    Scorcese directing Part II…fascinating. He could have done well, but it’s strange imagining any of the Godfather films being directed by anyone else.

    The Lynch/Danger Mouse collab sounds great.

    Who really doubted Up? Really? I’m thinking I should personally invest in Pixar’s stock. I’m years late.
