Five clips and the trailer from The Edukators
- Jan, Peter and Jule are living out their rebellious youth.
They are united by their passion to change the state of the
world. Jan and Peter become "The Edukators," mysterious
perpetrators who non-violently warn the local rich their "days of
plenty are numbered." Complications follow when vulnerable Jule
ends up falling for both young men. Reckless choices result in
danger. An operation gone wrong and what was never intended to be
a kidnapping brings the three young idealists face-to-face with
the values of the generation in power
- "Bande-annonce" means "trailer"; "passer l'intro" is obvious,
but in case it doesn't register, it means "skip the intro"
Two trailers for Initial D
- "Based on a Japanese comic book, 'Initial D' is the story of

The trailer for The Warrior
- Winner of the BAFTA Award for Best British Film, "The
Warrior" is the tale of a local enforcer for a rich Indian
warlord who renounces his life of violence and then becomes the
prey of his murderous former colleagues. The film follows the
hero's journey from the deserts of Rajasthan through the
snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. Asif Kapadia, winner of the
BAFTA for Most Promising Newcomer, makes his directorial debut
with this visually captivating, highly acclaimed production.
The trailer for Waiting
- "A hilarious comedy about frustrated waiters, stingy tippers
and dicey food, Lions Gate Films' 'Waiting' stars Ryan Reynolds,
Justin Long and Anna Faris as young employees battling boredom at
Shenanigan's, a generic chain restaurant."
The trailer for The Exorcism of Emily Rose
- "In an extremely rare decision, the Catholic Church
officially recognized the demonic possession of a 19 year-old
college freshman. Told in terrifying flashbacks, 'The Exorcism of
Emily Rose' chronicles the haunting trial of the priest accused
of negligence resulting in the death of the young girl believed
to be possessed. Inspired by true events, the film stars Laura
Linney as the lawyer who takes on the task of defending the
priest (Tom Wilkinson) who performed the controversial exorcism."

A Cincinnati man has been charged with public indecency for
exposing his breasts. One must concede that his arrest
is a fair, impartial application of a very silly law. Why DO we
have laws that prevent women from showing their breasts? We should
have laws forbidding women from covering them! Except in certain
cases. I'll let Rosie O'Donnell have a waiver.

A featurette about Poseidon
- "When a rogue wave capsizes a luxury cruise ship in the
middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, a small group of survivors
find themselves unlikely allies in a battle for their lives. As
the unstable vessel rapidly floods with water, they face
unimaginable odds and life-altering decisions in their desperate
fight to the surface."
- This film violates one of the most important of the Scoopian
Unities of Time and Place and Nudity 'n Shit. I've theorized
before that there is only one kind of movie which should be
remade: a pretty good movie that should have been great. Even
narrowing the criteria in that way can produce total disasters
like Rollerball, but at least it is a good starting point. Having
said that, and even admitting that other criteria may be valid,
it is hard for me to envision any good reason to remake The
Poseidon Adventure, unless it involves Jessica Alba and Salma
- The film also violates another, more obscure section of the
Scoopian Unities. It has a sinking ship, and no Billy Zane.
- This is being directed by the guy who did Das Boot. I guess
he's really into "rogue waves", because he also directed The
New Music that doesn't fit anywhere: the primeTime sublime

Human footprints discovered beside an ancient Mexican lake have

the controversy it is bound to stir up, it means that humans must
have moved into the New World at least 30,000 years earlier than
previously thought, and at least a few months before the beginning
of Cher's farewell tour.

- Sigh, what he really said was so-o-o-o boring.

insanity and the whole wacky self-mutilation thing, he never missed
