A murder, a hunt for a killer, and an invest...

Guy Pearce is well known for his dramatic work in movies like Memento and The King’s Speech. Viewers will see his physical side in Lockout, as the action hero Snow. Pearce has a strapping body with arms exploding out of a tank top.

“I just went back to the gym. I used to work out in the gym a lot when I was younger. I was a competition body builder when I was 16 or some...

J.J. Abrams
Holy dream team Batman! Geek powerhouse J.J. Abrams is reportedly teaming up with Jonah Nolan to shop around a crime-thriller that Nolan wrote. If you haven’t heard of Jonah Nolan but think his name sounds familiar, that’s because he is Christopher Nolan’s brother and helped write 'The Dark Knight', 'The Prestige' and also wrote a short story that 'Memento' was based off of.

That’s enough right there to make anyone want to work with this guy. Throw in Abrams and I’m sure all the studios are clamoring to secure this project A.S.A.P.! No title has been given to the project yet but I’m ...

Point/Counterpoint: Should M. Night Shyamalan Stop Making Films?

7/11/2008 9:52am EDT
M. Night Shyamalan
When somebody mentions the name M. Night Shyamalan it evokes an immediate reaction. For some it's, "He's the guy who did The Sixth Sense, which was great," and for others it's, "Yeah, but his last few films sucked."

Two Starpulse writers have their own opinions about Shyamalan and whether he is just gearing up for further success or whether it's time for him to call it quits:


Alright, people need to lay off M. Night Shyamalan. Sure he is a little cocky (He stated that The village was one of the greatest ideas ever) and his films have seemed to have dipped in quality, b...

Joe Pantoliano
Everyone knows that sex sells in America, with entire careers in mainstream entertainment being built around sex tapes, Playboy spreads, and cleavage. So when it comes to satire, there's no better a medium than pornography, a topic that intrigues as much as it polarizes. In The Amateurs, a group of small town friends begin a journey to make a stag-film, and Joe Pantoliano (The Matrix, The Sopranos, Memento) is Some Idiot, the autistic auteur who takes on the project. Starpulse spoke with Joey Pants about The Amateurs and the various issues it explores, including stereotypes, relationships, ...
