Is that the one with (the late) Heath Ledger and some angry young female?

It is! And I'm surprised to see it's a remake of a Shakespeare play.

I watched it in a theatre on a ship, and it did prevent me from getting seasick. Which does not talk up the fact that they try to make you laugh by somebody shooting an arrow in the posterior of somebody else.

(Not enough people use the word "posterior" these days.)

I agree. Then we could hear:

- I'll kick your posterior, muthafucka
- That movie sucked posterior
- Kiss my posterior
- Get outta the way, fat posterior!
- My team gave your team a real posterior-whooping

You have to admit it beats "behind"... :regan:

Did you see the Wicker Man remake with Nicholas Cage?

It's a remake of another horror movie called "The Wicker Man". Nicholas Cage is a temporarily retiring police man who receives a letter from an ex-girlfriend. She writes she has a kid who's gone missing, and asks him to rescue him. He then goes to an island where women are in control. The very few men are doing slave work.

Geez. It looks awful! And of course a movie involving women in control and men doing work would definitely be a horror movie. Have you seen the original?

No. Maybe I should, but somehow I don't feel like it after seeing such a misogyn production. It's like the classic myth of the Amazones: the reason why men rule the world, is because if women would it, it would be a big mess.

Don't you think it's a pretty big mess now?



Have the courage of your convictions.

He didn't help, but surely a lot of the world's mess is not his doing. And with Iraq he's just following a long and proud American tradition of waging war on defenceless countries and wasting an immense amount of money on them and keeping them going on and on and on.

{My memory is delving deep into the history class section...} The world was always a mess. It still is. And there's no sign of improvement. :-(

we improve all the time, but they are small steps and most have to be maintained or we lose them, w forget how to take care of them or forget why they matter. Or sometimes frommisuse they become tattered and then discarded for something novel idea that no one's tried yet, it sells and the old ways are forgotten.
This is the year of the rat, though.

What are you talking about Punky? ;-) You remind me of the venerable Edmund Bourke expounding on the French Revolution. Do you identify with conservatism as a theory?

it seems common sense to me to be sceptical of new things, simply by nature of their newness. Even a good idea may not turn out so hot on the ground (NAFTA?GATT). It's better to know what you're doing before you get into it (IRAQ). Media conglomerates are not our friend. These I guess may be conservative ideas. But what seems like common sense to me is not the democratic norm. Not these days. But I never subscribed to the credit economy or the one based on cars and gas, never bought a house. I'm not part of that debt, that 'conventional wisdom'. But prices for food and rent and utilities go up anyway. If anything, in answer to your question, I think our current econ woes are a product of the false calls of 'fiscal conservatism'. Namely for trickle down economics and 'starve the beast of government spending', tax cuts for the rich, the calls of 'the market is self-correcting' and 'let the private sector handle it'. But they're not. They're in it for themselves. Nothing new there.

Sorry to go on. I've just seen it coming for years and I want to be hopeful about the future here and I live in a vibrant community that actually gives a shit, so I'm lucky and grateful. We'll just be scaling back for awhile.

WAY too many to list but here's a few that immediately spring to mind:

Any movie starring Cameron Diaz from this decade
Any movie starring Jessica Alba PERIOD
Slackers (my personal pick for the worst movie of all time)
Mr. Deeds

Any movie starring Angelina Jolie
Any movie starring (but NOT co-starring) Drew Barrymore
Kevin Smith movies (they just don't hold up well)
John Hughes movies (ditto - and for the record, Heathers is the best teen movie of all time)

Yeah, I thought Gladiator was good and the woman who did the music is from an area in rural Victoria near where I live. She's really incredible.
