Here is the first eight minutes of H
  • "Shin Hyun (Seung-woo Cho) walks into the local police station toting the mutilated bodies of six missing women, confesses to the murders and accepts his fate. A psychopathic serial killer is caught and the case closed. Or is it? One year later, the bodies of two high school girls and a pregnant woman are discovered, killed in the same manner. Believed to be a copy-cat crime, detectives Kim Mi Yun (Jung-ah Yum, A Tale of Two Sisters) and Kang Tae Hyun (Jin-hee Ji), polar opposites both professionally and personally, are assigned to the case. As the investigation continues, new suspects are taken into custody, but the body count continues to rise. It soon seems that no one, not even the detectives themselves, are beyond suspicion."

Is it possible to recall past lives through hypnosis?
  • Yes. I know this from personal experience. As I have pointed out many times, I have clear memories of my life as an Aztec warrior. As you may know, the Aztecs would cut out the hearts of the winners of their annual games and sacrifice them to the gods. This was necessary because those gods wanted hearts and would only accept the best ones. I still hold the Aztec record for having finished second in the games 21 consecutive years, including one year when I blew a 30 yard lead in the 100 yard dash. After that race I told the reporter from the Aztec Times that I was going to train extra hard next year so that I would be the lucky one to get my heart cut out. Of course, when he was out of sight, I fired up a Lucky Strike.

When girls and boys wrestle together.
  • Interesting story. Public schools have girls on their wrestling teams. Religious schools won't let their boys wrestle against them because of the inappropriate touching. (But apparently inappropriate touching of other boys is OK.) Anyway, the parents of the girls are ticked off, although their kid gets the W and accumulates the points toward the state title, while the other wrestler clearly has the right to forfeit if he chooses to. Frankly, I don't see how any harm is done, or how the league could do anything about it ... as the league president says ""I don't care if it's a religious school or not. If a person chooses not to wrestle, they don't have to wrestle."
  • Although, now that I think about it, I think I would approve of a new law which would force boys to wrestle with girls whether they want to or not. That is my kind of law. And then we need one that forces girls to wrestle with other girls whenever the constable so declares. Or better yet, whenever I so declare. Let's start with Jessica Alba and Eva Longoria. (Blows whistle)

Reminds me of the only wrestling match that I attended in high school. We had heard that the homecoming queen from the rival school was wrestling on the JV team. I remember that she was beautiful in a Jessica Alba/Kristin Kreuk type way (she was Latina). Our guy didn't seem to have much trouble with her, but let the match go on as long as possible. When he was done, he had to bend over, ostenibly to catch his breath ... but we all knew that he was trying to hide his erection.

Traditional healer burnt by goblins
  • As most of you know, tsikamutanda healers can get rid of witches and tikoloshis, but are powerless against goblins! This is why I gave up my career as a tsikamutanda. Well, that and the fact that I didn't know how to pronounce tsikamutanda. Well, and also the fact that there isn't really much tsikamutanda work available in Central Texas. I would have had to move to Lubbock or Baton Rouge to establish a decent tsikamutanda practice. And there is really no sense in leaving Texas for Louisiana because their voodoo licensing exams are impossible to pass. Anyway, my motivations aren't important. The key point is that the career change to webmaster reduced my goblin burns by nearly 65%, and had a comparably salubrious impact on my corns and bunions as well!

The trailer and a clip from Lila Says
  • "Lila Says" is based on a book that caused much controversy in France. Nineteen-year-old quiet poet Chimo (Mohammed Khouas) falls for Lila (Vahina Giacante), a gorgeous, blonde girl who just moved in with her creepy aunt in an Arab ghetto. One day Lila asks Chimo to look up her skirt -- if he can handle it. Meanwhile, Mouloud (Karim Benhadou), the loud leader of a rival gang, also sets his sights on Lila. Their game of sexual discovery leads to an unexpected look at tolerance, self-hatred, and machismo. It also questions the fantasy that permeates the film with fun and danger.

The trailer for The Alzheimer Case
  • In "The Alzheimer Case," a creative and visually innovative Belgian noir thriller, aging gun-for-hire Angelo Ledda (Jan Decleir) takes justice into his own hands when he is pushed to the edge by the corruption that surrounds him. Director Erik Van Looy audaciously takes the cliché of the hit man's last job and turns it into a complex psychological drama with a twist. Here the hit man is plagued by the onset of Alzheimer's disease and retribution becomes a race against time as he drifts toward psychic dissolution.

Three clips from Saving Face
  • "For 28-year old New Yorker Wilhelmina "Wil" Pang (Michelle Krusiec), life is a juggling act between a promising career as a surgeon and her responsibilities as a dutiful daughter. Like the #7 train she takes to visit her Chinese family on a weekly basis, Wil is perpetually in transit between two worlds. The expectations of the Flushing, Queens society she is from and the desires that alienate her from it have made Wil content to live below the surface -- even if it means playing an inadvertent game of charades with her widowed mother (Joan Chen) and the old world Ma represents. The masquerade is comic even in its pain as Wil tolerates Ma's weekly set ups with eligible Chinese-American boys at the Friday Chinese socials; but it quickly becomes a farce when Ma's mask cracks first. One night, Wil comes home to find Ma on her doorstep - pregnant. Disgraced by the Chinese community, and with nowhere else to go, Ma moves in with her daughter, making it difficult for Wil to nurture a budding relationship with gorgeous dancer Vivian (Lynn Chen). As her carefully compartmentalized worlds collide, Wil is forced to find her mother a husband, placate her girlfriend, and choose between breaking a cycle of keeping up appearances, or risk losing the girl she loves. "Saving Face" is a romantic comedy about a daughter struggling to understand her mother's heart, which ultimately allows her to understand her own. It is the story of unspoken loves, contemporary and cultural taboos, and the journey of two women towards living their lives honestly."

A jet-lagged Larry Taylor awakens to find two strangers in his bedroom, and over the next ten minutes, will experience the most terrifying - and possibly final - moments of his life. But who these strangers are, and whay they want, can only be determined by events occuring elsewhere, and at the same time. We relive those same ten minutes through the eyes of those connected to what is not a simple home invasion, and with each person, find ourselves propelled closer to the truth."

This reminds me of when I had my then 6 year old son at Disney World. The power for the boat conveyor failed inside the "It's a Small World" ride. Unfortunately, the power to the speakers did not fail. We sat there for over an hour listening to that awful song before the ride got going again.

Every time anyone tried to wade out of the ride, someone from Disney came over the speaker and warned of electrocution danger since they were already having power problems....they could have turned off the music at that point, but they wouldn't.
