We Can't Wait #8 The Darjeeling Limited

It's like this: 20 films was probably way too many to count down. What was I thinking --are y'all enjoying this or have your eyes gotten very very droopy? Are you glad/angry about the break from that naked sword holding gold fella? [crickets chirping] But my blogbuddies Gabriel, Joe, JA and Lulu are being good sports about it so a big round of applause to them.

This is the post wherein we were going to be all excited about the new film from the inimitable Wes Anderson (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic) but it's already not a 2007 movie but a 2008 spectacular. So... next!

If you need an Anderson fix may I suggest this classic post from The Gilded Moose which just never ever ever gets old.

Well, this loyal reader is enjoying your countdown a lot. It's fun listening in on the buddy chat and it may even make me want to go and see some films that would otherwise totally pass me by. Does that make a difference?

Well we know so little about this movie at this point, I think all we probably would've had to say anyway was "Yay Wes Anderson!" So good call, Nat.

But seriously - Yay Wes Anderson!

LOVE the countdown. It gives one hope in the dreary winter months.

What a shame! I was really looking forward to this one, too... Stupid 2008. And yes, I'm enjoying the countdown too.

Also, isn't it The Darjeeling Limited, not Unlimited?
