You considered that review positive?  Dull plot?  Few jokes?  Toned-down Jack?  No real fantasy?  Lackluster script?  Called a D fan's "Phantom Menace?"

I wouldn't call those descriptors positive.

The jury is still out!

I didn't realize SideShow figures were anatomically correct...

I'll bet she eats a cookie from time to time.  It's not like she's a twig...

I was wondering why the page count kept changing every five minutes...

Here's an extended trailer for 300.  It's looking amazing.

I admire Wal*mart for their brutal efficiency.  That's the main reason they're so successful, and their prices are so competitive.  They've forced the rest of the industry to do the same.  And as a result, prices at Target, Kmart, and your local grocery story are 10 or 20% lower than they would be absent the stiff competition.  This has been a huge benefit to the American way of life.

I'm going to pull some numbers out of my butt here based on something I read years ago.  So the numbers, while generally representative, are probably not 100% accurate.  But here goes...

Back when Welfare began, to decide on the exact income of a family to be labeled the "poverty level," they based it on a percentage of the family income necessary to buy enough food to  avoid hunger.  And the percentage was something like 40% of the total income needed to be spent on food.  Then they calculated that a family would need to earn $10,000 per year or something to survive.

Now, 50 years later, they still use that same percentage to calculate the poverty line.  But now, with the intense competition in the grocery business, your average family only spends like 10 or 15% of their income on food.  So now even people at the poverty level have an additional 25 or 30% of their income to devote to other expenses.

That's how much people have benefitted, in large part, to Wal*mart.

If Axl was in it for the money we'd have a dozen GnR albums by now.  He's super-anal about his art, and really couldn't care less about the money.

I think dropping a full dollar in a month is a little more that a seasonal thing, even after adjusting for inflation.

Yeah... obviously Big Oil is giving their Republican a hand for the November elections.   ;)
