Friday Night Fights

And so another long week closes at Movieline, where we leave you with sweet memories of new friends, old enemies and the undecided strangers in between. If the last seven days of news taught us anything, they won't stay neutral for long. Reminisce after the jump, and have a lovely weekend!

· Movieline officially got into the kudos business with the Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards, and look who showed up: Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt did a pantomime while Eli Roth, Diane Kruger, Nikki Reed, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck and the (500) Days of Summer screenwriters all went live on camera. And we kept score for those of you at home.

· The American Film Market carried on with 10 amazing titles for sale (and one American Virgin).

· We've got your interviews, starting with meaty 2012 tandem John Cusack and Roland Emmerich, mixed in with The Box director Richard Kelly and flavored with some Carla Gugino, seasoned some more with James Franco's artistic collaborator Carter and simmered for 20 minutes with Jim Caviezel, then stirred by The Yes Men and garnished with Mya, Taylor Schilling and Ashley Springer. Add a One-Page Screenplay by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White to flavor. Serves a few hundred thousand.

· The season finale of Mad Men came and went, locking the Power Rankings in place for an agonizing nine months. January Jones beer-pong videos simply won't cut it.

· But can there ever really be enough of Louis Virtel's heart-warming Project Runway recaps to go around?

· The assholes at South Park went from bad to worse.

· Date Night, Clash of the Titans, Kick-Ass and Why Did I Get Married Too all faced our Two-Minute Verdict. Tasmanian Lautner and Kung-Fu Quentin, meanwhile, went straight to video.

· If all animals were as fearsome as Jake Gyllenhaal's killer ostriches, Twilight starlets wouldn't have to go naked trying to protect them.

· Hank, Dollhouse and Eastwick all bit the TV dust.

· We toasted cockney vigilantism, awards-season camp and kids' game shows more tolerable than My Little Genius.

· The Twitter feed Shit My Dad Says got a TV deal. Shit Precious' Mom Says can't be far behind.

· James Cameron will lapse into self-parody no fewer than 23,000 times this awards season. And you can bet we'll keep track for you along the way.
