Termination Man (1997):
The film is a real treasure, so I added some pictures and other info.
details at the Movie House.
The key point is this: Athena Massey in the buff.
Salma Hayek is very naked for very long in her new movie.
- "if you need another reason to see this film, Salma Hayek and
Colin Farrell are both naked like crazy in the movie. I'm not
talking body double shots with head cut out of the frame, or a
fleeting glimpse that is designed to break the pause button on your
DVD remote control. I'd say that there's a good 4-5 solid minutes of
eye popping Hayek nudity in this movie. Even some full frontal
UN to declare blasphemy a violation of human rights?

"Bootlegs flood foreign market" ... U.S. music, software, and
movie companies struggle
- Here is something I didn't know: "In Bolivia, vendors of pirated
media have formed unions, and they held a trade convention last July
to plan their defense against government crackdowns."
- Bolivian vendors get most of their illegal DVDs and music CDs
from Peru, often months before the titles are officially released.
Pirated copies of King Kong arrived in Bolivia two months before the
film debuted in 56 countries, including the United States, on Dec.
- When I worked in Peru, I was fascinated by the stores. Virtually
every product on every shelf looks just like a U.S. or European
brand, but few of them are. The piracy is not restricted to just a
few industries, but runs as deep as (for example) baby shampoo by "Johnsin
and Johnsin" - in a bottle absolutely indistinguishable from the
original except for that one letter.
- In Egypt, several shop keepers told me that they were selling
legal, authorized CD's, even though I could see that the artists'
names were misspelled!

said recalled a more innocent time for Americans. Streep leads an

Kline. It was written by Garrison Keillor, real-life host of the

The In Crowd (2000)
The In Crowd (2000) is a drama thriller. A girl, Lori Heuring, is paroled
from a mental institution to work for the summer at a posh country club.
Because she is attractive and bright, she catches the attention of the club
bitch, Susan Ward, who pretends to befriend her. The Cast is full of
attractive young women, but elected to go for a PG-13 rating. Given the plot
and cast, this was a mistake, but not the only one. The script pretty much
telegraphed the ending early in the film, and was obvious each time it
presented an important clue. What should have been either a murder mystery, or
a good old titty-fest, or both, became neither.
Heuring is seen in a nearly transparent bra. Ward shows breasts.
IMDb readers say 4.1. Made for $15M, it earned $5.3 in its US release.
Berardinelli awarded one star. This is a D. It is full of attractive young
performers, and shot clearly, but makes no good use of those ingredients.
King Kong Lives (1986)
What is better than King Kong? Why, King Kong with a girlfriend. In this
Dino de Laurentis laugher, a Georgia doctor (Linda Hamilton ), has been
keeping Kong alive, waiting for an artificial heart to be created. Now that
the heart is ready, he is too weak for surgery without a little donor blood.
Brian Kerwin to the rescue. He discovers a female Kong, and sells him to
Hamilton's university. The heart replacement is a modified success, as Kong
sniffs the female, and for some odd reason, wants to get near her.
Poor ape has been in a coma for ten years, and may never have been laid in
his life. He breaks out, rescues her as well, and the good old US Army is
tasked with making this species extinct. They failed to consider Kerwin and
Hamilton, who have the same reaction to each other as the two Kongs did, and
become a two person Greenpeace.
Linda Hamilton shows breasts in exactly three blurry frames.
IMDb readers say 2.9. People who read my reviews regularly will smell this coming,
but this film is laugh-out-loud bad, which I consider a good, not a bad thing.
They actually have the apes doing extended scenes with nothing but facial
expressions. My personal favorite moment comes when hunters decide to capture
Kong, and Kong picks one up, snaps him in half, and pops him into his mouth.
The genre is bad movie, and this is a C.
If you aren't into bad movies ... the score would be more like E as a
Pat's comments in yellow...
Sharon Stone, who came to fame by opening her legs in "Basic Instinct" and is
set to do more nudity in "Basic Instinct 2," told Esquire that she is horrified
by Hollywood actresses displaying their breasts. She says the current fashion
of low-cut dresses and distorting push-up bras expose "acres of boobies" and
make you look "like you have your bum on backwards." Stone said she'd rather
walk across the room naked because it's "much more honest."
* And they can fix every little flaw digitally now.
* And she can show off her bum in the rear, where it's supposed to be.
* She'd rather walk across the room naked than do ANYTHING else.
Indian movie director T. Rajeevnath was so impressed by Paris Hilton's
refusal to pose for Playboy, he has put her on his short list of actresses he's
considering to star in his upcoming biography of Mother Teresa
...The only thing they have in common is that Mother
posed for Playboy, either.
