For The 'The Avengers' Assembly – Our Top Ten Superhero Movies Of All Time

May 3rd, 2012 9:00am EDT
The Avengers
As the Avengers finally assemble, bringing the biggest superhero movie yet to the big screen, we have to ask: Of all these darn superhero movies, which ones are the best? Luckily, we can also answer that question we just asked ourselves. Let the debate commence!

10) THE SHADOW (1994)

A lot of movies could’ve taken this spot on the list, but for the sake of mixing things up, I’m going with this oft-dismissed adaptation of the classic radio / pulp / comics hero (many will argue he’s not a superhero, but he fits the criteria). Director Russell Mulcahy crafted a moody, stylish art-deco peri...

Ten Greatest Entertainers of the Decade

Greatest Entertainers of the Decade
This week, we've brought you the Ten Greatest TV Shows, Songs, Albums and Movies of the Decade. Now it's time to roll it all into one with the Ten Greatest Entertainers of the Decade.

This was a decade where entertainment became increasingly fractured. With 500 channels 500 bazillion websites and every medium on-demand, bringing together any significant chunk of people to one thing was a true sign of greatness. In an era when nobody had to agree - making them agree took something beyond the level of entertainer we saw in the past.

With that in mind, here are the Ten Greatest Entert...

Animated Films Adults Can Enjoy

Animated Films Adults Can Enjoy
The movie industry is always looking for the right audiences to sell to, and no age bracket is more lucrative to them than the kiddies. The children can consistently bring in big numbers if they're interested enough to beg their parents to go, and then they want popcorn and candy and soda and please please pleeeease mommy! Love for movies starts in most people at a young age, and while adults may roll their eyes at "G-Force," they'll reluctantly be dragged by their kids or nieces and nephews to see it. However, not all kids movies have proven to be only for children. Recently "Where the Wil...

Best Celebrity Voice Acting Roles

June 12th, 2009 9:22am EDT
Kung Fu Panda
Voice acting is a much more lucrative business than one might imagine, with the actors in question providing their voice for animated movies, video games, television shows, voice overs, and anything else that requires a voice but no face. Some actors do only that kind of work, giving themselves a certain amount of fame in that industry, such as "The Simpsons" cast.

Everything changed when voice acting became a business not only for unknowns, but also an attractive fad for celebrities who wanted to broaden their horizons ... or make a movie "for the kids." Now it seems that no animated...

'Up' Soars To Top Of Box Office

June 1st, 2009 10:03am EDT
New family film Up has soared to the top of the U.S. box office to become the third biggest debut for a Disney Pixar film behind The Incredibles and Finding Nemo.

Early estimates suggest the film, about a cantankerous old man, voiced by Ed Asner, who goes on a flying house adventure with a boy scout and a dog, opened with a $68.2 million opening weekend take.

Much-hyped horror film Drag Me To Hell failed to scare up huge numbers at the box office and opened with $16.6 million to come in third behind Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, which took its 10-day tally to $10...

Final Oscar Nominee Predictions

Slumdog Millionaire
The time has come, after several months of campaigning and voting, we're finally set for the big day. No, not the inauguration. Please. We're talking about Oscar morning.

Those fifteen minutes at the crack of dawn where overly-caffeinated celebs awkwardly read the names of the top five in each category. Always gripping. Also, this is prime time for predictions. All the returns are in, the precursor season is over, so there's not excuses left. Without delay, here are my final Oscar Predictions.

Okay, one delay. I should note that I hate being right. I hate getting predictio...

Underrated & Overrated Films Of The $300 Million Club

August 1st, 2008 12:55pm EDT
"Iron Man", "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and "The Dark Knight" all joined the $300 Million Club this year, swelling its membership to 29 films.

The films in this select group are made up of big-budget action extravaganzas, animated new classics and even some prestige pictures that touched a nerve with a wide audience. Whatever the movie may be, once it hits the triple-century mark, it's a bona fide smash and destined to become a classic.

This milestone is not always a sign of quality; however, as many films that become so popular simply stink. It also is...

Notes & Quotes - Faris, Hunter, 'Wall-E' & Method

July 1st, 2008 8:00pm EDT
Anna Faris
"I was such a late bloomer. I had no boobs and looked so young. None of the guys ever liked me. I had two gorgeous girlfriends, and I felt guys were always trying to be my friends so they could pursue them." Anna Faris was desperate for male attention as a teen.

"I grew up in Georgia, so I grew up around guns. There were many guns in the house. No one ever got hurt." Saving Grace star Holly Hunter reveals her dangerous Southern roots helped build her tough-girl persona.

The success of animated robot movie Wall-E has given top studio Pixar it's ninth successive U.S. box office numb...

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

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT
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)....

Five Best & Worst Films Starring Samuel L. Jackson

March 27th, 2008 4:03pm EDT
Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson is one of those rare character actors who can take even the weakest of scripts and turn the dialogue into pure cinematic gold. Film after film he continues to deliver some of the most memorable one-liners and poetic obscenities, and he always manages to steal the show.

The challenge with ranking Sam Jackson films is ignoring the obvious victor for best role in Pulp Fiction where he plays Jules Winnfield, the Jheri Curl wearing, Bible quoting hit man. Landing the "Fiction" role was no doubt a turning point in Jackson's career and remains to this day his finest film pe...

It's almost here. The Superbowl of Hollywood (a.k.a. The Academy Awards) will be held for its 80th run on February 24. With the announcement ceremony on January 22, I would like to take a moment to look at one of my favorite categories: Best Animated Feature.

The Biggest Movie Mistakes of 2007

December 30th, 2007 12:00pm EST
Jessica Simpson
2007 had some good, some bad, and some just downright ugly and unfortunate events in the entertainment business. Here's my rant on the ugly: The Biggest Movie Mistakes of 2007.

"Grindhouse" is split in two for its DVD release

I just didn't understand why movie goers were not lined up around the block. As soon as I saw the trailer and saw that it had something to do with a chick with a gun for a leg, Kurt Russell, and that Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez were behind it, I was there. What more could you possibly ask for? In this case, it wasn't just a movie, it was an experie...

The Incredibles director Brad Bird is interested in making a follow-up to the hit animated film - but is worried bosses at film company Pixar are against the idea. The filmmaker, who also wrote the 2004 movie, is passionate about the characters from the superhero adventure, but is keeping any ideas for a sequel under wraps in case it doesn't match the appeal of the original, according to

He says, "I love the world. I love the characters, and if I could come up with a story that was as good or better than the original, I'd go there in a second. I have pieces of things tha...

The Incredibles
Family entertainment giant Walt Disney Co. has agreed to a $7.4 billion deal to buy Pixar Animation Studios. The purchase has made Pixar Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs the biggest individual shareholder in Disney.

Finding Nemo
Family entertainment giant Walt Disney Co is reportedly in talks to buy its former partner Pixar Animation Studios. The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Disney executives were considering paying a small premium to the animator's current stock market value of $6.7 billion.

Should the deal go ahead, Pixar Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs would become the biggest individual shareholder in Disney.
