It’s only October but apparently “best of 2010” lists are starting to surface already. Mashable recently unveiled their top 10 list of memorable viral videos in anticipation of their end of the year Mashable Awards. While some of the clips are more of the home movie variety (I still think the “Double Rainbow” vid is kind of creepy and embarrassing) there is some real creativity and effort to be found in others. We especially love the video for OK Go’s “ This Too Shall Pass.” It’s cute but not cloying, DIY, low-tech (save for the gorgeous HD Steadycam work) mise-en-scene is both theatrical and intimate.

In the brand new SHREK FOREVER AFTER, an ill-advised pact with a conniving Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn) turns reality upside-down for everyone's favorite Scottish-accented ogre (Mike Myers). Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) no longer loves him, Donkey (Eddie Murphy) is downright terrified of him (and still annoying), and everyone in the kingdom of Far Far Away wants his head on a pike.
But, by far, the most upsetting inversion is that of the formerly dashing lothario, Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) -- now a morbidly obese, singularly unmotivated housecat. When fantasy's ultimate swashbuckler can no longer buckle his swash, you know things are bad. (We can think of two reasons for so bloated a feline; for the sake of propriety, we'll go with an overindulgence in Tender Vittles.)
Puss isn't the first to have his downhill slide observed by the merciless eye of the camera. In fact, the list of characters who've undergone unfortunate cinematic transformations is considerable. Take a look at these 10 particularly distressing cases, and see if it doesn't inspire you to reactivate your New Year's resolutions:

William Shakespeare, now there was a guy who could put pen to paper. So powerful was his Romeo and Juliet that the heartbroken of today still write to Juliet in her home town of Verona, spilling their (real, living) souls out to that most famous of all (fictional, dead) lovers. That could be sad if you're, like, a balding, 53-year-old male composing a missive in your mother's basement while cuddling your 1/4-scale, highly detailed model of Catwoman. However, if you happen to be played by Vanessa Redgrave and your letter is retrieved by Amanda Seyfried, who then takes it upon herself to help you reconnect with your lost love, well, friend, such is the stuff of true romance — and Letters to Juliet.
Hollywood just loves messing around with Shakespeare, sometimes to such extremes that even learned scholars (and, trust us, we're not lumping ourselves in with that group) can barely recognize the source material. Ready to see how 400-year-old texts can be goosed to meet the entertainment needs of a contemporary audience? Check out our list:

Wow, Mr. Stark, you're such an innovator. Wounded and held hostage (with a makeshift electromagnet stuck in your chest), you take a couple of sardine cans and a used vacuum cleaner and build battle armor to get out of your predicament. A couple of revisions later, and you're now Iron Man, a metal hero the likes of which humanity has never seen.
Problem is, you ain't so original. In fact, the world is so overrun with shiny, clanking people that we had no problem working up a list of 10 others who have opted for the alloy life. Better equip your elbows with a set of battering rams, Stark. It's getting kinda crowded around here:

In the high-octane THE LOSERS, CIA black-ops set out to avenge their betrayal at the hands of a mysterious gent known only as Max. Good thing they work for the government. If the movies have taught us anything, it's that federal jobs come with comprehensive training in the proper handling of guns, bombs, and grappling hooks — not to mention tutorials in surviving high-speed car chases and unscheduled plunges from cargo planes (ideally without a parachute).
Or do they? Not everybody has room in their lives for Mexican standoffs and outrunning giant fireballs. (Some of us get winded just thinking about such stuff.) If you're looking to fulfill your civic duty while still getting the crusts cut off your sandwiches, never fear — turns out there are a number of government posts ideally suited to more delicate dispositions. If that's you, sit back in your well-lit room, adjust your lumbar pillow, and check out the ReelzChannel list of career opportunities for the less resilient:

Korean director Joon-ho Bong may have created the ultimate image of matriarchal generosity for his new movie, MOTHER. Determined to prove her mentally challenged son innocent of murder, the woman (played indelibly by Hye-ja Kim) will do anything to rescue him from incarceration. If that means crossing a few moral boundaries in the process, so be it.
Not all mothers are so selfless, though. Some, in fact, are downright hellacious. And while watching parental sacrifice can be an uplifting and occasionally thought-provoking experience, the sight of a mom warping filial devotion to her own ends -- with the kids sometimes getting their own back in return -- can be downright fun. So it was no trouble for us to come up with a list of Top 10 Toxic Movie Moms:

According to director Jacques Audiard's stunning new movie, A Prophet (Un Prophète), no one would wish to be in the shoes of Malik El Djebena (newcomer Tahar Rahim).
A low-level criminal serving a six-year prison sentence, he is at the mercy of the Darwinesque nightmare that is society behind bars, most particularly when he becomes the unwilling pawn of the jailed, Corsican mob boss, César Luciani (Niels Arestrup). As much as Malik tries to stay ahead of his situation -- using the paroles César has orchestrated as an opportunity to start his own drug-running operation, for instance -- fate, rival crooks, and the very smart César seek to intervene at every step.
It's a basic tenet of good storytelling that whatever plans your characters put into action, it can't hurt if things don't go quite as smoothly as anticipated. Sometimes, though, the brilliant, foolproof, fail-safe scheme that goes utterly and (oh boy!) horribly wrong is a story in itself. Moviemakers have taken good advantage of the irony, suspense, and drama to be had when a best-laid plan seriously "gangs agley," especially in these 10 gripping, and entertaining, examples:

