Stewart said of his new series: "This new character, Walter Blunt, is not at all like Avery, thank God, because this is live action and I am a Knight of the Realm. Blunt is, however, much smarter than Avery and has his...

16 Hollywood Stars & Their Supercars
Honda. Ford. Chevy. These are all household names. We see them every day driving to work, or while going to grab a cup of coffee on the corner, or from our office window. They don't do anything special to really grab your attention - they just exist to get us from point A to point B. And for most of us, that's just fine.

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

Venerable actor Patrick Stewart has bestowed the knowledge of the secret art of the quadruple take to jazz singer girlfriend Sunny Ozell.

Ozell uploaded a video of Stewart teaching her the acting technique; in the clip she has her feet resting on his shins as he sits and gives her the lesson.

With a wry smile he tells her to "hush, you are here to learn, not to talk," when she laughs. He continues, "What you have to understand about the quadruple take is it’s not in the same style as the take, single or double take, right, it’s a different style of physical comedy."

Patrick Stewart is calling for his fans to donate to a domestic violence charity in the U.K. to help keep it afloat.

He tells Britain's The Guardian, "The impact of these cuts will be devastating. The financial footing of women's charities has been shaky for many years; now it is in real danger of slipping into the abyss. Let me be quite clear about what is at stake here.

Spike's original series Blue Mountain State is one of my guilty pleasures.

Patrick Stewart has thrown his support behind a campaign to legalise assisted suicide after a friend was driven to end her life "in the most ghastly way."

Can two young teenagers find love despite their warring families? Well, we all know how Romeo and Juliet ended up. However in the 3D version of 'Gnomeo & Juliet' directed by Kelly Asbury, things don't turn out quite as tragic for our lovers.

'Gnomeo & Juliet' takes place in contemporary Stratford-onAvon, Shakespeare's birthplace. Miss Montague (voice of Julie Walters) and Mr. Capulet (voice of Richard Wilson) are neighbours and they absolutely hate each other.

Their respective collection of garden gnomes, the Reds and the Blues view each other with hostility as well. After Blue Gnomeo...

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.

Movies That Did Not Live Up To Their Potential

March 3rd, 2009 10:39am EST
Star Wars Episode III
Nothing can be more frustrating than something not living up to its potential. Movies are especially guilty of this. There's something about watching a movie that was on to something but didn't quite make it that can stick with you. Watching them unfold feels akin to a runner screaming towards the finish line only to fall and break their ankle thirty feet short. Films like these fall apart for many reasons be it last minute changes by a studio, unnecessary plot twists, or just good old-fashioned incompetence. For whatever reason, these movies are bad-they just didn't have to be. Here's a fe...

Leave Them Hanging: Favorite TV Cliffhangers

Television is a medium that thrives on manipulating audiences into tuning in, and no narrative device is more effective at accomplishing that task than the cliffhanger. With the end of the 2007-08 season rapidly approaching and new cliffhangers waiting in the wings, we have decided to celebrate our favorites from years past.

The Cliffhanger: It didn't provoke quite the fervor of the "Dallas" storyline that it parodied, but this two-part episode did warrant a special "America's Most Wanted" and was discussed often during the summer of 19...

You know them, you love them...and you certainly wouldn't want to piss them off. So who are they? They are the uber tough heroines who prove time and again that one doesn't need a y chromosome to kill bad guys, protect loved ones and ultimately save the day. Each one of them fights for a different reason, a different cause. Each has her own style, strengths, and battles. They do all share a common trait, however - they can all take on pretty much any man, woman, robot or monster that comes their way. Here is Starpulse's tribute to "Television's Top Buttkicking Gals."
