When Netflix adds, it must also delete.

A number of titles are due to expire at the end of the year, which means the its the end for some '80s and '90s favorites ("Batman," Beverly Hills Cop," "Happy Gilmore," "Spaceballs"), a handful of Oscar winners ("Gladiator," "Braveheart," "Kramer vs. Kramer"), and a few modern classics ("The Usual Suspects," "Love Actually," "The Breakfast Club").

Best Movie Ever?: "Halloween"

Unless I'm dressed as wisecracking dognapper Debi Mazar in Beethoven's 2nd, I find Halloween kind of a drag. It requires too much forethought and Cvs shopping, and I'm at the age when I've probably had too many fun-size Snickers and popcorn orbs for a lifetime. But one spooky tradition of mine will never die, just like Michael Myers himself: I always watch Halloween on October 31, and not just because it's one of the three scariest movies I've seen (including Scream and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), but because it actually captures the essence of the holiday itself: a drab, suburban, hokey affair with some seriously scary undertones. The day is stupid and cheesy, but it also feels like the wrong night to babysit. Particularly if you're a naughty babysitter who seems like an awful friend.

As a thriller, Halloween is slower than what we're used to now, but that just cements its towering legacy further.

5 Fabulous, Oft-Forgotten '90s Lady Villains Who Make Great Halloween Costumes

I know the horrors of gay Halloween. You're burdened with the potential to impress everyone, and since I consider the holiday a chance to exhibit wit and superiority, you're basically obligated to design a costume that says "grandeur." Well, look no further: Nothing delights a crowd like '90s nostalgia, and since nothing delights me more than unfeeling women of '90s TV and movies, I've decided to let you in on a secret. These are the best five options for Halloween costumes -- If you have the nerve and resourcefulness to pull it off. Let's take a hard look at some bad-ass women in order to save this holiday from muscle twinks and their un-creative Ryan Lochte "costumes."

Scorpina is one of the most high-fashion arachnid-themed villains of the '90s. As the distaff member of Rita Repulsa's crew of goons, she

'Dumb And Dumber To' Confirmed: Other Creative '2's

'Dumb And Dumber To' Confirmed: Other Creative '2's
Like you had any doubt that the Farrelly brothers could come up with something cleverer than "Dumb and Dumberer"?

"Dumb and Dumber To" is not just a working title -- it's the official one. The officially endorsed sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" already has its original directors and cast on board, and now is close to having a script as well. The Farrellys seem really excited about the project, and we're really excited that "Dumb and Dumber To" is actually what this flick is going to be called.

"You also might be interested to know that we are almost done with the Dumb and Dumber To (sic) script," Peter and Bobby Farrelly tweeted from their joint Twitter account. "I think you're going to like it."

These two aren't the only directors to come up with clever ways to get around the boring "2." After the jump we've listed off some of

Ashley Hamilton is Villainous Firepower in Iron Man 3

Ashley Hamilton (Beethoven's 2nd, "Dancing With the Stars"), the son of George Hamilton and a personal friend of Robert Downey Jr, is in talks to join the cast of "Iron Man 3" as the villainous Firepower. The role is considered small. The character seems like a good fit, considering all the rumors. Firepower is an experimental government armored suit piloted by Jack Taggert (Hamilton). At one point, he was enlisted by the Mandarin and Zeke Stane to destroy Tony Stark. And Zeke Stane is the son of Obadiah Stane, Jeff Bridges' character in the first film. Meanwhile, "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau updated his Twitter account with a photo showing that he'll return to play Happy Hogan, despite the fact that Shane Black is directing the third installment. "Iron Man 3" stars filming this months in North Carolina and will hit theaters on May 3rd, 2013. Favreau's Photo:

John Hughes Dies - His Video Game Legacy

A sad and surprising loss today, as acclaimed writer/director/producer John Hughes passed away from a heart attack.

One doesn't immediately think about Hughes' connection to video games, but there were a few games over the years, based on his classic films.

Home Alone and Home Alone 2

Hughes wrote and produced the "Home Alone" films, and there were video games based on the first two. They're pretty mediocre side scrolling action games, but they do feature strange, pixelated stills from the movies, which I guess is worth something.

Beethoven's 2nd

Based on characters created by Hughes, "Beethoven's 2nd" puts you in control of the massive pup as he journeys about a city trying to find his lost puppies.


Released in 1993, "Dennis" was based on the "Dennis the Menace" movie that Hughes wrote and produced. Another side-scrolling platformer which featured Dennis basically terrorizing Mr. Wilson. Pretty true to the franchise,
