Ryder the robber
I love Wynona Ryder! Why would she allegedly shoplift clothes from Saks Fifth Avenue? It just doesn't make any sense! - Janet, Weehawken
Ours is not to wonder why.
With all of the movies mentioned in the Current last week ("Coming Attractions," Dec. 20), there is not one movie I want to see. Not one! - Mark, Jersey City
We find that hard to believe. We previewed everything from romantic comedies to stupid teen flicks to sci-fi extravaganzas to quirky independent films. There's even a war movie. There must be one movie that interests you.
Why do the Hollywood movie studios save all of their best movies for the holiday season, when no one has any time to see a movie? ("Coming Attractions," Dec. 20) - Peter, Hoboken
Because they want the movies to be fresh in the mind of Academy members, who tend to have short memories.
I love egg nog, but I'm trying to diet. What should I do? - Stacie
Try soy nog!
I'm a trivia nut. Any way you can hook me up with other trivia fiends out there?
One of our editors plays a team trivia game at a bar out of town every week. She says it's tough but fun, and they have great toasted sandwiches. E-mail us and we'll put you in touch.
My friend says that "The Magic Garden" on Channel 11 was only seen locally. I say that it was nationwide. Who's right? - P.L., Hoboken
From what we know, it was local. But "Zoom," from Boston, was nationwide. It's good you and your friend are discussing the issues of the day. And they say Gen X is apathetic!
