"Is There Sex After Marriage"
Is There Sex After Marriage (1974) is a soft core, listed at IMDb as a documentary. Lori Brown is a housewife and mother, who feels overworked and ignored by her husband, but refuses sex with him except in bed at night, Anything else would be improper. She is educated by her best friend, the legendary Candy Samples and a sex therapist she plays with. Meanwhile, hubby and his best friend enjoy prostitutes Sandy Demsey and Monica Walters. Brown realizes the error of her ways, and finds hubby a much more sensitive lover than she expected.
All four women show full frontal. The acting was dismal, but the sex was not bad, and it was full of beaver and pickle. This is a C.

Zhivago is my favorite proper noun. I've written a
little song about it.
My kind of noun

Zhivago is ...

cares for you
I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that Doctor
Zhivago must be the most overrated book ever written.
OK, I realize that it is impossible to appreciate a
work in translation, particularly a book full of poems. This is one
reason why English speakers have been never been able to appreciate
the genius of Pushkin, even though Russians consider him to be their
Shakespeare, a man with a genius for a turn of the phrase that can
make you weep in admiration of its sheer beauty when read aloud.
Obviously, that poetic eloquence doesn't work well in translation.
Since Boris Pasternak is obviously several
levels below Pushkin in the literary pecking order, his character's translated poems seem like they were
written by young girls with Monet prints on their bedroom walls.
Given the translation problem, I
basically overlooked the sappy poems, but
my problem with this novel is that the whole story seems to have
been written by one of those Monet girls. C'mon, somebody tell me the
truth. Was Boris Pasternak really a man, or is that name just one of
those manly pseudonyms that women were forced to use in order to get
published in earlier times, like Acton Bell, George Eliot, or George
Sand? This DVD has a biography of Boris Pasternak. Forget that. I
want to see the results of his gender testing, like they do in the
Here in the Movie House, we have a standard
measurement which we use to calculate whether something is a
chick-flick. We determine the estrogen level by subtracting the
average IMDB score awarded by male voters from its counterpart among
female voters. If the resulting estrogen count is 1.0 or more, we
have lift-off. The chico de tutti chici, Dirty Dancing, is in orbit
at 1.9 and may never be approached, but this version of Doctor
Zhivago is certainly beyond the launching pad, having reached well
into the stratosphere at 1.3. It has a higher estrogen level
than Steel Magnolias (1.1) and Beaches (1.2).
Think about that. It makes Steel Magnolias seem like
a Dirty Harry flick. Pasternak contributed his share to that
condition, and the music really
closed the deal. The musical score for this mini-series is so
completely syrupy it makes the musical treacle from the original
Doctor Zhivago (remember Lara's Theme?) seem as hard and edgy as
Depression-era delta blues.
Not only is the plot sappy, but it can be downright
illogical, false to history, and even hilarious. Vladimir Nabokov pointed out:
intelligent Russian would see at once that the book is
pro-Bolshevist and historically false, if only because it
ignores the Liberal Revolution of spring, 1917, while making
the saintly doctor accept with delirious joy the Bolshevist
coup d'etat seven months later -- all of which is in keeping with the
Leaving out politics, I regard the book as a
sorry thing, clumsy, trivial, and melodramatic, with stock
situations, voluptuous lawyers, unbelievable girls, and trite
Zhivago is filled with character intersections that
would embarrass Charles Dickens. For some fifteen years of his life,
no matter where Zhivago goes in Russia, from an elegant restaurant
in the capital, to a tiny isolated village, or to a corpse-strewn
battlefield, he accidentally runs into Lara for yet another tearful
Hey, I can understand that. Russia is a small
A point worth noting is that the great David Lean
once made a film of Doctor Zhivago. That is THE David Lean, the
certified genius who made Bridge Over the River Kwai and Lawrence of
Fucking Arabia, fer chrissakes. Even Lean could make nothing more
than a mawkish, middling romance of this story.
Here's another point worth considering, this one
aimed at you
ambitious young filmmakers. If David Lean could not make a
masterpiece of Doctor Zhivago, why would you want to try? For that
matter, why would you want to remake any David Lean movie, whether
great or merely good? Are you planning to fix something he screwed
Oh, well, it is too late for those considerations. A
director named Giocomo Campiatti has already decided to improve on
David Lean's version of Zhivago, and he certainly pumped up the
estrogen level. In fact, an estrogen score of 1.3 is right up there
with Bridget Jones, the Edge of Reason. Let's look up the author of
that Bridget Jones screenplay, shall we? Andrew Davies. Sounds
familiar. What else has he written? Let's see: a TV adaptation of
Pride and Prejudice. A TV adaptation of Vanity Fair. Both of those
have estrogen scores over 1.0. What else?
Oh, yeah. The mini-series version of Doctor Zhivago.
- Keira Knightley. (1,

grainy, too brief and too inexplicit. The problems are
compounded by the fact that Keira has no breasts at all, and

According to sources within the terror network, Mr. Guckert
distinguished himself at press conferences by lobbing softball
questions Mr. bin Laden’s way, such as, “Don’t you think it’s

and “Isn’t it ironic that they call us evildoers when they are

does deserve recognition for The Aviator. That probably was the

remarkable job of pulling together all the details of a
spectacular movie. Unfortunately, it looks like he may lose Best
Director, although his film may undeservedly win Best Picture (It
probably shouldn't even have been nominated. Hell, among 2004
films with 500 or more votes, it currently ranks no higher than a
tie for 35th at IMDb. Frankly, it is occupying a position which
should have gone to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.)

