"Death Wish" (1974)

Death Wish (1974) stars Charles Bronson as Paul Kersey, New York architect and bleeding heart liberal. When his wife is murdered and his daughter raped by thugs in his own apartment, he takes justice into his own hands. The police have a dilemma, however. With Kersey playing vigilante, the crime rate drops suddenly and dramatically. This film spawned 4 sequels, none nearly as good as the first. Watch for Jeff Goldblum in his film debut as one of the perpetrators. Kathleen Tolan of Ryan's Hope fame provided the exposure during an especially violent and graphic rape scene. In my opinion, the rape had to be portrayed this way to gain audience sympathy for Kersey's actions. Music was by Herbie Hancock.

Maltin awards three stars, which seems to be the consensus among critics. IMDB readers have it at 6.1, which is a little low in my opinion. This is decidedly not a good date film. In many ways, it is like a classic Western -- real bad bad guys, and real good good guys, and most people root for the good guy in this film.

    "Bandits" (1997)

    Bandits (1997) is essentially 109 minutes of German rock video with subtitles. Four female prisoners form a band called the Bandits, escape, then become a hit while eluding police. I am not a rock fan and I never watch MTV, so you are probably assuming I hated this film. Actually, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful scenery, music that was kind of a cross between rock and Jazz/Blues, and attractive women were part of the appeal. The plot, although very simple, managed some tension, and the personality of the band members made the high energy rock video approach very appropriate. Jasmin Tabatabai has a steamy sex scene rolling in the mud in the rain with a hostage near the end of the film. Note that she wrote many of the songs, and the cast actually sings in the soundtrack.

    Think of it as Thelma and Louise meet MTV. Though definitely a film about VERY strong women, the feminist message does not detract from the enjoyment. Apollo gives it 82, with Apollo readers even higher at 8.9. IMDB readers say 7.9. The film has a huge international following, and an Official Web site. Bandits is definitely worth the watch.

    I did Friday Foster, a Pamploitation film from 1975. They finally figured out that if they put Pam in nice clothes and stylish hairstyles, and then removed those clothes once in a while, they could make a passable entertainment with a minimum of effort. Features about every black actor of the time, from Godfrey Cambridge to Scatman Crothers to pre-Apollo Carl Weathers, and everyone in between. Even Eartha Kitt, doing her exact same purring from Batman!

    Graphic Response did The King of Marvin Gardens. To see my collages, check out the May 13, 2000 edition. they are some of the best I've ever done. (No thanks to me, really. It just happened to be an exquisitely filmed movie)

    Golden Globe OTHER FACTS:

    • The Oscars and Globes agree on Best Picture about 60% of the time.
    • HOWEVER - every Golden Globe Best Drama has been nominated for an Oscar in the past 30 years, even Bugsy and The Turning Point, which were probably the worst choices the Globes ever made. Gladiator, therefore, looks like a shoo-in for an Oscar nod.
    • Of the 12 times they have disagreed since 1972, the Oscars have made a better choice 4 times, the Globes only once, the other seven debatable.
    • If those 12 instances, there were three cases where they were both obviously wrong. They both missed Star Wars, Raiders, and Henry V. (Of course, they were both wrong some years when they agreed as well.)
    • among the top 2000 titles, the highest-ranking at IMDb are now (in order) Crouching Tiger, Requiem for a Dream, Traffic, Almost Famous, Gladiator, Dancer in the Dark, Billy Elliott.

    I am still assuming that Crouching Tiger will get best foreign-language film, so the four sure nominees seem likely to be: Traffic, Almost Famous, Gladiator, Billy Elliott. I don't know about the fifth. The most deserving would probably be Chicken Run, but I just don't know if the academy will go that way. There are some good choices: High Fidelity, Wonder Boys, Cast Away, O Brother, and Erin Brockovich, to name a few. The historical trend would favor Cast Away, but maybe the academy will surprise us.

