Recent Media Review

The Classic Fairy Tales has been entertaining. Jack the Giant Killer is a serious bad-ass who does very violent things to giants. And who knew that in an early text of Sleeping Beauty the only act that would rouse her from her coma was rape by a king.

Yesterday we watched The Lightning Thief, a mythological fairy-tale sort of romp with over-the-top special effects and pretty bad acting. But it was cute. The kids liked it.

Finally, some of my recent online reading: a Guantánamo cover-up and a sugar article.
