Summer is no fun without a truly insane, over-the-top action movie. Fast & Furious 6 seems to be the one to beat this year…. unless The Smurfs 2 has a really incredible Parkour chase. But even Vin Diesel vs. a tank cannot come close to the ludicrous brilliance of 1991′s Point Break. It’s got a pretty beach setting. An even prettier cast (Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze). A non-brain-taxing plot (Surfing bank robbers!). And Gary Busey! What more do you need? Okay, well here are a few more reasons why it’s the best summer movie of all time:
Because it’s about »

Let’s be honest, when it comes to grand romantic gestures, the best most of us can hope for is a six pack and a chick flick. Maybe a quick stop at one of those yogo-bogo health-fad fro-yo stations that are perfect when you don’t want your date to think you’re taking this dating thing too seriously. Course, for most of us single folks, any night not spent watching Twilight with our cats is a good night (I may or may not have done this).
But for our fabulous and famous movie counterparts, dating is never awkward, rejection comes with hot sex and a new love interest, and everyone lives happily ever after (well, mostly). While we, the viewer, shovel ice cream into our faces and try not to cry over our sad pathetic love lives and the fact that we can only afford Pbr.

Do you guys love Ke$ha? Because if not, you should really consider it. She's fun, she loves to dance, and she'd enjoy having sexual relations with the ghost of a dinosaur. There is absolutely nothing that isn't 100% lovable about this girl. Except her music. Her music can get kind of annoying.But check out this cute thing she said about her love of dancing:"If I'm bored, I'll just start dancing. People think I have some sort of mental disorder because I just start dancing anywhere if there's good music playing. I'll just start dancing when I'm totally sober, people think I must be on something, but no, I just like to dance."And then here's the thing about the dinosaur, that came up when she was asked which three ghosts she would most like to have sex with:"Well, I'd like to have sex with a dinosaur, Liberace and Patrick Swayze. »

These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people.

Katherine Kelly Lang came by her acting career naturally. Now a first-time Daytime Emmy nominee as Brooke Logan -- her role since CBS' weekday serial "The Bold and the Beautiful" premiered in 1987 -- she has an actress mother, Judith Lang ("Count Yorga, Vampire").
And her grandfather shot some of Hollywood's most classic movies: Charles Lang was an Oscar-winning cinematographer whose credits included "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir," the original "Sabrina," "Some Like it Hot," "The Magnificent Seven" and "Charade."
"He was an amazing man," the soap star tells Zap2it. "He had a great life ... I mean, 18 Academy Award nominations? He was the best of the best at that time, but I think I appreciated him more when I was older and probably not at a younger age. I grew up around that business, so it was natural for me."
Lang parlayed her early familiarity with showbiz into her professional debut, »
Whoopi Goldberg recently made her directorial debut at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. Her groundbreaking documentary, "I Got Somethin' To Tell You," is about the life of African-American and openly lesbian stand-up comic Moms Mabley, born Loretta Mary Aiken.
The North Carolina-born comedian graced stages such as New York City's Apollo Theatre and Carnegie Hall with her quirky acts touching on racism and romance between the 1920s and 1960s. Mabley came out in her late twenties and often made her sexuality a part of her routines.
She appeared in the 1933 film "The Emperor Jones" alongside Paul Robeson, which was inducted into the Library Of Congress' National Film Registry Library in 1999. Her wardrobe in the film was markedly androgynous, an unusual sight on a woman in the 1930s.

Demi Moore joined several Oscar-winning Hollywood stars at AFI's Night at the Movies event in NYC last night. She wore a sheer jumpsuit as she mingled with stars like Harrison Ford, Sally Field, and Cher, who were all at the event to introduce one of their classic movies during the film-lovers bash. Demi presented Ghost, her 1990 film with Patrick Swayze, while Cher introduced Moonstruck and Sally chatted about Norma Rae. This was a rare red carpet appearance for Demi, whose last public event was to check out Ferragamo's Spring runway collection alongside Nicole Richie and Rachel Zoe back in January. She didn't make it to the Sundance Film Festival this year, but her new film with Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning, Very Good Girls, did premiere to decent reviews at the annual event.

In 1983, Francis Ford Coppola had plenty of greatness under his belt from The Godfather, The Conversation, The Godfather: Part II and Apocalypse Now, but some may say 1982's One from the Heart was the beginning of the end... at least the end of the Coppola we came to know in the '70s. Sure, The Godfather: Part III saw seven Oscar nominations, but ask anyone and they're sure to point it out as the weakest of the trilogy by a mile. Films such as Peggy Sue Got Married, Dracula and even The Rainmaker aren't half-bad and I'll happily admit to loving 90% of Tetro, but the Coppola star doesn't shine as it once did. Such a situation can result in films being forgotten, overlooked and never revisited again. The lack of appreciation for the last 30 years of Coppola's directorial career has allowed me to easily avoid -- wrongly or not -- »

