How to buy the rights to a crappy movie?

My friend is a fan of really crappy 80s and 90s movies. I want to buy him the rights to some piece of %$&^ film. Of course, I'd prefer it had some star quality (could just be John Belushi's brother or something). How much would something like this cost? How would I go about doing it? I don't suppose that there's an ebay style auction site where you could do something like that?

Fashion documentaries that simulate people watching?

I love the aesthetic of the pictures that Bill Cunningham takes for the New York Times or that Scott Schuman takes for The Sartorialist. I often wish their pictures moved. Are there any good documentaries or other videos that essentially allow you to stare at interestingly-dressed people in urban environs and just watch what they do?

What are your favorite books, movies, and essays about food?

I am putting together a syllabus for a college composition course. I chose "food" as the theme for this semester. I would like to include examples of different kinds of writing about food, ranging from essays to fiction to poetry, as well as some movies. What are your suggestions? I'm open to anything, as long as it has food in it! I already have a list of some of the obvious ones (Michael Pollan, Dinesen's "Babette's Feast," Jiro Dreams of Sushi), but I am hoping the HiveMind can help me make this the most awesome-- and delicious-- writing class ever.

List of Criterion Movies on Hulu?

Is there a full list of the Criterion movies available on Hulu? Hulu recently borked the searching on their website making it impossible to search on directors or genres (or almost anything). You can browse to the Criterion section of but there doesn't seem to be a "show me all the movies" subsection. Is there a 3rd party site actually that lists them all?

Help me remember this artsy film about the American south.

Help me remember this artsy film about the American south. It came out within the last 5 years I think, I believe there was a number in the title and the theme was something like the modernization of the south. It had 'Koyaanisqatsi' - like composed shots and voice over by a man with a southern accent. I remember a shot of a canoe filled with books inside a flooded building.

iPad to Macbook

I took several long videos (25 - 50 minutes each) with the camera on my new iPad, and now I would like to transfer them to my Macbook, so that I can convert them to .avi files and give them to a friend. Dropbox will not upload them ('upload pending' forever). Backing up the iPad results in many folders with random numbers, none of which look big enough to be the videos. What should I try next?
