The nudity from Sunday's L-Word. The clip with Rachel Shelley and Alexandra
Hedison is hot girl-on-girl action. The clip with Erin Daniels is not sexy at
all. It is a sad bit of shocking medical reality. Zipped .avi video made by
"Playboy won't pull its March issue over actress Jessica Alba's claim that she
was made an unwitting cover girl to fool readers into thinking she is nude
- "The magazine added that celebrities routinely grace its cover without
appearing naked inside." In other words, Playboy's counter-argument is that
it's OK to dupe their readers with the Alba pic, because duping their readers
is their standard business practice!

Bangor Daily News reviewer ruins Ultraviolet's valiant attempt at 0% positive
reviews. Some other critics said:
- "...so awful that you'd swear it had been directed by Uwe Boll."
- "utter crap"
- "laughably atrocious"
- "visibly low-budget CG work, exceptionally hackneyed and imitative action
and dialogue ... nearly lifeless."
- "all the costumes match the colors of these sets, further amping the
unintentional hilarity of the combat set-pieces, which come dangerously close
to looking like an incredibly expensive deodorant commercial. Wimmer soon
shrugs and gives himself over to complete camp by the end, which features
Violet dueling with the villain using flaming swords. Meant to shake action
conventions, it looks more like a Hawaiian luau gone horribly awry."

in the first place"

"SpoofCard calling cards
offers you the ability to change what someone sees on their caller ID display
when they receive a phone call."
- Frankly, I don't want people to have this ability. On the other hand, the
last time I picked up my phone, rather than letting the answering machine get
it, was about 15 years ago.
trailer for Let Them Eat
- "Let Them Eat" is a poetic and haunting journey which spans from the
turbulent time of the French Revolution to present day. From the prison cell
of the former Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, to Bella, a woman who seems
to be leading a parallel life with a deep connection to the former queen.
Seamlessly drifting from present to past, each woman's story unfolds while
both struggle to make peace with their past before one leaves the Earth and so
the other can embrace her future. Laced within the story are beautiful spoken
word poems which delve deep into the hearts and souls of our two heroines
exposing their secret world of passion, lust, pain, love and triumph. This is
a story of great courage, strength and ever-lasting love which bridges the two
lives and the two women together forever."

Wow - here's some breaking news:
Aiken just might be gay
The text reads:
- "I'm not sure what it's going to take to
convince some people that Clay Aiken is gay. Does he have to send his
proctologist flowers with a note saying call me, or is it enough that the
National Enquirer went to press yesterday with web cam pictures and a
transcript of Aiken soliciting sex from a 22 year old male schoolteacher in
Boston on the gay chat site Manhunt.net"

Gambling City (1975), or La Città gioca d'azzardo, is not really a Giallo at all, but more of a thriller. It seems to have been shot in English, making it even more odd. Luc Merenda is a master poker player, even when not using his considerable slight of hand skills. He arrives in a large casino in Milan, and wins a job along with a large hand. The establishment is anything but honest, and someone of his skill is a very valuable asset to the wheel chair bound, but powerful owner.
The problem starts when chesty Merenda seduces the lovely Dayle Haddon, girlfriend of the boss's mean, violent and immature son. The son swears to get even.
Haddon shows breasts. Her biography is nearly as interesting as the film. Born in Canada, she studied dance, ending up in a ballet company at a young age. She moved to Hollywood to follow a boyfriend and landed a role with Disney. Disney had big plans for her before she did a Playboy layout, then moved to Europe to do sleaze films. When her husband died suddenly in 1991 leaving her with a teenaged daughter to raise, she found nothing but closed doors due to her age. Finally landing a menial job in an ad agency, she learned that a coyote being used in an ad was making more money than she was. That did it. She started researching women in her demographic, and discovered that female baby boomers were becoming an important target of cosmetic companies. She knocked on lots of doors before landing something, but has parlayed that into her own compony and a twice weekly TV show as a beauty and aging expert.
IMDb rates this 6.3. It is an unusually accessible film by genre standards, and, except for a little more gore than we are used to in Hollywood thrillers, plays almost like a Hollywood effort. This is a C, as an ok thriller with a lovely female lead.
Midnight Temptations (1995) ends with apprehending the most likely suspect, who is guilty. In the only bit of inspiration in this entire film, none of the principles wins the fashion contest.
Wendy Hamilton shows breasts in three scenes, and possibly a bit of bush. Ava Fabian shows breasts in a very dark sex scene.
IMDb says 2.6. The movie has a very weak plot badly told, poor acting, disappointing nudity, horrendous camera work and lighting, rotten editing, sound that was over a second out of synch most of the time and was mostly unintelligible. Also, the DVD is featureless. It doesn't even have a menu or chapter marks. This is an easy F.
Our 'capper from the future returns!
From the UK movie starring Rupert Graves, Malcolm McDowell and Jennifer Jason Leigh...both of our little-known babes are topless while posing. In addition to her robo-hooters, Agnès Concaro also shows off some decent thong views.
In this 2005 film, one of our favorite French babes, Ludivine Sagnier, shows off her lovely toplessness.
Of today's goods, this is the only movie currently available on DVD. Stormy Shuff plays the role of "naked blonde" all too well, while the always sexy Roselyn Sanchez continues to tease us.

Didn't Tom Get Weepy And
Producers of Sunday's Oscarcast are worried it will get the lowest TV ratings
ever. So ABC's ads concentrate on all the big stars who might show up and not
the barely-seen nominated films. Nominees also got a DVD with Tom Hanks teaching
how not to make a boring acceptance speech. Hanks warns that they get just 60
seconds, so don't stop to kiss everyone on the way to the stage. If a group
wins, pick one person to do the talking. And don't read a laundry list of
thank-you names. Hanks reminds them that they're in the entertainment industry,
"so use a little of that Oscar-winning creativity to make your speech
* Well, that'll work for the Writers' Oscars ...
* Actually, Tom Hanks' DVD is kind of boring.
* If they'd remembered that before they made their movies, maybe we would've
actually seen some of them.
WAYANS PRESENTS "THE VAGINA DIALOGUES" - Brazilian
Damon Wayans is launching a Showtime sketch series called "D. Underground,"
which put out an unusual casting call on Craig's List. They are seeking three
actresses, two aged 18 to 30 and one over 50, who are comfortable with nudity,
for a sketch that will require them to walk onto a stage, sit on a stool and
open their legs. The ad says their faces will
not be shown, so they don't need a headshot, "but we do need to see a photo of
your vagina. To be considered for this role, please e-mail a tasteful photo of
your vagina with a contact phone number. "
* In Hollywood, even vaginas have cell phones.
* And remember, it has to be a tasteful photo of your vagina, because this
is a really classy show.
* Now we know Sharon Stone will be able to land roles when she's over 50.
