According to Arnett's theory, in industrialized societies the types of experiences that people have who are in their late teens to mid-20's have changed dramatically over the past 50 years. Instead of being quick to make that walk down the ...

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.

Comedy legend Mel Brooks has given up on love at the age of 81. Brooks has been single since Anne Bancroft, his wife of 41 years, died in 2005 - and he is now happy to concentrate on his family, friends and career.

He says, "Nothing's worse than an old Jew dating. You really think I could listen to somebody ask me, 'What's your sign?' Absolutely not dating. I have grandchildren, dear friends, my show - that's all I want."

Mel Brooks Fights Loneliness Through War Stories

February 6th, 2007 9:00pm EST
Mel Brooks
Veteran filmmaker Mel Brooks has coped with the death of his wife Anne Bancroft by recalling his time as a soldier during World War II. The director survived life as an engineer in North Africa during the war by living from "one hedgerow to the next", and he's adopted the same attitude since Bancroft died of uterine cancer in August.

Their son Max reveals, "In the months after my mom passed, I stayed with him a lot - from the day the oncologist told her, 'Your scan came back, and two points lit up,' to the moment she stopped breathing in that bed in Mount Sinai (hospital, New York Cit...
