John Safran vs Mormons
  • Australian filmmaker John Safran is so fed up with mormons ringing his doorbell early in the morning that he flies to Salt Lake City, Utah and tries to convert Mormons to atheism. Needless to say, the locals were not pleased.

The trailer for Miss Potter, a Beatrix Potter biopic starring Renee Zellweger
  • Beatrix Potter has delighted generations of children with her books. But she kept her own private life locked carefully away. Oscar-winning star Renée Zellweger is now bringing her secret story to the screen in "Miss Potter," the first film directed by Chris Noonan since his charming 1995 movie, "Babe." It is set in the high summer days of late Victorian and Edwardian England, during which Beatrix develops her natural skills as artist and story-teller. When she finally publishes her debut book, "The Tale of Peter Rabbit," she becomes a writing celebrity. It also leads to courtship and her first love with publisher Norman Warne, played by Ewan McGregor. Their relationship and his marriage proposal in July, 1905, was to change Beatrix's life for ever.


    It was a love which she could not announce - or even talk about. In high-society London, her parents had insisted she keep it from friends and neighbours. They considered her proposed wedding a mismatch. Warne, they said, was from 'trade' and demanded that she carefully reconsider their life together. Beatrix allowed herself to be persuaded to leave her fiancé and London. It was supposed to be a time for reflection and calm. But, instead, she faced tragedy and loneliness and returned, with a different outlook. She became a woman of strong views and independence. She also built up a farming dynasty in the Lake District - a dynasty over which she took charge long after her writing career virtually ended in 1913. It established her as a woman ahead of her time. Despite becoming the world’s most successful children's writer and a wealthy landowner and prize-winning farmer, she never forgot her first love.

The trailer for Epic Movie
  • Ya gotta love Crispin Glover as Willy Wonka!
  • The twisted minds of two of the six writers of "Scary Movie" tackle the biggest mega-blockbusters of all time in "Epic Movie." The story centers on four not-so-young orphans: one raised by a curator at the Louvre (where an albino assassin lurks), another a refugee from Mexican "libre" wrestling, the third a recent victim of snakes on her plane, and the fourth a "normal" resident of a mutant "X"-community. The hapless quartet visits a chocolate factory, where they stumble into an enchanted wardrobe that transports them to the land of Gnarnia (with a "G"). There they meet a flamboyant pirate captain and earnest students of wizardry – and join forces with, among others, a wise-but-horny lion to defeat the evil White Bitch of Gnarnia.

"In a special pre-Thanksgiving radio address broadcast from the White House, President George W. Bush asked his fellow Americans to join him in giving thanks for the following things"

  • Let’s be thankful for global warming, because as these winter months approach, it makes the world such a nice, toasty place.
  • Let’s be thankful that by the time I finally had to go to Vietnam, I never had to leave my limo.
  • Let’s be thankful that even though my approval numbers are at a record low, they’re still higher than my grades at Yale.
  • Let’s be thankful for Sony PlayStation Portable, which really helps you get through those long Cabinet meetings when they’re going on and on about the economy.
  • Let’s be thankful that in nine months it will be August and then I can go on summer vacation again.
  • Let be thankful that as bad as my career is right now, it's still in better shape than Kramer's.

You have to love Scandinavia: "Is it sacrilegious to keep churchgoers warm and toasty in their pews by using the heat from cremated bodies?"
  • So here's the Norwegian/Danish plan. When it gets too cold, they let convicted mass murderers out of prison on leave. They kill a bunch of people. Authorities cremate the bodies. Voila! Instant warmth.

Multiple murderer cuts promo spot for shock-jock
  • My favorite part of the article is underlined: "Hi, this is Veronica Orderud, and I listen to Mina every day. And if YOU don't, I'll kill you," is the message. The sound bite was recorded in connection with an interview with Veronica Orderud during a prison leave. Where else but Norway would a convicted mass murderer get leave from prison? They should be thankful she only JOKED about killing people.
