1.  Anybody who has ever watched Ocean’s 11, Fight Club and more recently, Moneyball will know that Brad Pitt really likes to eat onscreen.  Some feel that what started off as a cute quirk has now replaced character development. Check out this list of all the things Brad Pitt has ever eaten on film (it’s pretty long)!

2.  I wasn’t thrilled when Rod Hilton opened up the doors of The Editing Room for new authors.  But I was proved wrong when some of those authors turned out to be incredibly funny. Still, nothing can make your day quite like a Rod Hilton abridged script for The Artist.

3.  The Hunger Games blew away box office records with ease, but polarized the book fans. So what does it take to constitute a good adaptation of book?  Scott and Tasha from the AV Club give us their views.

4.  The knowledgeable Quentin Tarantino’s 2011 favourite films list is out (actually it’s been out for months, I just happened to notice it yesterday).  Quentin and I mostly agree on best films, but my faith in him was shaken when he included The Three Musketeers among the top 11.  Please tell me he’s screwing with us?

5.  After 17 long months, Mad Men is back on television with a gorgeous 2 hour long episode! Get back in the ’60s Madison Avenue frame of mind by playing this very cool Mad Men Youtube Game.
