The trailer for Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance
  • "As the film opens, a radio announcer reads a foreboding message sent in by the deaf mute Ryu, an intense young man who has a dead end job in a smelting factory. Ryu idolizes his sister who is in urgent need of a kidney transplant. When he is fired from his job and is tricked out of his savings by organ traffickers, his trashy loud-mouthed girlfriend Yeong-mi suggests kidnapping his boss's daughter Yu-sun for ransom to pay for his sister's transplant. What starts as a desperate attempt to help his sister leads to a high stakes game of revenge between Ryu and his former boss Park Dong-jin (played by Song Kang-ho of Mr. Park's JSA and The Foul King) that soon escalates into a modern day Greek tragedy."

Here is the international trailer for Rent
  • "Based on Puccini's classic opera La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's revolutionary rock opera 'Rent' tells the story of a group of Bohemians struggling to live and pay their rent in the gritty background of New York's East Village. 'Measuring their lives in love,' these starving artists strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, ilness and the AIDS epidemic. One of the longest running shows on Broadway, 'Rent' was the winner of the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Obie Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, four Tony Awards and three Drama Desk awards."

Four clips, the trailer, and a featurette for The Great Raid.
  • "Set in the Philippines in 1945, "The Great Raid" tells the true story of the men of the 6th Ranger Battalion, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Henry Mucci (Bratt), who undertake a daring rescue mission against all odds. Traveling thirty miles behind enemy lines, the 6th Ranger Battalion aims to liberate over 500 American prisoners-of-war from the notorious Cabanatuan Japanese POW camp resulting in the most audacious rescue ever."

Totalitarian Art
  • The submitter wrote: I knew about Hitler's plans to rebuild Berlin. What I didn't know was that Stallin had plans for Moscow that dwarfed Hitler's Berlin. In particular the Palace of the Soviets was designed to be quite a bit larger than the Empire State Building. Stallin did get as far as demolishing the Cathedral of Christ the Savior to make room for it. Here I quote. "The total height of the building was planned at 415 meters (1365 feet), taller than the Empire State Building, the tallest building at that time. The Palace would have housed several museums, the main and secondary auditoriums, with lower and underground levels given to the traffic handling, storage, and technical equipment. The building was supposed to give an impression of an enormous ladder to the sky. The utilitarian purpose of the building was to house Congresses of Soviets, likely the World Congress of Soviets."

A gallery of stills from Deuce Bigelow. It has been such a weak summer at the movies that this film is starting to look good to me.

Yet another brilliant BBC headline: Taste test for underwater cheese
  • This is really from BBC, but it is obviously written with tongue deep in cheek.
  • "Cheese-maker Luc Boivin threw cheese in the Baie des Ha! Ha! late last year, believing it would improve the taste. However, food hygiene inspectors say Mr Boivin cannot sell his cheese without rigorous health testing. And before it can be sold, it must be found, and divers have so far failed."
  • By the way, there really is a "Baie des Ha ! Ha !" in Quebec.

The Ultimate Guide to Weight Training for Badminton. For once I believe the blurb: "The Ultimate Guide to Weight Training for Badminton is the most comprehensive and up-to-date badminton-specific training guide in the world today." I had no idea that badminton players trained so hard. I figured they just took steroids like other athletes.

The most foul-mouthed movie ever
  • I don't know if you noticed it on last weekend's Box Office Mojo, but The Aristocrats placed #24 despite being on only four screens. It took in an uncanny and astronomical $60,000 per screen. (Perspective is provided by the fact that the box office champ, The Wedding Crashers, was the second best performer in this category, with $6,600 per screen!)

Rafael Palmeiro suspended for steroids. "Palmeiro -- the highest-profile player to fail a test -- said he never intentionally took steroids and could not explain how the drugs got into his body."

The trailer for Three Dancing Slaves
  • "The newest film from French director-writer-actor Gael Morel ('Full Speed,' 'Wild Reeds'), 'Three Dancing Slaves' is an emotionally rich story about three brothers who are each facing a crucial turning point in their lives. As each young brother wrestles with their transition to manhood, they must escape the tyrannical rule of their distant father in order to find their own path for success in their lives. A tragic incident however, sparks a course of events that will test each sibling's sense of self-worth and open up questions about their blossoming desires that could affect their already fragile identities. Stunning cinematography, superb production values and high caliber performances makes 'Three Dancing Slaves' a thoughtful film about relationships, where each character questions their commitments to family and struggles to make their personal imprint in the world around them."

Check out the ad for the DVD of Miss Castaway and the Island Girls. This movie has the greatest cast ever: Michael Jackson, Bob Denver, Anna Nicole Smith, Mr. Myagi, Jerry Lewis, and some ex-Playmates. (Sorry, it is rated PG.) Not to mention Doc from the Love Boat and the Incredible Hulk.

Sienna Miller has landed roles in two major Hollywood films thanks to her profile being raised after fiance Jude Law admitted to an affair with his children's nanny. (Although it sounds silly, this is basically how Elizabeth Hurley became A-list famous.)
