Some films earn critical acclaim and you only want to watch them once. Goodfellas? We could watch it on loop...
What is the most compulsively watchable film of all time? Not the greatest film – there are lists dedicated to solving that particular conundrum scattered all over the internet. Rather, the one film that begs you to return again and again, the one you can’t help but see through to the end when you happen to bump into it on a late night channel surf. Citizen Kane, Vertigo, 8 ½: greats, undisputed classics long vaunted by critics, but not necessarily the kinds of movies with the irresistible pull of a truly, compulsively watchable movie.
What could be the best of these? Raiders Of The Lost Ark, with its peak-Spielberg action-adventure stylings? Airplane!, a riotous and unfailingly quotable comedy that spawned a thousand imitators? Could even one as »
Bill Maher laid into Donald Trump on Friday, mocking the administration’s bogus claims that the crowd at his inauguration were bigger than they actually were. “This is about d–k,” Maher said,pointing to his nether regions. “This is about a guy who never brought a woman to orgasm!

New Line Cinema has tapped Horrible Bosses and Baywatch director Seth Gordon to helm Boston College Fix, which tells the true story of the Boston College basketball point-shaving scandal of the 1970s.
Deadline is reporting that the film, which is being written by Robert Carlock (30 Rock, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot), will delve into the match-fixing scandal, where notorious gangsters Jimmy Burke and Henry Hill (played by Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas) and a group of Pittburgh mobsters infiltrated the 1979-79 Boston College basketball team, orchestrating a scheme to fix the outcome of games. It was eventually uncovered by the FBI and a federal prosecutor, who found an unlikely way to take them down.
The story of the Boston point-shaving scandal was previously told in the Emmy-winning Espn ’30 for 30′ documentary Playing for the Mob. »

Home invasion movies have been around since the days when Kurt Russell and Ray Liotta headlined A-list fare (Unlawful Entry). David Fincher has even played around in the sub-genre with the visual trickery of Panic Room, and most recently we had You’re Next, which presented itself as homage but descended into Scooby Doo cliché.
Arguably the biggest sleeper hit of 2016, with $150m worldwide from a budget of just under $10M, Fede The Evil Dead Alvarez’s Don’t Breathe is also the most effective domestic terror film since the original Straw Dogs. Why, you might ask? Step inside and we’ll show you……
Time and time again, films fail to make you care for the fate of the characters. A recent point in case was Blair Witch. Released during the same theatrical window as Don’t Breathe, it failed on a commercial »

When asked about her new project with Drake, Lopez said, "He just asked me to do a song with him and that's what we've been doing."
"We'll see if it's on his next album," she continued, staying tight-lipped when asked about those romance rumors with the 30-year-old rapper.
Lopez did, however, open up about the new season of her crime drama, revealing she's all about performing her own stunts.
"It can get intense," she explained. "I mean, the scenes that I do towards the end of the season were really, really rough. Lots of fighting and things like that. I'm not afraid. I know everything »
