Just saw the trailer and it looks hilarious. The cast is amazing, too.

I'll watch every movie these guys ever make. No disappointments so far.

Ditto to their movies.

My favorite is the under-appreciated "O Brother Where Art Thou?"

As a Southerner, I thought they captured the Old South very well.

I must admit that when I saw "Barton Fink", I was just out of college and a lot of it must have gone over my head. Maybe it's worth another look.

Doh. iTunes is REQUIRED to view the trailer?!?! Come on Apple... They are doing that more and more. I don't want another application running on my computer just so I can watch movie trailers using a piece of software (quicktime) that is also required for view the trailers... Argh...

Yeah, it's kinda silly. Apple is the only place you can get the trailer in HD, though. (720 and 1080 available)

Looks great. Like a cross between Big LeBowski and Fargo.

Love most of the Cohen Brothers stuff. Didn't see Barton Fink o the Man Who Wasn't There. Loved O' Brother and Raising Arizona might be one of the funniest movies of all time. Big Lebowski has more one liners in it than most that come to mind.

Totally didn't get 'No Country' though. Thought it was over-rated and under-written, frankly. I am ovisouly in the minority here, though.

Cast does look great. Brad Pitt is a distinctly under-rated actor. His turn in Jesse James was fantastic. He smoked on that screen - evrey single seen oozed tension and a subdued derangement that should has earned him more kudos than it did.
