- On the cover: George Clooney in Syriana, and a feature story about all of the serious political flicks we seem to be getting nowadays (most of them from Clooney).
- Odd question of the week: why do so many reviews reference old or obscure movies?
- New movie reviews: EW gives Syriana a B-, Rent an A-, Yours, Mine, and Ours a C, and The Ice Harvest an A-.
- New DVD reviews: War of the Worlds gets a C+, while the new deluxe King Kong (which I must pick up this week!) gets an A.
