Lots of good stuff added this week.

If anyone passed up Rango thinking it was a Pixar-lite kiddie flick, give it a chance. Really great movie, especially for spaghetti western fans.

Fear and Loathing fans will appreciate parts of it as well.

My 11 year old son really wanted me to buy a venus flytrap - so I did. Of course, I plan on showing him Little Shop of Horrors.

And Magnum PI - great '80s detective series, nice compliment to their recently added Miami Vice - entire series.

I had no idea Almost Heroes was directed by Christopher Guest. Always just knew it as the movie that Farley died while filming. I get it confused with Wagons East.

So do I.

I like most of Guest's movies so I'm surprised about Almost Heroes. I didn't know he directed that, either.
