Macaulay Culkin's publicist has fired back at press reports suggesting the Home Alone star is seriously ill following the publication of photos in which the actor appears gaunt and frail.

The photos appeared on ETonline.com on Thursday and prompted an immediate response from the former child star's rep.

Calling any suggestion that his client is ill "reckless, thoughtless and irresponsible", the publicist stated that Culkin is "in perfectly good health".

He added, "We are asking them (ET and news show Entertainment Tonight) to discontinue the rumors."

'Scream 4': Another Movie, Another Dollar

April 14th, 2011 2:02pm EDT
Scream 4
With the release of "Scream 4" on Friday, April 15, Wes Craven will finally have an answer to the question: Can the "Scream" movie franchise be resurrected as easily as the ghost faced killer? It’s been over a decade since the last installment of the "Scream" series was released and now the old gang, at least what’s left of it, is back at it again. Given most of the original cast has been killed off and the remaining ones have aged disgracefully into “Cougar Town” and Betty Ford during the significant time lapse since the last film’s release, Craven has decided to the inject some ne...

Five Non-Traditional Christmas Movies

Die_Hard
Every Christmas I face the same question: how many times can I watch the same old batch of Christmas movies before I get tired of them?  Answer: three.  To that end, I've compiled a list of five non-traditional Christmas movies for you to turn to when you get tired of TBS's 24-hour marathon of "A Christmas Story."

5 - Die Hard (1988)

Outside of “A Christmas Story,” “Die Hard” is my go-to Christmas movie.  “But ‘Die Hard’ is an action movie!” you might say, and you’d be correct.  But “Die Hard” is special, because it’s an action movie set during Christmas.  “Die Hard,” starring Bruce Wil...

Here's something that will make you feel old - "Home Alone's" mischievous Kevin Mccallister is 30!

That's right, the world's first $1 million child star, Macaulay Culkin, hits the big 3-0 today.

It seems like yesterday since the beloved blond boy wonder was creating mayhem in the first two "Home Alones," and fronting films like "Richie Rich" and "Getting Even with Dad" - but, no, sorry 80s kids; "Home Alone" hit the big screen 20 years ago!

He might have retired at 14, back in 1995, but Mack's still one of the most iconic movie figures of the last century - and we can't wait for him to m...

John Hughes Oscar Tribute
Anyone brought up during the 80s must've had a difficult time keeping a dry eye during Sunday night's Oscars tribute to late filmmaker John Hughes, because nothing captured the feel of the era better than his movies. Hughes brilliant films were the voice of a generation.

Movies like "The Breakfast Club," "Sixteen Candles," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Pretty In Pink," "Home Alone," "Some Kind Of Wonderful," and "Weird Science," defined the typical 80s teenager and had a huge impact on a generation.

Day One: Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2009 - Home Alone

When I was a kid, the magic of "Home Alone" was in what Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) was able to accomplish on his own. I was younger than his character when the film was first released, and watching him rig his house full of booby traps to catch the bad guys was almost inspirational. I found myself digging through my Playskool toy bins after returning home from the theater to see if I, too, could pull something like that off if situation cal...

Remembering John Hughes: Which Film Was Your Favorite?

August 7th, 2009 10:44am EDT
Sixteen Candles
John Hughes had an amazing run as a writer and director and most of all inventor of the modern American teen movie as we know it today. If you grew up in the 80s you definitely understood this but may not have known the director behind all the classic movies that dealt adolescence and coming of age. Films like "The Breakfast Club," "Sixteen Candles," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," and "Weird Science" defined what is was to be a teenager in the 80's. Take a look at some of these clips. Let us know which your favorites are.

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

July 6th, 2009 9:36am EDT
Bruno
Last week, I chose to see "Public Enemies," which is a decision I definitely do not regret. Johnny Depp is electric as John Dillinger, oozing the charm and finesse of the real life American bank robber and folk hero. Christian Bale also does a solid job as the FBI agent Melvin Purvis, a man singularly obsessed with catching Dillinger.

My main complaints are that the movie does not develop the roles of the other gangsters very well, and at points that the cinematography leaves something to be desired. There are some really shaky handheld shots, which are nauseating. Other than that, ...

Underrated & Overrated Child Performances

October 10th, 2008 9:13am EDT
Little Miss Sunshine
Everybody loves a good child performance. This might start with parents parading their children out to sing songs at dinner parties or the endless school plays parents are forced to attend, but whatever it is, kid actors are ingrained in a positive way in the eyes of many filmgoers.

It seems that if a kid simply manages to speak in a way that can be understood the performance earns praise. It's been this way since the 1920s and has since grown to a degree that certain kiddie performers are more powerful than their veteran contemporaries.

But not all such performances are great, i...

He was the guy who took the training wheels off our bikes, let us jump off the top of the fridge when Mom wasn't looking, and the one whose admiration and respect was hard earned and beyond gratifying.

For the lucky majority, Father's Day is an opportunity to express what we usually fail to: how much the guidance of a paternal figure has touched our lives for the better. But what of the unlucky few for whom the idea of Father's Day is a kick in the ribs? Which stars won't be buying a tie, power tools or steak dinner for the old man come June 15?

Turning Twenty: A Look Back At 1988's 'Beetlejuice'

March 31st, 2008 4:06pm EDT
Beetlejuice
Half "Bloody Mary" and half decomposing sleezeball, Beetlejuice is the titular anti-hero that helped put Tim Burton into the who's who of Hollywood. Now at its 20th anniversary, let's take a look back at a sparkling example of dark comedy that stands as a precursor to Burton's magical films.

The Movie

Reading the cast list will illicit at least one "oh yeah, he/she was in this" reaction. The ensemble would also make a 1990s romantic comedy cast director salivate: Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, an appearance by the late Robert Goulet, and...

In this town (Los Angeles) and this industry (entertainment), there are a handful of strong, intelligent, funny women who - once they finally broke onto the radar - have worked consistently in equally strong, intelligent, funny roles.

After reading this month's "Who Says Women Aren't Funny" issue of Vanity Fair, it is impossible not to notice just how many beyond the current "it" girls of comedy were left off that list (which included funnygirls such as Tina Fey, Sarah Silverman and Amy Poehler).

I'm sitting with my family at the Thanksgiving table. At the focus is the bird carcass, a bulging centerpiece surrounded by newly stuffed bodies. The cranberry jello, still quivering in the shape of the can, is the only untouched side dish. There is a settling quiet as the full-stomached groans subside and give way to satisfied smiles, until finally somebody strikes up a conversation. Like the feeding frenzy that preceded it, it starts out slow and steadily grows more frantic.
