Although our archives are comprehensive, there are some cases
where great nude scenes are just very hard to find. Case in point:
nudity from the telly in the UK. There's plenty of it, and it isn't
always available in any home media format, so we have to wait until
somebody tapes it. Sometimes the result can be very rewarding.
Juliet Stevenson is an actress who is virtually unknown in the
States, but whose face is familiar it the UK. She's kind of a cross
between Frances McDormand and Lili Taylor. She has done full-frontal
nudity in other productions, but nothing like the scene in this
film. It is a passionate sex scene followed by a graphic beaver shot
when she climbs out of bed. The actual show, Aimee, is a 1991
television production from Britannia, and it's rated an astronomical
8.1 at IMDb, though there is very little information about it.
Lestat, the Musical
- The author, Linda Woolverton, says, "It's a
metaphor for the human condition." Yes! I love those!

A mixed weekend for the wild cat population. Cougars
win, Jaguars and Bengals eliminated.
- The other two teams eliminated were the Bucs and
Giants. The Giants were pathetic: no points, 91 yards
passing (with three interceptions), 41 yards rushing,
one for seven on third down conversions ... AT HOME,
where they went 7-1 in the regular season!

Weekend Box Office Results, January 6-8, 2006
- Hostel kicked some serious butt, with a $20
- BloodRayne opened in 19th place!! (The Weekend
Warrior's prediction was based on the earlier
assumption that BloodRayne would hit 2000 theaters.)
- Grandma's Boy also bombed, opening in 13th, with
an "average per screen" comparable to BloodRayne, but
on twice as many screens.
- Narnia grabbed a decisive hold on second
- Third may go either to Kong or Dick and Jane,
depending on the accuracy of the estimates.
- Woody's new movie did quite well in arthouse
distribution - 300 screens. It pulled in about the
same average per screen as Hostel
- The year is off to a good start. The weekend was
up 9% over the comparable weekend last year.

"Bikini Summer 3"
Bikini Summer 3 (1997) was produced by Heather Elizabeth Parkhurst, and stars her tits. The set-up is as follows. A bikini contest is being held in Miami. Heather is the make-up girl, and best friends with two previous winners, Tonya Goodson and Tiffany Turner. She is engaged to a hunk, newly rich from video games. When he arrives to pick her up from work, he finds the flamingly gay producer of the contest laying on top of her in the sand, and rushes off jealous. It was an innocent mistake, but his lawyer talks him into hiring the worlds most inept private eye to tail her.
Meanwhile, Heather's friends take her dancing, where a French artist falls for her, and then the owner of the sponsor of the contest falls for her as well. Everything works out in the end.
We have breasts from Heather Elizabeth Parkhurst, Tonya Goodson, Tiffany Turner and Lisa Tineo. There is also very limited simulated sex from Parkhurst and Goodson.
IMDb readers say 3.2, which helps to explain why this was Parkhurst's last film. She seems to have moved on to the occasional TV role. The one comment at IMDb is on the money. The portrayal of the gay producer is not only very bad, but is so over the top many will feel insulted by it. The boyfriend can't act. The private eye is stupid. The sex is lame. Their is no frontal nudity from anyone. The genre is T&A flick, and it is a barely passable one. C-.
Just a light update today with 3 clips from one movie.
Un taxi mauve (1977; The Purple Taxi) is a somewhat forgotten movie, not available on DVD anywhere as far as I know. It's a French-Italian-Irish co-production filmed in Ireland with prestigious actors like Peter Ustinov, Edward Albert, Philippe Noiret, Charlotte Rampling and even Fred Astaire. It's currently rated 6.3/10at IMDb with only 98 votes and 3 reviews.
The nudity comes from 2 actresses:
- Charlotte Rampling who is topless while looking for matches - in the presence of two men who understandably don't seem displeased.
- Agostina Belli shows breasts and bush while reclining in the bath tub when Charlotte Rampling walks in for a not too friendly conversation. (1,
