"Flavia, the Heretic"

Flavia, the Heretic (1974) is an Italian/French co-production nun-sploitation film set in the mid 1400's. The story includes the true Moslem attacks on Italian coastal cities, and presents a picture of nuns sure to win disapproval of the Catholic Church, but guaranteed to bring people into the theaters. There is also a strong feminist theme. Flavia is sent to a convent by an abusive father, where she is obviously questioning convent ways. She goes over the edge and escapes when her friend is tortured to death. She escapes with another friend, but is soon caught and punished. Her second escape attempt coincides with the arrival of Moslem invaders, who seduce her, and help her break into the convent and extract revenge. The leader of the invaders also beds her, but she is not overwhelmed by the experience. Sh4e is eventually caught and skinned alive as a runaway nun by the church.

Several women show everything, but, alas, not any of the ones they have credits for. IMDB readers have it at 4.9 of 10. The nudity is excellent, but the story a little lame and predictable. C.

    Sex and the City, Season 4:

    Wow, they just keep churning them out don't they? Hard to imagine I have watched 72 episodes of this stuff.

    Other crap:


    Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the 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.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick 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 Brainscan:

    French movies are much more like French cheese then they are like french fries, in that they are an acquired taste for most Americans. It's not a matter of skill or taste, but of story, composition and pacing. Two movies I looked at this weekend are perfect to illustrate the point.

    Catch Me if You Can is a sure enough fine American movie, entertaining and well-crafted with first-class folk at each of the skill positions. I liked it, the Mrs. liked and even my 15-yr-old nephew liked it. And shock of all shocks, there was even some exposure from a cutie named Ellen Pompeo. She played the protagonist's "best date ever." I'd watch it again in a couple of years and will enjoy it again when I do.

    • Ellen Pompeo (1, 2)

    Then there is L'Ecole de la Chair (School of Flesh; 1999). A character-driven drama in which the face of a particular actor or actress can be on the screen for minutes at a time. It is not so much slowly paced as leisurely paced, and by the end you wish the movie would go on or, at least, be the first part of a series to rival some George Lucas "creation." I loved it, the Mrs. tolerated it and my nephew thought it was the smelliest piece of crap he'd ever seen. He has yet to acquire the taste.

    Two women in L'Ecole gave up some goodies. There is the luminous Isabelle Huppert, who in her forties is still worth looking at her. You see mainly her bum, which was one of the great natural wonders twenty years ago but is still worthy of inspection.

    And then there is Roxane Mesquita, who has the face of an angel and a form like mortal sin. Sad to say, she is not much exposed in this movie; but if'n you are interested, Charlie has on his site some of the most beautiful and sexy caps of her you will ever see.

    Just for fun, I edited caps of two other women found on usenet.

    Made one collage of a bikini-clad Drew Barrymore in Far From Home; the cappers name appears to be MC, and the boy knows what he's doing.

    Second collage is of Laurence Kertekian, in the shower, naked as a jaybird, in L'Amour

    Movie clip and comments by Oz:


    In my last contribution, Jr made a comment that it may have been a body double for Goldie Hawn in "There's a Girl in My Soup". (In the scene when she is shown naked).

    After taking another look, I think if there was in fact a body double, it would have to be an amazing bit of editing. There are a couple of frames where a cut could have been made after the relevant frame but I couldn't see where a cut could have been made beforehand.

    Here's a QuickTime movie I made of the scene for you to review and judge for yourselves.

    Elena Anaya
    (1, 2)

    The Spanish actress showing breif breast views in scenes from "Lágrimas negras" aka "Black Tears" (1998).

    Eva Santolaria
    (1, 2)

    Very nice toplessness in scenes from the Spanish movie "Susanna" (1995).

    Minna Turunen Frontal nudity in the Finnish movie "Umur" (2002).

    Pilar Punzano Topless and a near frontal flash in scenes from "Amor, curiosidad, prozak y dudas" aka "Love, Curiosity, Prozac and Doubt" (2001).

    Silvia Marsó Also topless in scenes from "Amor, curiosidad, prozak y dudas".

    Olivia d'Abo
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    DeadLamb 'caps of the British actress looking great barely dressed in scenes from the 1994 ensemble comedy "Greedy".

    Despite the cast of big name actors like Michael J. Fox, Kirk Douglas, Nancy Travis and Phil Hartman, this movie only made about 12 cents in the theaters.

    Kari Wuhrer The B-movie favorite showing some partial breast exposure with a hint of nipple (before she had the implants removed). Thanks to Squiddy.

    Beyoncé Knowles
    (1, 2)

    The Destiny's Child singer showing off abs, cleavage and a J-Lo sized booty during her appearance on this past weekend's episode of "Saturday Night Live". Thanks again to DeadLamb for the great collages.

    Nicole Kidman
    (1, 2)

    A brief glimpse of a lovely, pink nipple in scenes from "Moulin Rouge".

    Jennifer Sky
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

    Most folks know her from the extremely bad syndicated series "Cleopatra 2525" (2000). The show about an exotic dancer who is frozen in 2001, then thawed out in 2525 by two female warriors who are fighting evil robots which have taken over the world.

    Anyway....here are some Señor 'caps of Jennider topless in scenes from "My Little Eye" (2002). Unfortunately, some of the 'caps were very dark and needed the brightness adjusted. The result, a couple of these are not the prettiest 'caps, but at least you can see the goods.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    God's Gift To Comedy Writers - Two young men from Maldon, Australia, drank a lot of beer in a nightclub, then hit on a surefire way to end the night by having sex: they allegedly decided to break into Tarrengower Women's Prison, on the theory that the inmates were so sex-starved, they couldn't strike out. They were captured before they got inside the prison and charged with trespassing. One prison source said, "These guys thought they were God's gift to women."

  • God's gift to desperate women...
  • Just as well: imagine how they would've felt if they HAD struck out in a women's prison.
  • The women would rather have had sex with each other, in which case these guys would've broken in to watch.
  • They did end the night by having sex, though: they were thrown into a men's prison.

    Not From Simon, Anyway - While writing a backstage article on "American Idol," a Newsweek reporter overheard Simon Cowell complaining that Kimberly Locke obviously outsang Ruben Studdard because he was determined Ruben would be in the final two. He was relieved when Kimberly was voted off anyway. Cowell admitted that the judges try to tell the audience who should be in the finals, adding, "You're not getting accurate judging. You're not."

  • This is like watching a singing contest run by Olympic skating judges.
  • When Randy says, "You did your thang, dawg," it's possible the dawg didn't really do his thang.
  • Does this mean the chubby girl with spiky hair who sang really well DIDN'T get fewer votes than the hot blonde in the miniskirt? Well, no...
  • I knew something was screwy when Simon started complimenting Ruben on his "washboard abs"...They're actually smorgasbord abs.

    As Long As It's Not "Vincent" - Simon also admitted he thinks Clay Aiken will win "by a whisker." He might be right, considering that Aiken's debut single is already #1 at Amazon.com due to advance orders, and he hasn't even cut it yet. Ruben's is #386.

  • But Ruben's single pulled ahead after Simon ordered 10,000 copies of it himself.
  • Simon's lying again! Clay doesn't HAVE a whisker!

    He'll Never Be Terminated - Arnold Schwarzenegger is nearly 56, but he says he intends to make "Terminator" movies for years to come. He said that thanks to his fitness training, he's full of energy and considers this to be the "middle term of his career."

  • And his team of plastic surgeons are just getting started!
  • He plans to keep playing the Terminator until he's 112, by which time, he'll be mostly synthetic parts himself.
  • He'll be the first Terminator who needs a defibrillator.
