Yeah, whenever the movie ground to a halt, I just stared at her for awhile. BTW, on some websites, they say Gong Li, others say Li Gong. Why is that? Also, I can't believe she's in her 40's...she looked as young as Hannibal in that film!

I believe the Chinese/Japanese have a naming system that is essentially reverse of ours. So in China you'd say Li Gong but in America we'll say Gong Li.

I know little about the way it is in China, but yes, in Japan the family name comes first, then the given name.

Letters from Iwo Jima - pretty good movie. There were a few parts that too obvious to be saddening, but there wasn't anything else to complain about.

Do you happen to be married to Buttocks Incontinentia? Do you know Maximus Naughtius.

No, no, no, that's the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything™. The Meaning of Life™ is 69.

I just watched Snatch.

It's a very funny movie, clearly the best Guy Ritchie has ever directed.

Jason Statham and especially Brad Pitt were excellent in this one.

No, NO! It's eat your greens and get off your bullocks every once and awhile and into the theaters.

And now for something completely different:

"How long have you been a robber?"

"Four feet two"

I just watched An Inconvenient Truth.

It really makes you think about a lot of things.
