The Greatest Movie Scenes Set In The Shower

shower scenes
There's really nothing like a good shower. Hot water, privacy, decorative soaps- if it was up to us, we'd spend all day in there.

Showers in movies, however, are a mixed bag. They can be hilarious (or, with the addition of a companion, romantic music and a little slow-motion, they can get pretty steamy) but they're also a hotbed of stabbings, spider attacks and all kinds of bloodshed.

The history of showers in movies is a long and illustrious one. So to honor cinema's many instances of people stripping down to nothing and being filmed in an extremely private bathroom setting, we've ranked...

10 Movies So Bad, They're Good

10 Movies So Bad, They're Good
For every good movie, there's likely at least two bad ones. And that's okay - because some of them are so bad that we fall in love with them in a whole other way. Remember Santa Claus Conquers the Martians? Plan 9 From Outer Space? Sharknado? And those are just the most famous films that were honestly less than stellar.

But there are plenty of other bad movies that are oddly worthwhile, and so we've gone looking for the ones that haven't gained infamy. Those terrible, yet somehow strangely endearing, movies that have somehow escaped mainstream notice. The ones we still talk about that migh...

From 'Homefront' To 'Highlander' Actor Clancy Brown Goes Career Interview

3/12/2014 11:20am EDT
From Victor Kruger aka The Kurgen to the voice of money hungry Krusty Krab boss Mr. Krabs, nobody has had such a widespread and long spanning career like actor Clancy Brown. Having a body of work that includes films like "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Highlander," not to mention having collaborated with directors like Kathryn Bigelow and Paul Verhoeven, Brown is the epitome of the working class character actor. His most recent flick "Homefront" hits DVD and Blu-ray this week and has Brown playing a matter of fact small town sheriff pitted against action man Jason Statham. The film, whic...

Are you ready to laugh at another bad movie? After RiffTrax brought back two old classics last year, this Thursday the trio who turn horrible flicks into great nights out are back, and setting their sights on Starship Troopers in a one-night-only engagement. BFTV called up RiffTrax's Mike Nelson last week to ask what we can expect from the Troopers riff, and why he enjoys working with fellow riffers Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy.

"There's many variations of a bad movie," explained Mike, who, along with Bill and Kevin. came to pop-culture prominence with the TV series Mystery Science Theate...

Jake Busey
Gary Busey's actor son Jake is preparing to check into a rehabilitation center to address his issues with alcohol.

The 39 year old is seeking professional help after he was recently hospitalized with alcohol poisoning.

The Starship Troopers actor hopes the stint in rehab will help him get on the "straight path" in life.

He tells, "After getting out of the hospital - I got a little alcohol poisoning, a little too much fun - I'm on the straight path now, I'm going clean living. (I had) a little too much beer. That's the big plan - I'll be checking into rehab in the next week."

Director Neill Blomkamp Gives Us Insight On The Intense Sci-fi Thriller 'District 9'

8/3/2009 10:36am EDT
"District 9" rose up -- as writer and director Neill Blomkamp likes to say -- from the ashes of the failed "Halo" project that Neill was set to direct. As a result, he was pretty much given carte blanch on what he wanted do with "District 9." The South African native sat down with us in Midtown Manhattan to discuss what some (Hello!) are calling an instant sci-fi classic and the very real social issues that drive the film.

Mike: Someone asked me what I thought of "District 9" but to only use ten words because they didn't want to know too much. I just used the word "intense" ten times.


Top Movie Cops List

6/19/2008 10:49am EDT
I know what your thinking. When ranking the top movie cops of all time did we rank six cops or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is Starpulse, the most powerful website in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

Hey, isn’t that...? You know, that guy. The guy that always plays someone in the military. He was in, uh, Syriana, The Kingdom... Oh yeah! He was the father of the emo kid in American Beauty!

After reading this you can impress your friends! Win the movie game (the one where you name an actor, someone names a film he or she was in, next player names another actor in that film, etc....

Reverse Typecasting: What Happens When An Actor's Current Role Destroys Past Work

3/26/2008 12:02pm EDT
James Gandolfini
Typecasting is an actor's worst nightmare. The last thing a professional wants to happen is getting pigeonholed into the same role time after time following a breakthrough performance. Usually this happens at the beginning of a career, such as the case of Bob Denver. Denver was Gilligan for the rest of his career and essentially the rest his life. In fact, we dare you to think of one role Jim Nabors played other than Gomer Pyle (a prize to anyone who shouted out "Lugs Harvey in Stroker Ace").

In recent years, we have noticed a new phenomenon. In the past it was not as common for actors...
