The Best and Worst Movie Posters of 2011

No, that image above is not a real Larry Crowne poster. But don’t you wish it were? The Hollywood Movie Poster has been on life support for a few decades now. Criterion Collection DVD covers are more creative. Amateur practitioners like Mondo have crossed over into the mainstream. And it turns out that freaking Poland makes better movie posters than we do. By comparison, the typical Hollywood poster can’t help but look bland…which makes it all the more impressive when something sticks out from the pack. In the video below, I round up the two best and two worst posters of the year. (Click here for more of our favorites, and click here for more of our least favorites.) Hint: Larry Crowne is not one of the best. READ FULL STORY

Watch Rooney Mara's visit to 'The Late Show with David Letterman' -- VIDEO

The girl with the busy schedule.

Before heading over to the Ziegfeld Theater for the premiere of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, star Rooney Mara stopped right around the block at The Late Show With David Letterman to talk about, among other things, her football background (Fun faux fact: For two years she was a wide receiver for the Broncos. Take that, Tebow!) and the arduous audition and filming process once again. Check out Letterman’s (who seemed pretty psyched about the film, wouldn’t you say?) full interview with the Golden Globe-nominated actress below, including the anecdote at the 9:40 mark in which Rooney describes what happened to a drunk wedding guest who asked her to dance while she was still trying to shake off playing Lisbeth Salander. Let’s just say, it doesn’t end in a fox-trot for the poor guy.

Alec Baldwin has words for flight attendants in online, er, 'apology'?

Alec Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flight on Monday, in part, for refusing to stop playing Words With Friends, but the 30 Rock star certainly had no shortage of words when he wrote a piece for The Huffington Post regarding the incident titled “My Flying Lesson.” (Ah, if only Carol had been his Captain!)

The now Twitter-less star (he quit the social networking site hours after sending out a series of angry tweets at the airline) had way more than a 140 characters in what can only be described as a non-apology apology. While Baldwin does begin his open letter by apologizing to his fellow passengers on the flight (“It was never my intention to inconvenience anyone”) the actor mostly aired his frustrations with the airline industry in general.

Celebs who have quit Twitter: Alec Baldwin joins the club


Alec Baldwin has plenty of prestigious titles in Hollywood (Emmy winner, Oscar nominee, the good Baldwin brother), but he added two more (arguably less prestigious) bragging rights to his resume this week: Celebrity booted from a plane and a Twitter quitter.

One day after Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flights after refusing to stop playing his Words with Friends game and went on a Twitter rampage about the incident (one tweet read, “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt”), the 30 Rock star deactivated his account from the social networking site in light of the controversy.

'GamePro' shuts down print magazine: Farewell, childhood


Long ago, in the early 1990s, it wasn’t always easy to find people who shared your passions. There were no Facebook groups or trending topics. Primordial online chat rooms were only readily accessible to smart people with better technology than my family’s old Macintosh. I was somehow the only person in my elementary school class who played videogames — or maybe there were more gamers, and we all just kept quiet, because let’s put it this way: Talking about Super Mario wasn’t the best way to not get made fun of. So for me, GamePro was an oasis of sanity; proof that there were other people, smart people, adult people who dug videogames as much as I did. READ FULL STORY

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show: If you're a fatty and you know it, clap your hands [CLAP, CLAP]

I just watched an hour-long commercial for overpriced lingerie, a.k.a. The 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, a.k.a. Put That Down, You Fat Fool, It’s Full of Dangerous Nutrients.

You think the models looked too skinny? Well you must be a real jealous bitch! They were BORN THIS WAY, baby. The runway finale song said so. There’s no need to worry about these starving women. I swear, if you stare long enough at the protruding clavicles of the Angels, you can have some really deep thoughts. I’ll share some of mine below.


Miranda Kerr’s rib cage: What’s really higher in value, the $2.5 million Fantasy Bra, or the privilege of “opening the aquatic section”? (Someone should ask Adam Levine.)

