The trailer for The Prestige -
- "From acclaimed filmmaker Christopher
Nolan ('Memento,' 'Batman Begins'), comes a
mysterious story of two magicians whose
intense rivalry leads them on a life-long
battle for supremacy full of obsession,
deceit and jealousy with dangerous and
deadly consequences. From the time that they
first met as young magicians on the rise,
Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred
Borden (Christian Bale) were competitors.
However, their friendly competition evolves
into a bitter rivalry making them fierce
enemies-for-life and consequently
jeopardizing the lives of everyone around
them. Full of twists and turns, 'The
Prestige' is set against the backdrop of
turn-of-the-century London, the exceptional
cast includes two-time Oscar® winner Michael
Caine, Scarlett Johansson and David Bowie."

Hotel de Love (1996)
Hotel de Love is an unambitious Australian comedy about twin brothers, and
their competition for women. Most of the film takes place at the Hotel de
Love, formerly called Niagara Smalls, a popular if somewhat tacky place with
elaborately-themed suites designed for honeymoons and romance. One of the
brothers (Simon Bossell) is the manager, and his brother (Aden Young) works
The story begins with a flashback in which both brothers are at a party,
and Bossell suddenly "feels love." He turns around to see his dream girl
(Saffron Burrows), and starts to walk towards her, only to be beaten to the
target by his brother. He must then endure their resulting love affair,
including her loss of virginity, at close range, while he is relegated to the
role of friend. When she leaves for the university, they both pine for her.
The story returns to the near present with Burrows checking in to their
hotel, new boyfriend in tow. The old rivalry resumes immediately, but Bossell
becomes increasingly distracted by the hotel psychic (Pippa Grandison).
IMDb readers say 6.2, which is consistent with Ebert's 2.5 and
Berardinelli's 2 stars. This is a mediocre romantic comedy which is
occasionally amusing and features some pretty women.

Dann reports on Bottom's Up:
Paris Hilton is top-billed in this 2006 direct-to-video comedy, so
that should give you some idea of how bad it is. And it is.
To save his Dad's
restaurant, a mid-western guy with a talent for bartending goes to
Hollywood to compete in a bartender contest. He stays with his gay Uncle
Earl, who works for a Hollywood exploitation TV show.
He doesn't win the contest,
but through Uncle Earl, he falls in with a fast Hollywood crowd that
levitates around a young heartthrob, and winds up falling for the hunk's
rich spoiled-brat brainless girlfriend, a part for which Paris
didn't have to act at all.
This thing is gawdawful.
There is no acting, the plot is dumber than a bag of hammers, and it just
plain sucks. Just watch the part from about 31 minutes in to 40 minutes
in, which contains all the nudity, and forget the rest. You'll laugh, but
only about how terrible it is.

Tuesday, after months of buzz and secrecy, Fisher-Price finally unveiled what
may be the hot toy for Christmas: the new version of Tickle Me Elmo. It's
called "T.M.X. Elmo," with the "X" standing for "extreme." The original Elmo
debuted 10 years ago and giggled when its tummy was touched. But a spokesman
said this T.M.X. Elmo's technology makes it do things you won't believe until
you see it. He grows more animated with each successive tickle until he's
having a laughing fit, slapping his knee, falling on the floor, rolling around
and pounding the floor.

In Sao Luiz, Brazil, a man who sells books outside a post office and keeps
his stand inside after-hours was moving it out one morning when he realized a
gang of armed men was robbing the clerks. He got so scared, he started
screaming like a girl and knocked his books onto the floor. A witness said the
robbers were so startled, they forgot they had guns and ran away. The man
didn't want his name released, but a police spokesman said, "Even though it was
unintentional, he stopped the robbery. We will give him a medal for that. We
are calling him 'The Clumsy and Scared Hero.'"

A Swedish political party learned a hard lesson: Internet buzz doesn't translate
into success. The Pirate Party had just three platform
planks: boost online privacy, eliminate patents and cut copyright protection
down to five years. Young people online jumped on their bandwagon, envisioning
a future of unlimited music and movie downloading. But in Tuesday's vote, it
looks as if they not only won't win any power, the Pirate Party likely fell
short of the 1 percent required to get state assistance with
election expenses. Ironically, election day was also "Talk Like A Pirate" Day.

London's Daily Mail claims that Paramount ditched Tom Cruise for "committing
career suicide" and costing them too much money, but they want to keep the
"Mission: Impossible" franchise going with Brad Pitt replacing Cruise. The
tabloid says the studio is offering Pitt $39.5 million, which would make him the
highest-paid star in history. As for Cruise's character, the script would
reportedly dispose of him with a brief mention that he retired to live a safe
life with his new wife.
* Yeah, get someone who works cheap and doesn't have a weird private life ...
like Brad Pitt!
