He boasts the book shows how he "managed to save his mercurial client from disgrace by manipulating the media, and Paris herself."

A letter to potential publishers adds, "Paris was oftentimes her own worst enemy, making a sex tape with a former boyfriend, nursing ha...

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

July 20th, 2009 9:27am EDT
The Ugly Truth
Last Tuesday I had the opportunity to catch "Dead Snow" on Demand, and it was everything I hoped it would be. To enjoy the film though you truly need to suspend your disbelief, because if Nazi zombies are not enough, there are tons of really ridiculous, impossible events that occur.

This self-aware horror film makes many hilarious references both directly and indirectly to other movies of the genre. Characters are incredibly cliché and the dialogue is woefully written, but it is an action packed gore-fest featuring some of the most delightfully brutal horror movie deaths.

Recent photos snapped on the set of the 2009 Demi Moore/David Duchovny film "The Joneses" features some reality stars. These photos show two very big reality television personalities playing even bigger versions of themselves to match the upgrade in screen size: Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield from Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

"The Joneses" is about a family who moves into a prestigious community only to peddle very specific products. They are an affluent, powerful, popular family, so everyone else wants to follow their lead and "keep up with the Joneses," hence the titl...

Years ago it was unthinkable for a porn star to be taken seriously in mainstream Hollywood or to be recognized outside of their inner circles. Times have changed. Many porn stars have gone mainstream and become a part of pop culture. Whether it's because they're dating someone famous or appearing on a VH1 reality show, the following adult stars have made names for themselves outside of pornography:

Perhaps one of the most recognizable faces of porn is Jenna Jameson. The winner of over 20 adult film awards, she also founded a pornographic entertainment company. She broke into the m...

Paris Hilton's Movie A 'Nottie'; Stinks Up Box Office

February 15th, 2008 8:15am EST
The Hottie & The Nottie
Paris Hilton's latest attempt to break through as a movie star in The Hottie & The Nottie has proved a huge flop with moviegoers.

Hilton's last starring role was in 2005 horror film House Of Wax.

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...
