"Pixote" (1981)

Pixote (1981) is an acclaimed Brazilian film about street kids staring actual street kids. The hero is Pixote (peewee), who is 10 years old. Before the film is over, he has escaped from a reformatory, witnessed homosexual rape, beatings, and murders by police, robbed, and killed three people. Four escape from the reformatory, a transvestite, his boyfriend, Pixote, and another friend. They go to Sao Paulo and build a nest egg with purse snatching, then buy a large quantity of coke, and take it to Rio to sell. They end up living with a prostitute, Marília Pêra, and roll her Johns for income. When she seduces the transvestite's boyfriend, the transvestite leaves. Then, when Pixote accidentally kills the boyfriend while shooting a John, Pixote leaves to again live on the streets.

This is not a film for the faint of heart, and, by all accounts, is an accurate portrayal of a segment of Brazilian society. It was not an easy watch, the quality of the transfer left much to be desired, and the subtitles could have been done much better. There is no denying, however, that this is a powerful film. Maltin says 4 stars, IMDB readers say 8.2/10, and the film won a lot of minor awards. Marília Pêra shows public hair with a trick, and a very clear breast when Pixote, devastated by killing his friend, tries to nurse. I will award this a C, in that I don't see ANY crossover appeal. Those who like raw art films will appreciate it, and others will find little to like.

    "Money Train" (1995)

    Money Train (1995) is a nearly universally hated action film staring Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and Jennifer Lopez as New York transit authority cops. Snipes and Harrelson are step brothers, partners and best friends. Harrelson has a gambling and a drinking problem. Both are talented cops, and Lopez proves to be equally talented. Woody falls for her, but she is more interested in Snipes. In fact, she shows her breasts in a love scene with him.

    Woody is in deep trouble over his gambling debts, and all three hate Captain Patterson (Robert Blake), who is in charge of the Money Train -- the train that carries the days transit receipts, which is frequently several million dollars. Harrelson becomes increasingly interested in robbing the money train to pay off his gambling debts, get even with Patterson, and start over in a tropical paradise.

    Maltin says 2 stars, Berardinelli says 1/2 star, and Ebert says 1 1/2. IMDB readers have it at 1 1/2. IMDB readers say 5.1/10. With my apologies to the experts, I was entertained by this film, mainly due to the three major characters. Harrelson and Snipes have definite chemistry, and Lopes was wonderful as an Hispanic cop with an attitude. C.

    "Sweet Justice" for the last time

    "Sweet Justice" (1992)

    Sweet Justice (1992) is a remake of The 7 Samurai, and a pretty good one. It stars Finn Carter as Sunny Justice, kick boxer and gym owner. As the film opens, she is beating the crap out of her boyfriend in the ring. Turns out he wanted to know who was the best, and found out that night. Her estranged sister, Cheryl Paris stayed in their home town, got elected to the city council, married then divorced Sunny's first love who is now sheriff, and became involved with a crook who is trying to make a mint off of the small town. The bad guy is played to perfection by Frank Gorshin, and Mickey Rooney has a small part as a sporting goods store owner.

    Sunny's sister tries to break off her involvement with Gorshin when he starts poisoning the water table, and ends up dead of a dog attack. Sunny reassembles her old special forces unit, all women, to get revenge and clean up the town. The unit includes:

    Catherine Hickland as her trainer.Marjean Holden as a sensai. Kathleen Kinmont as a lawyer. Michelle McCormick as a dancer. Patricia Tallman as a shit-kicker bar owner.

    The seventh warrior is Paris' boyfriend. When he joins, just in case there is some viewer who hasn't figured out that this is a modern version of the 7 Samurai, one of the girls says, "seven, magnificent." So we have a group of warriors who come in to save a small town from the crooks. They do, but not without paying a price.

    This is a pretty much unknown film. It is far better than the 4.1/10 that 13 IMDB voters have given it. The art direction and lighting are very good, and the performances are also not bad. The ending came as a total surprise to me. The film spawned a TV series. Don't read the one comment at IMDB. He liked the film because it has a lot of women beating up men, but wrote a complete spoiler. I give this a strong C+.

    Thanks to everyone who sent in comments. I now have all of the images labeled with the appropriate actresses, and have added a few images to the set. I had, in fact, misidentified all three women in the spa. Part of the reason ID was so difficult was that Hickland had a different ear ring on each ear, a simple loop on one ear, and an iron cross on the other. Further, there is a confusing continuity problem. Most of the scene was shot from one side, facing Kinmont and Carter. We see Hickland from the back with this camera angle. She has wisps of hair hanging down the sides of her face. Then, there is a single shot from the opposite side of the pool of Hickland, and the wisps of hair are missing. Not only that, but the hair looks to be a very different color, possibly because of lighting. Tallman, in fact, had no real exposure, but did have some pokies which I included in the new image set.

