Will? Please make Anchorman 2 while you still can! | Photo courtesy of New Line Cinemas

I'll say it right off--I am a big Will Ferrell fan. Mostly, that's because of the absolute devotion I accord to Anchorman, but I still try to catch all of his work. While Semi-Pro isn't Bewitched-bad, it's probably a few notches below Blades of Glory. Only one scene is truly laugh-out-loud funny--the card game. I was never a huge fan of Joy Division but Control makes me wish I paid more attention back in the day. The film is dazzling and unique. With the new season of Weeds only a week or so away, now would be a good time to catch up on Season 3. And what is this I'm hearing about Rescue Me--no new episodes till 2009? Blasphemy!
