The Lion is King again!!!

Might as well use the same image. Ooh! Let's see if the code works... Code beautiful, as the Hulk might say, and as the computer nerd's magazine should be named. Or maybe they should go the other way, and change the name of Dr. Dobb's Journal to 0000001 Magazine. Something like that. Anyway, once again the hottest new movie of the week is 90s nostalgia. And the Cable Ace Award for Best New Series goes to... old Starsky and Hutches. (Accepting this award is the son of the guy who played Huggy Bear!) A DOUBLE dose of Simpsons and 90s nostalgia for ya. Of course, as much as I love the Simpsons, even I had to take exception to Homer inventing grunge. And I don't even care for grunge all that much! I know, it's not cool to call it grunge. Unfair to garage bands everywhere. I wanna keep it short this week, even though we've got four debuts again. The latest Brad Pitt vehicle debuts behind Lion King, the sequel to Shark Tale opens at #3, and at #4 is the not-soon-enough sequel to Taken called Abduction. Let's face it: Team Jacob's a bunch of cheapskates. Finally, we have Statham's Fall 2011 remake of The Mechanic called Killer Elite. Now De Niro's the... lemme see if I can find it. Got it! Now De Niro's the Jean-Pierre, mentoring the young generation that all the old fogies so desperately want to rejoin. Take Kirk Douglas at the Oscars, fer instance...
