"Halloween," "Friday the 13th, "A Nightmare of Elm Street." There have been a number of horror movie remakes in recent years, taking classic horror films from the 70's and 80's and turning them into modern day massacres. Ranging everywhere from "The Wolfman" to "Fright Night," these remakes either come across as really awesome or really unnecessary. I mean, hell, most of these horror films were only made about twenty years ago.

The latest, and perhaps most anticipated, horror remake to grace the silver screen with its senseless gore and violence is Fede Alvarez' "Evil Dead." Produced by both Sam Raimi (the original director) and
Bruce Campbell (the original star), "Evil Dead" looks to be different enough for first-time viewers and gruesome enough for diehard fans. So did "Evil Dead" live up to the hype?

Oblivion-Tom-Cruise

By Amelia Mularz

Sure, we've all been thinking it. Suri Cruise, when will you start pulling your own weight? Itty bitty high heels don't grow on trees, ya know.

Suri, daughter to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, is at the ripe age of six, which in celeb child years means she's nearly ready to carry her own mortgage. Drew Barrymore, who herself is the daughter of a Hollywood family, had a film under her belt by age four, and starred in E.T. at seven. If Suri were Shirley Temple, she'd already have an Oscar sitting in her playroom. And then there's the more recent success of Quvenzhané Wallis, who got an Oscar nom earlier this year. She was only five when she auditioned for "Beasts of the Southern Wild."

42

By Tara Fowler

It's a film that's been 20 years in the making: a biopic on Jackie Robinson, the man to break the color barrier in baseball. Sure, there've been others, such as 1950's "The Jackie Robinson Story" (starring Robinson himself) or TNT's "The Court-Martial of Jackie Robinson" or HBO's "Soul of the Game." And yet, there's never been one like this weekend's "42," starring Chadwick Boseman as Robinson and Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey, the Dodgers' general manager who signed him. I don't want to spoil it, so all I can say is, don't miss seeing "42." But to prepare you, here are five interesting facts you didn't know about the man himself:

Will Ferrell

There is only one man who can accept the MTV Movie Awards' inaugural Comedic Genius Award. But he is a man of many names: Ricky Bobby, Frank the Tank, Alex Trebek and Mugatu, to name just a few. The one he's most often credited as is Will Ferrell, "Saturday Night Live" legend and star of such hits as "Anchorman" and the forthcoming "Anchorman: The Legend Continues."

Boiling down Ferrell's funniest moments to five is a nearly impossible challenge, but it's one we're happy to rise to. Get your jazz flutes ready and join us as we dive into the award winner's five most comedically genius moments.

5. The Tragic Fall of Mustafa: In which he is still alive ... just very, very badly burned.

Lobot

By Ryan Rigley

There have been several comparisons drawn between "Star Wars" and the newest "Star Trek" film since its release back in 2009. "I wouldn’t say that the first movie is an absolute Star Wars derivation," explains director J. J. Abrams. "When 'Star Wars' came out, people referred to 'Star Trek,' because it was spaceships. Everything is sort of a derivation of everything else. Just the way 'Star Wars' was of 'Flash Gordon' and of dogfight war films in the TIE Fighter sequences. Everything has something it borrows from."

Fast forward to 2013, where J. J. Abrams is now the man behind both the "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" franchises. Clearly, there are going to be some overlapping themes echoed in both films. But what of the characters that will be making an appearance in the new "Star Wars" trilogy? Not Luke or Leia, I'm talking about minor characters like Lobot, who makes a very brief appearance on Cloud City in "The Empire Strikes Back."

Bradley Cooper

By Amelia Mularz

As movie fans, we've gotten used to seeing stars step out in varying states of transformation for roles. Recently we've seen Christian Bale with a comb-over and Reese Witherspoon as a brunette. But nothing could've prepared us for Bradley Cooper's new look, which he debuted this week.

A perm.

Yes, a real honest-to-goodness perm. The highly processed, gel-smothered, crunchy-to-the-touch hairstyle that ranked supreme in the 1980s is back and living on the head of the Sexiest Man Alive. Spotted on the set of a new David O. Russell film, Bradley Cooper borrowed a page from adolescent girls of yesteryear and went full-fledged fake curly.

Jurassic

By Eddie Wright

On the eve of the 3-D release of "Jurassic Park," dinosaur expert, and consultant on the film, Jack Horner – and inspiration for Sam Neil's character – teased a tiny detail about the an as-of-yet-unseen dinosaur that'll make an appearance in the upcoming Colin Trevorrow-directed "Jurassic Park 4." He said:

"I can't actually tell you who that will be…But you'll want to keep the lights on after you see this movie."

So that got me thinking. What utterly terrifying dinosaur could pop up in the flick? We've seen the T-Rex, Velociraptors, and Dilophosaurus munch some human in the first film, "The Lost World" added the Compsognathus, and "Jurassic Park III" had a Pteranodon attack and introduced the audience to the big bad Spinosaurus. So which horrible, thunderous lizard is next? Let's take a guess.

Jurassic

By Tara Fowler

One of my earliest memories is going to see "Jurassic Park" with my father (my parents didn't believe in little things called "ratings restrictions"). I don't remember much of the actual movie from the T. rex attack on because I spent it with my arms wrapped around my dad's neck staring at the back of the theater.

And yet, despite traumatizing my 4-year-old self, "Jurassic Park" has since managed to become one of my favorite movies (and books) of all time. In honor of this weekend's 3D re-release, I've cobbled together seven facts about the film. Read on, dinosaur aficionados!
