Celebrity Valentines for 2013

February 14th, 2013 8:30am EST
Adam Levine
Ah, Valentine's Day. It's a holiday all about love. While it's generally taken to be reserved for that special someone in your life, there are other kinds of love, too - like showing some love for your favorite celebrities. Here's BFTV's list of the celebrities I've fallen in love with and why I want to give them a little extra appreciation this year. Not only are they talented at what they do, but they're also pretty fantastic people.

In alphabetical order:

Jamie Bamber: I waited a couple of years to meet the Monday Mornings star, during which I heard from several mutual friends and fans...

TV Book Club: Andrew McCarthy's 'The Longest Way Home'

September 21st, 2012 11:00am EDT
The Longest Way Home
Andrew McCarthy's The Longest Way Home wasn't the book I expected it to be. It was a pleasant surprise, a touching exploration of humanity that I couldn't put down once I'd started.

I bought the book because I've been a fan of McCarthy's as an actor since high school; as he moved into other pursuits, I found I missed seeing him on my screens and wondered what else he had discovered other than acting. This book seemed as if it would answer that question, and give me some insight into a man whose work I'd loved for so many years.

I was mostly right. The Longest Way Home is an excellent intr...

Ten Films I Love That You've Never Heard Of

Brittany's Blog: This is my viewpoint, from the far end of the couch...and this weekend, I'm busy re-organizing my DVD collection. All 3,000-plus of them. But while I own my fair share of blockbusters, I also have a special place in my heart for lesser-known movies. A lot of great films fly under the radar, and as I'm moving a few of them around on my shelves, I thought I ought to share them with you.

In alphabetical order, here are ten of my favorite flicks that you probably didn't know existed, and links so you can pick them up for yourselves (which you should).

'White Collar' Recap: 'Neighborhood Watch' (3.13)

January 31st, 2012 11:02pm EST
White Collar
This just isn't Elizabeth Burke's season.

This week's White Collar has Mrs. Suit overhearing plans for a robbery thanks to a scanner Peter left at home. When nothing materializes, Peter and Neal are skeptical, but (of course) Mozzie is more receptive. He and Elizabeth monitor the scanner until they hear the same voices again...right across the street from the Burke home. The new neighbors are Ben (Matt Bomer's Magic Mike co-star Joe Manganiello) and Rebecca Ryan (former Criminal Minds star Lola Glaudini).

Elizabeth coerces Rebecca into inviting her and Peter over for dinner. Plus, ...

Celebrities That Turn 50 In 2012

January 4th, 2012 8:00am EST
Celebrities That Turn 50 In 2012
The year was 1962, John F. Kennedy was President of the United States and the cold war with Russia was in full swing as the world witnessed the Cuban Missile Crisis. Also in 1962, Marilyn Monroe died of a drug overdose at the age of 36 and Johnny Carson took over the duties of "The Tonight Show." Landmark movies that hit the big screen in '62 included "Lawrence of Arabia" and "To Kill a Mockingbird." The Academy Award winner for best picture that year was none other than "West Side Story."

We think you'll be surprised at how young many of today's popular celebrities look who were born in ...

Top Ten Worst Movie Sequels Ever

May 26th, 2011 12:00pm EDT
Transformers 2
With the two mega number twos including "The Hangover Part II" and "Kung Fu Panda 2" hitting theaters this week, it got us thinking about movie sequels of the past - good AND bad. So in a Starpulse salute to the bold and not so beautiful world of second cinematic outings, we’re going to jump feet first into both the daring and depressing realm of all things part two.

Tomorrow will feature the best of the bunch, but today’s focus is the real 'winners' of the group. (Yeah right!) A bunch of second rate, highly laughable, easily forgettable and downright detestable flicks that almost make...

What?! Good Actors, Bad Ideas

April 1st, 2011 4:05pm EDT
Shark Attack
Remember that saying "the road to hell is paved with good intentions"? Even the best actors have their misses. Here's a list of some of my favorite bad performances, miscastings, and poor project choices - all the things that land great actors in bad situations. (But I still love them, regardless.)

John Barrowman, Shark Attack 3: Megalodon (2002)

Shark Attack 3: Megalodon is the worst movie that I have ever seen. I really wish that Mystery Science Theater 3000 was still around, because this flick belongs on that list.

While no one expects brilliance from a movie called Shark Attack ...

Interview: Andrew McCarthy Is The Mastermind Behind 'White Collar'

January 27th, 2011 10:15am EST
White Collar
You now know him as Vincent Adler, Neal Caffrey's mentor turned worst enemy, on USA's hit series White Collar. For many people, myself included, Andrew McCarthy helped shape our generation as the star of such films as Pretty In Pink, Mannequin, St. Elmo's Fire, Weekend at Bernie's, and my personal favorite, Year of the Gun. In recent years, McCarthy's moved behind the camera to direct several series, including a future episode Gossip Girl. The versatile veteran sat down with us Monday to talk about his new stint on White Collar, as well as his long career and a few things about him that you...

'White Collar' 2.11 'Forging Bonds' Recap And Review

January 25th, 2011 10:00pm EST
White Collar
A lot of answers get revealed in this week's White Collar - and in the tradition of the best mysteries, giving those secrets away only makes us more interested in asking further questions.

After getting his name from Julian Larsson last week, Peter is doing some research on Vincent Adler, and it's not pretty; there are plenty of newspaper clippings on how Adler disappeared seven years ago following an elaborate Ponzi scheme. He's surprised when, among all the copy, he finds a picture of Adler with Neal in the background - surprised enough that he decides to pay Neal a late-night vis...

The long-awaited, much-talked-about flashback episode of White Collar finally hits our screens tomorrow night, and it's one to remember if only because it answers most, if not all, the questions about how the characters as we know them came to be.

The Best Four Years Of Your Life: Top 10 High School Movies

April 2nd, 2008 2:30pm EDT
Sixteen Candles
Before Lindsay Lohan became a Mean Girl and Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron became High School Musical sweethearts, Winona Ryder was a Heather and Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy were our favorite couple from two different worlds.

Today's popular teen flicks would have never existed without the high school classics that made and shaped the genre. What makes a great high school movie is the legacy they've made on generations of teenagers, despite the decade they grew up in. These are the movies with the unforgettable characters, witty lines, and the feeling of being forever young. The...
