14 Time Loop Films To Get You Ready For 'Edge Of Tomorrow'
The idea of time travel has been around for centuries and for good reason: who hasn't dreamed of going back and changing their past mistakes? Well, Tom Cruise has the unique chance of doing just that in Edge of Tomorrow, except that he must die over and over until he can defeat an alien menace.

Before you check out Edge of Tomorrow this weekend, perhaps one of these 14 other time loop films will serve as an appetizer...

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. Whether these movies introduced historical figures to modern day morons, self-causing and often murderous time paradoxes, or just some good old fashioned incestuous scenarios, filmmakers wasted no moments in these creative and clever time travel sagas.

Rising And Falling Stars: Chris Masters & Punxsutawney Phil

March 23rd, 2013 9:00am EDT
Chris Masters
Rising Star* Chris Masters: How many of us can actually say we could lift an object as heavy as a tree to save someone we love?

Apparently former WWE Star Chris Masters can, and that is why he is the rising star of the week.

Masters, whose birth name is Chris Mordetzky,  used his 6’5” and 265 pound frame to actually uproot a tree in order to save his mama who was trapped inside of her burning house. The story goes that apparently a deranged neighbor barricaded himself inside Chris’s mother; Diane Mordetsky’s home and refused to leave. When police threatened to break into the home, the loo...

What Are The 10 Best Time Travel Movies?

September 28th, 2012 3:51pm EDT
Looper
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis star in the latest science fiction film that centers on time travel, Looper.

The film takes place in the year 2042, where a hired assassin called a "looper" eliminates targets sent back from 30 years in the future; where time travel technology exists. Although it's been outlawed in 2072, the mob secretly uses the technology to cleanly dispose of anyone who may be a threat to them.

Gordon-Levitt plays one of the top loopers and makes a wealthy living from his job; but he's taken by surprise when his latest target ends up being himself (Willis), sent ba...

Happy 60th Birthday, Bill Murray!

September 21st, 2010 8:20am EDT
Bill Murray
Raise your glasses to Hollywood funnyman Bill Murray - the star turns 60 on Tuesday.

Born in Illinois in 1950, Murray started out at comedy troupe Second City Chicago after dropping out of college - and became infamous for his dry humor and improvisational skills.

In 1974, he moved to New York City and landed a role on hit comedy sketch series "Saturday Night Live," where he shared the small screen with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.

Murray made the transition to film in the 1980s, and a string of box office hits such as "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day" sealed his place in the spotlight.

The Movie Rut: Introduction

June 12th, 2010 9:30am EDT
Groundhog-Day
I’ve always wanted to be the guy who has seen everything. The type of person that waltzes into a video store (or logs into Netflix, if we’re talking about the real world) and comes out with an armful of movies he or she has never seen. Like spinning a globe and venturing off to wherever your finger may land, watching a new movie is an adventure that broadens horizons and strengthens character. Of course, going to a random place on the planet also runs a pretty high risk of landing in the middle of a desert or in some godforsaken war torn hellhole.

As much as I’d like to be the next Peter B...

Check Out The 30th Anniversary Of 'Caddyshack,' On DVD & On Demand Jun 8

June 6th, 2010 7:20am EDT
Caddyshack
The smash success "Caddyshack" became a prototype for countless other wacky T&A-tinged teen comedies of the early 1980s.

At an exclusive country club for WASPish snobs, an ambitious young caddy (Michael O'Keefe) from an overpopulated home eagerly pursues a caddy scholarship in hopes of attending college and, in turn, avoiding a job at the lumber yard. In order to succeed, he must first win the favor of the elitist Judge Smails (Ted Knight), then the caddy golf tournament which the good judge sponsors.

Of course, there are love interests as well - one good, one naughty - not to mention s...

'Weather Girl' Vs. 'Groundhog Day'

July 9th, 2009 10:27am EDT
WEATHER GIRL
You watch the weather channel and think, "Hey, I could do this job. This yo-yo is just reading from a teleprompter." Thanks to films like Groundhog Day and Weather Girl, coming out this month, we learn that weathermen and women have complicated and tortured private lives. Bill Murray's bravura performance showed how a weatherman can have a cold and callous soul that just needs to be thawed out by love (Groundhog Day). In Weather Girl, Tricia O'Kelley mixes a ray of sunshine with the sweet desperation of her down-on-her-luck weatherwoman.

Life, much like the weather, is unpredictable.

Taking You Back To 'Year One': A Spotlight On Harold Ramis

June 19th, 2009 10:10am EDT
Harold Ramis
You probably know him best as the deadpan Dr. Egon Spengler, a collector of spores, molds, and fungus, but relatively few know Harold Ramis for what he does best: writing and directing.

With his latest directorial effort, the stone-age comedy "Year One" coming out today, I felt it was appropriate to pay tribute a man who has been working behind the scenes on some of the best comedies of the past 30 years.

Harold Ramis was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1944 to Ruth and Nathan Ramis, two shop owners on Chicago's West Side. Staunchly loyal to the Chicago area, Ramis has lived there for...

Review 'Year One': Everything About This Movie Is Bad

June 18th, 2009 9:53am EDT
Year One
I've heard this theory in the past that once a person reaches a certain age they lose their sense FOR humor. Before today I refused to believe that. Now, I have to at least take it into consideration. Let me say, I am in awe of one Mr. Harold Ramis. Acting, writing, directing... whatever. Christ, this is the man who directed "Groundhog Day"! I can honestly say this is the single hardest thing that I have ever written because I worship the ground that Harold Ramis walks on.

But, I'm sad to report, "Year One" is about enjoyable as putting in your contact lenses when, the night before, you ...

Storm Coming? Warm Up To These Winter Movies

It's snowy, it's blustery and for a lucky few it's in the 40s. Welcome to the middle of winter. Save portions of the south, this is absolutely the time when a working DVD player can save sanity and stave off cabin fever. So, in the spirit of the don't-you-dare-go-outside season, power up that TV and pop in some of the best winter movies.

Where Do Bands Get Their Names?

November 11th, 2008 11:01am EST
The Band
Sometimes the music doesn't matter. A band that channels the combined genius of John Lennon, Strauss and The Spice Girls can still fall flat with the wrong name. After all, who wants to tell people that their favorite band is called "Truck" or "Lug Nut?" A bad name can kill the potential of any group of musicians. It took more than a few tries to get it right for many of the most popular groups of all time. A few young gents from Britain started off their career calling themselves The Detours and then The High Numbers before ultimately settling on The Who.

Spotlight On Bill Murray's Best Films

August 22nd, 2008 9:02am EDT
Bill Murray
It's been a rough last few months for one of our favorites, Bill Murray. We will forgo rehashing Murray's legal and marital problems and instead take a look back at the greatest movies in his career where Murray plays the lead (sorry "Caddyshack" fans!).

It has been quite some time since we saw Bill on the silver screen-not counting a blink-and-you-miss-him cameo in this summer's "Get Smart." Though, there is already positive buzz on next year's "The Limits of Control".

Also, in case you missed it, here is video from a few days ago when jumped out of a plane to open the 50th ann...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT
Clueless
There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....
