The trailer for Ground Truth
  • "The Ground Truth" stunned filmgoers at the 2006 Sundance and Nantucket Film Festivals. Hailed as "powerful" and "quietly unflinching," Patricia Foulkrod's searing documentary feature includes exclusive footage that will stir audiences. The filmmaker's subjects are patriotic young Americans – ordinary men and women who heeded the call for military service in Iraq – as they experience recruitment and training, combat, homecoming, and the struggle to reintegrate with families and communities. The terrible conflict in Iraq, depicted with ferocious honesty in the film, is a prelude for the even more challenging battles fought by the soldiers returning home – with personal demons, an uncomprehending public, and an indifferent government. As these battles take shape, each soldier becomes a new kind of hero, bearing witness and giving support to other veterans, and learning to fearlessly wield the most powerful weapon of all – the truth."

The following words are those of the submitter of the link: "Here is a piece on Leonardo DaVinci's Horse",
  • "The short story is that Leonardo's orginal, got as far as the plaster mockup. Sadly, before it could be cast in bronze, it was destroyed in an act of mindless vandelism. The Horse would've made Leonardo great as a sculptor and he never ceased mourning for his horse. Skip ahead a few hundred years and it finally is completed. At 24 feet high it's impressive as hell and the detail work is beautiful. It also give you a good idea of just how impractical the Trojan Horse would have been."

This week's movies: early report
  • World Trade Center, 2700 theaters, 67% positive reviews.
  • Zoom, 2300 theaters, no reviews yet. (Tim Allen as retired superhero called back into service.)
  • Pulse, 2000 theaters, no reviews yet. (Yet another English adaptation of a Japanese horror film.)
  • Step Up, 2100 theaters, no reviews yet. ("Underdog makes good" dance movie.)
  • Little Miss Sunshine, expanding to 140 theaters, tremendous reviews - 91% positive. (Quirky comedy with Kinnear, Carrell)
  • Little Miss Sunshine performed VERY well last week in 58 theaters. It took in twice as much per screen as Talladega Nights.

The Weekend Warrior makes his box office predictions for the upcoming weekend.
  • He does not think that any of the four new arrivals has enough muscle to knock Talladega out of the top spot.
  • He thinks that Oliver Stone's World Trade Center will be the rookie of the week, but with a tepid $17 million.
  • The logical extension of his forecast is that this week will be down slightly from the same weekend last year. If so, this will be a reversal of trend. Ten of the last eleven weeks have been above the comparable week from last year.

Helen Mirren to play the current queen of England.
  • I suppose this will be the least nudity Mirren has even done. I've heard she stays completely dressed except during the anal sex scene.

"Paul Giamatti is in negotiations to star as sci-fi author Philip K. Dick in an untitled biopic."
  • He was an imaginative writer, but was there ever anything interesting in Dick's life? I thought he was a nerdy guy who never left his typewriter. If I remember right, he rarely left his house and didn't even learn to drive until he was almost 30!

    I guess it won't be an action film.

Four clips, three outtakes and a trailer for Trust the Man
  • "A smart, sophisticated comedy about the challenges of love and marriage among modern day New Yorkers, Trust the Man features the romantic escapades of two couples: a successful actress (Julianne Moore) and her stay at home husband (David Duchovny); and her slacker younger brother (Billy Crudup) and his aspiring novelist girlfriend Maggie Gyllenhaal). The film follows these four on their pointed, often surprising and frequently hilarious search for love in the midst of careers, family, infidelity and the ever-daunting search for Manhattan street parking."
