Thanks from Jr.
All of the feedback with regards to Thumbs vs. text descriptions was very helpful. I've read several great suggestions and will do my best to piece together the best solution for everybody.

Thanks gang.

"Hollywood Boulevard" (1976)

Hollywood Boulevard (1976) is not a 4 star/perfect 10/top 250 film. It is a send-up of exploitation film-making, especially Roger Corman and New World Cinema, and it is a very good one. For a send-up to work, it should accurately parody its target, have lots of funny moments, and have a very high nipple count. Hollywood Boulevard does all three. Two New World editors went to Corman with a project they claimed could be made for $60,000.00 in 10 days. They convinced him, and the project was green-lighted. They came in on schedule and within budget, and the directorial careers of Joe Dante and Allan Arkush began. The film is about Miracle Pictures (if the picture is any good, it's a miracle), who make no budget grade Z exploitation films.

Lets set some of the characters. Mary Woronov plays Mary McQueen, established B bimbo with a huge ego. Candice Rialson plays Candy Hope, who arrives in Hollywood to become a star. Tara Strohmeier is Jill McBain, who gets steady work with Miracle pictures because she shows her breasts when asked. Rita George is Bobbi Quackenbush, friend of Jill and roller derby star who is tired of the men she shacks up with complaining about her bruises. She has been "throwing roller derby matches for years, and is not in jail yet," so is sure she can act. We also have cameo appearances by Robbie the Robot, and Godzilla (see the color images). All of the women show their breasts except Mary Woronov, but even she has a possible nipple slip.

The director (Paul Bartel as Eich Von Leppe) believes in dramatic motivation (Godzilla is told that his motivation is to step on as many people as possible). When Woronov tries to enlarge her part, saying that it will let her better express the social condition, the director says, "This is not about the social condition, it's about tits and ass.

Wait a minute -- something is wrong -- someone is killing starlets at Miracle Pictures. The first is a stunt woman whose chute fails to open, and becomes a smoking hole in the ground (see color 1). Who is the killer? Will Candy become a star? Will Miracle pictures survive?

One of the main reasons Dante and Arkush were able to come in under budget was that they "borrowed" scenes from dozens of Corman films, including The Hot Box, Big Bad Mama, and many more. Some of my favorite moments include:

1) Candy's first casting call. She enters the building, and immediately comes back out with her blouse torn half off.

2) Candy is given a part by someone on the street. He tells her she will play the getaway driver in a bank robbery film. The only catch is that she will have to provide the car. Of course it is a real hold-up, not a movie.

3) Casting an actress for the nude scene. They line up all of the actresses in t-shirts, then spray them with a hose to save the time of undressing. The writer then takes his two favorites to the van which contains his casting couch.

4) The world premier of Candy's first film. It is at a drive-in. A very drunk Candy goes off to complain to the projectionist about the rape scene that she was told would be cut from the film. He tries to rape her.

5) Candy's agent (Dick Miller as Walter Paisley). In their first meeting, he says, "I know, it's hard, you can't get a part without an agent, you can't get an agent without experience ... well, you have an agent now. Go get a part." He drives her to her world premier. When she comments on his car, he tells her that it is a Rolls Canardly. It rolls down one hill, then canardly get up the next one.

6) After the credits role, they are shooting a scene with Candy and Godzilla (see color 4). Godzilla is playing with her crotch the entire time, obviously an homage to King Kong.

Maltin says 2 1/2 stars with some genuinely funny moments, but a schlock film, most interesting to film buffs and Corman fans. 32 people at IMDB have it at 4.8/10. I agree with Maltin ... of course it is a schlock film, but that is the point. I will score this a C+, but strongly advise any exploitation fans to buy this little known film.

    "Tigerland" (2000)

    Tigerland (2000). I bought this based on Scoop's review. Scoopy is right, and may not have gone far enough. Schumacher became tired of doing the same old summer blockbuster Hollywood formula films, and fell in love with the recent minimalist work by Lars van Trier. This script was his perfect chance to attempt that style. He and his DP elected to use hand-held 16mm for several reasons. The camera could be more intimate with the action, as it was smaller and easier to handle, the grainy effect made everything seem more real, and the look was much like 1971 newsreel footage. He assembled a cast of unknowns, then put them through a grueling 28 days where they lived in terrible conditions, did their own stunts, including fistfights that often left them bruised. They faced long shooting schedules, scorpions falling out of trees, snakes, leaches, etc. There is minimal music, and what there is is inspired by the films of Kirosawa.

