Actress and Dame Helen Mirren has never been afraid of a challenge. 'The Roaring Girl' on stage with London's Royal Shakespeare Company? Done that. 'DCI Jane Tennison' in British television's hit series 'Prime Suspect,' all dark looks and savage crimes? Done that. A middle-aged housewife posing nude for a pin-up calendar in 'Calendar Girls'? Done that too. This up-for-anything attitude is what makes her such a perfect choice for a cornucopia of calculating queens who have stalked across movie and television screens for the last 25 years.

In 1939, David O. Selznick kicked off the biggest beauty pageant since Esther caught the eye of King Ahasuerus when the director announced a nationwide search for an actress to play the coveted role of Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind." But bigger and better even than that fabled film search is the longest running beauty contest in movie history which began in 1962. Who would be the new James Bond? Last year's competition was for the lead in "Casino Royale" ? to be released this November ?

If you liked “Casino Royale” you’re going to love “Quantum of Solace.” Forget the weird title taken from an Ian Fleming short story. All you need to know is that Quantum is an international cabal of evil-doer’s much in the tradition of Smersh and Spectre. Its purpose is sinister and its immediate intent is to corner the market on that most precious of all terrestrial products, water. This politically correct plot point is a nod to global warming and the multiple shots of infinite vistas of dry, throat-choking sand drive home the message.

Teen Movie Review By Charly Shelton "Home on the Range" is the story of a group of cows trying to save their farm from the auction block, and accepting a newcomer cow. This movie isn't exactly "where the deer and the antelope play"; more like "where the cows, horses, buffalo, jackrabbit and yodelers play." Filled with hilarity, even for teens and adults, this is a great movie for a family to see together. Roseanne Barr provides the voice of "Maggie," the new cow, a smart-mouthed character that makes the other animals on the farm realize they have more power than they thought.
