If you love movies, nothing is more fun than going to Rotten Tomatoes , the film review aggregation site, and seeing what films have worked and which ones haven't. The data offer endless possibilities for mischief and enlightenment. A couple of years ago I kept a running tab on every film released by 20th Century Fox, seeing how long the studio could go without distributing a film that actually topped the 50 fresh rating mark at Rotten Tomatoes. More recently, someone at the Marginal Revolution economics blog composed a graph of all of the Rotten Tomatoes scores for Night Shyamalan's films, starting with "The Sixth Sense" and ending with "The Last Airbender.

Edwards, 54, is president and CEO of Irvine-based Edwards Theatres, which has grown from the one Monterey Park facility his dad opened in 1930 to more than 725 screens at 90 venues in California and Idaho, including state-of-the-art showcases with stadium seating and wall-to-wall screens.

Your July 15 front page carried a story that the Bush administration, having scrapped U.S. participation in the Kyoto Protocol, may now be looking for technological schemes to reduce global warming. Your story touched on the incredibly complex chain reactions and unknown side effects this "geo-engineering" (or managing carbon pollution) could cause. On the same front page, it was reported that the Bush administration promised diesel-powered subs to Taiwan that it cannot deliver. This is a White House that cannot ascertain in advance a rather simple question of what military hardware it does or does not have.

On the Campaign Trail . . . We Think: New Yorker magazine reports that after he leaves office, President Clinton may run for the Senate. "That's a switch. It seems like only yesterday that he was running from the Senate." (Argus Hamilton) Changing Channels: Starting this month, half of all new TVs will be built with a V-chip to help parents filter out inappropriate programs.

Phil Mickelson won the Scottish Open on Sunday, but in an exhibition of Happy Gilmore-style golf shots the left-handed American was not up to par. A video of the run-up style drive has gone viral thanks to the European PGA Tour, of which the Scottish Open is a part. As the video shows, Mickelson, like everyone else, sized up how to approach the shot that became famous in the Adam Sandler movie "Happy Gilmore," which features a hockey player becoming a golfer despite an unusual run-up swing.

Grumpy Cat, the Internet feline celebrity known for her disdainful expression, has a movie deal. Broken Road Productions, the company behind the Kevin James vehicle "Paul Blart Mall Cop" and the Adam Sandler movie "Jack and Jill," has optioned the rights to make a film based on Grumpy Cat's persona. Grumpy Cat will speak in the film, a la the 2004 live action Garfield movie. A mixed breed owned by Arizona resident Tabatha Bundesen, Grumpy Cat's real name is Tardar Sauce (yes, that's how it's spelled)

There are no potty jokes, no crass Rob Schneider cameos or anybody by the name of Zohan in Adam Sandler's holiday movie, "Bedtime Stories," unwrapping in theaters on Christmas Day. "It's the Adam Sandler movie that moms are actually going to want their kids to see," says director Adam Shankman ("Hairspray," "The Pacifier"). "We have never seen him sweeter. It is a true Disney film."

John Alvin, who carved a niche for himself in Hollywood as the creator of evocative movie posters that drew generations of viewers into theaters to see films such as "Blazing Saddles," "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" and "Beauty and the Beast," died of a heart attack Wednesday at his home in Rhinebeck, N.Y. He was 59. In the 1970s when Alvin began his career in cinematic art, the movie poster or "key art" was still the preeminent means of advertising new films.
