From Variety:

1. 'FISH' FRIES FRODO
'King' dethroned as fantasy makes waves
Sony's "Big Fish" made a $14.5 million splash at the box office, as the Tim Burton fantasy finished No. 1 in its first weekend in wide release.

I hate reading reviews saying that this movie doesn't have the "magic." The movie is great. What else do you need. Leave it alone.


2. 'DYNASTY' REDUX AT ABC
Two-hour telepic to chart rise and fall of classic sudser
Break out the champagne and shoulder pads: ABC is building a new "Dynasty."


Is ABC so desparate for a new hit, that's reach back to an old one? It's a stunt. Hopefully they'l get some ratings and use the advertising $ for new shows. Please cancell "Threat Matric." It's a waste of money.
