Famed French actor Gerard Depardieu says in a newspaper interview that he's ending his film career - and swears he wasn't drunk when he said it. For once.

How much worse could it get for the Vikings?
  • Opposing players are doing TD celebrations by pretending to be on a boat.
  • The team is getting blown out. They were down 24-0 at halftime, accumulating only 76 total yards.
  • "Minnesota coach Mike Tice said the team feared Culpepper will miss the rest of the season."

The 90 second trailer for BloodRayne, Ewe Boll's latest.
  • What an amazingly eclectic cast! T-X, Mr Blonde, and Gandhi head up the cast, and the minor players include Billy Zane, Meat Loaf, Udo Kier, and Eddie the Cruiser.
  • It seems that Gandhi has now entered the Aging John Gielgud portion of his career, in which he will be required to wear a silly wig, or at least a silly hat, in every role.

Boll has yet to make a decent film. I'm not optimstic about this one...I fell asleep during the trailer.

And why did Loken get 5th billing?

Bill Shatner tells his Secrets. This is a very funny comedy bit. I think it is originally from Conan's show.

What? They didn't cut the blooper out? I guess it is funnier than his jokes.

"BUSH STRIPS LIBBY OF NICKNAME" ... Renames Cheney Aide "Lying Bastard" In Secret White House Ceremony
  • According to a White House source, the president takes nicknames “very seriously” and therefore stripping a staffer of his playful moniker is the greatest punishment that Mr. Bush can levy on a subordinate who has found disfavor with him. “It’s something all of us dread,” said the source, whose own nickname is Chatty.
  • According to Professor Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota’s School of Law, Mr. Libby’s new nickname could come back to haunt him when his case eventually goes to trial: “When you put your hand on the Bible and say, ‘I, Lying Bastard Libby, swear to tell the truth,’ that could potentially hurt you with a jury.”

Weekend box office - Saw II shows some teeth.
  • The overall box office, as measured by the top twelve films this year versus the top twelve last year, was down 7%, but (a) that was a major improvement over last week (b) Saw II was a major exception.
  • Saw II was the winner of the week, with a thirty million dollar opening. That was about 50% better than expected, and about 65% better than Saw's debut last Halloween.
  • According to Mojo, Saw II was made for four million dollars. Wow! That'll make a buck or two.
  • Unfortunately, the success of the Saw sequel seems to have cannibalized from other films. Compared to the predictions made by Box Office Mojo, Saw 2th was the only film to exceed expectations.
  • The other new releases were just slightly off target, and all finished within the range established by Weekend Warrior and Box Office Mojo.
  • The carry-overs got killed. The big loser of the week was Doom, which entered record-setting territory by dropping from $15.5 million to $4.0. It dropped 73.8% from its first weekend to its second. Among films with an opening weekend above $10 million, this is the second worst performance of all time, exceeded only by Star Trek: Nemesis.
  • My guess is that Saw II and Doom share the same target market, and those moviegoers devoured the fresher meat. If they hadn't already seen Doom, they chose Saw II instead - a logical choice since it's a horror movie, and it is Halloween weekend. But I'm just speculating.
  • Capote and "Good Night, and Good Luck" continued to pull in solid revenues per screen in limited runs.

"Saw 2th" ...


That's funny. The people who named the movie should have thought of that.
