(88 Minutes) -- Al Pacino mystery/thriller. Don Corleone can be kinda hit or miss these days.
Iron Man -- This will be a banner year for Robert Downey Jr. More on that later.
The Happening -- M. Night Shyamalan tries to put his lightning back in its bottle.
The Love Guru -- I want to believe that Mike Meyers has more than Shrek sequels left in him and trailers make me believe that this could have the same wtf non sequiter dialogue gold that made Austin Powers so great.
Hancock -- Will Smith as a superhero who also happens to be a homeless drunk. Great cast, great concept, fingers crossed.
(X-Files 2) -- Never a huge fan of the show, but it was such a pop cultural force in its time, it might be worth a look.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor -- I'm all in favor of Brendan Fraser, Asian wizards, and CGI yeti fights, so I'm down.

You may be familiar with Andy Warhol's use of repetition in his art (see below). I can't remember why he did it, but it was probably to comment on perspective and phenomenological issues of perception.
While reading Shoe today, the punchline seemed dull, so I quickly substituted a quick insult: You're fat. Much funnier. So here is an exercise in repetition of the same basic punchline (with a few others thrown in). Make of it what you will. More comics after the jump.
