Well, folks, 2011 is officially in the can, and surprisingly it wasn't such a horrendous year. It was definitely better than 2010, which was a huge step up from the putrid 2009. We laughed, we applauded, we were left dumbstruck, and of course we were infuriated. Read on for our cheers and jeers!
Now, with a fresh movie-watching start before us, we're taking our usual yearly look back at the good, the bad, the Wtf, and everything in between.
And don't be lazy by just reading along! Get off of your asses and give us your lists in the comments section below. We wanna hear from you if only to compare notes. Lots and lots of notes.
Speaking of notes, the most common complaint we've heard over the years is that we don't have one definitive list representing Dread Central as a whole so for 2011 we dropped everyone's choices in the blender, hit puree, »

It’s time to throw another peanut butter and banana sandwich on the barbie as it has been revealed that Australian treasure Eric Bana will be portraying skinny then fat then dead Elvis Presley in an upcoming film about the singer’s life. I believe you folks call it a “biopic.” The film is said to document a visit Elvis paid to the White House when Nixon was president. Notably, it’s to be directed by Cary “As You Wish” Elwes, who made waves in my childhood as the hot neighbor in The Crush. (Alicia Silverstone Making Lemonade = My Halloween Costume every year.) Yes, Elwes directing Elvis. It is a confusing day in Eastern Europe. Now while I love Eric Bana (I funnel his sex scenes in Munich into a Kodak digital frame and play it on a loop in the office) it is a liiiitle hard for me to »

In the latest news for TV's Wonder Woman comes a report that Cary Elwes will be joining the cast. Elwes, best known as Westley from The Princess Bride (at least in this house!) will be joining the cast as the CEO of Dianna Prince's company, Themyscria Industries. According to Entertainment Weekly, he may be in line to be Prince's love interest as well.
Elwes has a long history of offbeat roles, covering many different aspects of cinema. He has hit comedy (The Princess Bride, Hot Shots!, Liar Liar), thriller (The Crush, Kiss The Girls), horror (Dracula, Saw) and even animation - starring as George Harrison in the 3D animated Yellow Submarine, due out next year. For such a versatile actor, he has thus far resisted a recurring role on TV, at least since 2001 when he appeared on several episodes of The X-Files. And let us not forget, as stated in »
