Wes Anderson doesn't have many casual fans. You either love the strange worlds of whimsy he creates or you find it all a bit precious and twee. Count me in the former camp and count The Darjeeling Limited as a return to form for Anderson after the ambitious but foggy The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Next generation 3-D isn't quite there yet, but Beowulf was a huge leap forward from the dead-eyed The Polar Express. Maybe James Cameron will perfect it in Avatar. Death at a Funeral was funnier than critics and audiences gave it credit for while Comanche Moon looks quaint and a little silly next to great revisionist western fare like Deadwood.
