Movies/cinema/film
From Wikipedia: Film is a term that encompasses motion pictures as individual projects, as well as the field in general. The origin of the name comes from the fact that photographic film (also called filmstock) has historically been the primary medium for recording and displaying motion pictures. Many other terms exist — motion pictures (or just pictures or "picture"), the silver screen, photoplays, the cinema, picture shows, flicks — and commonly movies. Films are produced by recording actual people and objects with cameras, or by creating them using animation techniques and/or special effects. They comprise a series of individual frames, but when these images are shown rapidly in succession, the illusion of motion is given to the viewer. Flickering between frames is not seen due to an effect known as persistence of vision — whereby the eye retains a visual image for a fraction of a second after the source has been removed. Also of relevance is what causes the perception of motion; a psychological effect identified as beta movement. Film is an important art form; films can entertain, educate, enlighten and inspire audiences. The visual elements of cinema need no translation, giving the motion picture a universal power of communication. Any film can become a worldwide attraction, especially with the addition of dubbing or subtitles that translate the dialogue. Films are also artifacts created by specific cultures, which reflect those cultures, and, in turn, affect them.

Alfred Hitchcock
Alfred Hitchcock and his movies

Alfred Hitchcock (1899–1980), the British film director and producer, was a master of the suspense thriller genre. He began directing in the United Kingdom before working mostly in the United States from 1939 onwards, taking a dual citizenship in 1956. The "Master of Suspense" and his family lived in a mountaintop estate high above Scotts Valley, California, for 32 years, from 1940 to 1972. He directed more than fifty feature films in a career spanning six decades, from the silent film era, through the invention of talkies, to the colour era. Hitchcock was among the most consistently successful and publicly recognizable directors in the world during his lifetime, and remains one of the best known and most popular directors of all time, famous for his expert and largely unrivaled control of pace and suspense throughout his movies.

Alistair Sim
The films and life of Alister Sim

"This small attic room of cyberspace is intended to be a celebration of all things Alastair Sim. You may have come across our man in his definitive performance as Scrooge or in the delightful brother and sister roles in the St. Trinians' movies. Wonderful as these films are, there are even better films to his credit. There are even pretty poor films which Alastair enobles with cameo appearances. However, there is so much more to this majestic Scotsman than film; Alastair also has a superb track record in the theatre and even graced television with the odd performance or two. Best of all, Alastair, it seems, was an intelligent, wise and good man and I hope that these qualities shine through within this site."

A tall, stooping character actor with a doleful expression, droll wit and air of bewilderment, Alastair Sim was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on October 9, 1900, the youngest of four children. His father was Alexander Sim and his mother was Isabella McIntyre. His father owned his own tailor's shop and the family lived in rooms above. Alastair went to school in Bruntisfield and to Gillespie's School, where his father was a JP and a governor of the school. He left school at 14 and worked as a messenger in his father's tailoring shop and later worked at Gieves, men's outfitters, where he sold ties. In 1918 he studied to be an analytical chemist at Edinburgh University. He then joined the Officer's Training Corp. but the Armistice came just before he was sent out to the front. When he was released from the OTC, he lived rough for a year in the Highlands, finding employment with a group of migrants who did farm work. Eventually he returned to Edinburgh and worked in the Borough Assessor's Office.

In his early '20s, Alastair became a student at the Edinburgh Provincial Training Centre at Moray House, through which he obtained a post as the Fulton Lecturer in Elocution at New College, Edinburgh University from 1925 through 1930, teaching budding parsons how to speak. After his fame as an actor, he was elected a Rector of Edinburgh University from 1948 through 1951, beating out Harold Wilson by 2078 votes to 802 and was awarded an honorary LLD at the conclusion of his term.

He met his wife, Naomi Plaskitt when they were appearing in an amateur production of THE LAND OF HEARTS DESIRE by William Butler Yeats. He was 27 and she was 12. When she turned 14, Naomi enrolled at Alastair's own School of Drama and Speech Training where she also worked as his secretary. They married when Naomi turned 18 in August 1932. She wrote an autobiography in 1987 entitled Dance and Skylark: Fifty Years With Alistair Sim and details of Alastair's life and career are mainly from this, as well as WHO'S WHO IN THE THEATRE and Internet sources, such as the Internet Movie Data Base plus the personal knowledge and research of my friend in Australia, Ray Stanley. (The title of Naomi's book refers to an old naval order given in sailing ships when the vessel was becalmed).

After acting in amateur productions until he was 29, Alastair hoped to become a professional director but was advised by John Drinkwater, poet, playwright and producer and general manager of the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, that his best chance was to try to become an actor first, and work up to directing in time. Through this contact, he got his first role in OTHELLO and moved to London.

