Our story: Our 9 favorite - and least-favorite - Summer Glau roles

Your best comment: I think one of her better roles was on The Unit when she played a slightly trampy army wife who ended up having an affair with one of the guys in the unit. It was a departure from her geeky girl persona. — EJP

Our story: Man of Steel set pics reveal why official pic hid Superman's crotch

Your best comment: HI've been desensitized to this sort of thing since the close-up of Dr Manhattan's junk in The Watchmen. — Kraven

Our story: 6 '80s horror films more in need of a remake than Fright Night

Your best comment: I cannot put into words how much I HATE the Fright Night remake. It not only insults the original but it insults me, the viewer. It had a very cold, jaded view of the younger audience and the characters are severely under-developed. The vampires have less powers (no shape shifting at all) and new limitations. For some reason they don't show up on digital camera even though digital has no mirrors in it and they COULD show up on camera in the original Fright Night.

Please... Hollywood, no more remakes... Just re-release the good ones. You know what's under-rated and I only saw it for the first time a few weeks ago? Legend of He11 house. It has Roddy McDowall (from the original Fright Night) in it and it was written by Richard Matheson (I am Legend). Stephen King calls it the scariest Haunted House story ever. I strongly recommend it. — Amanda

Our story: Was Jason Momoa to blame for Conan's failure to conquer the box office?

Your best comment: If Hercules the Legendary Journeys and The Beastmaster television series had a kid together, this movie would have been it.

They should have gotten Wil Farrel to play Conan's dad instead of Ron Pearlman, the opening scene would have been a great SNL skit!

I kept waiting for Conan and his shipmates to burst into song after the pirate ship battle.

It's pure cheese, hokey and ultra-violent.

Don't get me wrong I totally loved it...

As a comedy! — Robert Slatt

Our story: Think that new Hellraiser trailer sucks? So does Clive Barker

Your best comment: I could not even finish watching the trailer. — David

Our story: Spoiler: Have the new Spider-Man's super powers been leaked?

Your best comment: Look out, here comes Spidercheetahchameleoneelman! — C to the J
