Woman Files Complaint After Doctor Tells Her She's Obese
  • Irony #1: the patient complained because her doctor spoke plainly and directly when he told her how to get healthy!
  • Irony #2: the patient complained because the doctor said he didn't want to take any more of her money!
  • Irony #3: the Attorney General's Office tried to get the doctor to settle the matter by agreeing to attend a medical education course, so he could learn to confuse patients with weasel-words and arcane medical jargon, to understate their need to change unhealthy behavior, and to take more of their money!! Now THAT'S proper professional behavior.

DC Comics wants Batman and Robin Back In The Closet
  • The Kathleen Cullen Fine Art gallery in New York City has been running an exhibition of the work of Mark Chamberlain since February. The exhibition came to a screeching halt recently in spite of the brisk sales of many of the pieces exhibited. The subjects of the pictures Chamberlain was exhibiting were as controversial as they were obvious — uncompromisingly homoerotic depictions of Batman and Robin.

The New York Times offers a new explanation for the box office slump: a lot of this year's movies suck. Yes, that explains the failure of Stealth, but it does not explain why Cinderella Man failed, or why Michael Bay's best movie did worse this year than his bad ones did in previous years. Of course there have been some product failures, but there is also a "paradigm shift" in progress

Family Guy has fun with AIDS. This program has upset many advocacy groups. “There is nothing comical about a person lying in a hospital bed dying of AIDS or any other disease. Fox owes people living with HIV/AIDS and their families an immediate apology.”

The trailer for Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain
  • "An epic love story set against the sweeping vistas of Wyoming and Texas, Brokeback Mountain tells the story of two young men, a ranch-hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection, one whose complications, joys and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love."
  • Cowboys who have to hide the love that dare not speak its name? Could there be a more blatant Oscar grab?
  • If you think the official description sounds syrupy, wait until you hear the music. I'd call it The Cider House Rules Again, but this makes Lasse Hallström's movies seem like kick-ass redneck fun! On the other hand, major talent lurks beneath the surface. Annie Proulx wrote the story and Larry McMurtry co-wrote the screenplay.

The trailer for Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance
  • "Ryu (Ha-kyun Shin), a young factory worker, has recently quit art school in order to look after his sister, who is dying a slow, agonizing death for want of a kidney. When a doctor tells Ryu that he is an unsuitable donor and that the chances of finding one is slim, Ryu turns to the black market. But the old lady who runs an underground organ ring cheats him, taking both his life savings and his kidney and leaving him without the kidney she promised in exchange. Ryu's girlfriend, a Raggedy-Ann leftist named Youngmin (Du-na Bae), urges Ryu to kidnap the four-year-old daughter of industrialist owner Park Dong-Jin (Kang-ho Song), who recently laid off Ryu and many other workers from his factory. Ryu agrees, but just as the plan is on the verge of success, Ryu's sister discovers what Ryu and Youngmin have been up to, and kills herself in despair. Compounding the tragedy, Ryu loses track of his little illicit charge during a visit to his childhood haunts, and she drowns in the river Ryu and his sister played in as kids. Dong-jin's deep grief quickly turns to rage and he embarks on an implacable quest for vengeance. At the same time, Ryu goes after the organ traders, knowing that if they had come through, none of the tragic occurrences would ever have happened. Bound by their common sense of loss and deep-seated anger, the two are on a collision course of revenge."

The international trailer from Wolf Creek
  • "A chilling, factually-based, story of three road-trippers in remote Australia who are plunged into danger when they accept help from a friendly local."
  • And by "factually-based," they mean Australia really does exist! Or so they want us to believe.

Wolf Creek is loosely based on backpacker murderer Ivan Milat.

It remains to be seen how close to fact the movie stays.

Ben Affleck goes back to writing. I know it sounds weird to say out loud, but Affleck is an Oscar winner - for writing. He has a TV series and a movie in the pipeline.

This week's movies: The Brothers Grimm - 42% positive reviews.
  • Polarized reviews, ranging from "Gilliam is a film artist with a grand and copious vision that he incorporates into every frame of every film like a potion" to "Mr. Gilliam has no clear idea what he's doing, so the movie is nothing more than noise, costumes and disjointed special effects that do not make an acceptable substitute for the sense of tempo the rest of the film sorely lacks."
