The cliché is that the black guy dies first in horror movies. But can you name a film where that actually happens? I can’t think of any.

To clarify, that statement of Liddy’s isn’t racist. The one where he refers to the Spanish language as “illegal alien” is.
Racist clown G. Gordon Liddy says he hopes Sotomayor isn’t menstruating during Supreme Court hearings. http://tinyurl.com/lq9jsd
@DavidHarley I think it violates the spirit of Unfollow Friday® if the horrible things you say are true.
It’s really hot today, so I’m thinking of inviting the neighborhood children over to swim in my bathtub. #unfollowfriday
I forgot all about Unfollow Friday®, where you try to get rid of followers! Hey everyone, I think child abuse is funny! #unfollowfriday

Is it like “The Truman Show,” where they’re being filmed without their knowledge? Because otherwise, he DID sign up for public scrutiny.
Jon, of “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” in Ent.Wkly: “I did not sign up for the public scrutiny.” Wait — does he not know he’s on a TV show?
What a great weekend of new releases! Pixar’s “Up” (reviewed at Film.com) is just about as fine a production as you’re accustomed to from that brilliant bunch of computer nerds. And pulling you in the opposite direction is Sam Raimi’s twisted and scary — but PG-13 — “Drag Me to Hell,” whose trailers don’t do it justice AT ALL. I’d already seen the film when I saw the trailer, and the trailer still made me say, “Wow, I wouldn’t want to watch that.” (Side note to my mom: Wanna go see this when I’m home next weekend? You will love it!)
In limited release is “Departures” (review at Cinematical), a Japanese film that won the foreign-language Academy Award this year even though no one but Academy voters had heard of it. It’s a worthy entry, probably not what I would have voted for, but a good film nonetheless, about a man who returns to his hometown and gets a job working with a mortician.
If you don’t follow me on Twitter, I won’t really know.
