Sifting through page after page of photos of "Safe Haven" star Julianne Hough was a tough job, but someone had to do it.
The sometimes-"Dancing With the Stars" pro and sometimes-country music singer is undeniably gorgeous. And, thanks to this week's Hot People Looking Hot gallery, we can honestly tell you that the girl doesn't take a bad picture. She always seems to have the perfect dress and the perfect smile. Her hair, skin, toenails, whatever are flawless.
In other words, we'd hate her if we didn't love her so much.
We think you'll enjoy this gallery almost as much as we enjoyed making it, so start flippin'.
Taste is subjective, right? One man's trainwreck is another man's cult classic... most of the time. But some movies are so bad, we've often suspected even the actors involved know they're making a piece of garbage.
This mashup of bad-movie characters proves our suspicions were right: In this educational video from Film.com, the brutal truth of 2012's worst movies comes straight from the horses' mouths.
Awards season is now underway, which means for the next few months Hollywood will carry out its competitive annual tradition of putting roses on the noses, so to speak, of the year's decidedly best actors and actresses of the human variety. Looking back at some of the finest flicks from 2012, though, we noticed some pretty significant contributions coming in courtesy of the rest of the animal kingdom.
So, to throw our furry film friends a proverbial golden bone, here are our top five picks for tail-waggingest animal performances of the year. Get More »
This week: Years after directing the sci-fi masterpieces "Alien" and "Blade Runner," Ridley Scott returns to science fiction with the harrowing and ambitious "Alien" prequel "Prometheus" with Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Michael Fassbender.
Also new this week is the movie-musical "Rock of Ages," the Edgar Allan Poe-themed mystery thriller "The Raven," and the Blu-ray debuts of "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial," "Little Shop of Horrors" and "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"
Music isn't the only thing that rocks in "Rock of Ages." After all, '80s fashion is totally making a comeback.
Now, before you roll your eyes and get really nervous, take a beat. Regardless of the silliness, there's no denying Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Mary J. Blige and the rest of the gang look incredible. And you don't have to go big like they did when the Bourbon Room was in its heyday.
Check out this week's Get the Goods and see what we mean. The accessories are awesomely now and we know you'll look totally sweet rockin' these looks.
What was supposed to be a big weekend for new movies turned out to be a big weekend for old movies, as holdovers "Madagascar 3" and "Prometheus" took the top two spots at the box office following disappointing debuts for "Rock of Ages" and "That's My Boy."
According to Film.com, "Madagascar 3" held on to the number one position for the second week running thanks to a strong $35.5 million take, while second place "Prometheus" brought in an additional $20.1 million. "Rock of Ages" finished in third with $15.1 million, while "That's My Boy" wound up way back in fifth with just $13 million.
For a full run down of the weekend box office, including figures for returning hits "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Men in Black 3," head to Film.com.
With "Rock of Ages" thundering through theaters on Friday, the retro spotlight will once again shine on the crazy '80s, the decade of decadence when rock stars were true rock stars and unapologetic about being so.
In anticipation of the nostalgia this will inspire, we're looking at nine hard-rock and heavy-metal films that have made noise in the mainstream. Horns up!
Before the 1990s, there was a stretch of time -- roughly 10 years or so -- we refer to as "the '80s." It was, like, this totally rad era in which a geriatric Rodney Dangerfield could be a party animal, coke was a problem and New Coke was an even gnarlier problem. And the only rule for your hair was that it had to appear hilarious to anyone not living in the '80s.
With the jukebox broadway musical "Rock of Ages" coming to theaters, we say it's time to grab a pogo ball and hop our way through the historical hallway of hairstyles, searching for what made '80s yearbooks into the comedy treasure chests they've become.
