This week: Steven Soderbergh's supposedly final film "Side Effects" is a psychological thriller starring Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Catherine Zeta-Jones. We tell you why it's a final work worth checking out.
Also new this week is the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to leading-man status in "The Last Stand," the YA supernatural romance "Beautiful Creatures," Al Pacino and Christopher Walken in "Stand Up Guys" and a 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray of "National Lampoon's Vacation." Get More »
People are always complaining about how much Americans suck at doing accents, whether it's Kevin Costner as "Robin Hood" or Keanu Reeves seemingly coming off a heroin addiction in "Bram Stoker's Dracula." And we do suck sometimes, yes.
However, we want to at least even the playing field a little by pointing out some bafflingly bad American accents perpetrated by thesps from overseas. Europe and Australia may have the best acting academies and such, but not every graduate is as versatile as they should be, starting with a certain Gerard Butler from this past weekend's "Olympus Has Fallen."

"Get to da chopp-ah!"
"It's not a tum-ah!"
"I'll be bah-ck."
Is there an actor's voice any more distinguishable than Arnold Schwarzenegger? The iron-pumping, butt-grabbing (allegedly!) "Terminator" has essentially eclipsed all other famous Austrians (sorry, Heinz Weixelbraun, but it's true!) with his unabashed devotion or uncanny disinclination to shake his heavy native accent. Although "I'll be back" might be his most iconic sound bite, the guy has given us a slew of phrases to impersonate. And to take it one step further, the only thing funnier than someone trying to do an Arnold impression is when that someone is a lady. The roided-up renditions juxtapose to hilarious result when spoekn by women.
YouTube channel Fat Awesome has asked everyday ladies to impersonate Ah-nold, and the results are mixed, to say the least. But, nevertheless, it sure is fun to watch. Just don't let Schwarzenegger anywhere near them (he's got a certain reputation for being, er, "grabby").
Ahh, the never-ending pursuit of the almighty
dollar yen, euro and ruble. It will forever dominate us all — especially those in Japan, Europe and Russia, respectively.
That's where the following American movie stars traveled to film a commercial or two. Fortunately for us, what happens overseas does not stay overseas. Thanks, YouTube! We haven't quite forgiven you for Bieber, but this is a good first step. Get More »
It feels like ages ago that Arnold Schwarzenegger made his most famous promise (no, not the one to Maria Shriver) when he declared, "I'll be back." Well, it turns out he might just be a man of his word after all—at least when it comes to his career. The actor-turned-politician-turned-actor is, indeed, coming back… to his most famous role, that is.
During a press conference in London for "The Last Stand," Schwarzenegger revealed that he will appear in the next "Terminator" film, which is currently being developed by producer David Ellison, Bleeding Cool reports. Get More »
At age 65, Arnold Schwarzenegger is America's elder badass laureate, a seasoned practitioner of kicking butt, taking names, etc.
Now that his comeback vehicle, "The Last Stand," has officially tanked at the U.S. box office, we imagine Herr Governator is pretty POed this morning, and for a realistic simulation of the shouting levels at the Schwarzenegger compound FilmDrunk has stitched together a supercut of "Every Arnold Scream From Every Arnold Movie."

[From Film.com] Everyone's favorite Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has has to wrap his mouth around a lot of big words in his many film roles. And with that rockin' Austrian accent, that mouth-wrapping happens in a really unique way. Check out this mashup, including choice lines from "Kindergarten Cop," "The Terminator" and "Junior," among others, and just try and figure out what this guy is saying.
It's cool being a hardcore fan of something — "Star Wars," Robert Downey Jr., Gerard Butler romcoms (okay, just kidding, nobody is a fan of those) — but fandom can have its downsides. Many fans, for instance, sometimes have a hard time objectively seeing the positives and negatives of the thing they love so much.
Case in point: A Massachusetts high school principal has just been suspended for two days after introducing himself to his new student body by means of a really bizarre "Terminator" parody. Get More »
We guess it's swell and all that Johnny Knoxville is starring in "The Last Stand" (especially since he seems to be playing the same character in a movie that also has the same plot as "Walking Tall"), but we can't help but wonder what it would be like if someone else had been chosen to "Stand" alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger for his big comeback movie. (And doesn't J-Knox look a little Photoshopped there, anyway?)
Anyhow, imagine the verbal quips Arnold could've shared with the ever-quotable Raymond Babbitt (aka "Rain Man") or the feats of derring-do he could've accomplished with Johnny Five as his back-up. And Danny DeVito? Please, it would be the magic of "Twins" all over again (rather than the dark sorcery of "Junior," of course).
Dream with us below, before harsh reality takes its toll when "The Last Stand" opens on Jan. 18.
