Director Zack Snyder usually delivers comic book-based action, most memorably in the testosterone-fueled box office hit "300."

Anne Rice leaves Christianity

Legendary author Anne Rice has announced that she’s quitting Christianity.

The “Interview with a Vampire” author, who wrote a book about her spirituality titled "Called Out of Darkness: A Spiritual Confession" in 2008, said Wednesday that she refuses to be “anti-gay,” “anti-feminist," “anti-science” and “anti-Democrat.”

Rice wrote, “For those who care, and I understand if you don't: Today I quit being a Christian ... It's simply impossible for me to ‘belong’ to this quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous group. For ten years, I've tried. I've failed. I'm an outsider. My conscience will allow nothing else.”

'SYTYCD' comes into the home stretch

Thursday's results show on "So You Think You Can Dance" kicked off - after an "Alice in Wonderland"-inspired group routine by Mia Michaels, one of the season's best - with the announcement that Lauren is okay to continue dancing in the competition, allowing us to breathe a collective sigh of relief. I don't know how many more of these injuries I can take.

As expected, Billy and Jose ended up in the bottom three. You could see it in Jose's face that he knew he was leaving the show, not to mention the fact that Nigel more or less said it on Wednesday night.
