Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format.

Womb Raider (2003) is a spoof of Tomb Raider staring Lauren Hayes as Cara Loft, adventurer. Her father is dead, and she is summoned by Dr. Scrotus to carry on his mission and find the three wombs, which, when reunited, will give the owner the power of creation. She must travel to Arabia, the African Jungle, and Tibet to find them, all the while tailed by Antoinette Abbott. Most of the travel and most of the confrontations involve female nudity and girl/girl sex. For instance, the way to defeat the Zulu princess, Shalimar, is to kiss her on the lips, completely ignoring her nasty looking spear.
There is clearly one person to admire or blame for this effort. Randolf Scott was credited as Art Director, Still Photographer, "A" camera Operator 2, Property Master and Buyer, Best Boy Electrician, Best Boy Grip, Costume Supervisor, Recording Mixer & Recordist, Foley Mixer & Recordist, Score & Song Programming, Music Editor, Production Manager, Editor, Producer, Story, Writer and Director. Further, he wrote all of the songs and performed them, played a small part, and even wrote the IMDb summary. Now that is what I call trying your best.
California, Utah and Arizona locations were used for the exotic locals. There is plenty of nudity, including full frontal from Lauren Hayes and Antoinette Abbott, and breasts from Shalimar, Annie Body, Mercedes Bin, Sirena Scott and Crystal White. Note that there are no images of the last three. There were always in scenes with the main players, and two of them wore masks the entire time.
IMDb readers say 3.4. There are some impressive overlays done in editing, and this has a lot of production value for what was clearly a minuscule budget. Much of the acting could have been better, but it is no worse than similar genre efforts, and Hayes can deliver lines. This is a C.
'Caps and comments by Dann:
"A History of Violence"
After a fairly gut-grabbing start, this very good 2005 thriller settles into a fairly leisurely pace, but just when you start to wonder if the movie will start to plod, it takes off again in surprising directions.
A mild-mannered family man is forced to defend himself, his diner, and his customers against two extremely mean criminals who try to rob him. When they start to assault people, the man takes drastic action and becomes the hero of the small Indiana town he lives in.
His courage gains national media attention, and suddenly, mobsters from the northeast show up claiming he is someone they've been looking for. Although he insists he doesn't know them, they start threatening his family. From there, the movie takes off on a wild ride.
This is a top-notch thriller with great work by the cast and crew.

WILL FERRELL NOT DEAD
Not Really A Crasher - Tuesday, some hoaxster put a fake press release onto
the Internet, claiming that Will Ferrell had died in a hang gliding
accident. Ferrell fans were suspicious immediately because in "Wedding
Crashers," Ferrell's character fakes a hang gliding accident to pick up
women at funerals.
* So if all his fans came to his funeral and he was still alive, he could
really pick up women!
* I heard he died from inhaling the toxic fumes of Sex Panther cologne.
* So Will Ferrell is definitely NOT dead...But after seeing "Bewitched" and "Kicking & Screaming", his career may be.

Eva Longoria and Anna Kounikova. Teri Hatcher was named the star who looks

* Demi spent $100,000 on plastic surgery and looks worse than Donald Trump?
Talk about buyer's remorse!...She should tell her surgeon, "You're fired!"
* On HDTV, you can see the paws and tail on Donald Trump's hair.
