Top Ten 'Worst Remakes' Ever

8/15/2011 7:00pm EDT
Fright Night 3D
With the arrival of the less-then-stellar update of the Tom Holland classic "Fright Night 3D" hitting theaters this week, we felt somewhat inspired to sink our own Starpulse film fangs into some equally frightful follow-up flops. Flicks so bad, so crappy and so obviously a ploy to rape the movie-goer of every penny that even the top studio execs still feel a tad dirty from the fallout. (Or maybe not!) So listen up all you cinema slackers out there (yes, even reported "Oldboy" remake filmmakers Steven Spielberg to Spike Lee – shame on all of you!) because below is a hard lesson on why cer...

The Best And Worst Of Keanu Reeves

12/16/2008 9:51am EST
Keanu Reeves
You either love him or hate him: Keanu Reeves has been called anything from "yummalicious" and "OMG!! HOT! HOT! HOT!" to "a talentless, limp little douche of a man with all the charisma of a sack of onions." (Those are all actual quotes, people.)

Bashing (and defending) Keanu Reeve's acting skills is apparently a popular pastime on the internet. The best (or should I say worst) quotes have thankfully been collected here. On the occasion of his new film's release ("The Day the Earth Stood Still), Starpulse takes a look back at the best and worst of Keanu's career.

Jennifer Connelly Polkadots
The wonderful Jennifer Connelly was in Paris promoting her new movie The Day the Earth Stood Still wearing a dizzying black & white polka dotted blouse.

We think 37-year-old Jennifer is strikingly beautiful, but the top has got to go (and be replaced with another one wise guy!) What do you think? Leave a comment below!

Klaatu Barada Nikto: A History

11/17/2008 9:49am EST
The Day the Earth Stood Still
The fall of 1951 gave world a number of things: the first oral contraceptive, the first episode of "I Love Lucy" and Bobby Thomson hit the "shot heard round the world" winning the National League pennant for the New York Giants. These are things that resonate with a countless amount of people, but mean nothing to the legions of the world's nerds. To science fiction geeks, September 1951 gave the world one thing: Robert Wise's The Day the Earth Stood Still.

In the film, the inhabitants of Earth face a dire choice. Throw down their weapons and live in peace, or have the entire planet des...