Mothers. Everybody's got one (unless you're Superboy, who has two dads).
But in comics, motherhood has always been a major part of a hero's psyche, for better or for worse. Which is why we wracked our brains to bring you a Special Mother's Day Treat — a light-hearted compilation of the Top 20 Best and Worst Mothers in Comics!
Top 10 Best Mothers in Comics: Finding decent mothers in comics is no easy task, with many of them vying for space in the back of Kyle Rayner's refrigerator. (What, too soon?) But the best of heroes always have a better mother behind them, and the best of the best have made the list: ---continued :

Teddy Daniels, the U.S. Marshal played by Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese's new movie doesn't know what he's in for when he arrives on SHUTTER ISLAND. But he learns soon enough: Here at a government-run hospital for the criminally insane, the world has been turned upside down. There are vicious murderers, imposing guards, and mad doctors — not to mention ominous apparitions and dangerous thunderstorms. There's also an escaped murderess and a woman in a cave and a suspicious lighthouse. There are mysteries, conspiracies, dark secrets, and suspicious therapies. And above all else, there's no escape. Do you hear? NO ESCAPE!
And we say, "So, what else is new?"
If, like us, you've gotten the bulk of your education from the big screen, you know one thing is true: Islands are bad. Really bad. They're water-bound hellzones, natural refuges for the forces of pain, deception, and death. Here the wildest forces of nature hold sway, scientists flee to conduct their infernal experiments, megalomaniacs forge their plans for societies formed in their own image (and, if we're willing to throw LOST into the mix, the time-space continuum gets royally frakked).
There's good reason for a healthy skepticism that anything worthwhile can happen in a place where the exchange rate is calculated in fish. Just in case you doubt us, here are 10 compelling cases:

Turns out director Joe Johnston wasn't satisfied with the same ol' same ol' to explain why Benicio Del Toro is waxing all hairy and toothy in The Wolfman. Nope, no simple stroll-on-the-moors, random-wolf-bite, go-wild-at-moonrise for Toro's Lawrence Talbot. Instead, a family curse has been thrown into the mix, all the better to generate a piquant sense of doom even before Larry manifests an irrepressible urge to howl.
The curse that trips its way through the branches of a family tree is a great means to get to an audience's gut. We are, after all, consigned to what we're handed by our forebears, and whether such inheritances stem from genetics or upbringing, most of us have a vested interest in seeing if a protagonist can escape his/her own destiny. Pushing into the background our own concerns over those pentagram-shaped birthmarks on our hips, we started checking out all the ways that filmmakers have managed to bequeath their characters the gifts that keep on giving (and that rank as a bit more dire than thinning hairlines or thickening bellies).
Here, then, we offer up Family Be Damned: Top 10 Cursed Movie Characters. Warning: You might want to consider DNA screening afterward:

In the new movie FROZEN, a group of fun-loving snowboarders -- played by Shawn Ashmore, Emma Bell, and Kevin Zegers -- get stuck on a chair lift. As the ski resort shuts down for the week, the young people realize they are trapped, facing certain death from exposure to the elements.
Nothing quite strikes a nerve the way throwing a hapless human into a completely insurmountable situation does. There's an irresistible pull to watching someone suffer a sort of primal melt-down when faced with the realization that neither fight nor flight are viable options, and filmmakers have taken good advantage of the impulse, sometimes directly, sometimes in surprisingly nuanced ways.
We are not immune to the gut twist that comes when witnessing a trap well-sprung -- hell, we invite it! So in honor of those sorry snowboarders, we offer up our favorite Top 10 "No Escape" Scenarios. Click on the link to check 'em out:

Just in case you thought writing On the Origin of Species was a walk in the park for Charles Darwin, think again. According to the new movie Creation, it turns out that the renowned naturalist encountered more than a few stumbling blocks in the course of drafting the book that would establish the concept of evolution. Not only was he wracked with chronic illness, he was also concerned with how his work would fly in the face of religious doctrine and consumed with guilt over the death of his daughter Anne.
Imagine now if, on top of all of that, Darwin had regularly ducked into a movie theater and gotten a gander at the collection of hitherto-unknown life forms featured in movies. The ones that seem to defy several, if not all, the aspects of his theories. At best, their revelations would've thrown a monkey wrench into the writing process. At worst, they might've compelled the man to forsake his work in favor of a lifetime collecting decorative thimbles.
Fortunately for all our sakes, Darwin remained blissfully unaware of these rarefied beasts. But that doesn't mean we can't take a good look at 'em and see what havoc they might have wreaked in established science in "10 Creatures that Would Have Stumped Darwin:"

We don't really have to start campaigning for truth-of-narrative warning labels on historical movies, do we?
After all, the recent The Young Victoria and the upcoming The Last Station -- the latter about the turmoil at the end of Leo Tolstoy's life -- may take a few dramatic liberties with the facts, but all in all, they remain faithful to the lives of their subjects. And anyway, most people are smart enough to know that these things aren't meant to be documentaries; one should enjoy the show, without taking it all at face value.
Nevertheless, there's taking liberties, and then there's throwing the encyclopedia madly out the window. We've decided as a public service to compile a list of movies where the portrayal of historical figures has strayed significantly far from actual history. Read Top 10 Least Trustworthy Historical Figures in Movies, or embarrass yourself at parties later:
