    'Greed is good': Oliver Stone explains origin and relevance of classic 'Wall Street' line 30 years later

    Michael Douglas never actually says the line “greed is good” in Wall Street, the seminal stockbroking drama that Oliver Stone deposited in theaters 30 years ago this December. It’s one of those infamous, constantly misquoted movie lines, up there with “Play it again, Sam” (it’s “Play it, Sam”) and “If you build it, they will come” (“If you build it, he will come”).

    'My Cousin Vinny' Turns 25: How Marisa Tomei's Character Was Almost Cut From the Movie

    Anyone who’s seen My Cousin Vinny, which opened 25 years ago, on March 13, 1992, can probably quote at least one of Marisa Tomei’s Brooklyn-accented lines, whether it’s her biological clock “ticking like this” or her reaction to arriving in small-town Alabama. (“I bet the Chinese food here is terrible.”) As Mona Lisa Vito, the auto mechanic fiancée of Joe Pesci’s title character, Tomei walked away with every single one of her scenes — and eventually, the film’s only Academy Award (for Best Supporting Actress).

    'Wayne's World' Red Carpet Flashback! Photos From the L.A. and London Premieres in 1992

    It’s been 25 years since Mike Myers and Dana Carvey brought their hit Saturday Night Live characters Wayne and Garth to the big screen. Wayne’s World opened in the U.S. on Valentine’s Day in 1992. Here’s a look back at some excellent stars who attended the Los Angeles and London premieres. Read more:

    'Wayne's World' Turns 25: Director Penelope Spheeris on 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' 'Foxy Lady,' and Why Wayne and Garth Still Party On

    In February 1992, when Wayne’s World hit theaters, George Bush was President, Guns N’ Roses was all the rage, and cell phones were as big as shoeboxes. It was a different time. And yet, 25 years later, the comedy starring Saturday Night Live alum Mike Myers and Dana Carvey as two rock-loving, mullet-wearing, basement-dwelling buds still stands up. (Uh, that’s what she said.)

    'Jerry Maguire' Star Jonathan Lipnicki Admits It's Been a 'Rough Transition' From Child Stardom to Adult Career

    After becoming one of the most popular child actors at the turn of the century thanks to his beloved role as the precocious Ray in Jerry Maguire (1996) and subsequent gigs in films like Stuart Little (1999), The Little Vampire (2000), and Like Mike (2002), Jonathan Lipnicki peeled back from Hollywood. Lipnicki, now 26, enjoyed his teen years in Agoura Hills, a small city about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, but he admits it has been tough to crack back into the industry. “Most careers, you have 20 years of experience, and it’s a good thing,” Lipnicki told us when he stopped by Yahoo studios to promote the 20th anniversary Blu-ray release of Jerry Maguire.

    ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ Turns 15: How the Blockbuster ‘Lord of the Rings’ Series Almost Didn’t Happen

    While the movie world’s attention has been on Star Wars in the past week, another huge fantasy franchise is celebrating a major milestone: Dec. 19 marks 15 years since the release of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the first part of the multi-Oscar-winning, blockbuster adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s seminal fantasy book. This is the story of how The Lord of the Rings nearly didn’t happen.

    What to Stream: 'The Real Rocky' Looks at Life of Sylvester Stallone's Inspiration–Turned–Foe Chuck Wepner

    The 2011 documentary The Real Rocky (now on iTunes) is an excellent primer on the fighter and his battle with Rocky’s writer-star Sylvester Stallone. Directed by Jeff Feuerzeig (who’s also behind this year’s excellent doc Author: The JT LeRoy Story), the film looks at the life and career of Wepner, the Bayonne, New Jersey, boxer Stallone often referenced when talking about the creation of his most iconic character, Rocky Balboa. Stallone later said that the fight became a loose inspiration for the Rocky screenplay, Stallone’s tale of a working-class Philly brawler who gets a title shot against the charismatic champion Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers).

    Not every blockbuster movie makes a lasting impact. Twenty years ago, films like Twister, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Ransom, and Eraser were all mammoth hits, among the biggest movies of 1996. But you hear few people clamoring for reboots, remakes, or sequels of those movies today.

    Summer of '86: 'She's Gotta Have It' Showed Spike Lee Definitely Had It

    Technically, the first film Spike Lee directed was his head-turning, $11,000 student effort, Joe’s Bed-Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads. But the movie most people consider to be the first official “Spike Lee Joint” is She’s Gotta Have It, his breakthrough, sex-laced comedy that will celebrate its 30th anniversary this August. She’s Gotta Have It established several Lee trademarks, and its biting satire and sociological pot-stirring laid the foundation for the filmmaker’s entire career, including classics like Do the Right Thing (1989), Malcolm X (1992), and The 25th Hour (2002).

    'Fargo' Turns 20: How North Dakotans Felt About the Film's Fun-Poking Accents

    One of the great ironies of Fargo, the Coen brothers’ bloody black comedy that turned 20 this week, is that most of the movie takes place not in the titular North Dakotan city but in the directors’ home state of Minnesota. North Dakotans — like Minnesotans and Wisconsinites — may endure cold winter climates, but they’re famously warmhearted and friendly people.

    'Pretty in Pink' Returning to Theaters, Teases Look at 'Duckie Love' Ending

    Pretty Pink adds 30 candles to its birthday cake in 2016, and the ‘80s teen classic will celebrate by returning to theaters for select screenings on Valentine’s Day. If you’re a true Pink fan (a pinky?), you know all about the original ending, which had our lovable ginger from the other-side-of-the-tracks Andie Walsh (Molly Ringwald) choose her flamboyant friend Duckie (Jon Cryer) over rich high-school dreamboat Blane (Andrew McCarthy) during the film’s climactic prom scene. As the story goes, that original finale played so poorly with test audiences that director Howard Deutch and writer John Hughes were forced to give the movie its more traditional storybook ending that paired Andie with Blane.

    'Mermaids' Flashback! Watch Hilarious, Young Christina Ricci, Winona Ryder, and Cher

    It’s been 25 years since Mermaids swam into theaters. The fish-out-of-water romantic dramedy starred Cher as a 1960s-era single mother of two daughters, played by Winona Ryder and a very young Christina Ricci in her first film role. Ricci was just 9 when she appeared on the Regis and Kathie Lee Show in 1990 to plug Mermaids.

    On 20th Anniversary of 'Heat,' Henry Rollins Recalls Getting Punched in the Face by Al Pacino

    This week marks the 20-year anniversary of Michael Mann’s Los Angeles-set bank heist thriller Heat, starring Al Pacino as a hardnosed LAPD cop on the hunt for Robert De Niro, who plays a career criminal. The ensemble film also features Val Kilmer and Tom Sizemore in the bank-robbing crew, Amy Brenneman as De Niro’s love interest, Jon Voight, Ashley Judd, Dennis Haysbert, a young Natalie Portman, Danny Trejo, William Fichtner as a double-crossing money launderer — and Henry Rollins as his henchman. What fans didn’t know when it came out in 1995 was that the working relationship between the film’s two iconic leading men was strained, Rollins revealed to Yahoo Movies during a recent interview.

    Why 'Jacob's Ladder' Remains One of the Creepiest New York Stories Ever

    I first watched Jacob’s Ladder on VHS in 1991. We weren’t very religious, so biblical connotations aside, a movie titled Jacob’s Ladder sounds like a kids adventure about some precocious twerp who discovers a magical climbing device that takes him up to the clouds where he’ll talk to fairies and ride oversized hamsters. I was already kind of afraid of New York City subways, what with the muggers and the rats and the vagrants and The Baseball Furies from The Warriors. Directed by Adrian Lyne, who has always been better known for sexy movies (9 ½ Weeks, Fatal Attraction, Unfaithful) than scary ones (though some of those meet in the middle), Jacob’s Ladder was barely a success when it was first released in 1990.
