This Sunday, moms across the world'll be celebrating their own momness (or is it momitude?) in varying degrees and fashions. Some will receive flowers; others will demand that those whiny, slothy teenage miscreants do their own ruddy laundry for crying out loud ... or something like that. Get More »
At one point in "Groundhog Day," Phil Connors (Bill Murray) claims to his co-worker Rita (Andie MacDowell) that he is a god. (Not the god, he doesn't think.) To prove it, he recalls that he's been "stabbed, shot, frozen, poisoned, hung, electrocuted, and burned."
John McClane laughs at you, Phil Connors. John McClane is the god.
Over the course of the first four films in the "Die Hard" franchise, John McClane (Bruce Willis) almost died 68 total times. And we're not talking "almost died" in normal terms, like "someone is pointing a gun at me" almost died, we're talking "He just got chucked off of that moving 747 - how is he still alive?" almost died. John McClane can not be killed.

Yippee kay-yay! Yay! Yaaaaay! Japanese people are seriously the best. Ever.
Just take a good look at what went down in the Land of the Rising Sun during promotions for "A Good Day to Die Hard" (which there translates into "Die Hard The Last Day," apparently) this week.
No, Valentine's Day has not corroded your eyeballs into seeing everything turned sickly sweet. That is an actual chocolate mold of John McClane, 'cause why the hell not?
While Bruce Willis himself was not on hand for the film debuting festivities, his edible, life-sized cocoa doppelganger was there with a massive milky gun at the ready. Frankly, Willis has never looked so yummy. Get More »
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 »
In the 19 years since "Pulp Fiction" hit theaters, the film that made Quentin Tarantino a superstar has become a bona fide cinematic classic. Hell, it was a classic from the moment it first screened at the Cannes Film Festival. But as a new oral history of the film in Vanity Fair shows, "Pulp Fiction" was almost a very different film.
Forget Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and John Travolta. How about "Pulp Fiction" starring Paul Calderon, Matt Dillon and Daniel Day-Lewis? Get More »
You're never too old to play spy games.
Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren return as over-the-hill secret agents prone to causing international incidents in "RED 2," the sequel to the 2010 action comedy that you probably don't remember too much of. Get More »

Across the many long, winding roads that make up the information superhighway (a term that '90s-era pioneers often used to describe "the Internet"), one of the most respected of skills is the ability to make a decent mashup.
Really, where would we be if we weren't able to distract ourselves from the tedium of our workdays with little three-minute videos that incorporate footage from different sources to create one cohesive piece of satirical entertainment? No damn where, that's where. Get More »
Despite hurricanes, earthquakes and every movie Taylor Kitsch made, 2012 has been a bounty of riches.
And, since it's Thanksgiving and all, we feel it's high time we took a moment to give thanks for those things (and people!) that have made this year so epically special.
So, without further ado...
1. 'Magic Mike,' for bringing sexy back.
2. Ben Affleck, for growing up to be a damn fine director. Who'd a guessed it?
3. Robert Pattinson, for teaching us what it looks like to truly feel.
4. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, for being super-cute and super-cool at the same time.
5. Javier Bardem, for being one of the Best. Bond. Villains. Ever.
6. The riff-off! (From 'Pitch Perfect')
7. The Hulk, for smashing.
8. Stephen Chbosky, for adapting and directing his own book, and thus making a near-perfect film.
9. Bruce Willis, for always looking so darn confused.
10. Bill Murray, for his various offscreen cameos around the world.
11. 'Twilight,' for ending.
12. 'John Carter,' for being such a great punchline.
13. Ryan Gosling, for living.
