Among circumstances that are devastating for you and awesome for everyone else, having a hot mom ranks near the top.
If it's you with the hot mom, there's nothing positive about it. You are the kid with the hot mom. Your friends could be asexual boy scouts and they'll still talk about how hot your mom is with relative frequency.
If it's your friend with the hot mom? A+! Congratulations! What a life bonus!
The children of the following ten movie characters have had to deal with a lot. Their (fictional) moms are incredibly sexy. Let's discuss.
The thing that's unique about Coolidge and why she receives the honor of batting leadoff on this list is that she's not exactly "classically" Milf-hot in the sense of "Overall hot woman who also happens to have children" Milf-hot (yes, there are categories of Milf-hotness as of right now). Instead, »

For director David Cronenberg, marrying up stunning and grotesque visuals with Hollywood’s choicest talent is not unusual. The cast roster for his latest directorial effort, Maps To The Stars is already mightily impressive. Stars are chomping at the monstrous bit to have the chance to work with the Canadian filmmaker.
Mia Wasikowska, no stranger to the weird, Olivia Williams and Evan Bird have now joined the project. Wasikowska’s recent turn in Stoker cements her as an actress with a willingness to venture into the sinister side of human nature. Williams is best known for her work in The Sixth Sense, Rushmore, a brilliant turn in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, and the recent Anna Karenina adaptation. For youngster Bird, this will be his first foray into film after roles in TV’s The Killing and Falling Skies.
Reports on their roles indicate that the story is sounding more and »

I'm So Excited (15)
Almodóvar responds to his country's economic woes with camp hysteria and Carry On humour. In many ways this airborne disaster farce – anarchic, absurdist, garishly stylish and gleefully debauched – is a return to the Spanish auteur's subversive roots. But there's a serious subtext to the silliness, and the metaphors are brought back down to earth for a satisfying landing.
The Eye Of The Storm (15)
The imminent death of Rampling's matriarch throws an aristocratic family's dysfunction into relief in this Aussie drama, whose overstuffed story is redeemed by three watchable leads.

Peter Ho-Sun Chan has directed films on both sides of the Pacific, and this brisk and twisty actioner, though set in 1917 China, bears marked western influences. It begins in CSI territory, with forensically minded acupuncturist Takeshi Kaneshiro dispatched to investigate after lowly paper-maker Donnie Yen kills a notorious criminal with an innocuous blow to the head. The character study that follows – after Kaneshiro's pinpointed how that tooth got in the pickling jar, and the significance of the vagus nerve – has clear DNA traces of Cronenberg's A History of Violence. Chan keeps the drama and fight scenes appreciably precise, while superior performers lend the hard science heart: Lust, Caution's Tang Wei makes a welcome screen return, wringing a lot from worried glances as the accused's wife, while Yen again proves one of the few »

The casting of the great Ben Kingsley as the chief villain in Iron Man 3 is the kind of thing that raised eyebrows all over the internet -- is this our next great comic book movie villain? Although the jury is still out on Kingsley (the film doesn't even open in North America until May 3), it's time to prepare for Kingsley's performance by taking a look back at the best comic book movie villains of all time. After all, he's got some fine company to keep in this category. A special note: when it came to making this list, the decision was to skew toward more "traditional" comic book villains. After all, if we were to include every movie based on a comic in this discussion, we'd have to make room for William Hurt in A History of Violence and Jude Law in...

Hey everyone. I was relaxing last night, enjoying Scream Factory’s great release of Ted Nicolaou’s 1986 monster film Terrorvison, when I thought that it would be fun to go over my five favorite films that Charles Band’s Empire International Pictures had released during their very impressive run. Sure, they went on to form Full Moon after Empire’s end, but I’ve always been more inclined to revisit the Empire days, as I felt like those films were more ambitious and were approached better. So, here they are: My five favorite Empire movies. Read on!
*Not in any particular order*
Based on an H.P. Lovecraft story, Stuart Gordon’s Re-animator isn’t just one of the best films made by Empire, it’s one the best movies made by anyone. It’s a perfect blend of humor, gore and everything that Gordon’s films are known for, »

"Dragon" was a complete and total surprise from last year. Not only was it a worthy remake of David Cronenberg's "A History of Violence," but it was also one of the smartest martial arts films to come along in quite some time. Since the film is finally set to be released on DVD and Blu-ray, the rare instance of revisiting the film, seeing if it holds up on repeat viewings, and writing about it actually presented itself for once. I originally watched "Dragon" over the internet on a stream directly from the studio, so I did not have the benefit of watching the film in HD until now. As usual, HD is the way this film is meant to be seen. The bloodstream segments along with every choreographed fight scene really benefits from high-definition. The scenery isn't quite as rich as you've come to expect from other foreign films, »
Moviefone's Pick of the Week "Django Unchained" What's It About? Quentin Tarantino's Western about a German bounty hunter freeing a southern slave (and all that comes with it), is at once a commentary on how barbaric the idea of slavery is/was and also a dark comedy about the horrors of the slave trade. See It Because: Some moments you'll be laughing out loud and at others you'll be morose and silent. In the end, you'll be cheering aloud for protagonist Jamie Foxx (Django), who's gunslinging badassery is one of the most memorable performances of the year. Moviefone's Blu-ray Pick of the Week "Repo Man" Criterion Collection What's It About? Uh well.... Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton star in this 1984 punk classic as a pair of repossession agents that race against rival thugs and government agents to locate a classic Chevy Malibu that may or may not have »

