Emmanuelle (1974) Day Two. This film is meant as erotica, and is one of the more erotic and exotic films I have seen. There is really no plot, but it supposedly relates the process whereby Emmanuelle metamorphosizes from a virginal bride to a wanton women, encouraged by her husband, who works in the French embassy, and preaches open marriage. Along the way, she has sex on the airplane between Paris and Bangkok, befriends a precocious adolescent named Marie-Ange (Christine Boisson), falls in love with a female archeologist (Marika Green), has an affair with another embassy widow (Jeanne Colletin), and then finally becomes a wanton with the help of a horny old man. Damn, it took two sentences to give the detailed plot.
One of the maids shows breasts being raped by the houseboy, two strippers do a girl/girl, in which they show everything, and another stripper smokes a cigarette with her other lips. Kristel, Boisson, Green and Colletin all show everything. The scenery is spectacular, there is a lot of nudity, and some of the sex scenes, while rather tame, are still very hot. Feminists in France were up in arms, calling this yet another exploitation of women, while feminists in Japan had exactly the opposite viewpoint. In the first sex scene, which I mentioned last night, Emmanuelle rolls her husband over and gets on top. At this point in the film, Japanese women in the audience would stand up and cheer. IMDB readers have this at 4.6 of 10, but based on only 894 votes, which is fewer than the number of people who paid to see it opening night in Paris. Some argue that it might have been hot for its time, but is tame by todays standards. For me, it is just as erotic and exotic as it was the first time I saw it, and the optionally subtitled new transfer makes it true eye candy. As erotica, this is a C+, certainly not for plot, but for nudity and locations.

8 Million Ways to Die is a movie I have never seen, but would
like to, despite the poor rating at IMDB. It was written by Oliver
Stone and directed by Hal Ashby. (IMDb
page) It stars the ever-competent Jeff
Bridges. Never mind all that, however, the main point is that a
pre-Baywatch Alexandra Paul did a nude scene with dirty talk and
Response made a sound avi (divx format) of this scene, in
an economical 4.5 meg .avi. I guess he made it from VHS because this
movie has never been released on DVD, at least to my knowledge, but
he captured it at 640x480, and it is pretty sweet. I would like to
this on DVD.

review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
- If there is a white asterisk, it means that
there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined
there might be something else of interest.

Locke, or somebody else besides me)
- If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too
ashamed to admit it.
'Caps and comments by Vejiita:
'Caps from the HK movie "Naked Poison".
The movie is about twisted loser Min (Samuel Leung) who inherits his grandfather's Chinese medicine store and proceeds to whip up aphrodisiacs that allow him to get it on with fine babes. Min seems like a nice guy, as he's tortured at work by evil people like co-worker Winnie (Sophie Ngan). However, he has a dark side, which surfaces when his grandpa dies via snake bite and he watches peversely. Also, he creates a "poison" which revs up the female sex drive and induces amnesia afterwards. The drug is also addictive, a property which Min uses to take over the company and generally get back at those who have wronged him. He also proceeds to lose all sense of morality and begins to rape, pillage and murder. Beautiful model Gwennie Tam shows up as Ling, a kind co-worker who apparently wouldn't mind being Min's girlfriend. You'd think such a boon would smarten the guy up, but unfortunately Min's journey to the dark side turns Ling from potential savior to potential victim.
The movie plot could be that one for a CatIII comedy but the director made a very dark sort of drama.
This is the first movie where Sophie Ngan went topless, since then she has done more nudity in movies like Electrical Girl and Naked Poison 2 (which is not a sequel or anything like this one, HK producers used the same names from hit movies to attract viewers).
Gwennie Tam was an Asian MTV DJ and model, she is very beautiful, but doesn´t show much, in the sex scene she use tape to cover her nipples, too bad.
The last girl, who did most of the nudity on the film, is not listed anywhere, maybe she is in the end credits buth they are in cantonese, and I don´t know a word of it, so I used her character name in the movie.

'Caps and comments by Dann:
From the movie "Patrick Still Lives":
I call this 1980 Italian film a "cult sleazoid" because it's fairly nortorious, and it's plenty sleazy. Director Mario Landi is known for this type of film, and he didn't disappoint.
Loaded with nudity, violence, and gore, this tells of a bedridden nutball who has telekinetic powers that allow him to wreak havoic on anyone he cares to. Kept alive and encouraged by his equally nutty doctor father, he's encouraged to seek vengence on the people responsible for his condition.
Be sure you get the unrated version of this, for maximum sleaze. It's in Italian with English sub-titles, but you probably won't care. :-)
|Another salute to the busty actress by C2000. Today's 'caps feature plenty of near misses and teaser pics from the movie "Bug Buster" (1998). This is a strange movie that's caught somewhere in between really lame critter flick, and very funny toungue in cheek comedy. Adding to the "funny or crap" puzzle is a cast is full of familar faces like Randy Quaid, James Doohan, George Takei and Bernie Kopell!
