It’s Thanksgiving Weekend in the United States, so Happy Thanksgiving to those who are south of the border. At this time of the year, there are plenty of films hitting the screens trying to make money from the long weekend. There’s the revenge action flick Faster starring Dwayne Johnson. Then Christina Aguilera and Cher collaborate in Burlesque. Disney is offering its own family fare Tangled starring Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore. I was going to kick off the ELO with something related to this movie, but then I came across Olivia Wilde’s latest photoshoot with Details. Might as well go with that since Tron Legacy will be hitting the screens very soon.
After the jump, Stephen King makes his top 10 flicks of the year already, Christopher Nolan explains Inception without really explaining it, David Letterman likes to hit on Natalie Portman and let’s all become asses! I mean Agents of Secret Stuff!
Fellow Chuck fans, show some support for our favourite Nerd Herder and check out Tangled in theatres! In the meantime, a fun interview with Zachary Levi to read. (NY Post)
It’s not the end of the year yet but Stephen King already revealed his top 10 films of 2010. Once again there are some questionable choices on the list, but at least he makes a good attempt at defending his film selections. But seriously? Jackass 3D? Really? (Slashfilm)

Now we all know that Natalie Portman is quite attractive and she does have the ability to drive most (if not all) men bonkers. David Letterman is definitely not immune, but given the age difference, it is somewhat freaky that he tries to hit on her everytime she goes on his show. (Movieline)
A recent Community episode took place entirely in the study room of the library. As the character Abed pointed out, it was a bottle episode. Since this topic was brought up, let’s take a look at 19 other great bottle episodes on other television shows. (AV Club)
Community star Donald Glover was publicly vying for the role of Peter Parker on Twitter but lost out to Andrew Garfield. It appears the two have decided to call a truce. (i09)
Community’s ratings aren’t exactly on fire right now and could seriously use a bump. Please tune in for their Christmas special on December 9th at 8 pm on NBC! Seriously, what will get you to tune in? Perhaps some claymation? (Entertainment Weekly)
Joss Whedon responds to the Buffy remake news with lots of sarcasm and humour. It’s a fun entertaining read. (E! Online)
The Buffy fans are preparing the wooden stakes as the Buffy reboot is underway. In the meantime, let’s meet the person who will be writing the new flick. I don’t know about you, but taking on this project is probably the worst career move ever. (LA Times)
Why do fan campaigns to get Whedon alum Nathan Fillion always tend to fail? Case and point, the latest campaign to get him as the lead role in the upcoming film adaptation of the video game Uncharted did not land him the gig as Mark Wahlberg was selected for the role. Such injustice! (Joy Stiq)
Another win for The Simpsons as it takes a nice shot at FOX News. (Entertainment Weekly)

Finally, Youtubers unite! The collaboration between Nigahiga (Ryan Higa) and Wong Fu Productions has resulted in the latest short film Agents of Secret Stuff. Think of it as a live-action version of Full Metal Panic: Fumoffu minus the crazy technology. This is such a big event, there was a screening held at a theatre prior to the release on Youtube. More on the premiere can be found here. (Examiner)
