1984 (1984) -- when this George Orwell classic about a possible dark future was remade in 1984, it was clear that his prediction had not come true, even though we children of the 60s felt then like it well might. Watching this new DVD release, I couldn't help but think of Homeland Security, Patriot Acts one and two, Ashcroft, the state of the economy, and the threatened war with Iraq. I would say the film is more relevant today than when it was made in 1984. It stars John Hurt as the outer circle party member who is guilty of thought crime (he doesn't believe everything big brother tells him) and sex crime (he actually has sex with Suzanna Hamilton). Richard Burton, in his final film appearance, plays an inner circle member in charge of reprogramming Hurt.

Hamilton does extensive full frontal in at least three scenes, one of them outdoors, and all of them well lit. IMDB readers have it at 6.7 of 10. There are not enough reviews at Rotten Tomatoes for a rating, but the range is from 2 to 5 stars. I found the film much less terrifying than the book, and also the 1956 original. The pace was a little slow, and the characters, if anything, were somewhat understated. The set design and cinematography evoked exactly the correct somber mood without obscuring the scenes. This film is at least a C, possibly higher who see us very close at the moment to this dark Orwellian future.

    The Life of David Gale is the new Kevin Spacey movie about the death penalty. If you are interested, I wrote a lengthy and fairly funny review, but I spoil everything, so don't read it if you're planning to see it, because it has a double surprise ending.
    • Laura Linney(1, 2, 3, 4, 5). She did somewhat more nudity than this - there are somewhat better breast shots, maybe a quick peek southward - but I didn't have a good enough copy to work with. This is Linney, by the way, not a double, as she has admitted in interviews.

    Women in Love was a groundbreaking 1969 film, in terms of its acceptance of aggressive female sexuality, and the nudity level. By today's standards, the female nudity is tame, but this movie is still the Holy Grail of male cinema nudity. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • 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.

    'Caps and comments by Hankster:

    Today we take the time machine back to 1970 for a peek at Erna Schurer in a rather obscure flick "Blood Castle".

    The first 3 caps are just teasers although we do see a quick glimpse of a nipple. The final 5 caps are Erna naked on a torture rack as she becomes a "Babe in Bondage". The scene was very dark and while it was from DVD it was not good quality.

    On the way back to the present, we stopped off in 1984 for a return visit to "The Mask" and Cameron Diaz. The first 2 caps are just Cameron looking cute, but the last 3 she becomes a "Babe in Bondage", sadly with all her clothes on.

    Grope Opera - Pamela Anderson is also creating a distraction at the annual Vienna Opera Ball, a tony event where diplomats and politicians rub shoulders with high society and classical music stars. Billionaire playboy Dickie Lugner invited Pam to accompany him, and he's sent out a string of press releases that are threatening to turn the ball into a media circus. Organizers complain that Pam is "lowering the tone" of the ball.

  • Nobody can hear Pam say the word "ball" without snickering.
  • But she got bigger breast implants just for the occasion!
  • Hey, it's for VIP's! She STARRED on "VIP!"
  • She's not lowering the tone, but she's certainly lowering the necklines.

    How About April Fool's Day? - Jennifer Lopez told the BBC that contrary to tabloid reports, she'd never planned to marry Ben Affleck on Valentine's Day. But she said that when she does marry him, she will take his name.

  • She will become "J-Aff."
  • She'll take it, then she'll leave it.
  • She's saving Valentine's Day for one of her major weddings.

    How Suite It Is - J-Lo keeps denying that she behaves like a diva, but British papers report that she arrived in London with an entourage of 30 and booked 14 hotel suites at $13,500 a night. She made the staff move her mountain of luggage from room to room until she found a view she liked. Later, onlookers were stunned when the whole crowd spent 15 minutes clambering into six limos, which drove to another ritzy hotel just 100 yards away.

  • Just to see whether J-Lo liked it better.
  • She didn't realize it was that far, or she would've brought a bigger entourage.
  • She's still Jenny from the block, but don't ask her to WALK a block.
  • Wonder if Ben knows all 30 of them will be accompanying her on the honeymoon.
