The holiday season is quickly approaching! That means it's time to plan for the dinners you'll be hosting, prepare your home with all the festive decorations, and, of course, start looking for epic holiday gifts for all your loved ones.

Holiday shopping can, unfortunately, quickly turn into an expensive endeavor, especially if you don't have anything exact in mind for a specific person. Luckily there are plenty of gift-worthy toys, video games, tech gadgets, home items, and more currently on sale, so you can start tackling your holiday shopping to-do list without paying full price, ahead of Black Friday. Instead of getting right to shopping the day after Thanksgiving, you can start checking names off your list now, so when Black Friday rolls around on Nov. 25, you'll already be ahead.

16 Times Hollywood Tried To Remake A Classic And Audiences Said No Thank You

  16 Times Hollywood Tried To Remake A Classic And Audiences Said No Thank You The order of this list was determined by 10,000 votes on Ranker.com. Audiences will put up with many things from Hollywood, but the one thing filmgoers have little tolerance for is a remake of a cinema classic.
