Each year, the Library of Congress selects 25 films to be named to the National Film Registry, a proclamation of commitment to preserving the chosen pictures for all time. They can be big studio pictures or experimental short films, goofball comedies or poetic meditations on life. The National Film Registery "showcases the extraordinary diversity of America’s film heritage and the disparate strands making it so vibrant" and by preserving the films, the Library of Congress hopes to "a crucial element of American creativity, culture and history.” This year’s selections span the period 1913 to 2004 and include a number of films you’re familiar with. Unless you’ve never heard of "Saving Private Ryan," "The Big Lebowski," “Rosemary’s Baby” or "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." Highlights from the list include the aforementioned film, Arthur Penn’s Western "Little Big Man," John Lasseter’s 1986 animated film, “Luxo Jr.," 1953’s “House of Wax, »

“The Big Lebowski,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Rosemary’s Baby,” “Saving Private Ryan” and “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” are among the 25 films saluted by the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in the organization’s annual selection of notable works.

2001's Jose and the Pussycats, which is based on characters from Archie Comics, opened with $4.5M and ended its worldwide run with a measly $14.8M. Just because it didn't do well at the box office doesn't mean it's bad. Sometimes it takes time for a film to find its audience. Is that the case with Jose and the Pussycats? One of the stars from the film, Rosario Dawson ("Sin City: A Dame To Kill For"), she thinks so: That movie is so amazing, and it really didn’t hit its audience then. People didn’t really get it. But if you watch it now, it’s so on the money — from media manipulation to endorsements and boy bands. We shot it in Vancouver, and [co-stars] Tara Reid and Rachael Leigh Cook were the biggest stars on the planet at the moment. Tara was getting married to Carson Daly, and it was »
Rosario Dawson has had a varied career, starting as a complete amateur in Larry Clark.s Kids to eventually working with such heavyweights as Spike Lee (He Got Game, 25th Hour), Oliver Stone (Alexander) and Quentin Tarantino (Death Proof). But there.s one gem on her resume that the Top Five actress doesn.t understand why people continue to sleep on, and the answer might surprise you. Dawson was speaking with THR about her top roles, and mentioned that the 2001 comedy Josie and then Pussycats is far better than people give it credit for. She told the trade mag: That movie is so amazing, and it really didn.t hit its audience then. People didn.t really get it. But if you watch it now, it.s so on the money . from media manipulation to endorsements and boy bands. We shot it in Vancouver, and [co-stars] Tara Reid and Rachael »
Do you know what makes a movie great? No, it’s not who’s in it, who directed it or how many awards it’s won. It’s about how fondly you remember it; how much fun you had or how it touched you personally. Still, there are certain movies that you’ll find are frequently sited by many as “guilty pleasures,” despite the fact that there’s really nothing to be ashamed of.
In this festive period of indulgence, it’s only right to get together with like-minded family and friends to watch some really terrible/good movies. You know, the ones that you inexplicably love despite a lack of many – or indeed, any – redeeming features.

Tara Reid is responding to the critics who are calling her too thin. The actress, 39, received negative comments after posting a photo of herself in a revealing bikini on Instagram over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Tara Reid knows how to flaunt her bikini bod when the paps come out to play. The 39-year-old star was recently spotted on the beach in Hawaii where she was snapped showing off her slim figure while splashing around in the ocean.

The Big Lebowski star has made headlines for her bikini bod on numerous occasions. In August, she shared an Instagram snap in which she's wearing her tiniest two piece yet while seductively captioning the shot, "Do you like my beads." And in »

Scrubs was one of NBC’s critically acclaimed, but poorly rated sitcoms of the 2000’s. It was also close to being cancelled every season, but somehow the show would continue to survive. NBC finnally pulled the plug on the series after the conclusion of its seventh season after being ranked the 115 most watched show of the entire 2007-2008 television season. ABC would come to the rescue and pick the comedy up for an eighth season. Scrubs would return for season nine but would only feature J.D. (Zach Braff), Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley), and Turk (Don Faison) teaching at a medical school. During those nine seasons, Dr. John Dorian had many girlfriends. We decided to rank the top 10 for your reading pleasure. 10. Danni Sullivan (Tara Reid) Trust me. I am not a Tara Reid fan by any means. However, she barely makes the list playing Danni Sullivan, Jordan’s younger sister. »

Fin Shepard (Ziering) and his ex-wife April (Reid) are flying to New York City when their plane enters the most unnatural of storms and is battered by airborne sharks. As blood is shed and passengers are maimed in the skies, New York awakens and people spill onto the streets, unaware of the peril descending rapidly towards them… a sharknado is about to hit the big apple! Armed with weapons and explosives, Fin realises he must risk all to save his sister’s family from the greatest of danger as floods and storms crash into the city.
The first Sharknado was something of an unexpected phenomenon. Your typical monster-movie produced by The Asylum, it captured the imagination of more than just those of who usually tune-in »

After wreaking wonderfully outlandish havoc across Los Angeles and New York, Syfy has confirmed that Sharknado 3 is on its way to the East Coast, with the shark-infested storm due to hit the likes of Orlando and Washington, D.C. in 2015. Climate change is a bitch, huh?
The news comes to us from the franchise’s official Twitter account, which confirmed it yesterday.

In fact, Sharknado 3 is set to be as sprawling as ever, gobbling up a hoard of locations where the first two films took place primarily within one city. And while we don’t know much about, err, story, you can readily expect some major monuments to be face the brunt of the titular super-storm come next year — an airborne shark attack on the White House, anyone?

The first "Sharknado" movie took place in Los Angeles. The sequel, called "Sharknado: The Second One," took place in New York City. It was watched by 3.9 million viewers, a record for an original Syfy movie. "Sharknado 3" was already announced and will bring back Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. But fans have been wondering where the third installment will take place. Now, thanks to the official "Sharknado" Twitter account, we have the answer. "It's official! From DC to Orlando. #Sharknado3 Takes on the Feast Coast," said the account. While exact locations have yet to be revealed, it's likely that we'll see the White House and possibly some of the theme parks, like Walt Disney World. Either way, it looks like we're getting a road trip movie. »
