Happy 53rd birthday to Stanley Tucci, who started out his career playing Italian-American tough guys but is probably best-known for his roles in nuttier Meryl Streep fare like The Devil Wears Prada and Julie and Julia, not to mention his Oscar-nominated turn in The Lovely Bones. He was also gay and jilted in Burlesque, which I hope you all remember.
And more importantly, I hope you remember he is so damn hot.
Here are my favorite five examples of his legendary hotness.
#1: This Levi’s ad where he is scorching.
2. Right here. Oh yes, right here. (I think it’s from his short-lived CBS series 3 lbs.)
3. This awesomely gaudy getup from Shall We Dance
4. This magazine cover, oh yes yes yes.
5. And oh yes, this still from Undercover Blues.
Happy 53 to Miranda Priestley’s unflappable second banana! What’s your choice for Tucci’s hottest act?

Tony Scott‘s True Romance is probably one of my top ten all-time favorite movies, which is kind of weird since Badlands is one of my top five all-time favorite films. Or maybe it’s appropriate that this is the case. I’m sure that one of the reasons I fell in love with this movie is because of how directly it’s inspired by and references the earlier Terrence Malick film. Notice I make the distinction between movies and films. Scott made movies, Malick makes films. Scott also made a movie I like that directly references another of my all-time favorite films (Enemy of the State –> The Conversation). I was sad when Scott died particularly because I was hoping he’d eventually cover all my top shelf titles (just imagine what he could have done with Duck Soup!). Then again, maybe he’d have just redone himself, the way he did with Domino, which »

From the lobby scene in The Matrix to Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader squaring off in The Empire Strikes Back, the most effective movie fight scenes generally rely on objects designed for inflicting harm.
Every once in a while though, a gun runs out of bullets, a knife gets kicked out of reach, or a screenwriter becomes bored. The result is an impractical, yet effective use of a common object as a weapon.
"Did he really just beat that man to death with a dildo?" He sure did -- and that's not even the weirdest improvised weapon in our supercut above. Enjoy!
