The 15 Most Evil Movie Corporations

The East Fox Searchlight

WARNING: SPOILERS all up in the conference room.

Never trust an organized entity, especially if it has a 401K plan.

As this week's new thriller "The East" chronicles a former FBI agent's transition to a private job at a sinister intelligence agency, we thought we'd look back at the rich history of evil movie corporations and separate the maniacally, outrageously, inexcusably evil from the "Aw, that's cute, look at them trying to be evil" evil.

'The Hobbit' and Other Little People Movies, From Least to Most Belittling

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Warner Bros.

"The Hobbit" hits theaters this Friday and besides all the hobbits, orcs, elves, humans, dragons and Gollums, there's also a group of sturdy folk who form the backbone of the movie: Dwarves.

This isn't the first time dwarves have been portrayed in film, of course — and it's not the first time that little people have been played on screen by regular-sized folks, either. But "The Hobbit," with its band of stout and heroic dwarven heroes, is undoubtedly one of the most prominent portrayals of little people in Hollywood's long and checkered history. Get More »

Hot People Looking Hot: Jessica Biel Photos

Jessica Biel's breakout role was on the small screen as wholesome Mary Camden in the hit family drama "7th Heaven." She soon beefed up her career and her body with starring roles in action movies like "Blade: Trinity," "The A-Team" and the "Total Recall" remake.

Jessica isn't just good at beating up the bad guys. She's devoted equal parts of her career to pretty much every kind of movie genre imaginable from horror ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") to period dramas ("The Illusionist," "Hitchcock") to romantic comedies ("Playing For Keeps").

But no matter what role Jessica takes on, she always brings her signature girl next door charm and stunning good looks with her. Putting a Hot People Looking Hot gallery together for Mrs. Justin Timberlake is an honor and a privilege.

The Hulk in "The Avengers" Marvel Studios

It isn't just a time when it is socially acceptable to eat gelatinous discs of cranberry flavoring and call it respecting tradition, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what is best in life.

We have it good on Planet Fanboy. I mean, we've got the reduced gravity, the constantly clement temperature and the complete ban on that "Tonight We Are Young" song.

Furthermore, there appears to be no end in sight to our stranglehold on big-budget movies. Here, then, a quick list of things we should be thankful for.

Video Q&A: Bryan Cranston on Giving Colin Farrell Tough Love

There is no trip to Mars in the new remake of "Total Recall," but ruthless corporate leader Vilos Cohaagen is back and played by Bryan Cranston. Unlike the original movie, Cohaagen has a complicated, almost father-son relationship with Doug Quaid, played by Colin Farrell.

"I wanted the impression to be that Colin's character was acting out as a teenage son and he just needed tough love," he tells NextMovie. Get More »

Can the New 'Total Recall' Make Memories Like the Original?


I was 15 years old when "Total Recall" came out, the summer where childhood was saying its final goodbyes and independence was readying itself for an introduction. Going to the movies without grown-ups was still something of a novelty, particularly ones with so much gratuitous sex and violence.

Seeing "Total Recall," however, wasn't just a night out that felt more adult, it was a milestone for me in understanding how something could be both thoughtful and crowd-pleasing at the same time. Get More »

Video Q&A: Jessica Biel on the Etiquette of Smacking Kate Beckinsale Around

After roles in movies like "Blade: Trinity" and the remake of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," it's safe to say Jessica Biel was well prepared for the physical challenges of "Total Recall," in which she plays the rebel agent Melina.

"It is relentless," she says of the pacing of the remake of 1990's "Total Recall." "It's like a bullet train that you jump on and can't get off." Get More »
