Movie Roundup

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory

Because Tim Burton spent six months teaching 200 squirrels to crack hazelnuts, sort them and then load them on to a conveyor belt.

Because it's fun - fun by way of gross overindulgence in candy and chocolate and wicked retribution.

Soylent Green

The year is 2020, the ecology is destroyed, people riot for their food chips ... and it's a long, cheesy ride to the punchline.

But if that's what we reduced to, would we mind so much if we still have New Jersey? A little Ranch-flavored powder can work wonders.

(But just to be on the safe side, buy organic, support sustainable practices, and read Jared Diamond's Collapse.)