    You guys know that I love bad movies, and I don't just mean movies that kinda suck, like The English Patient, but I'm talkin' about movies that are just awful. Movies that everyone agrees on. So you can bet that I was pretty excited about a film called Krocodylus, and the film didn't disappoint me. Stoned surfers, extreme sports, sharks, pirates, giant crocodiles, continuity errors, breasts, an Aussie captain with cute names for the murderous crocs, and an American film producer who thinks he can get anything in the world because he has a bushelful of greenbacks. The only thing wrong is that they knew it was a crappy movie, so they had some self-deprecatory humor, therefore not taking it seriously enough to reach the highest levels of badness.

    Vital Parts, aka Body Parts, is a non-theatrical thing with Richard Grieco. (Who is the king of these? Eric Roberts? Dennis Hopper? Grieco? Ice-T? Michael Madsen?) He goes to the Philippines to battle a syndicate which consists of the entire Chinese Government, the Mafia, and the worldwide medical establishment, not to mention all of his former friends and lovers. He, on the other hand, has no money, no friends, no car, no connections, and no weapon. I think it goes without saying that he kicks some ass.

    Wendy Crewson

    Breasts and bum in a skinny-dipping scene from the television movie "Getting Married in Buffalo Jump" (1990). Note the video is only PG rated so this scene is severely cut compared to the TV version.

    Guinevere Turner Guinevere shows all three B's in the UK S&M comedy "Preaching to the Perverted".

    Nancy Cartwright "Flesh & Blood" (1985) has a lot of female nudity, including Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson. Don't have a cow man!

    NOTE: The cable version has more explicit nudity of Jennifer Jason Leigh during the rape scene. The US R-rated video version is less explicit. The uncut version has been shown on some cable stations.

    Chantal Quesnelle and Cherilee Taylor "Paradise Falls" is a new cable series shown only on Showcase in Canada that just started yesterday (Monday, June 25). How hot is it? Well these 'caps are from the commercial preview, not even the actual show! The redhead in the hot tub is Chantal Quesnelle and the skinny dipper is Cherilee Taylor.

    Fantastic collages by Zon from a few older movies.

    Ursula Andress Very hot nude scene from the Euro-trash movie, "Slave of the Cannibal God" (1978). Of particular note is Zon's editing work...the two large images of Ursula are actually composites of several frames!

    Agostina Belli

    Sybill Danning

    Sybill and Agostina is scenes from "Bluebeard" (1972). Agostina is topless and Sybill shows both breasts and some partial bum.

    Jennifer Holmes Dark and brief breast and bum sightings from 1979's "The Demon". Of course we all know her best from the mid-80's series "Misfits of Science".

    "No Alibi" (2000)

    There's really no reason for this movie to exist, except as an excuse to get Lexa Doig nekkid on film (thank the gods for that!). Too bad they screwed that up with ultra dark photography!

    The plot:
    Dean Cain's brother is a small time crook and borrows Superman's BMW for a heist. Big mistake since everyone's favorite psycho, Eric Roberts gets ripped off by mistake. Roberts grabs the license plate number and sets his sights on revenge.

    Along comes Lexa looking mighty sexy. She sleeps with Superdude, then Superdude's brother, then is present when Superdude's brother gets killed by Roberts.

    Turns out that Lexa was sent by Roberts, and is also his adopted daughter and lover. The story falls apart here, but the bottom line is that she was sent to set up the kill and get Roberts' money back. But wait...that's only the first 30 minutes!

    It seems that sometime during her deception and assist on the murder, she fell in love with the Dude of steel, and is now pregnant. But Roberts isn't happy, wants his daughter/lover back, and stalks the "happy" couple until the baby is born.

    During the stalking time, Superdude hires and investigator and gets his cop buddy to help him find his brother's killer. He eventually learns about Lexa and Roberts, there is a showdown, the End.

    By the way, one of my favorite little problems with this story is that even though the cop friend is just a uniformed cop, he somehow manages to be at every single crime scene in the movie, no matter when or where it takes place. Now that's dedication!

    The Caps:
    Crappy, as always. As I mentioned earlier, all of Lexa's nude scenes were very dark. Or in the case of the bathroom sex scene, shot with lighting that made shadows in all of the wrong places. I did a little editing here and there, hopefully someone might like to add them to their collection....for them to poop on! -Sorry, a Triumph the Insult Comic dog moment that I couldn't resist.
