movies you shouldn't see

I saw The Wendell Baker Story yesterday. I do love Luke Wilson, but the movie he wrote wasn't very good. There's a reason that although they filmed it in 2003, it didn't make it to the screen until this year. The story jumps from thing to thing without the smooth flow of a Wes Anderson movie, which I suspect is what the Wilson boys were going for.

That said, there are some absolutely gorgeous shots of Austin and the surrounding area, including a river that's supposedly the Rio Grande but that looks suspiciously like the Pedernales. The shot of the 360 Bridge near my home is lovely.
