Beetlejuice is back.

And no. Just. No. As I feared, Beetlejuice’s Graveyard review has been cleaned up, blanded (songs areeven more dated!), and toothless (they don’t even change costumes anymore). I’m unsurprised but annoyed-Universal did this well because it wasn’t squeaky-clean, and now …

I wish I were excited for Muppet’s Most Wanted

http://farm2.staticflickr.com/1102/1473732774_930c790f5b_m.jpg

So, this post has been started and stopped over the past few days, especially after the fierce Superbowl Muppet commercials.  I’m taking up a challenge by Disney Donna Kay to blog today.  I don’t usually put disclaimers like this one …

Way back in the beginning of this blog (pre-WWoHP, for crying out loud!) I mentioned Beetlejuice’s Graveyard Review as one of my favorite attractions at Universal.  It is mainly because it’s not Disney in everyway:  non-Bowlderized rock, double-ententes, hot performers, blatantly PG-13.  I …
