Indiana Jones hat fetches over $500,000 at auction

Indiana Jones's signature fedora fetched more than half a million dollars at a blockbuster London auction of rare memorabilia from some of the most iconic movies of the past 40 years.

If you think celebrities don't have time to do anything else apart from showbiz commitments, you're wrong.

Unflinching look at porn and prostitution in ‘The Deuce’s’ sophomore season

      In the '70s, while the groundbreaking movies of Filipino film practitioners led to the rebirth of the so-called Golden Age of Philippine cinema, New York City's Times Square area bore witness to a different kind of "second coming."   Jump-started by Andy Warhol's "Blue Movie" and Bill Osco's "Mona," the Golden Age of Porn gave rise (no pun intended) to the dauntless likes of Linda Lovelace ("Deep Throat"), Marilyn Chambers ("Behind the Green Door") and their "irrepressible" male counterparts, John Holmes, Harry Reems and Ron Jeremy, who still appears in mainstream flicks these days.   At the time, even Pulitzer-winning film critic R...Keep on reading: Unflinching look at porn and prostitution in ‘The Deuce’s’ sophomore season.....»»

  LOS ANGELES---"Every morning you drive past the J and K stages of the 'Harry Potter' world.

Robotel: Hotel in Japan staffed by robot dinosaurs

The reception at the Henn na Hotel east of Tokyo is eerily quiet until customers approach the robot dinosaurs manning the front desk. Their sensors detect the motion and they bellow "Welcome." It might be about the weirdest check-in experience possible, but that's exactly the point at the Henn na (whose name means 'weird') chain, which bills itself as offering the world's first hotels staffed by robots. The front desk staff are a pair of giant dinosaurs that look like cast members of the Jurassic Park movies, except for the tiny bellboy hats perched on their heads. The robo-dinos process check-ins through a tablet system that also allows customers to choose which language -- Jap...Keep on reading: Robotel: Hotel in Japan staffed by robot dinosaurs.....»»
