Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday! (You need to hear that in the voice of a 1980′s era Monster Truck radio ad announcer. That reference either makes sense or it doesn’t. Apologies if it doesn’t.)
Quick comment: I have to say that when I said I would fill in for Madeline for a few days, the last thing I thought I would be writing about was former President George W. Bush. Not that I mind, but it seems strange. I had an item about him yesterday, and there’s one today. I’m not looking for them, believe me.
And now — the news!
Update from Nerdy Movie Land (which, surprisingly, is not located at my house): ‘Watchmen‘ dropped to second place, losing the top spot to ‘Race to Witch Mountain.’ Proving… nothing, really. Personally, I want ‘Watchmen’ to do well so that studio executives keep greenlighting superhero movies. So far it’s made about $85 million, which is pretty good for two weeks. Unfortunately, there are reports that many people are walking out of the film before it’s over, which doesn’t really help with that whole word of mouth thing.
