RTC's Movies For The
Next Millenium

The true story of a woman's needs
in a world full of Backstreet Boys.

Coming Sooner Than You Think

know I didn't know." --The Doctor

A Mini-Memo To Courtney Love
Things we think of when we see Courtney Love at an awards show: Harrison Ford jumping from the prison bus, Jon Voight riding into a fateful tunnel, Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor's high-speed antics. This year, the human train wreck was illogically chosen to present the Best Song award at the 2000 Golden Globes. Ms. Love, dismayed at the omission of "The Great Beyond" from her movie, Man on the Moon, announced on the pre-show interview that she was going to sing a few bars from the REM song onstage.

Sure enough, she stepped up to the mike singing, "I'm pushing that elephant up the hill...", then coyly added, "Aren't I subversive?"

Well, Courtney, you can stop wondering, because it's NOT subversive if you announce it to millions of people before you do it.

And if it keeps you off of future awards shows, the actual lyrics are, "I'm pushing that elephant up the stairs." No word how whether REM will ever contribute a song to another film soundtrack, but it wouldn't surprise us if they didn't.

Headline News reports:
The makers of Snow Falling in Cedars allowed actual Japanese Detainment Camp victims to act as extras in the film's camp scenes. What?!? What's next? Spielberg recruited Jews for stunt double work on Schindler's List?

... .. LOLA ... ..
Watch closely during the opening credits of Run Lola Run. Each actor's face is shown onscreen along with their character's signature of their name. Look for the signature for the Elderly Blind Lady, who cheekily checks in in Braille.
