If you ever want to feel bad about your paltry salary, looking into what you favorite A-listers make per film is a good way to do it. No doubt Kristen Stewart works hard on her Twilight movies — it can’t be easy saying some of those lines with a straight face — but can her $25 million payday for Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2 really be worth it?

Actually, yes. Forbes has compiled a list of the actors whose movies offer the highest returns for their hefty paychecks, and Stewart comes in at an impressive #2 on the list. The only person who makes a better investment is Natalie Portman, whose Black Swan ultimately grossed 25 times its $13 million budget. Read the full list after the jump.

As the race for the year’s most coveted trophies came to a close with this weekend’s Oscars ceremony, another much less prestigious awards competition was just getting started. Nominations have been announced for the 32nd Razzie Awards, handed out to the “worst achievements in film” each year.

Leading the 2012 list is Adam Sandler, whose involvement in Jack and Jill, Bucky Larson, and Just Go With It earned him a record-breaking eleven Razzie nominations. That’s more than twice as many as the previous record holder, Norbit star Eddie Murphy, received in 2007. Other standouts include Nicolas Cage, Ken Jeong, Sarah Palin, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, and The Hangover Part II. Read the full list of nominees after the jump.

Here’s one more reason to think twice about seeing the latest Twilight installment, Breaking Dawn, not that box office numbers suggest that many people have really thought twice about going. It’s not just that the film is a terrible one, or that it has some of the most horrific visions of sexual development and romantic relationships we’ve ever seen aimed at teen girls.

No, it is that the movie is reportedly causing seizures in some viewers. The explanation, which goes hand in hand with some Breaking Dawn spoilers, is below. Read More »

In the 1980s, Kenny Loggins was the king of the movie soundtrack. The soft rocker did the theme songs to Top Gun (Danger Zone), Caddyshack (I’m Alright), Footloose (Footloose) and more over a few short years in addition to being a very successful solo and group artist. To this day, those songs both help and hinder the career of Loggins and in a two new Funny or Die videos, he embraces their legacy.

After the jump, watch Loggins and his new band Blue Sky Riders performing theme songs to The Help, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Real Steel, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, The Hunger Games and two for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
