Discussion on visual humor turns out one-sided, flat

(11/19/07 6:14am)

Between 30 and 40 students and faculty attended the discussion. Each attendee was given a blank piece of paper and a pencil and asked to write down responses to five works of photography and art that were projected on a screen in the front of the room. The anonymous responses were read aloud, and students and faculty voiced their opinions about the works. The conversation was then steered toward visual humor on campus and in American media, particularly that which can be viewed as racist or sexist. Corresponding examples were projected on the screen.

'Beowulf' delivers impressive, thrilling CGI action

(11/19/07 6:13am)

One thing's for sure: never have the Dark Ages looked so chic. "Beowulf" was filmed two years ago, but has since been labored over by a team of digital animators who have given every frame of the movie a computer generated imagery-facelift. The result resembles an eerily realistic video game, in which the actors play digital avatars of themselves. As the titular Scandinavian warrior, Ray Winstone looks about 50 pounds lighter than usual; Angelina Jolie, meanwhile, has been transformed into a buck-naked she-demon, whose sensitive areas are concealed by strategically placed slime.
