer Goodwin, Bradley Cooper, and Scarlett Johansson will be one of those remarkable collaborations remains to be seen.

Top 10 James Bond Opening Sequences

November 14th, 2008 3:04pm EST
Casino Royale
Opinions may vary about which Bond movie has the best villain (From Russia With Love), the best Bond girl (Dr. No) or the worst theme song (The Man With The Golden Gun), but one thing people can agree on is that the opening sequences have only gotten better over the years.

Here's a list of the best opening sequences of Bond films in honor of the 22nd 007 movie opening today:

A Look At All The Actors Who Have Played 007

November 13th, 2008 10:56am EST
Quantum of Solace
This Friday, Sir Ian Fleming's James Bond is back in theaters. Daniel Craig has brought a brute anger to the role that has not quite been seen before. In the very least, as we learned in the 2006 version of Casino Royale, he certainly does not care any longer how his martini is served. Craig is under contract for one more Bond film after Quantum of Solace, but what if he does not return after that twenty-third film? What will his post Bond career look like? Let's take a look at all the actors who have played 007 -- rouge film, or not -- and what their post Bond careers looked like.

GetBack Bond Ratings: Who Is The Best 007 Ever?

November 3rd, 2008 10:48am EST
Quantum of Solace
With the release of Roger Moore's autobiography, My Word Is My Bond, and the upcoming Quantum Of Solace (the 22nd film in the Official James Bond franchise), we couldn't help but ponder: Who is the best 007 EVER? It goes without saying that he has to be an international man of mystery, a bad-ass crime solver, a babe magnet. Slick, suave, and seductive. But we have our own set of criteria for the best Bond. He must also:

1. Be a snazzy dresser.

2. Have a hot Bond girl.

3. Have a bitchin' ride.

4. Have a killer theme song.

5. Have a relaxing off-hours diversion.

Sean Connery has reportedly come out of retirement to shoot a new film with Orlando Bloom. The 78-year-old has turned his back on acting in recent years and has not appeared on the big screen since 2003's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Check Out 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E' The Complete Series, Now On DVD

October 25th, 2008 7:07am EDT
The Man From UNCLE
Though not the first of TV's international-espionage series, NBC's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was one of the most successful -- and, by virtue of its September 22, 1964, debut date -- the first series of its kind to directly benefit from the popularity of the earliest James Bond films starring Sean Connery.

It was the height of the Cold War, a time when most Americans had only the vaguest understanding of international espionage. Then, in 1964, the televised spy genre exploded on the screen in the U.S. and around the world when the groundbreaking series "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." pulled t...

Best Movie Lines That Have Stuck In Pop Culture

There are some movies that live forever in the minds of humanity generation after generation. They span decades, continents, and cross racial and gender divides. What creates that certain magic is intangible, but it inevitably involves the memorable quotes that make their way into pop culture and every day speech.

These quotes have a universal quality, whether humorous or tragic, and they take you back to that exact moment in the film when Marlon Brando screams into the air or Humphrey Bogart gently touches Ingrid Bergman's chin. These iconic moments are not only remembered but consta...

'Eli Stone' Recap: Ridding The Bay Area Of Dragons Since 2008

March 14th, 2008 9:27am EDT
Eli Stone
Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) used to have visions about George Michael, the beach and church choirs. Sure they were odd, but they were also harmless. Unfortunately, those nice and fuzzy visions are now a thing of the past. This week on "Eli Stone," Eli is confronted with something much darker and deadlier - a gigantic, ferocious, fire-breathing dragon! The dragon is a nice touch, but it would have been a lot cooler if it was voiced by Sean Connery. "I am the last one!"

The dragon mystery is not one of Eli's more complex visions. The newly demoted Stone takes a break from life in his bra...

Sir Sean Connery has had surgery to remove a tumor from one of his kidneys. The former 007 made a full recovery from the operation, which took place in a private hospital in New York after doctors discovered the lump a few weeks ago. The Scottish star is now back at home in the Bahamas.

Connery, 75, said: "I was opened in five places, including a tube up my #$%^." The actor only told family and close friends about his health scare. His brother Neil said: "As far as I'm led to believe the tumour was benign. He's quite upbeat about it."
