Tinker Bell continues Disney's long and successful tradition of re-packaging characters from other films and presenting them cheaply to children. In other words, corporate evil 101. Brendan Fraser is a fantastic actor who constantly makes mediocre to bad movies. Journey to the Center of the Earth is entry #16. Guy Pearce, on the other hand, is a fine actor who constantly appears in films that few see. He is as good as they get. It is impossible to watch an episode of MST3K and not laugh often and loudly. That, friends, is the definition of brilliant comedy. The Little Rascals is funnier now then when I was a kid. The Flintstones is not. At all.

Expect the heroic Celtics to once again defeat the dastardly Lakers in next year's NBA Finals. To whet your appetite for that future victory, pick up last year's iteration now on DVD. I don't think I've ever actually liked a Lloyd Kaufman film, but I sure do like Lloyd Kaufman. The mainsteaming of Jenna Jameson is a troubling trend. First of all, it presents a terrible example to children that a porn actress can become an acceptable member of decent society. Second of all, Jenna wasn't that great at porn! I mean, where's the enthusiasm, honey? I wonder if Jesus'fame spread from his vampire hunting.
