Hustle and Flow (2005)

Opened yesterday. Urban drama about a small-time pimp and hustler who tries to make it in hip-hop. Stars Terrence Dashon Howard. Critics generally liked it (Metacritic 68, Rotten Tomatoes 81%), but said that it would not be much without Howard. IMDb voters don't like it at all (5.2)

A Very Long Engagement (2004)

There isn't much more that I can say about this film since after seeing it I anointed Jean-Pierre Jeunet as the greatest living director. Where does one go from there. Here's the review.


Not Another Teen Movie (2001)

Scoopy Junior and I agree that this is an underrated comedy. The critics hated it, but then again the critics hate almost every lowbrow genre parody. It has always been so. You should have seen the original reviews for Blazing Saddles, or for that matter, for Duck Soup.

There is a kind of more-cultured-than-thou mind-set among critics that begins with this premise: the very best lowbrow genre parody, no matter how brilliant and funny, is not as good as the very worst serious drama. Once you accept that truth, little grasshoppers, you will be able to write good reviews for complete manure like Eyes Wide Shut, while insisting that Airplane is beneath your dignity,

Nothing more to say about the movie. For reference, here is my review.

Notes on the Unrated Extended Director's Cut:

There are only two changes from the earlier DVD to this one:

1. They moved the deleted scenes back into the film proper.

2. They deleted the commentary tracks.

Therefore, the only reason to watch the re-issued "director's cut" DVD is if you want to watch the entire movie straight through rather than seeing the deleted scenes separately. This is basically a rip-off. If you own the earlier DVD, this one has not one shred of additional material. In fact, it has less material (no commentary tracks), so if you don't own either one and want one, get the earlier one.

'Caps and comments by Hankster:

Today we take a look at a 1999 flick called the "Killer Eye".

Good movie? no, bad movie?, yes. The star of this one is Jacqueline Lovell. Now for me I think this woman is very attractive and usually gets very naked in her movies. But this time all we get is some topless scenes which is kind of disappointing, what where they thinking, they have an actress who is comfortable with showing everything (remember lolita 2000 from a few days ago) and all I get is boobs.

Well at least we do get Nanette Bianchi in some scenes with the "Killer Eye" (really cheesy monster)and she shows off the whole package.This is only her second screen credit at IMDB.

In my way of looking at the world, at every point in life we can all identify ourselves as being like a character from Seinfeld. In this case, most people are a Peterman, but I am an Elaine. Sure, the movie took home 9 Oscars in 1997, including: Best Picture and Best Director...but good lord was is it dull!

  • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
  • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
  • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
  • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

Olbermann: "The special prosecutor may be going after Karl Rove and Scooter Libby for making false statements to the prosecutors. In other words: lying."
  • Man, if they're going to go after politicians for lying in public, they better start building a lot more prisons in the D.C. area. My guess is that a prosecution for lying ain't gonna happen. I base this on the theory of legal precedents. Richard Nixon went his entire life without ever telling the truth once - not even by accident - and they never tossed him in the slammer.

The first look at the trailer for V For Vendetta

  • "Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, 'V For Vendetta' tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked vigilante (Hugo Weaving) known only as 'V.' Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he detonates two London landmarks and takes over the government-controlled airwaves, urging his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V's mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself -- and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel 'V For Vendetta' by Alan Moore ('The Watchmen,' 'From Hell') and illustrator David Lloyd."

Two trailers for A Sound of Thunder

  • "Based on a short story by master of science fiction Ray Bradbury, the sci-fi action adventure A Sound of Thunder is set in the future, when time travel is not only possible, it's a lucrative monopoly. It's especially profitable for Charles Hatton (Ben Kingsley), the owner of Time Safari Inc., a travel agency that specializes in escorting wealthy clients on exclusive hunting trips back to the Prehistoric Age. Under the leadership of seasoned scout Dr. Travis Ryer (Ed Burns), participants are permitted to hunt and kill dinosaurs provided they follow a set of strenuous rules. These guidelines are intended to protect the creatures' natural habitats and prevent time travelers from impacting the course of evolution. When an expedition is compromised and the rules are broken, the hunters return to the future...and discover the world is a markedly different place than it was when they left. As 'time waves' ripple from the Prehistoric past through the present to the uncharted future, Ryer teams up with Sonia Rand (Catherine McCormack), the inventor of the time travel technology, to unravel the mystery behind the catastrophic historical changes that are threatening to erase humanity from existence."

