The Last Woman (1976)
I have not seen this film. You can get additional information about
it from the ICMS section below. It's certainly one of a kind. Not much
in the world of film surprises me, but I was surprised at my first
look at the uncensored version of this film (ICMS, clip 10), in which
Depardieu is running around sportin' wood on camera.
Well, we can
all do without that, but Ornella Muti did her share of nudity as
well. These are caps made from the ICMS film clips.

MovieJuice! takes a jaundiced look at Hostel
- "wherever you find genocide and human misery, a
throng of American college students looking to get laid

- "The women in Hostel come in three flavors. Variety

clothes off. Variety C: Revels in the absence of clothes
and wouldn't think of interrupting her busy day to
bother with them."
- "This movie is said to be inspired by a true story,
specifically the story of how writer/director Eli Roth
needs to eat and how Lions Gate needs to solidify its
reputation as the premier provider of genre films that
are best enjoyed after a big-ass blunt."
Notes on the word "faire" (the link is irrelevant)
- As you may know, there was no standardized English
spelling during the English Renaissance.
- The OED lists four instances in the 15th through
17th centuries of "fair" being used as a noun meaning "a
gathering for trade and entertainment."
- The four citations used four different spellings:
faire, fayre, faier, fare. The only use of "faire" was
in a biblical translation.
- The three pre-Renaissance citations are spelled:
feyre, feire, and faire
- Dr Johnson published his dictionary in 1755. All of
the post-Johnson references are spelled "fair."
- In other words, "faire" is not "the way it was
spelled then." There was no "way it was spelled then,"
and virtually every conceivable spelling variation was
used at one time or another during and before the
English Renaissance. It is, rather, a contrived
marketing term used to stamp a place or event with a
cachet of quaint old-world charm, ala "ye olde shoppe."

Bloodrayne, as reviewed by that master of subtlety, The
- Bloodrayne sucks goat tits. It sucks shit and smelly
ass. It sucks the husks off corn, the foreskin off
dicks, the shit off the submissive in a Dirty Sanchez.
It sucks harder and more sloppily than a Bennigan's
waitress on her lunch break, but costs slightly less. It
is, however, better than Alone in the Dark (the
director's previous movie - ed.). That's not to say it's
good, it's just that it's like getting a staph infection
below the knee instead of the entire leg.
- For the actors, appearing in a Uwe Boll is a
declaration that they act for money and have costly
addictions that must be fed.
- Costumes have a vague sense of old timeyness, as
though the costume designer pillaged the rennaissance
faire at the "special" school. The girls wear
midriff-baring bustiers and hotpants similar to those
Randy "Macho Man" Savage wore in the 80s and also, I
guess, waifs of ancient time liked on a cold wintery
- There are more fights in Bloodrayne than at nickel
beer night in Comiskey Park.
- We get to see Lokken's tits a bunch, and they are
very nice. In the middle of the movie there is some sort
of vampire orgy with fake blood and lots of writhing.
Watch in the background of this scene to see actors who
are clearly as uncomfortable with this horrid attempt at
eroticism as I was. Meatloaf rubs blood on one lady's
nipple, and others lounge around half-naked dripping

American Pie 4: Band Camp (2005)
Band Camp (2005) is a straight-to-video teen comedy adapted to the
American Pie franchise. It obviously began life as a summer camp film,
with the usual script pitting rich kids vs poor kids in a milieu of
sexy counselors. Then it occurred to them to make it band camp, use
Stifler's little brother as one of the "poor kids," and they even got
Eugene Levy into the cast as the camp disciplinarian, and a cameo from
the Sherminator as the school's guidance counselor.
Plot element one. The Stifler character pulls of a joke on the
band, and is sentenced to band camp as punishment. He hits on the idea
of filming the "bandies" getting naked and crazy, and selling the
Plot element two. There is a contest between the rich and poor
kids. The winner of the camp competition gets a scholarship to a music
academy. (One of the qualifying events is soap suds volleyball, an
event closely correlated to musical genius.) From there, the film
dissolves into a romantic comedy and a pecker contest between Stifler
and the head snob of the rich school.
Band Camp was the American Pie episode I have been waiting for, but
it should have been a prequel, should have included the original cast,
and should have been much sexier. The flute line from the original
made a far bigger impression on me than the much touted pie scene. The
pie scene took too long to set up, robbing some of the humor, but the
"One time at band camp, I shoved my flute in my pussy" line came out
of nowhere. This film should have been bandies getting off. Further,
they should have researched what a band camp is really like, rather
than do a quickie paint job on a summer camp drawing. I can't even
imagine soap suds volleyball and paddle boat racing at a normal summer
camp, much less a band camp. Other than the reliable blow to the
testicles, and an amorous adventure with an oboe, the humor is built
on bodily secretions and excretions.
The did manage a few boobs, including Ginger Lynn Allen as the camp
nurse, Angela Little, Rachel Veltri (who also has brief frontal), and
IMDb readers have this at 4.9. Honestly, it is watchable once, and
produced a few laughs for me, but does not deserve to have the
American Pie pedigree. This is a C-, as a marginally acceptable teen

