If you are always looking for obscure old movies on DVD, you'll love these guys.
  • You can really find some offbeat crap there. I found the legendary Lawrence Harvey crapfest Welcome to Arrow Beach, which I thought to be lost forever.

Bubba the Love Sponge will be relaunched by Howard Stern
  • Stern has complete control of two 24-hour stations, and Mr Sponge will be the PM drive guy for one of them.
  • Sirius is making tha big gamble that Stern will eventually be able to bring his twelve million listeners over to satellite. (They estimated that they needed a million new subscribers to break even on the Stern deal, and they already have increased by 1.6 million since signing him.)
  • I have to admit that I will make the move myself, as soon as Howard is in place.

NFL 2005 - Scoreboard
  • San Diego and KC lost, while the Steelers won, leaving those three teams all 8-5, running a dead heat for the sixth and final AFC spot.
  • Same deal in the NFC. Dallas and the Viking both won, the Falcons play Monday night. If the Falcons win, all three teams will be 8-5, fighting for that sixth slot.

Some nice video clips of exposure from fashion models.
  • Don't be put off by the bizarre look of the site, because he has some good material. The only downside is that the clips are hosted by rapidshare, so there is a download limit.

The Filthy Critic reviews The Chronicles of Narnia
  • "It's a shame, really, when adults suck all the life out of a kid's story. They pretend to revere it, but what they really do is worship the profit potential at the expense of the story and the kids. This movie is like a grown up who never opens the action figures he loved as a kid. Yeah, they're worth a lot now, but you sure miss out on all the fun that way."

Weekend Box Office Results, December 9-11, 2005


  • Narnia dazzled, with an opening 25% above expectations. It was the second best December opening of all time. The other three movies in the Top Four are the three installments of Lord of the Rings. Excluding those, the highest December weekend is $46 million, and Narnia did $67!!!
  • The extra Narnia business appears to have been genuine incremental business, not cannibalization from other films. Syriana was not affected by the big Narnia numbers, and the holdovers all performed about as expected. Given the fact that the past two weekends have been within a percent of last year's comparable performances, expectations for this week are defined as "about the same as last year's performance on the same weekend." By that definition, the weekend was about $17 million above expectations. That $17 million came just about directly from the incremental portion of the Narnia business. The ability to bring in new theatergoers without affecting the habitual movie crowd is something we haven't really seen since Passion of the Christ and Fahrenheit 9/11.
  • That's kind of interesting since much has been made about the religious allegory in Narnia, and its parallels to Passion of the Christ. I wonder if it has been talked up and promoted by church groups, like Passion.
  • The weekend was 17% above last year. Record-breaking performances from Potter and Narnia have made some real progress in salvaging a disappointing year, and one can't help but think that the widely-hyped King Kong will do even better.
