How to tell you're a serious golfer? You play this ball rather than take a penalty stroke.

Antonio Banderas has joined Jennifer Lopez in the indie thriller BORDERTOWN. Oh, I know that cast seems like a red flag, but the film might actually be good. Maybe. The director is Gregory Nava, who is the best director nobody ever heard of. El Norte and Mi Familia are excellent movies, but Nava sort of pigeonholed himself as a specialist in Latino movies, and he hasn't made a movie in many years. Nava completed the last turn-off on the road to obscurity when his last movie wasn't much good in a city where you're only as good as your last movie.

Four clips of Jiminy Glick in La La Wood . And, I might add, four of the most irritating clips ever seen, despite charming, good natured, self deprecating appearances by Kurt Russell and wacko director David Lynch. Glick's wife is played by SNL alumna Jan Hooks. You know, I've always oppposed eugenics, but I sure hope they've sterilized Martin Short.

Two trailers and two new clips for Ladies in Lavender
  • "Set in picturesque coastal Cornwall, in a tight-knit fishing village in the 1930's, 'Ladies in Lavender' boasts the cream of British acting talent as Oscar and BAFTA award-winners Dame Judi Dench ('Iris,' 'Chocolat,' recent 'James Bond' films) and Dame Maggie Smith ('Gosford Park,' 'Tea with Mussolini,' the 'Harry Potter' films) play the leading roles of sisters Ursula (Dench) and Janet Widdington (Smith). Rising German talent and award-winning Daniel Bruhl ('Goodbye Lenin!') plays Andrea. A gifted young Jewish violinist from Krakow, Andrea is bound for America when he is swept overboard by a fierce storm. When the Widdington sisters discover the handsome and mysterious stranger on the beach below their house, they nurse him back to health. However, the presence of the musically talented young man disrupts the peaceful lives of Ursula and Janet and the community in which they live."

The trailer and four clips from Up for Grabs
  • "Michael Wranovics' 'Up for Grabs' might have been considered the next can't-miss mock-umentary, except it's all REAL. This bitingly funny picture exposes the custody fight that erupted over Barry Bonds' record-setting 73rd home run ball. From the embattled litigants who wouldn't settle, to the impassioned eyewitnesses and their contradictory accounts, to the bemused reporters who covered the bizarre case, Wranovics presents a rich cast of characters who prove that truth is funnier than fiction. With all the farcical qualities of 'This is Spinal Tap' or 'Best in Show,' 'Up for Grabs' invites us to laugh, and sometimes cringe, at the outrageous behavior of two grown men chasing down an elusive pot of gold. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Los Angeles Film Festival, 'Up for Grabs' tells a tale of absurdity that will leave you muttering 'only in America.'"

That movie sucked. No where near the caliber of the other films you cite. It drags and doesnt provide any insight into the legal issue of rightful ownership or property rights. Boring. Its a rental at best...

The first ten minutes and six thousand additional clips from XXX: State of the Union . Once again, the film invokes subset B of the Mudd's Robots Paradox in that the sum total of its clips is actually far longer than the film itself. Therefore, if you watch the film, it is merely a preview of the clips. This is a clear proof that, in fact, time does curve back upon itself, thus implying not only that General Relativity may be valid, but General Custer as well.

The trailer for George A. Romero's Land of the Dead
  • ""George A. Romero's Land of the Dead" is the acclaimed director's long-awaited return to the horror genre he invented, beginning with the seminal "Night of the Living Dead" and continuing with "Dawn of the Dead" and "Day of the Dead". In this new tale, Romero creates a harrowing vision of a modern-day world where the walking dead roam an uninhabited wasteland and the living try to lead "normal" lives behind the walls of a fortified city. A new society has been built by a handful of enterprising, ruthless opportunists, who live in the towers of a skyscraper, high above the hard-scrabble existence on the streets below. But outside the city walls, an army of the dead is evolving. Inside, anarchy is on the rise. With the very survival of the city at stake, a group of hardened mercenaries is called into action to protect the living from an army of the dead."

Tom Cruise is dating Katie Holmes. Katie certainly climbed the Hollywood food chain rapidly from Chris Klein to The Cruiser. The only think that surprises me about this is ... isn't Katie supposed to be kinda ... how do I word this delicately ... "intelligent"? Maybe I am wrong about that but if she is, what does she discuss with Cruise? I guess they haven't made it to the "talking" stage yet.

Five clips from Crash
  • A Brentwood housewife and her DA husband. A Persian store owner. Two police detectives who are also lovers. A black television director and his wife. A Mexican locksmith. Two car-jackers. A rookie cop. A middle-aged Korean couple... They all live in Los Angeles. And in the next 36 hours, they will all collide... A provocative, unflinching look at the complexities of racial conflict in America, "Crash" is that rare cinematic event – a film that challenges audiences to question their own prejudices. Diving headlong into the diverse melting pot of post-9/11 Los Angeles, this compelling urban drama tracks the volatile intersections of a multi-ethnic cast, examining fear and bigotry from multiple perspectives as characters careen in and out of one another’s lives. No one is safe in the battle zones of intolerance. And no one is immune to the simmering rage that sparks violence – and changes lives... Funny, powerful, and always unpredictable, "Crash" boldly explores the gray area between black and white, victim and aggressor...and finds no easy solutions."