Ornella Muti is often completely naked in these ten clips, but unfortunately
so is Depardieu. Clips 1 to 9 come from Italian TV which aired a somewhat
censored version. Clip 10 comes from a less censored or uncensored version on
French TV and shows more of Ornella and every inch of Gérard. Yes, men, as
you'll see, every inch.
Some great looking gals today. Angela Lindvall
is a fashion model and Victoria Beckham used to
sing, or so I have heard. Nell McAndrew is famous
for getting and staying nekkid and apparently for nothing else. Same sorta
deal with Orlaith McAllister, only she first got
her kit off while on Big Brother 5, UK version. Last up is
Evangelina Paterno who I gather is a television
showgirl somewhere in the world.
Scoop's note: I have seen Luck Clarkson and Nell McAndrew naked more times
than I have seen the women I have had sex with, yet I still have no idea who
they are or why they are famous, except for an extreme level of willingness to
get naked and body parts which look excellent when said nakedness occurs.
Dann reports on Her Name is Carla
Strange and different, but also
plodding, this psychological thriller from 2005 offers a constantly
changing plot where things are never quite what they seem.
Married couple Carla and Bill are staying at their waterfront home
located in a beautiful seaside resort town. In what appears to be an
accidental meeting, Carla runs into Molly and Jack, who claim to be a
married couple in town for the day to attend a meeting. When the meeting
is postponed and Molly in unable to find a room for the night, Carla
invites the pair to stay with them overnight.
As the four interact, things become strained as sexual tension flares
between Carla and Jack, and Molly and Bill. Even stranger, Bill finds he
keeps getting different answers from the pair about the same questions.
Also mysterious is a daughter the couple keep mentioning, named Carla.
Eventually, Bill asks the pair to leave. They agree, but keep finding
excuses not to. As the movie progresses, it eventually becomes obvious
that neither Molly nor Jack are what they seem, and they have no intention
This movie takes a long time getting to the point. Depending on your
tastes, that is either a good thing or a bad thing. Once it does, the
ending is twisty and interesting. I confess to being bored through most of
the film, but the ending saved it somewhat. I'd say if you like intricate
and detailed thrillers with slow pacing, you might enjoy it. If not,
you'll definitely be mostly bored.
Italian, French and German stuff from me this time.
She Beast (a.k.a. La Sorella di Satana),1966, is an old-looking horror film,
more funny than scary for a viewer today. The plot involves Dracula, Van Helsing,
an ancient Witch reincarnated, and also Communists(!). It was drected by Michael
Reeves, of "Witchfinder General." The quality of the picture is abysmal. However
Barbara Steele is in there, recommendation enough for me. Her face conveys
untold morbid desires (so they say...and I agree) and has been used to that
effect in various films. Here she's very close to but not actually nude.
"2 or 3 things I know about her" (2 ou 3 choses que je sais d'elle), 1967, is
a French film from Godard, so don't expect traditional Hollywood storytelling. I
found it very engaging, but there are others who can't stand Godard and find
that kind of filmmaking pretentious. In the film, people talk a lot, about
prostitution, sex relations, advertisements. The Vietnam war is very prominent
too. Having recently watched De Palma's "Greetings", it's easy to see why that
film has been called "Godardian". Marina Vlady is good-looking ...
... and, according to imdb, the girl in the bath is Helena Bielicic ...
... plus an unknown.
