With projection screens in the foreground and picturesque mountains in the background, what more could anyone ask for in a movie watching experience? If your answer is Vin Diesel, you probably would not have enjoyed the Seven Minute Film Fest.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Mr. Bailey is right to refer to the sexist advertising in this paper as disgusting. What I find more disgusting, and frankly insulting, is that the ad has run again with a happy face on the button.

The University of Calgary community can choose to not support sexist advertising in its paper. A few advertising dollars do not justify the support of material that condones and furthers the degradation of women in our society.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I thank you for addressing the issue of the offensive text on the button in the ad for the Whiskey, and I am glad that Victor Choy addressed this issue as well. I would also like to comment on the statement issued by Jeff Craig of Toqueboy Studios. It is nice that Toqueboy Studios has such a wonderful business in Calgary, however it would have also been nice if the ad in question was discussed a little more thoroughly, as it was mentioned only in passing.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Calgary nowhere near world class," Sept. 4, 2003,

I would like to respond to Kristopher Foster's Sept. 4 letter regarding the qualities of a world class city by extending some of his criteria to the University of Calgary.

  Not so protective servicesPDF files may take a moment to load

On an ordinary Sunday afternoon, some random passengers and I were on the C-Train. Calgary Transit's protective services, the transit police, to abuse a term, embarked and disembarked, audibly disappointed that almost everyone had paid their fares.

  The lowdown on the RundownPDF files may take a moment to load

The review for an action/comedy movie starring The Rock, Stiffler and Christopher Walken should write itself. The casting choices are more transparent than those in the upcoming Jackie Chan/John Cleese/Schwarzenegger vehicle, as if the executives at Universal got together over drinks one night and asked each other, "Who are the most bankable but mismatched stars that we could possibly put together in a movie?" Thus, The Rundown was born.
