It’s the holiday season and the new year is near! This will mark the last Entertainment Link-Off of 2011. It’s been a quiet week, so it’ll be fairly short. Fear not folks, lots more to come in 2012.

After the jump, even Marvel lawyers don’t support mutants, some minor updates on upcoming films, a look at the top pirated TV shows and movies, and let’s find out what makes a true friend.