    Globes vs Oscars in the Godfather Era

    Year of the films Globes (Drama) Oscars, if different comments
    1972 Godfather    
    1973 The Exorcist The Sting Both memorable, lasting pictures. I call it a draw.
    1974 Chinatown Godfather, Part 2 Both brilliant, lasting pictures, arguably two of the best ever. I call it a draw.
    1975 Cuckoo's Nest    
    1976 Network Rocky Network probably the better picture, but Rocky the more lasting and memorable cultural artifact. I call it a draw.
    1977 The Turning Point Annie Hall Both wrong. I love Woody, but it's now obvious that Star Wars was the picture of the year. Annie Hall was a good choice, however, while The Turning Point is a forgotten snoozefest, so score one for the Oscars. The Globes didn't even pick Annie Hall as best comedy (Goodbye Girl)!
    1978 Coming Home The Deer Hunter score one for the Oscars!
    1979 Kramer vs Kramer    
    1980 Ordinary People    
    1981 On Golden Pond Chariots of Fire Both madly deluded choices. Neither is any good at all. Raiders of the Lost Ark was obviously best picture, by such a wide margin that there can be no debate.
    1982 E.T. Ghandi About even. Really a matter of what type of movie you like. One is 7.7 at IMDb, the other 7.8.
    1983 Terms of Endearment    
    1984 Amadeus    
    1985 Out of Africa    
    1986 Platoon    
    1987 The Last Emperor    
    1988 Rain Man    
    1989 Born on the Fourth of July Driving Miss Daisy Neither film especially good. No clear cut winner that year. The best picture was probably Branagh's Henry V, which wasn't even nominated by the Oscars, or Glory.
    1990 Dances With Wolves    
    1991 Bugsy Silence of the Lambs Score another one for the Oscars. Bugsy????
    1992 Scent of a Woman Unforgiven Close call. I rate it a draw.
    1993 Schindler's List    
    1994 Forrest Gump   Both wrong, of course. Gump is a good film, but in the view of history, the best picture was either Shawshank or Pulp Fiction, depending on your taste. Both are in the all-time top 20 at IMDb.
    1995 Sense and Sensibility Braveheart Oscar's choice the better of the two. The Globes love Ang Lee.
    1996 The English Patient   ROFL.
    1997 Titanic    
    1998 Saving Private Ryan Shakespeare in Love The one and only time The Globes proved "right" in a dispute.
    1999 American Beauty    
    2000 Gladiator ??????

  • Lydie Denier Topless in the tub in these scenes from 1988's "Bulletproof", staring Gary Busey and Henry Silva! Now there's a cast!

  • Brainscan
    So what's my streak in finding something to post? At least from the beginning of the year, yes? There is treasure everywhere you look, and to prove it I am sending in an Ursula Andress scan. A new Ursula Andress scan. Turned up in a mid-60's pinup mag. Not the best photography or paper, but it's Ursula in her damn prime, and son it just don't get any better than that.

    Then there is Blackshine. Thought of offering him a bribe, say 100 Hershey bars in unmarked wrappers, to give Kate Moss a rest. But I like Kate and really like the scans. Onliest problem? A couple dozen Kates threatens to lower the booby average under the dreaded Mendoza Line. I have the cure. Four new ones of the most impressive chest I have seen: Roberta Pedon. (1, 2, 3, 4) Now we're back up to a Hall of Fame average.

    Lastly, there is the movie Meatballs 4. They made four Aliens movies and the fourth one sucked. They made four Star Wars and the fourth one sucked. But when they made four Meatballs movies they got it right with the last one. I know Meatballs, the original has Bill Murray and the best young camper humor ever filmed. Two and Three? Never saw em. Don't know anyone who did. With Meatballs 4 they hit the perfect formula: Kristi Ducati (1, 2), two shower scenes (one with Kristi Ducati), a strip charades scene (with Kristi Ducati), two naked former bunnymag mates (one of them the delicious Christy Thom), perennial nekkid person Lauren Hays and a little surprise with a topless Paige French. The Kristi and Paige scenes require no further explanation, but a few of collages do.

