    Brilliant investigation into local cinemas in China: "It was then that I realized I was in China, watching a French movie dubbed, for some reason, into Russian, and subtitled in Chinese. This was getting better by the minute."

  • The NitPicker's Guide to the Lord of the Rings
    Detailed examination of the differences between the films and the books. Looking down the list you can see Jackson changed things for dramatic reasons, tightening things up. Interesting nonetheless.

  • Claire Danes = Sellout
    Claire goes for the Japanese coin. The more interesting issue is that she's famous enough over there to be given advertising like this.

    1. Aw, that "Pod People" story is from the Minneapolis City Pages! Now I'm going to be homesick for the rest of the day. And is it wrong that I find it comforting to know that Claire Danes is still able to sell out? I think she's remarkably talented and doesn't nearly get enough attention. If she wants to be on big Japanese billboards... yay for her!

    2. I heard a rumour she was almost with Bill Murray in 'Lost In Translation'. Very wrong, but ironically it might have meant she would have known more about what his character was going through than he did.
