I hang my head in shame over my absence from Battle Royale these past couple weeks despite repeated promises of bustling activity, and I’ve no adequate excuse apart from the fact that I’ve been settling back into a 70-hour work week (split between two jobs) and have been very, very pressed for time. The election frenzy is finally over and things will calm down, and in the meantime please accept the meager update I’ve recently offered. More is coming. For reals.

Turning our attention to this column: This week we look at Clint Eastwood’s unforgivably dull “Hereafter,” but next week things look to liven up a bit with Todd Phillips’ “Hangover” follow-up “Due Date” (for further evidence that star Zack Galifianakis rocks, see his recent appearance on “Real Time With Bill Maher,” and read about his reported smackdown against Mel Gibson over “The Hangover 2” — good stuff).

    Now that you have thumbs way down, I can only conclude that it must be a great film... nothing could possible be as boring as trying to get through your analysis.
