It's easy to forget that each time we turn on a light, we are contributing to the ecological damage caused by the coal that generates electricity in this country. The Last Mountain gives us plenty of reasons to remember.

Watch an incredible journey these filmmakers take in chronicling a small community's attempt to fight for their lives and the lives of half of America who is downstream.

Epic Star Wars Episode I Movie Review

On YouTube, he goes by "Red Letter Media" - a middle-aged guy named Mike from Milwaukee who is an avid Sci-Fi fan. How avid? He put together a 70 (Yes Seventy) minute review of Star Wars Episode I - the Phantom Menace. Now you're probably thinking a 70 minute movie review must be incredibly boring. Quite the contrary... Apparently this video is a "must see" in the hollywood movie community and presents a thorough indictment against George Lucas that even the most avid Star Wars fanatic probably can't argue against. Watch and learn and be wickedly entertained.

Majel Roddenberry Passes Away

[Television]
Gene Roddenberry's wife, Majel Roddenberry passed away today. We at BSAlert particularly mourn this loss because Majel was an outspoken secular humanist, as was her husband Gene, and this theme ran through all the Star Trek shows while Gene was involved.

Her romance with Roddenberry earned her the title "The First Lady of Star Trek." A fixture in the "Star Trek" franchise, her roles included Nurse Christine Chapel in the original "Star Trek," Lwaxana Troi in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and the voice of the USS Enterprise computer in almost every spin-off of the 1966 cult series. She recently reprised the voice role in the upcoming "Star Trek" film directed by J.J. Abrams.

Doctor Buys Huge Interest In Lion's Gate, Distributor of Sicko

[Movies]
Would you find it suspicious that a doctor with heavy ties to the HMO and Pharmaceutical industry suddenly went on a quest to acquire controlling interest in Lion's Gate, the distribution company for Michael Moore's movie, "Sicko" a week before it opened? And then the movie's release in theaters seems to rapidly diminish? Coincedence? Or has Lion's Gate now become a puppet of big pharma?

Bill Maher's upcoming film critical of religion is also set to be distributed by Lion's Gate. Are we going to see a trend of activist films being limited in distribution by their corporate controllers?

It's bad enough that going to the movies these days is like poking your head into a bar in a bad neighborhood: maybe you'll have a good time, or maybe you'll be sorry you ever got out of bed that day.

It's even worse that moviegoers are now subjected to at least fifteen minutes of obnoxious commercials prior to the movie; adding insult to injury is that often these advertisements are for lame television programs.

Could things get any worse?

Well, it looks like they have.

NBC To Dixie Chicks: Shut Up And Sing

Citing its policy barring ads dealing with "public controversy," the NBC network said on Friday it rejected a TV commercial for a new film documenting the furor over the Dixie Chicks' criticism of President George W. Bush.

The ad features footage of lead singer Natalie Maines declaring during a London concert in March 2003 that the band was "ashamed" to come from the same state -- Texas -- as Bush.

Since when has being ashamed of the president been "controversial?"

Check out the trailer for this interesting documentary here.

Kid Rock & Scott Stapp Sex Tape

[Pubic Relations]
[Movies]
Two people that one wouldn't expect to see in a sex scene are Kid Rock and former Creed frontman-turned-Jesus, Scott Stapp. Nonetheless, a company named Red Light District, the same who hawked the Paris Hilton sex tape, now plans to release this orgy of music personality mediocrity.

Update: A Florida woman who stars in the Kid Rock-Scott Stapp sex tape has filed a lawsuit against the California company that has recently tried to market the racy video of her 1999 tour bus encounter with the two rock stars. In a complaint filed yesterday in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court, the woman, identified only as "Jane Doe," contends she has suffered emotional distress (and had her, um, privacy invaded) as a result of the attempted sale of the video by World Wide Red Light District. While a federal judge last month halted the video's distribution at the request of Rock (real name: Robert Ritchie), segments of the sex tape have appeared online.

Ironically this is a French-made movie.

Movie Industry Ponders Why Box Office Sales Lagging

[Industry]
This week, executives in the movie/theatre business took a break from resting their heads comfortably up their butts to state that they're concerned over lagging attendence and receipts at theatres, citing one of the worst theatrical slumps in twenty years. Shortly thereafter they beamed with excitement about the new movies on the horizon such as Bewitched and War of the Worlds, then resumed their cranial-buttock encampment.

Maybe it's because I'm charged $7 to sit through twenty minutes of stupid commercials before the movie? Perhaps I'm sick of paying $4 for a root beer, and then wishing I was dead halfway into realizing that I paid actual money to see a bad remake of the Dukes of Hazard?

Of course, maybe this is all the fault of the internets?

Hard For Hollywood To Blame P2P With Record Breaking Sales?

[Movies]
The opening of Star Wars, Revenge of The Sith is breaking all sorts of box office records, and took in more than $16 Million on its first showing alone! This apparently hasn't stopped the film industry from whining that Internet piracy, and online trading of the movie is running them out of busines. One guy was cited for taking a picture of the movie screen.

I mean, it makes perfect sense. Who would want to pay $7.50 and see the movie on a hundred foot screen in 6+ channel sound when you can spend 200 hours downloading a low-quality video version with someone's thumb hanging off the left corner of the frame to watch on your laptop? Those Hollywood people are so intuitive and clever, I bet they're even working a prequel to Pearl Harbor.
