Jack Nicholson: 'I'm Too Old To Chase Girls'

January 16th, 2011 12:37pm EST
Jack Nicholson
Legendary Lothario Jack Nicholson has put his womanizing ways to bed - insisting it would be "undignified" to chase girls at his age.

The Shining superstar is a well known-ladies' man, allegedly sleeping with thousands of women during his Hollywood career and having five kids with four different partners.

But the 73 year old is adamant it's time he stopped cavorting with beauties in public and started behaving like a mature gentleman.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "I can't hit on a girl in public like I used to. I never thought words like 'undignified' would come into my own reflections on...

How Do You Know You've Fallen Out Of Love?

December 16th, 2010 4:59pm EST
How Do You Know
You feel a deep, seething resentment festering inside of you, and you aren’t positive, but you’re relatively certain it has something to do with that big blob of goo you used to call a man sitting across from you in your apartment watching The Biggest Loser and shoveling Doritos into his gaping maw. CAN’T HE SEE THE IRONY?!

It might be that you’ve fallen out of love. You'll want to be sure, because all relationships have their peaks and valleys.

If you’re Taylor Swift, you might realize that you’ve already squeezed as much material as you can out of a guy. It’s that time-to-move-on nag...

Reese Witherspoon: 'No Superhero Movies For Me'

December 11th, 2010 1:30pm EST
Reese Witherspoon
Actress Reese Witherspoon has ruled out ever starring in a superhero movie because futuristic films have no roles suitable for women of her age.

The Hollywood star admits the movie industry has changed drastically in the last few years and become more sci-fi oriented - but she has no intention of trying her hand at that genre.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "The movies that are being made feel different. There are a lot of really, really, really big movies about robots and things - and there's not a part for a 34-year-old woman in a robot movie.

"I've never done the superhero movie. Tha...

How Do You Know You're Falling In Love?

You look in the mirror and you're actually smiling. You walk down the "family planning" aisle at the pharmacy and almost feel compelled to buy a box of condoms, and not just to mock yourself for being so pathetically lonely. For some odd reason, you hate yourself slightly less than you normally do. Could it be you're falling in love?

From a biological perspective, when you first start to swoon for a potential mate your body is flooded with hormones like adrenaline, dopamine and serotonin. Suddenly, you want to broach the subject of marriage, stop and gawk at shop windows full of baby cl...

31 Days Of Horror: "Little Shop of Horrors" Double Feature

October 13th, 2010 3:24pm EDT
The Little Shop of Horrors (1960)
Continuing on with a similar theme from Monday is a Little Shop of Horrors double bill, first with the 1960 low-budget original, directed by a hesitant Roger Corman, followed by the 1986 film adaptation of the Alan Menken and Howard Ashman penned Off-Broadway musical. Both are funny, neither is particularly horrific, and while one has a very young Jack Nicholson, the other has Bill Murray—so it’s a bit of a toss-up as to which is the better killer plant movie.

By the late 50s Roger Corman had already hit his monster movie stride, churning out an unbelievable number of B-movies for paltry s...

Check Out 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest Ultimate Collector's Edition'

October 2nd, 2010 7:16am EDT
Cukoo
A nice rest in a state mental hospital beats a stretch in the pen, right? Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson), a free-spirited con with lightning in his veins and glib on his tongue, fakes insanity and moves in with what he calls the "nuts" in "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest." Immediately, his contagious sense of disorder runs up against numbing routine. No way should guys pickled on sedatives shuffle around in bathrobes when the World Series is on.

This means war! On one side is McMurphy. On the other is soft-spoken Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), among the most coldly monstrous villai...

Robin Williams:'I Would Do 'Batman' In A Second'

Robin Williams is urging movie bosses to cast him in the next Batman movie - because he has twice been turned down for parts in the superhero franchise.

Rumors over casting for Christopher Nolan's upcoming third superhero film have been rife ever since The Dark Knight, starring Heath Ledger as The Joker, hit cinemas in 2008 - with fans speculating over which characters will be re-introduced. Nolan is said to be considering bringing feline femme fatale Catwoman back for the new movie, along with The Riddler.

