Like most actors, Tom Cruise can't wait to get the director's chair. Unlike the others however, he just wants to stand on it, so he can do love scenes with Saffron Burrows.

BOROWITZ writes one of his funniest columns: "CHENEY URGES AMERICANS TO SEND HIM THEIR MONEY FOR SAFEKEEPING". The V.P. will protect their assets in his undisclosed location, even investing them wisely in high-yield Halliburton projects, until the threat has passed. ... Funny! I especially like this paragraph:
  • In other terrorism news, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge announced today that the Homeland Security Department would soon replace the much-maligned terror alert color code with an official cry of “wolf.” Mr. Ridge demonstrated five different cries of “wolf” to correspond to the various threat levels, from a barely audible whisper of “wolf” meaning “low” to a full-throated scream of “wolf” indicating “severe.” “These new wolf cries will go into effect tomorrow, assuming there is a tomorrow,” Mr. Ridge said.

Wrasslin.com says Chyna sex tape will be released shortly. You have to read about the details of the tape. It sounds more like a parody of sex tapes. They perform in superhero costumes, with twirling swords, and more.

I hate political nutbags of all stripes, but you have to admire the sheer obsessive dedication of the political nutbags at World Net Daily. Here is their headline on Catwoman - "Lesbian scene nixed because Bush president?"

Information on the nudity in the Broadway revival of "After the Fall", which features Carla Gugino in the ersatz Marilyn Monroe role.
  • Reviewed by Hollywood Reporter's Frank Scheck
  • The New York Daily News talks about "acting in Marilyn's shadow", and mentions Gugino's brief nudity
  • Our own correspondent on the scene has this to say:
    "I saw the performance this afternoon (Weds. 8/4 matinee) and I have my own review. Ultimately, the papers seem to be right on about the show. Peter Krause almost seems to be along for the ride for much of the show, almost a victim of circumstances ... er, the women in his life. The show also has a dated feeling to it with references to McCarthyism that are barely developed but never really explored. It feels as if there were perhaps three plays that could have been made out of this script and instead it was condensed down to one 2 hour 15 minute performance.



    The second act was dominated by the relationship between Peter Krause's Quentin and Carla Gugino's Maggie. While Carla Gugino does a wonderful job, you never get out of your mind that you are voyeuristically watching the relationship of Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe. Give Gugino blonde hair (instead of the red she sports) and it is Marilyn down to the the breathy voice, pill popping and alcohol drinking. With all that being said, I was never bored during the performance.



    Carla Gugino strips down to her bra and underwear, front and center stage, early in the second act. Later in the second act she does a quick onstage wardrobe change in the rear center stage with her back to the audience. She is clearly not wearing anything and you get a brief view of her ass and if you are towards the sides you may get a brief view of side breast. She also spends the last third of the second act in a red nightgown that shows tons of cleavage. Unfortunately, she is in the pill popping, alcohol drinking stage of the performance so it isn't all that hot.

This week's movies: Code 46 - 64% positive.
  • Don't be fooled by the score. In this case you need to look beneath the surface to determine whether you will like this sci-fi story. The critics are sharply divided between love and hate. Some people say it is an unqualified masterpiece. Others say it is as pointless as it is pretentious. Both admirers and detractors compared it to Solaris.
  • On the nudity front, James Berardinelli asked, "Why is there a gratuitous crotch shot of Samantha Morton, when the film is otherwise devoid of nudity?".

This week's movies: Open Water - 78% positive reviews.
  • "This micro-budget suspense film generates more actual tension than nine out of 10 Hollywood thrillers."
  • "Whether or not anyone enjoys it, few will fail to describe it as a 'nailbiter.' That it certainly is."
  • "The film's best scene, from both an artistic and a suspense standpoint, occurs after dark, during a thunderstorm. Kentis elects not to use artificial lighting, so the only time we see the characters is when a flash of lightning illuminates them and the sharks that are circling them. Increasingly louder crashes of thunder momentarily obscure all sound, including the possible screams of one of the characters as the sharks move in. It's a chilling, unsettling five minutes, and, even if nothing else in Open Water had worked, this sequence alone would make the film worth consideration of a recommendation."
  • On the nudity front, Mr Skin says there is some nudity from newcomer Blanchard Ryan

Nine new clips from National Treasure: "Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage stars as the brilliant Benjamin Franklin Gates, third generation treasure hunter. All his life, Gates has been searching for a treasure no one believed existed: amassed through the ages, moved across continents, to become the greatest treasure the world has ever known. Hidden by our Founding Fathers, they left clues to the Treasure's location right before our eyes... from our nation's birthplace, to the nation's capitol, to clues buried within the symbols on the dollar bill. Gates' life-long journey leads him to the last place anyone thought to look: a map hidden on the back of the Declaration of Independence. But what he thought was the final clue is only the beginning. As word of the invisible map spreads among the enemies of freedom, Gates realizes in order to protect the world's greatest treasure, he must now do the unthinkable: steal the most revered, best guarded document in American history before it falls into the wrong hands. In a race against time, Gates must elude the FBI, stay one step ahead of his ruthless adversary (Sean Bean), decipher the remaining clues and unlock the 2000 year-old mystery behind our greatest national treasure."
