Coming Distractions November 18th, 2008

It's gonna be a big week (finally!) for new releases:

Tropic Thunder
Mister Lonely
Noam Chomsky On the World
Project Runway - 4th Season
Encounters at the End of the World
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2
Gonzo: The Life and Times of Hunter S. Thompson

I've come here today to tell you about an oft-overlooked, heartwarming little 1990 documentary we just got on DVD called Troll 2. This film follows the Waits family on vacation as they fall for the good people of Nilbog and their unusual agricultural practices. Caveat: there are no actual trolls in this movie, for that you may want to partake of the wonderful escapades of a summer vacation in Llort. I think it's somewhere near Nilbog, though you may have to take a wrong turn through the mouth of hell to get there.

If you can turn people into plants, and then you eat them, do you still qualify as a vegetarian? It makes more sense than vegetarians who eat chicken, right? Unless, of course, you're turning the chickens into vegetation first, too... Woah, this is getting too convoluted for my overwrought brain. Instead of pondering the Big Questions I'm a gonna focus on this chicken's extravagant plumage and comforting backdrop. Is that not one of the most majestic chickens you've ever seen?

Popcorn is passé. Some canned food to snack on while you relax?
