"Summer Lovers"

Summer Lovers (1982) stars Peter Gallagher as a young man, probably just out of college, summering on a Greek island with his steady girlfriend, Daryl Hannah. He is sort of a pre-yuppie, and has always done what was expected of him. Although he loves Hannah, he has a vague feeling that there might be more to life. Hannah is quiet, with a self-image problem, and is very modest, but she too wants more from their relationship. She is reading books about how to have a more exciting sex life, and hopes the vacation will kindle magic between them. The first day there, Gallagher meets Valerie Quenessen, a French born archeologist, uninhibited, but afraid of commitment and relationships. She has come to Greece to "simplify her life."

Gallagher follows her to the beach, where they end up having sex. After, he is surprised at himself, and confused about his feelings. He confesses to Hannah, who is jealous and threatened, and tells him to go get it out of his system. Hannah goes into town, and almost gets even with a local, but changes her mind. The fact that IMDB calls this Threesome will give you an idea how it ends up. On one level, it is a Hollywood formula love story -- couple meets girl, couple loses girl, couple finds girl, but, for me, all three characters seem very real, and react and grow in ways that have the ring of truth. That, and the fact that the film is full of nudity, explains why I like this film very much.

Valerie Quenessen, who committed suicide not long after making this film, is irresistible, and shows everything. Hannah shows breasts and buns, and countless unidentified women show various body parts including full frontal mostly in beach scenes. IMDB readers have this at 4.7 of 10. Personally, I don't understand why the low score. Yes, the themes are frankly sexual, and there is a lot of nudity, but it is a frank yet entertaining look at relationships, all set in a beautiful location. I suspect that people who watch this new DVD release will raise the score at IMDB. Unfortunately, it is a bare bones DVD, and is presented in 4/3 aspect ration, however, the transfer is outstanding. One of my favorite movies, but, based on the score, clearly not everyone feels that way. I suppose the proper score is C+.

    "The Good Girl"

    The Good Girl (2002) is finally here on DVD.Aniston does show a nipple in a very dark sex scene. While I was watching the film, one word kept coming to mind -- pathetic. The characters were all pathetic, the town was pathetic, and most of the events were pathetic. I knew, of course, that is was a well reviewed and popular film, which reminded me of the last hugely popular film that I just didn't get, American Beauty. See Scoop's review in the Movie Pages for a more typical response to the film. I will agree that Aniston played her character well, but it was a character I just didn't like. The proper score is C+, well made, but not for everyone, especially me.

    The Woman in Red. I don't think I miss very much about the 80's, but the decade surely had one thing going for it. You have to love a time when a film could get a PG-13 rating with full frontal nudity from Kelly LeBrock.

    This movie stinks, but ... well, I must beg forgiveness from all the other gorgeous women who have ever graced these pages, but Kelly LeBrock was the single most beautiful woman who has ever lived in the age of photography.

    What the hell was she thinking with that whole Steven Seagal thing?

    The point here is this. If a film has full frontal nudity from Kelly LeBrock, how much more does it need to be worth watching? Riddle me that, Batman.

    • Kelly LeBrock (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    Other crap:


