Ha, we had almost forgotten about Bruce Springsteen in "High Fidelity" and David Bowie in "Zoolander" (we default to Billy Zane on that one). And you can't beat Bill Murray in "Zombieland." And even though we would've picked Bruce Willis in "Ocean's Twelve" over Bruce Willis in "What Just Happened?," this is a pretty damn good collection (courtesy of AnimalNY) of the celebrity world self-congratulating itself by breaking its own fourth wall. Or ... something.
Anyway, we agree with FilmDrunk in that the meta-levels may one day reach such an extreme that movies will nothing more than celebrities playing us pretending to be them and everything will be a sequel to "The Human Centipede."
Here is the full list of cameos, in order of appearance ...
3. Neil Patrick Harris, "Harold and Kumar Go to While Castle"
5. Kurt Vonnegut, »

Has it already been a year since I last did this?! Wow, 2012 is just about behind us and our beloved genre has seen some interesting offerings this year. I honestly had a really tough time coming up with 10 great horror selections, but then again, there are still a handful of titles I missed out on. For example, I hear great things about The Loved Ones, but have yet to see it. I’m fairly positive I’ll love [Rec] 3 once I get to it, and The Collection also seems like my kind of bat-shit lunacy. Also on my wish list is the anthology pic V/H/S. And while I really, really wanted to pick the Maniac remake (which would’ve been my number one) and the Soska Sister’s American Mary, neither of those saw an official release in 2012. (They’re both coming in 2013 for sure.) Unlike previous years, I »

Hope Springs, 2012.
Directed by David Frankel.
After thirty years of marriage, a middle-aged couple attends an intense, week-long counseling session to work on their relationship.
It's not often we get a grown up romantic comedy, but after seeing Hope Springs I think maybe we should start seeing more of them. Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) have been married for quite some time but over the last decade or so they have sadly grown apart. They have the same routine everyday, they barely talk or make eye contact and they even sleep in separate rooms. After so much of this Kay is fed up and wants to get their relationship back to how it should be. She sets up a week long couples counseling session in Maine with Dr. »
He's the newly-minted king of the mornings, having nabbed the much-sought after co-host spot on "Live! With Kelly," stepping into the large shoes left behind by Regis Philbin. Luckily, Strahan,a 6'5" former New York Giants defensive lineman (who still holds the NFL record for most sacks), has more than lived up to the task, meshing wonderfully with his energetic sidekick Kelly Ripa. The 41-year-old sat down with Elle to talk about his famed gap-tooth smile, childhood celebrity crush, favorite romantic movie and his thoughts on marriage after surviving a nasty divorce. On the gap between his teeth:"I was really close to closing it up. I was at the dentist having him do mock-ups. I thought about it, man.I was in my twenties. I was playing with the Giants. There’s so much pressure to be perfect. You can fix everything now. For me, I made the conscious »

Chris Evert is much happier as a sportscaster than she used to be.
The winner of singles titles in three Wimbledons, six U.S. Opens, seven French Opens and two Australian Opens is nearing the third year of her Espn deal as a Grand Slam tennis commentator. Shortly after retiring from the game, she joined NBC Sports in a similar role, but she admits it took more distance from her days of competing to get comfortable with her TV job.
"I may not be the sharpest tool in the box," Evert muses to Zap2it, "but I know what I see in a match. And I know I'm instinctively pretty spot-on when it comes to strategy and what's actually happening on the court, what the players are trying to achieve and what their styles are. That's my contribution, trying to share something maybe before it happens, or telling viewers something they can't see. »
Director: Mark Tonderai. Writers: David Loucka and Jonathan Mostow. Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Max Thieriot, Elisabeth Shue, Gil Bellows, Nolan Gerard Funk, Eva Link and Allie MacDonald. House at the End of the Street is a mediocre thriller that was released in theatres September 23rd. The film received a solid welcome, but this reviewer is not sure why. This PG-13 horror film lacks tension, conflict, and any meaningful terror. Instead, House at the End of the Street feels like a horror film with training wheels. The film is too safe and mostly predictable. The film's story involves a mother and daughter duo. Elisabeth Shue plays Sarah, the overprotective mother. Meanwhile, Elissa is the rebellious daughter played by Jennifer Lawrence. These two characters move next door to the "murder house." Their neighbour, Ryan (Max Thieriot), is the only survivor of a double murder orchestrated by his sister, Carrie Anne. Ryan's parents were »

