It's a horror story that any movie fan can relate to, Twi-Hard or not: You're watching TV and you see the name of your favorite movie listed on your channel guide, only to flip over and discover that the "Twilight" they're showing doesn't have Edward and Jacob battling for the love of Bella-- but instead Gene Hackman and Paul Newman fighting over Susan Sarandon.
You were just punked by Same Name Syndrome.
It happens often. In fact, just this week, Oliver Stone's "Savages" hits theaters — a film that bears absolutely no resemblance to Philip Seymour Hoffman's 2007 film "The Savages." Get More »
In honor of Rihanna making a splashy debut in the ocean-bound blockbuster "Battleship," we're locked, loaded and counting down some of the sexiest screen sirens to handle monster weapons.
That's right, we're bringing out the big guns, in more ways than one, as these scorching hot ladies show us a thing or two about proper marksmanship.
If you ask a real spook, most mainstream spy movies range from the ludicrous to the eerily realistic.
Or at least, that's what American intelligence veterans told us at the International Spy Museum recently. According to them, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (now out on DVD) falls squarely in the middle: Most of the gadgets -- even those that fail -- are more fact than fiction, and the quick-witted way the team works together gets a thumbs up; but the Kremlin exploding and the climbing of the Burj Khalifa is pure fantasy. After some discussion, it seemed there was one spy film that all of them could agree was tops: "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," based on John le Carré's best-selling novel.
As for what doesn't work: any movie that focuses on graphic, widespread violence, maniacal agents or drop-dead-gorgeous vixens. "I've always been upset that most spy movies show spies as deranged assassins out there trying to off the American public!" said Jonna Mendez, former Chief of Disguise, aka "a real-life Q."
Here are five spy movies that the real-life spies found worth watching. Get More »
Hot chicks with guns. Is there anything sexier?
Yes, of course there is. Lingerie models come to mind. Bikinis. Maybe some sort of naughty teacher scenario. But if you're one of those socially maladjusted guys [raises hand] that can only express your suppressed sexuality through the heroine avatars of your favorite violent video game, then you'll want to check out "Colombiana" (in theaters Aug. 26), starring Zoe Saldana.
And if you absolutely require more ammo-fueled feminism, we've made a list of film's 20 hottest pistol-totin' babes, just for you.
You may be able to purchase "Saw: The Final Chapter" today on Blu-Ray and DVD, but the DVDiva is too afraid to watch it.
Instead, Brigitte weighs in on "Secretariat" and "Red" before totally geeking out (reciting poetry!?) over the fact that "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" is now available on Blu-Ray!
When you were a kid did you ever fantasize that your dad or grandpa might secretly be a retired spy? Well luckily for you we now have the movie "RED" (on DVD & Bly-ray today), which is exactly what transpired in your 9-year-old brain while hanging upside down from the playground monkey bars.
The title stands for "retired, extremely dangerous," and refers specifically to former black ops agent Frank Moses (Bruce Willis), who is having some difficulty adapting to his newfound life of leisure after an action-packed career as a CIA spook.
Out of the blue, Frank finds himself the target of a CIA wet team, which he dispatches with ease, and before you can say "yippee ki-yay" he hauls ass to Kansas City to abduct/protect Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker), the pension office worker he has a thing for. Get More »
With "Green Hornet" opening at the top of the box office to strong MLK weekend numbers and similar genre satires like "Kick-Ass" and "Red" doing solid business, we may be entering the era of comic book action comedies.
Now "Red," which was based on a comic by Warren Ellis & Cully Hamner, is enjoying the perks of earning all that green. Collider has learned that original screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber have been hired by Summit Entertainment to script a sequel to the studio's highest grossing film outside the "Twilight" industry.

In the new action blow-out "Red," which stands for "Retired, Extremely Dangerous," a group of ex-CIA agents led by Bruce Willis are hunted by high-tech assassins.
Two of those agents are played by Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren, stars gleefully playing against their age as gun-toting badasses (also see Dames With Guns).
With this in mind, we thought long and hard about some of the best elderly actors out there still scoring big roles and monster acclaim. Here are our nine very favorite old-timers in Hollywood. Get More »
Just because summer is coming to an end doesn't mean that Hollywood's well of blockbusters has run dry. Sure, fall is when studios roll out all their small, serious, Oscar-bait fare... but this year, the autumnal season is rife with movies that are just, well, BIG.
Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren kick booty as ex-CIA agents in "RED," Michael Douglas and Shia LaBeouf look to greedily rake in dough at the box office with Oliver Stone's "Wall Street" sequel, Will Ferrell and Brad Pitt duke it out as animated superheroes in "Megamind"... and a boy wizard you may have heard of (hint: Harry Potter) begins the final chapter of his big-screen journey.
