Ayman Abu Aita knew there was something odd about the Austrian
TV reporter who asked to be kidnapped last year, showed risque
video clips of himself stripping and suggested that Osama Bin
Laden shave his beard so he wouldn't look like a "dirty wizard."
Early Friday morning it looked like Sacha Baron Cohen had done it again
with his new film Brüno. With post-midnight ticket sales in the neighborhood of $1.6 million some Hollywood insiders were predicting around $50 million for the opening weekend
Well, $50 million didn't happen. Brüno finished the weekend with a
respectable $30.4 million. But, $20 million is a pretty big gap... what
caused such an erroneous projection? Well, TIME thinks Twitter is to blame.
Did Twitter cost Brüno millions? Tell us what you think.
"Brüno's box-office decline from Friday to Saturday indicates that the film's brand of outrage was not the sort to please most moviegoers — and that their tut-tutting got around fast. Brüno could be the first movie defeated by the Twitter effect."
With techsavvy moviegoers tweeting their opinions to literally millions of followers, the micro-blogging site can make or break a film in one day.

The “us” versus “them” mentality is prevalent in American culture, as is the need for an “enemy” to which the people look to government to protect and save them…never questioning that the government may have motive to keep its subjects in fear.
[Ernie will be soooo pleased! A remake of his favorite movie.] 2081 depicts a dystopian future in which, thanks to the 212th Amendment to the Constitution and the unceasing vigilance of the United States Handicapper General, everyone is finally equal
I went to see the movie "Star Trek" on Sunday. While it is an interesting new twist on Gene Roddenberry's brainchild, I did not like the film and, so far, it is the worst movie of 2009.
...we asked filmmaker Kevin Smith what he thought about recasting Khan in a “Trek” sequel. (Order you Star Trek lunchboxes now before you are placed at the end of the 200 year back order list :)
Ambani's high-flying life could have ended as pebbles and gravel were found in the helicopter's engine -- debris that could have caused the craft to crash. Then the technician who discovered the suspected sabotage turned up dead.
Not since Wrath of Khan has the TREK franchise been this good. Kirk is at his ass-kicking best. And Spock administers a couple smack-downs, too. Ooops. Did I say too much?

The International is an upcoming American action-drama film. The film follows a pair that investigates corruption within a banking institution. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out!
"Independence has always required strength and perseverance, and the human spirit always requires independence."
"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is the Academy Awards heavyweight with 13 nominations, yet the shadow of Batman loomed large with the absence of "The Dark Knight" in the best-picture race.
I earnestly hope the film generates a wave of positive word-of-mouth, because it is a nearly ideal family film ...because it is gently subversive in promoting the idea that the increasingly militarized government law enforcement system is at best use
