<![CDATA[Actors Nobody Cares About Anymore]]> http://ranker.com/list/actors-nobody-cares-about-anymore/ranker-celebrities Some of the greatest actors of all time have, in recent days, turned into a bunch of washed-up hacks that would be somehow become more relevant for receiving a Razzie nomination (or seven). No one debates that these actors have made huge contributions to cinema (many of them appearing in the best movies ever made), but recently they've become big stars in big flops. Need examples? Will Smith in After Earth. Harrison Ford in Cowboys & Aliens. K-19: The Widowmaker. Morning Glory. Just take anything starting with "starring Harrison Ford," and there's a good chance it'll stick on that list.

These has been actors once delighted audiences and now revile them. They're funny actors who made dramas and then weren't funny anymore (Jim Carrey); serious actors who starred in comedies and then tried to keep the joke going (Robert De Niro); and actors who ruined their credibility by being constant tabloid fodder (Angelina Jolie). Whatever the reason, these once great actors have become box office kryptonite and should no longer be commanding the multi-million dollar contracts of the highest paid celebrities in the world.

Which actors are no longer relevant in Hollywood? Which actresses are past their prime? When did big name celebrities become irrelevant? This list of actors who are no longer big celebrities is here to provide users a chance to vote for the celebrities no one cares about anymore. If you think there's a celebrity who has faded from the spotlight and isn't on the list, make sure to add them so other users can remember a time when people cared about the comedic stylings of people like Eddie Murphy (R.I.P., funny man).

From abandoning his own pet monkey in Germany to showing up with a 20-person entourage to guest-host SNL, the Biebs has done quite a few questionable things in recent history. There comes a time in most young famous peoples' lives when their "acting out" incidents become more and more frequent, and the public reaction starts to move away from, "Aw, he probably didn't know any better," to "Ah! What a douchebag!"

Is Justin Bieber a douchebag? Obvs, this depends on who you ask. Devoted fans –Bielebers and those who have Bieber-fever would (or course) say that he is not. But what about the general public? Is spitting in your neighbor's face, threatening paparazzi, and refusing to pay for services that you used enough reason to call someone a douche? Is he actually one of the biggest douchebags in Hollywood? Or is he just acting how any other young person would in these circumstances? Does the Biebs deserve a little slack since he is from Canada and new to all of this fame? 

You can use this list of douch-ey JB moments to make your own decision and judge for yourself. Vote on your favorite d-bag move by the ever-popular teenage heartthrob/popstar, and share with your friends to see what they think.

<![CDATA[The Best Years for Summer Movies]]> http://ranker.com/list/the-best-years-for-summer-movies/ron-mexico List of the best "summer seasons" for new mainstream films. The notion of the "summer blockbuster" movie season started in June of 1975, when Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" became the biggest box office draw to date. (The troubled production had spiraled out of control and wound up costing nearly 4 times as much as was initially projected.) Since then, studios have all attempted to program event movies for the summer months, typically including fare designed to appeal to younger audiences, such as action movies and broad comedies. The long July 4th weekend has always been a coveted release date for new films, but the summer season now extends far longer than it did in the '70s and '80s. New "summer" films now open in early May and continue coming out right up through Labor Day.

In the nearly 40 years since "Jaws," many classic films have seen release during the busy summer movie season. It's now possible to go back and look at the actual historical summers that have given us some of these memorable film experiences, and evaluate which season itself featured the most exciting releases. Here are the best years for summer movies, from '75 through the present day.

With the internet being so spoiler hungry and with most studios (print comic, TV, and film alike) all treating July like Comic Con month, there was a surprising lack of new news out there. (Yes, that's a bit redundant but so is announcing a release date, then announcing a new sequel, then announcing GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 is in fact on that date, when we knew it was happening... and that Marvel had that date... I digress).

Which news coming out of Comic Con was the best news ever? 

Here's the countdown of the news that DID happen, the best moments that were (at least marginally) a surprise, and the moments that made all of those lines worthwhile. This is the best news to come out of SDCC 2014!

