An R-rated international trailer for Factotum
  • (There is a topless woman doing gymnastics in a thong, and a brief look at Matt Dillon's ass.)
  • This is the movie which is said to contain some Marisa Tomei nudity, but I don't think the woman in the trailer is Marisa. (Although I don't know.) It is kinda sexy, whoever it is.
  • Detailed info about the film

Strip club owner raises ire with new sign.
  • "Ire"? So THAT's what they call it.
  • "For years, Howard White has advertised his strip club near Los Angeles International Airport with a not too subtle marquee reading 'Live Nude Nude Nudes. But some tourists and nearby businesses say White has gone too far with his latest pitch for the Century Lounge: a freshly posted sign proclaiming 'Vaginas R' Us.'"

Dukes take the daily box office for Friday, August 5, 2005. They just got in the ol' General Lee and ran away with it, with about as much as the next four films added together.

Can anyone explain to me why Canada, with an overall crime rate lower than the States, has a rape rate 2.4 times as high as the USA, and five times higher than France or England? What is the prevalent theory to explain this?

My guess is that the Canadian legal and social system is more sympathetic to rape reports, and therefore it is reported more there, but actually occurs more here.

It's a known fact that canadian women are prettier than the not so bad americans, but then again who want's to give it up to canadian men? that paired with more alcohol in beer makes explains that number.

It's colder in the great white north, which forces the women to be hidden under too many layers of clothing most of the year. Plus, there's only so much hockey and curling that you can watch before you go looking for some better entertainment....

Lumberjacks get lonely ya know. Just like in the Monty Python skit, he just wanted the womens clothing to dress up like his dear old ma-ma.

And after he got her clothes off, well you know.....

And that is the REAL reason.

You're joking right? Ha! You can keep em.

Seriously, I can think of two related reasons. During the 90's, government policy was greatly influenced by feminist analyses of rape. As a result, Canada does not distinguish between rape and other forms of sexual assault--it's all prosecuted as sexual assault, inflating the number of cases compared with other countries. Second, police policy is to prosecute all cases--to prevent charges being dropped due to fear, intimidation, embarassment, etc.

Latino Review has the trailer for Everything is Illuminated, the directorial debut of Liev Schreiber.
  • "Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, 'Everything is Illuminated' tells the story of a young American Jewish man's quest to find the woman who saved his grandfather--in a small Ukrainian town that was wiped off the map by the Nazi invasion. The journey begins as a comic nightmare--with an eccentric trio of paid 'expert' guides sorely lacking in expertise: a cranky grandfather who insists on bringing his unruly seeing-eye dog to help him drive, and his over-enthusiastic grandson, whose fractured command of English, passion for retro American pop culture, and inability to shut up threaten to make the worst of every situation. But what starts out as the tour from hell turns into a surprisingly meaningful journey--with an unexpected and powerful series of revelations that will indelibly change all of their lives."

Eight clips from Pretty Persuasion

Official blurb:

  • Evan Rachel Wood plays Kimberly Joyce, an insanely intelligent, wildly funny, shockingly cruel and sexy-beyond-her-years Beverly Hills teenager who will stop at nothing to become famous. Believing the world is an orchestra and she is the conductor, Kimberly masterfully manipulates all those around her. She convinces her two best friends to join her in a campaign against their befuddled teacher, Mr. Anderson, played to nebbishy perfection by Ron Livingston. Kimberly entangles the entire Beverly Hills community in her carefully woven web of seduction and deceit. A clever comedy with many turns, "Pretty Persuasion" has an ending that nobody but Kimberly can predict!

Europe to ban low-cut blouses on barmaids.
  • According to The Sun, "the ruling is part of the new Optical Radiation Directive — expected to be rubber-stamped by the EU parliament next month."
  • They just gotta do it because "barmaids run a skin cancer risk if they expose themselves to the sun when they go outside to collect glasses."
  • Say, what? Most alcohol is consumed at night, not in the sunlight. Can barmaids wear low-cut tops after sundown?
  • I guess Europe could come up with something this crazy and this intrusive, but am I the only one that smells something fishy in this whole story?
