Most people have probably pegged Adam Carolla as little more than a snarky morning DJ, but The Hammer reveals him to be a talented and occasionally inspired filmmaker. His inclusion of his longtime, almost unintelligible friend Oswaldo into the film was a stroke of pure genius. In Bruges didn't break any new storytelling ground but it was a completely satisfying piece of indie pie. Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell shine is a pair of mismatched crooks on the run. While Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk receive the lion's share of hype, Persepolis may have been the most perceptive comic-book adaptation since Ghost World.
