Movie Monday - Violence of the Lambs

This years 'Snakes on a Plane'.....

Be ba-ba-ba-barry afraid:


'Splosions', terra-ist, jump-cuts, body parts..... Oh, yeah:


It's gettin' dirty at Sundance... real, dirty.

"'Black Snake Moan' is really about two very different people coming to heal each other,' says writer-director Craig Brewer, whose 'Hustle & Flow' created a sensation at Sundance '05.

Brewer's film will open next month, but a distributor is still being sought for what may well turn out to be an even bigger hot potato - 'Hounddog,' which has been notorious since word leaked out that Fanning had filmed a rape scene for the movie.

Set in Alabama of the late 1950s, 'Hounddog' features the star of 'Charlotte's Web' as an Elvis-obsessed singer who is ravaged by an older boy who entices her with tickets to see the King in concert. She also reportedly forces two children to strip at gunpoint and embrace as she wraps a snake around them."

Rise?! uh-huh-huh. Inevitable:


New reality show by Burnett (Survivor) dealing with short films. Winner gets a big contract to direct/produce a feature length. If you have a short you can submit it through their website:

On The Lot


How long before this is a TV special:

'Wild Cambodia jungle-girl' found:
"A Cambodian girl who disappeared aged eight has been found after living wild in the jungle for 19 years, police say."

Colbert subtley handed O'Lielly's ass to him on both shows.

Colbert, O'Reilly Face Off on Both Shows:
"Parody met its inspiration Thursday when Stephen Colbert and Bill O'Reilly traded guest appearances on each other's shows in an exchange that Colbert called 'a meeting of the guts.'"

This has a snowballs chance in hell of ever seeing the light of day much less actually 'passing' as a law but it does paint the entire state as some ultra-liberal nanny state. Sigh. Notice, 'Bay Area' not 'San Francisco'. She ain't one of ours.

Spank a little kid, go to jail, if bill becomes law / Critics blast effort as intrusive and difficult to enforce:
"A Bay Area lawmaker said Thursday she will introduce a bill next week that seeks to make California the first state in the nation to ban spanking children who are 3 years old and younger.

The legislation would make the violation a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail or a fine of up to $1,000."
