noose ...

Trailers for the new Tom Cruise flick The Last Samurai didn't impress me much (in addition to my unadulterated subterranean opinion of his acting skills). And now Jonathan Hoberman's review includes a high-concept capsule for the film: Dances With Wolves . . . in Kimono.

Last heard: there's an extended/restored version of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly hitting the theatres soon ...Yum!

Apparently, Mahesh Manjrekar is planning to remake Robert Mulligan's Summer of 42 in Bollywood. Buzz is that Jaya Prada and Dino Morea will play the leads in this older woman-young man love story. Manjrekar had earlier announced a project with Sanjay Dutt and Kareena Kapoor. Titled Ek Ajeeb Prem Kahani, the film again was a love story between a young girl and a older guy. Expect more posts as soon as I can get off the floor and find something to stop my tears of laughter ...

Caught the Tehzeeb {pick up the thread} premiere party (courtesy: indiafm) and I must note Sushmita's ease at handling with questions and talking to the camera. I collapsed once again at the moment when, as the camera moved in to catch Shabana and Urmila, a voice rang out "boss tho.Daa ##camera## niiche le naa yaar!".

/. scintillates with two awesome threads of discussion: one dedicated to an open letter from Darl McBride (soon slated to top the charts for being the individual most maligned by the Open Source community) [ Darl missed a few salient points that I will enumerate: 1) The GPL kills small cute furry animals. 2) The GPL causes cancer in laboratory animals. 3) The GPL encourages terrorism. 4) It hurts THE CHILDREN. 5) Reciting the text of the GPL backwards will cause the appearance of the Anti-Christ and will initiate the apocalypse.] and the other to followups on an article on physics jokes [Protons have mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic!].

Current listens include King George from the Coffy soundtrack (for obvious reasons, I feel really cool now).
