Who better to review a movie about porn than a porn star? That's why we got the beautiful Allie Haze to share… Watch Now »

The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked over 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Channing Tatum, Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Salma Hayek, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100+.

Mutants: There sure are a sh*tload of them. Just check out any "X-Men" movie and you'll realize that, statistically speaking, just about every other person you know would have to secretly be a mutant in order for there to be that darn many of them. And the other half of the people on Earth? Apparently all secret agents, robots from the future or Stan Lee. Weird is the new normal. Get More »
$20 million'll change just about anybody's tune, so it's little surprise that when that kind of mega-cash got waggled in front of Liam Neeson's face to entice another
display of his particular set of skills go at being "Taken," he stepped off of his previous I'm-Not-Gonna-Do-That platform with some pretty quick feet.
Yep, per Deadline, Neeson's been wrangled back into retired CIA operative Bryan Mills' luckless shoes for "Taken 3," earning a $5 million pay raise for the third installment after "Taken 2" abducted $376 million smackers out of the worldwide box office last winter. Get More »
Also new this week is the action-horror flick "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" with Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, "Snitch" with Dwayne Johnson and the 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray of Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon." Get More »
This week: The former CIA agent played by Liam Neeson is the one who ends up being abducted instead of his daughter in "Taken 2," the hit action sequel that also features the return of Maggie Grace as Neeson's daughter and Famke Janssen as his ex-wife in a story that moves the action to Istanbul.
In 2008's smash hit "Taken," Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) had to rescue his daughter, but, in "Taken 2," it's him who gets snatched up, and his one-and-only pride and joy Kim (Maggie Grace) has to get dad out of trouble.
Of course, Neeson gets more than his fair share of opportunities to tear a bunch of Albanian mafiosi a new a**hole, and show off some cunning tricks of the trade he didn't get to display on his first merry-go-round. Get More »
Famke Janssen has played a lot of parts — sexy superhero, love-struck journalist, evil witch — but she's about to add a new line to her resume: Writer/ Director. That's right, the brunette stunner has moved to the other side of the camera for her new film, "Bringing Up Bobby," a project that took her quite some to cobble together ... which just goes to show how hard it really is to get a movie made.
The comedy follows Olive (Milla Jovovich), a con artist who moves her son to a conservative neighborhood in Oklahoma in an effort to build a better future. We won't spoil it for you, but suffice to say that things don't exactly go as planned for our ambitious heroine or her offspring. Janssen chatted with us about what inspired her to want to tell this story, how it was directing for the first time and what man she would love to share some love scenes with when she returns to the silver screen.

For the last decade or more, "Resident Evil: Retribution" star Milla Jovovich has been synonymous with one thing: Kicking ass. But now, she's breaking out of that mold and playing against type in the brand new trailer for the indie dramedy "Bringing Up Bobby."
And she's getting a little help from none other than Famke Janssen herself. Get More »
Let's face it, most of us have been, as David Lee Roth once so eloquently put it, "Hot For Teacher." And while we adore the earnest and inspirational wisdom of teachers in movies like "Dead Poets Society," "Stand and Deliver" and "Mr. Holland's Opus," that's not what we're talking about here.
If our favorite educators had looked like these 12 big-screen teachers ranked in the gallery below, we would have been happy flunking year after year just to keep watching them draw on the chalkboard.

Liam Neeson has a particular set of skills, skills he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for people who don't enjoy kick-ass action movies. And if you don't believe him, be warned: He will look for you, he will find you and he will entertain the hell out of you.
