"Wild Bill"

Wild Bill (1995) is a biopic of James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok which focuses on his declining years and his death. He was bothered by glaucoma, and was not as young and as fast as he had once been, but being a legend in his own time required that he play the role. He is dead in the opening scene, and the entire film is a flashback to the events that led up to his death, which, in turn, are full of flashbacks to introduce key episodes in his life. Costarring is Ellen Barkin as Calamity Jane, who would like to be much more than his good friend.

Barkin shows buns and the side of her breasts getting out of a bath tub. IMDb readers have this at 5.7 of 10, and critical response was lukewarm. I found the constant time switches distracting, and never felt the film built any momentum. It was a credible attempt at presenting the real man, not the legend, but they let the truth interfere with making a good story. This is a C-, good enough, but mainly for genre fans and old west history buffs.

    • 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 Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.


    Words, pictures, and vids from ICMS


    "Non commettere atti impuri"  (1971) - continued

    As promised I'm sending in the second batch of clips from "Non commettere atti impuri" in which Simonetta Stefanelli shows breasts and buns. She was of course Michael Corleone's Sicilian bride in the godfather. It's not the first time that I unveiled the cute Simonetta, so I sure hope the family won't come after me for exposing her once again.


    Scoop's notes:

    1. I made the .wmv versions of each of the ICMS videos. (He makes the .avis, of course.) The latest codecs for these: Windows Video V9, Windows Audio 9. The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in the Windows Media Player. The advantages of these are (1) that they are compatible with any up-to-date windows OS, and (2) the file sizes are economical. The downside is that the quality is inferior to the originals.

    2. There is no point number two.

    3. If you have trouble with the .avi videos on this site, there is a tool designed to determine which codec is needed for any video.

    4. Because of a unique combination of circumstances with the Windows media player and some substantial bandwidth theft, we have to do all of our movie files in zip format. Left click on the files as you normally would to view a picture. When you get a choice, click on "save", and put it on your hard drive in the directory of your choice. UnZIP and play from there. I know this is not especially convenient, but it allows us to carry film clips. I can protect .zip files from hot-linking in the same way I can protect still images. For some reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not play in the Windows media player, and I can't get a satisfactory work-around. Perhaps I will find a better solution, but for now this new policy allows you to continue getting the movie clips you want to see, which is much preferable to my abandoning the clips altogether.

    The Best Nude Film Debuts of the 80s

    The Best Nude Film Debuts of the 90s

    'Caps and comments by Spaz:

    "Valentine" (2001)
    Despite its title this is a slasher with alot more blood than skin. The only nudity was by some video models at an art exhibit.

    "The Guilty" (2000)
    Thriller about a comely secretary (Gabrielle Anwar) who gets drugged and date raped by a lawyer. The only nudity was by Gabrielle's body double.

    "Samurai Cowboy" (1993)
    Catherine Mary Stewart has a nice skinnidipping scene.

    "Detroit Rock City" (1999)
    Kristin Booth plays a bra-less cashier in this stoner comedy. Catch her later in season 2 of Show Me Yours.

    'Caps and comments by Oz:

    "Losing Control"
    Starting with some soft core, we have Losing Control. There was probably a story line but that's not why you watch it. A more explicit version of the movie is no doubt available but the best we see is lots of breasts by Kira Reed, Jennifer Ludlow and an unknown.

    "There was a Crooked Man"
    There are topless shots of Pamela Hensley and Jeanne Cooper with lots of cleavage by Barbara Rhoades and some unknowns.

    An excellent upskirt by Skylar Shaye, with nice caps of Lauren Tom and Traci Lords, who makes a one minute cameo.

    "Streets of Fire"
    A brief view of a topless dancer in Streets of Fire.

    "The Young Americans"
    A couple of nice caps of Thandie Newton in The Young Americans.

    Nicole Arnold is a topless dancer in Takedown and Angela Featherstone is down to her underwear.

    Geena Davis appears to be topless in Angie but it could be a prosthetic.

    Paris Hilton
    (1, 2)

    Paris doing a lot of posing and showing pokies and some leg views (#2) while hosting "Saturday Night Live". I'm still not really sure why she's a celebrity let alone hosting SNL, but sadly I must admit that she did a satisfactory job. She was at least on par with the average hosting performance for this season. Of course that's not really saying much. Especially since saying the phrase "phone it in" would actually require more effort than most of the hosts have delivered lately.
