As you scroll down the page, you’ll start to see an Alien Vs. Predator theme develop. We’re not sure how easy it will be for the owner to sell this house but we wish him the best of luck.

Why Fans Will Love (Or Hate) 'Dumb And Dumber To'
"Dumb and Dumber To" is in theaters now. Right at this very moment. If you wanted to, you could stop reading this (please don't) and jet over to the local multiplex to see how Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas have aged in the last twenty years.

Which is why we've gone ahead and said all the yeses and nos for you. Because there's good and bad in "Dumb and...

Was Johnny Depp Drunk At The Hollywood Film Awards?
Johnny Depp seemed a little off at the Hollywood Film Awards on Friday night. When the actor introduced documentary "Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon" he appeared drunk.

The actor walked on stage and approached the two-headed microphone, exclaiming, "That's the weirdest microphone I ever saw in my life."

He attempted to adjust the microphone stand, scratched his head and looked at his feet. "I'm not very good at this type of thing," he confessed.

Looking at the teleprompter, he said, "Watch, I'm going to read this thing."

Many wondered if the actor had a little too much to drink b...

‘Foxcatcher’ With Channing Tatum And Steve Carell Is a Solid A

November 14th, 2014 9:10pm EST
Foxcatcher
Honestly, I had no desire to see this film. I'm not a big wrestling fan. Steve Carell, even though I think he’s talented, doesn't really get me into the theatre. Plus, I'm not a Magic Mike fan, so Channing Tatum doesn't do it for me, but all of my critic friends have been saying it is a movie not to be missed. So, I've check it out.

Background:
The film comes from director Bennett Miller, who is loved by critics. He did Brad Pitt's Moneyball and Capote, both heavily adored by the Academy, so it is no surprise that Foxcatcher will probably do very well this awards season. Bennett also re-te...
