A Real-Life Ghost Whisperer Tells Us Which Ghost Movies Are Most Accurate

Buena Vista

Most of the great mysteries of life will never be explained: Where do we come from, why are we here, how does Carrot Top make a living?

But as a special favor to you, readers, we've managed to clear up one of the big ones -- what really happens when we buy the farm?

We talked to author/psychic Mary Ann Winkowski -- a consultant for "The Ghost Whisperer" and the woman Jennifer Love Hewitt's TV character was based on.

Mary Ann filled us in on which movies get it right and which get it dead wrong.

(We also learned there's a ghost hanging out in the NextMovie office, but that's another story.) Get More »

11 Super-Surprising Director Credits

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Warner Bros.

A whole mess of factors goes into what projects a director takes on. A young up-and-comer might be happy just to get his first directing credit, regardless of what it might actually be about. A director who's been around the block might pick up a project way outside of their wheelhouse just for the experience. And the promise of a couple bucks doesn't hurt, either.

In other words, sometimes you just can't pin a filmmaker down. Here are some rather odd and unexpected director-movie pairings. Get More »

The 9 Greatest Sexless Sex Scenes

Fox Fox

In the new thriller "Stoker," there's a scene involving Mia Wasikowska playing piano with her uncle, played by Matthew Goode. During this incredibly sophisticated duet he puts his arm around her back to play some keys at a higher octave, and they both start breathing heavily…

That's right, it's a sex scene with NO SEX!

This is not an innovative conceit, though, since we have nine other examples of this titillating tactic on display for your viewing pleasure. It's all of the hanky with none of the panky.

Enjoy. Get More »

The 25 Most Essential '90s Movies

Pulp Fiction
Miramax

There's a reason you've recently had the urge to bust out your plaid shirts, Celine Dion albums and dial-up modems, as this week sees the release of two relics of the 1990s: "Titanic 3D" and "American Reunion."

Since both of these movies make us think back to a more innocent time when Monica Lewinsky was an eager young White House intern, our money wasn't on fire and Twittering was a weird body tic, we're reminiscing about that decade's most influential and essential cinematic treasures for future generations. It wasn't easy to narrow down the list (next time, "Problem Child 2," next time ...) but if we were to preserve only 25 flicks from the '90s in a time capsule, they would be these (listed in alphabetical order).

Patrick Swayze's 'Ghost' Still Knows How to Rock

Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in "Ghost"
Everett Collection

What happens when you combine a star we miss, an erotically-charged movie we love (it was 1990, don't hate), and rock 'n' roll?  Philadelphia rockers Valencia proved the results are pretty cool, paying homage to Patrick Swayze using clips from the movie "Ghost" to illustrate their new single, "Dancing With a Ghost."

We think this was a fun way to do a music video, so check out MTV’s Buzzworthy for three and a half minutes of Swayze in his heyday.
