The Top 10 Male Models Turned Actors
Who says they're just a pretty face? While we often times view male models as baloon-brained as their stereotypical female counterparts, it's not always so. It's been proven time and time again that the best actors can come from the most unlikely places. Just because male models don't say much, doesn't mean they don't have much to say.

These runway superstars turned leading men have entirely other attributes other than boyish smiles, hot bods, and the ability to look good in just their underwear. They can actually act as well! And sometimes, they do it better than anyone else. No one plays...

January 28th, 2012 3:00pm EST
Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
Director Michael Bay wasn't kidding when he said that the 3D Blu-ray version of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon "will blow you away."

"If you've been waiting for the right time to get a 3D television, this is it," he adds - and he couldn't be more right.

Those sneering at the very thought of bringing 3D into their living rooms and - gasp! - having to wear glasses to get the effect simply haven't experienced the latest technology.

In my experience, not one soul has uttered anything other than "cool," "awesome" or "oh my gosh" when they got their first look.

Like it or not, 3D is here to s...

Fast Five
In less than a week, the fifth Fast and the Furious flick, simply titled Fast Five, will roll into theaters. I know I'll be seeing it on opening day. Though I rarely catch a movie in the theater anymore, much less on its first day, there's something about this franchise that has me addicted.

I can't believe that The Fast and the Furious was ten years ago. How time flies when you're having fun. That first film was undoubtedly fun, tapping into the subculture of street racing. It was a new world for a lot of people - myself included, considering that the sum total of my automotive kno...
