Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Insurgent’ Can’t Beat ‘Divergent’ Opening

What does a movie studio want out of its sequels? Is a sequel a failure if it simply matches its predecessor or does it need to make more money? That’s the big question that’s swirling around Insurgent, which made almost exactly as much as Divergent did one year ago. Seriously: there’s only a $500,000 difference in their opening weekends. So is Insurgent a success or a disappointment?

How Do I Get Skunk Smell Out of My House? [Video]

This might be the worst Monday in the history of Mondays. I awoke this morning to my boyfriend saying, "Uhh, ... we have a problem. Jack got sprayed by a skunk."

Now, this is not the first time that my adorable, but not-so-bright dog has been sprayed. In fact, I think this may be the fifth time since we've had him that he's tried to play with a skunk and learned the consequences.

15 Frightening Facts About Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’

Alien is now widely considered to be one of the best sci-fi/horror films ever made, but originally Fox didn't want to make it. In fact, it was only the success of another one of the biggest sci-fi films of all-time — Star Wars — that convinced the studio to give director Ridley Scott the greenlight. So, without Chewbacca, there would be no xenomorphs. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Alien!

‘Goodfellas’ Cast Reuniting For 25th Anniversary Screening

Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas won just one Oscar (for supporting actor Joe Pesci) at the 1991 Academy Awards. (The year’s Best Picture winner was Kevin Costner’s Dances With Wolves.) But the film seems to grow more popular and critically acclaimed every year, to the point where it’s now considered one of Scorsese’s masterpieces, one of the best movies of the 1990s, and perhaps the best gangster film ever made without the word “godfather” in the title. Astonishingly (at least it feels astonishing to an old man like me), it’s been 25 years since Goodfellas made its debut in theaters, an anniversary Scorsese and his cast and crew will celebrate next month with a 25th anniversary screening and reunion at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.
