I really wanted to be optimistic before seeing the trailer for "The Darjeeling Limited," but having seen it, I'm just not feeling it. Much as I loved "Bottle Rocket" and "Rushmore," "Tenenbaums" felt like a bit of a step back and "Life Aquatic," while not full on disappointing, misfired. Not looking forward to the next Wes Anderson flick is a dispiriting experience.

Also looking less appealing than I'd hoped, the Coen's new one, "No Country For Old Men." Tangentially, "American master, Cormac McCarthy" ... really? I've only read "The Road," and if that's representative, I guess I can't imagine why anyone would want to read more? Am I way off base here?

Malkovich, Hopkins, and Jolie in "Beowulf" immediately suggested an alternate title: "Clash of the Hambones."

Oh, Jackie. ~shakes head wearily~ The next time you see Brett Ratner or Chris Tucker's name on your caller ID, chuck the phone in the nearest body of water and get a new number. I could link to the "Rush Hour 3" trailer, but what would be the point? On the other hand, "Dynamite Warrior" might satisfy the martial arts/actioner jones.

Anybody see "The Simpsons" yet? I gave up on the show a few seasons ago, but find myself singing Spider Pig, Spider Pig, does whatever a Spider Pig does quite a bit.
