Pathetic Evil Empire, A Movie Review, and Today's Hot Chick

In game check on the Yanks/Tigers - Yanks are in the process of coughing up an 11-2 lead, as they currently lead the game 11-8 in the 4th inning! How sweet, if they piss this one away, just like yesterday, and come one step closer to an off-season of oblivion.

I watched Curse of the Golden Flower yesterday and was pretty impressed. Starring Chow Yun Fat and Gong Li , and directed by Yimou Zhang, this was a movie filled with stunning visuals, lots of palace intrigue, and the figh scenes are epic and very well choreographed. At times I was a bit confused, especially regarding the relationship between the Emperor and his Empress (Chow Yun Fat and Gong Li) . The acting is top much, the cinematography is brilliant, and while I wouldn't put this on the must own list, it is definitely worth another watch.

Today's Hot Chick is MOntclair N.J.'s own Christina Ricci. I enjoyed her work as far back as her roles with Cher and Winona Ryder in Mermaids, her great Tuesday Addams in the Addams family, but her hot chick status was achieved in the terrific The Opposite of Sex. As the buxom, sassy and ultimately sexy as hell lead she definitely broke out and showed that she could carry an entire film. Although at times she has lost too much weight, thus lessening the impact of those bodacious ta-ta's and over emphasizing her somewhat triangle like head (ala Elaine on Seinfeld), I think Christina looks damned fine in both of the pics here.

For some reason, she doesn't do it for me. She barely trips the meter on the hotness scale.
