Titanic
"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.

Some find it sexy and attractive, while others find it downright disgraceful; but in either case there are plenty of guys doing it lately. While our first article may have taken a positive slant on the issue at hand, this writer is only creeped out by these men who are obviously more concerned with their image than anything else.

Has Hollywood Run Out of Ideas?

Talk about digging something out of the woodwork. In the summer of 2007, the 1964-1973 cartoon "Underdog" was brought to life on the big screen, and we have to wonder why? Kids probably enjoyed it, and "Und...

So naturally, as soon as Jackson's name was attached, every blogger from Perez Hilton to The Superficial and news collective from ...