<![CDATA[The Greatest Minds of All Time]]> http://ranker.com/list/greatest-minds-of-all-time/walter-graves List of the Greatest Minds of All Time, throughout history. This list represents the most influential thinkers across various disciplines, ranked in a way that represents the power of their ideas and their impact on the world. The wisest men and women include top philosophers, physicists, famous poets, thinkers, teachers, physiologists, artists, inventors, engineers, the most irreplaceable CEOs in the world, economists and politicians and those whose talents span across many fields of study.

This list takes a historic perspective, so the greatest thinkers who are included on this list come from many different eras. The greatest minds of the 21st century may be quite different from great geniuses from the distant past, but each person should be judged within the context of the time that they were living. For example, inventing a new type of telephone in 2013 would not qualify one as "the most brilliant mind of all time," but in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell first patented the telephone, it was an act of genius not seen before.

<![CDATA[The Best Political Films Ever Made]]> http://ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-political-films-ever-made Political movies can approach the notion of politics and government from numerous perspectives, and with many wildly divergent purposes. Some of the earliest and best-remembered films were essentially propaganda tools being used by a political party or ideological group, hoping that the new media of cinema could be useful in helping to persuade or mollify the masses. (In some cases, as with the Nazi documentary "Triumph of the Will" or Sergei Eisenstein's massively influential "Battleship Potemkin," they were undeniable successful, at least initially.)

Political films can also serve the opposite purpose, encouraging people to distrust or even fear their government, or attacking an individual politician or political movement specifically. The paranoia thrillers of the 1970s, for example, reflected America's distrust in its own leaders following the Watergate and other corruption scandals. More recently, George Clooney's "Good Night, and Good Luck" told a true story about journalist Edward R. Murrow facing off against Joseph McCarthy, but as a way of discussing political issues that remained relevant even upon its release in 2005.

Many Americans' understanding of complex political situations, both in their homeland and in other countries, as well, comes from watching popular films. For example, the satirical take on the politics of war in "Wag the Dog," the insights into Greek politics provided by Costa-Gavras "Z" or the look at Bolivian elections in the documentary "Our Brand is Crisis."

This list includes notable and significant political movies from throughout cinema history from all different styles and genres.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Breakout Characters in TV History]]> http://ranker.com/list/greatest-breakout-characters-in-tv-history/ranker-tv

When a television show first starts, the writers of the program already have the star in mind. They write for the characters they think the audience will relate to and like the most and design the show around those characters. However, once the show hits the airwaves, the viewers don’t always agree. Sometimes the true star of the show is the unlikeliest candidate. The breakout character is usually a character who was introduced as part of the supporting cast, but for one reason or another became a fan favorite. This list of the greatest breakout characters in TV history includes characters from both comedies and dramas and has been ranked by the community.

The breakout character on a TV show usually becomes the most discussed and most loved part of the show. He or she has the funniest lines, the best stories, and is portrayed by the favorite actor. After a positive audience reaction, these breakout characters suddenly start to get more screen time and story lines. Characters like Fonzie and Ben Linus were never meant to be huge parts of their shows, but after their introduction, it was inevitable that they’d become pivotal to the show’s success. Some breakout characters, like Frasier Crane, even go on to star in their own series.

They have people-like arms and hands that grab hold of objects, caretakers, and each other, hugging like human babies. They look like they're smiling most of the time. They are tiny, like the size of cats or small dogs. They seem kind of helpless - two of the six species are endangered - slow-moving on the ground where we see them most. They nap a ton, and they do it while hanging upside down from tree limbs. Oh, and they eat upside-down, too. And give birth that way. They only go down to the ground to poop once a week.

What's not to love? This is a collection of GIFs of sloths doing things like napping, hugging, eating, crawling, swimming, communicating, swinging, judging, looking, and other activities. Some are baby sloth gifs, and others are not. Can you even tell the difference? Upvote your favorites.

<![CDATA[The Worst Sequels Of All Time]]> http://ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-worst-sequels-of-all-time The worst movie sequels from throughout film history. These are the follow-up films in a franchise or reboots that brought the most disgrace to a once-beloved properly, and most completely abandoned the elements that had made the first film popular. In many cases, these terrible sequels even abandoned core concepts, characters and ideas that had made the initial films successful - as when the Joel Schumacher Batman series ditched Tim Burton's dark, gloomy sensibility for candy-colored cartoon theatrics, or the "Jaws" series left realism behind and became a flat-out shark horror series.

