• "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” hits theatres this Friday, and there's a lot of chatter surrounding the film -- including the usual Peeta vs. Gale debate.

    We caught up with fans at the Canadian premiere of "Catching Fire" on Tuesday night in Toronto to see what they had to say. While many fans we talked to are on Team Peeta -- some fans make a good case for Team Gale, as well.  We put the two guys head to head to see who comes out on top.

    Note: the following includes spoilers!

    1. Character values. Of all things to judge people on, we think this might be the most important. What does a person believe in and how far will he go to preserve his values?

    Peeta: In “The Hunger Games” (novel), before he and Katniss are sent to the arena, he says, “I want to die as myself… I don’t want them to change me in there. Turn me into some kind of monster that I’m not.” At first, Katniss didn’t quite understand what he meant, but eventually we see that Peeta stays true to his word. He may have manipulated

  • It’s an exciting time for Broadway! Last week, it was announced that Alanis Morisette’s 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill” will be turned into a musical – and that’s not all. Just days later, we found out that the film “The Princess Bride” will also hit the stage.

    We took to the streets to find out what album or movie Canadians would most like to see get a musical makeover. From films like “Goodfellas” and “The Shawshank Redemption” to albums by Metallica, Jamiroquai (and of course, “Abbey Road” by the Beatles), it seems like everyone can imagine their favourite pieces of pop culture on Broadway.

    So, we want to know: What movie, album or artist would you like to see as a musical? Would you go for something classic, like a Marvin Gaye show, or something a little different – like “Detroit Rock City”?

  • “Thor: The Dark World” hits theatres on Friday, Nov. 8 – and it's got us thinking about what superpowers we would like to have.

    We hit the streets and asked Canadians what superpower they would most like to have – and it turns out, most people want to soar high above the sky  just like Superman.

    “Flying!,” said one person we chatted with. “Because that would be the coolest thing in the world.”

    Other popular answers included mind control, the ability to read minds,invisibility and time travel.

    But, despite their popularity – we did notice some logistical problems with some of these superpowers. Check out the video for more.

  • “Homeland”’s Dana Brody has been labelled one of television's most hated characters – but she’s far from the only character that people can’t seem to stand.

    We recently asked Canadians which fictitious TV character they find most annoying.

  • Halloween is just around the corner – and many of us are already busy planning our costumes. This year has been all about Miley Cyrus –from her risqué VMA performance to her spat with Sinead O’Connor to her comments about pretty much everything. So it’s easy to see why dressing up as Miley could be the most popular celebrity-inspired costume of the year. However, when we took to the streets this week, we discovered that wasn’t quite the case – most of the people we polled think that Walter White from “Breaking Bad” will be an even more popular costume choice.

    What do you think will be the most popular costume this Halloween? Will Walter White reign supreme? Or will Miley and her dancing bears prevail? Or do you think something completely different will emerge as this year’s top costume?Let us know in the comments below.

    Still stumped for your celebrity-inspired costume? We've got suggestions below.

  • It's been less than a week since "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam bid farewell to the role of Christian Grey -- but rumours about his replacement are already flying.

     And with just weeks left before filming is slated to start, there's not a lot of time to make the decision.

    While Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer's names have been tossed around, it looks like they won't be stepping into the Red Room of Pain anytime soon.  But what about Alexander Skarsgard? Jamie Dornan? Alex Pettyfer? The possibilities are (almost) endless.

    Even though it’s been three years since she left“Grey’s Anatomy,” Katherine Heigl is still getting flack. Earlier this week, her former “Grey’s” co-star Ellen Pompeo told the New York Post that things were “spinning out of control” and Heigl “should not have renewed her contract.”

    The role that garnered her as a household name also burdened her with a bad reputation. Even insiders on the sets of her movies claim she was difficult to work with.

    Now that Heigl and NBC executives are working on a new show that will cast her as a CIA agent, does she still deserve all of this criticism? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

    Break-ups, make-ups, and surprise engagements are common news items in the world of celebrities, but should we normal folk bite our tongues and stop our judgements?

    After just three months of dating, "The Big Bang Theory's" leading lady Kaley Cuoco has announced her engagement to Ryan Sweeting -- a shock considering it was just a little while ago that she was dating Mr. Henry "Man of Steel" Cavill.

    But Cuoco isn't the only star to face the judgment of critics and fans for their recent romantic decisions. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom also announced a whirlwind engagement in 2009, Rihanna went through another controversial relationship with Chris Brown, and Michelle Rodriguez admitted she has gone both ways.

    So when the news breaks that a star is embracing a new romance, do you scream, "What are they thinking?!" Or do you just roll your eyes and think, "So what?" Let us know what you think in the comments below.

  • Remember when Renée Zellweger gained almost 30 pounds for "Bridget Jones’s Diary" – then lost it – and then regained it again for the sequel?

    Casting directors have their hands full with picking someone who can transform to fit a certain role. Often there’s special effects (Robert Pattinson’s sparkling skin in "Twilight") or temporary transformations through makeup and/or hair extensions (like, oh say, all the characters in "Lord of The Rings").

    But on the other hand, there are dedicated stars that go the extra mile to become one with their characters.
