Re: Femme Fatales. I'm kind of surprised that no one is capping this show. There's a lot of quality first time nudity for some gorgeous women. I believe Anya Monsikova (the Russian blonde from the Direct TV commercials) is in tomorrow night's episode.

Scoop's response:

Good point. It slipped under the radar for many, including me. NitroVideo has been working on it, however, and here are his clips from Episode 2.

 

 

  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

The Ward

(2010-11)

Johnny's comments:

John Carpenter's The Ward is a ghost story thriller set in 1966 about Kristen (Amber Heard), who is put into a restricted part of a mental asylum after she is caught burning down a house. In the ward with her are Emily (Mamie Gummer), Sarah (Danielle Panabaker), Iris (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Zoey (Laura-Leigh) who are all in for various reasons. Kristen begins to see a ghost who seems to be of former resident Alice (Mika Boorem), a ghost that recently killed another resident Tammy. Kristen is desperate to break out of the asylum, but it seems the ghost is keeping her there. The ghost is also killing the other residents one by one and the bodies are disappearing in what seems like a cover-up by the doctor, nurse and orderlies. Can Kristen break out of the asylum before the ghost kills her. Well... there's a twist. A pretty stock standard thriller from the seriously out-of-form John Carpenter (his first film in 10 years) that feels like it could've been directed by anyone. Nothing special, a neat twist, but if you think about the story, its setting and what type of people inhabit its setting for half a second, you'll work the twist out. It's not completely obvious, but it ain't much of a puzzle either.

And Amber Heard is always worth watching...

And what happened to the Bluray of this film? Looks like it's been dumped (here in Australia anyway). I guess John Carpenter's name don't sell no more. Oh, and fuck that "John Carpenter's" title. If it don't sell, it's time to give that up.

Scoop's note:

North American distribution is still up in the air. It is supposed to hit Video On Demand on June 8th.

Film Clips

Revenge of the Cheerleaders (1976). Comments by Tall Paul:

When I found that the Fun House had good caps but no clips of this third part of the classic Cheerleaders trilogy, I decided to fill that void (always looking for ways to give back). These 12 clips cover all of the copious nudity in ROTC (an unfortunate acronym, but I didnít name the damn thing).

If anyone decides to watch the DVD (available from Netflix), be sure to listen to the commentary track afterwards. Itís hilarious. Two ex-cheerleaders, reportedly celebrities but pseudonymous here, analyze the film in terms normally reserved for Cahiers du Cinema. Tuna told more, about the whole trilogy and in particular about this commentary, at http://www.fakes.net/cheerleaderscollection.htm

Tunaís essay does have one significant error. No doubt influenced by the commentary, which makes the same wrong assertion, he said that Cheryl Rainbeaux Smith had no nudity in the film except for one brief shot of her backside. Iím happy to report otherwise, doubly so. In the opening scene all the girls are in an open car. Several of them take off their tops and bras, including Cheryl, who is in the rear on the driverís side. Then again in the ďfoam orgyĒ shower scene, she gives us a full frontal, pregnant belly and all. Some viewers might have missed that, because her hair is wet and thereís soap bubbles everywhere (though they donít hide the good parts), but itís definitely her, sheís wearing the same necklace she was wearing in an earlier scene. Iíve given her her own clip in loving respect.

Probably not, but ...

Just for laughs and reference: this pic is making the internet rounds labeled as Pippa Middleton. I'll bet against it, but this woman does look like Pippa.
