10 Road Trip Movies To Watch Before Your Summer Vacation

June 7th, 2014 11:00am EDT
Thelma & Louise
Ah, road trips. Everyone has at least one fond memory of refusing to ask for directions, arguing with their wife and yelling at the kids to knock it off. Perhaps that's why Hollywood keeps going back to this formula time and again. Here are 10 of our favorite road trip movies of all-time.

Sideways

This 2004 comedy staring Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church features a week long road trip to Santa Barbara Wine Country. Audiences cheered on loveable loser Miles Raymond as he put up with the douchebag antics of his old college roommate Jack Cole. One of the better-received road trip mo...

The Top Pop Culture Twinkies References

November 16th, 2012 5:07pm EST
Family Guy
With Hostess closing its doors, an American icon may be lost on the store shelves - but Twinkies will always live on thanks to loving references in pop culture. Here are a few that come to mind:

Family Guy: On the eve of Y2K, Family guy aired an episode featured around a possible future where missiles launched due to computer error. Peter Griffin, trying to survive the post-apocalyptic wasteland, falls back on the infamous urban legend that Twinkies last for dozens of years. Thus, he sets up a town around a Twinkie factory. The show would later feature Twinkie the Kid in an A&E Biography s...

August 10th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
Emma Stone in The Help
Emma Stone is having a very good year to say the least. In fact, the last couple of years have been increasingly successful for the actress who is pretty much everywhere you look. In 2011, she has appeared in “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” as the hard-to-get love interest of Ryan Gosling as well as making a cameo in “Friends With Benefits” with Justin Timberlake. This week, her new film “The Help” hits theaters and will give audiences their first look at Stone in a more serious role in a film that deals with much more serious topics than her previous work.

The 22-year-old actress is pretty much th...

Q&A: Jesse Eisenberg And Nick Swardson Talk Crazy Driving And Off-Screen Bonding For '30 Minutes Or Less'

August 10th, 2011 11:00am EDT
30 Minutes 1
Director Ruben Fleischer and actor Jesse Eisenberg proved to be formidable combination with their 2009 horror comedy “Zombieland,” which brought a unique sense of humor to the zombie apocalypse. After dabbling in a couple of indies like “Solitary Man” and “Holy Rollers,” Eisenberg went on to achieve mainstream success playing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in the Oscar nominated “Social Network.”

Eisenberg’s limelight didn’t make him forget about Fleischer though. The pair teamed up again to bring us the summer action comedy “30 Minutes or Less.” In the film, two wanna-be criminals (...

Scream Awards
Vampires ruled at the 2010 Scream Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night with "Twilight's" Kristen Stewart and the cast of TV drama "True Blood" winning big prizes at the city's Greek Theater.

Stewart picked up the Best Fantasy Actress honour at the event, held to applaud all things sci-fi, and "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" was named Best Fantasy Movie. It was also a big night for "True Blood," which picked up Best TV Show from number one fan Marilyn Manson.

The drama also claimed the Holy Sh--! Scene of the Year accolade for its much-publicized head-twisting sex encounter, while "True Bl...

Emma Stone's Little Leather VMAs Dress - Hot Or Not?

September 18th, 2010 6:15pm EDT
Emma Stone
Emma Stone stars in "Easy A," which opened in theaters on Friday. The rising star wore a hot leather dress at this year's MTV Video Music Awards last Sunday; and with her new film getting great reviews we're guessing that Emma's movie career is going to get pretty hot too!

Emma says that she's resigned herself to the fact she'll never star in a Broadway musical - because her voice isn't strong enough to cope with the grueling stage demands.

The "Zombieland" star grew up performing in regional theater in her native Arizona, and loved seeing Broadway shows as a kid.

But the 21 year old pre...

'Easy A' Should Launch Emma Stone's Career To Next Level

September 17th, 2010 9:03am EDT
EasyA
You may remember Emma Stone as the girl the Superbad guys had a crush on, or the girl the Zombieland guys had to join in the zombie fight. She finally gets a movie all about her this week. Easy A is her first leading role and it’s likely to launch her into a new strata.

“I think it was less the size of the role and more the wanting to do her justice,” Stone said. “It was about the part. I loved the character so much and I felt so protective of her that doing it wrong or misstepping, you could dislike her if it was done wrong. She's not an unlikable character, and I worried about that all t...

Hot Legs: Emma Stone Gets An Easy A For Hers!

September 14th, 2010 5:24pm EDT
Emma Stone
Emma Stone showed up to the "Easy A" premiere in Los Angeles earlier this week wearing a really, really sparkly gold and blue dress. Is there such a thing as too many sequins?

"Easy A" is a re-imagining of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter." It's a contemporary high school comedy about a scheming student who plots to give her popularity a boost by painting herself the easiest lay in school.

Emma is also starring in the upcoming film "The Help" in which a 1960s-era Mississippi debutante sends her community into an uproar by conducting a series of probing interviews with the black s...

Director Excited For 3-D 'Zombieland 2,' 'Zombies Splattering Into The Lens'

September 10th, 2010 1:24pm EDT
Zombieland
Reuben Fleischer is excited for the 3-D effect in the sequel to horror-comedy hit Zombieland. "I think it's cool to see stuff fly at your face. The idea of zombies splattering into the lens is exciting for me."

Fleischer directed the original, which went on to gross over four times its budget in the box office. In an interview with MTV News, he confirmed that he will be using 3-D cameras to film the sequel - instead of a post-production process that has become popular with films trying to cash in on the extra dimension fad.

While Zombieland 2 was announced in December, the director is sti...

