John Travolta's House Is A Functional Airport With 2 Runways For His Private Planes

John Travolta is a certified private pilot who owns five aircraft , so it's only fitting that the 60-year-old actor's Florida home has two runways that lead directly to his front door. "We designed the house for the jets and to have at our access the world at a moment's notice, and we succeeded at that," a bearded Travolta said during an interview Thursday on Australia's "Today."

Movies: Grimmer, stranger, true-life offerings for fall

What do striking miners in Margaret Thatcher-era Britain, persecuted journalists in Iran and Nicaragua, a brilliant code-breaker exposed as a homosexual, a brilliant physicist debilitated by Lou Gehrig's disease, a Newtown Square multimillionaire turned killer, a British romantic landscape artist in his sunset years, a reformed addict on a 1,100-mile trek, an Olympic-track-star prisoner of war, and a pair of 1950s kitschmongers with a penchant for saucer-eyed waifs have in common? They're all coming to theaters this fall: true-life tales of prejudice, cruelty, creativity, murder, marital disharmony, and survival against the odds.

Body Snatchers

Suffused with an overwhelming sense of dread and the director's signature psychosexual pyrotechnics, Ferrara's idiosyncratic reworking of Don Siegel's Cold War-era classic remains the most underappreciated of all the body-snatcher movies. The teenage heroine Marti moves to an Alabama military base when her father, an EPA agent , is dispatched to investigate the side effects of the army's mysterious experiments.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' offers action and commentary

This year's assortment of superhero movies has been a lively and thought-provoking bunch, and that tone was set early on by Marvel's pre-summer offering "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," a fully realized action-adventure that doubles as a commentary on the surveillance state. As was the case with "The First Avenger," Chris Evans makes a natural Captain America, even after his Cap's been transplanted to a modern world where S.H.I.E.L.D.'s efforts to stop evil have begun to approach the level of fascism.
