"Stay Hungry"

Stay Hungry (1976) is a Bob Rafelson comedy set in Birmingham, Alabama that deals with professional body building, which was not a well known sport at the time, and the "nouveau riche" Birmingham wealthy class. Birmingham did not exist during the Civil War, and the upper class is newly wealthy, and more snobish than old money would be. It features early performances from many who would become major stars, and, in one case, the governor of California. This was Arnold's first film, Sally Field's second, but first adult film role, and the cast also included Jeff Bridges, Scatman Cruthers, Robert "Freddy Kruger" Englund, Fannie Flagg and Ed Begley jr.

Jeff Bridges lived in his parents mansion. Even though they had died, he considered it still their home. He had never quite fit into the place in society that was expected of him. His uncle wanted him to go into the steel business, but he was working with a shady syndicate to buy an entire block of downtown businesses so they could build a high rise for enormous profits. He was responsible for the last piece of property, a run down gym. This is where he meets Arnold, who is training for a Mr. Universe contest the gym owner will hold. The owner is a drunk, and not real stable. Sally Fields works for him, as does Robert Englund. Englund's most important job is to grease Arnold before competitions.

Arnold and Bridges become friends, then Bridges and Fields become an item. Everything starts to unravel when his society friends treat them shabbily, and also when the syndicate realizes that Bridges isn't going to complete the purchase, and starts using strong arm tactics.

Fields, in what I believe is her only screen nudity has a great full rear nudity shot, and then shows her left breast getting back into bed with Bridges. Brandy Wilde shows breasts and buns, and Laura Hippe shows buns, when they are sent to butter up the spa owner. IMDB readers have this at 5.5 of 10, and it never did well in the US, but found an audience overseas. The DVD includes a feature length commentary with Rafelson, Fields and Bridges. The most interesting thing to come out of the commentary was that Arnold told Rafelson in 1985 that he was going to become the governor of California. The film got way over the top in the third act, and I only found isolated moments of humor in the first 2/3, but it is worth seeing for the cast, and the rare nudity from Fields. The cinematography is very nice, we get to hear Arnold playing country fiddle and, as one of the Birmingham snobs said, Arnold had most impressive musculature. This is a C.

    "A Woman's a Helluva Thing"

    A Woman's a Helluva Thing (2001) is a Showtime made for TV comedy, and centers on the publisher of "Man's World' magazine, who is a real man's man -- the ultimate MCP. Slowly but surely, this starts to crumble. He learns that his mother has died, then that some woman, who ends up being an ex girlfriend, is executor of the ranch his father gave his mother when they divorced. He always resented his mother for leaving his father, whom he worshiped.

    Then things get seriously bad for him. He finds out that his ex girlfriend was his mother's lover. His lawyers advise him that there isn't anything he can do. He turns to his usual outlet, women, and brings twins home to bed. He loses all interest when they start caressing each other. It finally gets to the point that he can't even get it up with a girl he picks up in a bar (Sharon Bajer, who shows partial buns and breasts for the only exposure in the film). He abandons the magazine, which is getting ready for a big anniversary issue, and goes out to the ranch to do battle with the ex girlfriend, but learns many things he would rather not have known, including that fact that his father was a liar and a notorious womanizer. Probably his low point is when he awards the crown for Miss Man's World, only to find out that the winner is a transexual.

    IMDb readers have this at 4.8 of 10. I didn't even like it that well. The problem was that the publisher, played by Angus MacFadyen, was in every scene, and I actively disliked both the character and the actor. I did find a precious few laughs. I will give it a C-, as it was technically sound, but even genre fans should think twice about this one.

    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the vids says the video codec:  DivX Decoder Filter & audio codec:  Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with. When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG Layer-3.  A friend of mine told me about compressing the audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
    When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp & asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost too much to buy in my opinion.

    A reader says:

    You mentioned that some users were having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool designed to determine what codec is needed for a video. Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9. The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly larger, and slightly lower quality.

    'Caps and comments by Spaz:

    "Falling Angels" (2003)
    Coming-of-age girls film placed in the 1960s but with 1950s sensibilities. You know a girl won't get pregnant unless she takes off her brassiere.

    "Apartment Hunting" (2000)
    Light comedy released to DVD recently.

    "Savage Messiah" (2002)
    Based on a a true story about a madman who led a free-love religious cult of women in Quebec. Some versions are missing a threesome sex scene.

    "Freddy vs. Jason" (2003)
    A last look at this movie. Katharine Isabelle's uncredited shower double is Canadian stripper Tammy Morris. Tammi-with-a-'y' isn't your average stripper, she's the lapdancer who allegedly performed a sex act on Ben Afflect which caused a 10.5 earthquake in Hollywood resulting in the breakup of Bennifer and J-Lo. Pictures of Tammy at

    Lia Beldam Full frontal nudity in scenes from "The Shinning" (1980). According to the IMDb this was her one and only screen appearance.

    Veronica Ferres
    (1, 2)

    Ther German actress also going full frontal. Scenes from 1999's "Die Braut" ("The Bride").

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    "Nine Lives"
    In this 2002 British production, 10 friends meet at an ancient Scottish estate for a weekend of fun. What they don't know is that the ghost of a former owner, somewhat pissed off that his eyes were gouged out, plans some revenge by killing off the current guests one by one. Although the story's not new, the movie is pretty well done, and scary.

    The movie is a little talky for my taste, but still interesting to watch. There's no real sex or nudity, although Paris Hilton manages to show what little skin was shown. Of course, she didn't show near as much as in her internet clips, and she also managed to keep stuff out of her mouth this time.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

    Another look at Maggie's toplessness, rear and full frontal nudity in scenes from HBO's "Strip Search". As you may recall, there is a little buzz surrounding this one hour drama because the story examines the debate of personal freedoms vs. national security. Plus the events on screen mirror some real life events that have occurred following 9/11.

    The story is actually two stories told in parallel with different characters, but the exact same dialog. We see 2 foreigners (an American woman in China and an Arab man in New York City) who are each "brought in for an interview" by the respective governments. They are not arrested, simply being held "for 24 hours, or 72, or a week, or 6 months, or whatever it takes" to get the answers each interrogator is looking for regarding "terrorist related activities". Crimes have not necessarily been commited, nor will they be in the future. The detainees may or may not even have any knowledge of suspected terrorists or terrorist activities. Regardless, they will be held, questioned and not allowed to see an attorney or contact their embassies.

    I think "OZ" creator Tom Fontana did a good job with the idea (though the script was a bit wordy with some unrealistic dialog). What I saw on screen was that Fontana was not saying whether or not the events depicted were right or wrong. What I took from this was: 'here are two points of view in a very difficult debate. Viewers please pay attention, this debate is really happening around the world and it is extremely serious. Watch and decide for yourselves'.

    But then again, I watch a lot of Skinemax, so what do I know. I could have missed the point completely because there was no girl on girl action :-)
