Envy is a comedy released in 2004 starring Ben Stiller and Jack Black. Both of their characters work for 3M, where Stiller is some sort of manager in the sandpaper department (Tim Dingman) and Black (Nick Vanderpark) lacks focus. During their drive to work, Nick demonstrates his tendency to try to imagine inventions, which culminates in the concept of a spray that makes dog feces vanish into thin air.

Wallace & Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

For lovers of The Wrong Trousers and Chicken Run has (long since) come a new Wallace and Gromit movie, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. W&G have quit their jobs as window-washers and are now the veg(etable) protectors of the "Anti-Pesto" company, whose primary line of work is capturing vegetable-consuming rabbits and "humanely" removing them from people's gardens. Their town is host to a giant vegetable competition, in which even Gromit is a competitor. The competition's hostess Lady Tottington hires Anti-Pesto to solve the rabbit problem, but a giant rabbit suddenly appears and begins to ravage the town's veg plots.

The Fast and the Furious - Tokyo Drift

As an import car aficionado, it was pretty much mandatory that I see all of the Fast and the Furious movies - but as a long-time Nissan/Datsun fan, I was deeply disappointed in the first two, in which barely a Nissan is spotted aside from the Skyline. Oh, there's a couple 240SXs off in the background, but you only ever even get a good look at one of them. However, it's widely accepted that Nissan has made the majority of the best drift cars, and so this movie does not share this particular failing.
