Sarah's Cinema Musings: This Summer's Hits & Misses

August 3rd, 2009 9:52am EDT
The Ugly Truth
Ok, we are almost through the summer season of film, and I, for one, feel like I am trying to resuscitate an almost dead corpse. Sure, there were hits, good films, and technical blockbuster hits, but were they really great or just great within their summer context?

The Blockbusters

Just because a movie generates revenue at the box office does not necessarily translate into a successful well-loved film. X-Men Origins: Wolverine for instance, didn't exactly start the season off with a bang. Star Trek was loved by both fans and non-fans; something that was a bit of a worry before th...

Sandra Bullock Bullied In School

Sandra Bullock Bullied In School
Sandra Bullock dreaded school as a kid because she was teased by bullies for wearing frumpy clothes bought in Germany. The Proposal actress and her younger sister Gesine regularly accompanied their mother Helga, a German opera singer, as she traveled from their home in Virginia to perform in Europe.

But the constant travel abroad left Bullock clueless as to what was fashionable in her native U.S.

The star recalls, "I would make the switch on the plane from speaking English to German or vice versa, depending on whichever country we were going to... I'd come back (to school) from Europe...

Sandra Bullock Steals A Page Out Of Will Ferrell's Play Book

Sandra Bullock to strip
Sandra Bullock has vowed to strip off in all her future movie roles - so she can pocket a bigger salary.

The actress disrobes in new film The Proposal - and the nude scene gave her a taste for getting naked in films. Bullock is sure she'll enjoy a bumper pay day if she keeps taking her clothes off in movies, like fellow comedy actor Will Ferrell.

She says, "If you're naked and you're trying to be sexy, you don't really make as much money as if you're naked and you're funny. Will Ferrell has been on to that for quite some time. Have you noticed how he drops his trousers in every sing...

Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds has landed the coveted role of "Green Lantern" in Warner Bros.' live-action film based on the DC Comics hero, according to

Martin Campbell will direct. The studio is still working on the picture’s budget, but production is expected to begin in January.

Reynolds played Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” a performance that prompted Fox to begin development on a spinoff film. He also starred opposite Sandra Bullock in the romantic comedy “The Proposal,” which crossed the $100 million mark this week.

Reynolds vied for the superhero role along with “The ...

Sandra Bullock Discusses 'Naked Stunt Work'

Sandra Bullock
Sandra Bullock feared her close friendship with pal Ryan Reynolds would be destroyed after they stripped naked together for a scene in The Proposal.

The actress has known Reynolds for nine years and the pair has enjoyed holidays together with Bullock's husband Jesse James and Reynolds' wife Scarlett Johansson.

Their close partnership was put to the test when they were forced to bare all in a sex scene for their new movie.

Shooting lasted three days - but Bullock insists filming the scene with such a close friend helped her make it more convincing.

She tells WENN, "You know, when...

Celebrities Who Get Naked On Screen: A Thin Line Between Classy & Trashy

June 19th, 2009 10:09am EDT
Halle Berry
Hollywood royalty used to use body doubles for filming sex scenes in their films; the thought of them baring it all was almost a joke. But as sex and nudity have taken a more artsy approach on screen, celebrities are jumping at the chance to take their careers to a more risqué level...

Yet, baring it all in films is a very touchy subject with actors. This is a topic young Hollywood and wannabe actors can't seem to grasp. If you are an established actor and nudity is done in good taste, it's viewed by most people as classy. But if you're just starting out, you don't want to be known as ...

Shirtless Ryan Reynolds On Being A Sex Symbol & 'Jon & Kate Plus 8: The Musical'

Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds appears shirtless on a series of four covers for the new 'Must List' issue of Entertainment Weekly. In it he talks about being a sex symbol, 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' and why video games stink.

When asked how he feels about being considered a "sex symbol," 32-year-old Reynolds replied, "If you take any of that seriously, you need to be euthanized, ASAP. There are moments when you can use that to your advantage. But it's really embarrassing. I think I fear more than anything just sounding like a complete a--hole when I have to answer that question."

Among the modest actor's "m...

Sandra Bullock: 'I'm A Bitch In Real Life'

June 16th, 2009 9:08am EDT
The Proposal
Sandra Bullock has been America's sweetheart with lovable romances like While You Were Sleeping and Miss Congeniality. Now she reveals that it's all an act. "I'm a good actress," she said. "That's why you know me as likable."

In her new movie, The Proposal, Bullock plays a harsh boss, Devil Wears Prada style. That, she says, is closer to the real Sandra. "I am a bitch. I am a horrible, evil bitch but I'm a good actress and I can act like a really sweet person. Everyone has it in them. It's such a joy to be able to play someone who is angry. It's a joy and a relief. Having to be nice all ...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

June 15th, 2009 9:02am EDT
Year One
I finally got around to seeing "Terminator Salvation," and I must admit I wasn't terribly impressed. Overall the film was better than "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," but that doesn't say a whole lot because "T3" was pretty bad. Sam Worthington and Anton Yelchin were great, while Christian Bale gave an okay performance. I was expecting a more epic movie considering all its hype.

This week there are five films premiering: "Year One," "The Proposal," "Whatever Works," "Food Inc," and "Dead Snow." There are three I think are worth seeing, and two I think you should wait to rent.

We know Dwayne has a real tough guy persona, but he recently admitted he is scared of roller coasters. The muscly star admits he hates feeling trapped, and strapping into a nerve-wracking thrill ride leaves him on the verge of hyperventilating.

"I wasn't blessed in the upstairs department (but) baby was given some back at birth. Didn't know what to do with it at first, but it's just what I got... I've got great boobs. I love my boobs. They're just not a triple D. I know what to do with them. I wouldn't know what to do with a triple D. They would have a mind of their own. I might be in a different kind of line of business." Sandra Bullock is happy with her breasts.

Sandra Bullock Mocks Ryan Reynolds' Naked Body

May 14th, 2009 9:21am EDT
Ryan Reynolds
Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson share a sexy secret - they've both seen hunky Ryan Reynolds naked in recent months.

Johansson is married to the X-Men Origins: Wolverine star, and Bullock bared all with the actor in their new romantic comedy The Proposal. Sexy Scarlett refuses to talk about her personal life, and Bullock jokes she was far from impressed with her hunky co-star's body.

She says, "Ryan's surgically enhanced, overly tanned and a bit soft around the middle - and the back hair was a bit much to deal with. I'd put him at a four on a scale of one to 10."

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...
