This is the last in the series. Part 6, episode "Honni
soit qui mal y pense."
Fallo is the latest movie from Tinto Brass, the czar
of Italian medium-core erotica. The Tint-man is 73 now, and directed
his first film way back in 1963, but is still up to his old tricks.
This particular effort is a collection of six short stories, and some
of them are pretty damned sexy. They are similar in imagination
and romanticism to the best Zalman King erotica, but without the
infernal teasing and excessive camera movement that almost always
causes Zalman to disappoint. Tinto, unlike Zalman, not only promises
the goods, he also delivers them.
Today's story is Honni soit qui mal y pense, and our erotic star
is Maruska Albertazzi. This one is
dedicated to guys who really like the full bush look. This woman has a
Mrs Henderson Presents: (2005)
Just what I've been waiting for. Full-frontal nudity
from Bob Hoskins!
Hoskins' dick aside, I really enjoyed this old-fashioned movie with a new
wrinkle (copious nudity, most of it of the non-Hoskins variety). Tuna
thoroughly enjoyed it as well. If you like the movies of
the 30s and 40s, with their ability to move easily from snappy humor
to poignancy, but wish they had been in color with lots of naked
chicks, then I really believe you'll like it as much as we did. One again, I wrote my comments to complement Tuna's,
and didn't repeat some valuable points he made, so
you'll need to look at both.
Here's the link.
The pictures identified as "group" are the five women
who were part of the show: Kelly Reilly, Natalia Tena, Sarah Solemani,
Doraly Rosen, and Anna Brewster. I think I could have labeled them
better, but I didn't want to essay it since I wasn't 100% sure. Reilly
is the Blonde, Tena is the bug-eyed one, Rosen is the redhead. Of the
other two, Brewster (actually a natural blonde ... er ... I think) is
much prettier, but it just isn't that easy to tell the three brunettes
apart in those poses.
The pictures identified as unknown played other
characters who tried out for the show but didn't make it through

Americano (2005) is a Romantic Comedy/coming of age film that takes place
in Pamplona during the feast of San Fermin - best known for the running of the
bulls. Chris (Joshua Jackson) is a recent college graduate traveling through
Europe with his friends, Timm Sharp and Ruthanna Hopper. Timm Sharp is tired
of exotic sights, and anxious to return home and start his career. Ruthanna
Hopper is a little more open, but refuses to tolerate what she views as the
torture of the bulls. Chris is not at all sure he is ready for the safe
corporate grind. He has been keeping his thoughts, both written and
illustrated, in a journal, when he finds a great reason to stay in the person
of a beautiful, vivacious actress (Leonor Varela). The four begin an adventure
together that includes a bullfight, the running of the bulls, and a
backpacking trip. Each of the four must decide where they want to go
with their lives.
Maria Conchita Alonzo contributed one humorous song to the effort. Dennis
Hopper, as an ex-patriot bar owner (the Americano), does his usual strange
routine, but I suppose is there as a possible role model for Chris.
Leonor Varela loved her part, and it showed. She was absolutely
irresistible. The music was also a strong member of the cast. They avoided
Spanish musical clichés, and presented a score that people would dance to in
Spain. It had Latin rhythms, but also the Middle Eastern rhythms that are
common in parts of Spain. Spain itself was also an important character,
providing more production value than a $100M production could afford to buy.
It has been exhibited at many festivals, and finally will be released on
DVD today. While I feel sorry for the filmmakers that they couldn't
secure a theatrical release, I hope they clean up with this rather nice DVD,
which contains a "making of" featurette, and a special on the music.
There are no major print reviews available, but IMDb readers score it 7.7,
based on 103 votes, and that reduced from the actual mean of 8.2. Women score
it a whopping 9.4. This is a B-. Even if you are not fond of coming of
age films or romantic comedies, you may well enjoy this one.

Dann reports on Puerto Vallarta Squeeze:
Action adventure from 2004 keeps you on your seat, and interested
Set in 1990 in Puerto Vallarta, an
American living in Puerto Vallarta with his Mexican girlfriend is
befriended by an American who asks them to help him get to the American
border. He offers them $5,000.00, so they agree.
What they don't know is that he is an
American government hit man, who is on the run because he made an
unauthorized kill. As they get closer to the border, things start getting
hairy as the authorities, both Mexican and American, start to close in.
Lots of excitement, and a twisty if
somewhat predictable ending. Worthwhile.
Pat's comments in yellow...
The A.P. reports that Kyle MacDonald, 26, had no money and a dead-end job, so he
decided to try using the Internet to trade a red paper clip for a house. Using
a free Craig's List ad, he traded the clip for a fish-shaped
pen, which he traded for a hand-painted smiley-face knob, which he traded for a
camping stove from a man who had an extra stove and an espresso machine without
a knob. He traded the stove for a leaky generator, traded that for a beer keg
and neon Budweiser sign, traded those for an old snowmobile, traded that for a
used van, and traded the van to a recording studio worker for a record contract,
which he traded to a musician for a year's rent on a duplex she owned in
Phoenix. MacDonald says he's close, but he'll keep going until he gets a house
he'll actually own.

Two theaters in Tokyo are experimenting with a new process that will allow
moviegoers to smell films. Special machines have been installed under the
seats in the back rows, and they will emit seven different odors synchronized to
the moods of the Colin Farrell movie, "The New World." For instance, a
love scene will be accompanied by a floral scent, and a tear-jerking scene will
smell of peppermint and rosemary.

Russell Crowe and Mickey Rourke.
Samuel Sheefeni Nuuyoma, the governor of the Namibian province where

because "she loves Namibia."
