Man, how cool would it be to have a remote control you could use to flip over secret panels and open hidden rooms? It would be REALLY COOL! Although something tells me that one might incur hidden expenses, too!

Not much to say about today’s comic except that it carries on the fine, recent tradition of burning the third panel to deliver no dialogue and not action. Just a simple beat in pacing to help deliver the punchline. I’ve been doing that a lot lately.

I’ve keep my eyes so close to The Corpse Bride coming out this weekend that I’ve totally forgotten about some of the other films hitting the multiplex. Flightplan, for example.

This new Jodie Foster movie is not one I am excited about. If you’ve seen the trailers, you can confirm that it basically looks like Panic Room on a plane. I want to start a betting pool to see if her missing child even existed. The last thing I want to do is see the film for myself and remove all doubt. Call me stubborn. Anyone going to see this movie Friday? Bite the bullet for me? E-mail me and tell me how it turns out.

What’s up with Jodie Foster only taking roles these last few years where she is either in shock, in awe, or in terror. Always standing there slack-jawed. Can she not perform anything else? Between Contact and Panic Room, I’m beginning to think not.

Sure, she played Anna in Anna and the King and had a small role in The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys, but those films weren’t as high profile as the others.

Nell was a pretty freaky movie by most accounts and that character was really far out there, but at least there was some effort made. I think everyone remembers Silence of the Lambs, but people forget how totally disarming she can be. I mean, have you seen The Accused? Go rent it. Now.

Or maybe I’m just being nit-picky.

I don't see what is so objectionable about The Corpse Bride. Aren't you the one who thinks Johnny Depp is the best thing since sliced bread?

An animated representation is no an authentic Johnny Depp experience!

Fine! Be that way! I guess I'll go see it by myself!