During WWII, Alastair and Naomi relocated to the country, first to Egypt Cottage and later to a place they had built and named "Forrigan" located at Newnham Hill, Henley-on-Thames, Oxon. They took in children who were sent away from London because of fear of the bombs dropping during the blitz. Among these was George Cole, who became practically a foster son. Alastair and George appeared in 10 films together and at least 9 West End plays, plus another which Alastair directed. Alastair and Naomi had one child of their own in August 1940, a daughter named Merlith . Also during the War, Alastair toured with ENSA (Entertainments National Service Association which did one play at a time and played for only one night at each service camp).

Best remembered nowadays for his definitive portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge, and by me in particular for his portrayal of the ladylike Miss Fritton, headmistress of that blight on the English school system, St. Trinian's, Alastair had an extensive stage career. He directed and appeared in a number of plays by Dr. Osborne Henry Mavor of Glasgow, whose pen name was James Bridie (who died in 1951 after a short illness). Michael Gilbert, the thriller writer, wrote three plays for Alastair, A CLEAN KILL, THE BARGAIN and WINDFALL.

All Movie Guide
A movie ratings and information site, based in the US.

"An All Movie Guide rating is an expression of how successfully a film achieves its thematic goals however ambitious or modest with star ratings from1 to 5 stars. All Movie ratings are generally determined by taking a number of factors into consideration, including -- but not limited to -- the critical consensus on a film at the time of its release; its quality versus other films in its genre, era, or director/star's filmography; its historic or social importance; its performance in year-end industry and critics' awards; and its success or failure with its intended audience. This site offers a cross-referenced index which allows you to search more than 200,000 feature films and documentaries using an unlimited combination of features or criteria, making it easy to find the film you are looking for even if you can only remember a few things about it. The searchable database includes reviews, information on cast and crew, and the film's availability on video and DVD. It also provides essays about film and a glossary of film terms."

All Movie Photos
All the photos of all the stars

Hundreds of thousands of photographs, and the number is growing all the time.

They appear to be studio pix, so there's nothing there that the stars and the studios don't want you to see.

All Readers.com
Book and movie reviews

"There are a zillion book review sites out there, but ours is different! For starters, we classify books based on plot, setting, character, and writing style. Therefore, if you know what kind of book you like, you can find other authors who write similar kind of stories.

"For example, if you like murder mysteries involving the murder of lawyers, you can use our detailed search to specifically search for all books involving murder mysteries where the victims are lawyers. If you prefer romances involving love triangles or love polygons, you can search all romances in our database to find all books that have that kind of plot. Just remember when searching that each genre (Literature, Romance, Mystery, etc.) has its own unique search engine, so be sure you're in the genre you want to do the searching in.

"Our site is unique in that our reviews are more useful than those of most other sites. Usually people will write variations of "Book good!" or "Characters good!" which is useless to readers who do not know what the reviewer's taste is. Our reviews will give you the general outline of the plot. Some would say this is "giving too much away"; we say this is giving you some idea of what the book is all about. It is our unique approach of helping you find just the book you were looking for, which drives over a million and a half visitors a month to our site."

Borat!
The official website of Borat Sagdiyev, Khazakhstan's leading television reporter

Borat is the story of a reporter for Khazakhstan Television, sent to America to report on life in "the greatest country in the world" (which he persists in calling the "US and A").

The film opens in Khazakhstan, where Borat's reporting responsibilities include coverage of the annual "Running of the Jew". Borat discusses his personal interests, which include ping-pong, sunbathing and "watch ladies make toilet", and introduces his sister, whom he describes as "number four prostitute in whole of Kazakhstan".

Soon after his arrival in America, Borat sees Pamela Anderson on TV, in an episode of Bay Watch, and resolves to travel to California to invite her to be his bride. On his way to California, Borat has many adventures, including:

* a visit to a southern mansion, where a banquet is being held under the auspices of the Magnolia Fine Dining Society, from which Borat is ejected when it emerges that the black lady who has accompanied him is a street walker

* a visit to a gun shop, whose owner has a number of helpful suggestions to make when Borat asks what gun he would recommend for shooting Jews

* a visit to a rodeo, where he advises his listeners that in Khazakhstan homosexuality is punished by hanging, to which one cowboy responds "We're trying to get that done over here, too"

* a visit to a college, where Borat leads students in a rosuing chorus of the traditional Khazakh folk song "Throw the Jew down the well"

When he reaches California Borat confronts Pamela Anderson at a book launching, where he proposes marriage and promises her that if she accepts he will give her her own plow. (One viewer of the film said that "there is no way Pamela Anderson is a good enough actress to convey the horror she expressed" when this proposal was made.)

Preview screenings of Borat start in Wellington tomorrow. At advance screenings in the US audience reaction has been extreme. One reviewer on the IMDb said that in the session he attended viewers were "on the edge of their seats, trying not to spray urine on those close to them".

Dudley Moore
The official website of the English comedian and musician.