Williams is adamant he would make a good replacement for Jim Carrey, who played ...

Jessica Simpson was all smiles when she left the Ritz-Carlton hotel in New York City Wednesday wearing a Willie Nelson t-shirt. We can't help but notice that she's kind of starting to look a little "thick" around the waist again. Maybe she's trying to fit into those mom-jeans again. What do you think?

Meanwhile, Jack Nicholson has proved he's still a ladies' man by asking buxom pop star Jessica on a date. He reportedly invited the 29-year-old singer to join him for an evening together.

Betty White kicked ass last weekend on Saturday Night Live showing her fans that she still has it at the rip old age of 88 and a half. Her Mother's Day episode reached its largest TV audience in 18 months and it was no surprise considering she had an entire Facebook fan page devoted to her. After her top viewed Snickers commercail that aired on Superbowl Sunday, fans built a Facebook page to encourage the actress and NBC to host Saturday Night Live- and it worked.

An ailing Dennis Hopper shocked fans when he turned up to unveil his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday - he was sporting bandages on his head and hand.

The "Easy Rider" star is suffering from terminal prostate cancer and reportedly has just weeks to live, but he made an appearance outside the Egyptian Theater, where he was honoured with the 2,403rd star on Hollywood Boulevard.

Just last week the movie "Shutter Island," starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese, was released in general theaters. Its first weekend was a success, and the film is about two U.S. marshals who come to investigate a special hospital for the criminally insane

when one of their patients go missing. One of the marshals, Teddy (DiCaprio) believes there are nefarious things going on at the hospital and seeks to get answers about possible Nazi human experimentation. This is hardly the first (nor the last) movie to take place at a mental institute or about people with mental...

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. It's a day when lovers treat one another to flowers, chocolates, cute stuffed animals and other unmentionable goodies.

Best Movies Set In Cold Locations

Often times, weather plays an integral role in films, whether it be that it helps to set the tone, has symbolic significance, or makes a kissing scene all the more steamy, like the passionate lip-lock between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in "The Notebook" (2004), whose sexiness skyrocketed thanks to it taking place during a downpour. Sometimes the weather even takes on a life of its own, like in the film "Twister" (1996), in which the tornado acts as just as much of a protagonist as both Helen Hunt's and Bill Paxton's characters.

So now, with winter officially getting its frosty self...

The Toast Of Beantown: Boston's Best Movies

October 30th, 2009 10:32am EDT

In 1999, Troy Duffy showed audiences that New York City isn't the only major metropolitan place where mob violence and nefarious dealings happen on film. Using Boston as a backdrop for his cult hit "Boondock Saints," Duffy gave the city a gritty image that reignited interest in the area.

"Boondock Saints" follows the MacManus brothers, a pair of vigilantes who decide to carry out their own brand of violent justice on the criminals of Boston. As a proud Boston resident, I'm thrilled to announce the premiere today of "Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day," which brings the MacManus brother...

It's that time of year. You've checked out the new shows and by now you know if you love them or hate them.

Best Space Movies

The subject of space is a difficult one in terms of selecting films. Qualifying elements are somewhat subjective. Does the film have to take place in space? Must it include aliens? Does a mere reference to space, or different planets, make it a "space" film? In short, is it merely a subgenre of science fiction? Space and science fiction, while not mutually exclusive, can occur without the other.

In celebration of the release of one of the newest and most promising space films, Moon, check out a brief list of our favorite space films. What you will find below is a mix of films t...

Spotlight On The Best Big-Screen Lawyers

April 16th, 2009 10:00am EDT
Chicago
Lawyers have been around basically as long as the law has been present - even back in Ancient Rome and Greece there were men who would stand up and speak for the laws they made. Over the years the role of the lawyer has altered a few times, but it always comes back to truth, justice, and honesty ... or the exact opposite of those ideas.

Lawyers have gained a rather negative persona, either due to them wanting too much money or doing it for their own ego rather than what is right. Film often interprets reality, and so lawyers on screen are usually portrayed as either virtuous, helpful,...
