You rise / You fall
You're down / Then you rise again
What don't kill ya / Make ya more strong
-- "Broken, Beat & Scarred," Metallica
When "Body of Lies" comes out on DVD, some Ridley Scott fanboy is going to make a YouTube highlight reel of the film set to that song. (Let's face it, it'll be me.) I think we can safely say that Leonardo DiCaprio's pretty-boy persona from "Titanic" is dead, dead, dead -- his Roger Ferris spends the entirety of Scott's terrorism thriller broken, beat and scarred, and this on the heels of his gritty turn in "The Departed" and his masterful characterization in "The Aviator."

Sen. Biden and Gov. Palin go head to head:
Democrat Dan Seals probably made his greatest strides in his 2006 run against U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk by hammering for supporting the Iraq war.
That was the mid-term election that saw Dems sweep into power largely on the public's dissatisfaction with the war.
This time around, the economy is taking top billing for most voters, but Seals is still hitting Kirk on Iraq.
In a new broadcast ad starting today, an unnamed Iraq war veteran says Kirk was "irresponsible" in voting for the war and then voting to cut veteran health care funding.
"We fought for our country and Mark Kirk turned his back on us," the man says.
Kirk is a Navy Reserve intelligence officer who has served during conflicts in Iraq, Haiti and Bosnia.
