Gold Derby Oscar Documentary finalists. Go Trouble the Water ! Win that thing (not that it will but I can dream. More on this race later when I have more time.

And I have to share this soul-destroying clip on Prince of Persia (coming in 2010) from ET (thanks Topless Robot) on account of it... well. I don't know quite why I'm sharing it. Whim? Untreated Gyllenhaalism? Jake's "muscle implants" maybe.

This movie looks t-e-r-r-i-b-l-e (not that most on set 'making of's don't make their movies look cheap and badly costumed and whatnot. But that Bruckheimer reference to Lawrence of Arabia doesn't inspire generous feelings, you know?

I don't know why you're so esceptical, Nat. I really think we're looking at the next Lawrence of Arabia. :)

You weren't kidding. My soul is destroyed.

What are you talking about? Jakes abs..oh erm I mean Prince Of Persia will be a masterpiece.

Also may I just say i am continutally fascintated with your ability to use the word "link" in witty puns.

I haven't seen "Trouble the Water," but I will be cheering on "Encounters at the End of the World" and "Man on Wire" to grab documentary nominations. "Encounters" would be a lovely film to award Herzog for since it really represents his fascinating documentary style.

I'm glad the big studios passed on Twilight and that Summit got it. And after watching Amy Adams in Enchanted I'm a fan. I can't wait to see her in Sunshine Cleaning, that movie looks quirky and fun.

The Larwence of Arabia comment may not inspire generous feelings, but Jakes buff body does! : )
