"I Am Curious Blue"

I Am Curious Blue (1968) is the same story as the Yellow version, and shot at the same time, but was cut to focus on different things. This film takes on the state church, prison reform, lesbian sex, sex education, birth control, impotence, and is very much about relationships. The basic premise is that Lena is searching for her mother. We have full frontal from three women, Lena Nyman, Bim Warne and Sonja Lindgren. The film is slightly less boring than the Yellow version, because there is less emphasis on politics. IMDB readers have it at 5.8 of 10. I will give this Blue version a C- for more nudity and a little less boring story.

    "Killing Me Softly"

    Killing Me Softly (2002) is a thriller staring Heather Graham as an American from the midwest, who is Living in London with a quiet structural engineer, and working making CDs and Web sites for corporate customers. On the way to the office, she and Joseph Fiennes meet at a crosswalk, and fall instantly in lust. She ends up going to his home, where the two practically rape each other. She can't resist him, and finding out that he is a famous mountain climber and a hero just makes him all the more attractive. She moves in with him, and then marries him. That is when she starts getting upsetting notes, and she begins to suspect that he murdered several previous girlfriends.

    The sex scenes between Graham and Fiennes sizzle, and Graham shows all three Bs among several sex scenes, and changing clothes outdoors after her wedding. I screened the Unrated DVD version. The bush exposure is very brief. IMDB readers have this at 5.5 of 10. The film did not receive a US theatrical release, and the few reviews on line are not favorable. The fault was not with the two stars. They had real chemistry, the sex scenes were red hot, and I immediately cared about the characters. The problem was a poor script. The same story could have been told much better. There were also some continuity problems, especially with her bra in the first sex scene. It kept moving from pushed below her breasts, to pushed above her breasts, to covering her breasts. The photography, however, is top notch, as is the DVD transfer. The Unrated version has Widescreen on one side, and 4/3 on the other. This is a C-, and that is giving extra credit for getting Graham naked.

    "The Presidio" an update...

    For those who have been curious about the story from the Scoop mail bag...The German version of the DVD is in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Hungarian, but is 94 minutes. The US release is 96 minutes and the UK version is 95 minutes.

    Spain seems to be selling the German version and Italy seems to be selling the same version.

    Canada has the US version at 96 minutes, and shows it as being out of stock at the manufacturer.

    Australia also has the 95 minute version, with the same languages as the German, but region 4.

    Based on the above, you will get an English soundtrack no matter where you buy it, but it is pot luck which version might have the added footage.

    Hey Scoop,

    On Wednesday, March 12th episode of "One Life to Live", the actress Kassie Depavia was scantily cad in lingerie, then there was a nip slip! Did anyone catch any 'caps of this?

    What're the odds?

    75th Academy Awards: Best Actor in a Supporting Role

    This is kinda cool, unless you're Chris Cooper, who really deserves the Oscar. Just about a week ago, Cooper was the odds-on favorite for the best supporting actor Oscar. As of this minute, the Cult of Walken is causing a major shift in the odds, and they are now almost co-favorites.


    Bet Selections Win Odds
    Chris Cooper 1.6
    Christopher Walken 2.0
    Ed Harris 11.0
    John C. Reilly 11.0
    Paul Newman 16.0



    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.

    Graphic Response
    • Kate Capshaw and Elle Macpherson, both ladies are briefly topless and kissing in a lesbian scene from "A Girl Thing".

    • Beth Bates, full frontal, rear nudity and even a gyno-view in scenes from "The Attic Expeditions".

    'Caps and comments by Brainscan:

    "Married People Single Sex: The Return". Okay, this was a big mistake. On several different levels.

    Let me count the ways:
    1) Meant to rent a movie with a similar title, one with a Hefmate prancing 'round all nekkid, but picked up this one instead;
    2) Tuna had already capped the bejeebers out of this movie and so anything I might add is as the proverbial drop in the proverbial ocean;
    3) Tuna warned us at the time that the mofo was hard to cap 'cuz there was so much motion blur. Brother Tuna, were you ever right;
    4) Rented it from Blockbuster. I never rent things from Blockbuster. Ever. Well, okay... once. This movie, to be exact. Why? Because you know the version BB rents is all cut up, with the good parts lying the floor;
    5) the movie flat out, plainly and simply, sucks donkey balls. You wanna make a talkie movie, with lots and lots of dialogue? Okay by me, but that puppy had better be clever, intelligent, witty. The Lion in Winter comes to mind. Or Snatch. Dogma, even. This movie is to Dogma as Bush is to Lincoln. Or Jefferson. Or Rutherford B. Hayes, for that matter. Stupid, simple (in all its negative conotations), slow-witted, humorless and oh so terribly predictable.

