Cary Elwes Revisits His 'Princess Bride' Experience
Cary Elwes seems like a man with many great stories to tell. After all, he's been excellent in a number of interesting projects, including Glory, Saw, Psych and The X-Files. His most beloved role, though, is undoubtedly Westley in The Princess Bride.

Now Cary is opening up the world of that classic film to its generations of fans, looking back on its production with a new memoir. We caught up with him last week for a few quick words about reflecting on his Princess Bride adventure.

16 Of The Coolest Swords From Pop Culture

May 19th, 2014 2:32pm EDT
The Last Samurai
Swords - what's there to say about them? Nobody uses them anymore, which is a real shame. Swords remind us of an age when men were men, and they focused on really manly things, like chivalry, honor and killing a man with a single blow. Alas, those days are gone, and swords have retired from the battlefield.

The Princess Bride
Mandy Patinkin and Billy Crystal are at odds over a possible remake of their cult movie "The Princess Bride" - the funnyman thinks it's time to revisit the story while Patinkin doesn't want to be alive when it hits the big screen.

He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I hope I'm dead before that (remake) happens. I don't want to have to go through that."

But Crystal would like to see the Rob Reiner film back in cinemas, and he's urging fans to "start a Twitter thing."

Pirates, Pirates And More Pirates On Talk Like A Pirate Day

Captain Jack Sparrow - Johnny Depp
September 19th marks a buzz worthy day for certain fanatics. What started out as a heated game of racquetball quickly became a world-wide phenomenon. June 6th, 1995 marked the first day of everything we love about British frivolity in the form of "Talk Like a Pirate Day". Scoff you may, but the truth is, "Talk Like a Pirate Day" stands for more than just wenching and boozing. It's about remembering the lore, the history, and, let's be honest, the slang that most love about these peg-legged and eye-patched folk.

Talklikeapirate.com states that creators Mark Summers (no, not Marc Summers fro...

The Sixth Sense
There are some movies that live forever in the minds of humanity generation after generation. They span decades, continents, and cross racial and gender divides.
