We have a special guest reviewer today with his thoughts on Fox's new animated series, "Napoleon Dynamite." Tom Edwards lives in Raleigh and is a Systems Administrator for a local engineering firm, but also writes for websites like Popbunker.net and Geek Shui Living. He a husband and father of three sons, and describes himself as a baseball and comics geek. You can follow Tom on Twitter at @mrworkrate or read his blog, Buhner Dot Com.
When it comes to TV and films, there’s a concept I like to call the “Titanic Paradox.” It’s when a TV show or film comes out and everyone you know sees it, tells you how great it is, and how you have to see it, so much to the point that you don’t want to watch it, just out of spite. Titanic, the James Cameron opus that told us what would happen if the History Channel and Lifetime ever had a big budget baby, lends its name to the principle.
For me, "Napoleon Dynamite" was one of those films.