    It was appalling. It was atrocious. It had four naked babes.... I loved it.

    In some order or another, those babes are:

    Beverly Lynne, current most-active B movie cutie in two sport-humpin scenes. First four collages show her consorting with a fella as her hubbies watches from outside. Turns out he likes to see his wife boffin other guys. Yep, that one's way up on all our lists, right fellas? Last three collages have her doing a girlfriend, played by Dawn Arellano.

    • Beverly Lynne (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)

    Speaking of Dawn, she shows up in three scenes and five collages. First she does her own hubby, then she does Beverly and finally she does Beverly's hubby. Dawn is a bit of okay, although her nose could use a little work... then she'd be a sure-enough hottie.

    • Dawn Arellano (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    A tall drink of water by the name of Robyn Dale does the only creditable job in the movie. She shows some bum in a thong and mini-hooties whilst cavorting with him her husband.

    • Robyn Dale (1, 2)

    And last up is Josie Pearl, who plays what is euphemistically called an escort. Here she escorts most of clothes off, revealing a nice set of lingerie (collages 1, 4 and 5) and a superior caboose (collages 2 and 3). But just as the top is coming off, the scene fades to black. You gotta figure there is another version of this movie that keeps going because this babe looks as though she's taken off her clothes in front of a camera once of twice before. So convinced was I of that I asked The Gimp to search the web for images of her. The last collage shows what he found. Seems she had her own website, has done appearances for a couple of mags and has been on the hefmag show. When I'm right I'm really, really right.

    'Caps and comments by Hankster:

    The old time machine takes us back to 1970 and a rather obscure film "The Devil's Garden".

    Sandy Carey is not a well known name, but then again she is if like me you are a fan of seventies soft core, sexploitation or whatever you want to call it. Sandy made lots of movies in that genre.

    Here we see Sandy showing the boobs and by cap #4 becoming my favorite a "Babe in Bondage" and while tied up even gets to suck a little toe. In the finale she is having sex with a native.

    From The Idea Men In New York - Stung by a drop in profits and anti-Americanism, McDonald's franchises in the Middle East are trying to show they're really locally-owned by introducing a new sandwich: the McArabia. It's grilled chicken, lettuce and tomato on Arab bread with something called "Arab Sauce."

  • "Arab Sauce"...You know, Petroleum.
  • McArabia? Wasn't this covered in a recent episode of "The Simpsons?"
  • You can bet Arab McDonald's still use the name "French fries."

    The Beastie Boys have just posted "In a World Gone Mad," their first new song in five years, on their Web site, criticizing Bush's "mid-life crisis war." Beastie MCA told, "You just look at the TV and see this guy who's supposed to be representing us, and it just feels ridiculous."

    And what is the Beastie Boys' non-ridiculous solution to the Iraq crisis? Here's a quote from the lyrics of the song...

    "...You and Saddam should kick it, like back in the day, With the cocaine and Courvoisier..."

  • Mmmmm, cocaine and Courvoisier! Is there any problem they CAN'T solve?!

    She Wouldn't Drink Pepsi - A touring exhibit of bizarre pop star paraphernalia from a radio station has debuted in Bochum, Germany. It includes an ashtray used by Robbie Williams, a pen Kylie Minogue used to sign autographs, and the star attraction: a moldy glass that Britney Spears drank orange juice from during an interview in January 2002. It was never washed. The station said visitors "can decide for themselves whether ordinary things assume a certain aura once they have been touched by a celebrity."

  • That's not an aura, it's just mold spores being released.
  • I might go see this, if I could watch Britney drink from that glass again.
  • Russell Crowe's clothing must have a real aura: none of it has EVER been washed!
  • They've even got a toilet bowl that Posh Spice made herself throw up in.