Today, the Film Distributors’ Association (Fda) have announced the results of an interesting and quite substantial poll to determine UK cinema audiences’ favourite movie icons of all time…and there might be one or two surprises in who comes to mind for true big screen icons.
The top twenty spans seven decades of the cinema, from the 1940s to the 2000s. It embraces a ‘who’s who’ of stylish screen heroes – and some villains – who have made an indelible impression on audiences’ hearts and minds in successive generations to earn their places in cinematic folklore.
The survey was conducted online for Fda by ShowFilmFirst in two stages – firstly to seek a long list of public nominations of characters who had come to personify essential qualities of the cinema itself; and then a vote for the top twenty. More than 2,000 people aged 15 and over contributed nominations, while more than 7,000 participated in »

Clark Gregg is in New York this week for the Tribeca Film Festival with "Trust Me" -- a dark comedy he wrote, directed and stars in -- but he took time out of his busy schedule to talk with HuffPost Live host Ricky Camilleri about "The Lift."
Some background: Gregg, who played Agent Coulson in "Marvel's The Avengers" last year, is married to "Dirty Dancing" star Jennifer Grey. That union raises the obvious roundabout question: In their spare time, does the couple enjoy reenacting the iconic "Dirty Dancing" moment when Grey was lifted into the air by Patrick Swayze?
"Yeah, that's all we do actually. Each morning we wake up and I do the lift. And then I put Baby in the corner," Gregg said with a roll of his eye. "Then she stabs me with Loki's spear and we live out our film moments." Gregg's Coulson died at the »

London, Apr 12: 'Dirty Dancing' has beaten 'Singin' In The Rain' in a poll - held to find the most iconic movie dance moment of all time.
The poll by shopping channel QVC found that Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey's sequence to 'The Time Of My Life,' from the 1987 sleeper hit, earned more than one in four votes in the poll of 1,000 people, pipping Gene Kelly's 1952 wet weather routine to the title, the Daily Express reported.

It's been awhile since we've heard any news on the Point Break remake being developed by Alcon Entertainment, but the production company has hired Invincible cinematographer Ericson Core to direct the film.
The new version is set in the world of international extreme sports, and like the original involves an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal ring. I'm sure they're going to try to make this movie as extreme and over the top as possible. It'll either be ridiculously fun like the original or flat out stupid like most remakes end up being.
The original 1991 film is a classic, and a movie I can't help but watch whenever I come across it. It was directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. It will be interesting to see how this remake turns out, but I'm not getting my hopes up. This is one of those films that »

If you just so happen to be one of those nostalgic-for-the-'90s nerds, first of all heyheyheeeeeey, and second we've got some potentially distressing movie news surfing your way today.
Might as well go ahead and accept it that the "Point Break" remake is happening, dudes and dudettes, because a director has now been selected for the unnecessary and unwanted flick.
Per Deadline, Ericson Core of "Invincible" (and various turns as a cinematographer) note, is taking the reins of this project, hoping to reinvigorate that "handsome undercover cop unwittingly buddies up with the somehow ethical perp who's been right under his nose the whole time" scenario. As a feather in the guy's hat, one of his camera-working credits was on the near-equally plot derivative "The Fast and the Furious."
This reboot has been knocking around in limbo since Warner Bros. and Alcon teamed up for it in fall, 2011, which gave »

The “Point Break” remake is officially happening: studio Alcon announced it's found its director for the project, Ericson Core. The reboot of the 1991 cult classic -- starring Keanu Reeves as an FBI agent who goes undercover with a group of bank robbing surfers led by Patrick Swayze -- was announced in late 2011, but hadn't made many waves since then. Now, Core is on board, as is screenwriter Kurt Wimmer. Core is best known for his work as a cinematographer on films like “The Fast and the Furious” and “Daredevil,” and made his directorial debut in 2006 with the Mark Wahlberg vehicle “Invincible.” Wimmer has plenty of experience with the action genre, too, having co-written last year's “Total Recall” remake, in addition to penning “Salt” and “Law Abiding Citizen.” Those chops should come in handy on “Point Break,” though both men have some big shoes to fill. The original was directed by the then-up-and-comer Kathryn Bigelow, »

The new version of the film is set in the world of international extreme sports, and like the original involves an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal ring. The filmmakers are keeping other plot points under wraps.
Known for his cinematography work on the box office success “The Fast and the Furious” for Universal Pictures and “Daredevil” for 20th Century Fox, Core made his directorial debut with Disney’s “Invincible” starring Mark Wahlberg. »

Back in September of 2011, we heard that Alcon Entertainment was looking at a remake of Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 action thriller Point Break, a sort of modern classic in the genre starring Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves. While we thought the idea might have fallen to the wayside, a press release from Alcon has announced that Ericson Core, the director of photography from The Fast and the Furious (the first film from 2001) and Daredevil and director of the sports drama Invincible, has been hired to direct the film that has become a genre classic. We know the story from the original, but how will this remake be different? As of now, we don't really have any details. The press release says, "The new version of the film is set in the world of international extreme sports, and like the original involves an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal ring." No other plot points have been revealed. »
