Week in Review: Early-Departure Edition

Did anything else of consequence happen this week besides the opening of the darkest superhero movie ever, the movie that might win Heath Ledger his Oscar, the movie that buries Aaron Eckhart, the movie that makes IMAX worth it, the movie that will introduce the Watchmen to the nation? Not really! Well, there is the Dominic Cooper-starring Mamma Mia!, which if you go to see it might forestall the death of America (if not the explosion of Paul Dergarabedian). There was the premiere of Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible. And there were the Emmys, which managed not to nominate The Wire while nominating "I'm Fucking Matt Damon."

What else was good this week? Space Chimps, apparently. Ryan Adams's upcoming literary career. The Girl Talk mash-ups. Kanye's photo ops. Inglorious Bastards casting. Spider-Man cattle calls. W bar fights. The upcoming death of Izzie. And — fingers crossed! — the retirement of Eddie Murphy. Have fun in line, America!
