David Fincher's obituary will likely refer to him as the director of Fight Club, but Zodiac is his most complete work. Luxuriate in its full 157 minutes this week when it reaches stores. The Number 23 had a pretty good trailer, but unfortunately the actual movie was longer than 90 seconds. Bring back Lloyd Christmas, Jim! Sure HBO seems to have the best shows on cable, but Showtime is quickly closing the gap. Weeds is its best series to date--funny, absurd, relevant and featuring uber-MILF Mary-Louise Parker. Prepare for the crappy live-action Underdog movie with the classic Underdog cartoons. Keeley Hazell's zoomers enliven a mannered, should-have-remained-a-short Cashback. Speaking of zoomers--nude, female French wrestlers? Yes, please!
