"Truth of Dare"

Truth of Dare (1991) is a documentary of Madonna's Blonde Ambition tour. The tour was notable because she wore underwear for many of her costumes, including the now famous cone bra, and also because of the legal problems she had in many cities over her masturbation performance in the Like a Virgin number. The DVD includes a lot of grainy black and white backstage stuff, and some color shots of actual concerts. It is more than a rock video of the concert songs, as it does give many insights into what Madonna is like, and shows what it takes to mount a major road tour.

We see her breasts twice in the film, but I have included many of the sexier costumes as well. IMDb readers have this at 5.5 of 10, and it earned $15M against a budget of $4.5M. Critical response was positive, including 3 1/2 stars from Ebert. If you are a Madonna fan, this is a good bet for purchase for two reasons. First, it is a pretty candid look at her, and second, it inhabits bargain bins and deep discount DVD stores. I will give this a C.

    Creator (1985), which IMDb calls The Big Picture, stars Peter O'Toole as a Nobel prize winning research head at a teaching hospital who is eccentric anyway, and has been dedicating his time and energy into cloning his dead wife in a home lab outfitted with equipment pilfered from the hospital. As the film opens, he is looking for a new research assistant, and suckers Vincent Spano into taking the job. O'Toole's nemesis is trying to get the dean to put him out to pasture and let him take over the research department. O'Toole is searching for a human egg for his next attempt at cloning his wife, and finds Mariel Hemingway, who describes herself as a 19 year old nymphomaniac, and decides she is going to marry O'Toole. She finds competing with a dead woman to be a real challenge.

    Meanwhile, Virgina Madsen becomes Spano's love interest. O'Toole is outstanding as the brilliant rapscallion, and Spano is actually a kindred spirit, although he doesn't know it at first. We get good breast exposure from both actresses, and lots of pokies from Hemingway as well. IMDb readers have this at 5.8 of 10. Ebert awards 2 1/2 stars. It is a typical O'Toole effort so your enjoyment of the film will depend on your enjoyment of his familiar character. This is a C. If you enjoy O'Toole's sense of humor, you should enjoy this one, and the nudity is a definite plus.

    Continuing the Charlize Theron tribute in honor of her Best Actress victory, featuring her big frontal appearance:


    The Devil's Advocate (1997):

    Really enjoyable film. Al Pacino as Satan, using lawyers to rule the world. My original goal was to do some caps and ignore the movie, but I ended up watching virtually every scene, even though I just happened to watch it with my daughter last week. (Same deal that time. She watched it; I walked by; I got hooked in again!)

    Also some terrific nudity.

    If I were to make up a Top 20 list of films that have no purpose other than visceral, junky entertainment, this would be one of the films from the recent decades which would make my list, along with Raiders of the Lost Ark and There's Something About Mary.

    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the vids says the video codec:  DivX Decoder Filter & audio codec:  Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with. When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG Layer-3.  A friend of mine told me about compressing the audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
    When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp & asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost too much to buy in my opinion.

    A reader says:

    You mentioned that some users were having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool designed to determine what codec is needed for a video. http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9. The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly larger, and slightly lower quality.

    More Oscar Stuff

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    If you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed, but sometimes you might even be happily surprised, and that's the case with this 2002 movie.

    The movie is about a computer whiz and his roommate, who partner to build a successful Internet adult site which allows participants to webcam each other for money. There are in fact several sites like that on the Internet, and in most cases, on-line sex is the main reason for the exchange.

    This could have simply been a sleazy titillation flick, but in fact, it explored these on-line relationships in a very intelligent way, and the result was a very well-done drama exploring the characters behind the on-line personna.

