Continuing on with the horror flicks, comes "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" out today. The interesting thing about this movie is that it's a horror, yet also a musical. With only one look at the trailer for the movie, you can instantly tell that it's been directed by none other than Tim Burton. And we all know that Burton doesn't make movies without Johnny Depp, so once again we aren't surprised when we see that he plays the lead.
It's Christmas time again, so in true holiday spirit the theaters give us holiday movies... well usually. Something about 2007 apparently didn't excite moviemakers because there have been very few holiday-themed movies, and the ones that have been released made sounds not even close to those of joy and cheer. "Fred Claus" didn't hit any true holiday feelings, I don't think anyone saw "This Christmas," and "The Golden Compass" is holiday-ish, but not really.

We have no assurance that we won't have to repeat this next month.
It seems to me that 6:00 PM to Mid-nite is a more critical period than Mid-nite to 6:00 AM.
A new film starting Friday in theaters is "Awake." While it's one of those films that is not being screened early for critics, it's hard to gauge how this will end up being. Judging from previews, it looks to be quite an interesting thriller that stars Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba.
According to a new report, "Adding it Up: State Challenges for Increasing College Access and Success," the United States has fallen to 10th among industrialized nations in the percentage of 25- to 34-year-olds with an associate's degree or higher. And it's one of the only nations where older adults are more educated than younger ones.
This weekend get the family together and rent "Shrek the Third."
Shrek is back once again with Fiona, Donkey and more for yet another franchise that keeps on going. King Harold has passed, and Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers) is next in line for the crown. But being the giant, green ogre he is, doubts loom large of his possible role as king.
Feah not. The Providence Journal has collected recipes from newspapers all over Amurca so no one need go home hungry.
