If you're in Minneapolis and you see either of these over "Che", don't come crying...
Find my scoldings of the bad-as-they-look Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Hotel for Dogs in tomorrow's Star Tribune.
In the meantime, I'm going to be leaving for Washington, D.C. tomorrow afternoon to spend the weekend with friends and attend the inauguration on Tuesday. I have one post in the pipeline for the weekend but have no idea what my Wi-Fi access will be like for the next five days, so please excuse my likely absence. Flights are always good writing time for me, though (I wrote a number of reviews up there in the sky this year, actually), so when I get back I hope to have reviews ready of The Wrestler, Notorious, and Trouble the Water, which I finally saw last weekend.
Also, I've decided I'm going to take the last week in January (26-30) to comprehensively review 2008, ending with my Top 10 list that Friday, which I can already tell you is not going to be a "10 best" ranking so much as it's going to be a "most important and/or most socially significant in my opinion" ranking.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and if you're going to be in D.C. this weekend as well, maybe our paths will cross in the thronging masses of millions. I'll be the guy wearing shorts - we've had windchills in the 20s and 30s below zero for about the last 90 hours straight, so a 60 degree temperature swing is going to feel downright tropical. I hope.