The trailer for Thumbsucker.

  • Winner, Special Jury Prize for Acting (Lou Pucci), Sundance Film Festival 2005. Winner, Silver Bear for Best Actor (Lou Pucci), Berlin International Film Festival 2005. It's not easy growing up, no matter what age you are ... Justin Cobb (Lou Pucci) still sucks his thumb at 17. He wants to stop and knows that his thumbsucking is disrupting his family, his love life and his identity. The only thing that changes his behavior is hypnosis therapy administered by his "guru" orthodontist. But while Justin felt this would solve all his problems and he would finally be "normal," his troubles were really just beginning. Thumbsucking was only a symptom of a deep-seated fear: that he and his father aren't good enough for his mother, and that she would leave them. Thumbsucking was the only way to soothe this fear. Once that is gone Justin spirals into manic behavior, is diagnosed with ADHD and put on Ritalin, which becomes a substitute for his thumb. When the high of the prescription drugs and a newfound success at school crash, Justin turns to pot and sex to replace his thumb. His father Mike (Vincent D'Onofrio) is himself shadowed by the sad twists of youth: a broken college football career apparently sidelined by a knee injury. In many ways Mike feels like a teenager, yet he finds himself in his early 40s with his eldest son still sucking his thumb as he's heading to college and his wife seeming to drift away. Mike hides his fears and disappointments with tough behavior - but that trick is running dry. He is growing out of the lies and denials that got him from college to the present. Did he ever really want to be a jock? Is that a false self that he has hidden in for all these years and doesn’t know how to evolve out of? His wife Audrey (Tilda Swinton) wonders how she could possibly be "grown up" with a son going to college. She seems to be asking "How did I get here?" and "Is this all there is?" In her early 40s, she is, like Justin, struggling to find out who she is and to accept her shortcomings. As a mother she knows that she doesn't have all the answers to Justin's troubles, and that she is sometimes too busy dealing with her own doubts to help him. Audrey hides from these realities through an obsession with a TV heartthrob, Matt Schraam (Benjamin Bratt), whose TV character seems to have all the neat answers, but his real drug addicted self reveals messier truths to both her and Justin. Little brother Joel (Chase Offerle) is mostly oblivious to the family's dynamics, and thinks his troubled older brother is embarrassing. Joel provides comic relief with his lack of doubt in a family full of questions, yet his strong-mindedness may be misunderstood. Justin turns to others outside his family to help. His New Age orthodontist, Perry Lyman (Keanu Reeves), seems to mirror Justin's ups and downs. They both try on different personas that hide their doubts and fears. Perry transforms into an EST/FORUM-style high achiever before winding up a washed-up mess who stops looking for disguises and easy answers, finding a strange kind of happiness in the process. At school, Mr. Geary (Vince Vaughn), Justin's debate coach, initially tries to help. His alternately dominating and cripplingly insecure behavior is revealed as he attempts to live his life through his students. Striving to act as a peer to Justin, Mr. Geary eventually finds that he can no longer control him when Justin reaps great success, and their relationship crumbles. Justin's heart belongs to another pretender, Rebecca (Kelli Garner) who masks her insecurities about sex and relationships behind a cool demeanor. She seems adult beyond her years, but Justin learns the hard way that she is not able to face her fears. "Thumbsucker" is an honest and funny look at the struggles of people who feel deeply flawed, both those in youth and middle age. They yearn to be anything but their real selves with their real fears and doubts. Instead, they want to be "normal." They look for magic answers to fix themselves – only to realize that they can't be someone else, that "normal" does not exist, and that their flaws are what make them human and loveable.

