Hollywood's endless revisiting of cherished figures from our past has always been a successful entertainment ploy. And none more so than the current obsession of making every character in a movie a dangerous, sexy twenty-something.
In the March issue of GQ, the great Mark Harris debunks one of the most prevalent theories in Hollywood today: that movies stars are dead, replaced by recognizable characters like superheros, YA heroines and even pirates. As Harris writes: "We still need movie stars. And perhaps more surprisingly, we still have movie stars -- lots of them, and arguably a more talented and interesting variety than at any time in the past thirty years. But they play by new rules, and they have to navigate an industry that often seems hostile to their very existence."

Dear Steven Soderbergh: Please don't stop making movies. Your name is high on the list of filmmakers whose careers I'm thankful have coincided with my career as a movie critic. And Side Effects is further proof that you are at the height of your powers as a filmmaker.
Out of the Loop: A struggling filmmaker who wishes he made Looper is visited by his future self who travels back in time to give him the idea for Looper.
This is the time of year for reflecting on the things that we are most thankful for. For me it's a loving boyfriend, a nice family, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and People's "Sexiest Man Alive," Channing Tatum. In this video Bryan Safi and I weigh in on 2012's sexy pick.
In 26 years of awarding the sexiest man alive title,People has bestowed the title only once to a man of color (Denzel Washington in 1996) and never to an out gay man.
I explore some of the magazine's choices, including Chris Hemsworth, Blake Shelton, Denzel Washington, Ben Affleck, Damian Lewis and the always-popular Matt Bomer. Just when you thought you'd tugged on your white collar enough, Bomer makes you sweat yet again. I'm in.
The 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was Wednesday night and it included performances by Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, and Rihanna. Also, Channing Tatum is People Magazine's 2012 Sexiest Man Alive and Lady Gaga topless!
THERE'S NOTHNG like an attractive man in a beautifully tailored suit. And there's nothing like an attractive man in...nothing.
On my way to see Magic Mike with my besties, all I could think was, are we the only ones rushing out to see this peep show... and how hard up does this make us?
in my extensive Googling, I've only come across one blogger who asks (but doesn't answer) the question of whether women ogling men is just as sexist as men ogling women. Well, is it? It absolutely is.
Where's the beef?
This is a massive win for all involved, bringing Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane serious film-making clout, further confirming that Mark Wahlberg is an actual 'put butts in the seats' movie star and giving Universal something to laugh about.
While most people are waiting for Spiderman or The Dark Knight Rises, the one film I've been thinking about is Channing Tatum and Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike. I want Tatum to walk away a champion by making a personal film.
If a man really moved like a male stripper in bed we'd need chiropractic care. That's if he wanted to continue amid the laughter.
