"Is There Sex After Death?"

Is There Sex After Death? (1971) is one of those comedy sketch things with one ridiculous sketch after another. Notable cast members include Robert Downey Sr, and the Andy Warhol icon Holly Woodlawn. The premise is a sex research organization, with a central facility, and mobile crisis vans. Probably the most inspired scene is the ending one, the heterosexual finals of the world sex championships, with blow by blow narration. We have an X rated magician, who, among other things pulls 20 scarfs from a woman's vagina, and produces a mans wristwatch at the end of the scarfs. Then there is the breast enhancement clinic, interviews at a nudist colony, an on set interview with a porn producer who got his start making VD films in the army, and interviews with the dumbest men on the street ever put on film.

It is almost non-stop nudity. The cast list was huge, but I was only able to identify 4 of the women. Iris Brooks shows breasts in the breast enhancement clinic, Helen G Ross does a full frontal in the magic act, and Mar Elaine Monty and Stemanie Skura show breasts in the porno sequence. Many of the unknowns show everything, bit male and female. This is rated X, although the sex is likely all simulated, and the entire thing is intended as a comedy. It is rated 3.1 at IMDb, with only 25 votes. There are no reviews available. It was written by Buck Henry, best known for Catch 22, The Graduate, and To Die For. This is a good example of this genre, wich, thank god, seems to no longer be made, and is hence a C.

    "Virgin Sacrifice"

    Virgin Sacrifice (1956) is a typical jungle film of the era. A white hunter is headed down river to meet is partner, finds the partner dead, remembers witnessing a human sacrifice on an earlier trip, then goes to see his friend, a missionary, and his daughter. The friend is murdered, and the daughter taken to be used for sacrifice. Our hero must track them down and fight to the death with the Indian chief. Yes, it is typical, except for one thing. Linda Cordova has a lengthy topless scene during the flashback to the ritual sacrifice. I could be wrong, but I think this is the only topless scene I have seen in a 1950s film.

    The film is not at all good. It is mostly narrated, the camera spends more time on the flora and fauna than on the action, and their is essentially no acting at all. Further, the transfer looks like it is nearly 50 years old. It is part of a jungle triple feature from Something Weird Video, and it is certainly something weird. This is notable only for the early nudity, and is an E at best.

    The Matrix Revolutions (2003):

    Rolling Stone put it bluntly and succinctly:

    At the risk of understatement, The Matrix Revolutions sucks. It's not that the final chapter in the trilogy doesn't have stunts and visual wizardry to drop your jaw. It's just that it all adds up to a supersize nothing: "the big bubkis," to lift a bit of Yiddish from the script by Andy and Larry Wachowski ...  Morpheus and Niobe are piloting a tin-can hovercraft through a sewer line, shaking their bodies to mimic a bumpy ride in a scene that would shame Ed Wood. was even more to the point:

     ... whatever third movie you envisioned in your head, no matter how lame, has got to be better than this.

    Amen, brothers. Amen.

    Once upon a time there was a film called The Matrix, which came from nowhere to dazzle the world with a great concept and a stunning combination of innovative special effects and archetypal characters. It was a fairly simple movie which feature two worlds:  earthly and virtual. In the virtual world, humans seemed to be living their lives as we live them now but, in effect, that entire construct was simply a computer program (the matrix) being fed into the heads of humans who were simply being harvested for energy by machines. In the real world, the earth had grown black and dreary, covered with the infernal machines, and the very few humans left on the planet were living far underground, trying to escape detection and their seemingly inevitable vanquishment. The real humans occasionally penetrated the computer program in order to accomplish various tasks related to their hope for the eventual liberation of mankind.

    Not really that confusing at all.

