"Swing Vote" is just brilliant. It is intelligent, funny, cynical AND hopeful at the same time. It is the best movie I have seen in months, and the funniest movie I have seen since, "Thank You for Smoking." I can't recommend it highly enough.
"The Mummy: Curse of the Dragon Emperor" is a bit flat, but still fun; better by a fair amount that "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull". its most recent competitor, but not nearly as good as its predecessors. Still, Brendan Fraser's Rick O'Connell is three times as much fun as Indiana Jones (or any other character of that ilk), and he doesn't disappoint.
