It seems like only yesterday that Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) walked up to Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and inexplicably started a sentence with, "So check it out, it's like this," kicking off the first illegal street race in the "Fast and Furious" franchise ten minutes into "The Fast and the Furious" (2001). Alas, that was twelve years and many "the"s ago.
Now, on the eve of this week's debut of the sixth installment (!) of this venerable institution of American cinema, cleverly titled "Fast & Furious 6," we'd like to briefly recap the first five films of the franchise for those of you who may have missed a street robbery or a Ludacris megaphone shout along the way.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel "The Great Gatsby" was first published in April 1925 and has since gone on to be read by millions of high school students around the globe, proclaimed as the second-best English language novel by the Modern Library (right behind James Joyce's "Ulysses") and all in all a brilliant depiction of the Roaring Twenties and a scathing deconstruction of post-WWI American idealism.

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. Get More »
The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young
yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier. Get More »
Cosplay is always pretty awesome, but when people fuse their little ones with "Iron Man" it's a heart-melting metallurgical masterpiece indeed.
Tony Stark's in for some real trouble when his new foe The Mandarin traipses into town for "Iron Man Three," so things are bound to get pretty heavy with all the disaster-wreaking and revenge-seeking going down in theaters this weekend.
So, to energize the lighter side of things, as it were, here the absolute most smile-worthy "Iron" kids (no, not the vitamins, silly) ever. Brace for cuteness overload. Get More »

Like Bruce Hornsby once so eloquently put it, that's just the way it is, folks. You had to learn sometime.
Don't believe us? Here are 20 not-so-subtle examples of phallic movie stills that will have you saying to yourself, "Wow, I didn't realize that Jean-Claude Van Damme with a Jheri curl could get any creepier."

We like to recognize the creative ways people celebrate their various degrees of infatuation with the cinema, so we went through the painstaking (read: tummy grumble-inducing) process of scouring the interwebs to pluck the very best in show for these Tinseltown-inspired treats ... just in time for "The Big Wedding," opening April 26.
Grab a bib before you dig into these 25 ridiculously well-designed desserts, 'cause it's pretty much a guarantee you'll be drooling all over the place by the end of this list.

This delectable dish makes us sure the eighth dwarf would be named "Hungry."
We've watched him laugh. We've watched him cry. We've watched him dress up as Edgar Allan Poe and solve crimes, for some reason, and regretted it almost immediately, but still, we watched him. And we'll continue to watch him as he makes new movies, like "The Numbers Station," opening April 26.
Yes, we've come a long way with John Cusack as moviegoing public and at this point we feel like we know him. We feel like we might even be besties. Get More »
