This week's movies: The Game of Their Lives - not enough reviews for a score, but two of three reviews are positive, and one of those is VERY positive (9/10): "In this inspiring sports film set in the 1950s, the US World Cup Soccer team rises above insurmountable challenges and defies popular opinion to become champions. "

This week's new movies: A Lot Like Love - 67% positve reviews (Wha???). Some critics really liked the first half of the movie, but the score is misleading. It is based on only nine reviews, and the two "cream of the crop" critics gave it a thumb down. Still and all, it must be better than one would expect.

Poet C.K. Williams, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and many other honors, has been named this year's recipient of the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize.
  • Poetry editor Christian Wiman said, "C.K. Williams is a master at dramatizing complicated psychological states, but he is also always equally concerned with the self's relation to the larger world. More important, his poem was the only entry that didn't begin with 'There was a young man from Nantucket'"

Paris explains why she is no longer friends with Nicole. I can understand. Paris is a Hegelian, and Nicole has been shown to favor the modernist Christianity of Teilhard de Chardin. A philosophical breach like that is almost impossible to mend. Lucklily Pam Anderson is set to intervene, calling them both "stubborn, immature, unenlightened poo-poo heads."