DUDLEY MOORE
April 19, 1935
March 27, 2002
Dudley Moore was one of the most beloved and respected artists of our time. Actor, comedian, pianist, composer, conductor, and vocalist, Dudley was renowned for his work in all these areas. Best known to the public for his leading roles in smash hits such as Arthur, 10, Foul Play, and Unfaithfully Yours, he was internationally loved by his audiences. Dudley's first love was music. A highly-trained classical musician, he studied violin and organ at the Guildhall School of Music in London and attended Magdalen College at Oxford University as a scholarship student. In his teens, he was inspired by jazz pianists Erroll Garner and Oscar Peterson, and spent many years performing internationally with his own jazz trio.

As an actor and comedian, Dudley first came to the United States in 1962 with the innovative revue Beyond the Fringe, which was a hit on Broadway. The satire featured Dudley with Peter Cook, Jonathan Miller and Alan Bennett. In 1981, he performed A Salute to George Gershwin with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl, and in 1982, after a New York concert with violinist Robert Mann, resumed a classical career that took him around the globe in performances as a piano soloist with major orchestras. During the 1990’s, he played several Carnegie Hall Benefits for Music For All Seasons, Inc., for which he served as founding Advisory Board President, and he toured with long time two-piano partner, Rena Fruchter.

Dudley announced his battle with the degenerative neurological condition, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, in November of 1999, and subsequently devoted himself to raising money for two important charitable causes--the Dudley Moore Research Fund for PSP and Music For All Seasons, Inc. He died in New Jersey in March of 2002.

In Dudley’s memory, Martine Avenue Productions continues to bring his music to the public, carrying on his important commitments to artistic quality and to charity.

Eccentric Cinema.com
A site dedicated to "cult" movies

"Cult movies run the gamut from Z-grade schlock to trend-setting milestones, big budget curiosities and films which have developed a 'cult' following. Action, fantasy, horror, sci-fi, exploitation, martial arts — the cult film spectrum is diverse. In these pages you'll find the latest DVD (and even a few VHS) movie reviews, free audio and video downloads (including posters, WAVs, MP3s and video clips), plus links to the best cult movie sites. We sometimes LIKE bad movies. Naturally, film appreciation is a very subjective thing. We're applying individual standards and tastes here. One man's cheese is another's caviar... and even cheese has its gradations. In the realm of cult movies, S.B.T.G. ('So bad they're good') flicks can be hard to qualify. They may be abysmal motion pictures in a conventional sense yet veritable motherloads of unintentional humor. This can definitely be a good thing! Film reviews with an 'Extra Cheese' icon (see below) fit squarely in this category: genuinely bad movies which can be fun.

"Hope you like the site! I've been in love with horror, sci-fi and exploitation movies since I was a wee lad growing up on Air Force bases across America. This was back in the pre-cable days of four TV channels, when I had to sneak out of bed to catch the midnight monster show with the volume turned way down as to not awake the parents. A ravenous film collector in this digital age, I'd be buying and watching these flicks anyway... so why not write about 'em and put it on the web? Thus the genesis of Eccentric Cinema."

Edward Governo: Historian of Things That Never Were
Links to history that never happened

I can barely bring myself to tell you what this site is about.

As I type this William Shatner's immortal words to a group of persistent Trekkies - "Get a life!" - are ringing in my ears.

This site is divided into television, movies, books, games and comics and in each case (and there are more than 300 cases) what you're looking at is some fan's timeline for developments in an entirely imaginary world.

Star Trek is there, of course. ("...Federation obtains advanced warp technology from the representatives of the Kelvan Empire in Andromeda Galaxy, after they briefly hijack the USS Enterprise. The Kelvans settle a class M planet near the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy, and a robot ship is dispatched to Kelva with greetings from the Federation...")

And:

* Dr Who

* Highlander

* Robotech

* Gundam

* The X-Files

* Babylon 5

* Twin Peaks

* Battlestar Galactica

* Xena Warrior Princes

* Buffy the Vampire Slayer

* Bonanza

* Stargate

* Dragonball Z

and so on and on and on and on...

Go Fug Yourself
The bitchiest website in the world

Go FAQ Yourself: Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is this "fug"? I've never heard of it.

"Fug" comes from "fugly," which is a contraction of "fantastically ugly" (or an f-word more prurient, if you like, but we are clean and delightful young ladies who don't engage in that kind of filth, dammit).

Here's some etymology for you:

fug•ly (adj.)
frightfully ugly; of or pertaining to something beyond the boundaries of normal unattractiveness. Ex: "That 'Kabbalists Do It Better' trucker hat is fugly."

fug (n.)
1. A state of extreme ugliness. Ex: "The level of fug at the Video Music Awards is always hard to stomach."

