This week, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner reprise their beloved "Twilight" characters on screen one last time in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the final chapter in the young-adult series based on the books by Stephenie Meyer.
As we established in our list of the 25 Best Movies of 2012, it was a pretty great year at the multiplexes.
But in what you are about to read below, well, there is no "good."
Some of these actually didn't do too badly in the box office and one might incite some rage from a certain fan army (sorry guys, but our whole staff agreed!), but either way, we want to know what you think. Read up on our 10 clunkers of 2012 and hit up the comments section below with your two cents. Get More »
If you're like us, you love the holiday season, but kinda wish you could spend it in Dillon, Texas, with the Taylor family.
Actually, this year, you almost can. Coach himself, Kyle Chandler, stars in "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty," while Mrs. Coach Connie Britton graces the big screen in "The Fitzgerald Family Christmas." As for the young-uns, you've probably already caught Tyra Collette (Adrianne Palicki) in theaters in "Red Dawn" and might want to make a date to see Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford) in "In Our Nature" this month.
In fact, why wait to get a good look at them? We figured it was time to pay homage to the (incredibly attractive) cast of "Friday Night Lights" as they're about to see their names in lights for real. And, thus, we were inspired to create this gallery of the "Friday Night Lights" gang in movies, past, present and future. We urge you to click through with clear eyes and full hearts.
Making movie posters — or in industry speak, one sheeting — can be tricky business. Needless to say, sometimes certain cinematic nuances (e.g., the movie sucks) can be lost in the effort. As such, a look back on 2012's crop of flicks shows quite a few posters which told very little truth about the movies at hand.
Enter The Shiznet to set the record straight and display what should've really made it into the marquees this year.
Infusing some homegrown veracity into "Magic Mike," for instance, the evil Brit geniuses yielded a film more appropriately titled "Sausage Fest," the tagline for which is "Bursting at the seams with man ass." Break us off a piece of that. The truth will set your buns free!

With a tidy $22-million haul over the long Thanksgiving weekend, the "Red Dawn" remake inspired a lot of turkey-stuffed/tryptophan-drunk American citizens to salute that grand old flag of ours and prepare themselves to do what it takes to defend our great nation… namely, killing Asian people.
See, that last part was meant to be ironic, especially if you read our tirade about the producers' screwed-up decision to switch the villains' nationalities from Chinese to North Korean in post-production, but comedian Paul Scheer has posted a graphic of post-"Red Dawn" anti-Asian Twitter posts that never heard of irony.

Chris Hemsworth worked the rugged look in every possible way this year: outdoors guy, Norse god, huntsman and, now, homemade soldier. His rippling muscles and blue eyes alone prove there's something in the Aussie water.
This week he's trading in his mighty "Thor" hammer for an assault rifle in "Red Dawn," keeping America safe from invading communist forces.
Sure, Chris' younger brother Liam enjoyed some time in the spotlight this year with '"The Hunger Games," but between "Snow White and the Huntsman," "The Cabin in the Woods," "The Avengers" and now "Red Dawn," the elder Hemsworth is the only one we want to cuddle with out in the wilderness.
See for yourself with Chris' Hot People Looking Hot gallery. Trust us, you'll forget all about the threat of the North Korean army after going through these pics.
America can rest easy knowing that Adrianne Palicki is on the front lines of hotness with her stunning beauty.
After making football more interesting on "Friday Night Lights," the hottie from Ohio is now set to join Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson in keeping our country safe from invading Communist forces in "Red Dawn." She'll also be fighting for freedom as Lady Jaye in next spring's "G.I. Joe: Retaliation."
So ... where can we enlist?
Check out our collection of Adrianne looking hot in movies, on TV shows and on the red carpet, soldier. "Red Dawn" (finally) opens Nov. 21.
Full disclosure: We weren't sold on Josh Hutcherson when he was first cast as Peeta Mellark in "The Hunger Games." He was amazing in "The Kids Are All Right," so it wasn't his talent that was questioned. But could the dark-haired tween from "Zathura" really carry the blonde challenges of District 12?
Then we saw the official "Hunger Games" images and it was over.
And now, with his latest film, "Red Dawn," hitting theaters, we thought we'd take a minute to appreciate the hotness of Hutch. Check out our Hot People Looking Hot gallery of the Hutcherson on the red carpet and in his movies.
Team Peeta forever.
Adrianne Palicki is easily recognizable as Tyra Collette from the popular television show "Friday Night Lights," which ended its five-year run in 2011. Around the same time, the 29-year-old actress set the comic book community abuzz after nabbing the coveted lead in super-producer David E. Kelly's pilot for "Wonder Woman." Unfortunately, the show didn't get picked up, but Palicki had no problems making the jump to big-screen action hero, even scoring the role of Lady Jaye in the upcoming "G.I. Joe: Retaliation."
In her first film since the end of "FNL," the tall (she's 5-foot-11) hottie battles an enemy takeover in "Red Dawn," which hits theaters on Nov. 21. A tune-up on the 1984 film, the reboot also stars Chris Hemsorth, Josh Peck and Josh Hutcherson, swaps Russians for North Koreans, and proves cell phones can be valuable tools in warfare.
We spoke to Palicki about living up to the original "Red Dawn," her tendency towards action roles, and what her thoughts are on bringing the TV cast back together for a "Friday Night Lights" film. Get More »
It's your patriotic duty to enter this giveaway.
We're psyched for the new "Red Dawn." Russians have been replaced with North Koreans ("red" denotes communism in general, ya know — communism that needs to be shot and blown up!). Small-town Colorado has been replaced with small-town Washington. And Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Kerri Green and Lea Thompson have been replaced with Thor, Peeta Mellark, Lady Jaye and the hot Decepticon co-ed from "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Get More »
