Hugh Jackman
So it's the holiday season ladies and nothing could be better than a purely sinful man meat list to wet your appetites. These guys are hot and if many of you had it your own way, you know you'd stuff all, if not most of them, into your Christmas stockings.

Forget the holiday feasts. Forget the ham and the turkey. Your meaty man feast is right here waiting.

1. Daniel Craig

Daniel, we will stir you, shake you and turn you upside down like a martini. Why? Because you are so incredibly gorgeous and, oh yeah, you did those Bond movies as well - 'Casino Royale' and 'Quantum of Solace....

November 14th, 2008 3:04pm EST
Casino Royale
Opinions may vary about which Bond movie has the best villain (From Russia With Love), the best Bond girl (Dr. No) or the worst theme song (The Man With The Golden Gun), but one thing people can agree on is that the opening sequences have only gotten better over the years.

Here's a list of the best opening sequences of Bond films in honor of the 22nd 007 movie opening today:

A Look At All The Actors Who Have Played 007

November 13th, 2008 10:56am EST
Quantum of Solace
This Friday, Sir Ian Fleming's James Bond is back in theaters. Daniel Craig has brought a brute anger to the role that has not quite been seen before. In the very least, as we learned in the 2006 version of Casino Royale, he certainly does not care any longer how his martini is served. Craig is under contract for one more Bond film after Quantum of Solace, but what if he does not return after that twenty-third film? What will his post Bond career look like? Let's take a look at all the actors who have played 007 -- rouge film, or not -- and what their post Bond careers looked like.

GetBack Bond Ratings: Who Is The Best 007 Ever?

November 3rd, 2008 10:48am EST
Quantum of Solace
With the release of Roger Moore's autobiography, My Word Is My Bond, and the upcoming Quantum Of Solace (the 22nd film in the Official James Bond franchise), we couldn't help but ponder: Who is the best 007 EVER? It goes without saying that he has to be an international man of mystery, a bad-ass crime solver, a babe magnet. Slick, suave, and seductive. But we have our own set of criteria for the best Bond. He must also:

1. Be a snazzy dresser.

2. Have a hot Bond girl.

3. Have a bitchin' ride.

4. Have a killer theme song.

5. Have a relaxing off-hours diversion.

The newest entry in a popular film franchise invariably invokes feelings of anticipation and excitement from diehard fans. It also happens to raise expectations enormously for the finished product.

Point/Counterpoint: Should Hollywood Stop Remaking Classic Films?

January 18th, 2008 1:45pm EST
Rob Zombie
Over the years many classic movies have been remade. Don't get me wrong, some of those remakes have been really good. But the majority of the movies have been really bad.

These days, special effects are being taken to a whole new level, but that's not always a good thing. One of the main reasons these films are classics is because CGI was in the distant future. People loved the original "Godzilla" because you can see the man in the Godzilla costume crushing a cardboard box, also known as Tokyo.

There are few movies that have scared me, and one of those films was the 1978 movie "Ha...

Starpulse Holiday Movie Preview, Part 3

With every surplus of holiday cheer comes a few Scrooges. Some can't stand all the mushiness, or perhaps they just want to have something blow up to go along with their eggnog. Maybe they just like to sit on the edge of their seats instead of on Santa's lap. Fair enough.

For those people, there have been a few real holiday film gems over the years. Some are disturbing, such as Santa going on a killing spree. Others are entertaining, like Die Hard's Christmas party gone awry.

Juliette Lewis wants to be a Bond girl. The actress is convinced she could give former 007 beauties like Ursula Andress and Halle Berry a run for their money with her toned body and feisty attitude.

Another reason the actress-turned-singer wants to star in a Bond film is so she can meet Daniel Craig, who makes his debut as the suave spy in Casino Royale next month because she has a crush on him. She added: "Daniel is a good actor and very easy on the eye, so I'd love to say hello and g...
