Movie Minesweeper - The Numb Left Arm And Tightness Of The Chest Edition

- A special edition DVD of Saturday Night Fever is coming. Most amusing-sounding feature? Dance Like Travolta with John Cassese. Sign me up.

- The Alliance of Women Film Journalists have compiled a Top 100 films list of their own in response to the AFI run-down from last week. Sadly, it contains some laughable inclusions (Bend it Like Beckham, The Hours, Lost in Translation, Monsoon Wedding, Nowhere in Africa, Whale Rider) but then, I suppose, so did the AFI effort.

- Rutger Hauer has suggested September as the date for a Blade Runner: Final Cut theatrical release. I heard that too - but then heard that maybe this was to change, so don't take Hauer's word as gospel just yet.

- 20 odd pages of Buffy comics are available in a new online preview right now. Not Season 8 stuff, I'm afraid, but Buffy nonetheless.

- Marion Cotillard is to be this year's recipient of the Hollywood Film Festival's Hollywood Breakthrough Actress of the Year Award (say that three times fast). About time too - the very latest she could be said to have broken through is in 2003, with Big Fish.

- See Quentin Tarantino indulge his foot fetish in close-up, explicit detail. Not for the faint of stomach, as they say.

- Mark Millar has been knocking about on the set of Wanted. He certainly seems impressed with James McAvoy's performance.
