Just in time for Halloween, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is out on DVD! The 4th installment of the franchise sees Johnny Depp’s wiley Captain Jack Sparrow leading a quest to find the Fountain of Youth in the Americas (as if Johnny Depp doesn’t get better with age). Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane and even more action than the previous films make this movie more than running around drunk at Disneyland. Check out the trailer!

How is it humanly possible that at age 48, Johnny Depp is sexier than he was when I used to rip his photos out of Tiger Beat? From Officer Tom Hanson to Captain Jack Sparrow, this man is aging like a bottle of the French Bordeaux of which he is so fond. There’s a reason why he’s been voted People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive … twice! Light up a Cuban cigar and click away to admire some of the irresistible iconoclast’s finest moments.
Behold, the trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” The rest of the interwebs is excited about it because Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz seem to have a love/hate flirtation going on as they search for the fountain of youth, even though Johnny has said Jack Sparrow is gay. I am excited about it because … it’s a mermaid movie! A genre that should be much more common. Keep reading »
I have this theory that Keira Knightley plays the same character in nearly every movie and gets lauded by critics as if she’s reinvented the wheel every time. With the exception of films like Domino, The Jacket, and Love Actually, Knightley is always cast a period film heroine from an upper-crust family who slums it with a poor guy or wins the heart of a rich cad. To prove my theory, I’ve assembled pictures of six of Keira’s most famous characters. See if you can match the letter of the image to the number of the film. FYI, I’ll reveal the answers at the end of the day, so check back.
THE FILMS: Atonement (1); The Duchess (2); King Arthur (3); Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (4); Pride & Prejudice (5); Silk (6)

Did you see that movie? You know the guy who lives next to Samantha and has tons of sex? Well, not only is he quite attractive, but he also seems like a really hardworking family guy. The 32-year-old French actor Gilles Marini has been inundated with phone calls, emails, and job offers since the movie (and his goods) premiered, but he sounds so nice! “I just was not expecting this at all,” he told Reuters. “Maybe people will see me as the naked guy for a bit but as soon as someone gives me a chance to do something else I can prove I can do that. “I am not 18 years-old with this smacking me in the face so that I lose control of what I am. It is a blessing. I am very humbled and touched by all the attention. It is wonderful for my life, for my family and for my future.” Also, if you’re logged into MySpace, you can view this sepia-tone photo of him with Johnny Depp on the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.
