Christmas is a time for television networks to trot out their most cloying, ill-conceived holiday-themed specials. Here are the worst of the worst. (Topless Robot)
For a non-holiday holiday movie guide, here are six non-holiday films that just happen to be set during Christmas. (PW)
“Paris Hilton is dumb” jokes are about as easy as “Yo Momma So Fat” jokes, but no really — Paris Hilton is so dumb she believed in Santa Claus until she was like 16. (Litelysated)
Roger Ebert put together his top ten films of 2009 list, but because he’s complicated he actually made it two lists, the top ten mainstream and the top ten indie films. (Chicago Sun Times)
Here’s a handful of films that prove once and for all that Alec Baldwin is God. Pretty impressive, considering “30 Rock” isn’t even eligible. (Cinematical)
I guess it’s a little late for catalog holiday shopping, but here’s some gift ideas compliments of the Harriet Carter catalog. (IBBB)
And here’s a gift guide for the ridiculously pampered pooch on your list. Oh, kidding. No one is going to buy this shit for their dog. (mental floss)
A lot of celebrities died this year. (Knock on wood, since the year has another week left in it.) At any rate, here’s a fitting tribute to all the celebrities who died by bringing them back as zombies for one last hurrah. (Holy Taco)
Apparently the big naming trend for babies born in 2009 was to name them after stupid celebrities or even stupider pop culture references. Well at least my niece might be the only “Penelope” her age, then. (Agent Bedhead)
So I guess Jena Malone did a nude scene in The Messenger, and well, I guess this is my early Christmas gift to all you pre-verts out there. (Film Drunk)
I gave up on “Big Love” somewhere in like the second or third season, because frankly I thought the show was more interesting when they focused on the dynamic of a polygamist family. I mean, they’re polygamists, what more do you need? Anyway, I don’t know, I guess the trailer for the fourth season looks OK. (Warming Glow)
Gwyneth Paltrow probably broke the law by GOOP’ing about her almost definitely 100% compensated lavish trip to Marrakesh under the new FTC blogger guidelines. Ha ha ha ha ha ha. *ahem* Ha ha. (Celebitchy)
Here’s a literal music video translation of Hall & Oates “Jingle Bell Rock.” Oh but wait. The Shyamalan Twist is that after you hear the song from Hall’s perspective, you get to hear Oates.
