This is the big-screen version of HBO's Tales from the Crypt.
These clips and caps were culled from usenet. The quality is quite
good, because they were capped from HDTV. I haven't actually seen the
film. Berardinelli saw it
and hated it, but critics were split

How Smokey and the Bandit 3 might
have been even worse than it was
- It was originally shot with
Gleason playing both Smokey and Bandit
- "Gleason, with his delusional
and deformed ego running wild envisioned this role as
the one that would change his image into one of a sex
symbol, and in his mind there was really no difference
in physique between himself and the man who previously
had the role. With the bottle of Wild Turkey and a
chicken leg in hand, he marched over to the warehouse
where Burt Reynolds’ old costumes were kept. More than
an hour later, he emerged wedged and stuffed into
Reynolds’s already too-tight jeans with one of his
shirts covering only part of his torso. He had matted,
and pushed to the back what was left of his hair.
Deranged on whisky, he began to strut around the set
like a rooster in heat whose ass had been set on fire."

Weekend Box Office Results, May 5-7,

weekend last year, and that marked the sixth consecutive
- And yet ... it didn't really
seem like a time to pop the champagne and break out the
noisemakers and party hats. It just wasn't as good as
everyone had hoped. MI-3 opened below $50 million, when
the pundits were calling for it to top $60 million

made the needle budge. It had the worst opening in
history for a film in 3000 theaters or more.
- The brightest spot was -
incredibly - RV, the critically-maligned comedy which
only dropped 32% of its first weekend audience!

- Like the young Indian braves of
long ago, Benjamin Fiedler (Daryl Sabara) is about to
undergo aninitiation rite that will take him from boy to
man. But rather than face the perils of the hunt, he
must endure something far worse--a Bar Mitzvah in
It's not enough that Benjamin
must stand in front of a Temple full of strangers
chanting Hebrew, alanguage he doesn’t understand. He
must also cope with the efforts of his parents, Adam
(Jeremy Piven) and Joanne (Jami Gertz), to splurge on a
party-to-end-all-parties, a mega bash where the Bar is
more important than the Mitzvah and a Jewish Star means
Above all, the Fiedlers must
surpass the "Titanic"-themed Bar Mitzvah given by Adam's
rival agent, Arnie Stein (Larry Miller). With his
circus-sized celebration, Arnie has thrown down the
gauntlet. For the highly competitive Adam, the war is
But when Adam's father Irwin

spacey youngergirlfriend (Daryl Hannah) arrive in their

Every family has their own
dysfunction and neuroses and the Fiedlers are certainly
no exception. Despite this, they ultimately realize that
family is the most precious bond that can't be broken
(but it can be bent out of shape at times).

Apple Sics Lawyers on Something Awful
- Apple is using the old argument
that its critics may not show a picture of its faulty
manufacturing because the picture itself is its
intellectual property! I'm no lawyer, but I don't think
this argument holds any water. The Supreme Court held in
"Folsom V Marsh" that "reviewer may fairly cite largely
from the original work, if his design be really and
truly to use the passages for the purposes of fair and
reasonable criticism." That was in defense of a man who
had literally copied 352 full pages of another work in
order to point out its flaws.
- Yeah, God forbid that Apple
should actually apologize and fix the problem instead of
suing the guys who found it!

"The Heroin Busters"
The Heroin Busters (1977) or La Vva della droga is an Italian thriller about an Interpol attempt to crack down on heroin trafficking. Fabio Testi is deep under cover. The film starts with a whirlwind tour of Hong Kong, Cartagena, New York and Amsterdam, designed to show the International aspects of the heroin trade, and a little of heroin users. Then the film settles into the story of Teste infiltrating the local organization to find the head of the drug trafficking. When a drug sniffing dog and an over-zealous customs official blows it at the airport, they arrange for Teste to be in jail with a junkie who has connections. Teste gives him a fix, then helps him escape. In return, he is introduced to the lower level pushers, and maneuvers his way to the top. Then, his cover is blown, and the last 30 minutes of the film are an extended chase scene sprinkled with fights and shootouts.
The young junkie has a girlfriend, Sherry Buchanan, who wears a transparent top, and then later does in a full frontal having sex for money with Patrizia Webley. An unknown has major pokies in the opening scene in Cartagena.
IMDb readers say 6.7. Comments praise the the last half of the film, and the score by Dario Argento favorite, Goblin. I personally liked the middle third of the film better, where the story was in doubt. The dubbing is better than average, as the film was lip synched in English. The widescreen print is pristine. It has also bene known as "The Dope Way." This is a C -- a competent, watchable Italian actioner.
