This week: Tom Hanks and Halle Berry play several different characters over many lifetimes in the beyond-ambitious time-traversing think piece "Cloud Atlas," written and directed by the Wachowski siblings and Tom Tykwer.
Also new this week is horror icon Leatherface's return in the sequel "Texas Chainsaw 3D," Charlie Sheen in Roman Coppola's comedy "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" and a new mastered-in-4K Blu-ray of "Ghostbusters" that is optimized for Ultra HD TVs. Get More »
Popcorn's great and all, but there's just something super-tasty about movie-inspired cakes.
As film bakery is a real thing these days, there are gobs upon gobs of delicious designs all over the place as many talented maestros are generous enough to pretty up the world with photos of their scrumptious gumption.
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.
25. 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'
This delectable dish makes us sure the eighth dwarf would be named "Hungry."
Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »
Super-fans do the craziest — and coolest — things.
Italy apparently breeds some pretty intense "Ghostbusters" fanatics, as one of them has built an entire working replica of the firehouse basement that the paranormal investigators and eliminators use to store their containment unit. This guy did it all, with working lights, sounds, steam effects and friends to wear Ghostbusters costumes — all that's missing is for Walter Peck to come in and yell, "Shut it all down!"
Check it out in action in the video above, and click on the pic below to see more photos of this stunning achievement. You know at least Dan Aykroyd is totally geeking out over this.
Now imagine what this guy could do with the top of 55 Central Park West.

If you hit adolescence at any point over the last 40 years, you probably spent countless hours mashing buttons on a controller to move a few mushroom-popping plumbers around your family’s TV screen. While all that innocent turtle shell kicking and platform jumping was incredibly fun, what if there was a game where you can guide a wise cracking Bible-quoting hitman on a quest to retrieve Marcellus Wallace’s briefcase? Or, what if a secret button combination code made the Jason Bateman character in your game start to shimmy in his poncho to a Huey Louis and the News tune?
Sadly, such fantasies of "Pulp Fiction" and "American Psycho" video games for the Nintendo Entertainment System will never be a reality, but a few nostalgic GIF-makers have conjured a glimpse of what could've been by creating a handful of amazing 8-bit translations of iconic movies. Get your fill of pure pixelated perfection below. Get More »
Deciding how you like your steak (if you even eat steak) is one thing. Deciding how you like your Bill Murray? Well, that's quite another.
Welcome to our Bill Murray edition of Eff, Marry, Kill.
This game goes exactly how you think it does. We want you to determine which of Bill Murray's quirky characters — Steve Zissou from "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," Dr. Peter Venkman from "Ghostbusters" or Franklin Delano Roosevelt in "Hyde Park on Hudson" — you'd like to spend the rest of your days with, whose days you'd like to end for good and which one you'd enjoy (or suffer through, as the case may be) spending one single night with.

You've probably heard of RateMyProfessors.com, the site that lets college students evaluate teachers in a variety of categories, including hotness (let's face it, we all had/have that one professor we crushed on).
We wondered what it would be like if some of our favorite movie profs were rated by their students. And some of the ratings surprised us... until we read the comments. Get More »
It's been almost 30 years — which is roughly 100 by Hollywood standards — since the original "Ghostbusters" graced the silver screen (and 23 years since "Ghostbusters 2"), but the powers-that-be might finally be gearing up the re-boot.
After what seems like ages of endless chatter, the wheels seem to be in motion to bring everyone's favorite ghost-fighting parapsychology professors to a new generation.
The only catch? Bill Murray won't be in it. We're gonna give you a minute to take that in. Get More »
One of the biggest fads of the 1980s were "Garbage Pail Kids" cards, the irrepressible series of naughty parodies from Topps. When the Cabbage Patch Kids people couldn't take a joke and sued them, the party was over, but the legend didn't die.
Becoming highly coveted collectors items, characters like "Explorin' Norman" picking his nose through his brain continued as an underground phenomenon until the gross-out series returned in 2003.
One of the grossest (read: best) artists of homemade 'Garbage Pail Kids' is Luis Diaz, and he's taken a stab at pokin' jabs at Dan Aykroyd with cards featuring the comedian and his two most famous creations, "Ghostbusters" and "The Blue Brothers," which you can see via the artist's Flickr page.

You've no doubt noticed that almost every phone number in the movies starts with "555." But you may not have realized just how many movies actually mention these phone numbers.
The "555 Supercut" gathers together clips from just a handful of movies that feature the magical digits and, oh my, there are so many! Someone with a lot of free time and even more patience should put together a "Movie Phonebook" with every fictional character and business listed with their respective numbers -- there's probably a lot of overlap.