The trailer for Junebug

  • "When Madeleine (Embeth Davidtz), a British-born dealer in regional, 'outsider' art, travels from Chicago to North Carolina to pursue a local painter for her gallery, she and her brand-new, younger husband George (Alessandro Nivola) extend the trip to include an introduction to his family: his prickly mother Peg (Celia Weston); his taciturn father Eugene (Scott Wilson); his angry younger brother Johnny (Benjamin McKenzie), who has always suffered in the shadow of his over-achieving brother; and Johnny's very pregnant and innocently garrulous wife Ashley (Amy Adams). Madeleine confronts the difficulty of these two cultures colliding, and discovers the tumultuous outcome as these separate ways of life must coexist.
    Although Ashley immediately takes to the sophisticated Madeleine and embraces her as a sister, the other members of George's family, especially his mother, are less than receptive. With George falling into his old routine of spending time alone, Madeleine relies almost entirely on Ashley to help her navigate the family dinners, Church meetings, and Ashley's baby shower, all while desperately trying to close the deal on the artist. Tensions mount when Ashley goes into labor and each family member's priorities, Madeleine's included, are confronted."

Tip Your Server - The German leisure lifestyle magazine Freizeit ran an ad for a legal brothel in Austria which included a coupon for "half an hour of free sex with a lady of your choice." The ad sparked outrage from women readers, who called it appalling, indecent and sexist. But the issue sold out in one day. The magazine's advertising director said the ad was not salacious and said the women who complained are "nitpicking."

  • So are the people who went to that brothel.
  • Know who else is complaining? The prostitutes.
  • If you're into three-ways, next month they're running a two-for-one coupon.
  • For some guys, a hooker coupon is the only way they can get sex without having to pay for it.

    Do I Have To Cut The Grass? - The European beer company Hoegaarden surveyed 2,000 adults to ask what's the quickest way to reduce stress. 84 percent said the best way was to look at the ocean. Watching the sea came in far ahead of runner-up stressbusters, such as walking in the park, smelling newly-cut grass or listening to the birds singing.

  • Or, unfortunately, having a beer.
  • When I watch the ocean, I keep thinking that I spotted a shark.
  • I think the best stress reducer is the sound of a supermodel's post-sex snoring as she lies in bed beside me while I count my lottery jackpot winnings...This is theoretical, by the way.

    Threat Or Promise? - Isla Fisher has a breakthrough role in "Wedding Crashers" as Gloria, a sex-crazed woman who throws herself at Vince Vaughn, but it's causing some off-screen problems. Fisher, the fiancee of British comic Ali G, said she's alarmed by the number of nymphomaniacs who are coming up to her to describe in graphic detail how they relate to Gloria until she "feels the need to walk away." She said, "Clearly, there are a lot of Glorias out there, so men, beware."

  • So I can be on my guard, could she send me their names and phone numbers?
  • Apparently, they aren't big enough nymphomaniacs to come up to Ali G instead.
  • Ladies, a little tip: If you want to talk about your nymphomania, tell a man...He won't walk away.

    Least Likely To Succeed - A man who had a teenage summer romance with a 15-year-old Jennifer Aniston in 1984 is selling his "Precious High School Romance Memorabilia" on eBay. The treasures include the paper she first wrote her name and number on in lipstick, a love letter, and a birthday greeting she wrote on toilet paper after realizing she forgot to buy him a card. He calls it "an intimate and endearing look into a young Jennifer's heart," and set a reserve price of $100,000.

  • For $100,000, that phone number had better still be good.
  • The toilet paper was more than he deserved.
  • For an extra $20,000, he'll throw in the first restraining order she ever sent him.
  • He plans to spend the money on Angelina Jolie memorabilia.
