"A Midsummer Night's Dream"
A Midsummer Night's Dream (1968) is a Royal Shakespeare Company production of Shakespeare's play about love and faeries. Judy Dench, as the Fairy Queen Titania, is topless the entire film. This is a faithful rendering of the play in best Royal Shakespeare tradition, including emphasis on the rhyme rather than the meaning of the words. The video quality is absolutely horrible. Costuming in the only unique aspect of this production, as most of the women were dressed in 60's London mod. Ian Hold as Puck was a bright spot. Dench was an odd choice for Titania, as fairylike is not the first adjective that comes to mind when I think of her.
IMDb readers have this at 6.1. The words are still Shakespeare, so it has some merit there alone and the staging was not bad, but the condition of the DVD made it nearly unwatchable. D.

Traditional British road rage - with a longbow.
- Howard Dean tells Tim Russert:
"the thing that really bothered me the most is the insinuation
that the president continues to make to this day that Osama bin
Laden had something to do with supporting terrorists"
- Osama? Terrorists? No. Lovely guy. He was a smashing bloke.
He used to buy his mother flowers and that. He was like a
brother to me. I mean, he didn't want to nail my head to the
floor. I had to insist. He wanted to let me off. He'd do
anything for you, Osama would.

- Testimonial: "My kids were pressuring me about my will and
would talk about what they would do with the money in front of
me. So I called Hire-a-Killer and had them killed in a tragic
accident. I used the money from their life insurance to go on a
cruise! Thanks H.A.K.!

The ALL-TIME Top 100 Movies per TIME Magazine.
- They certainly came up with some obscure choices, but you
have to applaud their effort to make people aware that the film
canon is far more encompassing than we realize. I've never heard
of some of these, so that will pique my curiosity, and maybe
I'll learn something.
- I like the fact that the authors have reinvigorated the
sagging reputations of some outstanding films like Kind Hearts
- Interesting to see Miller's Crossing make the list. When
that film came out in 1990, it was ignored by the Academy and
moviegoers alike, but its reputation keeps growing - and
deservedly, in my opinion.

Representatives of the nation's top psychiatric group approved a
statement Sunday urging legal recognition of gay marriage.
The document clarifies that the association is addressing same-sex
civil marriage, not religious marriages. It takes no position on
any religion's views on marriage. Massachusetts is the only state
that allows same-sex marriage. Eighteen states have passed
constitutional amendments outlawing same-sex marriage.

Sith pulls in $108 million for the Weekend Box Office
- That did not break the all-time Spider-Man record, but
Sith's $108 is actually far more impressive than Spidey's $114
because Sith opened on a Thursday, Spidey on a Friday. Therefore
Sith's midnight showings went into Thursday's totals. If Sith
had opened on Friday with the same totals at the midnight
showings, the weekend box office would have been $124 million,
easily eclipsing the record.
- Sith's total for the four day weekend was an incredible
$158.5 million. That's an average of forty million per day for
four days. Prior to this there had only been three forty million
dollar days in all of history. Each one of Sith's first four
days is among the top 15 days of all time. Thursday and Saturday
are number #1 and #4 of all time.
Absolute proof that George Bush is the anti-Christ.
- I guess this guy didn't get the memo that 666 was a typo,
and the "number of the beast"
turned out to be 616. So I guess Dubya would be the
typo-Christ. The actual anti-Christ turned out to be Jimmy
- Ya gotta love the failure of nutbars to see the obvious. He
says that George Bush adds up to 666 in Hebrew, and challenges
anyone to name any other leader in history, past or present
whose name adds up to 666. Well, I think I can handle the math
on that. Assuming that George Bush really does add to 666, I'm

Today in Uncle Scoopy's Guest House: Dina Meyer in Poodle Springs
- Headline of the day, maybe of all time, goes to The Sun:

did I fabricate this quote. Bush's spokesman said: "He has been

Chinese pirates hawking latest `Star Wars' just days after premier
- "Counterfeiters were selling illegal DVD copies of the
latest Star Wars movie on Beijing streets Sunday, just three
days after the movie opened in Chinese cinemas. The copies,
priced $2.40, were being offered by vendors out of shoulder bags
on Beijing's main avenue. The pirate copies were slightly blurry
but appeared not to have been filmed in a cinema, as many of
China's imported fakes are."
- If the pirated DVD's are not "cams," I suppose these are the
same "workprint" copies which have been circulating throughout
IRC and BitTorrent sites for the past few days.

- Stars: Bai Ling, Tim Roth, Nick Nolte
- Bai Ling was to have had a small part in Revenge of the Sith,
but was cut out. She felt that she was cut because of her
decision to pose for Playboy.
Here's the story.
- I guess the Playboy spread might be the explanation, but
even though many web sites have reported it as a fact, it was
merely her surmisal. Lucas denied it by saying, "She was cut out
of the movie very early on. My daughter's in that same scene. My
daughter was cut as well." The Lucas explanation sounds more
logical. The film is quite long, and I would guess Bail Ling was
cut simply because her scene was relevant neither to plot
development nor tie-in deals.
- Although, in all fairness, I was disappointed to see it cut,
because I was hoping to buy the "George Lucas's Daughter" action
- It is a sad day for lovers of bad movies.
Screenwriter Ed Kelleher, offbeat screenwriter, dies at 61
- And what a career he had! Some of his better reviews
included "barely coherent," "ridiculous dialogue," "inept," and
- His less favorable reviews probably used words normally
reserved for the mouth of Regan when she's facing an exorcism.
- If the obit is accurate, he and I went to the same college
as undergrads. Based on his 1943 birthday, he would have
graduated from Fordham a year or two before I arrived, so I
never knew him and frankly, I never heard of him until today. I
looked him up in the Alumni Directory, and he was not listed.

'Caps and comments by Dann:
There's a chance you'll like this 2004 horror flick just because it's so bad. I've seen better acting in porn flicks, the script is dreadful, and the plot, which really isn't all that bad, doesn't save the film.
Wracked by guilt when her parents die of a gas leak while she's out partying, Rebecca (Tatum Adair) goes to the family's summer cabin to deal with her grief. Soon she starts to see visions of her dead parents and others. What she doesn't know is that 100 years ago, local residents were accidentally drowned when a dam was built and the town was flooded to create the lake. Now, the souls are getting restless.
What somewhat saves this thing is it's badness. You'll want to keep watching just to see the next bit of nonsense. A couple nude scenes by Tatum help a little, too. All in all, though, pretty bad stuff.

The movie is called "Secret Sins" aka "Melissa". Mostly filmed in 1995, the production apparently ran out of money and the project was shelved for several years. Eventually someone decided to finish it up and dump it onto the home video market. According to the email in my inbox, this was just released last week and is available from NetFlix.
