16 Of The Coolest Swords From Pop Culture

May 19th, 2014 2:32pm EDT
The Last Samurai
Swords - what's there to say about them? Nobody uses them anymore, which is a real shame. Swords remind us of an age when men were men, and they focused on really manly things, like chivalry, honor and killing a man with a single blow. Alas, those days are gone, and swords have retired from the battlefield.

But they do live on in one place - our hearts and minds. There's something innately satisfying about the simplicity and elegance of a sword, and the ritual of one-on-one combat, of people testing their mettle mano y mano. To that end, they live on in our culture, and by extension in our...

The actor will give voice to half-vampire superhero Eric Brooks, played on the big screen by Wesley Snipes, in the latest Marvel TV project.

Perrineau admits he jumped at the chance to be a part of the show because he was a big fan of Snipes' three movies.

He explains, "When the first one came out, me and Wesley were friends and I said, 'Yo! If there's another one, I gotta be in it!' But that never happened. This was my chance to jump in."

The Really Expendables: Actors Stallone Failed To Get On Board

The Expendables
It’s been joked that the Internet acted as casting director for Sylvester Stallone’s muscle and explosion symphony The Expendables. Setting out to create a who’s who of action stars of the past 30 years, Stallone cobbled together a cadre of modern stars like Jet Li and Jason Statham along with a healthy stable of direct-to-video relics like Dolph Lundgren and Eric Roberts to form his retro team of ‘roided up ass-kickers. But when looking at the film’s full cast, and its heavy reliance on muscle-heads from the worlds of MMA, professional wrestling and the NFL, it’s hard to shake the nagging ...

Wesley Snipes is confident an appeals judge will overturn his conviction and sentence on federal tax charges, insisting he's "not worried" about the case. The Blade star was sentenced to three years in prison in 2008 after being found guilty of three misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file his income tax return.

Prosecutors claimed he earned more than $38 million between 1999 and 2001 and owed $2.7 million in back taxes. Snipes apologized for his behavior during the trial, insisting he was "unschooled in the science of law and finance," and contested the ruling in the Georgia Court...

There has quite possibly never been such a sharp contrast the American public has to choose between. One candidate possesses the mind of an intellectual while the other uses gut instincts. One maintains a trim and chiseled physique and the other uses brute strength to get his point across. One is a relative newcomer that was born in the early 1960's while one has a long and storied history having been born in the late 1930's. Are we talking about Barack Obama and John McCain?

Big Screen To Little Screen: Some Series Shine Will Others Fail

Often we don’t realize that our favorite TV shows began as vehicles on the big screen. Many of television’s best programs started that way. Then again, so did some of the worst.

In 1974, Ellen Burstyn starred in the Oscar awarded Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. The movie was such a success that it was turned into “Alice,” complete with Vic Tayback as Mel. Unfortunately, it was Polly Holiday who made the sitcom a success. By the time she left the show and was replaced in 1980 by the original Flo, Diane Ladd, the damage had already been done. The series soon met its demise.
