Vulture has come up with a pretty nifty interactive list of Hollywood’s 100 Most “Valuable” Stars. The default is their ranking, but, if it butters your toast, you can fiddle with the settings to create your own list based on your personal values and priorities. Unfortunately, there’s no bangable category so, no matter how much I fiddled, I couldn’t make it match the Pajiba Ten. (Vulture)
I had no idea Seattle had its own Super Villain (with the bone-chilling name “Rex Velvet”). Well 75 cool points to you, Seattle, and 250 points to Rex himself who led one kid on a merry chase as part of the Make-A-Wish foundation. (Nerd Approved)
You know that character you despise on that AMC show about zombies? No not that one, the other one. Yeah, her. Well it turns out even the actress thinks the character should die. (WG)

I don’t mean to sound snobby at all, quite the contrary, but I think it’s safe to say that most (not all…not you) folks who watch a film attribute the “look” of it to the director and neglect the considerable contributions of the cinematographer. This fantastic piece on the retirement of Christopher Nolan’s collaborator Wally Pfister sets that record straight. (Atlantic)

Okay, friends, this is a troubling link. If you love Ralph Fiennes with all the fire in your crotch, I urge you to scroll down the page. If you don’t, or if you think your stalwart crotch love can survive the following images, then click away. The man can look however he wants, he’s still a fantastic performer. I just want you to brace yourself. (Celebitchy)
Finally, if you’re having a hard, disappointing or distressing day, I hope these fantastic images of fire-breathing will distract and soothe you. Now imagine the source of your frustration being enveloped in those flames. There, that’s better, ain’t it?
