News Roll Call

Berry Skillful as Widow;Wall Street Journal - The camera can't seem to get enough of Benicio Del Toro's face in "Things We Lost in the Fire." At first it's off-putting, even oppressive, an in-your-face performance of such insistent unsubtlety as to make you wonder if he has lost all sense of ...

To be honest this movie hasn't even been on my radar. I am not a fan of Benicio Del Toro. I cannot understand why people are always on his jock.

There's not enough bite in '30' Days'San Jose Mercury News - There's nothing romantic about the bloodsuckers with one-track minds in the horrifingly erratic "30 Days of Night.

Hey, the movie looked scary to me. I would not go see it in the theaters though. It would be a video rental.

NYC Woman Finds Python in the ToiletABC News - AP There was no Halloween bogeyman in the closet for one Brooklyn woman just a 7-foot-long python in her toilet. Nadege Brunacci was washing her hands in her bathroom before dawn Monday when she glanced back and saw the slithering serpent peeking out ...

Oh, I would have fainted to the ground. Then the snake would have crawled out to swallow me whole. Or better yet, I would have needed to potty in the middle of the night and it would have bitten me in the ass. That is just crazy.

Sony BMG Artists Now Playing on MySpaceTechNewsWorld - Social networking giant MySpace has hatched another deal to play on its users' love of music. Under a partnership with Sony BMG, users will be able to add streaming videos and select audio material from the label's artists to their ...

IMO, this is just another way to squeeze out the independent artist by making that much harder for them to get exposure.

Don't jail Diddy - alleged victimNew York Daily News - BY MIKE JACCARINO and ALISON GENDAR The man allegedly slugged by hip-hop mogul Sean (Diddy) Combs doesn't want to see the star locked up by cops.

Can we say payoff? I wish Diddy would hit me right about now.

As Writers’ Strike Looms, Stakes Are Higher for TV Than FilmNew York Times - At lunch in Hollywood last Thursday, Neal Baer, an executive producer of the NBC hit “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” got a telephone call from North Bergen, NJ, where the series is filmed.

They better get to taping some episodes in advanced because I would hate for my shows to leave me hanging. Seriously, they need to work it out.

Star Wars TV Series Coming SoonE! Online - With shooting wrapping up last week on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, George Lucas is finally ramping up production on those long-awaited Star Wars TV projects he has been promising.

I am a little skeptical about this. I will wait and see like everyone else.
