Just to Cross the Road...

What would it take just to get to other side of the road in Norilsk, Russia? Watch this video... and try to guess who'll make it, and who'll get blown away -

Norilsk in Siberia routinely gets minus 50 degrees Celsius weather. We had a huge dump of snow and minus 45 wind chill all last week in Calgary, and watching this makes me feel very cozy and warm inside.

"Tropic Thunder" thunders on with even more tropicality:
on Director's cut DVD




Tropic Thunder was recently released unrated and uncut.
Here is a short review from A. Abrams:

"This is a director's cut - unrated, uncivilized, rough, bristling and ungrateful chunk of ridiculous moviemaking... it is, generally speaking, typical guy madness: capped, canned and delivered (or rather spread in a thick steamy layer) all over your big screen TV. Lick it up, enjoy the rich frothy exploits of five guys trying to deal with a bunch of murderous hilarity hitting the fan all at once. War movies? This DVD redefines the genre, just like Mr. Bean redefined a Nazi soldier not long ago. There is a rich glob of unadultered humor hidden somewhere inside this skull-encrusted feature-rich DVD. See if you can find it."