    • Charlie's French Cinema Nudity site is updated


    • from Spaz: "My suspicions were  correct. Kaye Penaflore is the Filipino virtual reality  girl on the left in Jason X. She is a  reporter/producer for a Canadian Filipino show Flip! at . She even mentions the movie on her bio
    • "I  rented an episode from the TV series Adventures of Young Indiana Jones from Hollywood.  They have about 20 of them.  This one featured a beautiful spy who's cover was a belly dancer (desert war setting).  After watching part of it, I looked it up on the IMDB, and was surprised to see she was played a young and lovely Catherine Zeta-Jones.  I didn't see anything close to nudity - in fact she spent the first half with even her  FACE covered.  But she had a nice belly dance scene - nice belly too - in costume you might want to look at sometime.  If I see anything else I'll let you know. It surprised me because I've seen clips or heard about her other movies, but never this one (TV anyway, I guess, on tape now)"
    • "I saw in a store, a new version of Starship Troopers on DVD - Director's Cut or similar.  That's one I've wanted, since it had nice nudity. Wonder if there's any deleted shots of the shower scene?"
    • From the imager once known as the Rawhide Kid:  Scoop- "I have come up with a new name for my scans. Ain't about to go by the name of a (now) gay cowboy!  From now on, my stuff will come under the name of Gentleman George. For now I have lightened up some shots from the big collage you ran of Kelly Hu a few days back. Is she sans britches in these?  The one of her climbing on top of the Rock sure looks like pubes there!Hu #1 Then she is standing by a camel and again, it looks like pubes showing: Hu #2. And finally, when Rock is carrying her, I'm not sure on this one, but that sure looks like the prize there: Hu #3 It looks like maybe she had on a pair of panties that kind of got twisted out of the way..... Whattya think? "




    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick Locke, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    'Caps and comments by Hankster:

    Well gang, today you have to let me indulge in somewhat of a private fantasy. Every once in a while a girl comes along who just turns you on even if she is not naked. For me one of those women is Stepfanie Kramer of the old cop show "Hunter". I have had this DVD laying around for quite a while and finally figured what the heck cap it even tho there is no nudity. So here she is one of my all time favorite babes. Look into those eyes and tell me she doesn't just radiate sex appeal. Well I've rambled enough, just sit back and take a look at one sexy woman. Oh, almost forgot the movie is "Twin Sisters" and of course she plays both sisters.

    A tribute to Herb Ritts
    As we mentioned last week, the legendary celebrity photographer passed away at age 50. Througout his career, Ritts had unprecedented access to some of the most famous names in the world, and with a little help from Czechmate, here is a great collection of some of his work.
    • Michaela, see-thru nipple sighting.

    • Cordula, close up face.

    • Milla Jovovich, very young, and non-nude.

    • Neith, breasts and bush.

    • Cindy Crawford, excellent see-thru breast exposure.

    • Rachel, almost full frontal.

    • Lara, beautiful full frontal pose.

    • Stephanie Seymour, a perfect topless pose

    • Christy Turlington, gorgeous headshots and see-thru nudity in #3. (1, 2, 3)

    • Naomi Campbell, topless in all except #2. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    • The rest of these celebrate the female form. Most of these have nudity, and those that don't are just really cool photographs. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)

    Brigitte Bako
    Juliette Lewis

    Dann put together these excellent collages from the 1995 movie "Strange Days". Bako and Lewis are topless, and there are also some very nice, but unidentified robo-hooters.

    Kathryn Erbe
    (1, 2)

    Brief breast exposure in #1, rear nudity in #2. Vidcaps by bfd from the Kevin Bacon movie "Stir of Echoes" (1999).

    Sandra Wimark
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    I think it's time to move to Sweden...

    Thanks to The Honte for the scans and comments:

    Today's headline story in Sweden - Sandra Wimark, a popular kiddie show TV host, has been found nude on porn sites!

    Before Sandra Wimark started her career in Swedish television, she used to be a model. She once posed topless for a Spanish men's magazine and now that she has become a popular star, the pictures have surfaced on the web.

    Sandra is of course "shocked" that these pictures can be found on the Internet, as they weren't indended to be published there.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Scenes From A Mall - A group of marketing and ad industry judges from the U.S., U.K. and Australia have awarded the first "Product Placement Awards" for the movies, TV shows, video games and even books that crammed in the most ads. While "Die Another Day" was mocked as "Buy Another Day" for all the products displayed, it only came in second. #1 was "Minority Report," which featured a special Lexus plus products by Nokia, Reebok, Burger King, American Express, The Gap and more.

  • Even the plot was full of Gaps.
  • Spielberg wanted to show that the future won't be all that different.
  • There were more products in "Die Another Day," but when Halle Berry was onscreen in a bikini, nobody noticed them.
