  • Exclusive Clip: Fury's Michael Peña Explains What It's Like Driving a Tank
    It seems like every year we get a few more war films to add to the genre's long cinematic history. The chance for one to differentiate itself in a meaningful way is slim, but David Ayer's 2014 film Fury has done just that. Inspired by the veterans in his family and by books like Belton […]

  • 18 Single-Serve Desserts to Satisfy Any Sweet Tooth
    Chances are, no matter what time of year it is, you’re trying to watch what you eat.

  • Last-Minute Halloween Ideas Inspired by TV's Toughest Women
    I'm a pretty modest dresser for the most part. While I favor the chic or trendy I reserve the sizzle (and jiggle) for special occasions and worthy audiences.
