The Lion King
'Tis the season to slaughter turkeys. Did anybody not see former Vice President wannabe Sarah Palin hold a Q&A downstage of a turkey’s obvious death? (Go HERE if you didn't.)

On a more cheerful note, here are a few gems from Hollywood made for the animal lover in all of us:

Best All-Around Animal Film

The Adventures of Milo and Otis

The film is the best all-animal movie, with March of the Penguins coming in as an understudy. A documentary showing a death of a cute baby penguin? Definitely going to lose against a Japanese (yes, really, Japanese) movie with Dudley Moore as a...

Bob Saget
