'The Dictator' And 15 Other Beards That Steal Movies

May 16th, 2012 1:07pm EDT
dictator_beard-300x220
Sacha Baron Cohen brings his trademark ridicu-shock humor to his new film "The Dictator," but it may be his beard that steals the show.

He plays Admiral General Aladeen, deposed dictator of the (fictional) Republic of Wadiya, who flees to the U.S. when his country converts to democracy. As a dictator, he's used to ruling with an iron fist, an incorrigible sense of righteous cruelty, and a thick, bushy beard that could house several terrified baby sparrows.

Aladeen may feel like a fish out of water in New York City, but he'd feel right at home among Hollywood's most magnificent beards of a...

Uma Thurman
A man convicted of stalking Uma Thurman has lost his bid for freedom after a judge rejected his argument that the actress is "not a vulnerable victim."

Jack Jordan, who was convicted of stalking the Kill Bill actress in 2008, is facing fresh charges after allegedly violating a restraining order by calling Thurman's cell and New York office phone in October.

He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of criminal contempt and went to back to court in New York on Wednesday to ask for the charges to be reduced. Jordan's lawyers also asked the judge to reduce his $500,000 bail, arguing he poses n...

A man awaiting trial for allegedly breaking a restraining order by attempting to contact Uma Thurman has been given the chance to post bail - if he can raise $250,000.

Jack Jordon, who was convicted of stalking the Kill Bill actress in 2008, is accused of breaching a protective order by calling Thurman's cell and New York office phone, prompting her to lodge a complaint with police.

He was arrested during a raid at his mother's Maryland home in November and was placed under doctors' supervision. Jordon was subsequently charged with two counts of criminal contempt and appeared in court l...

Quentin Tarantino Accused Of Favoritism At Venice Film Festival

September 12th, 2010 11:12pm EDT
Quentin Tarantino
An alleged fix has rocked the Venice Film Festival after a group of Italian journalists accused jury president Quentin Tarantino of favoring ex-girlfriends, pals and associates.

The outcry came after the filmmaker's former lover Sofia Coppola claimed the festival's main prize, the Golden Lion, on Saturday for her drama "Somewhere."

Tarantino has since insisted her win was unanimous, but the local media is still questioning the director's choice, especially after his friend Alex de la Iglesia won two prizes for his film Balada triste de trompeta and one of his mentors, Monte Hellman, was h...

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music

July 1st, 2009 11:15am EDT
Shocking music deaths
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.

Regardless of the cause, take a look back at these musical icons that have left us way, way, way too soon - yet have left us with legacies that will live on forever. The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...

Moviemaker Martin Scorsese and actor Michael Madsen have paid tribute to David Carradine, who died on Thursday.

The Kill Bill star's naked body was discovered hanging in a Bangkok, Thailand hotel suite. Local reports suggested he committed suicide but a statement from Carradine's representative indicates the actor died when a sex act went wrong.

B-Movies: The Best Of The Worst

B-Movies The Best Of The Worst
Who's to say that the best movies are actually good? Sure, we've all seen some of the best movies ever made, but then again we've all seen some pretty bad movies too. After all, You Don't Mess With The Zohan made over $95 million since its release - that's a lot of people seeing one dumb movie.

However, sometimes a film can be so absolutely wretched that it comes full circle into being good again; at this point, you've entered the territory of the bad B-movie. B-movies walk a thin line between incredibly entertaining and downright unbearable. In order to get the most out of these movi...

The Best & Worst Films By Quentin Tarantino

April 24th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Quentin Tarantino
The serendipitous career of eccentric movie producer, director and writer Quentin Tarantino is a complex one. Tarantino has made a name for himself by creating nonlinear storylines and filming multiple perspectives from different characters in his movies - a technique that strays from the more commonly used straight-time storyline.

His films are not off the wall, but they invoke an element of surprise that comes from the small details within a scene that catches one off guard and by adding mysterious elements that never get explained. A good example of this was in Pulp Fiction when M...

Film Feature: Improbable Survivors

January 28th, 2008 11:12am EST
Live Free Or Die Hard
Movies are entertainment. We're supposed to suspend our disbelief so we can be entertained and so we don't bog ourselves down in the specifics. In some movies we can do just that - believe - and we can go with the flow. Others provide circumstances that are just too preposterous to take at face value.

Following are some of those movies and characters that I couldn't just forget about and found myself picking apart afterwards. I initially enjoyed each and every one of them, but on further viewing, they were just too much to accept.

Actress Daryl Hannah is embracing her forties - because she lacked the life experience to fully enjoy herself in her younger days. The 47-year-old blasts the myth that youth is the best time of life, insisting she spent hers anxious and unhappy.

The Kill Bill star explains, "I hated being young. Everyone says how wonderful it is to be a young person. That is far from the case for many people, but they dare not say it at the time. Aging is great. Maturity has brought me peace of mind. When I look back, I could have saved myself so much anxiety."
