It's the end of the world as we know it.....

This past weekend, the movie "Jackass 3D" made $50 million at the box office. In a recession. Doing things they do for free on MTV. All this while far superior films like "Red," starring actual talented people, was showing at most of the same theaters. What is wrong with us, America?

Even more troubling is this photo, which shows a dog that has apparent Bieber Fever. This spawn of Satan will break the seven seals and unleash the Four Horsemen, signaling the end of the world. Take me now, Lord.

Take your toddler to a vampire movie

The Angelika Theater in Dallas offers a "crybaby matinee" each week to moms who need to get out without the worry of the noise their little ones make. The Angelika's "crybaby matinee" plays movies with the lights halfway down and the sound turned down, and there are no complaints if a baby gets upset. Parents and kids under five get in free. It's a cool idea.

This week's "crybaby matinee," however, has me wondering. The movie is "Let Me In," a movie about a child vampire. It's rated R for language and vampire violence. I haven't seen the film (although I did like the original Swedish version) it just makes one wonder, who in their right mind takes their baby or toddler to a vampire movie? I know a baby may not be affected by it, but a three, four, or five year old might be emotionally scarred. If they really want a baby to keep quiet, show them the new "Wall Street." Everyone will be asleep in ten minutes.
