The trailer for Open Water : "Based on true events, 'Open Water' follows an American couple on an island holiday. Upon arrival at their hotel, we learn that their relationship is under strain from their workaholic lifestyles, and they need a vacation even more than they realized. The next morning, the loving and rested couple, certified scuba divers, board a local dive boat for an underwater tour of the reef. The boat is crowded with other vacationers, and due to a series of innocent miscommunications and a distracted crew, the couple is, after only 40 minutes or so underwater, accidentally left behind. What follows is the story of their ordeal: cold, alone and miles from land, the couple is adrift in shark-infested waters."

The trailer for Silver City : "From John Sayles, one of the essential, iconoclastic voices of American independent cinema, comes 'Silver City,' a film that is equal parts scathing political lampoon and sun-stunned neo-noir detective story"

CNN looks at Baadasssss! Sadly, Baadasssss!, a very entertaining and interesting flick, got lost in the summer movie shuffle, but I've taken on a personal quest to keep reminding people about it. Here are my comments.

George Steinbrenner wishes he had a Big Unit. It has to be killing him that he lost a very available Beltran to the Astros after essentially losing Clemens to the same team. You know he's gonna do something crazy like trading for Bonds or Thome or Randy or Jason Schmidt or something insane like that. You just know it.

SAD: Star Trek's "Scotty" has retired from public life in response to the onset of Alzheimer's. James Doohan, a veteran of the D-Day landing in Europe, is 84. He was vigorous enough to father a new baby just four years ago, but apparently his engines kunna stan' the str-r-rain.

Vatican officials told the American Bishops that voters are free to support pro-abortion politicans without sinning, if they support them for other policies. Oh, I don't know. This is all pretty indirect and too subtle for me. Why didn't they just instruct Catholics to vote for Kerry, under threat of eternal damnation?

More on "Fight Club, the Musical" Am I the only one who thinks this is a hoax? Fight Club's author, Chuck Palahniuk, has an official web site, but he doesn't mention this.
  • The first rule of Fight Club is that we don't talk about fight club
  • The second rule? Even though we don't talk, we sing, sing, sing!!!

The dumbest human beings in sports? The members of the LPGA. Get this. Michelle Wie increases their media presence and attendance significantly, thus making their purses bigger, and increasing thier potential TV revenues. Furthermore, Wie is an amateur, which means that as she's increasing the total purse, she's earning none of it for herself. To word it another way, Michelle Wie, basically a little girl, is paying the other members of the LPGA a lot of money so that she can play with them. Their reaction? They don't like it. Huh?? Frankly, even Mike Tyson could figure out that this is a sweet deal.

Academic models predict a Bush landslide victory in November. Super models, however, think Kerry will kick ass. As for Kerry himself, the stealth candidate's face hasn' been seen in months, except on milk cartons.

Moore's enemies offer Fahrenheit 9/11 for free. I have to say that these lads are not the brightest bulbs on the tree. "Let's see, boys. His film is propaganda (check), we oppose his ideas (check), so let's give it for free to the entire world (check)." Makes a lot of sense, doesn't it? That may cause some (minor) economic pain to distributors and theater owners, but it sure as hell doesn't hurt Moore, who cares less about the money than getting his message to the world and unseating the President. They get the Bill O'Reilly Publicity Award, named after the Fox News personality who single-handedly turned Al Franken's incredibly lame book into a national best seller by making the whole world aware of it for free. Except these guys are far duller than O'Reilly, who did not commit a crime in the process!
  • Moore himself is supposed to have said, “I don’t agree with the copyright laws, and I don’t have a problem with people downloading the movie and sharing it with people. As long as they’re not doing it to make a profit, you know, as long as they’re not trying to make a profit off my labor.”
  • It is not clear when or whether Moore actually said that, but Moore's distributors certainly do not agree with his sentiments, and will seek prosecution.

Can it be true? Something interesting happens in Norway! In Bergen, one of the world's most beautiful small cities, a man has an $882 picture hanging on his wall for 23 years - then finds out by accident that it may have been painted by Titian.

Back in my day, light wasn't anywhere near as fast. And we liked it that way. No wonder my dad was able to outrun it in that famous race. Actually, he lost the race. He claims he would have won, but he had such a big lead that he stopped at Denny's for the Grand Slam Breakfast, and ended up losing by a hair. To his dying day, he insisted he would have outrun light if he'd eaten the regular breakfast instead of the Grand Slam.

Cheney to Girl Scouts: "Eat Me". Cheney spokesman Bob Farvit later said that the vice president had not apologized for what he said, but "felt tons better" after saying it. President Bush said, "The vice-president is pretty funny for a bald guy. Now watch this drive."

FLIP-flops can make men impotent. In a related story, John Kerry purchased a record-setting amount of Viagra.
