12 Historically Great Time Travel Movies
Even though humans haven’t found the necessary technological means to travel through time, we’ve been living our decade hopping “what if” fantasies for years on the silver screen.

Jake Gyllenhaal's 5 Best Movies

Jake Gyllenhaal's 5 Best Movies
You can say this about Jake Gyllenhaal: there’s little chance he’ll ever be typecast. Thanks to his deliberate choice to vary his roles as much as possible, Gyllenhaal continues to be one of the most unpredictable actors working today. He’s done big budget blockbusters (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) and smaller, contemplative indie films (Proof, Moonlight Mile). With each film, Gyllenhaal seems to pick roles in which he can challenge himself as an actor, rarely playing the same type of character more than once.

This weekend Gyllenhaal will continue to surprise audiences with a grit...

So flux capacitors at the ready readers, cause here are five ri...

'Vanilla Sky' Voted Most Confusing Movie

July 22nd, 2010 8:13am EDT
Vanilla Sky
Tom Cruise's confusing movie Vanilla Sky has been branded the most baffling film in a new poll. The 2001 movie, which stars Cruise as a playboy left horrifically disfigured after a crash, was the film which left audiences most perplexed by its plot.

According to the survey by LoveFilm.com, David Lynch's surreal thriller Mulholland Drive was voted into second place, while the sinister rabbit in Donnie Darko prompted cinema-goers to put it at number three.

The top five brow-furrowing films were rounded out by The Matrix Revolutions and Christopher Nolan's Memento.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'A Christmas Carol,' 'The Box' & More

November 2nd, 2009 11:17am EST
Evan Crean
Sadly Boondock Saints II was an utter disappointment. While it had occasional bright moments, the film was marred by a number of problems.

Largely referential to the first film, it felt at many moments as if should be parodying itself, but it sadly wasn't. The overarching story tried to be overly complex in the web of manipulation it sought to weave.

Special Agent Eunice Bloom (Julie Benz) was a terrible replacement for Agent Smecker (Willem Dafoe), embodying every annoying Southern stereotype.

My biggest criticism of the film was that it was just too wacky; it had too many o...

Random Thoughts While Waiting for American Idol to Start:

-No weird WWE-style judge introduction tonight. Finally!

-Hey, it's the bald guy from "Fringe"! Here's a guarantee: 95% of the audience had no idea why they showed that guy, kind of like the 99% who didn't understand why he was on the sidelines during NFL playoff games.

-Do people actually get embarrassed by their baby photos? Isn't that the biggest faux-humiliation moment ever? I mean, you're a baby! The fashions were different and your parents dressed you to look like their version of cute. How insecure does so...

Overrated & Underrated High School Movies

Bring It On
It's the end of September, and now there's no turning back. Summer is too distant a memory, Christmas Break is a speck on the horizon and the work is beginning to pile up. Yes, school is back in full swing and an escape from the dullness of its routine couldn't even be accomplished by the craftiest of magicians.

The only respite at this point is fantasy. Dreaming of a life outside of ours, one where school is but a minor inconvenience and can even serve as a method of deriving happiness.

Where does this place exist? The movies, of course. High school movies are enjoyed by stud...

The Future Seems Bright For '27 Dresses' Star James Marsden

James Marsden
Chances are you've come across James Marsden's dimples on the big screen and been charmed by the man behind them. There's a boyish quality to Marsden, but there's also strong leading man potential, which Marsden is finally beginning to enjoy.

After playing a string of good boys who can't quite hold onto the girl in films such as X-Men, Superman Returns and The Notebook, Marsden joked to Entertainment Weekly that his action figure line would be called, "'The Other Guy Series'-the guy-that-doesn't-get-the-girl action figures."

Marsden isn't destined to be "The Other Guy" much long...
