Cutaways, Take 7

So, let the record reflect that we were only off by two in our Oscar predictions. Not that anyone cares, mind you ...


Halle Berry gets a gold star from us for being enough of a good sport to show up personally for the Razzies and accept her dishonor as worst actress of the year for Catwoman. Despite that sorry movie, however, we hope and pray that she will not be deterred from future roles that also require skintight black leather.


Speaking of awards, Sideways pretty much swept the Independent Spirit Awards held this past weekend: Best picture, screenplay, director, actor, supporting actor and supporting actress. And, yes, Paul Giamatti was among the winners. The only major award that Sideways didn't pick up was Best Actress, which justifiably went to Catalina Sandina Moreno for Maria Full of Grace.


This is one of the funniest things I've come across in a long time. Thank you to Drew and his Blog-a-Rama for bringing this wholesome goodness ... Office Space as performed by the Superfriends
... or Fred Flintstone in Raging Bull
.... or Scarface Dick Cheney ...
We always thought Barney Rubble and Joe Pesci resembled each other a bit.


So, lemme guess: You've been searching high and low for a clearinghouse of information about chess in the movies. Am I right? Am I right?

If so, your prayers have been answered. Chess in the Cinema catalogs movie scenes that feature people playing chess. (Thanks to Bitter Cinema).

All you Yahtzee fanatics just need to keep your chin up and be patient.
