"Physical Desire"

Physical Desire (2003?) is another in the Intimate Strangers Skinemax series. The common hook seems to be the tavern owned by Tane McClure. This time, Kim Yates is a cocktail waitress, We see her having sex with her boyfriend, who then asks her to get his cousin Michelle von Flowtow a summer job at the tavern. She ends up having a summer fling with a customer, and in the climax to the summer, has a three way with him and Stacey Howell. This teaches her that sex with someone you know is actually better.

Yates and von Flowtow show everything, and I will let you reach your own conclusions as to what we see in the last von Flowtow image. Howell shows breasts, and maybe a little bush. This one was less coherent than the first episode, and the camera man went nuts in one scene with his zoom. It is slightly below average genre stuff, or C-.

    "21 Grams"

    21 Grams (2003) -- Let's cut to the chase. I detested this film, beginning to end. The non-linear time sequence, which I liked so much in The Sweet Hereafter, was done very badly here, not really conveying any information or dramatic effect. It seemed like. The stark lighting and grainy photography were a turnoff beginning to end. There was a single character in the entire film that I would intentionally spend five minutes with. I really couldn't spot a theme or message, except that people can fuck up their lives, and the lives of others.

    I find it ironic that the director, with such a non-linear narrative style. could have picked any frame from the film for the opening image. One would assume that he picked one of the best ones. It is a scene showing Naomi Watts asleep with a nipple exposed. In the one sex scene, where I couldn't tell if she was enjoying herself of weeping bitterly, she managed to show both breasts. If a nearly incoherent film that looks terrible, and is peopled with addicts, people dying of rejected heart transplants, women unable to conceive because a previous abortion scared her fallopian tubes, an accident killing a husband and both of his daughters, and an ex con turned Jesus freak who batters his children is your idea of entertainment, give it a watch. You will be in good company, as most of the experts praise it to the sky, and IMDb readers have it at 8.0 of 10. making it the 240th top film of all time. I will never watch it again, and regret sitting through it this time. C+.

    Waterworld (1995):

    The ol' widescreen conundrum strikes again. I watched this film hoping to see the scene pictured below. No dice. The available DVDs have only the widescreen version, which cuts off Tripplehorn's crotch. (The butt shot is a body double).

    • Full screen VHS caps. This is the scene I was hoping to capture on DVD, but no-o-o-o-o-o.
    • Widescreen DVD caps - Tripplehorn (1, 2, 3) (no nudity. Well, actually I'm not sure about the first one. I just presume there is no nudity. I assume we are looking at a thong, and not some 'tang.)
    • Widescreen DVD caps - Tripplehorn body double (1, 2)

    Comments here. If you are hoping for me to write a nasty put-down of the movie known as Fishtar, your hopes will be unfulfilled. I sorta like Waterworld. I don't love it, and I'm not blind to its flaws, but there was enough clay here for a great movie. Unfortunately, that movie never arrived, but some of its vestiges shine through, and are fun to watch.

    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the vids says the video codec:  DivX Decoder Filter & audio codec:  Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with. When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG Layer-3.  A friend of mine told me about compressing the audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
     
    When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp & asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost too much to buy in my opinion.

    A reader says:

    You mentioned that some users were having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool designed to determine what codec is needed for a video. http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9. The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly larger, and slightly lower quality.

    'Caps and review by CK Roach:

    "The Blue Max" (1966)
    "The Blue Max" is a classic aviation movie that I remember from my childhood. As a kid interested in anything that related to flying, this movie fueled my fancy. Due to the limitations of childhood (rigidly imposed bedtimes), I never got to see it completely until it came to DVD. It turns out that the DVD version was definitely worth the wait.

    This great movie was filmed in 1966 under the direction of John Guillermin. It stars George Peppard, James Mason, Ursula Andress, and Jeremy Kemp. The movie is a feast for the eyes and the ears. The film is loaded with spectacular aerial footage, and features a soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith. The dogfights are done with replicas of the real aircraft rather than with miniatures. This is not surprising in light of the generous six million dollar budget that was available. This movie also won the BAFTA award for best art direction in 1967.

    When I was young the dogfights scenes were all that was needed. Now, seeing this in it's entirety for the first time I am quite overwhelmed. The scenes are so well filmed that one can almost feel as if they are actually in the cockpit. What is more remarkable is that this movie was made without the use of computerized visuals that are so common today. My only regret is in seeing this movie on a regular television and not a large screen with a real sound system.

