Tim,

I think the Revenge of the Nerds mode must have come on after I left. Thought it was pretty cool that you had all those groupies there. But then, that's what nude scenes can do for you (sometimes it pays to advertize). I hadn't hung out with actors in about a decade, so it was kind of like coming home.

Any show you do in this state, I'm so there.

I used to have groupies.


No, those were guppies. Never mind.

I got out of jury duty (well, the state's been shut down) and I *still* missed the retreat-cum-Superman outing Monday because there was an emergency and I got stuck fixing it. Alone. Everyone else got to go.

Work, it doth suck.

Stephanie Zacharek :
Gore Verbinski's overstuffed "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest." There's no real plot here: just a collection of ostensibly thrilling situations strung together with tenuous bits of expository dialogue. The characters most of us were probably hoping to see in action together -- chiefly, Johnny Depp's louche-sexy pirate Jack Sparrow and Keira Knightley's feisty adventuress Elizabeth Swann -- barely pass in the night, or even during the day. And although the characters seem to be in motion nearly every minute, the picture is curiously low on swordplay and anything that might pass for swashbuckling. It rushes at us from all directions at once; it's often so busy we hardly know where to look.

Dana Stevens (Slate) :
It would take more than just one bottle of rum to while away the 150-minute running time of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (Disney). The movie itself is a kind of treasure chest, albeit one so crammed with baroque visuals and tangled chains of plot that you have to sift through its overabundant contents in search of the odd pearl.

From the review in the NYT. It may may not be that witty, but it's still a resounding ouch!

The contrast between Clark Kent the socially challenged geek and Superman the superhero was the driver for much of the humour in the first two films.

Very positive reviews from the NYT and Salon for the Charlotte Rampling starrer Heading South about older well-off white women buying sex in a Haitian resort from teenage black boys.

LOL!!! however imagining the Big green guy eventually morphing back into a sweaty naked male resembling Eric Bana might win him a few female admirers

I hear tell there's a real sci-fi film coming down the pipe, "Sunshine" by Danny Boyle, the director who did 28 Days Later and Trainspotting. The sun overheats or needs some kind of repair, so astronauts are dispatched to fly near it, or into it, and fix things.

I wonder what kind of preposterous scientifically created suit or spaceship they'll dream up to make such a thing possible

Robert Downey, Jr. was on The View promoting A Scanner Darkly. It looked good. BB Walters and co. made fools of themselves with him. BB kept saying she hadn't seen the movie but heard it was very strange and people should go see it. Downey looked good.......I hear he's writing a memoir.

Bart.........This is Philip K. Dick, you know.

The View.... what a joke. I guess when you are promoting a movie, you don't have much of a choice in what shows you pimp it to.

I've seen the preview for this movie... it does look like it will be a good movie. That, and Robert Downey Jr. is a good actor.

David Brin had one in his novel Sundiver that transformed the excess heat into light. I forget how he got around the second law of thermodynamics.
