elf 1
Whether it’s Will Ferrell’s loveable smile, the yellow tights, or the fact that you can laugh and be a kid again while watching the film- we can all agree that Elf is the greatest holiday movie since National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation or A Christmas Story. For those of you who live under a rock and have not seen Elf, it is a classic holiday movie starring Will Ferrell, who plays Buddy the elf and directed by Jon Favreau. When Buddy was a baby in an orphanage, he snuck into Santa’s sack and ended up in the North Pole with the rest of the elves. As he grew up, much taller and more manly th...

Weekly fashion wrap up
It's Starpulse's weekly fashion wrap up - the last of the year! Stay tuned for our worst fashions of 2009 feature in two weeks. The Olsen twins lead "The Worst" lineup this week. We are kind of over the homeless bag lady look.

THIS WEEK'S WORST DRESSED

Typically we're a fan of Heather Graham, but something is really off. Not sure we like the hair or the bride style mini-dress.

We aren't sure if this is Taylor Momsen or Little J from Gossip Girl, but we really wish they would stop dressing her like a 15 year old hooker.

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

June 15th, 2009 9:02am EDT
Year One
I finally got around to seeing "Terminator Salvation," and I must admit I wasn't terribly impressed. Overall the film was better than "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," but that doesn't say a whole lot because "T3" was pretty bad. Sam Worthington and Anton Yelchin were great, while Christian Bale gave an okay performance. I was expecting a more epic movie considering all its hype.

This week there are five films premiering: "Year One," "The Proposal," "Whatever Works," "Food Inc," and "Dead Snow." There are three I think are worth seeing, and two I think you should wait to rent.

Adam Scott (Step Brothers, Tell Me You Love Me) plays Henry, an out-of-work actor who has to return to his old job of bartending for a catering service. Adam talked about the new series, what it was like working with Will Ferrell in Step Brothers and why so many college age students watched his old show, Boy Meets World.