'Caps and comments by Jack Snow:
Here's another batch of caps from Euro TV:
|Let's start with some antiques from the 70s, particularly from the German western "Deadlock" featuring Mascha Rabben and Betty Segal (as "Corinna, the old frump") both going topless.
|Also from back in the 70's...here we see both actresses showing breasts in scenes from the TV-production "Der verliebte Teufel".
||Jumping into the 90s, we discover the busty Polish actress baring a breast in a sex-on-the-floor-scene in "Hotel Shanghai" (1996).
||Another love scene, another actress topless. Here is Schmidt in a scene from "Und morgen geht die Sonne wieder auf" (2000).
||Also very popular: shower scenes. Here is Scholz showing buns on an episode of "Hallo, Onkel Doc!"
||Another shower scene. This time we a couple of topless views in scenes from "Höllische Nachbarn".
||Some more recent stuff.....On the German TV series "Im Visier der Zielfahnder", Weisse briefly showed a single breast.
||Here we see the Dutch actress giving us a quick full frontal performance in scenes from the movie "Lek" (2000).
||The German movie "Identity Kills" featured a little too far-off nude scene of Brigitte Hobmeier, still her breasts are clearly visible.
||Scenes from the movie "Wellen"...Here we see some nice soaking-wet-see-thru nipple views in a fully clothed shower scene.
||Martinek couldn't prevent one nipple from escaping in a scene from "Der Mann von nebenan lebt!" (2005).
|Finally the mandatory update on "Verschollen".
On the episode "Liebeswahn", Antonia Reß had a nude scene, but her nipples wer covered with tape. If you didn't look close enough, you got the idea she has square nipples! On the same episode, we saw Katrin Brockmann down to bra and panties.
The episode "Folter" featured the best nudity so far; Katrin Brockmann and Antonia Reß went for some topless swimming. Very nice and clear breast views from Katrin, only a quick flash of one breast by Antonia.
On the very last episode, Nele Jonca showed some partial breast views in a love scene.
DeadLambs latest batch of HDTV 'caps featuring last week's prime time skin highlights, plus a few extra movie 'caps.
|Showing plenty of cleavage and doing a decent job hosting "Saturday Night Live".
|No nudity, but she still looks pretty darn good during the season premiere of "The L Word". You may recognize her from a recurring role during season 1 of "Alias". She was also one of Frank the Tank's wife's friends in "Old School".
|New on DVD...here is the supermodel looking absolutely gorgeous (and feeling up Jennifer Esposito in #3) in scenes from the complete stink-bomb, "Taxi" starring Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon.
|Wow! Here is some fantastic toplessness from Mia during the opening credits of Sunday night's season premiere of "The L Word".
|The paparazzi deliever some great topless and thong views of the Oscar winner doing a little mostly nude sunbathing.
|Zenguru 'caps of the model exposing a nipple on the runway.
|Topless in scenes from "Haggard: The Movie" (2003). Directed, starring and co-wrtiten by her real life boyfriend, skateboard dude Bam Margera.
|Señor Skin takes a look at the Martin Scorsese movie "Gangs of New York" (2002). Diaz shows the briefest bit of nipple (possibly unintentional, but either way we win). The exotic and beautiful Chappuis is much more clearly topless.
Eliane Chappuis is an interesting actress...on her official website she gives you her Swiss bank account numbers in case you want to "Sponsor her talent".

PARIS AND NICOLE SPARK FUNERAL HOME COMPLAINTS
Making Ashes Of Themselves - Kohler Funeral Home in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey,
got complaints for letting Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie (while working as interns
for "The Simple Life") spill what appeared to be someone's ashes and clean
them up with a vacuum cleaner. Some locals called it tasteless, but the
owner said it was just a mixture of cat litter and cement, and Paris and
Nicole never touched any human bodies in any of the scenes.
Although Paris was willing.
When Paris applies suction to a stiff body part, she doesn't
use a vacuum cleaner.
In fact, all their urns are filled with cat litter and cement...You
don't want to know where the bodies go.

LABS BEDEVILED BY "CSI" EFFECT
I Want A Second Opinion! Call "House!" - At the annual meeting of the
American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, forensic
lab workers said they're being crushed by "the 'CSI' effect." The
popularity of "CSI" on TV has left people unsatisfied with medical and
crime reports, and demanding that everything be tested that doesn't have to
be. They said the backlog of DNA tests in US labs has reached 300,000, and
jurors now expect labs to be able to prove anything to a certainty.
They're upset to learn that, for instance, toxicology tests can take
months, while on TV, the results are back instantaneously.
They tell people they ran their DNA through the R-24 Thermo-nuclear
Spectrometer, when they really just put it in the mini-fridge for 20
Real CSI lab technicians are so overworked, they don't even have time to
get their hair highlighted.
At least, the huge backlog on DNA tests is good news for NBA players.
RUSSELL CROWE FEARS EXPOSURE
Shake Spear In Love - Russell Crowe told the UK's Sun newspaper that the
movie "Eucalyptus" was canceled because he refused to do a scene that
required him to expose himself to the young Queen Elizabeth. He said he
was told he could use a prosthetic organ and was given a range to choose
from, but he refused.
They were all WAY too small.
Well, he refused to do the movie, but he kept all the organs for swizzle
He was willing to moon her, but that's as far as he'd go.
