Friday list: The Rewatchables -- The movies we can view again and again

On Jen's list: 1994's 'Pulp Fiction. (Miramax) A couple of weeks ago, we focused a Friday List on what we called The Unwatchables: the movies, TV shows and Web videos we take pride in having skipped. This week, we hit the opposite end of the spectrum with The Rewatchables, a look at the movies we never tire of viewing again and again, and then one more time after that. Some people believe watching a film once is enough. Here at Celebritology, we do not understand these people. Some motion pictures are filled with so much rich dialogue, blood pressure-raising action and gut-busting comedy, there's no such thing as seeing them too many times. After the jump, read about our favorite rewatchable movies, then add your selections in the comments below....

Getting a piece of Marilyn Monroe

This X-ray of Marilyn Monroe's chest could be yours for approximately $1,200. (AP) Still have some money left in your bank account after buying that life-sized, "Children of the Corn"-reminiscent doll from Michael Jackson's estate last year? Then by all means, turn your attention to the upcoming sale of several items of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia set to hit the auction block in June. Scattered among the usual celeb detritus -- photo shoot outtakes, bank statements, clothing and crusty old half-used perfume bottles -- are some rather unusual offerings: X-rays of the star's chest and pelvis (expected to fetch $800 to $1,200 each), a couch on which Monroe supposedly unburdened herself to psychiatrist Ralph Greenson during the filming of "The Misfits" (also expected to fetch around $1,200) and a green-upholstered chair used during Monroe's final photo shoot before her death in 1962. No official word on why Monroe was X-rayed,...

You vote: The best decade of SNL

This salute to the '00s and the fact that SNL is celebrating its 35th year in existence got me thinking about an important pop-cultural question: which decade really stands as the best of "Saturday Night Live"?

No retouching? No problem for Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears

Simpson's unretouched cover shot. (Marie Claire) Let's call it Hollywood goes organic. While we've been busy paying attention to a newly-resculpted plastic fantastic Heidi Montag and snickering at the ever-growing ranks of Hollywood's Botox-ed babes, a trend has been quietly building among celebs who -- until recently -- wouldn't have allowed a camera in their general vicinity without an army of makeup artists and photo retouchers at the ready. Jessica Simpson, the singer turned reality star turned VH1 series host, appears on the cover of May's Marie Claire (and inside the mag) without makeup and, she swears, without any behind the scenes photo wizardry. And, this week, Britney Spears allegedly released before-and-after retouching versions of her latest Candie's ad campaign. What motivated Simpson to appear au naturel? She's been the target of much criticism -- for everything from her dippy reality TV appearances with ex-husband Nick Lachey to her...

Shaquille O'Neal wigs out

Okay, so we're a teensy bit late to this, but we would be utterly remiss in our duties if we did not pass along the following shocking -- SHOCKING, I tell you -- video of a wig-wearing Shaquille O'Neal lip-syncing his way through Rick James's "Fire and Desire." Hang in there at least until he rips off his shirt:...

'Lost' Dueling Analysis: 'Everybody Loves Hugo'

Building on last week's season high point, we've finally got some forward momentum going. Desmond has moved ahead with his mission, the candidates (save one Jin Kwon) have converged, island memories are increasingly leaking into our sideways world characters and we're moving closer to a confrontation between MIB and Widmore. Or MIB and the now long absent Jacob. Or all of the above.

Wait 'til they get a load of Hit-Girl

Even though "Kick-Ass" won't be widely released in American theaters until Friday, the 11-year-old assassin who sports a bob the color of grape Kool-Aid -- and is portrayed by Hit-Girl "It" Girl Chloë Moretz -- already has emerged as the most controversial and magnetic comic-book-movie icon since Heath Ledger reinvented the Joker.

The 'Lost' 5: Prepping for 'Everybody Loves Hugo'

"Happily Ever After," last week's Desmond-centric episode of "Lost," set fans a'chatter -- and a'Twitter -- to perhaps a greater degree than any other episode this season. Can this week's episode -- "Everybody Loves Hugo," which puts our beloved Hurley in the role of central character -- spark even more wild theorizing and endless analyzing? With only five more "Lost" episodes to follow after tonight's, I sure hope so. Without further ado, here are five issues to mull over before we get some fresh perspective on the Amazing Reyes. 1. Why can't MIB just leave the island? During the most recent "Lost" audio podcast, a reader wondered why MIB didn't just get on the sub and flee the island back in the '70s. "How is Jacob holding him there?" he asked. Carlton Cuse responded by noting that that's exactly the question the audience should be asking, while Damon Lindelof indicated...

Fashion statement: Naya Rivera's dotty topper

"Glee's" Naya Rivera ruins a perfectly serviceable strapless mini-dress with the addition of an umbrella-shaped tangle of black netting covered in flocked red dots perched jauntily -- almost haphazardly -- on the side of her otherwise pretty head. Why?

Weekend box office: 'Night' by a nose

As of this moment, it appears that "Date Night" was the No. 1 movie at the weekend box office. But after more official figures are released later today, that could change.
