Little known fact: I collect Hallmark Ornaments. It’s a very expensive hobby my mother got me into when I was still in elementary school. Every July, she and I would go to the store on the day that Hallmark first released their ornaments for that year and we’d buy all the cool ones. This was a tradition that probably would have faded away as I grew older if Hallmark didn’t start making ornaments out of awesome licenses like Star Wars and Star Trek. Now, they’re in bed with almost everyone making ornaments of comic book characters, Disney films, TV shows, holiday classics like A Christmas Story and even new movies like The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in addition to all the traditional stuff too. After the jump, check out a huge gallery of the 2011 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments that are inspired by pop culture properties. Read More »

PARKS AND RECREATION (SEASON 2)
My write-up of the first season of Parks and Recreation amounted to little more than a prediction that the show would hit its stride in Season 2. Lo and behold, that’s exactly what happened. Following a nearly identical pattern to The Office, Parks and Rec struggled through a forgettable introductory 6-episode season that mainly served to set up the characters and find the show’s rhythm. I see it as the trial run to the expanded 24-episode second season, which utilizes its engaging cast to much greater comedic effect. If you gave up on it after the first season, I highly recommend giving it another chance.
Available on Blu-ray? No.
Notable Extras: Over two and half hours of deleted scenes, six audio commentaries, a blooper reel, five webisodes, “Mouse Rat Rocks the Wrap Party”, “?uestlove on: Parks”, Theme Song performed by Gabby Moreno, and Winter Games promos.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The full trailer for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse debuted on today Oprah, and if her stamp of approval isn’t enough to get you excited about the third film in the Twilight series, I don’t know what is.
OK, enough sarcasm, but I will say this: perhaps the trailer has deliberately gone extra heavy on a promise of action, but this looks like the Twilight movie with the most running so far. Is that worth anything? Check it out after the break and find out. Read More »
It’s been a hell of a day for rumors and doom and gloom reports. There is word that Sony isn’t happy with The Green Hornet, and that Warner Bros. is rather down on The Losers (about which I’ve heard good things) and Jonah Hex, which has led to a disinterest in pursuing Lobo. (According to Anne Thompson, Sony called the Green Hornet report ‘complete garbage’ and ‘unfounded.’)
Then there was a report that said Summit was about to embark on reshoots for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Not a serious deal, because reshoots happen all the time and are often planned into the schedule and budget. But in this case, the rumor said that Eclipse director David Slade would not be involved, and that Summit is reaching out to prior Twilight directors Catherine Hardwicke and Chris Weitz to handle the reshoot.
So, as we’ve asked before: is this bullshit or not? According to Summit, the reports of someone other than Slade directing are definitely bullshit. Read More »