2. A proper name for someone possessed of eternal heinousness, as Chloe Sevigny: "Oh look, there's Fug, looking all miserable and dour in her black turtleneck and white frilly farm dress."

fug•ging (v.)
The act of posting on one's blog in order to identify something excruciatingly ugly. Ex: "Hey, I am fugging Li'l Kim again for wearing only a tiny piece of cloth."

2. So "fugly" is like extreme ugliness?

Kind of -- we like to think of "ugly" as something that refers to an unchangeable condition, but also a condition above which people can rise.

Fugly, however, is a self-inflicted state, and no one seems to excel at dwelling in the depths of fug quite like pretty people with money to spare and little sense of how to spend it. Celebrities are always skipping around in public wearing things that are phenomenally perplexing; as these red-carpet dwellers are often considered trendsetters or bastions of Hip Present and Hip Future, we like to take them to task for careless choices. (Of particular concern: whomever got little girls thinking that miniskirts and Ugg boots were a stellar combination.)

3. Got it: You crack on celebrities. That means you're jealous, right?

You're not reading our blog -- you're reading our souls! Who wouldn't want to go to a premiere dressed like a drunk genie? Just the other day we turned to each other and each said, "I wish we had some gold lame hot pants. Damn Beyonce for having what we want." Jessica is frequently in fits over the fact that neither of us can grow an ill-advised mustache, and when we're being honest with ourselves, we know that we wish we could go out in public wearing only napkins.

4. You two need to stop eating Twinkies and get on the treadmill. Clearly you're fat and bitter, and no one will ever love you.

We would get off the couch, if the donut glaze on the backs of our thighs hadn't hardened into a thick paste, forever yoking us to the sofa.

5. But, seriously, who are you guys?

You can learn more about us here.

6. I said seriously.

There is nothing un-serious about Joan Collins's cleavage. Period. But if you must know, no, we're not a pair of gay men, and yes, Heather and Jessica are our real names.

7. I know who that Random Fug is! It's...

Don't worry -- we know, too, so unless we printed it and got it wrong, you don't need to e-mail us (although we appreciate the enthusiasm). We don't mean for the "Random Fug" postings to be a guessing game; we just sometimes can't or don't work the name of the person into the flow of the post itself.

8. Where are the comments? I need the comments!

Things were getting busy in there, and more than a little hateful in ways that made us uncomfortable. (And if bitches like us are uncomfortable, well, you know things got very messy in there.) We generally don't have the time -- or the software, really -- to moderate them the way they desperately needed to be handled, so it became necessary to close the comments for the immediate future.

It might not be forever, but it's for now.

9. What about forums?

See above -- those require extensive moderating and their own intricate FAQ to keep some of the nonsense that appeared in the comments from spilling over into a forum and getting a life of its own. We're not ruling out the idea, but we're also not going to pursue it until we have copious time to do it RIGHT. This isn't something we want to half-ass.

10. I'll do it for you! I'll moderate whatever you want me to moderate.

Thank you, very sincerely. People are so generous, and offers like this have been greatly appreciated. But we're not looking for outside moderators at this point in time; when we do, you'll be the first to know. We promise.

11. Where can I get an "I Hate What You're Wearing" t-shirt?

We're so sorry -- those were an April 2005 pre-order only, meaning that the lovely Glark from Glarkware only made as many as were ordered. But in the future we plan to do more with shirts and the like, so keep your eyes peeled.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Wikipedia's entry on Douglas Adams's wonderful books is superb.

* First, there was a book.

* Then more books.

* Then there was the original BBC radio series.

* Then there was a TV series.

* Then there was a movie.

The books were wonderful.

The radio series was even better than the books. Yes, it's true. Listen to this series on CD or cassette and die with a smile on your face.

The TV series was dreadful. Oh God, it was awful.

The movie was much, much, much, much worse than the movie. Vogon poetry is mild by comparison.

There are lots of websites on the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, but most of them are fairly disappointing (especially the BBC's). There should be some correlation between the humour of the books and its wholly original style and the kind of pleasure you get out of visiting a website about them, shouldn't there?

Wikipedia's entry, however, is wonderful - the best on the web - I think (and stand to be corrected).

Here is some of the man himself:

"Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape- descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

"And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches. Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.

"And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, one girl sitting on her own in a small cafe in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.

"Sadly, however, before she could get to a phone to tell anyone about it, a terribly stupid catastrophe occurred, and the idea was lost forever. This is not her story.

"But it is the story of that terrible stupid catastrophe and some of its consequences.

"It is also the story of a book, a book called The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - not an Earth book, never published on Earth, and until the terrible catastrophe occurred, never seen or heard of by any Earthman. Nevertheless, a wholly remarkable book..."

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move."

"This must be a Thursday,' said Arthur to himself, sinking low over his beer. 'I never could get the hang of Thursdays."

"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't."

"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."

"So long, and thanks for all the fish."