    In the sequels, all sense of coherence is abandoned, and there are layers upon layers of reality. Have some of the machines, all looking like Agent Smith, turned against the program for some singular purpose? Or is that what the program would like us to believe? Are there other humans who live outside the Matrix? Do some of them have to do with the very creation and upkeep of the matrix? Perhaps even the humans who live outside the matrix are simply more computer illusions designed by the program to combat the natural human desire for freedom? Perhaps when a human mind struggles for freedom from the matrix, he is cast into matrix 2, where he gets the illusion that he is free from the matrix? And who the hell are the psychic and the architect and the Frenchman? Are they real? Are they part of the matrix? Are they part of the unproven matrix 2? Is this a middle word between the Matrix and reality?

    I was one of the few who liked Matrix Reloaded, except for the interminable fight scenes which defied all logic. Ol' Keanu would fight someone to a virtual standstill until he decided to use his REALLY super-duper powers to triumph or leave immediately. Why didn't he just start the fight on the higher level? Because the movie would have been too short. Fight scenes padded it out to a feature length. There were some confusing elements of Reloaded, but I thought, "OK, it's a middle chapter. Its very job is to intrigue us with mysteries to be clarified in number three."


    Number three is just confusing gibberish. I watched it to hear the explanations and to see how everything got resolved.

    I still have no idea.

    The following chart says it all:

      % positive reviews gross ratio *
    Matrix 87 $171 7.4
    Matrix Reloaded 73 $281 3.1
    Matrix Revolutions 37 $139 2.9

    * ratio is the total gross divided by the opening weekend gross. Great word of mouth results in a high ratio.

    To follow a $281 million dollar film with a $139 million dollar film is improbable under any circumstances, but seems downright impossible when the high-grossing middle chapter includes cliffhangers to be resolved in the third one. Didn't people care how it came out?

    There are some explanations:

    • The $281 gross for #2 was misleading. That really represents four years of anticipation and a sense that it was a must-see follow-up to one of the greatest films ever made. (The Matrix is rated #32 of all time at IMDb.) The actual advance demand for #3 wasn't as great as might be indicated by the box office for #2. The Matrix Reloaded, number 2 in the series, was already the focus of a lot of disrespect.  Indicating a lower level of interest than expected, the third one only grossed $48 million in its opening weekend, about half of what the second one grossed,

    • The word of mouth on #3 itself couldn't have been much worse, so the disappointment at the starting block was reinforced by an even more disappointing distance run. You saw the comments from Rolling Stone and Need Coffee above. Those are the kinds of comments people were making at their water coolers at work. To use an old saw, "people stayed away in droves".

    To answer my original question, most people didn't care how it all came out, and if they did care enough to see number three, they still don't know how it all came out ...

    ... and they told their friends to stay away.

    Because it was a film that was both mentally and physically sloppy, filled with as many continuity problems as it was with logic problems, some reviewers expressed outright anger at the poor quality of this film.

    I couldn't bring myself to feel that. All I could feel was a sense of sadness for the how much difference there was between what this film was and what it might have been, and an even greater sadness for the Wachowski brothers, who seemed to be on top of the world in the Spring of 2003, when they were known as the makers of one of the fifty best films of all time, and had been ranked #27 in Premiere's annual Power 100.

    The Wachowskis' previous film before The Matrix had grossed less than four million dollars, so by the time Matrix Reloaded was about to be released, it must have seemed to them as if they had actually managed to grasp the very heavens. They seemed to have achieved every dream they could had ever had for their lives and then gone far beyond that. Now they are in danger of becoming the Phillip Michael Thomas story of their generation - going from nowhere to superstardom and universal recognition, only to disappear right back into their former obscurity when their 15 minutes expire. Unless they can pull a massive rescue job on their careers, they can forget about those power lunches with Tom Cruise and Spielberg, and should hope that Screech and Danny Bonaduce are still taking their calls.


    Hope Springs (2003):

    This romantic comedy movie was such a bomb in Europe that al Qaeda was jealous. Based on the reaction of the London press and public (think lynch mob), and the fact that none of the three stars has any significant box office appeal in North America, the film was never released theatrically in America.

    I guess you may know why I watched it. If not - Heather Graham does a lengthy nude scene. The film is rated PG-13, so you know the editing was designed to hide everything, but I counted on either the power of the pause button or the presence of deleted scenes.

    general result: unsatisfactory. No deleted scenes, no bum, no nipples, no crotch. Only the sides of breasts and a top half of one of Heather's areola.