    The digital video film was shot in 18 days. The on-line stuff in the movie was for the most part real, but using a local network in a large building rather than the Internet, and much of it is captures of webcam screens, meaning the pictures are webcam quality. In the case of Liz Owens, ALL of her appearances were done this way. This made for a very tough cap, but the webcam stuff had to be included for the collages to make sense, so the collage quality is all over the place, however the movie is definitely something that most Internet users will enjoy.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    And Who Needs It More? - USA Today reports that every winner and presenter at the Oscars got a gift bag valued at $110,000. It includes a $500 espresso machine, a gift certificate for a $6,000 43-inch Samsung HDTV and a year of satellite TV, a $1,500 steak dinner at Morton's, $12,000 worth of Victoria's Secret lingerie and fragrances, $2500 worth of Revlon makeup, and what Joan Rivers called the cheesiest gift of all, round-trip airfare from L.A. to New Zealand -- business class.

  • What the hell, Russell Crowe will use it.
  • The cast of "Lord of the Rings" can use that...Business class has plenty of leg room, if you're a Hobbit.
  • The gift Joan Rivers thinks is most useful: the $2500 worth of makeup.
  • It's nice that the stars get this, since they're so underpaid and spend so little on themselves.

    Render Unto Caesar - Caesar's Palace also gave all the major nominees a gift basket valued at $32,000, which includes penthouse accommodations, shopping at Vegas malls, and a lot of the things the stars can "put directly into their medicine cabinets," including Crest teeth whitening strips, toothpaste and a micro hair trimmer.

  • And $10,000 worth of drugs.
  • Yeah, those movie stars are in dire need of teeth whitening and hair plucking.
  • In Robin Williams' bag, the micro hair trimmer was replaced with a weed whacker.

    And She LOVES Poles! - In Queensland, Australia, people who don't vote have to pay a $37.50 fine if they don't have a legitimate reason. The electoral commissioner says the most common excuse is illness, followed by kaput engines in cars, planes and boats. But he said the all-time best excuse was from a woman in Nimbin, who said she couldn't make it to the polls on time last month because she was busy having group sex with 30 men.

  • That gave the 30 men an excuse, too.
  • All, coincidentally, running for office.
  • Besides, she couldn't take time off from work.
  • She'd done 29 of them, but she didn't want to leave Chad dangling.

    John Kerry Is British? He Looks French - Transform Medical Group, a British private cosmetic surgery provider, says that one in ten plastic surgeries in the UK is now done on a man. The number has doubled over the past two years, with nose jobs, liposuction and eye-bag removal the top requests, although tightening flabby buttocks is also popular. One surgeon said there's been a generational shift and men in their 40s are no longer embarrassed to spend money on their looks, whether it's designer clothes, expensive haircuts, plastic surgery or gym memberships.

  • But they never use the gym memberships, which is why they need liposuction on their flabby buttocks.
  • One in 10 plastic surgery procedures is done on a man...That man: Michael Jackson.
  • Men used to pay plastic surgeons to give their wives bigger boobs, now they pay to make their own smaller.

    No More Cheesy Photos - Wisconsin has passed a new law prohibiting schools from signing exclusive contracts with yearbook photographers. It's supposed to foster competition and prevent monopolies; but the best news for students is that they don't have to settle for a bad school yearbook photo from the school, but can provide their own.

  • Thanks to PhotoShop, every high school student will now look like either Josh Harnett or Britney Spears.
  • The bad news: no matter how good your photo, 20 years from now, you'll still look like a dork to your kids.

    Now Take Off The Other Mask - Michael Jackson was pulled over by police in Colorado as he was headed to a Wal-Mart to go shopping incognito by wearing a ski mask. The cops asked him to identify himself, Jackson pulled off the ski mask, and they let him go on.

  • First they screamed, then they let him go on.
  • It was like the unmasking scene in "The Phantom of the Opera."
  • In pulling off the ski mask, Michael dislocated his arm...and lost his nose.
  • Wal-Mart must be having a sale on Revlon face putty.
  • Michael didn't realize there was anything alarming about walking into a store wearing a ski mask. Why, it's as innocent as sleeping with someone else's kids!
