A group of 13 creditors who together are owed millions of dollars by David Bergstein and some 75 corporate entities he controls worldwide, including Capitol Films and ThinkFilm, have filed lawsuits in federal court in Los Angeles to force an involuntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy and the immediate appointment of a trustee to take charge of whatever assets and businesses remain.
The creditors want an injunction to halt the planned auction of rights to more than 800 movies, including "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," "The Air I Breathe" and Woody Allen's "Sweet and Lowdown," scheduled for Monday by a company apparently controlled by Ron Tutor, a construction executive who has been Bergstein's longtime "silent" partner in the movie business.
"Because Bergstein has demonstrated repeatedly that he is unfit and incompetent, it is imperative that the court immediately appoint a trustee," the creditors say in the suits filed Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

The IMDb250. A list of the top 250 films, as ranked by the users of the biggest movie internet site on the web. The list has been much maligned, particularly recently. It is however based upon the ratings provided by the users of The Internet Movie Database, which number into the millions. As such, it’s a perfect representation of the opinions of the movie masses, and arguably the most comprehensive ranking system on the internet. If you have a real interest in film, chances are you’re a regular visitor to IMDb.com.
It’s because of this that we at HeyUGuys (and in this case, we, is myself and Gary) have decided to set ourselves a project. To watch and review all 250 movies on the list! We’ve frozen the list as of 1st January this year (See below), as it is always ever changing. It’s not as simple as it sounds, »

the list #100-76, #75-51, #50-31, #30-16 and #15-1.
Awards for 2009 begin tomorrow or thereabouts.
Let's wrap this sucker up!
I had really intended to rewatch the top ten (why not?) before I ventured into the mental hospital. Trust me, that's where I've been heading as I've tried to rank the movies I love more than people (kidding! sort of) but who has the time? The 10th Annual FiLM BiTCH Awards begin tomorrow so I have to get a move on to wrap up the 2009 film year. It's possible I'll revisit this rundown at some point for a special project but who knows. These rankings are Not final. God... I'm not ready for the straightjacket yet. I need my hands free so I can talk.
What follows is more like tiers. The numbers function as mere placeholders.
Tier 3You could group them with #16-20... It doesn't mean
I don't worship them. »
