More a stupid article than a stupid headline, but man, this one's a doozy:

Sci-fi weekend planned at Landmark Loew's Jersey Theater

Quote
It's time for a little sci-fi in Jersey City. The Landmark Loew's Jersey Theater has quite a line-up this weekend. If you've never seen the classic original "Aliens," which spawned a series of sequels, this is your chance to see it on the big screen.

The film, starring Sigourney Weaver, Micheal Biehn, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, will be shown at 8:20 p.m. Saturday, following a 1902 silent film, "A Trip to the Moon." That film will be shown with organ accompaniment.

"Aliens" was released in 1986 and was directed by John Cameron.


Ugh, where to start . . .

"Aliens" is a sequel, not the original film. That would be "Alien," from back in 1979. Also, "Aliens" was directed by *James* Cameron, not John Cameron. But at least those are the only mistakes.

Oh wait . . .

Quote
On Saturday at 6 p.m., you can see the silent "A Trip to the Moon," followed by the classic, "The Day the Earth Stood Still, starring Patricia Neal and Michael Rennie and Sam Jaffee. Released in 1951 it is one the first and most famous films about space travel -- its image of a bullet-shaped space ship hitting the smiling face of the moon is iconic.


So, no. "The Day the Earth Stood Still" is about an alien that comes to earth. "A Trip to the Moon" is the first (I guess foremost? Isn't that redundant?) film about space travel, with the bullet-shaped space ship and everything.

Quote
The Landmark Loew's in located in Journal Square in Jersey City, across from the PATH station.


Well, at least they got that part right.

Any guesses as to what he was singing? Love Gun?





When crooning fails to woo back wife, Jersey City suspect pulls fake gun on woman, police say
By Ken Thorbourne | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- After failing to woo back his estranged wife by singing love songs over the phone, a 42-year-old city man showed up to her home and pointed a fake firearm at her, according to police reports.

Desmond Burno was charged early this morning with burglary, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, terroristic threats, endangering the welfare of children, and unlawful possession of an imitation firearm, police reports said.

The wife, who told police she is separated from Burno, said she received repeated phone calls from him between 11 p.m. and midnight in which he was singing love songs in an attempt at reconciliation, reports said.

When the crooning fell flat, Burno paid his wife a surprise visit at her Randolph Avenue apartment.

The woman said she was wearing nothing but undergarments when Burno barged into the apartment. He pointed the gun at her and said, "We need to talk, or else," the woman told police. Read more
