10 Great Movies Which Could Be Equally Great Videogames

It used to be that movies that got games based around them mostly fell into two categories - action and adventure. A brief journey down the up-and-down history of movie-based games, including the now infamous E.T. on the Atari 2600 and fan favorite Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye, reveals that it was pretty easy to predict which movies would get the console treatment. Well, that was then.

9 Ladies Who Were Rejected By Playboy

One day after her 18th birthday, Courtney Stodden tweeted, “No to porn … yes to Playboy ;) xxx.” Only Playboy’s not making any offers according to TMZ.
