* Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

* White asterisk: expanded format.

* Blue asterisk: not mine.

No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Intimate Moments

Intimate Moments is a 1981 French film in the "couples erotica" genre. Also known as Madame Claude 2, it is a sequel to Just Jackin's Madame Claude.

A French newspaper has uncovered a sex scandal where the French government is making use of a madam to help seal agreements with several foreign investors. They don't have quite enough evidence. Madame Claude (Alenandra Stewart) has the goods on everyone, and they should have known better than to take her on. We then see a succession of her girls entertaining clients.

This is an unremarkable example of couples erotica, neither especially good nor bad. It has naked women, simulated sex and a plot, and earns a C meeting all the genre requirements.

21 IMDb readers say 4.1.

Lust Connection

Today one last shot at Glori-Anne Gilbert and then I can get on with my life. Caps and four clips of more nudity from Glori in "Lust Connection". If you like Glori-Anne, get this movie! In three days I only scratched the surface.










An offbeat buddy comedy. Stretch (Tim Roth) and Spoon (Tupac Shakur) are best friends working in a band with Cookie (Thandie Newton). Stretch is one crazy junkie. Spoon is young, sensible and calm. He cleans up after Stretch's messes. One New Year's Eve, Cookie overdoses and ends up in a coma. Spoon makes a resolution that they will kick the habit. But what becomes harder than the habit they are trying to beat, is the bureaucracy they face. So with a pair of pissed-off drug dealers on their tail and cops who have mistaken them for killers, Spoon and Stretch desperately take to the streets of Detroit in search of their goal: rehab.

Pilar Soto in Beneath Still Waters
Jenna Fisher didn't expose any naughty bits in Blades of Glory, but she did some funny and sexy scenes with Will Ferrell. You will find the first scene funnier if you know that she is pretending to be a sex addict to get into the Sexaholics Anonymous meeting with Will Ferrell, who is a sex addict. (She's actually a rather prim goody two-shoes.)

The Comedy Wire

Mexican telecom tycoon Carlos Slim Helu has knocked Warren Buffett out of the second-richest person slot with a fortune of $53.1 billion, or $700 million more than Buffett. Thanks to the booming Mexican economy, he's added $4 billion to his fortune since last month.  But he dismisses criticism that his Telmex company is a monopoly and he doesn't give billions to charity like Buffett and Bill Gates.  He told Forbes, "Poverty isn't solved with donations," and building businesses does more to help society than "going around like Santa Claus."

*  That must be why all the people of Mexico prefer to live THERE.

*  So he's a greedy, monopolistic billionaire?  See, another Mexican takes a job that should belong to an American! 


Monday, the Hard Rock Café chain unveiled plans for a $400 million Hard Rock theme park in Myrtle Beach, Florida.  The park will have tons of rock memorabilia and a 10,000-seat theater with daily live music. It will be divided into five "zones": British Invasion, Country Music, '70s Disco/Punk/Glam, American Music and the feelings behind the music. There will be a '60s café, a reggae theme water play area, and three roller coasters: one blasting '80s rock, one playing Southern rock, and one based on an undisclosed rock band.

*  It's the Rolling Stones Roller Coaster: it starts out scary and exciting, goes through a lot of ups and downs, and ends up dull and creaky. 

*  Here's a tip: avoid the Buddy Holly Airplane Ride. And the Tunnel of Courtney Love.    


Last night, Haley Scarnato was voted off "American Idol" after being criticized by Simon Cowell for trying to cover up mediocre singing by showing off her hot body.

* We then enjoyed a number by guest superstar, J-Lo. 


On this day in 1954, Bill Haley & The Comets recorded "Rock Around The Clock," generally considered to be the first "rock n' roll" record.

*  Back then, "rock 'n' roll" meant "R&B played by a white guy old enough to be your father" ... Just like it does now.
