    If you run a movie site that seeks to service readers --and build traffic--then you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know what works. Certain names, stars, projects have heat. When you write about James Cameron, David Fincher, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, franchises like Avatar, Inception, Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, Bourne, Twilight or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish or American), or hot films like The Social Network (or Mark Zuckerberg), they will come. And despite David Poland's sloppy rant about headlines with numbers in them, guess what? They pull more readers: folks love races, contests, drama, debates, polls, controversy...

    Has Sandra Bullock Signed On For 'Gravity?' Actress Also Reteaming With 'The Proposal' Director

    In recent years, the winners of the Best Actress award at the Oscars have tended to celebrate their victories by taking rather ill-advised paycheck jobs which threatened to derail their careers for some time.
