"The Trip"

The Trip (2003) is a minuscule budget horror film, vengeful ghost variety. A bunch of collage pals are off to spring break. On the way, one of their number runs over some roadside death memorial markers. This pisses off the ghosts, who clearly saw Spielberg's first film, and a truck with an unseen driver becomes the evil presence out to kill all of the kids. The film makers were also familiar with Duel, as they refer to it in dialogue as being a lot like what is happening to them. One of the ghosts is a topless Mindy Ferguson, who tries to seduce one of the guys in very bad light. This is essentially a chase movie, but shot at night, making it hard to see. 8 voters at IMDb have it at 5.4. I agree. It is not bad for a low budget effort, even though it is derivative, and is hence a C-.

    "New York Wildcats"

    New York Wildcats (2003) is a Seduction Cinema remake of a Joe Sarno film and is part of their "Retro Seduction Cinema" project, where they package a vintage soft core and a new version of their own making on a DVD. They, as usual, simplified the story, made more of the scenes girl/girl, and abandoned any subtlety. Katie Jordan, Ruby LaRocca and Misty Mundae are the features at a high class brothel run by Aunt Charlotte (Chelsie Mundae). Each performs disguised as an animal, then the crowd bids for the night with them. Jordan is a cat, LaRocca is a snake, and Mundae is a peacock. At the same time, the evil thug is demanding free sex with the girls and wants to increase the protection money they are already paying. When he gets in a mean mood from too much cocaine. the other girls decide to rescue Mundae from him.

    Mundae shows breasts, and both LaRocca and Jordan show everything. This is what it is, a short meant to fill out the DVD, with some elements of the main film. I did enjoy the makeup that turned the women into animals. This is a C. It is standard Seduction Cinema girl/girl soft core material, and hence a C.

    Wild Things 3 (2005):

    See if you recognize this movie description:

    The scene is a snooty community in Florida called Blue Bay. The most popular girl in school comes from a very rich family, but can't seem to break her inheritance free from the grasp of her family. Meanwhile, a trashy brunette from the trailer park near the swamp accuses an authority figure of rape. When the first push comes to the first shove, and layer one of the onion is cleared away, it is revealed that Miss Popular and Miss Trailer Trash are actually in cahoots to fabricate the rape as a means to embezzle funds from the former's family. Even though the two girls seem to hate one another in public, it turns out that they are not only in partnership, but are lesbian lovers as well. Oh, yeah, and they also enjoy having three-way sex with an adult male who is in on the scam.

    As the film progresses, we find that other people are also in on the scam, including one of the investigating officers, but as the layers continue to be peeled away, we find that various members of the conspiracy have been keeping secrets from various others, that still other secrets have been hidden from the audience, and that many additional double crosses eventually ensue. The rich girl will end up dead, as will the false rapist, as will a member of the Blue Bay police force. At the end, a sleazy lawyer will turn out to have a far more significant role than originally thought.

    The veil is finally lifted during the closing credits, when we get to see all of the off-camera plotting that we were not aware of.

    I suppose you movie buffs recognize that as the plot of Wild Things. It is also the plot of Wild Things 3. You can't really call this a sequel to the original for a few reasons: (1) It doesn't use any of the same characters. (2) It may take place either before or after the original. (3) It is basically the same plot told again with new characters. A sequel, on the other hand, is a new plot with the same characters.

    How does it stack up against the original? Well ...

    • The first film had some solid star power: Neve Campbell and Denise Richards played the Wild Things, and they were ably supported by Matt Dillon, Kevin Bacon, Bill Murray, Kathleen Turner and Robert Wagner. The second film basically consists of unknowns and Dina Meyer. Even Dina, while always good, is nowhere near the A-list.

    • A gimmicky plot like this only works once. The first one worked because it was original and the plot twists were at least somewhat unexpected. What is the fun of watching it again with the characters re-named? It's like watching a local dinner theater presentation of Camelot after having already seen Burton, Andrews, and Goulet on Broadway.

    • Let's face it, the only thing that stayed the same was the plot, and the first film had a hokey plot to begin with. That was part of the point - it was a genre film gone wild. Besides the originality, what really made Wild Things work was the complete swamp ambience mixed with sleazy charm and a lot of humor. There isn't really much of that in Wild Things 3.

    • On the other side of the ledger, a summary of the the conjunctive abbreviations reveals that film has more F&S than the original and a bit more T&A (although still not very much). Like the original, it has no S&M and A&W. Although holding the root beer content steady, the filmmakers did step up the  hot girl-on-girl action. There is even a lesbian shower scene.

    Summary: Basically a re-make of Wild Things without the fun, the originality, and the stars, but with a bit more nudity.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    We All Feel Slimy Now - The Drudge Report claims that as gross as the Michael Jackson trial has been, it might get worse: the D.A. reportedly wants to question a former Neverland security guard who would testify that he was ordered to deliver a jar of Vaseline to Jackson's bedroom and found him wearing only pajama bottoms, looking sweaty, and accompanied by a young boy.

  • Michael says it's not sexual: he just sleeps with boys who still have diaper rash.
  • Michael will claim they were putting Vaseline on their feet so he could teach the kid to moonwalk.
  • Michael's attorney will point out, in the strongest possible terms, that he WAS, in fact, wearing pajama bottoms!

    Stop Dah Presses! - California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger apologized for saying the US-Mexico border should be closed, explaining that he meant "secured," but it was a "total-screw up in the words I used." He said, "I think maybe my English, I need to go back to school and study a little bit."

  • With enough study, maybe he'll someday be able to pronounce the state he's governor of.
  • Yeah, those immigrants shouldn't be allowed to come here until they learn English!
  • He meant to say that we need to crush de illegal aliens, drive dem before us, and hear dah lamentations of dere vimmen.

    Nerd-vana - 1,000 "Star Wars" fans in London will pay nearly $100 each for a May 16 movie marathon in which all six movies will be shown back-to-back in the story's chronological order, from "Phantom Menace" to "Return of the Jedi." The showing will start at 7 a.m. and end at midnight.

  • After eating movie popcorn for 19 hours, they'll all look like Jabba the Hutt.
  • Normally that would be a really expensive date, but in this case...

    Looking For A Sapp Who'll Take It - Here's a whole new frontier in sports memorabilia: the Tampa Tribune reports that Kincaid Auctions plans to sell a five-pound box of unopened fan mail sent to Buccaneers star Warren Sapp in 2001. Sapp didn't write any of the mail, and he never even read it, or as far as anyone knows, touched it. An auction spokesman called it a "bittersweet find" because you feel sorry for the poor fans who wrote and got nothing in return. Nevertheless, he called it "a spectacular and one-of-a-kind collection for the sports memorabilia enthusiast."

  • I feel sorry for anyone who pays money and gets this in return.
  • So write hundreds of letters to your favorite sports star and keep them...You'll be RICH!!
  • The really sad thing: all the letters have the same return address.
  • Why buy something a sports star never even touched or read? You might as well buy their old college textbooks.
  • Those letters should go back to where they came from: the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
