Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Zero Effect'

August 1st, 2014 11:30am EDT
Zero Effect
With the genuinely unfunny and uninspiring "Sex Tape" continuing to limp at the box office, I felt it was time to remind folks of the genius side of Tape director Jake Kasdan and in turn give some love to a past flick that has unfairly been given lukewarm status...welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Today’s selection is one of my all time personal favorites. A combination of an incredible screenplay, decent direction and some career best performances, it’s a film that fell through the cinematic cracks and truly earns the right to be called a hidden gem. Quirky detectives, captivating blac...

10 Pairs Of Stars Often Confused For Each Other

10 Pairs Of Stars Often Confused For Each Other
Have you ever watched a movie thinking that one of the stars was someone else? Well, it probably happens a lot with these 10 stars -- in fact, they probably get recognized on the street and asked about movies they weren't even in.

There are even stars who don't look that much alike that are easily confused.

Consider Bill Pullman. The star of such hit films as Dumb And Dumber and Twister -- er, wait a minute, that was Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber and Bill Paxton in Twister (okay, so this isn't a pair of stars, it's three).

Bill Pullman became a recognizable face thanks to Mel Brooks' c...

Patrick Fabian
Actor Patrick Fabian has some "Big Love" in his life - he is a first-time dad. The TV star and his wife Mandy Steckelberg welcomed daughter Abbey Ray into the world on Wednesday.

The "Big Love" star and his wife picked the name because they're both huge Beatles fans and love the Fab Four's "Abbey Road" album.

Fabian is awestruck after witnessing his partner go through the wonders of labor. He tells People.com, "Being a father for the first time is fantastic. My love and admiration for what women can do has gone up 1,000 per cent."

Not One, But Two Sequels In The Works For 'Independence Day'

March 30th, 2010 6:34pm EDT
Independence Day
It appears that Will Smith will be back to save the United States from aggressive and revenge seeking aliens for not one, but two "Independence Day" sequels. The buzz is beginning to pick up fast, as rumors of the sequels started months ago and it seems like "Independence Day" is on the brink of an anticipated return to theaters.

This past November, director Roland Emmerich told MTV that the sequels were in development, and now it look likes Will Smith is on-board to dust off the pilot uniform and resume his role as Captain Steven Hiller.

"Independence Day" was a major success when it pr...

Ben Stiller in Greenberg
When it comes to Ben Stiller’s comedic roles, he tends to play dimwitted characters that are either totally bumbling or overly self-assured. Most people do not realize, however, that Stiller can also convincingly portray serious characters as well as his silly ones.

In preparation for his new dramedy “Greenberg” about an unemployed New Yorker searching for a new direction in his life, check out Stiller’s three greatest serious roles and three comedic ones:

Best Film & TV About Alien Invasions

August 17th, 2009 2:39pm EDT
X-Files
For centuries human beings have considered the world beyond Earth and wondered if there was life outside of what we know. There have been essays, books, movies, television, and plenty of conspiracy theories about the existence of aliens or extraterrestrial life.

In the past 50 years or so pop culture has been fascinated by this idea and what would happen if the alien nation found its way to our Earth. Would they be like Star Trek, some hostile and some friendly to humankind? Or would they be like Aliens and plan to tear the flesh off our bones?

With ABC bringing back a TV series abo...

Best Space Movies

June 12th, 2009 9:53am EDT
Moon
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...

Bill Pullman Discusses 'Phoebe in Wonderland', Looks Back At 'Independence Day' And 'Spaceballs'

March 5th, 2009 10:23am EST
Bill Pullman
Sometimes what is brutally obvious to an outsider can, and does, leave the closest to a situation heartbreakingly oblivious. Phoebe in Wonderland dives head-first into this very scenario and the conflicting choices of treating a disorder by over-medicating, under-medicating or the act of self-medicating. By enshrouding oneself in a project that they love so dearly, even the symptoms of that disorder get lost in the axis of that passion.

Elle Fanning, Felicity Huffman, Bill Pullman, Patricia Clarkson and Campbell Scott steer this story down to the basic human elements of a parent's love...

Separated At Birth? Stars Who Look Like Other Stars

August 1st, 2008 8:45am EDT
Idina Menzel & Penelope Cruz
Ever hear the theory that everyone has a twin? Some believe that each and every person has a double somewhere on Earth. Whether that theory is true is debatable. However, it's uncanny how some celebrities resemble each other. Sometimes it's an obvious trait: similar hairstyle, body type or facial features. Other times it's more subtle: similar roles or names.

Whatever the reason, the following stars have something about them that makes them look like another famous somebody. And that's not always a good thing.

1.) Perhaps it's the enormous beer gut that makes this trio seem r...
