"The Vibrating Maid"
The Vibrating Maid (2000) is a video erotic short from Seduction Cinema with Misty Mundae and Lilly Tiger. Now that Mundae is a huge draw, everything she has ever shot is making its way to DVD, and I seem to be the de facto chronicler of her career. This has a plot reminiscent of the old quarter machine 8 mm loops. Misty is reading a dirty book and playing with her right breast, when she notices buzzing and moans coming from her mother's room. She discovers their maid (Lilly Tiger) in the closet becoming amorous with a chrome plated vibrator. Misty forces her to demonstrate, then to use it on her.
Both women show everything. Frankly, what little dialogue there was is totally unnecessary, and removing Tiger's lines would have helped the film. What we have is nearly thirty minutes of the two women masturbating. Even though I don't expect much from a video short, this one is not especially good. While the two women are fondling interesting body parts, I never detected a hint of real passion. This is a C- at best.

Just thinking ... I wonder if Lorenzo Lamas can tell
the difference between his father and Ricardo Montalban.
There is something I really like
about these Snakeeater movies. They are low budget movies, and they
are quite bad. This film looks bad, the acting is awful, and the
budget was about zero. It's like a low-budget Canadian ripoff of a
Hal Needham movie with higher violence levels and some nudity. Yet
the filmmakers manage to create a certain kind of watchable grade-Z
entertainment by realizing everything is awful, and not taking it
For the record, Lorenzo Lamas plays
Snakeater, a former Special Forces guy who is now a cop, but gets
suspended in every one of the three films, because he breaks the
rules, dammit. Once his superior takes his badge and gun, Lamas
always takes on some high-minded crusade of his own. His character is a blend of
Burt Reynolds and Charles Bronson. Like Bronson, he is always ready
for bloody vigilante justice. Unlike the serious Bronson, but in the Reynolds
tradition, he drinks a lot of beer, gets in a lot of bar fights,
drives a lot of fast vehicles, and battles the bad guys with quips,
insults, and snide remarks.
In this particular Snakeeater adventure, the
Snakemeister's crusade was
rescuing his own sister from some hillbillies who kidnapped her after
killing his parents. That sounds like a pretty serious matter, but
have no fear that it will become a tragedy. Snakeeater gets through
it all with martial arts and sarcasm. He treats the guys who
slaughtered his parents with the same jokey disdain he would use for
somebody who cheated in a bar fight.
In order to battle various toothless
rejects from the Deliverance auditions, Lamas must journey deep into
the tropical jungles of Canada, where the hillbillies are generic
Southerners, but the cops speak with heavy New Jersey accents. Go
figure. The Canadian swamp hillbillies kick
Lorenzo's ass, he kicks back with various forms of -Fu, and so
back-and-forth until a bloody ending leaves
our hero standing proud. Along the way he meets some naked chicks.
Well, not quite the end.
After the plot is completely
resolved, there is a comical scene in which Snakeeater, back on the
force, captures Horshack the Arsonist. This scene has
absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the movie, and is
completely anti-climactic after the bloody and tragic gun battle.
In Snakeeater's corner is former Dolphin running back Larry Csonka
and another cop. Horshack was supposed to have Screech and Mr Kotter,
but nobody showed. Given the presence of Csonka and Horshack, I've
deduced that the purpose of this scene must be to present a perfect
realized example of advanced Stanislavsky acting technique. By the
way, compared to that other cop, Csonka's performance seemed like
Kenneth Branagh in Henry V. Csnoka and his partner always complain that the boys
at HQ don't show them any respect. Here's my advice, boys. Ditch the
lavender colored police car.

Renee Soutendijk is a respected and
sexy Dutch actress who appeared in a couple of early Paul Verhoeven
films (Spetters, The Fourth Man). I guess it's all well and good to
star in acclaimed European cinema, but those European actresses
can't help but notice that Cameron Diaz receives $20 million per
picture, so the siren song of Hollywood is powerful. After all, the
Dutch and Scandinavian films pay their performers in herring.
This movie was supposed to be
Soutendijk's big shot in Hollywood. It wasn't much of a shot. It's an
evil robot film. They thought of Renee for the part because, gosh
darn it, Dutch performers make great robots. Look how good Rutger
Hauer was in Blade Runner.
Renee actually plays two roles. One
is a scientist who specializes in robotics, the other is the robot
created in her own image. The purpose of the robot is to infiltrate
terrorist organizations, perform assassinations, and so forth. It is
even armed with a nuclear capability. The scientist is named Eve, as
is her robot (Eve VIII). When the robot goes out of control and
threatens to explode in downtown Manhattan, she becomes the Eve of
Destruction, get it?
Gregory Hines is a special tough-ass
counter-terrorism guy who is brought in to pursue and destroy the
- The production values and F/X are no better
than an episode of The Bionic Woman. This is particularly
unimpressive given that this film was made about 15 years after
The Bionic Woman went off the air.
The guns in this film never run out
of bullets. At one point, Robot Renee must get off about 1500 rounds
The film rushes to an ending with everyone staring
at timer clocks every couple of minutes as the robot's 24 hour
nuclear activation ticks down.
- Would you give major federal grants to a
scientist using this advanced computer technology (see
picture here)? You just know
that's gonna result in a sophisticated robot. Best of all,
no need for a bikini wax.
Renee was not good at all in either
role, but the writing was so bad than I just don't know how much, if
any, of the two bad performances was her fault. Her American accent
was certainly not believable, but they covered that up by saying
that she lived in Europe as a child before returning to the States
for high school. Then at Klaus Kinski High, when the other kids
majored in French or Spanish, she majored in English with an Accent.
I have admired what Gregory Hines has
done in roles suited to his personality and talents. He is not,
however, the snarling tough guy who has little in his life but
efficient killing. I guess Alan Alda turned the role down.
Have you seen many four star generals
with long bushy sideburns and long mussed-up hair? (see
picture here, same link as above) OK, maybe General
Burnside, but that was the Civil War, and he only had two stars.
By the way, this four-star general stays personally
in touch with all the guys in the field, and is always at the radio
when they call in, 24-7.
Just thinking ... will those new North Dakota wines include a

since it's sorta in real time.
By the way ... I just looked this up, because I didn't know
where "shiver me timbers" came from. In Treasure Island, Robert
Louis Stevenson had Long John Silver say "Shiver MY Timbers",

Mostly Canadian stuff today...
"Queer as Folk" season 3 finalé
Michelle Clunie and Thea Gill top season 3 with some hot lesbo lovin'. No nudity by Thea but Michelle's nipples get some extra attention. Also Michelle (or at least her character) is in the early stages of pregnancy.
"Bliss: episode Leaper"
The hottest episode of the eight-part female erotica miniseries.
No surprise that three of the episodes have lesbian themes.

Day # 4 of the Heather Graham marathon from "Killing Me Softly".
First we have more of the most famous scene with all those great topless shots. Next a couple with her clothes on. See she was not naked during the whole movie, but it sure seems that way.
Finally for today, Heather becomes sort of a "Babe in Bondage", as her husband gives her a little breath control bondage while they are making love.

There are good b-movies, and there are bad b-movies, and this one isn't. :-)
The premise of this absolutely horrible 2002 offering is an expedition into the Everglades to find a missing indian tribe. They wind up finding a monster which is basically a gorilla suit with an alligator head. I've spent many hours in the Everglades in the past, and I can tell you this clunker was NOT shot in the Everglades. I'm guessing they used the producer's back yard.
I could be wrong, but I'm guessing the little bit of nudity is all you'll find interesting in this movie.