    This is the single best Vietnam film I have seen. The reason is that it is the most honest. Given the directorial style, we have characters, and what happens to them, and no effects, rousing scores or psychedelic lighting to get in the way of the story. For those of you who were not of draft age in the late 60's and early 70s, the film will not be as personal. Tigerland was the last week of infantry training before you went to the front in Vietnam. You were mostly surrounded by other 18 year olds who didn't want to be there. Most of them were poor, under-educated, and many were minorities. Racial tension was still high, especially as the races had to eat, sleep and work together.

    By 1971, the army had figured out every scam there was to get out of going to Vietnam, and was impossible to get over on. They knew that the worst thing they could do to Boz was to send him to Vietnam, and that was what they were determined to do. Boz knew that anything else they could do to him was better than dying in Nam. Unfortunately for Boz, he was a natural born leader, and actually did feel like he was "his brother's keeper." He began to help other recruits, and, in one of the few good decisions made by the Army in this film, he was made platoon leader.

    Meanwhile, civilians were still in the post-pill pre-aids sexual revolution, and life was sex, drugs and Rock and Roll. Those who returned from a Nam tour found unemployment due to recession, and scorn from the average American for having served in this unpopular war. By '71, it was clear we were losing the war, and were sending bodies to die as fast as we could train them. This film shows all of that, and develops the characters you would actually have found yourself among in 1971 Tigerland.

    The photographic style made the hot sex scene difficult to cap. Not mentioned by Scoopy was a stripper in a tittie bar. Add this to the list of films from last year that I liked better than the Best Picture winner. The DVD has a Directors Commentary, which was as uninspired as any I have ever heard, but was very informative. Schumacher gives his reasons for all of his decisions in the film treatment, and a real insight into the times and the performers.

    I looked at: 

    Big Wednesday. The generational anthem of those born just before the baby boom. Sorry, no naked chicks, but lots of surfing.

    Working Girl.  A very good entertainment movie. Imagine if Pretty Woman had been made by someone with at least some grasp on reality. Melanie Griffith was cast perfectly, and looked radiant. Funny, touching, and as realistic as a Hollywood fairy tale will ever get.  Directed by Mike Nichols (The Graduate). Features a lot of people before they were famous  - Kevin Spacey, David Duchovny, Joan Cusack. 

    Oh, yeah, and some naked chicks. Melanie's vacuuming scene, in which she is clad only in skimpy underpants,  is a classic of screen nudity.

    TomCat did some more eye-chart chicks

    Geri Halliwell
    (1, 2, 3)

    Looks like leaving the Spice Girls has been great for Geri. No longer can anyone call her Chunky Spice (especially since the Spice formerly known as Sporty has earned that title). Here she is in a see-thru photo shoot from Maxim. How see-thru you ask? Well you can see nips in each image! Thanks to Skease for these excellent scans.

    Ludivine Sagnier
    (1, 2)

    If you haven't been over to Charlie's site recently, here is an example of some excellent French nudity. Ms. Sagnier looking fabulous in these topless scenes from "Gouttes d'eau sur pierres brūlantes" (1999).

    Nicole Kidman
    (1, 2)

    Two great scans by Magwolf. These non-nudes are not directly promoting her upcoming movie "Moulin Rouge", but I'd say these are certainly "in the tradition of".

    #1 shows off Nicole's legs, and #2 has some partial side breast exposure.

    Guinevere van Seenus

    Carmen Kass

    Karen Elson

    Three great scans by Noctilio.

  • Guinevere's full frontal with "blue bush" is a nice choice.
  • Carmen shows off her "Plumber Cleavage"
  • Karen reveals a lot of skin, but only one breast.

  • Amber Smith See-thru nipple sighting, some wonderbra cleavage, and finally a topless frame in scenes from "Starstruck" aka "Deception". Vidcaps by Rookie.

    Valeria A model I suppose...But the real question is...with a body like this, who needs to see the face? Excellent scan by Black Sheep.

    Kate Moss
    An Oost

    Two more from Black Sheep, this time we get to see bare breasts and the faces that match.

    Filippa Lagerback Wearing only Saran Wrap on the cover of Maxim.

    Yuliya Mayarchuk I'd say this has 2 1/2 of the Three B's.

  • Boobs: pokies only
  • Bum: Yes
  • Bush: Yes

    Vidcaps from the Tinto Brass movie "Trasgredire" (2000).

  • Tory Mussett
    (1, 2, 3)

    #2 and 3 each show a single breast (the same breast from two views actually). #1 as some extreme see-thru visibility.

    Billie Piper Another look at her recent public "oops".

    Greta Scacchi Brief topless scene, plus partial bum exposure, and very far off frontal nudity from the Italian movie "La Donna della luna" aka "Yound Distance" (1988).
