    While we don't get the appeal of sitting down for four hours and watching a bunch of cars drive around in a circle, apparently, a lot of other people love it so no surprise that the Daytona 500 has -- this year at least -- become a mini-Super Bowl of sorts.

    Scorsese and Luhrmann Go 3-D with Hugo Cabret, The Great Gatsby
