April 9th, 2012 8:48am EDT
Sofia Vergara
Sofia Vergara has dismissed reports suggesting she'll be bedding Sharon Stone in new movie "Fading Gigolo," insisting rumors the two beauties play bisexual lovers are just wishful thinking on behalf of lusty reporters.

It was reported the sexy Colombian actress and Stone, who plays a dermatologist in the film, enjoy a threesome with John Turturro's escort character in the comedy.

But Vergara insists there's no lovemaking in the film.

She tells news show Extra, "There's no lesbian loving. Somebody thought it was more interesting to write, 'Oh, Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara, they have to ...

Larry The Cable Guy (aka Mater!)
Known far and wide by adults for his hilarious stand up work via the famed 'Blue Collar Comedy Tour,' Larry the Cable Guy also cornered the kid market with the inspired voicing of lovable tow truck Mater in Pixar’s "Cars" franchise.

Now the Mater heavy sequel "Cars 2" is hitting DVD and Blu-ray (streets Nov. 1 from Disney Home Entertainment) - featuring the sassy truck and best friend McQueen heading for Japan and Europe for ...

Review: 'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon' Repeats A Tired Formula

July 2nd, 2011 10:45am EDT
Transformers 3
If we’re lucky, Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” is the last film in his series. His bloated, 154 minute mess, borders on beating a dead…robot…in disguise… (Sorry, had to go there).

Does the third “Transformers” movie advance the story for Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and his robotic friends? Yes. But does it do so in a fresh and engaging way? No.

“Dark of the Moon” repeats the same tired formula as its predecessors: poorly written dialogue, superficial female eye candy, and needlessly dangerous heroics.

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Is Bad In The Best Way Possible.

June 29th, 2011 10:09pm EDT
Poster
So, let it be known that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" is a colossal failure as a film. Huge. There are plot holes and time line inconsistencies and sometimes entire characters are completely forgotten until the script calls on them to save and or ruin the day. Megatron, the main villian of the entire blessed franchise, disappears for 20 minutes during the end of the flick for crying out loud!

There is no subtext or context or things to ponder or discuss. You won't come away from this film culturally enriched, feeling like a better person, or with anything positive to say about the mes...

By Joan Alperin Schwartz: 'Transformers - Dark Of The Moon' presented in 3D is directed by Michael Bay.

First, I'll start with the good stuff. And yes, there is 'good stuff'. In fact, I think this is the best 'Transformers' of the series...which may or may not be saying much...depending on how you felt about the other two.

Here it goes...In no particular order...What I liked about this film...

1) The backstory...We find out from archival news footage that President Kennedy didn't send our astronauts to the Moon just to take a few steps for Mankind, but to investigate an alien space s...

Review: 'Cars 2' 'Two Jews On Film' Celebrate Their 100th And Drive In Opposite Directions (Video)

Cars 2
By Joan Alperin Schwartz: 'Cars 2' is the new 3D wonder from director John Lasseter. John and his crew at Pixar have once again proven why they are the best at what they do.

To really enjoy this film, you have to put aside any ideas that cars can't talk, can't have friends and girlfriends, can't experience human emotions and can't be killer spies. (Something the other half of Two Jews On Film, John my husband, wasn't able to do).

Anyway, the story goes like this...Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is the snazzy, red, highly acclaimed racing car. After winning four Pisto...

Johnny Depp's Best & Worst Films - Do You Agree?

June 30th, 2009 9:36am EDT
Pirates of the Caribbean
The problem with an actor like Johnny Depp is finding movies in his history that aren't fantastic. Then you have to consider the movies that aren't that good, but that he was great in anyway (which covers basically everything else).

The truth is, this Kentucky-born actor is one of the best in his or anyone's generation, and he also is an accomplished producer, director, screenwriter, and yes, even has quite a set of singing pipes. Good thing he's just so unattractive or he might just be the perfect Hollywood hunk ... oh wait. He's gorgeous. Damn you, Johnny Depp!