Follow-up films have always been a huge temptation for movies executives and studios. Name recognition and positive sentiment towards the first movie means a better chance that a sequel will fare better at the box office than a random, unknown title. Additionally, contracts are often signed before an initial movie is made locking in talent for a second, and even third, entry in a potential franchise, meaning there is less up-front dealmaking and casting to be done before production can begin.

In the case of franchises that are essentially 'locked in place' prior to the release of the first movie, like the "Harry Potter" and "Hunger Games" series, these pre-negotiations can be even more all-encompassing. Often, sequel films are shot simultaneously with the original film, or immediately after production has ceased on Part 1. Richard Donner and producer Ilya Salkind famously attempted to shoot "Superman 1" and "Superman 2" at the same time before the idea was abandoned. The concept was again taken up by Peter Jackson when he made the entire "Lord of the Rings" trilogy of films at once.

This photo gallery includes impressive pics of over 75 marine invertebrates, including cephalopods, crustaceans, mollusks, echinoderms, and more. Octopuses, crabs, jellyfish, and starfish may be the main attractions at public aquariums, but there is much, much more to the deep blue sea. For example, there are more than 3,000 unique species of nudibranch (NOO-dee-brank) sea slugs, many in impossibly bright colors that warn predators that they are poisonous. On the other end of the spectrum, the predatory flamboyant cuttlefish and peacock mantis shrimp boast bold colors to distract prey while they use unique tactics to stun and kill them. It's all very ghastly. Enjoy these fascinating photos of sea creatures you never knew existed, and never forget that the ocean is a dangerous place!

<![CDATA[The Most Interesting Androgynous Faces]]> http://ranker.com/list/most-interesting-androgynous-faces-v2/lauren-slocum The combination of masculine and feminine physical characteristics make for a stunning type of beauty. Androgynous men and androgynous women will allure and woo your aesthetic eye in this list of women who look like men... and... men who look like women. 

Over the past decade, society at large has made some serious progress when it comes to sexuality. Androgynous models have gained momentum, and androgynous music icons from the past have become sexual revolutionaries.

And androgyny isn't solely a 21st century endeavor. In an article written on androgyny, Scott Barry Kaufman writes, "Freud speculated...that creative people possess greater cross-sex identification than others." Tapping into both masculinity and femininity, regardless of your gender, provides perspective (and as Freud puts it), a likeliness that your creative juices are flowing a little stronger than the average Joe's.

Moral of the story? Be who you are! Let that freak flag fly. And prepare to be inspired and amazed by the pleasant curiosity of these stunningly beautiful androgynous faces.

They say that you can tell a lot from someone's signature, but with most celebrities, all you can tell is that they are in a hurry. However, a few famous people take the time to make their autographs special and unique. Some add a fun doodle to their signatures, while others have beautiful penmanship.

Who is the most famous person with a notable autograph? Madonna sometimes makes an autograph extra special, by adding a lipstick kiss. Her actual signature is long and loopy, which is also fun for collectors. Kanye West is an artist in every sense of the word and even creates a fun doodle when signing his autograph.

Several celebrities just focus on their initials when signing autographs. Brad Pitt's autograph is simple, but effective. He makes sure that the "B" and the "P" are clear, but the rest is unidentifiable. Similarly, Joey Fatone balances the "J" in his first name with the "F" in his last to create an interesting autograph.

Which celebrity autograph do you think is the coolest? Vote up the most awesome celebrity signatures below.

The veteran actress with pipes for days dished about some of her favorite genre actresses to see on screen as part of the promotion for See No Evil 2, which pits her against a (supposedly dead) killer already in the morgue in a race for the lives of herself and her friends. 

Limited to just five actresses (four really, since she had clearly already made the list), the morgue worker with an iron will to stay off the steel slab was asked named four other actresses as long as she could give them in no particular order, leaving the final positions on this list of the top horror genre actresses up to the public so they can have a say in the overall rankings. 

See No Evil 2 premieres in theaters October 20th, 2014. See the trailer here.