Despite reports earlier this year that Rko Pictures was trying to revive the property as a film trilogy, it turns out "The Saint" franchise is instead going back to its most familiar format - television.
Adam Rayner ("Hunted", "Hawthorne") and Eliza Dushku ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Dollhouse") are attached to star in a new pilot based on Leslie Charteris' book series. The books followed Simon Templar (Rayner), a thief who sees himself as a modern day Robin Hood as he steals from only other criminals - corrupt politicians, arms dealers, drug runners, white slavers and so on.
The property has been adapted many times before, most famously as a long-running 60's British TV series with Roger Moore in the title role. Phil Noyce directed a film adaptation in 1997 starring Val Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue, while Ian Ogilvy and Simon Dutton portrayed the character on the small screen in the 70's and 80's respectively. »

We usually see Selena supporting Justin at his concerts, so it's refreshing to know that Justin also supports his girlfriend when she's working. Read on for more details. Selena Gomez's Behaving Badly co-star Elizabeth Shue reveals that Justin Bieber visited Selena on the film set. How sweet! "He was really cool, he really was," Elizabeth told E! News. "My 6-year-old loves him, and I was this close to saying something to him, but I was like, 'He probably gets that from everybody in the world.'" Back To the Future star Elizabeth, 49, had only great things to say about Selena. "She's so down-to-earth and so committed and cared so much about her work," Elizabeth said. "We have this great scene together. My character, unfortunately, thinks she's taken two Tylenols, but instead she has taken two tabs of Ecstasy. So I get to meet Selena for the first time on Ecstasy. »

If Justin Bieber did get a little too jealous over pics of a kissing scene between Selena Gomez and Behaving Badly costar Nat Wolff, it's not like he didn't know what was going on. The Biebs had visited Gomez on the set. "He was really cool, he really was," Behaving Badly costar Elisabeth Shue told me at the Children's Defense Fund's Beat the Odds gala. "My 6-year-old loves him, and I was thisclose to saying something to him, but I was like, 'He probably gets that from everybody in the world.'" Shue and Gomez kind of play rivals in the indie. "I play a Mrs. Robinson–type of character," Shue said, referring to the iconic cougar in The Graduate. »

The first mystery we got upon meeting Julie Finlay was this: What happened in Seattle that made her stop working for Db?
This week, "CSI on Fire" answered that question, while providing a wealth of information about the newest team member.
While the biggest part of me is happy to finally know why Fin left Seattle and what the case was that resulted in her leaving, a small part feels cheated that the show resolved the entire case in one episode.
Don’t get me wrong, I glad that they didn't pull a “Nate Haskell” and drag the story out way longer than it needed to be, but at the same time, Cooley (Dylan Walsh) was so much fun to watch facing off against Fin, I wouldn't have minded a two-episode arc.
Of course, I can’t be to disappointed because as a bonus we got to meet Fin’s »

After several bodies are unearthed in the middle of the desert on tonight’s CSI, Finlay (Elisabeth Shue) is going to be forced to unearth her past.
And as Shue previews, this trip down memory lane, which finds Finlay traveling to to retrace the steps of the case that got her fired from her old job, could land the passionate investigator in some hot water. “It was good to finally explain what got her fired and to also show what gets her in trouble. She sometimes gets too passionate about things and oversteps her boundaries — but she’s usually right ,” says Shue. »

Movie Review: "Chasing Mavericks"; Star Cast: Gerard Butler, Jonny Weston, Levin Rambin, Elisabeth Shue, Abigail Spencer; Directors: Curtis Hanson and Michael Apted; Rating: *** 1/2 - surfs up ambition.
An inspirational movie, thoroughly warm with human emotions and entertaining, "Chasing Mavericks" is a guide on 'how to chase your dreams'.
It is a true, touching story of teenage surfing legend - Jay Moriarity and his guru Frosty Hesson, and how they connect way more than on a wave!
The film focuses on Jay (Jonny Weston), a decent kid with a dream, a battered surfboard and a troubled family life. His dad has. »

PG-13 horror movies are the absolute worst and Mark Tonderai’s House at the End of the Street is no exception. It’s actually one of the worst PG-13-rated horror films I’ve seen in the past five years. It’s just a bad movie through-and-through and I cannot believe The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence even bothered attaching herself to the project. This probably happened long before she signed onto Silver Linings Playbook.
House at the End of the Street has poor structure and several weak reveals that manage to continue topping each other. Just thinking about it gives me the shakes.
Our very own Jonathan Lack didn’t care for it much either. Here’s what he said in his »

I hate to admit it, but despite the presence of Elizabeth Shue and Jennifer Lawrence, I had fairly low expectations for The House at the End of the Street, a story that features the two actresses playing a mother/daughter duo who moves in next to a house with a violent past. However, the thriller is actually a creepy affair with a few really good performances. If you missed The House at the End of the Street, you.ll be able to catch the flick when it hits Blu-ray and DVD on January 8. It.s a little surprising Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment would not try to market the Blu-ray and DVD release a little earlier to try and capitalize on the holiday rush. At least, it.s a little surprising until you get to the actual set, which will be pretty barebones. In fact the set is so lacking »
