A bunch of new clips from Hero. "At the end of China's Warring States, the Kingdom of Qin is the most ruthless and ambitious of the seven states. It's King is the target of assassins from all over China. Of all the would-be assassins, Broken Sword, Flying Snow and Sky are the most dangerous. When Nameless kills all three, he is offered a chance to meet the King. Namesless explains to the King that how he used their personal relationships to expose and attack their weaknesses, but the King tells a different version of the same story."

The trailer for Kung Fu Hustle. "Set in Canton, China in the 1940s, the story revolves around a hapless wannabe gangster who aspires to become a member of the notorious "Axe Gang." Other characters include an obnoxious landlady and her apparently frail husband who exhibit extraordinary powers in defending their turf.

A new clip from Wicker Park. "Intricately moving back and forth in time and revealing the story from each character's perspective, Wicker Park is an intense psychological drama about a man (Hartnett) caught in an obsessive search for a woman he fell deeply in love with - a woman who then vanished without a trace. Two years after her disappearance, he catches a fleeting glimpse of her in a local bar and begins a twisting search to find her and discover what really happened."

Boring story. Great headline. Cardinals reliever suspended 10 days for putting a foreign substance on his balls.

Best Women's Olympic Volleyball picture yet. Howard Stern should sponsor their tour.

BBC NEWS: the funniest Briton of all time.
  • Here's something scary about the once-proud British Empire. In the entire history of their country, only 12 men have been funnier than Mr Bean. I don't believe I can name an American less funny than Rowan Atkinson. Not even Pauly Shore. Maybe Dick Cheney.
  • Amazingly, the guy I would have picked, Peter Cook, didn't even make the list, nor did Eric Idle, or Michael Palin.

All very strange, a bunch of dead, lame comedians dominating the list. Then you realise it's a Readers Digest poll (target demographic: 80+) and it starts to make perfect sense.

you obviously haven't seen Rowan Atkinson in Blackadder - comedy genius. What is it with you yanks? you adore our comedy, yet you didn't get Blackadder, one of the greatest sitcoms we've ever made. It's our Seinfeld and it's sad that your only knowledge of Atkinson comes from Mr Bean!

I agree completely about Blackadder

I have The Complete Blackadder set on DVD, and it surely is one of the five best comedy series of all time, from any country. It is nearly impossible to overpraise it, for it is not only funny, but is also scathing social saire, brilliant history, and can even be very touching (the last WW1 episode).

But that doesn't change the fact that Rowan is Mr Bean and Johnny English.

This is pretty cool. A short comedy called "Always Late". The 48 Hour Film Project is an international competition where at 7:PM on Friday night, teams of filmmakers are handed a GENRE, CHARACTER NAME, LINE OF DIALOGUE, and a PROP. All 4 must appear in their film and it must be written, shot, edited and rurned in by 7:PM on Sunday. Check out the parameters they were given, then watch their film
