1. "2007 Screen Actors Guild Awards: Winners": The Last Little Miss King & Queen of Scotland.
2. "The 5 Biggest Mismatches in Movie Fight History": With thanks to Patrick Walsh for pointing out the link.
["Action movies have a pretty simple formula when it comes to killing bad guys: you leave the toughest villain for last. It's why at the end of Die Hard, that dead Russian guy jumps out of a body bag, somehow still armed with an automatic weapon. The filmmakers knew that, despite defying the laws that govern the physical universe, if they had ended the movie killing anyone else, it just wouldn't have felt right. Leaving the toughest bad guy for last creates a sense of suspense as to whether or not the hero is going to be able to take him. So if the last bad guy is a total pussy, well, the audience is probably going to notice. Below, we count down the five most mismatched climactic fights in action movie history."]
3. "Modern Martyrs": An interview with Aleksandr Sokurov's frequent screenwriter Yury Arabov.
["Until recently, Yury Arabov was primarily known to the general public as the screenwriter of several notable films by art-house director Alexander Sokurov, and, to a rather smaller audience, as a poet. In the past year, though, he gained visibility when NTV television broadcast two high-profile miniseries for which he wrote the scripts: adaptations of Nikolai Gogol's "Dead Souls" and Boris Pasternak's "Doctor Zhivago." Now, Arabov has published a novel, "Flagellants," which is a lament for the death of the Russian intelligentsia—and, according to the author, a reflection of his own conflicted feelings about being an artist in present-day Russia."]
4. "New Yorkers Score Big at Sundance": The Reeler wraps up Sundance.
["When you looked at the odds, it all made sense in a way: With upwards of 50 films from New York programmed between the shorts, documentary and dramatic competitions at this year's Sundance Film Festival, nobody really could have been that surprised to see the New York contingent take home a suitcase worth of hardware—including the Dramatic Audience Award (Grace is Gone) and both the Documentary (Manda Bala) and Dramatic (Padre Nuestro) Grand Jury Prizes—at Saturday night's awards show. "Numb," said Padre Nuestro director Christopher Zalla, who told The Reeler about his reaction to juror Sarah Polley's announcement at the end of the ceremony."]
5. "A long time ago...": Edward Copeland announces a Springtime Blog-a-thon.
["30 years ago, May 25 to be exact ... in theaters across the United States a little film called Star Wars opened and changed much of how Hollywood works, for both good and bad."]
