Junior is on a mini-working-sorta-vacation, so I'm writing the page for a
bit. He's in Amsterdam with some buds, the lucky dog, but will resume writing
the page from Europe in a day or two, assuming he doesn't discover brown cafes.

The New York Post has some advice for Hollywood wives: Fear the curse of
Penelope Cruz. Her cinematic history shows that the Spanish sexpot's
leading men tend to lose their wives and girlfriends when they star in movies with her. The
latest was Tom Cruise's public unloading of Nicole Kidman while filming "Vanilla Sky"
opposite Cruz. Before that, Nic Cage announced plans to divorce Patricia Arquette while shooting "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" with Cruz.
Still earlier, Matt Damon
forgot all about Winona Ryder immediately after wrapping up "All the Pretty Horses." The
British actress Sadie Frost, the Post says, might want to be extra careful now
that her husband, Jude Law, is set to share the screen with Cruz in "Diary of a
Young London Physician." Insiders say Cruz just signed on to the project.

It's a frigging
film festival here today. I notice that Tuna did Highway. I have a feeling
that Darko is a tad better.
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.
Highway (2001) is a grunge road movie. Jared Leto is caught screwing Kimberley
Kates by her gangster husband, and has to flee Las Vegas. He convinces his best
friend, Jake Gyllenhaal, to go with him. Jake wants to see an old flame who has
moved to Seattle, so off they go, the day after Kurt Cobain committed suicide,
and with the bad guys in pursuit. Along the way, they encounter standard road
problems, like rescuing a runaway hooker (Selma Blair), and saving the
"alligator boy." By the time they get to Seattle, they are four -- Jake, Jared,
Selma, and an aging hippie.Thumbnails
I don't like grunge, I couldn't understand about half of what they said, they
spend much of their time stoned, and the plot wasn't compelling. The high point
occurred early, when Kates shows breasts and bush while screwing Jared. IMDB
readers say 5.8 of 10, and I give C-. I have seen far better buddy road movies.

"Life as a House" (2001)
Life as a House (2001) is a weepy dying man character-based comedy/drama. Kevin
Kline is fired from his job building models from an architectural firm, and is
diagnosed with terminal cancer the same day. He decides to build a house,
involving his son, who lives with his ex, to try and turn the kid around, and
earn his love. The kid is anti-social, has been using every drug imaginable
since he was 12, and turns gay tricks when he needs spare change. Due to the
therapeutic aspects of building a house together, the kid turns around, Kline's
ex falls in love with him again, and everybody in the movie becomes a better
The exposure is from Mary Steenburgen, who shows buns and a hint of breast after
nearly being caught screwing her daughters boyfriend by her daughter. Hayden
Christensen, as Kline's son, was superb. Many liked his film. The IMDB score is
7.7 of 10. Ebert says 2 1/2 stars, while Beraedinelli gives a full three. I give
it a C. Those who like weepy dying man movies will be on familiar ground here.

Long weekend, Mrs. Brainscan was away and the shop ran itself. Result? Dozens
of vidcap collages, hundreds of scans. Let's do the caps today.
First off, some original stuff. From Night Eyes,
Shannon Tweed in her prime
and Lisa Saxton. Several things to mention 'bout Lisa: she did the nekkid
things in a couple of movies (then several Hefmag lingerie-type magazine
thingees) but there isn't a hint of her in the Encyclopedia. This is
dangerous, when a babe isn't in the Encyclopedia. It indicates a rip in the
time-space continuum, so let's stitch up that one with another
The second collage includes three frames shot from Nebraska whilst the
grappling couple was in Kansas. Why such a long shot, you ask? Well, guys it
was a bit more suggestive in the moving frames but there is some
indication that Lisa and her friend might have been conjugating verbs on
camera. Particularly the verb "to love." Or maybe not. What we need here
is a DVD.
Another collage is of B movie bim
Roxanne Kernohan in Phoenix, the Warrior.
Phoenix was played by uber-babe Kathleen Kinmont, but she kept the clothes on.
Next up is the last of the stuff from Tuna's capture of
Timegate: Tales of
the Saddletramps. Babe of the day is Taimie Hannum (1,2,3,4,5,
6). I was not especially
fond of Taimie until Tuna sent me these, but I converted on the spot: she looks
terrific in this movie. Stitched together 33 frames in six easy-carrying
packages. Boobs in all of them, a small hint of bush but other frames
make it clear Taimie was wearing some sort of patch, Sheesh.
The next batch includes a mixture of caps, most of which I pulled off usenet
and then played with for a while. These include:
Last up is Avalon Anders and her robohooters in a Beverly Hills Bordello
episode, entitled, "What Your Wife Won't Do." This was planned as a 30
minute episode but turned into miniseries that stretched over 9 hours. It
include vignettes entitled, "Agreeing with something I had to say", "Telling me
something I wanted to hear", "Watching a video without asking me the dumbest
damn questions you can possibly think of". Oh there were more, but I am sure
you guys saw every last one of them and nodded sadly with each. One more
- Charlie Spradling's exuberant bod in Mirror, Mirror. Nice bum and
partial breasts in the shower.
- Christina Hart in Umpire's caps from Games Girls Play. True story: I was
13 when the aged P's, their friends and I went on the road trip from
hell. Stopped one night at a hotel that carried Cinemax; the adults went to
the bar and left me by my lonesome, but there on that cable channel was
this movie. At that point, I would have sold my mother to the gypsies
for Christina Hart.
- Former Miss USA Deborah Shelton in DonJuan's captures of Blind Vision. I
stitched together a couple of frames to get the image on the left.
- Goldie Hawn and her wonderful bum in There's a Girl in My Soup.
- Michelle Johnson in
Blame It On Rio. These are caps from the
under-represented, topless on the beach at night scene. Spent about a week
trying to get the frames looking as good as the young Ms. Johnson deserved.
- Mimi Rogers in a NAP single frame from Rapture. This is the only frame
I've seen from this movie that captures both of Mimi's megahooters.
- And Monica Belluci in a montage of two frames from
Malena. The result is a
full frontal of Miss Monica, and that ain't nothin' to sneeze at.
Scoop, we continue with Cheri Caffaro in "Girls
are for Loving". Today she concludes her fight scene on the beach (she wins).
Then it's on to a love scene with the boyfriend. The best is yet to come.