    The story takes place during WW1. It follows Bruno Stachel, a common German infantryman, who one day looks up from the trenches. He sees aircraft soaring above. One can almost feel his longing for escape from the mud and death below.

    He somehow transfers to aviation and reports for duty as a new pilot. His eyes are opened to the fact that he is a member of the working class and he is surrounded by the cream of German aristocracy. His fellow pilots never let him forget this either. When asked why he won't attend a memorial to a fallen comrade his reply is "In the trenches, we couldn't even bury the dead; there were too many of them. I've never had the time... to discuss them over a glass of champagne."

    He soon finds himself in a quest for the nations highest medal, The Blue Max. He must destroy twenty enemy aircraft to get this coveted award. It seems that he believes that only by winning this medal will he gain the respect of his fellow aviators. His quest will quickly transform him into almost a villian in the eyes of his commander. He seems to be in a great rivalry with his partner (played by Jeremy Kemp) who is rewarded with the medal early in the film.

    To further add conflict is the general, Count von Klugermann (played by James Mason) and his wife(Ursula Andress) who are related to Kemp. It isnt long until both the general and his wife take an interest to Stachel. The general sees Stachel as a hero to the people while his wife sees him as a potential lover. Without revealing anything to spoil the movie, Stachel's pursuit of the medal will set him up for a conflict with the general. The general will then have to choose a way to satisfy both honor of the German Army and the needs of the German people to have a hero.

    Flaws? Yes there are some. There are some minor technical details with the aircraft, like bombs on single seat fighters, but few. Perhaps the most annoying is from that great actor, James Mason. It is very hard for me when such a great actor will render a German character in a very British accent. He will later repeat this in the Sam Peckinpah film "Cross of Iron." Also, Ursula Andress' acting seems a little thin.

    The DVD version include only a trailer. There are no other special features for this film. This is a shame since a behind the scenes feature with all these aircraft would be delightful. This is more than made up for with the outstanding quality of the transfer. It is definitely worth the price (under $20 most places) and I encourage you to purchase it.

    Andress does her best and shows some skin in a poorly lit bedroom meeting with Stachel in the second half of the movie. Another item I was sure to not see on 1960's US television.

    This movie gets a rating of 6.4/ 10 by the IMDb.

    TRUMP DEFENDS GIANT "YOU'RE FIRED" SIGN
    The Proteges Thought Of It - New York City is threatening Donald Trump with several $2,500 fines for placing a giant sign reading "You're Fired," his catchphrase from NBC's "The Apprentice," on the Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan. Officials say he didn't get a permit and has been told four times to remove it. Trump told the Daily News that this is why people complain New York is hostile to business, saying the sign is a tourist attraction and "New York should appreciate it instead of fighting it."

  • And any employee who tries to take it down will be FIRED!
  • A $2500 fine for a million dollars worth of publicity. What a deal!
  • If they want to fine him for creating an eyesore, make him pay $2500 for his hair.


    "PSYCHIC" BOMB SCARE CANCELS FLIGHT
    Hey, We're Not Psychic! - A flight from Fort Myers, Florida, to Dallas was canceled after airport officials got a call from a psychic who had a feeling that there might be a bomb on board. The plane and passengers were searched, but nothing was found. A spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration said it was "unusual" but "in these times, we can't ignore anything."

  • Except the "feeling" they had that the psychic was fake.
  • The bomb turned out to be the in-flight movie, "Gigli."
  • The passengers were homicidal, but only toward the psychic.


    "WEEDMAN" DENIED NAME CHANGE
    Dopey Idea - Friday, a judge in Camden, New Jersey, rejected a request by Edward Forchion to change his name to "NJWeedman.com." He's a marijuana activist who claims he uses pot because of his religious beliefs and for medical reasons, and that's his website address. He's run for Congress three times, losing twice and dropping out once when he was indicted for drugs. The judge ruled that changing his name to NJWeedman.com would violate his early release by promoting an illegal activity.

  • Besides, there's a landscaping company in Newark with the same name.
  • But promoting an illegal activity is his JOB!
  • I have a feeling his friends will still call him "Weedman" anyway.
