The 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2010

Seth Rogen fatigue is setting in, so we left The Green Hornet off the list. Ditto to the inevitable Nightmare on Elm Street remake, even though it landed Jackie Earle Haley to play Freddy Krueger.

Network TV has been dying for years, but in the 2008-2009 which ends this coming month, it finally croaked. If some of you don't care, well, no crap. Did you check out Better Off Ted the other night?

5 Things Fallout 3 Taught Me About Life

Bethesda Softworks' Fallout 3 is a really remarkable video game for lots of reasons, but above all, it's immersive -- you can be anyone you want, look any way you want, get a job, eat meals, listen to the radio, read, and even buy a house.
