"The Devil's Advocate"

Devil's Advocate (1997) is a magnificently filmed movie that I did early in my capping efforts, and decided to do properly. As a refresher, it stars Keanu Reeves as a bright young attorney, Charlize Theron as his wife, and Al Pacino in a stellar performance as Satan. While it got a little wordy near the end, it is a terrific film. IMDB readers score it 7.0 of 10, and critics mostly agree that it is a good film (86% positive at Rotten Tomatoes).

Charlize Theron and Connie Nielsen show all three Bs, and Tamara Tunie shows her breasts. I give this a high B-.

    "Heaven's Gate"

    Heaven's Gate (1980), as most of you will remember, was Michael Cimino's $44m dollar flop that grossed $1.5m, and brought about the demise of United Artists. True to the nature of the film, I did rather lackluster images a couple of years ago, and received a request to try again. It is not easy material to work with, as it is often dark, tinted, and full of color noise and grain, not to mention all of the dust added for western realism. The results this time are much better. Again, for those who don't remember, Isabelle Huppert runs around naked for the last 2/3 of the film. I can't give this film less than a C- for several reasons. First, the photography is stunning. Second, it is of real historical importance. Third, they did achieve the look of the old west. Fourth, the exposure is very good. Don't watch it for plot, pace, or direction, but it is worth seeing once.

    There is a new Encyclopedia volume for Isabelle Huppert. She has done nudity in at least 17 movies, 13 of them by the time she was 28. (Elodie Bouchez has matched the latter achievement.) Huppert did a nude scene as recently as 1998, past her 43rd birthday. About two dozen of the Huppert images have never appeared in the Fun House.

    There is also a new encyclopedia volume for Deborah Shelton. Deb is another one of those actresses whose birthday is a moveable feast.  After winning Miss USA in 1970, she finished as first runner-up in the 1970 Miss Universe Pageant. She was 21 then, so that would make her birthday November, 1948. She graduated from high school in June, 1966, also making her probable birthday November, 1948 (possibly even November 1947, thus graduating at 18). Amazingly, her birthday has now migrated to the 1952 range, so it looks like four years have been shaved, possibly five. Better still, she was first runner-up to Miss World USA in 1968, so she is now claiming that happened when she was 15!! Like Mimi Rogers, she would have to have graduated from high school at 13, and finished 8th grade at age 9, making her only slightly ahead of Mozart in rapid childhood development.

    There are new encyclopedia volumes for Elisabeth Shue, Laura Linney, and that noted existential philosopher, Jordan (aka Katie Price). I'd like to hear a conversation between those three. Linney's father is a playwright. She graduated from Brown, and then from Julliard. Shue graduated from Harvard after transferring from Vassar. Jordan once attended a school of fish.

    There is a new encyclopedia volume for Charlize Theron. I was surprised to see that Charlize is still only 26 years old, although it seems like she has been around forever and has starred in every movie Miramax has ever made. She debuted in 1996!

    The Rosanna Arquette, Jennifer Connelly, Helena Bonham Carter, Virginie Ledoyen, Sheryl Lee, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Charlotte Rampling volumes are updated. When all the smoke has cleared, Ledoyen may end up at the very top of the heap. She's already done nude scenes in ten different movies. Oh, I know that doesn't sound that impressive - until you realize that she just turned 25!

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.

    • 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 I inexplicably determined there might be something of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    Jeri Ryan No nudity, but excellent cleavage in "Dracula 2000".

    Milla Jovovich Pokies and brief toplessness in scenes from one of my all time favorite movies, "The 5th Element".

    Melissa Moore The busty blonde goes topless in scenes from the Leslie Nielsen spoof of the Exorcist, "Repossessed" (1990).

    Hardcore Hankster

    'Caps of a whole bunch of unknowns doing some nasty deeds, from the 1980, 15 million dollar porn epic "Caligula".

    • Unknowns showing and doing everything. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
    I'm sure most of us don't often see a whole lot of movies from the Philippines. But if you're into Asian babes, I think you'll enjoy these images from "Naked Nights" (especially the images of Aya Medel).

    A few more rare finds, courtesy of Mr. Skin.

    • The legendary French actress Jeanne Moreau, topless in scenes from "The Immortal Story" (1968) (link #1) and "La Notte" (1960) (links 2 and 3).
      (1, 2, 3)

    • Irene Cara, topless in scenes from "Fame" (1980). Of course she's best known for the Oscar she won for the song from "Flashdance", "What a Feeling".
      Or if you're like me, you know her from her work in "D.C. Cab".

    • Harley Jane Kozak, very brief breast exposure in a love scene with 30-something guy in "Side Out". But here's the real question, which is more rare, Kozak nudity, or Peter Horton's acting career?

    • Wendi Winburn rear nudity in "Amazons and Gladiators" (2001).

    Scoop, The scheduled January release date was changed at the last minute. Latest word is that it will come out sometime this spring. Just wanted everyone to stay on the lookout for more caps.


    A note from Fun House contibutor, Arthur Figgis...


    There is a little mistake in yesterday's issue of the Funhouse:

    Angela Schijf is not from Germany, but from the Netherlands. In Germany nobody knows, who she is. Except for me, of course :-)
