American acting and filmmaking legend Harold Ramis passed away this morning.
The 69-year-old Ramis reportedly died from complications of a rare disease - autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis (blood vessel swelling).
Ramis' health struggles began in May 2010 with an infection that led to complications related to the disease. He had to relearn to walk, but suffered a relapse in late 2011. He was surrounded by family when he died.
While he also had memorable roles in "As Good as It Gets," "Airheads," "Knocked Up," "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story," he was even more famous for his filmmaking. In his time Ramis wrote and directed such comedy classics as "Caddyshack," "National Lampoon's Vacation," "Groundhog Day" and "Analyze This".
Our sincerest condolences go out to his family, »

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz “made a sex tape,” and our first preview of the finished product is now online. The two star in director Jake Kasdan’s (Bad Teacher) upcoming comedy Sex Tape, which revolves around a couple who, after discovering that their three-hour intimate video has been stolen, set out to recover the tape and ensure that their reputations aren't ruined. This first image from the pic gives us a tease of what that sex tape may entail, as Diaz is seen in bed sporting a pair of roller skates (one assumes she's just really into Boogie Nights). Segel co-wrote the screenplay with Kasdan and Kate Angelo, and as a big fan of Kasdan’s Walk Hard—not to mention the impressive comedic abilities of Segel and Diaz—I’m very much looking forward to seeing what they’ve cooked up for this new film. Expect a debut trailer soon. »

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2007, and another 25 overlooked gems...
For some reason, the number three was a common factor in several blockbuster movies of 2007. The third film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series (At World's End) dominated the box office, Spider-Man 3 marked Sam Raimi's last entry as director in the series, while Mike Myers went for a hat trick of hits with Shrek The Third.
I Am Legend was the third and most financially successful attempt to bring Richard Matheson's classic novel to the big screen, Rush Hour 3 marked Jackie Chan's last action pairing with Chris Tucker, while Zack Snyder's musky sword-swinger 300 was notable for having the number three in the title.
Iffy attempts at numerology aside, 2007 was also a superb for year for movies in general - particularly underappreciated ones, »
