The trailer from Tears Of The Black Tiger
- A highly stylised Thai movie that has been
winning fans at film festivals across the
globe. It combines the retro style of 60s Thai
movies with graphic violence and the look of a
western pop video.
The trailer from Dynamite Warrior, a Thai-style
- Produced by Prachya Pinkaew ("Ong Back:
The Thai Warrior") and featuring death-defying
stunts from acclaimed coordinator Panna
Rittikrai ("Ong Bak," "Born to Fight"),
"Dynamite Warrior" stars Dan Chupong of "Born
to Fight" as Zieng, "The Rocket Thief," a
young man riddled with grief and bent on
revenge after witnessing his parents' murder
by a callous and malicious killer. The only
information Zieng has as to the killer's
identity is the tattoo-covered man who is part
of an organized group of cattle rustlers.
Zieng makes it his mission to stop all cattle
rustlers and in the process return each head
of cattle back to its rightful owner.
The trailer and five clips from 10 Items or Less
- Representing a bold departure for both
Academy Award-winner Morgan Freeman and
director Brad Silberling, "10 Items or Less"
is an intimately-scaled, two-character comedy
in which Freeman plays a major movie star
whose pickiness with his projects accounts for
a lengthy absence from the screen. While
considering a role as a supermarket manager,
he decides to do some field research at a
small ethnic market on the very outskirts of
Los Angeles. Finding himself stranded with no
cell phone or transportation, he meets Paz
Vega, the feisty cashier who mans the store's
express register. When she offers to drive him
back to "civilization," this initially
mismatched pair discovers common ground, with
the star realizing that his love for people is
what drew him to acting in the first place,
and the cashier gaining the confidence to
interview – or as he terms it, to "audition" –
for a job that could change her life.
A second trailer for The Dead Girl
- "The Dead Girl" centers on the dark
mystery surrounding a young woman's death,
which is gradually revealed when the lives of
seemingly uninvolved people intersect.

Devil Times Five (1974)
A rich asshole named Papa Doc is having a mandatory winter holiday at his
Lake Arrowhead resort home for his sycophantic employees and equally obnoxious
family. His wife is notoriously easy, his employee's wife is a lush, and his
daughter is pushing her husband to win a job with daddy. Meanwhile, a bus full
of kids, all convicted murderers from a mental hospital, crashes. They kill
the driver, and take off, arriving at the same Arrowhead resort. The partying adults,
feeling sorry for the kids, let them in. Big mistake. The kids are cute,
precocious and lethal.
The best murder of the bunch was when the kids dumped piranhas into the
bath with Carolyn Steller. The fact that it was done by Steller's real-life
daughter (playing one of the little monsters) makes it all the more fun. In
the actual process of filming the scene, dead piranhas were dropped into the
tub, but still managed to cut her leg badly enough for her to be hospitalized!
The original idea was to capitalize on Ten Little Indians, and have people
dying one at a time, withholding the identity of the killers. After principal
shooting wrapped, a faction convinced the executive producer that it couldn't
be cut into a good movie, so it was drastically rewritten, and several days
worth of additional material were shot. It's difficult to imagine that the
original idea could have been that much worse. The film is filled with
annoyances. Let's start with the best death, Piranhas in the bath. Why didn't
she just stand up and step out of the tub and onto the kids? Then there is the
fact that the murders are shown in slow motion with annoying children's music
box music. Finally there is the fact that the most likable character in the
entire film is a dimwit, and the first killed.
The film is also known as People Toys, The Horrible House on the Hill, and
Tantrums. Based on the number of IMDb votes, it may be the only film which has
had more names than viewers.
The new DVD does includes interview with many of the cast and crew, but all
in all the world is not enriched by the DVD release of this film.
A very small number of IMDb readers say 4.4, but it will probably end up in
that same vicinity if more votes come in.

"I Like Pastrami And Hate Schvartzes" - Michael Richards can't catch a
break: an earlier tape of him making some seemingly anti-Semitic remarks in a
comedy monologue was dismissed by his crisis-management advisor Howard
Rubenstein, who said he was just playing a character and wouldn't attack Jews
because he's Jewish himself. So reporters dug around and found that his parents
weren't Jewish and he'd never converted. Rubenstein said Richards told him that
two Jewish mentors raised him, so "technically," he thinks of himself as
Jewish. Then the A.P. interviewed prominent rabbis, who said that just adopting
Jewish customs or "feeling Jewish" doesn't make you Jewish.
