Obama's Loss Traced to John Young

This is one of the most awesome things I've ever seen online.

At this website you can customize this election-day video to use whatever name you want.

Below is the video with my name being used:

Mr. Eastwood, why so angry?

Perhaps the funniest facial expression in the history of cinema can be seen in the new trailer for "Gran Torino."

Synecdoche Split

Oh, I am looking forward to the critical mayhem that will be unleashed when the majority of the "Synecdoche, New York" reviews come out tomorrow and Friday.

Already, one critic calls it "the best American film of 2008" (MSNBC's Alonso Duralde) and another says "No matter how bad you think the worst movie ever made ever was, you have not seen Synecdoche, New York" (New York Observer's Rex Reed).

I personally think Rex Reed is an idiotic fool. "Synecdoche" is a wildly ambitious, incredibly thoughtful, frequently hilarious, and ultimately poignant film. It's a success through and through, and its inherent messiness only makes me love it more.

But, the thing is, I can completely understand how someone could hate the film. And be prepared: many, many, many people are going to hate this film. Maybe even you. Actually, probably even you. Probably most people who see it. I don't know.

I may think my opinion is right, but I can't say your opinion is wrong. But "Synecdoche" is destined to become a great way to quickly judge another person's personality. If you become interested in someone who happens to disagree with you on this movie, run away from them as quickly as you can -- it's simply not meant to be.

So, march on, "Synecdoche." Let chaos continue its happy dance.

Football Commercials

It takes a lot to make football exciting for me, but these two Nike commercials do just that. Perhaps it's because they're directed by two talented Hollywood filmmakers. The first one, which is brand new, is directed by David Fincher. The second one came out last year and was made by Michael Mann.

SNL - VP debate

You've probably already seen this, but it's golden.

My favorite part:

Moderator Gwen Ifill: Governor Palin, what is your position on health-care regulation?
Governor Sarah Palin: I'm gonna ignore that question and instead talk about Israel!

Meet Poppy

She's the protagonist of Mike Leigh's "Happy-Go-Lucky" and probably the most annoying person you could ever meet. I'm terrified just looking at this photo of her.

More on Poppy and "Happy-Go-Lucky" later.
