French voted rudest, most boring people on earth
  • Whoa - there's an upset, eh?
  • Actually, my experience with the French has been mixed. Outside of Paris, I have generally found them fairly nice, and even in Paris, the French are quite pleasant to you if you travel with children. But if you're alone in Paris and don't speak French, expect to get a rasher of shit.

Cannes Report: Kelly's follow-up to Donnie Darko
  • "Southland Tales imagines a Los Angeles on the brink of apocalypse in 2008, when the Internet is under government control, gasoline is replaced by something called 'fluid karma' and the Democratic Party has splintered into neo-Marxist cells."
  • "There's even a musical number where Justin Timberlake, who plays an Iraq War veteran, lip-synchs to a leg-kicking chorus line of Marilyn Monroe look-alikes."

Weekend Box Office Results, May 19-21
  • The weekend was down about 3% from last year, but that is actually a positive sign, not a negative, because last year's comparable week included the incredible debut of the final Star Wars movie. It was a major achievement that this week's two major releases managed to offset the second best opening weekend of all time!
  • DaVinci Code opened about where analysts originally thought it would - $77 million. (They started revising their estimates downward after the Cannes debacle and the bad reviews.)
  • Over the Hedge also fell within the expected range.
  • That was only the surface of the good news. Last year's Star Wars film set the all time record for foreign box office receipts in one weekend, and The DaVinci Code managed to break that record!!

Inner Sanctum is available on a competent, full screen Region 2 PAL DVD from Scandinavia. This seldom-seen Fred Olen Ray film features rare post-rehab nudity from Margaux Hemingway and career-best nudity from Tanya Roberts. Link below goes to the American importer. (Note: Michael Nouri and Sandahl Bergman are NOT in this film, even though the picture below is an accurate reproduction of the DVD box! The guys who created the box got this film confused with its sequel, Inner Sanctum II. Of course, that fails to explain why they misspelled "Hemingway.")

  • It beat such blockbusters as The Phantom Menace, The Two Towers, and The Passion of the Christ, all of which are in the all-time top twelve
  • Every film which has opened with a $25 million day or better has gone on to at least $200 million. 60% of them have gone on to exceed $300 million.

A clip from Babel
  • "Armed with a Winchester rifle, two Morrocan boys set out to look after their family's herd of goats. In the silent echoes of the desert, they decide to test the rifle... but the bullet goes farther than they thought it would. In an instant, the lives of four separate groups of strangers on three different continents collide. Caught up in the rising tide of an accident that escalates beyond anyone's control are a vacationing American couple (Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett), a rebellious deaf Japanese teenager and her father, and a Mexican nanny who, without permission, takes two American children across the border. None of these strangers will ever meet; in spite of the sudden, unlikely connection between them, they will all remain isolated due to their own inability to communicate meaningfully with anyone around them. From Alejandro González Iñárritu comes a film that is at once intimate and epic, shot in four countries, cast with actors and non-actors, and concludes his trilogy that started with Amores Perros and 21 Grams."
