Monica’s a goner! Get your coat, love. Oh, you already have. Put it on then.
Anton’s “extra bit of passion” has saved him. Olly got so confused he nearly sent Monica home. You had one job. One job.
Grimmy’s saving Anton. Rita isn’t. Cheryl isn’t either, so it’s down to Cowell. Send it to deadlock, maaaaate.
Anton’s no Hucknall, but he’s better than Monica. »

When Tom Cruise finds a director he likes, he sticks to them like glue. The actor has collaborated with some of the finest filmmakers in his career: Stanley Kubrick (Eyes Wide Shut), Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia), Steven Spielberg (Minority Report), Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire), and Michael Mann (Collateral), to name a few. One of his most rewarding collaborations from the past few years […]

With apologies to “Jerry Maguire,” in the case of “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” Starz probably had the intended audience at hello. The simple kick of seeing Bruce Campbell back in zombie-slayer mode, hip-deep in buckets of gore, is tasty enough that the particular merits of this revival are almost beside the point. Wisely packaged in half-hour intervals after a slightly longer premiere, the series exhibits a kind of numbing repetition (forget binge viewing) but should bring in viewers who aren’t watching “Outlander.” In terms of Starz vs. Waffling Subscribers, that sounds like a victory.
Yes, it really has been 34 years since director Sam Raimi, producer Robert Tapert and Campbell (an exec producer too) teamed up on the original movie, which spawned sequels and helped guide everyone toward bigger and better things. So there’s an initial thrill in Campbell re-inhabiting the character of Ash, now billed as the world’s oldest one-handed box boy, »

· Idris Elba (Netflix’s “Beasts of No Nation,” BBC’s “Luther”) provides the voice of Chief Bogo, head of the Zootropolis Police Department. A tough cape buffalo with 2,000 lbs of attitude, Bogo is reluctant to add Judy Hopps, Zootropolis’ first bunny cop, to his squad of hardened rhinos, elephants and hippos.
· J.K. Simmons (“Juno,” Oscar® winner for “Whiplash”) lends his voice to Mayor Leodore Lionheart, the noble leader of Zootropolis, who coined the city’s mantra that Judy Hopps lives by: “In Zootropolis, anyone can be anything.”

Remember Jonathan Lipnicki? You know, that adorable little kid with the quirky glasses who stole our hearts opposite Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire. Well, the former child star turns a whopping 25 today and, while we've honestly never felt older, this is also a perfectly reasonable time for us to note just how darn cute he still is! Going on two decades since the towheaded charmer taught us a thing or two about human heads and bunny rabbits when he was only 5 years old, Lipnicki continues to act. After starring in family friendly favorites Stuart Little and Like Mike in the early 2000s, the birthday boy made his return to the silver screen in 2012 with For the Love of Money, »

In the same way that you can’t separate some actors or actresses from a great role, you can’t separate others from a poor one. And while it might seem harsh to disregard a performer for one role out of many, sometimes they’re so hate-worthy that you just can’t help it.
Most of the actors and actresses on this list, with a few exceptions, have good roles on their CV, both before and after the ones in question. However, the ones in question are so bad that it makes the better ones hard to remember. This isn’t Robert De Niro getting away with Rocky and Bullwinkle because he was Travis Bickle, this is, for the most part, Hayden Christensen in the Star Wars prequels (to use an example not on this list but which easily could’ve been).
Here’s 10 performers and their most hate-able roles, »

They had Us at hello! Jon Cryer is just as fascinated by Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' romance as the rest of the world. Speaking about his former Two and a Half Men costar with Us Weekly at the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on Sunday, Sept. 20, the actor compared Kutcher and Kunis to one of the great rom-com couples of the modern era: Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger in Jerry Maguire.

"Almost Famous" may not have been a hit when it first opened on September 15, 2000, but over the years, it's come to pluck the heartstrings and echo in the eardrums of millions of fans. It made a star of Kate Hudson, gave an early career boost to Zooey Deschanel, and won writer/director Cameron Crowe (of "Say Anything" and "Jerry Maguire" fame) his only Oscar to date.
In honor of "Almost Famous'" fifteenth anniversary, crank up Stillwater's "Fever Dog" and check out these facts you may not know about Crowe's semi-autobiographical film.

There was a time, surely, when Singles must have felt pretty fresh. It was keyed into a time and place that has all but been enshrined as one the late twentieth century's great creative meccas (early 90s Seattle), and its young creative talent (most notably Cameron Crowe, who was between Say Anything and Jerry Maguire) was working in a form that had not yet ripened into insufferable cliché. Just how well that will translate to the present will vary from viewer to viewer, but on the whole, Singles retains its virtues, if more so as a time capsule than as a romantic comedy.

With its stockpile of studio blockbusters, indies and documentaries, Toronto is the Wal-Mart of film festivals. As usual, this year’s slate promises to debut its share of box office hits as well as Oscar contenders and small, breakout films. Here are the 13 most anticipated movies at the festival, which kicks off Thursday.
Directed by Ridley Scott, “The Martian” is the biggest movie to world premiere at Toronto. The sci-fi epic follows a Nasa astronaut (played by Matt Damon) who finds himself stranded on Mars. The trailer for this 20th Century Fox release, based on Andy Weir’s 2011 novel, suggests it could be this year’s “Gravity.” And the ensemble, which includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sebastian Stan, is formidable. –Ramin Setoodeh