A History of Violence, 2005.
Directed by David Cronenberg.
Based upon the 1997 graphic novel of the same name by writer John Wagner and artist Vince Locke, David Cronenberg's acclaimed drama A History of Violence stars Viggo Mortensen as a mild-mannered small town diner owner who is forced to confront his criminal past after making national headlines when he kills two robbers in self defense.
Premiering in competition at Cannes, A History of Violence was well received by audiences and critics and went on to earn two Oscar nominations in 2006, with Josh Olson up for Best Adapted Screenplay and William Hurt (who would later portray General 'Thunderbolt' Ross in 2008's The Incredible Hulk »

Greg Bryk ("A History Of Violence"), Greyston Holt ("Alcatraz") and Paul Greene ("The Client List") have joined Laura Vandervoort ("Smallville") in the new 'werewolf' TV series "Bitten", now shooting in studio and on location in Toronto, Hamilton and in the Hespeler area near Cambridge, Ontario.
Based on the "Women of the Otherworld" novels by author Kelley Armstrong, the thriller stars Vandervoort as 'Elena Michaels', the world’s only female werewolf:
"...a foster child, 'Elena' (Vandervoort) had always craved a normal life and thought she finally found it with her boyfriend 'Clayton Danvers' (Holt).
"But the secret life he kept from her ended up changing her forever. With one small bite, Elena was forced to survive life with the 'Pack' as a werewolf.
"Still craving the normal life she lost, Elena finds refuge in Toronto working as a photographer and dating a new man. Hiding her werewolf existence from her ad-exec »

A loving family thrives on its traditions, and so it is that the debut feature from writer-director Brandon Cronenberg proves to be just as hide-your-eyes yucky as the early films of his father, Canadian auteur David Cronenberg (Videodrome, The Fly, A History of Violence). Antiviral imagines a world in which celebrity-obsessed average Joes pay for the privilege of being injected with colds, flus, and far nastier viruses harvested from the voluntarily donated blood of movie stars and models. Young Syd March (a fearless Caleb Landry Jones) works in a virus clinic and is secretly injecting himself with the blood he's assigned to draw from famous beauty Hannah Geist (Sarah Gadon). Syd is selling his Hannah-enriched blood on the black market, an enterprise that m »
The latest movie adaptation of a Meyer novel will likely not lead to a movie franchise Directed and adapted by Andrew Niccol, Stephenie Meyer's sci-fi book The Host debuted at no. 6 on the Us / Canada box-office chart this Easter weekend, earning an anemic $10.6 million at 3,202 North American venues, as per actuals found on the web site Box Office Mojo. Many pundits had been predicting The Host to debut in the mid-to-high teens. What that means (and considering the film's budget; see below), the romantic sci-fier featuring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, and Jake Abel is this year's most recent big box-office disappointment. (Pictured above: Abel as one of the men in Ronan's in The Host) It may seem mean-spirited to compare The Host to either Twilight or The Hunger Games; but then again, both of those movies were also adaptations of popular novels geared to young adults, and featured a »

Scanners is the last low-budget Canadian film that David Cronenberg made before he went legit with the masterpiece Videodrome and pretty good Stephen King adaptation The Dead Zone. Scanners was also way ahead of its time, it presents similar themes and characters that would become commonplace some twenty years later with things like Heroes, X-Men and Chronicle. Of course this is all done on an early 80s definition of a low-budget but still it manages to work although it is not without flaws.
We start with a hobo named Cameron Vale (Stephen Lack) who is arrested at a shopping mall after he seems to telepathically make a woman have a heart attack after she mocks him. Cameron is introduced to Dr Paul Ruth (Patrick McGoohan) who works for the ConSec corporation that is there for the purpose of researching ‘Scanners’ , telepathic beings who are capable of doing great harm to the human race. »

More choosing is on the way. Crackle's Chosen will return for a second season after an adrenaline-filled first season that saw former Heroes lead Milo Ventimiglia portray Ian, an initially-mundane husband and father whose life takes a dramatic turn when a gun and a picture of someone he must assassinate turn up on his doorstep. The first season, which played out like a pulse-pounding blend of A History of Violence and Wanted, ended on a mild cliffhanger, as a final reveal hinted that more angry people with guns will soon be chasing after Ian. It's a sure-footed formula that plays well to the plentiful action-hungry crowd. The first season will remain available on Crackle's various outlets until May. Embedding is disabled, but you can check out all six episodes here. Chosen pulled in only 48% of its streams from 'online' viewers. The series took great advantage of new media outlets, scoring »

When people think of the Oscars, they think of a prestigious awards ceremony which recognises and honours the best filmmakers and actors in the industry, that particular year.
However, with over 50 Academy Award nominations between the participants in my list and not a single win amongst them, clearly not every actor and director is acknowledged and valued by the Academy in the way they should be. I have compiled a list of 20 brilliant A-List actors and directors who have not yet and may never will, carry home the esteemed golden Oscar statuette that their lionized careers have warranted.
Why haven’t they won? I have no idea. Many of these actors and directors have won a multitude of Golden Globe awards and BAFTAs alike, however for some reason the most famous of all figurines has evaded them.
Moreover, with many of the actors in this list, it may be that »
