The Trailer for Three (2004) Billy Zane and Kelly Brook star. 3 people marooned on a desert island, only one will survive. I don't know how they got on that island, but ... I dare to dream ... could this be Billy Zane's fourth sinking ship movie? (Titanic, Dead Calm, Cleopatra)

Five clips and the trailer from The Edukators
  • Jan, Peter and Jule are living out their rebellious youth. They are united by their passion to change the state of the world. Jan and Peter become "The Edukators," mysterious perpetrators who non-violently warn the local rich their "days of plenty are numbered." Complications follow when vulnerable Jule ends up falling for both young men. Reckless choices result in danger. An operation gone wrong and what was never intended to be a kidnapping brings the three young idealists face-to-face with the values of the generation in power
  • "Bande-annonce" means "trailer"; "passer l'intro" is obvious, but in case it doesn't register, it means "skip the intro"

Texas Bigfoot Research Center

A Cincinnati man has been charged with public indecency for exposing his breasts. One must concede that his arrest is a fair, impartial application of a very silly law. Why DO we have laws that prevent women from showing their breasts? We should have laws forbidding women from covering them! Except in certain cases. I'll let Rosie O'Donnell have a waiver.

A featurette about Poseidon
  • "When a rogue wave capsizes a luxury cruise ship in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, a small group of survivors find themselves unlikely allies in a battle for their lives. As the unstable vessel rapidly floods with water, they face unimaginable odds and life-altering decisions in their desperate fight to the surface."
  • This film violates one of the most important of the Scoopian Unities of Time and Place and Nudity 'n Shit. I've theorized before that there is only one kind of movie which should be remade: a pretty good movie that should have been great. Even narrowing the criteria in that way can produce total disasters like Rollerball, but at least it is a good starting point. Having said that, and even admitting that other criteria may be valid, it is hard for me to envision any good reason to remake The Poseidon Adventure, unless it involves Jessica Alba and Salma Hayek naked.
  • The film also violates another, more obscure section of the Scoopian Unities. It has a sinking ship, and no Billy Zane.
  • This is being directed by the guy who did Das Boot. I guess he's really into "rogue waves", because he also directed The Perfect Storm.

Human footprints discovered beside an ancient Mexican lake have been dated to 40,000 years ago. If the finding survives the controversy it is bound to stir up, it means that humans must have moved into the New World at least 30,000 years earlier than previously thought, and at least a few months before the beginning of Cher's farewell tour.

Vince Vaughn has dismissed reports that he is "dating" Jennifer Aniston.
  • "There's no dating, per se," said the comedy star, "I'm just tappin' that sweet ass. I mean I'm pummelin' that poontang in ways and places Brad Pitt never dreamed of. That girl is gettin' it all: Dirty Sanchez, Cleveland Steamer, Baltimore Bottom, Louisiana Leapfrog, Oakland Auger, Atlanta Asshat, Rear-view Mirror, Head Adair, the ol' Kool-Aid Kids - even the highly dreaded Crazy Straws."
  • Sigh, what he really said was so-o-o-o boring.

Brad Pitt eyed for Van Gogh biopic. According to the New York Post, Ron Howard and Brian Glazer want Pitt to play the lead role in the movie which will have "a new angle." Yeah, I'd say having Van Gogh be a buffed-up hunk would be a new angle. Oh, that Van Gogh! In between the religious crises and the flirtations with insanity and the whole wacky self-mutilation thing, he never missed a chance to work on his abs or score with the hot chicks!
