With both "Hell’s Kitchen" and "Top Chef" in their seventh season while Food Network is putting out shows such as "Iron Chef America," "Next Food Network Star," and "Cupcake Wars," it seems that America can’t get enough of food competition shows during the summer.

Meyers co-wrote and co-produced the 1980 comedy Private Benjamin; she recently told the New York Times that “everybody turned that movie down. Everybody. More than once.” It was abnormal to have a film not only starring a strong woman, but also wi...

The Pacific
“The Pacific,” a ten-part miniseries produced by Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman, and Steven Spielberg, chronicles the stories of three real-life World War II Marines across the Pacific Theater of Operations. This epic is based on the memoirs written by Eugene Sledge (portrayed by Joe Mazzello) and Robert Leckie (portrayed by James Badge Dale).

This Friday, the romantic comedy "She's Out of My League" hits theaters. In the film, a sexy event planner, Molly (Alice Eve), crosses paths with and begins dating Kirk (Jay Baruchel), a goofy and gawky airport employee.

This Oscar season, Quentin Tarantino has earned himself both a Best Director and Best Writer nomination for his work on "Inglourious Basterds," which is up for a total of 8 Oscars, including Best Picture.

Following the newest wave of success of Basterds, perhaps Tarantino could try his hand at taking over already-established franchises? Here are four movies we would love to see Quentin Tarantino di...
