"Al Sur de Grananda"

Al Sur de Grananda (2003) is a biopic of Gerald Brenan, one of the Bloomsbury Group, and one of Carrington's suitors. When it became obvious that his infatuation with her was vexing Ralph Partridge, he walked to southern Spain, figuring adventure was the next best thing to having Carrington. Spain was as exotic as he could afford. He embraced the culture, and the poor but beautiful Verónica Sánchez, including getting her pregnant, then returned to England when he heard that Lytton Strachey was very ill. Strachey's death was followed by Carrington's suicide, and Don Geraldo didn't return to Spain for three years, and when he did, he had an English wife in tow. He understood ad embraced the Spanish culture to such an extent, that he is a very popular historical character there.

Unlike Carrington, which I found boring as hell, this film was made as a lively comedy, and showed some of the lust that was central to the Bloomsbury group. It was beautifully filmed, Verónica Sánchez got completely naked repeatedly, and we also had full frontal and rear nudity from Sauce Ena, and breasts and buns from Bebe Rebolledo. IMDb readers have it at 6.5 of 10. It has not been released in any form in the US. I screened a Region 2 PAL from Spain. This was a biopic that is not only strong technically, but also has entertainment value, hence a strong B-.

    Uncovered (1994):

    Tuna and I covered this movie here. He liked it better than I did, but we both found it to be a pretty good watch. One of the primary reasons was the existence of  three nude scenes from Kate Beckinsale, who stopped getting naked then and there. Here are four .wmv files made from a massive Graphic Response video capture. (1, 2, 3, 4)


    Old School (2002):

    Tuna and I covered this movie here. Tuna didn't much care for this one, but I think it is one of the Top 10 comedies so far in the new millennium. Will Farrell finally found the right role, and he nailed it. This scene is the infamous KY wrestling scene with Corinne Kingsbury and Lisa Donatz, so let's get ready to rumble ...

    TV Guide was mistaken about Quiet Days in Hollywood. I'm sure they were actually referring to the nudity by Natasha Gregson Wagner, who does go full frontal in a shower scene.



    I saw the note in TV Guide & was going to email them about it, but had to join their internet site, so I said screw it ...  The full frontal is by Natasha Gregson Wagner, not clear but full frontal. I have it on tape & cd, but would take a week to find.



    Scoop's note: here's the scene in question.

    • 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 Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    The all-time classics

    • I can make a pretty safe guess that if you were born in the 1960s, this is your favorite nude scene ever:  Phoebe Cates coming out of the pool in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. (.avi version.wmv version).

    • Jennie Agutter running around in her non-outfit in Logan's Run. Ah, the fiery ritual of Carousel! (.avi version.wmv version).

    • One of my favorites. Jodie Foster stark naked in Nell. (.avi version.wmv version).

    • It just doesn't get any better than Michelle Pfeiffer removing contraband from her twat. After this scene in Into the Night, she would never do anything like this on camera again. It broke my heart that the widescreen DVD cut off a lot of the good stuff. (.avi version.wmv version).


    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. 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.

    "The Student Nurses"
    If you're expecting a light Corman-like sexplotation flick, this isn't it. Yes, this 1970 effort is a youth sexplotation movie to a degree, but it takes itself so seriously that the tone is different. It's still plenty funny, however, without meaning to be.

    Four student nurses about to graduate face all the trials of 1970, drugs, sex, free love, hippys, etc., and the actors, mostly bad, play it like it was Gone with the Wind. The result is often unintentionally hilarious, but it also provides a fascinating look at the 70's, complete with cliches like one doctor who always says "peace" when leaving the room. He's serious, and so is the film, which makes for a lot of laughs.