Karlie Kloss’ pelvic girdle: If I showed up to the office tomorrow in pink jellyfish wings, would everyone think “too much” or “not enough”? Same question: mirrorball ass.

Chanel Iman’s coccyx: Do you think that when Will Ferrell said “No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative” in Blades of Glory (sampled in Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “N**gas in Paris”), he was also referring to the Victoria’s Secret PINK collection? And also, possibly, its most original 2011 creation, Nicki Minaj? READ FULL STORY

'Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown' is terrible. Will kids care?

I am a serious Peanuts aficionado. When I was a kid, I constantly visited our local library to borrow the same gloriously dogeared Peanuts collections. In high school, I wrote a ten-minute speech about the history of the American comic strip, and Peanuts took up about three of those minutes. (Calvin and Hobbes and Doonesbury also featured prominently. Psh, Garfield.) A few years ago, I devoured David Michaelis’ massive biography of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz in a couple marathon reading sessions. But my love for Charlie Brown’s melancholic circle of semi-friends goes back much longer, into the deepest primordial era of my consciousness. That’s because, before I could read Peanuts, I watched Peanuts. READ FULL STORY

This Week's Cover: Stars' Worst Movies! We list the most embarrassing films A-listers ever made

Like you, we like movie stars. We flock to see their films, cheer when they win Oscars, and memorize their famous lines. But sometimes they forget to return the love, cranking out movies that are so god-awful we’re left slack-jawed, wondering how the hell the things ever got made. We’re not talking about high-profile trainwrecks like Ben Affleck’s Gigli or George Clooney’s Batman & Robin. We’re talking about the under-the-radar pieces of celluloid dreck that, more often than not, limp straight to DVD and quickly vanish into out-of-print oblivion.

For instance, did you know that Johnny Depp once played a horny teen in a sex-romp called Private Resort? Or that Sandra Bullock made sweet jungle love in a cheap adventure called Fire on the Amazon? Or that Brad Pitt played a lovelorn high school jock in a move called Cutting Class? If you did, then we salute you. If not, then boy, are you in for a treat. We went back and unearthed the lamest, most ridiculous films your favorite A-List stars ever appeared in — and we giddily share with you all the hilarious highlights. Such as how Paul Rudd, as a peroxide-blond in Gen-Y Cops, chases a robot through Hong Kong and utters the line, “Roseanne Barr Arnold will be the President of the United States before you two punks see the light of day,” and how Ryan Reynolds’ facial hair changes from scene to scene in a raunchy American Pie knockoff that’s honestly called Coming Soon.

Forget roasting, brining, or deep-frying. This Thanksgiving, we bring you 24 turkeys that are delicious all by themselves.

Kim Kardashian heads to Australia to talk about her divorce. Yep, it's still annoying Down Under!

Making for quite possibly the worst thing to happen to Australia since those shark attacks in the summer of 2001 and Vegemite, Kim Kardashian made a stop in the land down under on the international leg of her Divorce Tour 2011.

Kardashian, with sister Khloe by her side, visited an Australian talk show where she cleared the air about a few things. Mainly, that her 72-day marriage was not a money-grubbing publicity stunt and she is selflessly not taking time for herself as to not disappoint her fans. That’s right PopWatchers, she’s doing this for us. Watch the interview below: READ FULL STORY

McDonald's McRib is back: News that makes you McHungry or McHorrified?

Oh, McDonald’s. I already hate myself enough, and now you shove the deliciously heinous McRib back in my face? That’s right — almost one year after the fast food chain resurrected the McRib (and then sent it back to junk-food heaven to party with Surge and Tastetations), McDonald’s is bringing back the 500-calorie sandwich until Nov. 14. Strangely, the McRib is only offered year-round in one country, Germany. But that’s not the only suspicious thing about the sandwich. Vote after the jump: What’s the biggest mystery surrounding the McRib? READ FULL STORY
