Basic Instinct 2:
The IMDb trivia
page for this film is fascinating. It's had more ups and downs
than Jenna Jameson's head. At any rate, there is some kind of
promo reel floating around, and it's quite a "hard R," so here it is

Final Destination 3 (2006):
This film was put together by James Wong and Glen Morgan, the duo
who made the original Final Destination such an appealing genre pic.
It opens in theaters this Friday. It seems that there is
nudity, but the nudity has been blurred in these vidcaps from some
sample footage, especially in the footage with Chelan Simmons. I'm
gonna guess that the sample tape was specially made for general
distribution, and the blurring is NOT going to be there when you hit
your favorite metroplex. I hope not, anyway!

Forbidden Games (1995) is a soft-core thriller that takes itself way too seriously, and is rather stingy on nudity and simulated sex. It does have a kick-ass ending. In fact, I can imagine the writers sitting around at a party and saying, "Wouldn't it be great if a thriller ended ...," and someone else said, "yes, and the hero ..." Then, they proceeded to invent a plot to match that ending. Unfortunately, if I say anything about the ending, I will spoil nearly the only good thing about this film.
As the film opens, a man is in bed with a topless Becky Mullen when his estranged wife calls. Mullen freaks and leaves, and a woman knocks on the door, giving him an envelope with a huge check in it, and a time for an appointment. We find out that he is an ex justice department investigator who used ESP to solve crimes until he has a nervous breakdown from the stress of what he saw. Now in therapy and on disability, his wife has separated from him, as she wants financial security. The appointment turns out to be with a very rich daughter of a man recently deceased. Even though the grand jury found death by heart attack, she suspects her father was murdered, and wants our man to use his special abilities to find out what happened.
Of course, we know she is right about the murder, as we see him bound and blindfolded, and then killed with amyl nitrate before the opening credits.
The suspects include the owner of a modeling agency (Amy Weber), any of the models there, all of whom seem to have had sex with the deceased at one time or another, and the deceased's young widow, Gail Harris. Our hero gets romantically involved with the sweetest of the three, Harris, after his wife files for divorce.
Gail Harris gives the only 3 B performance in the film. Becky Mullen shows breasts. Ashley Rae and Amy Weber shows breasts and buns, as do many other women, credited as "models."
IMDb readers say 4.9. The plot was clumsily developed, causing me to figure out most of the ending in advance, they simulated sex was humdrum, and, despite a high nipple count, the nudity was somewhat disappointing. The ending salvages a C- for them.
We start the new week with Fun House regular Laura Antonelli, the drop-dead gorgeous all-natural 1970's actress with an exuberant volume in the Encyclopedia. The occasion is the Italian movie Il merlo maschio (1971; aka. Secret Fantasy). Il merlo maschio literally translate as The Male Blackbird, but according to my dictionary merlo also means both smart ass and sucker.
The story, for as much as there is one, deals with an average musician in an orchestra who is not really popular among his colleagues. When he finds out that they are more interested in his wife he starts taking nude pictures of her that accidentally fall into the hands of his band members. Now they do find him interesting and start to show some respect...That's about it.
Today we'll be viewing a first batch of 8 clips showing Laura mainly at the doctors' and in bed while her husband photographs her with a digital camera from 35 years ago that didn't require a computer, a printer and a USB cable. I think my dad still has a camera like that lying around somewhere gathering dust.
Where will it all end? Well, please tune in again tomorrow for the final 8 clips and you'll know, cause I don't think you'll find this movie on DVD anywhere.
'Caps and comments by Dann:
"The Path of Evil"
2004's Harvest of Fear told the story of a serial killer stalking the small coastal town of Devils Lake. During the killing spree, a local deputy and his wife were among the victims, before the so-called Harvest Killer is found and imprisoned. This 2005 sequel takes place 20 years later.
Deputy Jake Barker still struggles to cope with the death of his parents, and the recent estrangement of his girlfriend of three years has pushed him over the edge, and sent him on a drinking binge. He's been placed on leave for psychiatric evaluation, and as he tries to regain his job, bodies start popping up again, brutally killed by knife just like the victims 20 years ago.
Vowing to find the killer, an apparent copycat, but still suspended from active duty, Jake clashes with the sheriff and local medical examiner, who by coincidence is the new boyfriend of Jake's lost love. Meanwhile, the man who is serving time for the original killings is continuing to protest his innocence, and pointing to the new murders as proof.
Predictable, and poorly acted by many of the actors, but with a fairly twisty ending and great nipples on Wendy Watson, this slasher B-movie is just interesting enough to be worth watching; just don't expect too much.
