"The Hunger: Vampires"

The Hunger: Vampires (1997) is a collection of 4 episodes from the first season of the Canadian made Showtime series. Each of the stories concerns a vampire, but they are not traditional vampire tales. All four had way too much fancy lighting and camera effects for my taste.

In the first episode, Kim Feeney has been admitted to a mental hospital, when they check in a naked Vampire. They end up in the same padded cell, and it seems she has had previous experience with Vampires, and knows him for what he is. They end up having very energetic sex, and we see her breasts, buns, and maybe a hint of bush.

In the second tale, a new vampire has trouble getting laid and finding a meal, and is helped by a mentor vampire, who ends up shape shifting and seducing him. The shape shifted version is played by Janine Theriault, who shows breasts only, and briefly at that.

Tale three concerns a woman who seduces a man and then turns him into an immortal bridge partner for her old husband. Celine Bonnier as the woman shows all three Bs, providing the best exposure on this DVD.

The last tale has Sophie Shinas traveling to France to dine on French cuisine. She is doing great, until a vegetarian turns her life around. She also briefly exposes her breasts.

The series has its fans, but for me, was too much like what it is -- a TV series with mild nudity, and not much else to recommend it. The DVD is bare bones, and doesn't even have a menu, forcing you to watch all 4 seperate episode in one sitting. C-.

    "The Royal Tenenbaums"

    The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) intrigued me for two reasons. First, Scoop mentioned that some people really liked this film, and the reviewer at CNDB commented that Tatiana Abbey gave Gwyneth Paltrow a "snog" and exposed her breasts. I figured it might be my kind of quirky comedy, and couldn't wait to find out what a snog was. It was not my kind of comedy, and I still don't know what a snog is. I too found it derivitive of J. D. Salinger's work, especially Franny and Zoey, and "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" from Nine Stories. I think the aim was to keep me mildly amused for the entire running length. While the cast was excellent, and there was certainly an odd assortment of characters, my snoring would have drowned any family chuckles.

    The film was masterfully shot, and the locations were interesting, but the story just left me cold. C+.

    Movies and Public Stuff:

    I'm running late. The reviews for these two films will be up shortly after the page is posted, and will appear on the list below:

    1. Ecstasy pretty much invented the entire concept of celebrity nudity. Oh, there had been still pictures circulating around that were rumored to be stars, and maybe they were, but in this 1933 film, there was no question. There was Hedy Lamarr, stark naked, skinny dipping, then running after her runaway horse, her breasts up there on the screen, and about 20 feet in circumference. It is virtually a silent movie, and the little dialogue is in German with subtitles.

    2. ZigZag is a film directed by the guy who wrote the Blade movies, and starring Wesley Snipes. And do you know what? It is about the opposite of what you expect. Not an action picture, or an escapist fantasy, but a sensitive story about an autistic kid with an abusive father and a kindly "big brother". It is a damned good movie which manages to be touching without ever stooping to any stirring speeches, swelling music, sappy sentimentalism or phony-baloney romance. The characters seem so real that you think you know them. (Snipes had only a small part as the abusive dad, but he did his usual good job, and the rest of the case was really first-rate.) There is a lot of toplessness, and the last dancer (unknown #1 below) is quite attractive, was topless in good light, and had several lines, but I don't know who any of them are, including the pretty one with the dialogue.

    3. Jenny Frost of Atomic Kitten pops out in concert Sunday in Hyde Park. (1, 2)


    Other crap:

    • The Internet Anagram Server. Gives you anagrams for anything you type in. "Uncle Scoopy" anagrams include "uno sly PC CEO". George W Bush is "whose bugger", or "SOB grew huge". Al Gore is "lo gear". Winona Ryder is "warden irony". William Shatner is "a masher, nill wit". Osama bin Laden is "I, a damnable son"
    • Kylie Minogue has reportedly agreed to pose naked for a new book called The Naked Truth
    • The celebrity gossip site, The A List,  is updated. Note: we know that some of their gossip has been proven untrue, so you have to treat all of it with circumspection. Given that proviso, it's fun to read. The latest salacious accusations:
      • Jim Garner and Brendan Fraser are Fancy Lads. (Garner's wife? A beard.)
      • Catherine Zeta-Jones is 10 years older than she claims. I've often thought that her age must be wrong, and she certainly looks older than 32, but to my knowledge there is no hard evidence to support that position.
      • Tobey Maquire has been romantically linked with Heather Graham, Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst -even though he's bi-. (It's good to be a geek!)


    Pat Reeder's Comedy Wire:

    Pat's words in yellow, real news stories in white -

    * A Berkeley, California, women's group hopes to set a new world record by having 1,000 mothers breastfeed together

    ...This will break the old record for "World's Suckiest Public Event" set by John Tesh's "Avalon Concert."

    * San Antonio got over 13 inches of rain last week, which broke the record for the most rain they'd ever had in the entire month of July

    ...The "13 inches at once" mark also tied a similar record held by Madonna.



    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 I inexplicably determined there might be something of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    Graphic Response
    • Lori Singer, or as we like to call her, "the poor man's Daryl Hannah". Here she is topless while getting it on with Mick "the Mickster" Rourke, in "Last Ride" (1994).
