Oh, my eyes

A new movie review -- "The Darjeeling Limited"

It's the worst movie I've seen in a while. Don't bother. Despite the all-star cast, the script was so ... desolate. The characters were empty. I'm sure I wasn't grasping what they were trying to impart. It's by Wes Anderson, who also did "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," and "The Royal Tenenbaums." Of the three, only "Tenenbaums" has any redeeming value.

For a better movie, rent "No Country For Old Men," which you're all surely tired of having critics bash you over the head with by now. It's good, although dark. I think perhaps the author (originally it was a book), Cormac McCarthy, just writes dark stuff? I'm not sure, as I've only read one of his books ("The Road"), and that was extremely dark, although it's in my Top 5 books, of all time. Right up there with "Bird by Bird," and "Jitterbug Perfume." What a group.
