Journey to the Center of the Earth: Agent Bedhead gives this one some reserved praise, writing: “the script’s awfulness never really distracts from the oohs and aahs involved with the film’s brilliant visuals. If you’re willing to suspend belief and ignore a few glaring continuity errors — Fraser is, apparently, the only cast member with operable sweat glands, and backpacks are often abandoned and automagically reappear a few scenes later — this ride will be worth the inflated 3-D ticket price.”

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl: Agent Bedhead wasn’t as kind here, writing: “After three made-for-television films, the American Girls franchise decided to go for the theatrical realm. The transition from small to large screen starts out as a promising endeavor, but screenwriter Ann Peacock and director Patricia Rozema (Mansfield Park) eventually overcomplicate matters and end up with an uneven product. So, while the rampant consumer whoredom of Bratz: The Movie makes Kit Kittredge: An American Girl seem stellar in comparison, the latter doesn’t hold up quite as well on its own due to sloppy scripting and haphazard plot weaving. Still, the film’s positives outweigh the negatives, and a solid role model and multi-generational appeal will score parental points every damn time.”

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead:Priso raves about this motherfucker: ” Troma Films takes a page from the Swiftian satirists of “South Park” and their death-shitting Wall-Mart, offering up a big, steaming, messy, disgusting, gloriously sexploitative feast with their latest, and absolutely greatest, picture: Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead. It hinges on a hilariously irreverent premise: a fast food fried chicken restaurant is built on an ancient Indian tribal burial ground, and a batch of veiny eggs cause people to turn into chicken Indian zombies who tear people limb from limb.

“Oh. And it’s a musical.”

Freaks and Geeks — Yearbook Edition”: Here’s a collector’s edition that’s probably worth the purchase, as it’s not only one of our Best 20 Seasons of the Last 20 Years, but named by The TV Whore as the Best Short-Lived Series of All Time.
