The person who carried us for nine months, mended our boo-boos and smothered us with so much love that sometimes it felt like a woolen blanket on an extra hot day. (Wait, maybe that was just mine - kidding mom!) In any case Mother’s Day is coming up on May 8 and Starpulse thought it only respectful to pay a little cinematic love to the ladies who first gave us life. So here is an ever-eclectic list of the funniest, toughest, scariest, strangest and downright quirkiest caregivers to ever grace the silver screen – it’s our...Top Ten M...

Hollywood kinda blew it. Now HBO is determined to get it right. Mildred Pierce, a five-hour miniseries based on the classic James M. Cain novel about a single mom struggling through the Great Depression, stars Kate Winslet in the role made famous by Joan Crawford. Mommie Dearest won an Oscar for the 1945 film version, which is hardly considered definitive. In fact, it pretty much mangled and sanitized Cain's starkly sexual feminist saga. Winslet, herself an Oscar winner, watched only five minutes of the Crawford film, then stopped, she says, "because I...

Robert Pattinson Is Dethroning Brad Pitt

Robert Pattinson & Brad Pitt
It seems as though the celestial stars are not the only ones shifting these days. Hollywood's biggest stars seem to be morphing into new and younger ones. Changes in Hollywood, however, are not uncommon - we have seen many older celebrities either die or simply fade away.

From Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Clark Gable, John Wayne and countless others, superstars of the screen are after all, human. As they age, so do their fan bases. In the last several years Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have risen to superstardom, and they have managed to remain there unscathed. Brangelina are ever...

Hilary vs. Faye, Beyonce vs. Etta and Chris Brown vs. Decent Society: No doubt about it, the celebrity feud is alive and well.

Kill Bill Vol. 1
There is something so intriguing about an evil, scheming woman. They are just a blast to watch on the big screen. These are the ladies you cheer for, no matter who they are trying to kill, trap, seduce or steal. Here are our picks of the baddest bitches of them all:

Joan Crawford as Crystal Allen of The Women (1939)

Starpulse's Top 10 Most Horrifying Films

October 16th, 2007 11:36am EDT
Elm Street
Most people confuse horror and horrifying. Believe me, I’m a fan of the classics: Nightmare on Elm Street, Evil Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and so on. I enjoy my share of zombies, gore, masked villains and horny teenagers who never seem to learn that getting some means certain death.

However, the horror films that interest me the most are the ones that I can’t watch again or can’t watch very often. When something is truly horrifying, it should screw with you psychologically and make your skin crawl. Here are my "Top 10 Most Horrifying Films."

1940s Director Vincent Sherman Dies at 99

June 20th, 2006 9:32am EDT
Hollywood filmmaker Vincent Sherman died on Sunday night of natural causes - just one month ahead of his 100th birthday. The acclaimed director dominated cinema in the 1940s and 1950s before being ostracized for his suspected communist sympathies. He later went on to direct a string of hugely successful TV series including The Waltons and Baretta.

Aside from his string of hit films, Sherman was famed for romancing his leading ladies, including Bette Davis, Rita Hayworth and his three-movie dalliance with Joan Crawford.

Francine York, his companion for the last nine years, says, ...
