Sometimes cartoons make life seem so much easier. Like when a character is faced with a tough decision and two little guys show up on his shoulders. One an angel, and one a little devil, and both offer some advice. All the character has to do is choose whichever he feels is best and then do it. The little guys disappear and come back whenever another crucial decision is approached.

Okay, let her in

Forget the wimpy vampires in “Twilight” who glitter in the sunlight and recite poetry. “Let Me In’s” young blood-drinker burns alive in the sun and would rather rip your throat out than hear Shakespeare. But, c’mon guys, she’s hungry.