Watching the World Burn: The Appeal of Post Apocalyptic Films

January 15th, 2010 9:35am EST
Book of Eli
On December 31, 1999, the world sat poised to enter a new millennium unsure exactly of what lay ahead. After people got over the initial shock that Y2K did not plunge us into the total chaos predicted by computer experts, somewhat disappointed, they went back to their usual business.

Now that it's the year 2010, a decade into the new era, the next big year people suspect the world could end is 2012, in accordance with the termination of the Mayan calendar. In 2009, people flocked to see "2012" a Roland Emmerich film fictionally portraying the same prophesied destruction the year is s...

25 Top Movies Of 2009 (So Far)

November 26th, 2009 9:44am EST
2009
As with every year there are dozens of great movies but there are even more really bad ones. 2009 will be marked by Quentin Tarantino and Sacha Baron Cohen comebacks along with a bevy of bad movies, highlighted by Megan Fox's performance in Jennifer's Body. There were plenty of good movies and we may have the most fun making fun of the bad and helpless ones, but let's take a look at the best movies of 2009.

Most blockbuster movies are filled with overrated stars (i.e. Will Smith and Tom Cruise) and are seemingly contrived, made only to make money. Thankfully this year there were not as ...

31 Days Of Horror Week 3: 'Rocky Horror,' 'Body Snatchers,' & More

Invasion of the Body Snatchers
With the Halloween fast approaching, Starpulse contributing writer Kris King is watching a horror movie that has passed him by for every day in October. This week Kris does the time warp with "Rocky Horror," gets turned into a pod person

with "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," and gets generally freaked out by "The Vanishing."

October 15 - The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

The culture behind "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" has always sort of lingered on the edge of my awareness. I knew it was there, I knew people liked it and I knew it involved dressing in drag and spanking each othe...

Horror/Comedies: A Growing Cult Phenomenon Of The Last 20 Years

October 21st, 2009 9:42am EDT
Fido
Over the last 20 years cinema has changed significantly with regards to the horror genre. Modern horror/comedies like "Zombieland" are able to thrive in theaters due to a fan base built by cult cinema.

During the late 1980s, jaded audiences grew tired of the standard monster movies and slasher flicks that were being done to death. As the era of Reagan conservatism came to a close, fans desensitized to the violence of horror films were looking for something to make blood and guts exciting again. Horror-philes had already whet their appetite for a different type of horror movie after se...

Are Zombies The New Vampires?

October 19th, 2009 10:56am EDT
Zombieland
Let's get this out of the way first: I'm a zombie fan. I don't like vampires, and I don't think that Edward is particularly sexy. Sorry. But as an entertainment commentator for Starpulse I'd have to admit, with some reluctance, that vampires have zombies over a barrel. And it doesn't look like that's ever going to change. The hit television series True Blood, and the media swallowing ultra-franchise Twilight, have demonstrated a renewed interest in these banal blood-suckers. While movies like Zombieland continue the trend of zombie comedies which, although undeniably funny, only re-enforce ...

Our Favorite Movie Cameos

October 14th, 2009 2:20pm EDT
Our Favorite Movie Cameos
There are a lot of modern movies that love to give little winks at the audience, and one of the easiest ways to do that is through the use of cameo appearances. A cameo is when a well known celebrity or important person shows up for a brief appearance in a movie. It can be a non-speaking random role, or perhaps a whole scene that steals the show. Whatever the case may be, oftentimes in a film the cameo ends up being the most memorable part of the whole movie. Take "Zombieland" for example, out in theaters now, but there's no spoilers here. Just go see the film and you'll see. Here's a look ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Couples Retreat,' 'An Education' & More

October 5th, 2009 9:04am EDT
Couples Retreat
Months of waiting for the horror/comedy "Zombieland" were thankfully not spent in vain. Both hilarious and poignant, this film reminds us that even in the post-apocalyptic world that home and family are what you make them.

Narration by the lead character Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) provides a great deal of humor, especially as he expounds upon his rules of survival in the zombie infested world. These rules make frequent appearance on screen during relevant moments, adding additional laughs.

Woody Harrelson is perfect as Tallahassee, the fearless badass with nothing to lose. He's ...

Zombie Flicks Rarely Disappoint: 5 Not-To-Miss Films

October 2nd, 2009 9:05am EDT
Zombieland
All zombies want to do is rise from the dead and eat people, with a preference for brains. This is the sole motivation of the flesh-eating creatures, and yet we can watch them do this over and over, whether it's in a campy funny way as in Shaun of the Dead or the brand new Woody Harrelson film Zombieland, or even in an artistic way as in 28 Days Later. The psyche of the zombie is utterly simple. There's something about rotting, walking corpses biting into the necks of their victims and/or eating entrails that is utterly entertaining.

Zombieland
I've been going over my zombie survival plan and acquiring a variety of weapons in preparation for the arrival of "Zombieland" in theaters this week. Actually, I haven't been acquiring weapons since purchasing a gun is a lengthy process in Massachusetts, but I have been foaming at the mouth to see this zombie comedy since I watched the initial trailer several months ago.

Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson look like the perfect odd couple paired together in the hopes of survival. Eisenberg oozes the fraidy cat vibe in every clip I've seen of the movie, while Harrelson does his best mac...

With summer coming to an end, there's one major thing to consider: what's going to be entertaining for the next three months? We assume you're thinking the same thing (great minds being alike and all), so here's the rundown of what Hollywood has coming:

Gamer (09/04/09)

Gamer will be one of the coolest movies of the season because it actually manages to bring a fairly new concept to the action genre. In the near future, with mind control technology pretty much commonplace, billionaire Ken Castle (Michael...
