Movie Reviewlets

Ghost World - sometimes funny, sometimes poignant view of a girl dealing with life after high school. A running joke was that boys always found Scarlet Johansson prettier than her ignored friend played by Thora Birch, although I found Thora to be the more attractive. A great entry into the genre of teenage angst movies, but for my money the topper is still Heathers.
- 3 out of 5 stars.

School of Rock - cute and charming, but utterly safe. Casting Joan Cusack as the principal was a brilliant move. The movie also entertains the conceipt that 70's Rock was the best music ever made, which establishes Jack Black's generation (people tend to get locked into the music of their teen years).
- 2.5 out of 5 stars.