    The Lauren Hays scene ain't much, as she and two other babes (including Kristi Ducati) strip down to their BVD's. Lauren gets outta hers. Fine, this is the first part of what should be a seamless sequence.

    Next we see Kristi for sure (blue towel) and four others, including bunnymag person Neriah Davis in a nekkid scene only by the strictest definition. I figure the group should also include Lauren Hays and Miche Straub 'cuz they were undressing with Kristi in the scene before. Follow me so far? (By the way the names in the movie are a hoot. Lauren plays a character name Lauren, Miche a character named Miche and Neriah and a character named Neriah. Where do they come up with these names?).

    Next two collages are from the shower. Should be the same girls that walked TO the shower, right? Which means you should find Kristi, and you do (those are the shower pics of her). And you should find Lauren, Miche and Neriah. Now, I wouldn't know Miche from paper mache but I sorta, kinda know what Neriah and Lauren look like. And are they in the shower? I don't think so. (1, 2)

    We get four babes, two with seriously nice bods and one with a righteously cute bod, but I haven't a clue who any of em is. Spent way too much time trying to figure it out and so now I'm pissed.

    By now you're asking, "Where's Cristy Thom?" Patience, gentlemen.

    How ya doin everybody! I decided to go nuts with The Rocky Horror Picture Show tonight. One of my favorite movies.

    I capped a small collage of Nell Campbell (Little Nell) when I first started out at this, back when all I had was a 2 head VCR and a parallel port Snappy box. Now that the DVD is here, I decided to do give Rocky Horror another try. I have never seen a really good and complete set of caps from the movie, and I figured there must be more than myself who wants to see it. I have been waiting patiently for Tuna to do it for long enough lol.

    After 6 hours and 20 coffee's, here is what I came up with.


  • Nell "Little Nell" Campbell (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
  • Susan Sarandon (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
  • Patricia Quinn (1, 2, 3, 4)

  • Scanman
    Demi Moore
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Scene from "Striptease". No matter what people have said about this movie, you must give Demi full credit for authenticity! She definitely looks like a good chunk of the strippers I know, and no that's not the famous Scoopy sarcasm, I really know about 15 girls that look just like Demi from the neck down. I know the boobs are store bought...perhaps the whole package is?

    Martina Hingis More of Martina's "nude shower scene". Whyscan brought it to our attention a couple of days ago. As it turns out, it's a commercial for some kind of body wash or something.

    Kerry Katona
    (1, 2)

    Two excellent scans of the Atomic Kitten singer fully nude, but non-revealing from Sky magazine.
    and ...
    Elle and Kate No nudity this time, just Kate and Elle making out in the clearest 'caps yet. Thanks to DAI.

    Alicia Witt Cleavage only in this great collage by Dann with scenes from John Waters' "Cecil B. DeMented".

    Reneé O'Connor Mega cleavage from Xena's lesbo sidekick. Many readers may remember that I used to be a big fan of "Xena" until about 2 years ago when they started to write really stupid stories (like dying and coming back to life every other episode). But lately I've started watching it again. Not for the stories-they still stink- but rather because in this, their final season...they have even more hot, half-nekkid chicks showing more skin than ever before!

    Sabrina Marano
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    Topless poses with a semi-jungle theme.

    Laura Gemser
    (1, 2, 3)

    Excellent vidcaps by Pappa from 1975's "Emmanuelle in Africa". #1 and #2 feature excellent full frontal nudity, #3 is a topless lesbian scene.

    Charmaine Sinclair
    (1, 2, 3)

    From UC99 more goodies from German TV. #1 features fantastic cleavage and excellent thong views. #2 and #3 reveal the goodies topside.

    Anne and Alicia Sorell
    (1, 2, 3)

    How did the old commercial go? Double your pleasure, double your fun? Amen to that! Here are twin babes topless in the shower from the straight to video, 'Cruel Intentions 2"

    Pascale Bussičres Getting it on and showing lots of skin (mostly upstairs) in scenes from "X Change"

    Lisa Bronwyn Moore Breast exposure in scenes from "Xchange".

    Amy Sloan One more from "Xchange".
