Batman has dominated movie screens since at least 1989. An there have been some major players vying for the role ever since. Ben Affleck put it best: "Batman is the Greatest Part in the World." In the summer of 2017, the actor and Oscar winning screenwriter and director shrugged off rumors he was set to exit the Dceu, as work continued on Zack Snyder's Justice League. But what if someone else was coming in to take over the role. Who would it be?
Battfleck turned out to be the best received part of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which reintroduced the Caped Crusader to movie going audiences, following the critical and box-office success of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. There have been numerous big screen versions of Gotham City's vigilante since he made his debut in Detective Comics and even more false starts and abandoned projects. Today, we're looking »
Rube Goldberg was an engineer-turned cartoonist who is most famous for the animated contraptions he drew. Goldberg used engineering principles to create fun diagrams of machines which performed simple tasks in complicated ways. Most often his machines were designed to perform everyday household tasks in zany, creative ways. He used a lot of unconventional techniques and materials to create these contraptions.
Due to the fun nature of Goldberg’s animated and real-world creations, it is no surprise that he has had an impact on film. Since film is a visual medium in motion, it is actually the perfect way for Goldberg’s unique machines to come alive. This is a look at some of the best Rube goldberg-inspired machines, »

You could argue that Tom Hanks had Oscar acting ability as Uncle Ned on Family Ties but then you’d be lying to yourself. You could say there were hints of his greatness even before that in Bosom Buddies but you’d be lying to yourself then too. How about Bachelor Party? Nope. The Money Pit? Splash? These were all good movies and I think we’d all agree that Hanks was great in all of them but at what point did he transform from comedy into the guy you see today? Many say that Hanks really showed how good an actor he

“They had started a renovation that was supposed to take four months,” Berkus, 45, tells People. “A year later they were living out of their garage with two boys under 10, cooking on a hotplate that was sitting on top of their washer and dryer.” The desperate clients featured on the premiere of the decorating couple’s new show Nate & Jeremiah By Design, more than fit the series’ modus operandi: saving »

Tom Hanks has been dominating Hollywood for nearly 30 years now. What began as a television career characterized by dressing as a woman in Bosom Buddies, to taking that comedic talent to the big screen in films like Bachelor Party, The Money Pit, and even Splash, became one of the biggest acting success stories in all of Hollywood. I personally think it was the movie “Big” that truly got him on the path to greatness. While that film in and of itself was a “comedy,” you could see the dramatic Hanks coming out. Then, not too many years later he

35 years ago, the actress sang the body electric.
The handful of actresses I associate with motherhood include ’80s movie and TV staples Dee Wallace, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, Joanna Kerns, Judith Light, and Meredith Baxter. They were the ones that comforted me when I was a kid. But when it comes to images of grandmothers, only one woman comes to mind: Maureen Stapleton.
On January 17, 1982, Stapleton was only 55 years old. She had three Academy Award nominations under her belt and was about to receive her fourth. She would win that Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the end of March for her performance as Emma Goldman in Reds. But on this particular night, she was on television in the title role of The Electric Grandmother.
