So, you think it's all fun and games being a movie star and filming the biggest movie of the year? Tell that to Jennifer Lawrence, the star of the 'Hunger Games' franchise who, while filming one of the 'Catching Fire' Cornucopia scenes, had a powerful water jet blast her right in the ear that left her partially deaf. All for your entertainment! That's just one of the little known bits of trivia packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on the biggest film of 2013, 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'.
As we struggle to make sense of the death of Robin Williams, we've spent some time here remembering him as a person and his work. We're obviously just a few of the many, many people Robin Williams touched during his lifetime. Among them are the many people he worked with over the years, from his days as a guest star on 'Happy Days' to his upcoming role in 'Night at the Museum 3.' Below are some thoughts, prayers and remembrances from friends and family who had the pleasure of knowing him both on- and off-screen.
Robin Williams' death is shocking and heartbreaking and touches us in a way usually reserved for close friends. Maybe that's because we're of a generation that grew up on Robin Williams. He's been making us laugh and cheering us up since we were kids; like a big-screen father figure. That he died suffering from severe depression, makes the news all the more tragic. As director Garry Marshall, who first cast Williams in 'Happy Days' and later 'Mork and Mindy,' said today, "He could make everybody happy but himself."
He made everyone happy and in that spirit, we'd like to celebrate his work, and we asked a few of our writers to look back at their favorite moments of his career.

"Let It Go" isn't just a song from a Disney movie - it's a flat-out cultural phenomenon. The Oscar-winning 'Frozen' song has had everyone singing along (in the car, in the shower, in the kitchen) for months, but now even the professionals are getting into the act. Over the weekend, rock superstars Pearl Jam performed in Milan, Italy and busted out their rendition of the new Disney classic.
The 2014 Oscars were loooong. In fact, we can't be entirely sure that they're not still going on somewhere. So, you can't be blamed if you took a pee break, got up to get some snacks and/or dozed off and missed something. It's OK, we got your back. In case you missed anything, we have a full list of all the Oscar winners, plus this quick handy wrap-up of all the other fun moments you may have missed.
Harold Ramis, the star of 'Ghostbusters,' writer of 'Animal House' and director of 'Caddyshack' and 'Groundhog Day,' has died at the age of 69 in Chicago. Ramis had been suffering from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis and had been in declining health since 2010.
The 2014 Golden Globes nominations are in and we already can’t wait for the awards ceremony! While the Oscars ceremony has Ellen DeGeneres hosting, comedic duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are returning to host the Globes, which is awesome if you saw the hilarious job they did last year. But enough of that, let’s get down to the list of nominees!
Last week, Batkid took San Francisco (and the internet) by storm, as tens of thousands of volunteers worked together with the Make-a-Wish foundation to help fulfill the dream of Miles, a 5-year-old boy suffering from leukemia. Miles loves Batman so the entire town transformed into Gotham City and let Miles (as Batkid) help Batman defeat the Riddler and save the day. He's the hero we deserve and the hero we need right now, so it's only fitting Batkid should get his own movie poster.
