From what I'm hearing the screenings of "War Inc." are doing very well so far this weekend. If you're in the area, check it out.

This clever new movie takes the next logical step in the evolution of the Bush Doctrine. Instead of sending the US Armed Forces to conquer oil rich Middle Eastern countries, we now have the Tamerlane Corporation leading the charge to fulfill a Dick Cheney-like CEO's wet dream. John Cusack plays a hit man hired by the corporation to make sure their bottom line is met at all costs. His conscience has had about enough of the carnage left in his wake in this sobering, yet funny look at war profiteers. Blackwater's got nothing on Tamerlane Corporation.

Here's John Cusack with Bill Maher talking about his new picture.
