"Thelma & Louise"

Thelma & Louise (1991) -- For those who are planning to rush out and buy the Special Edition of Thelma & Louise being released this week in hopes of seeing the deleted sex scene between Bradd Pitt and Geena Davis, save your money. It is not on the DVD. A recent blurb at IMDB quotes Bradd Pitt from a lengthy making of retrospective, and implies that this very hot and explicit scene is on the new release. The 30 minutes of deleted scenes are actually 30 minutes of footage from the film, with some very short cuts restored. The info there refers you to the retrospective on the other side of the DVD for some "tame" examples of the deleted scene. The additional material included in the interview shows Geena's upper thighs, and maybe the bottom of her cheeks. So, the explicit scene was shot, but it was clear to everyone that it was too hot for the release. I suspect that Pitt and Davis had something to do with not including it on what is otherwise a very good special edition DVD package, with side two of the DVD being nothing but Special Features, including trailers, promos, story boards and a making of that includes interviews with all of the main cast and crew.

IMDB has it at 7.3 of 10. Oscar for best writing, and nominations for Best Actress to both Davis and Sarandon, Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Editing. Rotten Tomatoes has 83% positive, with 100% from the top critics. It is a cult favorite with feminists for the two strong women who dare to go after their dreams, and received some harsh and unfair criticism for being a violent male bashing film. In point of fact, there are three deaths in the film, and only one of them is a man. They also blew up a truck. I adore this film. It does not hurt that Davis and Sarandon are personal favorites. This was the first female buddy road movie, and features an outstanding cast, an engaging story, and is visually beautiful. B.

    "Igby Goes Down"

    Igby Goes Down (2002) is a black comedy coming of ager in the Holden Caulfield Catcher in the Rye tradition. Kieran Culkin is the privileged offspring of a mega-bitch mother (Susan Sarandon) and a father (Bill Pulman) who has gone through meltdown and is a vegetable at a home for the terminally bewildered. His older brother (Ryan Phillippe) is the perfect preppy and in his freshman year at Columbia. Igby specializes in getting thrown out of prep schools. His step father (Jeff Goldblum) tries to take him under his wing, and Igby ends up living in one of his lofts, and having sex with Goldblum's girlfriend, Amanda Peet. The film starts with Culkin and Phillippe apparently killing their mother, and then does the old flashback routine.

    Peet shows breasts in a lengthy scene where she is shaving her pits. IMDB readers have this at 7.4 of 10. Ebert awarded 3 1/2 stars, and Berardinelli 3. Critical acceptance was 75% positive, with 80% from the top critics, according to Rotten Tomatoes. It did not fair well at the box office, bringing in $4.68M against a budget of $9. Those who liked it praised great writing, clever dialogue, and good performances. I guess I am just not impressed by neurosis peculiar to the rich, because I was very glad to see it end. C.

    • 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.

    We left the time machine parked in 1969 for more caps of the sexploitation western "The Ramrodder".

    Today we visit the lead actress Kathy Williams who plays an Indian maiden, we see her strip in front of another woman and then don war paint for a little tribal dance.

    After a couple of tame non-nude caps Kathy and lead actor Jim Gentry get it on making love in the water.

    More to come from this classic nudie including "Babe in Bondage" scenes and the classic whipping scene.

    "IDOL" RUMORS: GAY FILM PAST, MARRYING JUSTIN?
    That One Special Kiss - While everyone's watching the new "American Idol," original idol Kelly Clarkson is still making news. It was revealed that she once appeared in a gay film called "Issues 101" that played at gay film festivals. She had a tiny role as a co-ed. The distributor, www.outofthecloset.tv, says her performance in a gay-themed film proves she deserves the title of both idol and diva.

  • She may not be the next Mariah Carey, but she might be the next Bette Midler.
  • Simon replied, "So THAT'S where I'd seen her before!"


    Say It Ain't So, Kelly! - The Star tabloid claims that Kelly and runner-up Justin Guarini spent so much time together touring and shooting a movie, they've fallen in love. The Fox Network producers are said to be gleeful at the publicity from a possible marriage, and are reportedly talking about paying for a $1 million wedding if Kelly and Justin agree to let it be filmed for a two-hour TV special.

  • This could actually stretch Justin's 15 minutes of fame into two hours!
  • I'd only watch if they'd let the audience call in and vote on whether or not Kelly should say "I do."
  • Then Randy, Paula and Simon get to judge the wedding night, and Simon will call it "the worst sex he's EVER seen."
  • If they got married, they'd probably give birth to a whole litter of "Star Search" contestants.


    MICHAEL JACKSON SAYS HE'S HAD NO SURGERY
    Don't Take Him At Face Value - In an interview with Britain's ITV1, Michael Jackson claims he wants to live forever and that he has never had plastic surgery.

  • And I can't imagine which of those two things is less likely.
  • He's never had plastic surgery: it's just that every few months, he likes to press his face against a grinding wheel.
  • He's only going to live until his son is big enough to dangle HIM over a hotel balcony railing.
