    What Did We Miss? The Overlooked Movies Of 2010

    What's with all the attention for the movies that everyone saw? Spirits, Oscars, Critics Groups: doesn't it sometimes seem like the wrong emphasis? All this money is spent, all this noise is made, for what we have all already have seen. Okay, I get it. If you are reading this, you are not like regular people anyway. You probably go to the movies, and all the events of this weekend are actually for the folks that don't go to the movies. Is it ironic that people watch the Oscars, but don't want to pay to see movies (but that's something for later).

    Watch: The Franco Makes Meta Jokes About James Franco On 'General Hospital'

    We should've seen this one coming. Just a couple days before James Franco hosts the Oscars, the actor reprised his role as the murderous The Franco on "General Hospital" in a brief cameo today. Vulture captured the moment for eternity and who knew so much awesomeness could be packed into a clip that runs just about a minute and a half. The self-portraits! The eye rolling one liners referencing the Oscars and "127 Hours"! It's all there, it's all amazing and it's probably about 10 times more entertaining than watching that red carpet stuff on Sunday evening (but you know we'll be watching it anyway; check out our live blog on Sunday for all of...

    CNN Drops Parker, Keeps Spitzer. Smart Move.

    Whatever you think of Eliot Spitzer - and frankly I’d take smart, Clinton-Spitzer sex-challenged politicians over idiot politicians any day - he’s good on television. He’s an incisive, challenging interviewer; he’s politically opinionated but not bullying, and always listens to the other side.