    • 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.

    Patsy Kensit

    Patsy is living proof to Americans that not every Englishwoman has Shakespearian acting credentials.

    • Here she is in Timebomb. (.avi version.wmv version). The cast of this movie includes one of the girls from Petticoat Junction, and boxer Ray Boom-Boom Mancini. I haven't seen it, but even Patsy must seem like Judi Dench in that company.

    • Here she is in Angels and Insects. Hey, she may be no match for Dame Dench with Iambic Pentameter, but one must concede she looks much better naked. (.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 .wmvversions 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.

    Not Much Mind To Read - Cosmopolitan, the magazine of sex, fashion and shopping, is adding a column on spirituality. Editor Hannah Borno said, "I've come to the painful realization that men and shoes are not enough to make me happy. The key to true contentment lies elsewhere." Borno said Cosmo readers don't want a lot of "mystical baggage;" they want tips and techniques they can use and info on religions celebrities follow, such as Madonna's involvement in Kabbalah. This "supermarket spirituality" was borne out in a poll cited by Borno, who said over half of Cosmo readers believe in the accuracy and tarot cards and palm-reading, and 38 percent believe in mind-reading.

  • Is this for the Spirituality column or the Stupidity column?
  • If mind-reading is real, why do they have to do polls?
  • 100 percent believe in whatever makes them feel good, whether it's tarot cards, Kabbalah or multiple orgasms.
  • Cosmo readers want to know what kind of shoes Madonna wears when she studies Kabbalah.
  • Cosmo readers went to see "The Passion of the Christ" because they thought "passion" meant it would be sexy.

    All I Really Want To Do - The New York Post reports that the new Victoria's Secret TV commercials are causing a stir, with a squinting Bob Dylan intercut with a young model cavorting through Venice in a bra and panties. Fans wonder why the '60s icon agreed to make his first ad and why he chose lingerie. One longtime New York DJ said it wasn't awful or wonderful, "just strange." Dylan wouldn't comment, but Victoria's Secret said he quickly agreed to do the spots, and there's been an uptick in sales.

  • But mostly because their new lingerie line is named "Lay, Lady, Lay."
  • It's already won a Clio Award for "Creepiest Commercial of the Year."
  • Dylan likes lingerie models, especially when the models, they are a-changin'.
  • Most Dylan fans don't realize that "Blonde On Blonde" was actually about a lezzie encounter between two hot underwear models.

    Hope Springs Eternal - Over the weekend, Dolly Parton performed at opening day of her Dollywood theme park. She said she's also writing a Broadway musical about her life, composing children's songs and planning the expansion of Dollywood. The 58-year-old star declared, "I'll be like Bob Hope, touring when I'm 100...I will never retire. I hope to fall dead in the middle of some great event or some great song I'm singing. Then they'll say, 'Oh well, she went happy and doing what she loves."'

  • And then, they'll demand their money back.
  • By the time she's 100, all her body parts will be synthetic, and she'll just keep right on going.
  • She'll be touring when she's 100, but she'll look EXACTLY the same.

    Don't Forget Condoms - Joe Francis, creator of the popular "Girls Gone Wild" videos full of drunken college girls flashing their breasts, is planning a major brand expansion. Francis wants to put the "Girls Gone Wild" logo on everything, including clothes, a compilation CD of party songs, a movie and a chain of restaurants, with the first one opening in New York's Times Square. He's also launching a new video line, "Guys Gone Wild," in which drunken young men are urged to drop their pants and moon the camera.

  • Really? That takes urging?
  • Something tells me this might not sell quite as big.
  • The "Girls Gone Wild" restaurant will serve beer, tequila, beer-battered fish, and beer.
  • The restaurant will be just like Hooter's, only without the T-shirts.
  • At least once the movie is out, "From Justin To Kelly" will no longer be the worst beach movie ever made.
