There is one over-riding question which has to be addressed today, and I'm sure it's one that has been occupying the minds of a lot of people in recent days. Do we go and see Wall-E this weekend or Wanted? Both have their appeal: while the sheen has gone off Pixar for us with their last couple of films [Cars and Ratatouille - the latter which my spell-checker wants to correct to "Unattainable," for some reason], this one is directed by Andrew Stanton, who did the last really good Pixar film, in Finding Nemo.
The reviews have been terrific, but our idea of cinema fun does not include sharing the theater with large numbers of children. That would not be an issue for Wanted, since it's rated R: that's how we like our action movies. And need I say any more about it than:
Meanwhile, in Florida, the Diamondbacks will try to improve their average for this road-trip, by scoring two runs or more in a game. So, lyrical animated fantasy, excessive ultraviolence, or our leadoff hitter and his sub-.300 OBP [be it Byrnes or Drew]. Let me know.
What to do on Saturday afternoon?
