I don't want to sound like I'm having a go but, what's the point in doing the evolution of a second rate bit part actress who probably won't be around for long? It amazes me that you'll give all this time and space to someone who features in a load of (and I quote) balls and predominantly 2 star movies when you haven't mentioned once! the passing of Richard Todd who died last Friday. How about using this empty space for a celebration of his work?

Ok, while I get what you're saying, and from a movie point of view, it's fair enough, I feel it's more than a little insensitive to describe Zack's experience in Alpha Dog as a "fun kidnapping".
Taking into context it is based on a true story and that Zack (the real life Nicholas Markowitz) is pointlessly murdered at the end of his experience I think that super seeds any element of fun. I doubt the real life parents would see it in that way anyway. So I think 'poor Zack' is entirely relevant as I'm sure he'd have given up the booze, weed and threesomes to have lived past 15 years old. Wouldn't you?
