Faith Fighter Game Banned After Muslim Complaint

A few years ago in Victoria, Pastors Daniel Scot and Danny Nalliah ran a conference on ministering to Muslims. A group of Muslims attended in order to be offended. After they were offended as planned, they complained to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Although they made it clear throughout the seminar that Christians were called …

Mars Attacks, Stalin Reacts

In1996 Tim Burton directed a film called Mars Attacks, starring Jack Nicholson. It was fun. This trailer on YouTube is an ad for a strategy game based on that film.  The game is called Stalin vs Martians. It looks like a pretty ordinary strategy game. But the dancing Stalin is unmissable.

No Evidence Against Slumdog Dad

Mumbai police have found nothing in newspaper reports, or in video of a meeting between a fake sheik and Rafiq Qureshi, to suggest he was trying to sell his daughter, Slumdog Millionaire star Rubina Ali. There never was anything to this. The real story should be how a shonky News Of The World journalist lured Rubina Ali’s father to a …

Susan Boyle Sings ‘Cry Me A River’

This was recorded ten years ago for a CD produced for a local charity. There’s no video, but her clarity, expression and accuracy of pitch make this something I will listen to over and over again. In other Susan Boyle news, Elaine Paige, whom Susan said was her model, has offered to sing and record …

Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince Trailer

A couple of posts with an entertainment theme today, so I thought I might as well include this trailer for the new Harry Potter movie – Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. David Yates, who directed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – easily the best of the series so far, and better …

Green Lantern Gets Green Light

Sorry, that was just too hard to resist. Warner Bros will start filming the Green Lantern in Sydney in November. It wasn’t one of my favourite comics – I loved Iron Man (and enjoyed the film version with Robert Downey Jnr, too) and Dr Strange. But Green Lantern was still pretty cool. His abilities come from …

Mel Gibson’s Russian Beauty?

Oh please. I have no idea of the reasons for Mel and Robyn Gibson’s planned divorce. But I’m sure it has nothing to do with blonde russian pop stars. There’s no reason why I, or anyone else, should know the reasons for their divorce. It’s their business, and that of their children. The daily changing accusations …

Geriatric Porn Star an Inspiration?

Not to me. Thanks anyway. 75 year old Shigeo Tokuda started in the porn business when he was 59. He was interviewed last Monday on the set of his latest film in which he is shown as a master of sex. In the film he used vibrators, whips and candle lights to show the master satisfying a 36-year-old actress. …

And is the first South American ever to win the US Masters golf tournament. Angel Cabrera’s US Master’s prize money is a $1.35 million share of the $7.5 million dollar purse That’s enough to park in Sydney for nearly 30 years. Or to buy Kylie Minogue 270 facials. I hope the media isn’t too hard on Kylie …

Where the Wild Things Are

I loved Maurice Sendak’s book Where the Wild Things Are as a child. It came out when I was five, a perfect age to be when my mum read it to me. I think it is still one of the best books ever written for children. It is moving, funny, scary in places, and ultimately triumphant and happy. The story …

Three Interesting Lists

The top 100 films (listed by genre) – a Guinness list. I have seen all of them except a couple of the silent films. Plenty of room for debate in this list. I might have put John Carpenter’s The Thing in horror instead of The Shining. Although I like Kubrick, that film always seemed to me …

Courtney Love Ripped Off for Over $700 Million

That’s about $45 million in cash and $700 million in real estate. She didn’t notice the money was going until there wasn’t any left. This is the estate left by Curt Cobain to Courtney Love and their daughter Frances Bean Cobain. I am baffled for two reasons. First, how do you just ‘lose’ $700 million …
