The Trailer for Brothers
of The Head
- "Brothers of the
Head is the feverish, mind-bending odyssey
of conjoined twins Tom and Barry Howe who
were plucked from obscurity by a 1970s music
promoter and groomed into a boy band.
Grappling with impossible love, artistic
rivalry and a dark inner life, the twins
embrace their freakishness and spit it back
in the form of searing Punk Rock."

Ellie Parker (2001-2005)
Ellie Parker is not a film I enjoyed, and I don't really want to talk about
it, so let's talk about I film I did like, Parenthood. Even though Steve
Martin can be over the top, I adored that film because the subject matter had
to do with the trials of being a parent, something I was all too familiar with
at the time. Thus, nearly every scene and every word of dialogue resonated
with me. I felt the same way about Planes, Trains and Automobiles, as I was
traveling extensively on business when I saw that film, and had nearly been
snowed in at Atlanta airport for Christmas.
I would imagine a childless couple would find Parenthood a slow watch, and
someone who has never traveled would not be rolling on the floor as I was when
Steve Martin takes on the rental car clerk. A humorous telling of the trials
and tribulations of any experience common to a group of people usually makes
for a good comedy for people in that group.
Unfortunately, Ellie Parker is about an Australian wannabe actress living
in LA with a jerk musician boyfriend. She has an analyst, a best friend who
competes for roles, and a strange agent (a cameo appearance by Chevy Chase).
He life consists of lots of auditions, but no roles. Naomi Watts plays
Ellie. a challenging role for her in that she got to play many different
characters in auditions. I am a big fan of Naomi, and think Tank Girl is the
best comic book movie ever made, partially due to her inspired performance.
She shines in Ellie Parker as well, but I simply couldn't relate to this
material, because of a lack of common experience with her character.
The film was originally shown as a short in 2001 at Sundance, and got a
favorable reception. Based on that, the auteur kept shooting shorts based on
other episodes in the life of the same characters, and eventually had enough
to cobble together a feature length film. Technically, the film is a disaster,
and for anyone who gets through the entire film without spewing their dinner
all over their home theater, there are numerous deleted scenes that are even
worse, but despite simply incompetent camera work, it is probably acceptable
to people who can relate to the situations, and fans of Hollywood insider
comedy in general. The film is probably funny if you have experiences in
common with Ellie, and I would guess that people in the industry might find it
hilarious, thus making it a C- on our scale. IMDb readers say 5.5.
As for me, Tank Girl remains my favorite Naomi Watts film.

Quenchless Desire (1993)
Ching gip was Hong Kong's answer to Fatal Attraction. You all know the
basic story but, in true Category III style, they manage a few wrinkles.
Our hero, Wai, is head of a luxury car dealership, and is happily married
with a young daughter. His best friend aims to screw a different woman every
night. In the opening scene, Wai arrives to meet his philandering friend, and
is attacked by a scissors-wielding crazy woman who severed her lover's penis,
and is now after all penises. This is a foreshadowing of things to come.
One night at a party for an important Japanese client, two great looking
women show up. The randy friend picks up one of the women and has his way with
her. The other (Usang Yeong Fang) is interested in Wai, but he resists. His
resolve is short-lived. When Wai's wife has to go away for a wedding, he gets
lonesome and gets together with Usang. Big mistake. He wakes up on the morning
that his wife is to return and finds himself wearing a titanium chastity belt.
Usang starts off with minor annoyances - like kidnapping their daughter - but
eventually gets really irritating.
This is a C. This is a fairly fast watch with good nudity and some nicely
demented twists on the story.
IMDb does not yet have a vote count, and there are no linked reviews.
The flubtitles are not worth showing you, but include, "I cut! You stink
man. I hate you most." "I must beat you, bitch." "Nut, dare you beat my wife?"
|Usang Yeong Fang
shows everything in several sex scenes.
|The highlight of the party scene is a
huge serving of sushi using a naked woman as a serving dish. An unknown
(the other one of the two from the party) shows everything having sex
with the best friend.

Jennifer Love Hewitt says she's thrilled her TV show "Ghost Whisperer" is a hit
because that means she doesn't have to show her boobs in a movie. Fans are so
obsessed with her large breasts, they have their own Internet fan site; and
Hewitt says before her TV hit, she was swamped with offers to do movies with
topless scenes. But she said she's had to share so much with the public over
the last decade, from hair colors to weight fluctuations to her love life, that
"my naked body shouldn't have to be out there in
the public. I need something that's mine alone."
* Tell you what: If she'll do topless scenes, I'm willing
to let her hair
color tips be hers alone.

* Even the male ghosts keep whispering, "Show us your gazongas!"

The DVD of Steve Martin's "Cheaper by the Dozen" was released May 26, and police
in Beckley, West Virginia, say that within 24 hours, thieves had hit at least
three local Wal-Marts and stolen 122 copies of it. Similar thefts were reported
in two nearby towns and in Virginia. Surveillance video showed a man and women
entering a store, being joined by three accomplices, stuffing a storage box with
"Cheaper" DVDs, and escaping out
the back door to a waiting van.
* Police are baffled...So are movie critics.
Eminem has signed to star in a big screen version of the classic TV western,
"Have Gun, Will Travel." Details have yet to be decided, but it will probably
be updated to modern-day Detroit with only loose connections to the original.
That seems likely, since the original "Have Gun, Will Travel" starred Richard
Boone as gun-for-hire Paladin, who liked to sip brandy, quote Shakespeare,
listen to opera, play chess and use violence only as a last resort.
* The only thing that will remain in Eminem's version:
