Kate Beckinsale plays a U.S. Marshall at an Antarctica station who just happens to discover the continent's first murder victim ever. (I'm not going to say this movie isn't believable, but I'm pretty sure there's no U.S. Marshall in Antarctica who looks like Katie B! Or anywhere else for that matter.) If you can suspend your disbelief in the casting, this is an entertaining movie well worth the watch. It doesn't hurt when Kate strips down to sports bra and panties, of course.
As the war between the Death Dealers and the Lycans rages on, the vampiric Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and her werewolf hybrid lover, Michael (Scott Speedman), set out to uncover the origins of the centuries-long conflict, putting them up against an ancient bloodsucker obsessed with resurrecting his brother, the original Lycan. With Tony Curran, Derek Jacobi and Bill Nighy. 106 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French; Subtitles: English, French.
A predictable and at times slightly boring movie is made a lot better by an outstanding performance by Frances McDormand, including a nude scene (which kind of surprised me :-).
An engaged couple goes to live with his record-producer Mother while finishing his internship and her research. What he didn't know is that his mother is in the middle of producing a record at the house.
While being drawn into the hell-raising record world of the mother, she winds up in a relationship with both the mother and the mother's lead-man boyfriend, while he gets envolved with a female resident. The big problem is you always know where the movie is going, and only McDormand's performance was outstanding.
Slow-moving 1994 mystery tells of an art restorer who uncovers a hdden message while restoring an old painting. The message gives clues to the killer who commited a centuries-old murder. While trying to figure out this ancient whodunit, people around the restorer suddenly start to be murdered, making the solution more urgent.
The movie is very slow to develop, and often plods through its plot, but fans of tricky mysteries may still consider this worth watching. I enjoyed it even though I was annoyed by the slow pace. Some nice nudity by Kate Beckinsale made it a lot more enjoyable. :-)

Late night talk show hosted by former TV weatherman David Letterman. A lot of hip people prefer Letterman's slightly edgier fare over the mainstream Jay Leno, who kills him in the ratings every night, but honestly, Dave hasn't been edgy since about 1993. I used to tape him in high school, but now if I watch one of their shows at all it's usually about the guest, not the host.
