The trailer for Miss Potter, a Beatrix
Potter biopic starring Renee Zellweger
- Beatrix Potter has delighted generations
of children with her books. But she kept her
own private life locked carefully away.
Oscar-winning star Renée Zellweger is now
bringing her secret story to the screen in
"Miss Potter," the first film directed by
Chris Noonan since his charming 1995 movie,
"Babe." It is set in the high summer days of
late Victorian and Edwardian England, during
which Beatrix develops her natural skills as
artist and story-teller. When she finally
publishes her debut book, "The Tale of Peter
Rabbit," she becomes a writing celebrity. It
also leads to courtship and her first love
with publisher Norman Warne, played by Ewan
McGregor. Their relationship and his marriage
proposal in July, 1905, was to change
Beatrix's life for ever.
It was a love which she could not announce -
or even talk about. In high-society London,
her parents had insisted she keep it from
friends and neighbours. They considered her
proposed wedding a mismatch. Warne, they said,
was from 'trade' and demanded that she
carefully reconsider their life together.
Beatrix allowed herself to be persuaded to
leave her fiancé and London. It was supposed
to be a time for reflection and calm. But,
instead, she faced tragedy and loneliness and
returned, with a different outlook. She became
a woman of strong views and independence. She
also built up a farming dynasty in the Lake
District - a dynasty over which she took
charge long after her writing career virtually
ended in 1913. It established her as a woman
ahead of her time. Despite becoming the
world’s most successful children's writer and
a wealthy landowner and prize-winning farmer,
she never forgot her first love.
The trailer for the remake of The Hitcher
- From filmmaker Michael Bay's Platinum
Dunes production company ("The Texas Chainsaw
Massacre" , "The Amityville Horror"
) comes a remake of the 1986 terror
classic. Dave Meyers is directing the new
film, which tracks the terrifying
cross-country trajectory of Grace (Sophia
Bush) and Jim (Zachary Knighton), two
traveling college students who are tormented
by the mysterious hitchhiker John Ryder,
a.k.a. The Hitcher (Sean Bean).

The trailer for Epic Movie
- Ya gotta love Crispin Glover as Willy
- The twisted minds of two of the six
writers of "Scary Movie" tackle the biggest
mega-blockbusters of all time in "Epic Movie."
The story centers on four not-so-young
orphans: one raised by a curator at the Louvre
(where an albino assassin lurks), another a
refugee from Mexican "libre" wrestling, the
third a recent victim of snakes on her plane,
and the fourth a "normal" resident of a mutant
"X"-community. The hapless quartet visits a
chocolate factory, where they stumble into an
enchanted wardrobe that transports them to the
land of Gnarnia (with a "G"). There they meet
a flamboyant pirate captain and earnest
students of wizardry – and join forces with,
among others, a wise-but-horny lion to defeat
the evil White Bitch of Gnarnia.
"In a special pre-Thanksgiving radio address
broadcast from the White House, President George
W. Bush asked his fellow Americans to join him
in giving thanks for the following things"
- Let’s be thankful for global warming,
because as these winter months approach, it
makes the world such a nice, toasty place.
- Let’s be thankful that by the time I
finally had to go to Vietnam, I never had to
leave my limo.
- Let’s be thankful that even though my
approval numbers are at a record low, they’re
still higher than my grades at Yale.
- Let’s be thankful for Sony PlayStation
Portable, which really helps you get through
those long Cabinet meetings when they’re going
on and on about the economy.
- Let’s be thankful that in nine months it
will be August and then I can go on summer
- Let be thankful that as bad as my career
is right now, it's still in better shape than

Aphrodite is a French softcore effort from Robert Fuest. It is set in
Europe just prior to WW1. An arms dealer is taking some friends on his yacht
to a private Greek island to properly commemorate the confluence of the moon
and Pleides. He is also visiting a potential arms customer. His intent is to
get all of his guests to reenact an erotic story about Aphrodite in honor of
the feast of that goddess and, hopefully, get the virginal Valerie Kaprisky
properly laid. Two of the three days go according to plan, but, on the third
day, Archduke Ferdinand is shot, ruining the whole plan.
The film enjoyed a theatrical release in France and Finland, and then went
to vid in Finland, Italy, Portugal, Spain and West Germany. As near as I can
tell, the German version is the only one on DVD although, strangely enough,
the audio is in English in this all region version. At any rate, the film is
nearly impossible to find.
Not that you would want to.
IMDb has this at a weak 3.7, but all three IMDb commenters like this film,
mentioning the classical score, costuming, and soft focus photography. I
suspect that a very naked Valerie Kaprisky is a huge part of their enjoyment,
because this film is a drag. Basically, it's a series of inane
conversations followed by sex scenes. Don't let the economical running time of
88 minutes fool you. It felt like it took hours. I saw nothing of merit in the
plot or the acting, but, as a soft core, it does meet genre requirements, and
is therefore a C-.
A Happy Thanksgiving to all!

The Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) issued its annual "Trouble In
Toyland" holiday list of the most dangerous toys. They cited Wal-Mart's Kid
Connection Mini Activity Cube and Lincoln Logs' Frontier Firehouse for having
small parts that pose choking hazards. Other toys contained magnets that can
cause serious harm if swallowed. Some toy jewelry contained lead; while play
cosmetics sets contained toxic chemicals, such as toluene and xylene. And the
Little Tikes' Carry Along Musical Keyboard was judged to be dangerously loud.
