Ahh, the 1980s. Big hair, New Wave, lots of neon, and these 16 celebrity couples you probably forgot all about, as rounded up by MSN . A sampling: Oprah Winfrey and Roger Ebert went out twice in the 1980s, and it was Ebert who encouraged Winfrey to syndicate her talk show. Back in 1987, Matthew Broderick dated Helen Hunt after meeting as co-stars in Project X . They stayed friends, and even co-starred in another film in 2007. Christina Applegate dated Brad Pitt in 1988, even going to the MTV Movie Awards together ... but she left him there and went home with »

Ok, so the found footage style being used within the horror genre isn’t exactly a rarity. In fact, just today a clip was released for upcoming found footage horror Afflicted. But how many found footage horror comedies are there knocking around?
Independent film Ghost Team One looks set to fill this void. Described as Project X meets Paranormal Activity, the film is about two friends (J.R. Villarreal and Carlos Santos) who, when they find out their house might be haunted, hire sexy ghost hunter Fernanda (Fernanda Romero) to investigate and set up cameras around the place. With aroused ghosts and a horny demon intent on doing more to our heroes than haunting them, the film’s blend of comedy with the standard Paranormal Activity storyline could make Ghost Team One a hit, providing it gets enough publicity.

It's a horror story that any movie fan can relate to, Twi-Hard or not: You're watching TV and you see the name of your favorite movie listed on your channel guide, only to flip over and discover that the "Twilight" they're showing doesn't have Edward and Jacob battling for the love of Bella — but instead Gene Hackman and Paul Newman fighting over Susan Sarandon.
You were just punked by Same Name Syndrome. (Hey, at least it also includes a topless Reese Witherspoon.)
It happens often. In fact, just this week, "The Butler" hits theaters ... except it's officially titled "Lee Daniels' The Butler," 'cause the rights to the title "The Butler" belong to a 1916 silent short film that no one's ever seen (yes, really). Read all about that silly saga here.
Anyway, here's our guide on How to Differentiate Movies With the Same Title (That Are Not Remakes).

The Hangover might just be the most influential movie of the modern age. It's spawned two sequels, made box-office stars out of almost everyone in it and – crucially – got other films lining up to compare themselves to it. Google "The Hangover meets" if you don't believe me: Hot Tub Time Machine was "The Hangover meets Back to the Future", Project X was "The Hangover meets Cloverfield", Aftershock is "The Hangover meets The Impossible" and 21 and Over is "The Hangover meets Superbad". It's endless.

...As 2013 approaches, Warner Bros. has made one final Academy Awards push for The Dark Knight Rises, releasing a 'For Your Consideration' iBook which collects together all of the film's campaign posters, as well as a behind-the-scenes trailer and selection of TV spots. The studio is lobbying hard in a number of the top categories, including Best Picture, Best Director (Christopher Nolan), Best Actor (Christian Bale), Best Actress (Anne Hathaway), Best Supporting Actor (Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman), Best Supporting Actress (Marion Cotillard), Best Adapted Screenplay (Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan) - and will be hoping to avoid a repeat of this »
