Top 10 Worst Movie Sequels of All Time

August 9th, 2014 7:00pm EDT
Top 10 Worst Movie Sequels of All Time
Hollywood loves a sure thing. So it's probably no surprise that when a film enjoys massive success at the box office, Tinsel Town executives immediately start planning the sequel. After all, audiences loved the original so just churning out more of the same is a bullet-proof plan, right?

Wrong.

While there have certainly been a number of great sequels that were as good as or even better than the original, there have also been quite a few times where the sequel failed to live up to expectations. Here are our picks in no particular order for the worst movie sequels of all time.

15 Celebrity Women Over 50 Who Are Still Sexier Than Ever

January 23rd, 2014 9:42pm EST
Christie Brinkley
59-year-old Christie Brinkley (she'll be 60 on Feb. 2) became a household name when she covered Sports Illustrated's illustrious Swimsuit Issue for three consecutive years (1979, 1980, 1981), and on January 14 she was spotted at the party celebrating the 50th anniversary of the annual issue looking better than most of the younger models.

But Christie isn't the only star over the age of 50 who still looks good. In fact, we'd probably have to say that 50 is the new 30 for these women, few of whom -- if any -- appear to have had any "work" done.

Actress Jane Seymour, 62, (she'll be 63 on Feb...

Michelle Pfeiffer was once part of a cult that encouraged its members not to eat food or drink water. The actress, 55, has revealed she joined a "very controlling" group that followed Breatharianism.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy in Hocus Poc
What sort of spell do witches hold over us? We find them fascinating, scary, and often times sexy.

These ladies, and men as well, don't just haunt our dreams, they find shelter in movie theaters and in our living rooms, and we welcome them into our imagination.

So which witches have what it takes to make our list? Let's not waste another moment; it is time to get bewitched, bothered, and bewildered:

Hocus Pocus (1993)

The Sanderson Sisters: Winifred, Sarah and Mary

Fashion Fails: Jennifer Morrison, Sheryl Crow, Bai Ling, More

Jennifer Morrison
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Jennifer Morrison starts us off with this incredibly frumpy dress at the Toronto International Film Festival. Hard to call this a flattering dress with the way to flares out from her body and makes her look larger than she actually is. And those tacky cheetah print shoes!

Sheryl Crow wore this bizarre dress to a fashion show in New York this week. The somewhat see-through effect looks like cheap lingerie, and the proportions ar...

Review: 'The Family' Not One You'd Like To Have Over For Dinner

September 13th, 2013 3:19pm EDT
The Family
Meet the Manzoni's. A family no different than your average family - mother, father, two children – except this family is in the United States Federal Witness Protection Program and they like to beat people up, or in the case of Daddy Manzoni, kill people.

Giovanni Manzoni (Robert De Niro) was a big time mob boss, who like many big time mob bosses, wound up snitching on his former cohorts. Not a good thing at all.

When we first meet Giovanni and his family his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer), daughter Belle (Dianna Agron) and son, Warren (John D'Leo) they have just been relocated to a sma...

Top 10 Batman Villains From Comics, TV And The Big Screen

July 19th, 2012 10:01pm EDT
Bane
The final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, is upon us; and much like Heath Ledger's Joker the film's villains are once again posed to steal the show.

This time around we'll be reintroduced to three bad guys: Bane, (Tom Hardy), Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and Ra's al Ghul (Liam Neeson). Both Bane and Catwoman made their first appearances in the original film run that Tim Burton started in the 1990s (and, fortunately, we'll be seeing a much different Bane in TDKR); and Ra's al Ghul returns to the series after his intro in Batman Begins.

But where do the...

'Dark Shadows' Is Fun & Campy Despite A One-Note Performance From Johnny Depp

May 10th, 2012 7:01pm EDT
Dark Shadows
For those of you, like myself, who aren't familiar with the television series 'Dark Shadows' which ran from 1966-1971, here are the film's cliff notes:

The year is 1750 (give or take) and a wealthy young man named Barnabus Collins (Johnny Depp) gets it on with his maid Angelique (Eva Green), who just happens to be a witch. She feels the love... Him… not so much. The witch gets pissed, turns Barnabus into a vampire, locks him in a coffin and then buries him deep in the ground.

Still not satisfied, Angelique kills Barnabus's one true love as well as his parents and then she spends the next ...

Tim Burton And Johnny Depp's 'Dark Shadows' Past

May 9th, 2012 8:20pm EDT
Dark Shadows
Are you familiar with the story of Dark Shadows? It was originally a late afternoon supernatural soap opera that ran on the ABC TV network from 1966 to 1971. Some 1,225 episodes were shot during Dark Shadows run and if you were a teenager during that time, you probably rushed home each day after school to catch it.

Directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp, the 2012 reboot of the cult classic seemed to be a dream job for both Burton and Depp. Tim Burton has publically stated that he was a big fan of the TV series and as a child Deep was obsessed with the show and main character Barna...

Johnny Depp
Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" hits theaters on Friday, and several celebrities attended the red carpet premiere in Los Angeles on Monday.

The film centers on an imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), who is set free and returns to his ancestral home in the 1970s.

Depp wore a brown suit that matched his hair, and he accesorized with several necklaces (we can't expect him ever to go the traditional route with a tie.)

Aerosmith rocker and "American Idol" judge Steven Tyler also wore several chains around his neck. But all eyes were drawn to his funky bellbottom pants.

Michelle Pfeiffer was so desperate to star in the big screen remake of her favorite show Dark Shadows she pleaded director Tim Burton for a part.

The actress was a huge fan of the cult 1960s TV series growing up, and when she heard her Batman Returns director was overseeing the remake she took matters into her own hands and made a groveling phone call.

Nevertheless, Pfeiffer was forced to wait for a year before finally getting the go-ahead to play Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the matriarch of a vampire family.

She tells Empire magazine, "I was really uncomfortable doing it and I don't ...

Promoting their new movie, in which the pair locks lips, Pfeiffer revealed her own New Year's Eve plans are far from glamorous.

She said, "I never make it to midnight. I celebrate New Years at 9 p.m. west coast time. I watch the ball drop (in New York) in my jammies with some champagne and maybe some pie. I stopped setting those unrealistic expectations for New Year's Eve many years ago."

If Tony Montana was the heavy of his illegal operation, then his right hand man Manny Ribera was most certainly the heart. Brought to life by then newbie actor Steven Bauer, Manny had both a danger and charisma that made him a perfect yin to Tony’s wild and unpredictable yang. So we here at Starpulse thought it only fitting that just in time for the tasty release of the "Scarface" Limited Edition Blu-ray hitting shelves Sept. 6 from Universal Home Video (check out the review below as well!), we wanted to get some movie geek insight about the flick from the bold Bauer himself.
