Brubaker (1980) stars Robert Redford in the title role as the new warden for a prison farm. He first comes in as a prisoner to learn first hand what he is up against, and he is a man on a mission, prison reform. He discovers that there is lots of reforming to do, with corruption, graft and prisoner abuse running rampant. All of his problems are not inside the walls, however, but with the prison board and the politicians as well.

Linda Haynes shows breasts in a gratuitous scene. IMDB readers have this at 6.6 of 10. While it is not especially gritty, it is a good enough yarn, and Redford makes a good do-gooder. C+.

    "Death and the Maiden"

    Death and the Maiden (1994) is a Roman Polanski adaptation of a stage play that takes place somewhere in Latin America after a democratic take-over. It is a dark and stormy night, and Sigourney Weaver is preparing a dinner for someone, and watching the road for them to arrive. When she hears about a likely presidential appointment to investigate human rights violations under the old regime, she is suddenly angry. She eats alone after the power and phone are downed by the storm, and when she sees a car approach, she blows out all of the candles and gets her automatic handgun. It is only her husband, given a ride by a doctor who found him on the road with a flat and a flat spare. Turns out he is the candidate to head the human rights investigation, and Weaver was arrested and tortured by them, but protected his identity, thus saving his life.

    The doctor who provided the ride comes back on a pretext wanting to get to know the husband, and Weaver hears his voice, sneaks out of the house, and steals his car. Turns out she recognizes him from voice, speech patters and scent as one of her torturers, whom she never saw, as she was blindfolded. She sneaks back when he has fallen asleep on the sofa and ties him up. What follows is an attempt by her to force him to confess, and her husband acting as anyman, us, and the judge and jury trying to decide if he is guilty, or she is crazy, or both. The doctor is played perfectly by Ben Kingsley, and Weaver also turned in an excellent performance. It would have been easy to give a one note outrage and fury interpretation, but she managed many layers to her character. The film is examining the entire idea of guilt, justice and punishment.

    IMDB readers have this at 7.0 of 10. Ebert was enthusiastic with three stars, and Berardinelli was far less impressed at two stars. It suffered from the common problem of adapted stage plays, it was overly talky, and had few sets, so was rather static. Weaver shows her breasts early in the film. This is a C.

    Hi, Scoopy

    Not sure if you've seen this new dvd yet - The Best of Charlie's Angels, Season 1. It's got some great pokies from Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith. In the second episode " the seance",  there's pokies from Jaclyn. In the third episode "dancing in the dark", there's a possible nip slip from Farrah when she does the fox trot with an old man. Let me know what you think.

    OK, you talked me into it. I will look at it ASAP


    Other crap:

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • 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.

    Excellent 'caps from the Skinemax flick "Forbidden" (2002).
    • Renee Rea, showing breasts in several scenes, plus frontal and rear nudity in link #7. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)

    • Tracy Ryan, all 3 B's plus a view from the gyno-cam in link #3. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    • Renee Rea and Tracy Ryan, breasts, bum and bush plus lesbian lovin'. (1, 2, 3)

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    Today's movie, the Andy Sidaris classic, "Savage Beach".

    Two female federal drug agents crash on a deserted South Seas island, and Omigosh it's not deserted. Instead, it's loaded with bad guys looking for hidden gold, and more bad guys looking to take the gold from the original bad guys. You get the idea.

    Lame, but fun, with quite a bit of nudity and some OK fight scenes.

    'Caps and comments by The Gimp:


    Here are a bunch of 'caps from a couple of Buttman at Nudes-A-Poppin' DVDs. The women are obviously strippers, but there are also a few pornstars. Everyone shows the 3 B's, and many show up close and personal gyno-views.
