"The Last Shot"
The Last Shot (2004) is a comedy based on the true story of an FBI sting operation, where they pretended to be making a movie to incriminate some mob officials. An FBI agent (Alec Baldwin), brother to an FBI director, who has been relegated to field offices and assignments leading nowhere, concocts the scheme, and gets funding approval. Of course, he knows nothing about making a movie, so he travels to Hollywood, and discovers he needs a script. As luck would have it, he discovers the perfect sucker in Matthew Broderick, a ticket taker at Gruman's Chinese theater, who has written a script about a woman battling cancer and seeking holy Indian grounds of the Hopi called Arizona, that takes place in the grand canyon. Baldwin doesn't let the fact that he needs to shoot this in Rhode Island for the sting to work. I do not want to spoil any of the jokes by revealing more of the plot.
This is the funniest new film I have seen in a very long time. The only disappointment was that it was over so quickly. Toni Collette plays an actress who had a drug problem after her academy award nomination, was blackballed, and did a little porn, but is now clean and wants in the movie badly. Her performance is one of the many highlights of the film. We see her breasts when a mob figure watches her on a porno. IMDb readers have this at 5.5 of 10. It had a limited release last year, peaking at 40 screens. I have to believe it was simply not promoted properly, but it could be that it requires more knowledge of film making than the typical mall audience has to understand it. This is a very high C+. IT is the finest adult targeted comedy I have seen in a long time.

Julie Walking Home (2002):
Miranda Otto, of Lord of the Rings, looking
absolutely beautiful in this Agnieszka Holland film. The first .wmv
is short and unimportant, but the second is sweet.
Out of the Blue (1991):
The quality of this .wmv file is poor, and the image
is small, but it is WELL worth it to see a seldom-capped scene from
this obscure BBC film, and add it to your collection. "Why?", you
may rightfully ask. I'll tell ya why. Catherine Zeta-Jones is
topless and 21 years old. Good enough reason?
The Prophecy II (1998):
It's sequel time, and the Archangel Gabriel (Christopher Walken)
continues to prosecute the second civil war in heaven while various
good angels conspire to defeat him. Apparently the official angel
lore states that the war in heaven will be ended by ended by one of
the Nephilim who, according to this movie at least, are the
earth-born offspring of angels and human women.
It all relates to this passage from Genesis 6 (Revised standard
When men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and
daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the
daughters of men were fair; and they took to wife such of them as
they chose. Then the LORD said, "My spirit shall not abide in man
for ever, for he is flesh, but his days shall be a hundred and
twenty years." The Nephilim were on the earth in those days,
and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of
men, and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men that
were of old, the men of renown.
John Gray clarified the Hebrew myth in his book Near Eastern
Mythology "The tradition in Genesis 6.4 may reflect the
Canaanite myth of the birth of minor gods from the union of El and
human women. The conception of the Rephaim as supermen may reflect
the Canaanite tradition of defunct kings as rp'um, or
Dispensers of fertility. Those giants...are termed n'philim
(lit. 'those who have fallen' or 'perished'). A similar tradition
mentions such a race of primordial giants in the Rephaim. The
identity in tradition of 'the fallen ones' of Genesis 6:4 and the
Rephaim is supported by the nature of the latter in Proverbs 2:18;
Job 26:5 and Phoenician funerary inscriptions"
King Jimmy had a slightly different translation. Instead of
"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days", his version rendered
the phrase in words more familiar to our ears "There were giants in
the earth in those days." Either way, the movie is basically using
that passage to prove that the Nephilim are the scion of angels, and
have walked among us.
In order to create the Nephilim lad who is prophesied to defeat
Gabriel, the good angels believe that one of their kind must take
human form and have some rip-roarin' good sex with Jennifer Beals.
Danyael thinks this sounds like a pretty sweet assignment, so he
volunteers. Beals is fairly pleased with the procedure until Danyael
is just about to do the deed, when he goes all angel on her, drops
the whispers and pillow talk, and starts speaking like Richard
Burton in a biblical movie, solemnly intoning stuff like "dost thou
accept me?" And she's, like, all "what the fuck, homes" until she
sees that he's not kidding, so she says "OK, OK, I accept you" just
to get on with the fuckin' already. Unfortunately for her, angels
aren't really too experienced in the sack. Ol' Danyael kinda
dispenses with the small talk and the tenderness portion of the
activity and commences to pound into her like a jackhammer. Needless
to say, this one sex act places his angel seed in her lady egg.
Hoo, boy is Gabriel ticked off when he find out that The Chosen
One has been conceived! He had been hanging around in hell, kinda
doing a buddy thing with Lucifer when he had to return to earth to
deal with the baby who could someday defeat him. Or maybe Lucifer
just evicted his ass from hell for non-payment of rent. I'm not
sure. Either way, since Gabe doesn't expect to be invited to the
baby shower, he makes it his sole goal in life to hunt down Jennifer
Beals and rip the baby from her womb. Oh, yeah, and while he's at
it, he'll probably rip out her heart as well, just because
heart-ripping seems to be his M.O., his hobby, and a source of real
relaxation in his tension-filled life.
Will Big Gabe track her down, or will Danyael and his boss, the
powerful but cryptic Michael the Archangel (the ever-holy Eric
Roberts), be able to save her?
This is a straight to vid cheapie that needs a few lightbulbs,
and lasts only 75 minutes between credits. It doesn't offer much
entertainment except the predictably weird Christopher Walken and a
few crazy examples of over-the-top imagination. For example, Michael
and Gabriel must battle in the Garden of Eden. Unfortunately, humans
have built an ugly factory on the site, and there is nothing left of
the original paradise except one unhealthy, sparsely blossoming tree
which bears a grand total of one apple. (Someone reaches for the
apple and Walken admonishes, "Don't touch that. Trust me.")

- Kingdom of Heaven took the #1 spot, but took in a mere

R-rating keeps out those under 17; and the 150 minute running

'Caps and comments by Dann:
"Riding the Bullet"
Being a huge Stephen King fan, I was looking forward to this movie. As often happens, anticipation exceeded reality.
This 2004 horror/thriller follows a young college student as he thumbs his way home to see his dying mother. This young man is preoccupied with death, and during his travels, he keeps seeing things in his mind that MAY happen. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.
As time passes, the young man begins to believe that the stranger who is giving him a ride may actually be dead, and even worse, may control his mother's destiny.
A good story, and I'm willing to bet King's version was excellent, but the movie confuses the watcher by showing many events that turn out to be nothing but in the character's head. It's not always clear when these events are or are not the actual events of the movie. By the middle of the movie, your interest starts to stray, and the ending is low-key, tame and without much punch.
There have been many excellent screen adaptations of Stephen King's work, but this, unfortunately, is not one of them. I'm glad I watched it, but I expected much more.
Incidentially, I did this collage a little differently than usual.....actually, backwards. The scene really started with the closeup, and ended with the wide shots, but I decided it made a better collage the other way. Call me crazy.
