I understand every criticism of Family Guy, but I still tune in regularly to watch Peter, Cleveland and Quagmire do the same jokes time after time after time. It just makes me laugh. While Friday the 13th may have sucked completely, at least it didn't wuss out and go for a PG-13. Here's to gore and nudity! With the next Transformers film looming, what better time to piggyback a cartoon compilation and get some free marketing buzz? Why can't Tyler Perry use his prodigious business talents for something other than making crappy movies? Why, Jesus? Why? Why? How have I never seen What's Up, Tiger Lily?? Soon to be corrected.

What Goes Up continues the new trend of releasing films quickly to video after a brief theatrical run. Too bad it sucks. Twenty years later, I still listen to "Gypsy Road", "Coming Home" and "Don't Know What You Got". In the remarkable, Love and Death on Long Island there is a fake movie called Skid Marks. Obviously, a terrible title for a fake film. Until now. Damn, I miss Andy Kaufman. If you've never seen My Breakfast with Blassie or I'm From Hollywood!, do so immediately. It's heartbreaking that we'll never know what Andy would have done over the last twenty years. I thought that Monsturd was the best | worst title of the year. Correction!
