Rob Schneider writes a third rate unfunny letter protesting that a columnist called him a third rate comic. Touche, Robbo! You showed him! Actually, I found several errors in this article:
  • It states that Ron Schneider is a third-rate comic. Obviously not true. Even a third-rate comic would have to be funny in order to be called a comic at all.
  • It also states that Rob Schneider is human, a contention which may be true, but for which there is no known evidence.

Five clips from Downfall (Der Untergang).
  • When writer-producer Bernd Eichinger read the galleys of historian Joachim Fest's book "Der Untergang" ("The Downfall: Inside Hitler's Bunker, The Last Days of the Third Reich"), he knew he had found the dramatic key to a film he had wanted to make for decades, but never thought possible due to its scope. Fess' book focuses on the final days of the Reich, and Eichinger saw that the horrifying epic of Hitler and his people during his twelve years in power was reflected in those last twelve days in the bunker. "The final days tell us a lot about how the mass fanaticism functioned in the regime's earlier years and how it continued to reign until the bitter end," says Eichinger.

    Eichinger read another very important book around the same time he read Fest's; the memoirs of Traudl Junge, Hitler's private secretary ("Until the Final Hour: Hitler's Last Secretary".); which was later made into the documentary "Blind Spot: Hitler's Secretary." "Fest gave me the time frame, Traudl Junge gave me the character who could hold it all together."

    "Downfall" is the first German film to broach the subject of Hitler straight-on since G.W. Pabst's 1956 "Der Letste Akt" ("The Last Act") which was told from the point of view of an ordinary German soldier, played by Oskar Werner. Says director Oliver Hirschbiegel, "In terms of German film history, we are breaking new ground here, since there is no cinematic frame of reference. After reading the book, it was clear to me that if I committed myself, then it would have to be a total and complete commitment, meaning that I was going to spend two years of my life in the Third Reich, with all of those characters and that primitive ideology… My hair stood on end. My wife advised me against it. Yet I noticed that it just wouldn't leave me in peace, and in my heart, before accepting the project, I knew that I had already opened myself up to it."

Here's the trailer for Walk on Water
  • 'Walk on Water' follows Eyal, a fierce Mossad agent (Lior Ashkenazi of 'Late Marriage') and second-generation Holocaust survivor on assignment to track down an aging Nazi war criminal, Alfred Himmelman. Posing as a tour guide, Eyal befriends Himmelman's German grandchildren in Tel Aviv: Pia and her openly gay brother, Axel. What begins as a deceptive mission evolves into a deeply personal and political journey of conflicting ideologies, changing Eyal's view of the world forever."

MTV's trailer for A Lot Like Love, which seesm to be a lot like a movie, except without the entertainment.
  • It takes some people years to fall in love at first sight... "A Lot Like Love" is a romantic comedy about destiny, connection and the frequently fuzzy line between chance friendships and happily ever after. "A Lot Like Love" traces the relationship of Oliver (Ashton Kutcher) and Emily (Amanda Peet) who meet on a flight from Los Angeles to New York seven years ago - each of them declaring that they couldn't be more wrong for each other. Life keeps bringing them back together over the next seven years, but the timing never seems right. As they struggle with their different partners, careers and breakups, they turn from casual acquaintances into trusted friends who can say anything to one another. As they each search for love and a relationship that's not fated for disaster, it takes seven years for Oliver and Emily to figure out that maybe what they really have is something...a lot like love.

Mike Leigh drama 'Vera Drake' scoops more pre-Oscar awards. No offense to Mike, but I don't think he'll need much extra room on his mantel for this year's Oscars.

Panoramas of the surface of the moon. This is incredible. The Danish guy who does all those great panormas of the summit of Everest and city squares in Europe and such has come up with his best yet - he stitched together the photos from Apollo 11- 17 to form panoramic 360s of the surface of the moon. It really gives the illusion of being there, even on a flat screen!

NBA Power Rankings at the break.
  • I didn't know that Shaq called Don Nelson "the Jack Haley of his own era." That's actually a funny line.
  • Funny, but not fair. Nellie was not usually a starter, but was a very valuable player, not one of those guys who comes in when the game is a blow-out. Although he played only half the game in an era when Wilt once averaged 48.5 minutes per game, Nelson scored 15 points per game in 1969-70, playing only 28 minutes per game, shooting 50% from the field. Haley never reached 17 minutes per game or six points per game.
