What most excites me is the production of brand-new 3D Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote shorts that will air before selected Warner Bros. pictures. Yes, they will be rendered in CGI, but we're getting new Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote cartoons!

Trick 'R Treat is a stunningly lifeless and seemingly aimless would-be horror comedy. It is a muted and rushed affair, seemingly edited without discipline and constructed without purpose.