Pat's comments in yellow...
Scoop, This one, you have to see to appreciate.
The following from IMDB today. No female nudity, but if seeing Ewan McGregor's
light saber turns you on, you'll enjoy this one. Personally, I'd rather see a
Ewan McGregor Happy To Carry On Stripping
Actor Ewan McGregor is keeping his adoring fans happy - he plans to keep
stripping on screen. The Star Wars actor is known for taking risque roles like
those in The Pillow Book and Velvet Goldmine, and admits he enjoys exposing
himself - because it makes him feel "powerful". He says, "Being naked was far
more worrying for everyone else on the set than it was for me. Everyone's trying
not to look. I actually enjoyed it, the truth be told. There was something
incredibly powerful about it, like swimming naked. Usually you'd get arrested
for that sort of thing, but I got paid!"
This next one is of more interest to us heteros. If the
Taliban caught you carrying a vidcap of Kate Winslet's nude scene in "Titanic,"
I wonder if they'd cut off your right hand? Boy, talk about a punishment worse
Winslet A Pin-up In Afghanistan
Kate Winslet has become a secret pin-up in Afghanistan. The actress' Titanic
role became an underground hit in Afghanistan, where watching western films was
outlawed under the strict Taliban regime. American broadcaster Diane Sawyer told
Winslet, a guest on American breakfast show Good Morning America, she had seen
posters of the actress as Rose in Titanic during a recent trip to Afghanistan
and asked locals to explain why the actress was everywhere. Sawyer said, "They
all knew exactly who you were. They had been hiding videos of you in food bags,
under their pillows and passing them from hand to hand. They said it was one of
the things that
sustained them to be able to share Titanic during all those years." Winslet
remarked, "That's so amazing. That makes me want to cry. It reconfirms that
Titanic was enormous." The British Oscar-nominated actress admits she too has
come to realise how big Titanic has become - even in the most remote places. She
adds, "I remember being in India soon after it had been released and I was
walking in the foothills of the Himalayas researching another job. An old man,
who must have been 90-years-old, just looked up at me and said, 'You, Titanic.'
I was in the middle of nowhere."
Alicia Silverstone no longer looks like a cow because she
now lives by grazing on hay. Ironic, ain't it?...
Alicia Loves Her Vegan Diet
Alicia Silverstone has stopped worrying about her weight because being a vegan
has made it tough for her to get fat. The actress, who became an obsessive
dieter after she was dubbed "really fat" in her role as Batgirl in Batman &
Robin, insists she now eats whatever and whenever she wants - thanks to her
vegan diet. She says, "I always used to have to worry about how I looked. I
became insane about the way I looked. I freaked out and I decided screw that,
I'm going to eat whatever I want whenever I want. I highly recommend doing that.
I became a vegan and I knew I'd start taking care of health issues as well as
personal ethical issues. Three weeks after I started the diet the weight started
to fall off and I don't ever have to worry about my figure ever again. They even
make vegan doughnuts and vegan
These last two I just find interesting. One of the
contenders for King of the Funhouse, Joey Tribiani, may get his own show...
Friends' Joey Set For Spin-off
Friends favorite Joey Tribiani is set to become a permanent fixture on TV
screens - if plans for a Frasier-style spin-off series are approved. The lovable
bungling lothario, played by heart-throb Matt LeBlanc, will be "definitely less
dumb" and will be living in Los Angeles, continuing to try and make it as an
actor. LeBlanc, 34, is said to be extremely excited about the project, if it
should come together when Friends finishes. According to Britain's The Mirror
newspaper, a source says, "He gets a job in a Dynasty series as the playboy son
but it's cancelled after the first episode." This would not be LeBlanc's first
spin-off. He and Joseph Bologna headed the cast of a short-lived Married... With
Children spin-off called Top Of The Heap.
Finally, Susan Sarandon slams the SATs because her kid is
having a hard time getting a score higher than her body temperature. Could it
be the problem is not with the test but with the fact that the poor kid
inherited her ability to think from Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon?...
Sarandon Blasts American Exams
Actress Susan Sarandon is upset with America's SAT college entrance exam system
- because it isn't a true indication of how bright a teenager is. Sarandon's
daughter Eva, 17, is currently in the middle of SAT hell and is having to retake
the stressful exam because she was too ill to do it justice the first time
around. Sarandon says, "She's so stressed about having to take her SATs and it's
a horrible system. It's so unnatural. You go into this room and you can't drink
water for fear you might have written something on the bottle. She was sick, her
nose was dripping onto her test score. She was so ill and now she has to take it
again. It's just not a good indication."