Review: 'Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen' Outshines Original

June 25th, 2009 9:46am EDT
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Very rarely does a director make an epic sequel that's better than its predecessor. Michael Bay has done exactly that with "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." With its massive explosions and its extraordinary battle scenes, I left the movie on Monday night feeling like a kid hopped up on sugar.

There is one very specific reason though why the second Transformers movie outshines the first. "Revenge of the Fallen" dares to be more than meets the eye. Once you get past the cliché reference, think about its implications.

"Revenge of the Fallen" is not just a simple repackaging of ...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

I got the chance to see "Moon," this past weekend and I really enjoyed it. Sam Rockwell's interaction between the cloned versions of himself was brilliant, and Kevin Spacey was entertaining as the lunar station's computer.

The movie's effects were rock solid and the music was great. My only real complaints were its slow pace, and that I felt the reasons why he was being cloned weren't adequately explained.

This week we have the arrival of another highly anticipated summer blockbuster: "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." I will be seeing it tonight, and I'm anxious to see how ...

Megan Fox's Stubby Thumbs

Megan Fox
Megan Fox finally heads back to the big screen on June 24th in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the sequel to the highly successful 2007 blockbuster Transformers. But the real story is Megan's thumbs. We once thought this vixen to be the hottest thing on the planet and lacking a single flaw (well, maybe the Marilyn Monroe tattoo), but then we found one: her kinda creepy, short, stubby thumbs. More pics after the jump!

In Rise of the Fallen she'll once again pair up with Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro. The Office's Rainn Wilson will also appear in the f...

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 ...

'Monk' Recap: 100th Episode Was Worth Watching

One hundred episodes of "Monk" have been aired, and the special 100th episode may have been one of the very best. Loaded with guest stars, a unique set of cases, and nostalgic reminders of the past, "Mr. Monk's 100th Case" showcased the best of its writers and actors. Here's to another 100 cases, Mr. Monk!

The episode surrounds the story that a television news magazine has done on Adrian Monk. His 100th case was a serial killer murdering actresses in San Francisco, and to mark this event the show "In Focus" does a piece on Monk. They follow him around the crime scenes and interview his...

Spike Lee's Best & Not-So-Best Films

August 11th, 2008 9:00am EDT
Spike Lee
It's difficult to rank the films of Spike Lee in order of best to worst because, quite frankly, the auteur hasn't really made a horrible film. With nearly 20 feature films under his belt and more to come (his upcoming WWII film looks promising) Lee has of course put out his share of minor works, but even the projects that failed still had enough of the director's signature characteristics-fascinating characters, intriguing dialogue, and race relation undertones-and ultimately are merely cinematic experiments gone wrong. Consider this a list of best and minor works of one of America's finest...

Adam Sandler is White Ladies Man in Judd Apatow's 'You Don’t Mess With the Zohan'

June 6th, 2008 9:44am EDT
You Don
(HollywoodChicago.com) – In the relatively anemic anthology of recent Adam Sandler flops, “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” hangs above with comedic charm and a nonsensically amusing plotline. The story is divisively intermingled with racial and ethnic sensitivities between the Israelis and Palestinians.

At first, it even feels like a scribe sat down for a few weeks, slammed back a few brewskies and toked daily on the good ganja while attempting to ink a forcefully novel plot.

In You Don't Mess with the Zohan, Emmanuelle Chriqui stars as Dalia: a Palestinian immigrant to New York an...

Made In Connecticut: Filmmakers Turn East Coast State Into Moviemaking Mecca

Is Connecticut the new Hollywood? Probably not, but it has become a hotspot for filmmaking.

Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso have sparked baby rumors again after she refused alcohol at a celebrity party.

While on holiday in the Dominican Republic this weekend, the barmaid-turned-interior decorator was refusing to drink alcohol at a poolside party, while heartthrob Matt was seen guzzling beers. At one point, t...
